east-meets-west minimalism

my site

the look
dressy utilitarian

my concept
useful, economical, modular pieces that can be mix-matched in numerous ways (because why can't fashion be useful and lasting? I think it can!) So I say Maximize your Minimalism!

inspiration
furniture (especially chairs from the 50s and 60s), uniforms, repeating patterns, menswear, Oscar Niemeyer, traditional Japanese architecture, the Rimpa School and Ogata Korin's 8-Point Bridge, Matisse, bromeliads, succulents and other waxy flora

particular loves
bamboo, coral, moss, woodgrain, silhouettes & other cut-outs, plastic, low-resolution images, the photo copier, off-registration prints, Max Ernst's Lunar Asparagus, NYC fire call boxes that look like Kannon, Fauvist color sense, the Noguchi Museum, pretty much all of Abstract Expressionism

magazines of current interest
Domino, Elle Decor (British), ARTnews, Art in America, Wallpaper

favorite heel style
the wedge, but a sleek modern interpretation

second favorite
the stiletto

current shoe obsession
alas, the sneaker. (because I live in nyc and walk a ton!) but not too sneakery of a sneaker. more of a sneaker disguised as a shoe, like a mary jane style or a high-tech looking black one with a metallic accent. how about Royal Elastics? I must go try some on. I really like the non-sneakeryness of their styles.

things i did this morning


  1. ate breakfast (actual breakfast pictured above: pb toast and coffee. how do you like this coffee cup? my friend just gave it to me. it is accurate down to the raised seam, but it is ceramic, not paper.)
  2. wrote a blog entry
  3. got involved in looking at too many websites while looking for pertinent links
  4. searched blogger to see if my blog has been indexed yet
  5. searched "perlov blog" and found mine and a few others that talk about me. neat
  6. searched "elaine blog" and found this one
  7. thought about writing to all elaines who have blogs just to say, "hey my name is elaine and i have a blog too!" but didn't.
  8. tried to find out how i can get stats for my blog
  9. checked my web stats when i couldn't figure that out
  10. banned myself from the computer
  11. set the egg timer and got to work

Hi, this is Elaine, one of the very first Elaines on the net.

My father wanted to call me "Brunhilda" but my mother gave me this name, instead.

Got your link off of my own blog. By the way, everyone is changing over to haloscan because typing in the code here stinks, it often fails to work.

Hang out at my blog, I talk "business of blogging" rather a lot.
