Thanks to Abel for the heads up on the fashion front.
I’ll give this show a perfect 10+.
Invisible heels, skipping, high stepping, hand holding and at last, choreography on the catwalk! All that plus dreamcatcher earrings. (look for em.) Bravo whoever!
Check the voice-over on the soundtrack. Sounds an awful lot like Sister Dimension’s soundtrack for a Thierry Mugler defile back in 199? “Influential” is what that’s called. “Influential, dahhhhhling!!!”
is no excuse for not posting for weeks and weeks but it happened. If you’d like to remind me to post something in the future or if you would like to request a topic or to ask me anything almost at all – hey – feel free…

Let your fingers do the walking and be assured – every email will be read by me or one of my staff. FYI – I like to discuss and blog about things that are; a little tired, really old, a future possibility, completely ridiculous, often underrated and of course those things that are invisible such as music, fragrance and spirits (not the kind that take a water back.) Also, I enjoy blogging about topics that involve the visible spectrum and everything that happens therein. I’m very sorry but I have to request that there be no inquiries regarding the subjects of the ultra-violet nor the infra-red at this time. Things beyond the spectrum will be permitted as topics of inquiry and or suggestions for posts sometime in the future, however at this moment I am unable to care about and therefore blog about colors that nobody can see. note: The topic of fluorescence is fine.
Ok, so, that said, what about Horst P. Horst and his summer beauty shot for Vogue? Have you seen it yet? Are you familiar with Horst P. Horst and Vogue 1939? No? Well you are now…
H. kept this one REAL simple – huh? Blast her with the brightest tungsten ya got and pay no mind to the beat up edge of that box. Inspiring.
This is your rehearsal track – Heaven 17 – Let Me Go 12″ Extended Mix – Learn it.
Assignment: Define through a series of half turns and paused poses, the
popular ’80s concept regarding “The Elegance of Ease.”
Tips: Express contentment and ultimate confidence with your most authentic half smile – no teeth.
Be luxury – as in a luxury ocean liner. Cruise. Keep an impossibly even keel. Float.
As you near the end of your imagined home runway, see how far to the side you can turn your eyes without turning your head…to the degree of appearing freakish for a hot second. Pose, then smirk and leave.
Peeling is permitted at the intermediate level but always remember to scrub off ALL jackets or coats. The accomplished S.A.H.M. will take this moment to show the lining.
Keep practicing. Don’t give up. Spring is a great time to stop eating, by the way.

”Men can wear skirts,” Mr. Holah commented. ”I sometimes walk around in a dress just to show the world that we don’t have to be what they say we must be. I like it when people have strong feelings about it.”
”Our clothes are really a form of questioning,” he said. ”The whole girl-boy thing in our clothes is about how I feel about girls and boys. When I was in school the boys and girls were not allowed to mix. And as a boy you weren’t allowed to have a girl as a friend. You were forced to have a girlfriend. Otherwise you weren’t normal. There’s always been a macho thing here. So we make clothes that show that the sexes can be mixed together even to the extent that we can borrow from each other. We’re experiencing ourselves.”
UPDATE: A date for our upcoming ABBA Week-long Web Event has been firmed up after nearly five unanswered telegrams from BBHQ to the Ledendary Scando Quartet. It is with great pleasure that we can now announce that this seminal (to some) WLWE ( Week Long Web Event ) will begin pretty soon.
ABBA – the original yabba zabba
ABBA – In the industry, the result of their inventive approach to the very sound of recorded music became a technique known simply as “Perfect Production.”
ABBA – Is it true they own Sweden? Find out during our WLWE!!!
