Handmade High Fashion: Designers to watch

It's really astonishing, the levels of craftmanship and ingenuity you're only too lucky to encounter within the handmade/diy arena.

Elizaveta Yankelovich on etsy uses all sorts of ephemera you'd overlook in a thrift shop- from plastic stained glass ornaments torecords and even condoms and rolling papers (though you probably wouldn't find these in a thrift shop!) to make one-of-a-kind art you can wear.

Kick- ass in the "What? You're weird cause you're not wearing an oversized fruit!" kind of way. The American Apparel-esque models probably add to the appeal.

I was always a huge fan of Armour Sans Anguish, but this year the duo (Tawny Holt and Julie Edwards) really seem to be outdoing themselves. Take a look at this adorable dress, currently being sold off of BTC Elements, a boutique specializing in eco-friendly clothing. (All AMA clothes are made from reclaimed materials).

This dress captures the essence of AMA- whimsical, vintage-inspired, and not afraid to experiment with layers, types of fabric and texture.

They were recently hired to create bridesmaids' dresses for a wedding- be sure to look for pics soon on their blog. Also check out their tops made from reworked felted sweaters.

Seed clothing
, run by Amy Blea, is a company that tries to "get back to the art of sewing and creating and designing well-made fashionable garments". All garments are handmade and in limited editions.
I swear, the Doris dress inspired by Twiggy or Edie Sedgwick would make the coolest prom dress, period. Check Amy's etsy account for other designs.

Hope you enjoy, or at least find some form of motivation,

With the onset of age the hair becomes grey, but do not pull these grey hair out. Every time you pull out a grey hair, you sow the seed for another few because the root at the base of the hair follicle secretes an infectious serum, which covers a tiny pinpoint of healthy hair surrounding the white hair and these in turn will go white within next to no time. If you feel you must get rid of your grey hair then cut it close to the root with scissors.
