my clothing & accessories design
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!

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

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.





sewing like the wind

Today is a major sewing day. So I will just say this (and possibly a little more later). I just finished monkeying around in the template code and added a HOME button, because that was sorely lacking in this blog. Click it! It works. It is on the right, right over there. Well it won't do any good unless you are on an older post. So click PROMO CODE, to remind yourself that today is the last day for using the nifty 10% discount, joyously celebrating our first year of fully automated web-shopping. And then click HOME. Okay don't bother. The home button disappears. I'll have to fix that later. I have to go swim and buy garlic-smoked lox now. That was anticlimactic.

update: I put the new :: home :: link at the top left. Sure you can see it now, but it disappears too and is useless. Furthermore, my headers on the right drop out when you click on an older post. I almost give up. But I don't. Because I do have that dogged side, and you sure do need that when messing with computer code. Any suggestions from experts are welcome in the meantime.

update: I'll fix it later. I have sewing to do. See why I need an egg-timer?? I am setting it now. And not getting up. (Hey the HOME link stays! Click on egg-timer and the HOME link does not disappear! But the right side is all funky. What did I do? Help.)

update: My mini-diagnostic. When you click on an archive month, 3.2006 is nowhere to be found. All the right headers remain in place. But click on a previous post and right headers go haywire. Right headers do not go haywire, however, when you click on links to previous posts within the post's text body. So I am inserting this tag into places it might not belong to try to fix the problem: MainOrArchivePage (with the <> of course and the proper close tags) Should I sandwich the headers separately with this tag too? I am going to try that next. I am done sewing so it is okay now. Now that I sandwiched everything, everything drops out on the right when you click on an entry. I'll bet the MainOrArchivePage tags control that very thing. I have little idea what I am doing but I am having fun. I like computer code.

update 4 days later: my new HOME link totally works from every page. It took a few days to propagate. That happened before when I re-uploaded my new sidebars. It took a day to propagate. Strange. I thought this was push-button publishing. I want instant results! But it worked.
