a virtual tour of the wunderkammer

There has not been much posting here of late because there has not been much in the way of dressing up. As I mentioned earlier, garment thread HQ is soon to be moving and I think that has made me a bit reluctant to start any new projects (and at the moment putting on anything more elaborate than a pair of jeans and a shirt is considered a "project"). Anyway, I thought I'd take a moment here and share some pictures of the space where the magic has been made for the past few years in all it's shambolic glory!

The plaid and beat up Converse say "Yeah, I might know a thing or two about cars so don't even think about ripping me off", but the ruffles are a bit of a sartorial eyelash flutter.

It's not so much that I haven't been taking pictures (well, okay . . . yes it is partially that), but I have been incredibly lazy about uploading them from my camera. Here's an outfit that looked much better in person than it does here. I love doing the jacket-as-cape thing.

In other news, garment thread HQ will be relocating at the end of the month. I hope this will provide some of the space and privacy needed to reinvigorate this much neglected blog. As always, stay tuned.

Here I am proudly showing off one of my new tomato plants (which, incidentally, I did not plant while wearing this get up). This outfit is slightly problematic in that its still a bit too chilly to go bare legged, but introducing tights to the ensemble with it's polka dots and strong colours seemed too tricky. Once again I will freeze in the name of fashion. The top is from my great aunt and the skirt is from the Rodarte for Target collection.
