I sew clothes all the time...for my daughter.For me? Not so much. Even simple repairs like sewing on a button, or hemming a pair of pants languish for months in my unfinished pile, before they get to my…
The second I saw the TV challenge I knew I had to hit up BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. It is not only one of my favorite shows, but a motherlode of bizarre and distinctive fashion statements. Nineties and early 2000s + Southern California + crazy characters = BRILLIANCE.
