Funk N Trunk!

I can't believe the weather we've been having! It's been so beautiful out, and the sun has been setting so late that I just want to get as much of it as I CAN!
This weekend is Funk N Trunk, a selection of SF and the Bay's Finest in bows and baubles. It's going on at the Triple Crown (my new favorite Market Street spot). The place has food and tasty drinks, and a great patio for people watching. The Staff are very very very nice and the goodies are going to be GREAT on Saturday.
So, if you're not baking your white SF legs in the sun or throwing rice at brides (it IS wedding season afterall...) I'd suggest heading down to The Triple Crown!...... And not to worry, if you miss this one, there's another Funk N Trunk on the 11th of July (I'll be at that one!!)

Inspirations come from classic styles, flirty attitude, anime costumes, modern silhouettes, lace and trims, and playful details gather up distinctive items like feathered hats and hair pieces, jewelry, vivid clothing, and costume garments come to take part of an outstanding all-nighter show.

Designers include:

  • Ella Mental + Little Red Sparrow
  • Kayo
  • Dandelions & Dean
  • miss velvet cream x Estar x Josie Adele

Visor for Hollis

Hello friends of Hollis near and far!
Here you see the visor for the Bring Hollis Home Raffle....
Read more about her fantastic persona at
I had the honor of seeing her perform at Pandora's Trunk. She is truly an angelic presence, and I am looking forward to seeing her skipping around again as soon as possible.

About this Visor: It's a double-sided visor Side A is a red rattan print on a white cotton background with red polyester lace detailing and lucky dice stitched on both temples in red thread. Side B is a plaid fabric with lucky horse shoes stitched on both temples, also in red thread. The straps are red leather. It measures 10 by 6 inches and has 28 inch straps. Care Instructions? Hand wash or machine wash in a laundry bag on GENTLE. Lay Flat to dry. Roll it up and you're ready to go... do not fold, it messes up the shape.
