This is a cannibal’s nightmare! Seriously, you think you’re gonna eat Grace Jones and all you get is chocolate! But, on the other hand, it’s a chocolate lover’s dream and if you’re a Grace Jones fan and a chocolate lover- well, it may feel weird eating her head. So, this was for her album cover for ‘Hurricane’. I thought Grace Jones disappeared into suburbia, but she has actually been around- we just never paid attention. I loved her in ‘A View to A Kill’! She was a Bond girl not to tangle with, but Bond didn’t give an eff! Classic film with, of course, the great Duran Duran doing the theme song. Here are her outrageous costumes from her recent shows. I wonder what happened to all the chocolate? I hope it didn’t end up at TJ Maxx in the gourmet gifts section.

PS- I see Chocolate feet one photo- NOOOOOOOO!

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.

I love , love, love vintage clothing. I love, love, love Ebay. It’s a ‘danger zone’ for me along with TJ Maxx, Neiman Marcus and Cinnabons. But if I were to step into the Danger Zone, I would happily do it with VioletVille on Ebay. They specialize in vintage dresses from the 1930’s, 40s and 50s. I think clothes from those eras fit me better than today. Today , I can be a size 6 or a size 0 depending on what brand I’m wearing. I find that vintage clothes were made  more for the petite woman and I fall helplessly into that category. According to my husband , I’m a shrimp. I don’t mind…. because I wouldn’t be able to wear vintage if I wasn’t a shrimp. Speaking of shrimp, I adore those cocktail dresses from the 1950s, especially the black ones with the pearls and bows. Back to VioletVille, check out their latest auctions and get carried away into an era of deviled eggs, cocktail dresses, and kitten heels.
