"about a girl"

Leigh 2009

Etsy

This piece was inspired by Balenciaga's 2009 resort collection which I love.


And this just made me laugh!!

“Last night I worked, unpaid, for six hours so that a fashion designer could continue dressing socialites and selling out her sunglass and perfume licenses and decorating her SoHo apartment with Picassos. I did it notionally for pictures on Style.com ("Think of your pictures on Style.com!" a minder hissed whenever we models began to look slightly wilted in the third hour of standing, immobile, in shoes invariably two sizes too small or two too big.) But actually, if you want to be technical, I did it for two slices of melon and a lipstick and a dress".

ooh, I love this! I like your version of the model's face better ;)

*I giggled when I read your comment about waiting a week before losing it on someone ...probably smart ...but sometimes it is fun to freak out on someone ..even if you regret it later...lol.
