While surfing the Met website, I ran across a special online exhibition. Some selected works of Poiret: King of Fashion can be found here for our enjoyment.  Poiret was a fashion visionary in the late 19th century known for innovations in the construction of garments and for liberating women form their corsets. However much I love our free moving Project Alabama corsets, I am forever thankful that Poiret helped to eliminate the victorian, air restricting variety.

Peculiar Pet

While reading through a blog that I subscribe to,, I was introduced to some fascinating photography. The images, taken by Pieter Hugo, are powerful and inspiring. The work is a collection of portraits taken of Nigerians with their peculiar pets. Who new hyenas were so beautiful? Visit Pieter Hugo's Site
