Let The Olympics Uniform Games Begin!

Now that the Olympics is only a few days away, Time Magazine has put out their list of the best and worst uniforms. Some of them are huh?, the reason they are in the worst category and the others, let's just say, they spell fashionista from a far. However, the boys and girls in black, green and yellow are rocking it. They have me at hello! They were not voted #1 for nothing. With nearly 60% of the votes and designed by Cedella Marley, one of Bob Marley's daughter, the colors just catches anyone's attention. It is fashion to the max all the way. Hope they will make a splash!

The best are as follows: Jamaica, South Korea, New Zealand, Italy, Germany, United Kingdom.

Pick and chose your best here. My pick below:

#1 Jamaica

#2 New Zealand

#3 Germany

#4 South Korea

#5 USA


What Not 2 Do…

Work at night apparently! I just recently learned that I seem to be leaving hidden "footnotes" on every piece I make. There is always one mismatched bead here, another there, scattered mysteriously, appearing off key.

Case in point, the picture below. I had not realized the slip until after the picture was taken. It only tells me that I, perhaps, should stop working at night - hum I don't foresee that happening, need more light or new lenses, or I am daltonic - not!

Part of me is of the opinion that I should leave the piece as it is, to create its own charm. But my money is on me redoing the whole piece as my perfectionist self tells me that the alien bead, will soon evaporate, just like water!


In Search of Anything Made In The USA

It was one beautiful weekend and sales, sales, sales signs were plastered everywhere. So, what a girl to do other then go shopping.

I looked through both designer and non designer garments but as I was picking through each, it suddenly dawned on me that every piece of clothing I was touching, was “born somewhere else”, they were all “foreigner”.

 Made in Vietnam

 Made in China

 Made in India

 Made in Indonesia

I searched but could not find one piece made in… Hawaii or California or Alaska or Puerto Rico or Virgin Islands. They were all confectionated somewhere else. This is my quest to find that garment, any garment Made In The USA. Hopefully, it will be a easy search. Hopefully, I will find it tomorrow or before year’s end. I am going on a scavenger hunt for that one garment. And the search begins but if you find one, don't hesitate to post it!
