Yohji


This is the Yamamato-esque piece I mentioned in my last post. I call it a piece because I still cannot figure out exactly what it is! Some kind of skirt pant harness hybrid. In any event, very bizarre and very cool, I think.

At first glance, it looked like a skirt! But I pulled it off the rack and realized immediately that it was... something else entirely.

I guess they are pants, but the legs are so obscenely wide and draped that it looks like a skirt. Also, they are not quite legs because the fabric doesn't wrap around all the way - meaning, this is a very dangerous garment to wear on a windy day!

In any event, they are made of the most gorgeous black wool, and have pockets! Two very good qualities in my book.

I could wear the pants with a zillion things, but I wanted to follow through on my inspiration, hence the all black. But once the weather starts to get actually cold, these might be making more appearances!

Vintage weird wool trouser things, vintage Calvin Klein bodysuit, incredibly old Ann Taylor oxfords, vintage blazer

I took these photos yesterday, and the weather was so crisp and autumnal and lovely that I couldn't resist snapping some pictures of my backyard. This was the only one I really liked. So... meet my shed! I think we keep gardening tools and moldy lawn furniture in there, but I feel like it has so much potential!
If I can repair my tripod (or hopefully purchase a new one soon) then I will definitely take more pictures by the shed. It would provide such a creepy-yet-couture backdrop, non? Especially at this time of year.

My friend Chris created this word cloud courtesy of Wordle, using my blog page as the source text! The words most used on the page show up the largest. Isn't that so funky? Try it with your blog and see what words you write the most.

I really like those skirt/pants and the jumping photo (it took me a second for figure out where your legs went...) and that tag-cloud thing is so cool! I tried it out on my blog and it's getting kind of addictive.

indigotangerine said...

So cool! They almost seem... intellectual? Love the crazy pleating, and the fact that they are wool makes it so much better. And you've totally gotten me addicted to Wordle!

One of my faaavourite things is pieces of clothing that are a bit amorphous and don't have a definite category. Absolutely stunning, I'm so jealous!
