File this under Another Good Way to Waste Time on the Web. Along with this week’s Olympics, which I’m crazy for, are the fall fashion shows held in New York City. I love heading to the New York Times website and looking at all the clothes. I kept finding things I wanted to share with my sister Christine, who is there in New York currently serving a mission, as she has such style and embraces different ideas in fashion easily.
This is not representative–just what I like this morning.
First up is Anna Sui, or How Many Patterns Can I Wear at One Time? And I love them all.
And what’s wrapped on her hands? Everyone of his models had these stringy-faux-glove thing.
Girl Gone AWOL From the Skating Rink.
And in nearly every season there’s a picture I call the Feed Me picture. A model that looks like she hasn’t seen real food in about a year, with emaciated looks (beyond what the show has in mind) and too-skinny of legs and body.
Tommy Kane, a guy who always has his sketchbook with him, recently drew what he thought they ate:
Love the pencil shavings bit.
Okay, carry on. I’ve done enough time wasting this morning. I had a late night last night, staying up to watch the Men’s Figure Skating Finals, loving that Lysacek’s style of skating won out over the jumping Russian Plushenko.
As I watched I was also able to quilt on my long-long-long-term quilting project: my appliqued Medallion quilt that I began in Washington DC. For some reason the quilting is taking FOREVER. One reason is because I was trying not to use pencil to mark up the quilt top, trying to use masking tape to keep my lines straight. Last night I said to heck with it, and with a ruler, drew the quilting lines. It’s amazing how much faster I can go if I’m not struggling with strips of blue tape all over the place.
Last bit of news: we had an earthquake this morning, rattling my nerves. Ever since I was in the HUGE earthquake in Lima Peru as a child, any little shaking makes me tingle all over.
