inspiration: flaunt, louise bourgeois + mcqueen


I love the photo spread in FLAUNT of a young Louise Bourgeois and several of her installations, including one of my favorites Spider. It's made of steel, tapestry, wood, glass, fabric, rubber, silver, gold and bone! And that amazing bird dress by Alexander McQueen — wouldn't it make a fantastic wedding dress?

button machine




I finally splurged on a button making machine and am hard at work making fabric covered buttons for my shop on ETSY. It is incredibly addictive.

amelia


Sorting through a collection of my grandparents' photos - my mom came across this amazing photo of Amelia Earhart. She thinks it was taken at the airstrip in Pennsylvania where my grandmother flew (she was a pilot at 14, soloed at 16 and had a private license at 18)! She and Amelia were both brave and fantastically stylish -
