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.





what is the moral of the story?

Funny, when I was just posting to blogger about the site being fixed, it was posting "with errors;" i.e., not posting at all.* And the other day, when all the server issues started, Blogger was not working at all, and so I had to paste my whole article I wrote about Cameos into my email and save it as a draft. But all my links would be lost! So I pasted the HTML version into my email and saved that too. Now I am in the process of redoing the links, decoding them from my 2 emails.

Some days, when there is computer issue after unfixable computer issue, it hardly seems worth it. With computer issues, you have to wait, and wait for the issue to fix. Or open a trouble ticket and get ignored. What is the moral of the story?

I don't know yet.

We all live in flux so get used to it.

There is no good service in the world anymore.

Patience is a virtue.

Step away from the machine.

I just don't know. Anyway, coming soon, the Cameo post.

*Here was the Blogger error message, which led my to this paranoid thought: What if a giant Java script-eating worm infected my whole computer, also devouring my emails, including the 300 spam emails (because worms are not picky in that way) and my SQL Server for my site?

Yes, for now I am going with, "Step Away from the Machine."

There were errors. (Hide details ...)
