Will fashion ever be cruelty free?

Sometimes Fashion can be a harsh mistress, or an insane drama queen. I live where it is cold. I won't deny that I have a lot of wool in my closet and some leather, but I've always bought it second hand. Does wearing an old animal compare to wearing a freshly slaughtered one? I don't really know anymore. What I do know is I feel nauseous looking at models swathed in copious amounts of fur. It is extravagantly cruel. Personally I think if people are going to create fur garments they should use the bodies of euthanzied cats and dogs from shelters. It would make people uncomfortable, but then they might not be so disconnected from what they are wearing. People are almost as disillusioned about their clothes as they are about their food, and it's sad.

I'm in the mood for love

Simply because you're near me.
Quick and impulsive, like me.

Advanced Doodling

I just want to take a moment to tell the world how colourful and inspiring Advanced Style is. Here is some wise advice from sassy + classy ladies that all artists should listen to. I have been keeping a journal for a long time that I write and doodle in. I was so happy when I saw Ari Seth Cohen's doodles. It made me want to share my own.
"Do you fear being a creative person?"

"doodling releases nervous energy"

"A lampshade is a hat"

Oh look! Here comes a hippy,

a flapper

a happy bearded man,

and a cross-dressing flapper.
They take their fashion cues from Advanced Style.


Sexuality, distortion and immaturity

Wacky Shoe Cards

I was at the Discount Emporium today and I bought these cards for a dollar each. What occasion has to come into a person's life for someone to send them a card with a shoe on it? Congratulations for buying new shoes? Okay, well if anyone reading this bought some shoes and wants a card e-mail me at and send me your address because I really don't know what do with these now that I have the images.

I find these little illustrations enchanting. Obviously these illustrators should be working for cobblers and producing the latest runway shoes. Who can resist humour based fashion aimed towards morbid older women?

I wish toddler tv people dressed more like this

More Louise Gray madness. We should be killing muppets and wearing them , not animals.
