Corset dress with a hand sewn lace appliqué
Beautiful red twill fabric, inside linen in a black coutil as a strong layer. What makes this this dress special are invisible double boning channels and a deep U plunge at the front, 22 bones in total ( 16 spiral steel bones and 6 flat steel bones).
What is the best performance of the decade?
when kai fagerström happened upon an old cottage in rural suomusjärvi, finland, abandoned decades ago, he began to document its new residents.
there were badger cubs born under the floorboards, who now used the fireplace as an entrance. there was a raccoon dog pup who would drop in every night at the same time. there was a pygmy owl who would try to catch the home’s voles. there were red squirrels who had built their dreys inside the house. and there was a fox pup, seen peeking out from a cat door, that had taken up in the dilapidated shed.
"there’s consolation in the idea that nature is reclaiming the places it has lent to people," he says, adding that when enters the house “it’s like stepping back in time. the past lingers in the corners.” it’s not just the animals that interest him, but the people no longer there. “who were they? what was their daily life like?”
to get his shots of these human weary animals, fagerström typically envisions an image first and then plans it out. he’ll set his camera at the perfect angle, throw out peanuts as bait, and wait patiently for wildlife to wander into the picture frame. “sometimes you get lucky, but often it takes all night,” he says. “every so often a shot is pure happenstance.”

That awkward moment when you spend so much time with a pet, you start to dress alike.
I’d forgotten I knew how to do this!

On our way to the Cambridge Folk Festival. Says here we’re in the (dirty) Den at 7.50pm. See you there, squire. (Taken with Instagram at Dartford Tunnel)
And they were beyond fabulous. Favourite festival find of 2012.
Four of us watched them play and four of us owned albums within hours.
Oh, how lovely.
