roll your own

I love it when the Brits use the word 'bespoke' not sure why, it just sounds cool. so now we have the latest attempt at letting the masses design their own clothes. go check out Styleshake, choose a fabric, design a dress and it shows up in 10 days. Handmade, bespoke fashion from London... ah, it's too good to be true, no delivery yet outside the UK!

apparently, they've got more than 1,000 designs created already (once you do a design, others can buy it). Looks fairly pricey, $330 in the example I saw.

I must say, I find the grey mannequins a bit creepy!

no word on when kid clothes will be on the menu but we'll keep an eye out. of course, we'd really like to have access to some oilily fabrics. of course, we'd have to come up with a London address where they could send that fabulous girls holiday dress
