Art Contest

I did this interpretation of a runway piece of my choosing s/s 2011 for, but i think she left me out of her gallery by accident.

I ended up choosing a chiffon dress from Just Cavalli's S/S 2011 collection.

Here it is in all its glory. I am proud of it bc it's the first drawing/piece of art I've done in years. This was done with pencil, watercolors, glitter pens, and fluorescent origami paper.


My First Vintage Hermes Scarf!

Usually these scarves are around $300 and I've just waited to find a good deal. Finally found one!

Green 60s Caftan

This was a recent etsy purchase.

I usually don't get anything sleeveless bc of my fat arms, but i can't resist the shape and style of this caftan.
I need to make several in different colors with crystal beading on the side.

Gorgeous vintage piece.

VIntage Crystal Perfume bottles

the first two are from w. germany. and the last two are Czech perfume bottles.
these are from my own personal collection. hand cut, brilliant, old!

vintage czech perfume bottles

Czech Vintage Crystal Perfume Bottles. Just gorgeous, delicate, intaglio cut bottles. They date from 1920s - 1930s, and most are signed with an acid etch stamp: made in czechoslovakia on the bottom. Very collectible. Most of these are going to my dad's store in Taiwan, except for the last one pictured. I'm keeping it for myself!

1970s Swimsuit

My latest etsy find: a gorgeous graphic 1970s swimsuit! I love one pieces!! I pretty much only wear one pieces, as I'm from the school of thought bikinis should be reserved for those with perfect bodies.
