sew do you

I found someone amazing: ...verypurpleperson! I am a purple person making stuff myself and we share the Indo connection: she's an Indonesian living in Tokyo who "just can't stop making stuffs". Came across her on where a batik dress of hers was featured. Very inspiring, desipte my personal taste being less cutesy. The styling with the bright tights brings out the blue in the fabric and the minty contrast colour shows attention to detail on the second dress. The other printed fabrics she uses, allover tonal cats for example are amazing and Japanese of course. Very personal style, sleek and tastefully presented. She has a shop and blog.

Melissa's plastic dreams

A link to share...

where I also discovered that the supercool rubber shoes that I adore by Melissa work with a zero waste policy, recycling all their waste from production! I own a pair of Melissa ballerinas myself; they smell of hubba bubba.
