Wow! Check out this house, featured in The New York Times Magazine, for March 21st. It was built by a couple who found an unlikely spot (an old sandstone quarry in Festus, Missouri) and moved in, accessorized it, and made it their own. Next time I’m in the market for a cave I’ll be sure to check eBay!!
I wonder what the building inspector had to say, let alone Planning and Zoning.
I’m going to do something similar this week with the cover of the magazine: move into it and customize it to my liking….
“We have a surprise for you today.”
“Uh-oh is right. We’ve decided to have you make a second outfit from the same cover this week, with no extra time or budget.”
“Whoa indeed, AND we’d like you to pick one page from inside the magazine to make a third look as well. Two of the outfits will be for your model and one of the cover looks will be for you.”
“Wow, I’d better work fast, I don’t have much time!”
“Ok Designer, but work thoughtfully, you only have one chance at this. Ok?”
“Ok… work, work, work. I’ll see you on the runway.”
“What’s the story with those sort of sneakers?”
“Those are newfangled, modernist, bunny high-tops.”
“Very cool. These looks are fabulous. You seem to have a way with menswear and the accessories are to die for!!”
“Thanks, I feel good about the looks I’ve created today.”
“Well you should, Designer. You should be very proud of yourself. Well done. In fact, you are the WINNER today! You’re IN. You can leave the runway.”
