This Technicolor photo set of Estelle Chan by photographer Miles Aldridge captivated me with its surreal vintage flare.
Everything is so sublimely artificial and constructed; a glorious Stepford Wife presentation that one can hardly help editorializing at a glance.
Oh thank you, Rachel, for this…and your other invaluable contributions to this post.
I just received a very special custom piece from The Odd Portrait: a wrist cuff engraved with a phrase that holds deep meaning for me.
Solve et Coagula is Latin for “dissolve and rebuild.” It is an ancient term that represents complete alchemical transformation, mind body and spirit. After spending 20 years increasingly occupying beds and hospitals with misdiagnosed health issues, a couple of months ago I was finally diagnosed with a genetic immune disorder for which the treatment involves injecting a substance to break down my own tissue and following it with a substance to rebuild my immune system. It is literally a process of Solve et Coagula! But the emotional, mental and spiritual alchemy of this illness has been far more striking. I now have a beautiful reminder (which I’ll wear to treatment!) when I have trouble motivating myself to keep shooting for recovery.
As for the other designs you’ll find on the site, influences include “80’s punk and glam to 90’s grunge and rock n roll. Outdoor music festivals, urban graffiti art, and post apocalyptic dystopian movies.” I love the spirit and independence of this shop!
The Odd Portrait was founded when the creators got tired of selling factory made jewelry with huge seller fees and limited creativity. They went their own way, and now every piece is handmade and unique! No two are ever exactly the same. My kind of rebels.

I don’t understand a word of the text, but I just browsed the entire collection of handmade creature bags by Atelier Iwakiri.
These could be wonderful conversation pieces for the shy and/or introverted to carry around (yes, my mind went there because I am terrible at initiating conversation with strangers. But once I begin talking, I’m fine).
Why do I call it THE Cat Dress? Because once you’ve seen it, all other cat dresses don’t seem quite catty enough.
Some fine craftsmanship, eh? This stunner debuted at CatCon LA (Yes, that’s a thing. No, I haven’t gone. Yes, I absolutely would.)
