frock

the frock collection by anja louise verdugoPainted clothing, mostly from the 20’s and 30’s, based on ebay photos of things I couldn’t buy. An upgrade from the low-quality ebay photos, and a way to have these items without actually owning the frocks.

Bumper Fashion Special No. 19

you know, i’ve been skimping on the bumper fashion specials lately, mostly because i haven’t come across a lot of summer stuff that i find very inspiring (especially since at least 90% of what we’re exposed to fashion wise is from the north, where they are now settling into deep winter – jackets, coats, scarves, layers etc). so if you’re a southern african like me (or any other southern cousin), you’ll be experiencing 30+ degree heat by now – and black tights are the furthest things from your mind. that being said, i’ve done my best to collect some summer goodness from around the web. note: i’m not counting the spring / summer 2010 shows, which i covered pretty extensively here, here, here & here
