No more twist.



Today a woman with the evocative name of Plurabelle Laszlo (of Bliensen + MaiTai) asked me politely if I'd like to look at some of her wares. I did -- and found that they were vastly creative and humorous twists on jewelry, the bottle cap choker especially. I also love armbands with stuff on them about as much as I love belts with stuff on them, and this one is designed for the budding tailor in us all.

Speaking of tailors, is anyone else haunted by the Beatrice Potter story A Tailor of Gloucester? Those mice. You know.

"Three little mice sat down to spin,
Pussy passed by and she peeped in.
What are you at, my fine little men?
Making coats for gentlemen.
Shall I come in and cut off yours threads?
Oh, no, Miss Pussy, you'd bite off our heads!"

I often wish for skillful mice for all my hard-working designer friends. Take breaks, you guys! Or the universe will strike down upon thee with carpal tunnel! This scatter-brained post is obviously brought to you by a hot summer day of no school for my child.
