Support Stacy Lomman on Kickstarter!

Fashion has been increasingly outsourced to outside countries, making costs for producing American-made clothing more expensive for smaller designers.  Stacy Lomman is using Kickstarter to fund her Spring 2012 collection, "Biohazard".  Help support the economy!  Clothing made in the United States are more expensive, but are often of better quality, and ensure that laborers have a higher standard of living that the US is so acclaimed for.  Pledgers of $20 or more on Kickstarter will also receive bonuses like bracelets, calenders, and even VIP seating at her show.

Hurry!  There are only 12 days left to fund her show, and she still needs $1865 to reach her goal, or else she doesn't get a single cent.  Pledge + More Info Here!

Interesting Links: Peculiar Beauty

Hello everyone!  I've been working on some personal projects for while, so I apologize for the silence on this end. 

However, I've found some interesting blogs to browse through, one of them being Peculiar Beauty, a blog written by Bonnie Downing on ancient beauty remedies and vintage tips on anything from fashion, to exercise and cookbooks.  It's an entertaining and informative read; I've spent hours on her blog just browsing through the archives!  Mostly, though, I'm just glad modern beauty products and treatments have evolved from lead powders and kohl.

If you have time, be sure to give Bonnie's blog a read!
