Dream Weaver 1

I’ve just closed my eyes again
And climbed aboard the dream weaver train
Trying to take away my worries of today
And leave tomorrow behind

Ooh dream weaver
I believe you can get me through the night
Ooh dream weaver
I believe we can reach the morning light

H is for — Hat

H is for Hat

Specifically, this nice old leather hat from LeLutka.  One good thing about Vanessa Blaylock’s challenge is that it’s making me dig through stuff I haven’t opened up for several years.  I have to take my hair into account, but the hat still works quite nicely!

Gidge Uriza as Dolly Levi

Regular readers will know of my close friendship with Cajsa Lilliehook and Gidge Uriza, the co-authors of the SL fashion blog It’s Only Fashion.  I check their articles frequently for information on interesting new clothes and designers, and it’s often wonderful what I find.

A few days ago, Cajsa and Gidge came up with the concept of “Queen of Hearts.”  They did two pieces on it; in the first, Gidge is playing an Aztec “queen of hearts,” and Cajsa is on the sacrificial stone.  But the second is a bit more traditional, with Gidge playing in a modern take on Dolly Levi, the matchmaker and eponymous character of Hello Dolly! A small taste from this:

A Sample from Paper Couture Spring 2008 Collection

Aleida at the Ewing Fashion Agency blog has sampled the spring 2008 catalogue from Paper Couture, and written about it here:

The two ensembles she illustrates are definitely to die for — especially that picture hat! It’s a pity I don’t go anyplace where such a hat would be in good taste to wear; but it’s still tempting to go get it.
