Oscars-shmoscars. I'm famous for real now. As we speak, I am being GOMI-ed. Yes, yes, it was a bit of a shock at first, but hey...I hear that's the price of fame. Being misunderstood, bad press, mean girls, yadda, yadda, yadda.
|~ cuz you know girls, I can take it ~|
Everything I have on, is hand-made by moi, hand-sewn even. Except the scarf was thrifted ($1) and the button gifted (priceless).

The fabric is called Golden Pear Embossed Stretch Velvet, oolala, and it's made into Paul Poiret's Cocoon Coat designed in the early 19-teens from Folkwear patterns. The purple hat and over-the-elbow fingerless gloves are made ala Albama Chanin out of a T-shirt. Green suede booties are Irregular Choice from ebay. And $ Store reading glasses.
Off to Patti's Not Dead Yet Style to hang out with the Visibles, yeah. And Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like. And Cherie's Style Nudge, Shoe and Tell. See you there!
* I'm GOMI-ed under the forum thread of the art of repurpose (?) btw. Have any of you been inducted into that club?
Oh, and here's an extra credit photo...
