ATLANTIS UNDERGROUND-the peasant blouse (TO BE CONTINUED)

I do have something very exciting to share, and that is that my mom got one of her first designs for Atlantis Underground not too long ago and some stuff should be available for purchase soon.

Here is a preview of one of my favorite pieces-the peasant blouse. This will come in white, off-white, and black and with short-sleeve and long-sleeve variations.

Today I'm wearing the black long-sleeve variation-so in love with these dramatic sleeves.

 

(Since Friday I have been going through technology hell-my camera and my computer are screwing up, and then today my SD card corrupted and I lost most of the pictures I took. I apologize for the poor quality of these pictures and wish I had more detail shots of the blouse to show you-but you'll see those later. Sigh. It is so frustrating though. Really, I wish blogging did not involve computers.

So these pictures suck,but they're all I've got. I'll try to fish some out of my SD card again tomorrow, and if I can't I'll just re-shoot them. Or just shoot myself, haven't decided yet. JK. I'll be getting my computer back from the shop soon.)

    I like the combination with the headband. It so well pulls together the colours of the belt and the blouse.

    Hi Jane — That is a great blouse. Its texture somehow reminds me of a Dutch painting, really fantastic.

    Christina Chan, your delusions of eloquence are pretty tiresome. Regardless of what you might’ve learned in your Psych 101 class, I highly doubt your arduous, pseudo-intellectual dribble is adding anything to this blog’s entertainment value. People come here to look at interesting shoes, not read half-baked musings straight out of a freshman pop culture critique essay. If you think you’re some kind of an entertaining fashion blog maverick, “Champ”, I suggest you think again.

    I really hope no one begins to dress like you Jane. I would hate (hate hate) to see your special style dissolve into yet another ‘indie trend.’ I think we are relying on you to not let that happen hehehe
    please please please please please keep up the awesome work. I come to this site not knowing what to expect, and each time i arrive, i am overwhelmed by the sheer energy and passion which you pour into your shoes and clothes (and also a twinge of envy (inevitable!)). I am especially in love with your latest pair of Margiela degradé cowboy boots. They Are Art. also tell your mom that her peasant blouse looks smashing, something so interesting it could qualify for runway stuff. (i am a poorly fashionista, hardly any kind of magazine editor. but i really like what i see. gorgeous texture!!)
    also, the blue platform sandals are one of the most memorable to me. as are the A.D sexsome supertall boots.
    march proudly on jane!
    you make us keep our eyes peeled.
