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

magazines of current interest

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.





shower curtains

This is going to be a very banal post about my needing a new shower curtain, so I don't blame you if you don't read it. But I am in a kind of banal mood these days, thinking about what people eat for lunch, and how much they spend, and how much I spend on lunch, and what I should eat for lunch. That type of thing. There possibly will be more banal posts today, but hey, what are you going to do. It reflects my mood right now. Personally, I really like to learn about the minute details of people's day-to-day. What does that say about me? That I'm human I guess. Why is Facebook so popular? I rest my case.

So I need a new shower curtain, and I can't for the life of me find the maker of my current one.* It is perfect in my bathroom. All neutral and pretty. Really thick and great quality. I bought it at Pluto in Jamaica Plain (Boston) back in the day. So here begins my internet search for a replacement. And lucky you, you get to come along on the shopping trip.

*If you have seen a shower curtain like my perfect glorious current bubble one in the shops, please share your finds! In the comments.

Choice #1: Venice! from Target, $24.99
This could definitely work. The black and white.
And I am very much in the mood to travel these days too.

Choice #2: Ice Circles from Bed Bath & Beyond, $19.99
Could this be it? It is a great replacement. So similar.
But now I am kind of hooked on Venice.

Choice #3: Pebbles from Bed Bath & Beyond, $19.99
Also a very fine replacement. No complaints.
Except after seeing Venice, I want a change.

Choice #4: Surfers, from Bed Bath & Beyond, price not shown
I love surfers. This could be a very good option.
Must check out the goods at lunch!
