Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I want to send a big 'thank you' to my parents (pictured) who have always been a pillar of love and support in my life. And to any readers out there: wherever you may be and whomever you are celebrating this holiday with, may it be one full of love, gratitude, and turkey---or tofurky (whichever floats your boat). xo Litla
OK. So clearly from the picture above, the idea of wearing a pair of pants, attached to a bib, covered with multiple fastenings and a guaranteed prolonged process of getting undressed (or taking a pee), used to drive me crazy. In fact, my mother used to make me wear my brother's hand-me-downs, so every pair of overalls I had featured some kind of train, plane, or truck patched to the front. But perhaps these onesies and I got off on the wrong foot. Now I can't get enough of 'em! A whole outfit in one?! Who cares about the complications of trying not to let them touch the floor in a public restroom, I have so many pairs/variations at this point, it's kind of an addiction. Below are some of my favorites that are out and about right now.
(Left to right) black cropped jumpsuit Asos WHITE, denim bib overalls Pixie Market, Ilana Kohn 'Lola coverall' @ Bonadrag, and Shakuhachi denim wide leg overalls @ Free People.
I can't leave outwhere I found a great Creatures of Comfort dress on sale. Ilana Kohn, Horses Atelier and Rachel Comey are only some of the brands they carry, including a good selection of menswear.
Lastly, the famous shoe super store couldn't be missed. Located right across the street from Odessa, it was a convenient all-in-one shopping visit on a rainy Portland day.
Below are a few pics of my adventures just outside the big city. That's enough blabbing for now. Happy Autumn!
In September of 2011, I was fortunate enough to partake in the NES Artist Residency in the small fishing village of Skagastond, in Iceland. While looking over pictures from my 6 week stay there, it's difficult to find a way to put Iceland into words---I've never experienced such light, such landscape, and such a necessary sense of isolation in all my little rat life. If an abundance of licorice candies, sky views of the aurora borealis, and earthen houses aren't your thing, it might not be your kind of trip.
Enjoy some trip pics!
WELL HEEEELLLLLOOOOOOOO THERE!
Hello dear friends! How long has it been? Too long! I guess I didn't entirely keep true to my promise, declaring I'd "be back shortly", but it's been 4 years of many adventures and exciting new projects to fill you all in on! The clothing line is still one among many goals, but I've moved from east coast, to west coast, to back east again, making production a little difficult. But enough excuses, how are ALL OF YOU? You have been missed dear ones, and your support and well wishes haven't gone unnoticed. Thank you.
If you're craving some new/pre-loved/vintage pieces for Fall, I've launched two online stores that I'll be adding new items to bi-weekly. (click links below and/or sidebar). To shop new and pre-loved:
And for my vintage finds:
All sale proceeds will go towards launching some new textiles to sew into clothing for all of you! I've been working on some buttons too, and will keep you posted on my progress---I promise, within LESS than 4 years time.
A very humble 'hello again' to everyone!!
Wooed by Wu.
Hello my lovelies!!! I apologize for my long absence as I am trying to get a clothing line and online store up and running! I can't tell you how much all your warm comments and support have meant to me, and I promise to return to the blogging world shortly. In the meantime (as I'm sure most have you have checked it out already) I wanted to share my love for Jason Wu's Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear line. Wait for the embellished gold dress at the end----It's worth it!
Also, if you haven't made it to the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty show at the Met, I couldn't recommend anything more spectacular, awe inspiring and frankly, life changing....The design of the exhibit is, alone, unmatched and surely does McQueen's creations justice with it's Gothic caves, wallpapers, and overall exquisite architectural details. I couldn't help myself, and had to purchase the exhibition catalogue right away...
I'll be back shortly!
