some weeks ago I was invited from my special friend Whenina to join her in an exhibition/little market of handmade and d-i-y -ish productions.
I had very little time to prepare myself so I just took what I was working on lately that means basically different types of scarves and neck-scarves and my new accesory-obsession: sweater chains.
this is a picture I took of my little spot
it was a bit all grey atmosphere mh? it is unfortunately a reflection of my mood during this past period..I've definitely to do something to cheer it up!
I will post very soon better and more detailed pictures (these are pretty ugly!)
sweater chains with vintage buttons
let's skip to the part in wich I present you the latest entries in WhenaWorld. First of all I've been knowing her now for some years and I can tell how amazing she is in developing new handmade skills in such a short time! when we start something together I'm the one who need structure and theory at the beginning and in the meantime she skip the theory part and is already trying to do something practical.. and the good thing is that she generally manages to do a wondeful job!
starting from drawing and comics, she moved quickly in the handmade area giving birth to a great collection of charachters from her stories.
now she decided to give a try to crochet with unbelievable results
I've to admit that the most amazing thing I've discovered in her spot were the "Raccattati" (translated from dialect to italian and then to english it could be something like picked up), a collection of high personalities made by remnants of fabric she didn't know how to use. if the ecothinking/artistic state of mind wasn't enough she also had the idea of attached the arms and legs of the characters with buttons to the body so they'll be able to be exchaged one with the other;) finally she realized some spare parts (such as one pink furry tail!) to add, depending on the taste.

during my adventure here in pluriball I've often asked myself:why don't you post some of your outfits just like everyone else on the web? maybe someone could be interested in your style or in some of your accessories and you can exchange ideas and infos..
yes, it could be the case.
the thing is I'm not very good in modeling, most of the time I'm not satisfied of how things turn out when I make selfportraits so I'm always waiting for a pro-photographer to follow me in my routine and take millions of pictures about me and my personal life, but it doesn't seem it could be a real scenario anytime soon.
so I generally decide to take pictures of the things I like on my kitchen table or just on the floor. it just seem to be nicer.
Another solution is the one Gemma Correll presents in one of her gorgeous flickr sets: what I wore today in drawings.
I've discovered her talent in an exhibition in Antwerp this summer and she totally traped me in her sweet and sarcastic style.
durante la mia avventura qui su pluriball mi sono chiesta spesso: perchè non posti qualche immagine di quello che ti metti come tutti gli altri sul web? magari qualcuno potrebbe essere interessato al tuo stile o a uno dei tuoi accessori e magari potreste scambiarvi idee o informazioni..
si, potrebbe essere.
il fatto è che non sono molto brava a prestarmi come modella e la maggior parte delle volte non sono soddisfatta di come escono le cose in foto quando scatto degli autoritratti quindi mi ritrovo ad aspettare che un fotografo professionale si decida a seguirmi nella mia vita quotidiana scattando migliaia di foto mie e della mia vita personale ma non mi sembra che possa essere una realtà in un futuro prossimo.
quindi di solito scatto foto delle cose che mi piacciono sul tavolo della mia cucina o semplicemente sul pavimento. mi sembra semplicemente che escano meglio.
un'altra soluzione è quella presentata da Gemma Correll in uno dei suoi meravigliosi set di Flickr: what I wore today in drawings.
io l'ho scoperta all'interno di una mostra collettiva ad Anversa quest'estate e mi ha completamente intrappolato nel suo stile dolce e sarcastico.
I especially love day December 23(here) or any day that she draws her wonderful cat
or some lovely pug

I'm not good speaking about tragedies.. I only want to say that when I've first looked at this collection (and the second time, and the third, and..) I'd never thought it could be his last.
I've also loved his pieces from Milan some weeks ago..
some textures are impressive.
..well... this is it.

go on and say it
so yesterday I've attended my first catwalk ever. it was not the experience I've dreamed about so long but it was doubtless an experience.
I've learned something about the concept of sobriety.
thinking about a runaway show always made me imagine an elitè of damned elegant people, dresses of the latest collections, chic and charme everywhere. I've been slightly disappointed realizing the nowadays well-known fact that in Rome usually the things are different. even an hairdresser appointment the day before the show seem to be too much to ask around here. the worst thing I've seen around was this pair of gorgeous black heel -sorry I was not able to take a picture- wore with ugly grey and pretty old legwarmers that covered more of the half of the shoe. sometimes I think people can't really understand the difference between an "outfit" and a "bad outfit". not everything that reward you with a flash is a good picture in the end. I don't know if I'm making my point. what I do know is that I'd rather be listening to incomprehensible japanese conversations on the radio than been forced to look at that ugliness.
ieri ho partecipato alla mia prima sfilata di sempre. non è stata esattamente l'esperienza di cui avevo spesso fantasticato ma è stata indubbiamente un'esperienza.
ho imparato qualcosa sul concetto di sobrietà.
quando pensavo ad una sfilata ho sempre immaginato un elitè di persone incredibilmente eleganti, vestiti delle ultime collezioni, chic e charme in tutti gli angoli. sono rimasta leggermente delusa realizzando la ben nota realtà che a Roma spesso le cose sono diverse. persino prendere un appuntamento dal parrucchiere il giorno prima dello show sembra essere chiedere troppo. la peggiore cosa che ho visto sono stati un paio di scaldamuscoli vecchi e grigi che coprivano un paio di affascinanti tacchi alti. a volte mi sembra che le persone non riescano proprio a capire la differenza tra un "outfit" e un "brutto outfit". non è che tutto quello che ti fa meritare un flash è una buona foto alla fine. non so se mi sono riuscita a spiegare bene. quello che so è che preferisco passare la serata ad ascoltare incomprensibili conversazioni in giapponese alla radio che guardare certe bruttezze.

I'll post pictures of the three dresses I've liked as soon as I manage to extract them from a video I made.
