35 In Misc


I wanted to post this picture of me wearing the beetle belt with jeans so everyone could get an idea of the size in relation to a person wearing it.  I wore this outfit to a shoe event at Barney's with Simon Doonan.

Very old Donna Karan blazer, Giuseppe Zanotti  shoes, Currrent Elliot jeans.

They held a drawing at the shoe event, and yours truly one a free pair of Manolo's!!!  Here is a pic snapped by the Bag snob 

Update on our retail site–We are currently trying to get our domain out of the jaws of NameSecure and over to Network Solutions—this is apparently much more difficult than it sounds–we are hoping for resolution soon.  We have all of the photos ready to upload just as soon as we can get onto our site—I apologize for this–we are so frustrated!!

    I understand about the domain, its quite a hassle. The beetle looks absolutely stunning and the fact that you and your sister developed the mold for that just makes it even more special. The details are intricate and organic. I’m sure we will see some spectacular molds of fish belts? Hope so.

    That belt is just fabulous, so modern, industrial and now!
    I always like it when you style your own pieces! Your mix of the new and vintage always seems so easy and relevant.

    That is a gorgeous belt, congratulations! I like what you paired it with here, it really stands out against the simple tailoring. Oh, and congratulations on winning some Manolos! That must be exciting, and I am rather jealous.. Hehe.
    Did you ever see the post I did about you on my blog?

    There’s nothing like winning shoes, pretty much an Oscar to me ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats!
    I hope your website will be online soon.

    The belt is just divine! Looks fab w/ simple black and varying textural elements.
    I love your C/E jeans…I have a bit of a fixation w/ that label (just the jeans, though). The fit and cuts are just awesome.
    Congrats on the win- I never win anything either! Manolos are so comfortable relative to the heel height.

    Hi Judy,
    I am trying to send you an e-mail to the e-mail address provided on your homepage, but it doesnt seem to be going through… Just wondering if you could let me know if there’s something wrong :S

    Oh my god, hideous!
    p.s. Network Solutions are the absolute WORST. It should be a snap to transfer your domain. Someone is giving you some bad advice. Get my teenager (i.e. webmaster)to help you.
