and while the Pope owns 51% of General Motors



My gift to you on this autumnal Monday morning: a juxtaposition of a different kind. Sound and image that seem, at first, in contrast (catwalk shots, George Harrison) but.. well, what can I say. Click below, turn up the volume, even if you're in the office, and let me know if it works.



Let's just say: I've been up to here with the dark side of the fashion blogging world, and it's time for me to go into the light. And both this show, and this song.. I'm all about the spiritual for me, these days.



I have not been able to get this song out of my head for over a week, ever since I saw Scorcese's BRILLIANT film. I love how, in the film, he described writing this song: he was friggin' BRUSHING HIS TEETH and humming the melody, and thinking 'you don't need no bedpan, you don't need no blah blah'.. and I keep picturing my first, and favourite show, Corrie Neilsen's, this September. And I'm sorry I'm not linking her, or telling you more about her - she's amazing - but I'll be showing you more photos, I promise, and I can tell you about her then.

In the meantime, check out these lyrics.










I've been invited to something today that I'm really excited about: and it has nothing to do with selling stuff. This time of year especially, I am turning my focus to what really matters.

Have a nice day, dear friends. And Hari Krishna!

I loved this show!!!! It was my first one for LFW Sept 2011 and it was magical. The lights as you walked in made it feel slightly surreal :)

The scultping and the draping were impeccable and it was the benchmark for the rest of my LFW experience.

Great pics - again!! :)

I didn't turn it on, or up!! My boss is sitting a few feet away and I'm trying to avoid a meeting!! Haha! Didn't want to draw attention to the fact I'm still here! ;)

YES, Jill- time to come into the light again.
Speaking of light - your photos...they always have a glow or energy that is very warm and inviting. An extension of the photographer, perhaps. :)
I apologize for being a slacker with replying...Am tied up with work and errands...I WILL reply asap.
Happy Monday! xo
