NYFW Street Style S/S 2012

I know its taken me forever to post these fashion week S/S 2012 street style shots, but here they are...
I took pics of the fabulous people below, outside of Lincoln Center,  before I went inside to see the Mara Hoffman collection.

I really really really really love street style, and if you do too you should check out the Bill Cunningham documentary...(ITS ON NETFLIX INSTANT WATCH, and is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen....) GO WATCH IT RIGHT NOW.

Anyway...all of these ensembles inspired the heck out of me!
I want a Cambridge Satchel Company bag/backpack soooooo badly!
I keep seeing them everywhere in NYC, and I don't know how, but they just keep getting more perfect. What color is your favorite? I'm thinking of getting either red or neon yellow, but all the colors are so fun/ me out!
Mid-evil's never looked so cute!
I fell in love with this monochromatic look.
Such a great simple dress, and ahh that color!
I couldn't stop staring at this girl, what a beauty!
Boys wearin' color-blocked, new-and-improved oxfords :)
Love the contrast of this tattoo and the opening of the shirt.
I don't think these two girls knew each other, but their contrasting-yet-matching outfits made such an outrageous statement!

To everyone pictured above: thanks for letting me (or not letting me .....) take your picture. The world says thank you for lovin' and promoting the art of fashion :)

Greek Sculpture Drawings

I had to go to the MET to sketch ancient clothes for costume history a couple of weeks ago, & I weirdly liked how these two figures turned out.

Do you think I can have them molded into miniature sculpture versions to put on top of my future wedding cake??  I mean the male figure (i.e. groom) will have a head........but that would be acceptable right?

1969 Barbie Box

Currently I'm blogging/facebook stalking doing hand tailoring homework, and I can't stop starring at my sewing box.
All last year I lugged around an awkwardly big plastic art box with my scissors and bobbin cases spilling out in every direction. This year, however, I sew in style, with a cute vintage Barbie case by my side. It almost makes sewing hundreds of whip stitches bearable. Almost.
Skipper is my hair-spiration.
Tailoring homework. These are the guts of the jacket we are making by hand.
