Los Angeles -based Beat Up Creations just knows what the public wants- vintage china plates with Gizmo right in the center! This makes tea time such a treat with a bear-faced Marie Antoinette staring back at you through a scatter of scone crumbs! *Swoon*! My favorite has to be the Elizabethan ET or the cat in uniform. Hell! They’re ALL my favorite. Beat Up Creations also does zombie portraits, so make sure to check out their Etsy store. There were seriously too many to post, but they ALL are just lovely and kitschy! Aaaaaand , they are all upcycled. Brilliant work!

I swear that’s the same plastic covered lace I use as placemats. In any case, this collection by Jessica Madden is really awesome! I mean the ruffles, the lace, the shiny plastic! It’s like I’m in Elizabethan heaven! Madden has just graduated The University of Westminster and this was her senior fashion show. She is definitely one to watch as she has major talent. I can spot talent a mile away, by the way. Take for instance my other cat, Ms. Coco, who can bitch slap Mr. Marmar and still eat snacks simultaneously. That is unprecedented talent.

The talented Ms. Coco

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Yankee readers! Make sure you eat ’till you puke, zing your family all day and sleep yourself into a coma! That’s what today is all about!

See ! I got your attention with ‘Diamond’…, but alas, there are no diamonds. Sorry for the cheap lure. Anyway, Lake And Liberty designed these leather Elizabethan ruffs for your gymp in waiting. NO! They’re just Elizabethan ruffs done tastefully in leather. I always thought those ruffs resembled those cones that dogs wear after visiting the vet to prevent them from licking their butt. The dog always ends up with a tragic face when he realizes the ‘cone of shame’ is in the way of such tasty treasures. YUM! Anyway, these ruffs are pretty cool for a modern take on those old-timey collars. I was Queen Elizabeth one year for Halloween and I ended up making a ruff from a toddler’s tutu. No joke. It was a ghetto ruff if ever there was one. I’m gonna have to go through my archives for visual proof! These ruffs will class up a t-shirt or dress without looking costume-y. Actually, it probably will look like a costume, but nobody cares anyway…

As a fan of period pieces, especially of the Victorian age and Elizabethan age, British designer Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2009 collection was genius!  His collection featured  Elizabethan ruffs with a space age twist. The entire collection was mostly in white with dashes of black here and there. I am happy to see a designer take risks and design truly for the art and not just for whether you can wear it to the office. That being said , I would totally wear one of his dresses out on the town. Yes, I would look like a foolio who is not supposed to lick wounds and stitches, but who gives a fupe! I love it!
