thanks easter bunny! bok bok!


happy easter everyone!! i have to admit that i am not a holiday person. i think that happens a lot when you come from divorced families where, for the holidays, you have to be torn in two--and have a drama filled day. maybe not, but that was surely my situation. but, i am trying to be a bit happier during the holidays at least. i told my husband that i was going to wear these ears all weekend long and he didn't believe me, until i did. and i am telling you... just like the wig, everyone thinks i am in a play, or crazy or something. i made these cute little lace ears, copied from some designer that i don't feel like looking up right now. jean michel basquiat? no he died. anyway i think it has michel in the name somewhere. note: looked it up, it is maison michel (designer of all chanel hats and head pieces). sorry peeps, when i tell you i don't keep up with fashion i am not kidding. anyway, i thought the perfect time to sport them would be now. this is my--in mourning of the holidays with a touch of *trying, look. i am also wearing some spat type situations on my legs. i made these out of some old leather pants, and i wear them to add a little oomph to a boring outfit. i also saw them on lovemaegans blog, in a little different style. i also made this tee last nite in two seconds, and screwed up a chambray shirt, that i was trying to make into a work of art with lace insets. it is now a work of art that will sit on my form forever, not to be worn... it is completely fucked up.

thank you for sharing your easter stories with me. i love reading about what you are all doing. as for me... i will not be dyeing eggs, but i will be tie dyeing some tights. my puppy and i will be spending easter together, as the husband has to work, "what else is new" *she says with her usual passive aggressive tendencies*. "yes honey, it's fine... go work, i have TONS (not!) to do here". haha.

sending love to all of you, and this is your last chance to get your t-shirt diy pics to me. giveaway officially ends manana. e-mail me here.

    My family wasn't too big on holidays either. No real idea why.

  11. Wow, I think those spats are perfect, they change the appearance of shoes, too!

    Dyeing tights is heck of a lot more useful than dyeing eggs, methinks. I'm not a big holiday person, either... ...we don't have kids and I've never felt that connected to our religious calendar (I don't belong to church). Happy to have couple of extra holidays, though!
