Fingering Fabric

Let me introduce you to the vest I've been living in for the past fortnight, exploiting any opportunity to wear it if I can even though I don't tend to wear the same item of clothing within a one week period. This Michelle Lowe Holder vest came to me in a pretty long winded way as it was sent to my home HOME address, where the mothership and dear papa lives.  They dangled it like fish bait to get me to come home.  That and a hot pot of wood ear mushroom, black cloud fungus and chicken. 

Of course, it isn't just the arduous Northern Line journey to get it that is the sole reason why I'm currently enamoured with it.  The sandwich of netting swatch complete with pinking shear edges has been heavily abused by my fabric petting habit.  Beastiality is just so passé…it's all about fabric fingering…

Then I further discovered a practical aspect of the design that surprisingly impresses me.  The swatch is removable with button holes and can be moved to the shoulders of the vest and thus makes the vest machine washable.  The fact that tidbits like this makes me relieved shows I'm a) showing my age and b) at risk of being hit by huge bills from home shopping channels.

I'm now thinking button holes and removable fabric swatches, embellishments etc could set about a DIY joyfest that wouldn't be the hardest thing in the world… (I promise I will stop PONDERING DIY tasks and actually get some graft done… )

Meanwhile, I spy more fabric fingering opportunities in Jasmin Shokrian's A/W 09 collection where layers of wafer thin chiffon/tulle make up this pale blue fluff of a top…

  1. Yep the washing scenario factor is rather telling… but in a good way!
    I love the vest and the removable fabric sheer genius and quel shame Jasmin’s items are US and Italy only. I loved the lilac dress and the black skirt.

  2. Your vest is SO cute, love the fact that the fabric swatch is removable! Simple yet ingenious!
    The Jasmin Shokrian pictures/tops made me gasp….absolutely BREATHTAKING! 🙂

  3. Actresses are just one example from which women could learn how to be sexy, what items of clothing to choose, in order to get out of the routine in which their love life is found.
