Sorry my posts have probably been getting a bit repetitive with the background and poses. So finally, here is a bit of a refreshment I hope:
*Vintage 1970s Sundress: thrifted (Oregon, this year). I love cotton sundresses from the 70s because you can enjoy the era's amazing prints plus its own retro inspiration from the 50s without engulfing yourself in polyester.
*Shoes: from Italy a few years ago. They are sorta ugly-chic to me, a phenomenon on which I will definitely blog at a later time. They have a clog look that I sorta hate-but-love combined with the slightest bit of weird fetish shoe wear and sorta remind me of these shoes:
(detail from the Arnolfini Wedding 15th century Van Eyck Painting). I love me some freaky chopines.
Yes, that is my desk and hells no it is not normally this tidy. The earrings are my beloved Tawapa pair.
And now for something completely different... A giveaway!
Wow, I can't believe I have 50 followers already and so many regular commenters. So, this is a small but fun giveaway for followers. The details:
*prize: two vintage 50s/60s books pictured above plus a postcard from me and stickers, maybe some buttons and who knows what else I might throw in there (in good taste of course!) Both books have inspired paintings or drawings by me and I'm sure would also be great material for collages.
*to enter : you must be a follower, sorry. I'll have a facebook giveaway later. Please leave a comment by May 20th 9 PM West Coast time below. Mention this giveaway on your blog and get 2 entries. Be sure I can contact you if you win! I'll be drawing names from a hat because I like to do certain things old skool like that.
Hey, let me also mention this Sunglasses Giveaway on another great blog that ends in two short days. You already know that I just love statement sunglasses. Because if Sophia Loren has taught us nothing it is that what is the point of wearing sunglasses if you are not going to make a statement?
Thanks everyone and good luck!
