WHERE TO BUY ARETHA FRANKLIN'S HAT! GIANT BOW HAT WORN AT INAUGURAL. PURPLE GOTH GIRL TOP, RED TIGHTS, CUTE SCOTTISH FOLD CAT IN BATHTUB.
Here’s part two of my bathtub photoshoot! I’m wearing Possessed, a comfy purple V-neck sent to me from Akumu Ink. The Goth girl print comes in both girls and guys sizes (XXS to XL) and is available on the web store. Are you excited yet for our fashion collaboration???
Onto the hat — yes, that glorious bowed monstrosity sitting atop my head. I found it on sale at Timeless on Melrose, previously mentioned as one of my favorite LA shops. Had. To. Have. It wasn’t until later that I realized it was the splitting image of Aretha Franklin’s infamous hat, which she wore to the Obama inaugural! Poor earless Basil Farrow looks like he’s horrified by what I’m wearing.

Need a creativity boost? My tip: visit a library! Today, I borrowed a stack of Korean and Indian cookbooks, Miyazaki DVDs, Murakami novels and more to tide me over the Yuletide. I also had fun flipping through design magazines that I wouldn’t usually read. Whenever I find something inspiring, I make a note in my text messages and save it as Draft, or snap a photo using my cell phone. The books are free — so why not pick up something you wouldn’t usually buy?
On that note, a big thank you to everyone who ordered my books for your local libraries. If you’re still doing your holiday shopping or putting items on your wishlist, please consider my new releases, Crazy Wacky Theme Restaurants and Cute Yummy Time. It’s been wonderful hearing from all of you who have enjoyed the books!
