Golly...I stumbled across this hot shopping venue,
Karmaloop.com. I love and adore lots of their goodies, and I LOVE this bag...but I certainly covet the second one with one of our icons of femininity: Snow White.

At this moment in time, I'm still having an identity crisis
as to what Princess I'd like to be.... Cinderella, so humble and witty, Sleeping Beauty, so earthy and thrifty.... Arial, cute and out-doors-y...Belle, handsome and creative.... Snow White, pure and innocent.... It's the same old
Ginger vs. Mary Ann dilemna. (he-he)

These things you ponder while raising your young... and as you realize that you are continuing the perpetual cycle of indoctrinating your daughters to our cultural stereotypes via Disney.

Anyway, the SnowWhite bag is in my shopping cart,
I have to finish this post to grab my credit card and BUY
my chosen icon (of the day).

Custom Chuck Taylor Sneakers

Three months and where have I been! Started small a few months back tinkering around with creating a new t-shirt shop through Spreadshirt. This is a great venue. I love my store, I love spreadshirt. Now, I'm slowly recovering with my latest obsession, but still so, so busy...

You see, I adore, covet and collect vintage clothing, and I also tend to "save my finds, (that I don't sell in The Absinthe Room on ebay) and never wear them...saving them for a special time..." So that leaves me every morning wondering what to wear. I need to have some kind of uniform every day, with some sort of individuality and creative edge that wearing vintage fashion gives the wearer.

Hmm....I come across so many amazing novelty prints, vintage fabrics...I'm always inspired by urban icons and images that I see every day...maybe I'll somehow put them on a shirt..." Voila, I found Spreadshirt. So now I've created Nouveau-Tees, and now I have my unique uniform at my disposale every day.

Of course, along with that uniform are my collection of chuck taylors. and now, the shop has the classic black chuck-style sneakers. I had to design something to pop on a pair, so I created a little version of my cherished icon the Lotus. Fun stuff. So this is where I've been. I hope to most more regulary, but, you never know.... Pimp your sneaks with Nouveau-Tees !
