About Sea of Shoes fashion art contest.

Standard

Jane from Sea of Shoes recently held a fashion art contest. There is also a dedicated flickr gallery.
Wow, there are so many creative people… I wish I could at least draw…

Anyway, I picked some of the pictures that I for one or the other reason liked more, but in general – the whole gallery is pretty cool. (p.s. where it was not written on the picture, I indicated under, who’s design was being interpreted.)

Fashion Illustrations. Achraf Amiri.

Standard

I read an interview at qqueenofhearts. The interview itself didn’t pose that much of an interest to me, but I did take a look at the artist’s, who was being interviewed, blog. WAWAWEEWA! How awesome are those illustrations.

Ironic and so creepy…Just in time for Halloween.

Happy Halloween or just nice weekend if you don’t care ­čÖé

Cheers.

Opinion: trends

Standard

I am aware of fashion trends, because I read fashion blogs and take a look at runway pictures and etc. But I am not one of those people, who, as soon as the trendy clothes come in, runs to the store and gets everything that is currently on trend. But I do think, that trends are simply a good timing to buy something that suits your taste and you know that it will give you a lot of joy.

For example, studs are not my thing, so I would not buy something of this trend, even though I do think it is pretty. But when I see clogs, I remember the picture of my parents’ wedding and my mom is wearing CLOGS in that picture! I would definately get a pair of Miu Mius or something similar (if I had the money :D) and even if god forbid I didn’t wear them, I would pass them on as a family heirloom.

As a kid I always wore faux or real fur and always felt so warm and cozy. Since I come from the country where winters are quite cold, I do want to be properly prepared for cold weather, but also look cute and not just wear all puffed up down (pun, much?) jacket. So, people who like fur, should get something nice this season. The time of fur has come (ask Karl Lagerfeld), and it means that there will be lots of variations and you will be able to pick something that really suits your fancy.
