Winter Harlot

I have been busy!!! These photos were recently taken so I can put them up on my shop, still no "actual" sale as of yet but it's def great getting feedback from people at any rate. Some of these styles you have already seen, like the above Reversible  Lace Bolero Shrug but decided to snazz it up a bit. Other designs are entirely new here, stuff i just finished this week.

Like the above Victorian inspired lace top,I went a bit ballsy w that one and thought I might approach it with a "less modest" look. It will be a part of my new , much anticipated line of "leather and lace" ! 
And alas i have snagged someone else to model some of my designs!!! This is my saucesome friend Janet totally rockin my glam rock ribbed lurex dress. I am also going to work on this line in ode to the fab Bowie, T-Rex, Eno.., you know just glitter and glam radness!

Of course I will always have the softer Boho dresses, I cannot let go of my fascination with chiffons. I just love how wonderfully whimsical they can flow on the body. This is just a small preview , I should have by the end of the week, all these goodies up on my etsy shop.

Another Chiffon dress, long sleeve w yoke front. A full fledged dress on my model here but on me it's really a tunic.

 This was my Smocked dress I worked on last year in the summer and somehow forgot all about it. Yes. Chiffon dah-lins.
This is a button back little 50's retro top I made 2 days ago for myself. I might hold on to that one a little longer before putting up on the shop.

This one is a baby doll chiffon dress that I just adore! I used a belt because somehow I ended making this one bigger than my normal sizing.

Ah yeah...this is actually the top version of the dress my friend is modeling above! I loved this design so much I had to have a dress and top version.

So while I have more ideas and fabrics running through my head I am now getting more requests from friends, friend of friends for Menswear! Ahhhh...I don't know how I'm gonna fit all this in at the same time but I am sooo excited to take it ALL on! It's really amazing how a lot of these guys are really just as into their fashion as we are but how very little options they have. They don't obviously get all the variety we females get at the stores and even worse at the thrift stores  ! You can imagine how excited they get when they hear I am making trousers , tailors are scarce now a days so I think I might just concentrate and maybe take a few classes on tailoring to fully submerge on this much needed lost art. Yay! let's see what this brings on for the new year!!! Thank you all for the support and encouragement, it has been way too amazing these past 6 months! I have also been obsessively listening to Tim Buckley, so I wonder what designs will develop out of this...?!!!


  1. Wow! I can't wait to see what the future holds for you!

  2. I LOVE the lace top! You are so talented! xo

  3. Leora, we should barter our stuff! I Love, love, love your jewelry pieces!
