    That doctor seuss piece was crazy, but the side bar link at Collectors Weekly (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/leading-the-charge-against-casual-style/) took me to an even more crazy fabulous piece. Thanks you made my day with these finds.

        From the CW piece: “One woman told me that she actually looked forward to my entering a room because I elevated the energy in the room. That’s when I got that what I do, the dressing, is important and that it’s my way of contributing to the world. It is a gift, and the way God expresses herself through me. I’m so grateful for this art form because I don’t have to invite you to my studio to see my painting. You get to see it on me. I get to wear it, live it, be it. As a bicyclist, it’s great fun because I bike all over the city, and I give them all a show.”

        OMg, my new heroine!

        Also, cr*p. There go all my excuses for not riding a bike.

          yes, aren’t those clothes amazing! And the photos just go on and on. She really is a charachter and she does that pistachio green Bianchi justice. I do think she should wear a helmet though, one traumatic brain injury and all that great fashion mojo is down the drain.
