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!

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

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.





spam and other unwanted intruders

Now they have a new spam out there, "New MySpace Message"

You've got a new song from Terry on MySpace!

Why didn't they think of that one before, I wonder. Add that one to the long list of spams including the mean German one that says I am lazy or something, and the Chinese one from "mao" and the one with the subject "Re:HI". That's a brilliant title. And the endless PayPal ones wanting me to confirm my account, and the "all products for your health!" and the "our store is your cureall!" which I always pronouce CURE-EEL everytime I read it, for some reason. Probably because cure-all isn't one word. Duh on them. Or how about the ones that come from my own address back to me. Telling me about luxury watches that could change my life the way it did Tiffany's. Yeah, I love those too.

So my friend told me about SpamCop. I think I am going to sign up, as soon as I figure it out. It is a yearly subscription to their service for about $30. and it will block spam. Sign me up!

I am so tired of responding to unwanted solicitations throughout the day. Like the phonecall that turns out to be a recording of a stuttering friend-like type so you think he's a real live guy. Yeah right. Or the phonecall that beeps fax sounds in my ear. Last week, I started to receive text message spam on my cellphone! The nerve. I didn't even have a text message package. It's a double good thing we got rid of our cellphones.

And then there are the endless catalogues I didn't subscribe to. I read in Apartment Therapy that you should call each unwanted catalogue and unsubscribe yourself. I have called 12 catalogues so far. Sheesh. Apparently you can also request to not receive offers for new credit cards. I get about 12 per week. I must find out about that list too.

Once I unsubscribe myself to all the unwanted mail, catalogues, email, phonecalls, and other unwanted intruders, I figure I will receive only about 3 pieces of mail, 1 phonecall and 4 emails per day. But they will be mine, all mine.
