I hope all of ya’ll had a wonderful Christmas/holiday/time-off-from-work-without-celebrating-anything/etc. Sorry I kind of vanished from social-networking and blogging land for a while–I was busy doing crucial holiday stuff like hangin’ with my family, sleeping for an eternity, and eating profuse amounts of low fat, sugar free, flour free pumpkin pie (no doubt the most appetizing thing you’ve ever heard of, I know).
Christmas is the big holiday for my family, and everyone was too busy running around to take pictures of the action. No pictures my grandmother dancing to Gangnam Style two times, my reenactment of the knife fight from Michael Jackson’s “Beat It,” or pictures of my cousin’s epic outfit that reminded me of Rihanna gone goth.

Happy December, friends. I’m knee deep in Christmas gifting/shopping, but not in that reluctant, obligatory way that it can often morph into. I’m making a lot of gifts this year–someone asked for a handmade doll, I’m making someone else a customized pair of gloves, and I recently lured one of my friends into the addictive world of Monster High dolls, and I’m making tiny necklaces for all six of her dolls (ah, lovely ridiculousness).
Speaking of making things, you may have noticed that there’s now an “Online Shop” page on the blog. If you hadn’t already seen the posts on my Twitter and Facebook, well you now know that my shop is up and running! From now until Christmas, I’ll be adding new items every Monday. Here’s a look at some of the items up for grabs:
The necklace is finally for sale, though not the boy (sorry). (more…)
While I’ll likely be getting some rather practical things for Christmas (oh my gosh, I am in desperate need of a camera) I of course have my dream list. If one of these gifts magically appear on Christmas, I may be tempted to start believing in Santa…

If you saw my coverage of Philly Fashion Week, then you no doubt saw me raving about the designer, Autumnlin. I was instantly drawn to her complex pieces that combined both sophistication and deconstruction. I thought to myself, this lady is North America’s answer to h. Naoto (little did I know she’d list him as one of the fellow designers she admires). I recently spoke to Autumnlin, about her style, vision, and studying abroad–besides studying in Philly and NY, she spent time in Florence and Paris–and got to take a closer look at more of her inspiring creations…
Shortly after the runway show began I had two thoughts. One: I hoped to get some good shots of Autumnlin’s collection. Two: I wanted to know who those black clad people in the front row with the colored hair were, and I hoped to run into them so I could take their picture.
