Update! Okay, here’s the shoe information! The shoes are by a New Zealand company called Minx. I bought them at a local shoe store called PedX. They seem to carry Minx at small, independently owned shoe boutiques, so get out your yellow pages and start calling! They are rather spendy (that’s a local term, by the way. I never hear anyone outside of Portland use that term), but they DO go on sale.
On superbuzzy we’re selling some curtain fabric with little sailboats on it. We thought it’d be fun to show some other applications for this fabric, and when Chicken Amy mentioned it’d make a cute skirt, I decided to have a go at it. Well, it didn’t come out exactly as planned; I think it was the design I selected, and I guess I just didn’t think it through thoroughly enough. But, since we’re all friends here, I figured I’d display the skirt anyway:
And now, what some of you have been waiting for–Peter’s comments (he should take over for Tim Gunn if Tim decides to retire, don’t you think?):
– “I don’t know if that would even qualify as cute. It’s so strange.”
– “Are you going to wear that around?”
– “I mean, sweetie, LOOK at it!”
– “As an apron I think it could work.”
