Lady Leah in Mandate

Gingham Crystal Girl Barrettes by Angel Lust available on Etsy....

Little Miss Leah is many things,all of which are absolutely delightful!!! Once a dedicated intern to Mandate of Heaven as well as a loyal customer. She is an Angel Lust protoge' and a thriving fashionista! Leah is dead set on picking a few local designers to wear and promote and love. She is a private customer on a street level coutorier way. Any small fashion company is lucky to have little Lady Leah around...

This dress was my FAVORITE on her yesterday. Its still available since she didn't buy it. Someone just as cute needs to own it. A cute daring darling that is. You'll look like a modern day Lolita riding hood in this.

Its still available so soon it shall be posted on their site for sure!!!

Flower Barrette by Angel Lust available on Etsy Click Here!!!

I am determined to own a couple of Carissa's sexy little playsuits this summer. They are perfect for brunch and cocktail hour in the East village or hip parts of Brooklyn. I'm a fan of her floral prints and backless numbers. Here is a look at the first thing I have my eye on.

I'm going to pair one or two of my embroidered barrettes with this number should I buy it!!! Springtime is all about flower power,done up in daisies or cherry blossom romance.

If you don't live near Mandate of Heaven you can visit their online shop!!!

Peter Jensen, Graeme Black, Christopher Kane, Charles Anastase, Aquascutum

This collection embodies what I love about London Fashion Week. The craftsmanship is still there, but the designers who present here aren't afraid to be whimsical, to be outlandish, to be anything but normal. The inspiration here seems to be Heidi, what with the florals, the lace, and the little lederhosen-like suspenders (look #4). Gosh, I want that blue puffer coat!

This show took place in Windsor Castle, I believe, and boy, was that an appropriate venue. The keyword here for Graeme Black is "decadence." The looks progressed from relatively pared down to full-on, with that crimson (silk, I think) folded dress being a particular stand-out.

Quite a departure from where he started a few seasons ago, but one thing is constant: Kane can make a dress. I love the piecey construction, which lends these dresses some structure. I particularly like the first dress shown here... it's got a "warrior princess" vibe to it, I think.

Charles Anastase can do no wrong. His geek girl is back from the previous season, along with some remnants of the Spring look -- platforms and sheer bottoms. A truly ready-to-wear collection, these looks are street-ready.

Oh, Aquascutum, you can do no wrong. The omnipresent lace (that first dress is a little Prada, no?) is nice, but the billowy manta ray-like raincoats are my favorite. Love it!

It's All About Options

If any of you have ever tried to wear a boot with a cuffed denim capri you have likely discovered the age old attachment limitation for the lower leg, finally it seems that the very clever Babette Ultsch of Kitties Lair has come up with a pretty great solution with her latest release. Babette has previously released a great assortment of retro platform pumps and mules, and some really great boots, the Florence Boots offer a multitude of options to the wearer, in particular a denim cuff topper attached to the boot upper. The boot also comes with 2 boot heights, with both the traditional top and the cuffed top a click away, so basically 4 boots in one - and easy to adjust the size with the menu accessed via clicking the right foot portion of the boot.

The Florence Boot comes in an assortment of shades and finishes, including Phython, Urban Leo, Velvet Black, Stellar Black, Pearl White, Chili Red, Dark Brown, Gold Sequined, and Silver Sequined. The boots themselves have an attractive and sexy shape and nice details and are in fact and update to the previous Florence Boot with improved sculpties and easier fit, in addition to the denim cuff topper. The cuff is only in the single shade of blue denim, but they seemed to work very well with most denim in my collection. Boots are sold singly by color or in three pair fatpacks for best value.

To complete my rolled denim look I chose the denim jumpsuit from Armidi, a skinny scarf from Maitreya, a Silver Jacket from Little Rebel, Black Wooden Bangles from M.R.M., UZURI Ebony Drops Earrings, and more Junwave cute as heck hair.

Find the Boots at Kitties Lair.

Le Danse De Mardi Gras

In town the streets have been cleared from the Lundi Gras festivities that ran late into the wee morning hours. A new stage has been erected in the town square. Cans have been picked up by those who need a little extra cash to make ends meet. The day is fresh. The band strikes up melodies and sings in their dying language. People gather; they dance, they talk, they drink, walk the streets, and wait.

le danse_1
(Lilly Skin from Warholic Vampire Shop $1 - F - 13 Skins -; Outfut broceliande from Dany French touch peut etre $1 - M - outfit -; Balmoral Pumps from Truth $0 - F - shoes -

The young riders have not slept and the old will get up earlier than usual. The air has just a whisper of cold. The chill keeps those who have been awake up for the ride and work ahead. Today, chickens awake with fear in their little hearts all around Cajunland. They know the riders are coming. They are coming for the chickens, rice, flour, oil, onions, bell peppers, & green onions. Have their bounty and they'll stop their procession at your homestead and the band will play for you Le Danse De Mardi Gras.

(Newbie skin from Fleur $0 - F - Skin -; The special non-hunt Josephine Baker dress released as a $1 today only exclusive is from Lemania Indigo $1- F - dress -;

Floats, beads, cups, and dubloons are non-existent here. Wooden carts drawn by horse are for the band, retired riders, and women who watch. Things are as they were in the past. You ride, then you go to your section of town and make the gumbo for your section of town. Life is segregated here; still today.

le danse_3
(Clergy outfits can be obtained from Calleta's Hobo Railroad Docks $0 - m/f - clergy outfits -

If you venture into the cities the festivities are much different and probably more of what one who hears Mardi Gras thinks of. But, no matter where you awake you'll go to church and be marked by ashes. You'll bear your mark until sundown. And then begins a time of repentance and fasting and wait for the Easter vigil.

Zac Posen, Libertine, Katy Rodriguez, Julian Louie

For the first time in a while, I liked Zac Posen's collection. I really like the ballet-inspired flats and the sequins everywhere. Not really my taste, but overall, a nice showing.

I seriously don't get this collection. But I like it. And the Catholic schoolgirl in me (true story) loves the plaid skirts. I don't think I want to walk around with Queen Elizabeth on my skirt or coat, though.

I just realized that I don't really have much to say about this. Quite an interesting silhouette on that third dress, though.

Julian Louie is one of my new favorites. The plate armor-like construction of the pieces remind me of Balenciaga, but this collection strikes me as much more casual. A relatively drab palette, but it's saved by that rich brown and the flashes of teal. Nice!



There's not much to say about the person BEHIND THE SEAMS. I sat for a hour thinking of word perfect enough to describe this amazing blogspot. It's not that my mind went blank; believe i could have filled this whole page. But I only need these few words to explaine her style........... adictively alluring.....seductively at its purest.......enough said.
