Stockings on Flickr.
I thought I’d be useful for once and list everything she’s wearing in case anyone had an interest seeing as she’s a finicky size: http://jointedlove.blogspot.com/2014/02/stockings.html
Ooh, you photograph her so beautifully - she looks gorgeous!!!
To anyone interested: I’m the one that made the corset and stockings, if anyone wants any Chicline (or Mini, or Tiny) stuff! New things going up in my shop right now!
E-reading isn’t REAL reading. = I need my personal preferences about my hobby to be validated as the only right and moral way do to a thing.
Making crafts out of old books is a DESECRATION! = I’ve never seen a library dumpster.
I only read prize-winners/confirmed classics *sniff*. = I don’t know how to think for myself.
Book bloggers are killing literary criticism! = I’m an aging white man in publishing and I don’t know how to think for myself.
Oh, I’ve never heard of that book. Was it reviewed in the NYT/on NPR? = I don’t know how to think for myself.
I would never read the tripe that is Twilight/50 Shades/Oprah’s Book Club selection, and I am going to tweet that statement 50 million times. = I am still as worried about being cool as I was when I was in high school.
The book is always better than the movie, no exceptions. = I’ve never seen The Godfather or The Princess Bride and also I am no fun at parties.
Rap music is not poetry, but Joni Mitchell/Bob Dylan/Belle and Sebastian is. = I am racist.
I refuse to use an e-reader because I just love that old book smell. People who do not love that old book smell are not real readers. = My favorite perfume’s base note is mold.
People who shop at Amazon for books are evil. = I have disposable income and like to make moral judgements about people who do not.
I would NEVER dog ear pages, crease a spine, or eat food while reading. = I have unreasonable expectations about how much the people to whom I bequeath my books when I die will actually want them.
I guess it’s good that they’re reading at all. = I will internally judge you until your reading tastes morph to match my own, which are far superior to yours because I read more books written by white men who live in Brooklyn.
I don’t have a TV because that would cut into my reading time. Did I mention I don’t have a TV? Hey. You there. I don’t have a TV. I don’t get that TV reference. = I am not all that interesting. Also, I watch three hours of Netflix a night on my laptop.
I don’t care if the main character is likable. It’s the PROSE that’s the thing. = My ability to tolerate insufferable jerks makes me better than you because you’re obviously only reading for escapism, which is an inferior motivation for reading.
I’m not a romance/crime/Western reader. I mean, I’ll read LITERARY genre. SOMETIMES. = My kitchen is full of quinoa and kale and soy ice cream. Someone please validate what a grown-up I am.
I don’t understand adults who read YA. You’re a grown-up person, you should read grown-up books. = I don’t like dancing in the rain or ice cream cones or trampolines or whimsy and my neck tie is too tight.
In case you haven’t heard, BookRiot is the fucking ish.

I don’t even like to wear yellow… but for this I’d make an exception. Too bad colourwork and I don’t agree with each other.
while i love where it has joker repeating on the upper area i feel there was a lost opportunity to make the JX section say “na na na(etc)” and maybe “batman” in the same line on each arm

High Society Art Dolls by Alexandra Koukinova
Exquisitely detailed brocade patterning and rich costume fabrics are joined together in these elegant art dolls by Russian artisan Alexandra Koukinova.
These ladies have been attired in striking early art deco fashion style, something you’ll hardly expect to encounter these days! The look gives me a strong nostalgic feeling, similar to the kind you get when you see old black and white films with flickering noise and a staccato framerate.
Alas, the male fashion of that period appears to be of the more mundane suit and optional hat variety, which leaves the exhibition here exclusive to the fairer sex. One final note – the source for the specimens featured here is not readily apparent, but you can find their section tucked away in the Museum section
imagine if your fridge did what you do to it everyday, every half hour goes to your room opens the door and stares at you for 5 minutes then leaves
