Designer Phuong Thuy Nguyen must use the crap out of his Singer knitting machine! I have done alot of posts on knitwear lately, but I think this one is my favorite. It’s like the really heavy acrylic (?) yarn that only a midwestern granny can master. I really do love the shapes and silhouettes Phuong has created. It’s like so futuristic, but so 70’s simultaneously. Speaking of knit and the 70’s, my mom had made this hideous macrame owl that used to sit on our doorstep with a pot of fern placed strategically in it’s mouth. It was brown and smelled like a basement. It kinda looked like this, but huge, like 6 feet tall. Don’t get me wrong, my mom had mad skillz for making sh*t like that, but Dang! it was downright FUG. Apparently, she sold it for a pretty penny to a midwestern lady. See, it all comes back to the midwest- only they can appreciate knit-anything! Check out Phuong’s ( that name makes me crave some delicious Pho) Site for more cool stuff!

These are Maison Martin Margiela 

shoes that should be not be $545. They look  more like $5.45. They missed the decimal point. Honestly, cork shoes are not very attractive in my book. I think of winos (like,  Amy Winehouse) and faux French bulletin boards found at TJ Maxx. Anyfugly, I wonder if these shoes fall apart if they dry out too much. That would suck. MMM also made the knee high boot for maximum fug. Click here to see it. I was searching for a matching cork dress , but all I found was this granny purse. Somehow, cork reminds me also of the 1970’s. Like macramé, fruits jiggling in Jello, and beards. Gross.
