Sunday Best v.12

This week, I'm in mourning after the suicide of Alexander McQueen, one of my favorite designers. He designed the dress above, in 2008, and it is one of my all-time favorite designs ever.

When I was a little girl, I used to watch Fashion TV, hosted by Tim Blanks, every weekend on Vh1. Alexander McQueen was just getting his start then, and I loved his theatricality and dedication to bending the rules as far as they could go. Read a lovely tribute by Tim Blanks here.

On a happier note, I love this little girl, working hard on her valentines. LIFE picture from January 1942.

That spoof made my weekend. And I want the last chick's hair.

Thanks for the cookie shout out. :)

Oh, and the Kate Spade e-Valentine's broke my heart. Adorable.
