Besides being an AMAZING knitter, Yokoo creates beautiful fashions for us all to wear. Mother is a collection of Handmade & Vintage goods. They are sweet as pie and styled to perfection.

Today browsing through magazines at work I cannot believe how 90s influenced EVERYTHING is. Growing up In the 90s , Women were all about being STRONG. ” DON’T PUT UP WITH SHIT”. Thank you Bikini Kill, L7 and Seven Year Bitch!! Nowadays things just seem so slutty! why is everything so short and studded? I am old? is that what this means? OHGOD. Its nice to see some pieces return, Plaids and platforms. But really who do girls look up too? WHO? Miley??? Who and What inspires the young cats these days??? OHGOD I am OLD.
After my studded slutty realization, I started thinking of and who and what inspired me? Kick ass girls bands, Drew Barrymore, Edgar Allen Poe and of course VOGUE. l also started reminiscing of 90s outfits past WHICH ARE LONG GONE (sad face) My staple outfit, My emerald green floral dress from Smart Set, My vintage 50’s waffle plaid which I wore EVERYWHERE , Black Doc Martins 8 hole complete white scrunch socks. My Mick Jagger 70’s sparkle rock tee, paired with 70’s yellow and brown plaid printed bell bottom pants. And of course my darling Maroon converse and Maroon leather jacket!! THRIFTED FINDS ala Value Village. LAST BUT NOT LEAST :( MY Crushed velvet maroon Le Chateau tuxedo top with white cuffs and collar IT WAS A BODY SUIT!! which I wore with black bell bottom elephant pants! it was so En Vogue! WHY DID I THROW YOU OUT?!?!?!?!?! In order to deal I will just think we had good times together ( which we did) and I am sure someone somewhere has found them in a thrift shop and is wearing them proud. VOGUE editorials have inspired me for as long as I can remember. I used to tack ripped sheets all over my walls next to Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain . They always inspired me to dress better, push the envelope, mix and match and be creative with style. ENJOY X X X O
