It’s amazing what happens when I don’t post. I go down from my huge page view of 12 per day to zed. Whoa. What a following I have!
I did a MASSIVE shop update last night and today, and we now have 49 items in the Dreads and Curls stable. I have relisted some of my partner’s lovely items, and with the addition of some of my newer pieces and more vintage jewlery, this will be it until October with the exception of some more things coming in weekly. Not a lot – and I can honestly say it’s time for me to move on from the hats. Belts and some killer tops are coming. More on that later! But for now, collars and such.
I’m going to make a grand shop announcement TOMORROW, but for the month of July, I’m going to do a BUY ONE HAT, GET THE SECOND HALF OFF SALE. Seriously. These tiny hats need good homes!
In other news, we had a lovely, relaxing fourth with my lovely parnter and her friends and family. Good food and fellowship all around. I’m working this week to make pattern corrections on my sock, and will be reknitting my capelet as well. I’m also applying for real jobs, but no one is calling me for an interview. I think I will shut up about that for now.
In sad news, Jon alerted me to a sports’ story last night that is pretty pathetic. Former U.S. National Ladies Figure Skating Champ and a part-time local resident with family ties down here was arrested and extradited to New Jersey from being at the upper echelon of a meth ring. Nicole Bobek, wha’happen? I know, I know – here it comes. Somewhere, Tonya Harding is sitting and saying, “Damn, ya’ll, maybe they’ll leave me alone NOW!” Truly, the mugshot, which our local gossip columnist put up on our local paper’s Web site (I’m NOT linking it) is all kinds of sad. This former glamour girl, who reminded me so much of my sister, now has cropped brown hair and rings around her eyes. This is not always a pretty sport, folks.
In other news, Christian Lacroix sent out what may be his last couture collection. Here’s a slideshow on Jezebel. Watch it and weep for this lost art. This one is my favorite:
Seriously, yo, wait until you see the capelet with vents and real fur collar I am working on (fur came from Goodwill). My homage to Lacroix, sweetie.
I think that will be it until tomorrow. I’m sure I’ll have something else to rag on from the velvet cage.
