So, a few days ago, my boyfriend received his modified “Remedy” tee. He loved it! I can’t wait to show you pictures.  :3

I bought quite a few more tee-shirts, and I’ve been busily “wrecking” them into all sorts of amazing things. The Aliens vs.  Samurai tee has been combined with another tee and some Kimono print fabric to form a beautiful casual haori (Kimono jacket). I’m so proud of it, I’ve worn it 3 days in a row!!

Also, I am busily embroidering automotive style pinstripes… onto a pinstripe jacket. :D It’s my first big embroidery experiment, but I’m having a lot of fun with it. When complete, it will be my “Club Jacket” for The Wild Lost, the Marquis of Vaudeville Society of Creative Personalities. (My title in its hallowed ranks is Lady Naomi, Harbinger and Couturier of the Wild Lost).

I think purple must be my “power color” right now… it’s really been appealing to me lately. :3 Perhaps it’s the beautiful bluebonnets we’ve had for the past week? Or the peacock feather I bought to decorate my black cocktail hat?

Speaking of purple, after picking up an INCREDIBLE fur capelet (yeah, I know it’s spring – I’m preparing for a super stylish Fall in Manhattan!) at the Resale store for only $25 USD, I stopped by a boba tea/donut place run by a beautiful young asian lady. And I had a LAVENDER-flavored milk tea! It was absolutely delicious. I must find this in tea bag form. ^o^

ALSO, the biggest news: I’ve finally opened my Tee-Wrex store! Check teewrex.etsy.com when you want your tees beautifully reconstructed! I currently have the Corseted Sides modification available on the site!

You know you want one... :3

I am also currently drooling over these pocket watches, especially that first one, and all the Celtic Knots and Art nouveau… <3 In my book, the more ornate, the better!!

I have started to notice the close similarities among popular abstract decorative art styles. These include automotive pinstriping…

Celtic knots…

Western leather applique…

and, of course, Art nouveau.

They all have the pleasing combination of interconnected gentles curves and sharp points. Floral inspirations, geometric shapes… I wonder why this sort of thing shows up so often? Either way, I don’t mind, it’s all beautiful to me. :3

In other news, I saw the first batch of The Sartorialist’s photos from Tokyo, and I was absolutely ecstatic. Japan deserves the likes of Scott to represent their beautiful fashion, especially after Jessica Simpson’s horrendous presentation on VH1 this past monday. v_v

Speaking of Japan, Ashley and I have been developing a dream of opening a shop over there some day. Honestly, to move to Japan to design and sew for various awesome people would be all my earthly dreams come true. :D So we are working slowly but surely towards our dream, and I’m not letting fear take over!! *determined*

Anyway, it’s back to my embroidery for now. I hope to see you all again soon!

Love,

Naomi, a.k.a. Kagitsune
