My friend Josh got me a glass eye as a gift, a few years back. It sat in a small jar as a curiosity on my book shelf, yet I always wanted to wear it on a necklace or a pin. My mother set the eye in a amulet (and put the amulet on a silver chain) while I was away in Montreal. The glass eye has always been one of my favorite objects and now I can have it close to me at all times.
I am off to Montreal tomorrow, to visit my dear friend Julie (pictured below) and Jif. I am super excited, I have never been to Montreal and don’t know what to expect. I will then be off to Toronto to visit my Sister and friends. I won’t be blogging for the next two weeks, so updates will be skim. I have also chosen to leave my lap top at home.
PS: Please suggest shops/food/sights/galleries…etc for me to check out in Montreal.
This collection holds importance in my design life, because it gave me that boost into XXL TOP/SKINNY LEGS look that is, well my look. It was Sleazenation(r.i.p) that introduced me to this collection. I remember being so enthralled by the over sized hoods and cardigans.
