The flowers remind me of Frieda’s infamous hairdo that she defiantly wore to to represent the traditions of her people.

The Day of the dead is a traditional Mexican holiday to remember and celebrate our ancestors.

Tomorrow is the last day to see the Jean Paul Gaultier show at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Below is a dress that must have been crazy to sew.  The stripes are lined up on the diagonal, but the seams are going in the opposite direction also on a diagonal.  Tartan is not a fabric I would ever design with, but I admire people who do and do it well.  We have a new designer in the store called OcuniD (phonetically Aucune Idee) who has made his whole Fall collection of party dresses in tartan.  They are great.  I got one.

And this is the but of one of Jean Paul Gaultier’s muscle leotards.  He designed the fabric and you can see the top of thigh high boots that go with the outfit.  What cracks me up is the anatomical heart he placed on the right butt cheek.

I love JPG!
