YELLOW LIKE THE SUN which is shining directly into my eyes, LIKE DAFFODILS, LIKE MUSTARD?

I am wearing a jaune jacket that I made about, oh I don’t know, a long time ago. It has a beautiful assymetrical collar fastened by a big bold graphic brown wooden button. This article has been in the designer’s closet for a while and I am unhanding it. It will be for sale on my Etsy shop for $225.00 for the jacket and skirt.

Custom-made Life

March 14, 2011

Saturday was such a nice sunny day that my husband and I rolled freestyle and took pictures of eachother wearing my custom designs. 

On me: 4-panel pencil skirt with ruched side panels and cargo pockets.

On him: custom 5-pocket jeans.

Both are available at my Etsy shop at

On me is an example of THE ALEXIS long-sleeve ballet neck tshirt.

I entered this drawing I made in a contest for my friend, Naome K. She is to be married in June and we started designing her dress when I stumbled across this contest on Beautifully Modest’s facebook page


through my friend, Hannah, who makes accessories and has Dawling Couture on facebook, too

style=”color: #808080; font-size: medium;”>I know it–it’s a rabbit hole. Anyway, if you spy this on facebook, offer a “like” or a cheerful comment as the contest ends on March 19th.

Oxblood, chartreuse, and Prada

March 6, 2011

It is the 6th of march and C’est beau. A certain artist used to keep a journal. And everyday he would comment on the weather. It’s nice today. The weather was that interesting sleepy kind of drowsy drizzling spring waking up kind of weather.

The jacket is an older design of mine– a one of a kind. If you think this would be great cut for spring, comment what kind of fabrics you would like to see it in. Should I make  a bunch like this and post it on Etsy for YOU?

By the way, very soon new spring things will be found at me Etsy shop at

The blouse, purse and skirt are thrifted. I paid 10 cents for this skirt. Basic black A-line (not A-frame, loves, you are not a house). It is military commission. I should show you other ones I got at the same time and the cool ways I altered them (later). Basic black A-line-you will wear it about a million times in your life. Also, a Khaki A-line. HEY! not everything in your closet needs to shout. Some things are so classic, so under the radar that…well…wear something that eveyone will not notice.


See the cool leather tassels that I added to my thrifted bag. The marriage of oxblood and chartreuse.

Speaking of  the uniform, this photo is a nod to mistress of working-class chic Muiccia Prada  who loves uniforms and whoever gets the inside joke, MAKE A COMMENT!
