I was wrong. So wrong.

Not that that's surprising, but it is fascinating to assess them side by side. Take, for example, the Moschino catwalk picture shown aboveContinue Reading

Last century's country consisted of a lot of pine shelves, wooden figurines on said shelves, hearts (also pine), doilies draped over said shelves, and--hand to god--huge formed fabric bows that people would hang over doorways and arches.
