And a few more recent interviews, bloggings, press…
The Globe and Mail – Lingerie too pretty to cover up . Mischief My Dear . Fashion Daydreams . inaccessory . tfs – Trend: Sock Garters by Sarah Joynt …thanks for the pixels people. That last kindly article talks about me like I am a sock garter instigator. Maybe I am?

More photo love for SWANclothing summer lace sock garters! Pics from Rebecca’s “Lace For A Lady, Letters For A Spy“ blog entry on The Clothes Horse. I tweeted oh so happily about these yesterday. Something about them making my Monday, but I have to change that, they make my week and more, more, more. Thank you Rebecca. And what a beautiful title too. I need a program to randomly generate fabulous blog entry titles for me. Will someone build that please?

There are more great close-up photos of the summer lace sock garters from Rebecca too, I will post them soon.

I recognized Rumi’s name when she ordered her thigh high garters but sometimes a girl just has to play it cool! But I was very excited that she got them. And now that I see the photos I am even more pleased.

And in Rumi’s words on fashiontoast… “light as a feather stiff as a board“.

I’ve gathered a few more of Queen Michelle of Kingdom of Style‘s SWANclothing garter wearing outfits here. Thanks again Michelle for your ingenious outfits and ways of wearing the garters. You can see in the photos that they have sometimes been clipped on, sometimes just been used decoratively, or the elasticity alone used to hold up some fantastic boots. Since Queen Michelle threw a leather harness over a SWANclothing sundress I’ve been game for all her interpretations of my work. It opens my eyes and gives me ideas.

These photos feel like the last hurrah for this past winter. And time to finally, finally, finally get into spring! I’ve already done the 1st shots of some spring garters. Coming soon to a screen near you.

SWANclothing sock garters in Time Out New York. Issue 751 : Feb 18–24, 2010. In “Shopping: Our Obsessions“. Nice to be an obsession. Funny to see my legs all over the place. Thank you Time Out.

And the online version…

Watch out for my overuse of the word lovely… Thank you lovely Anabela, the sweetly self-effacing librarian of fieldguided, for including her Latté SWANclothing sock garters in such a lovely post- “birkin inspiration, golden shoes, sock garters“. To have my sock garters paired with gold shoes definitely tickles my fancy, it’s like winning a tiny gold shoe award. View images large here.

This situation started out by my suggesting a trade for one of Anabela’s lovely ties, and it came in the mail last week! I love it. It’s embroidered “swan” on the back. I have to take photos soon. I feel kind of special.

I’m really behind on posting the recent pics of people with SWANclothing, more posts coming soon. Here’s the wonderful Queen Michelle of Kingdom of Style doing Double Garter gartering with her SWANclothing sock garters and thigh high garters. Obviously this makes me very happy! And I’m so glad that there are many people on the planet who still love their rock and metal t-shirts, since I still consider them as “basics“ in my wardrobe, I can’t see that changing soon.

Thank you again Michelle for lovely pics!

i am happy for another season to come. to make new things. to take apart old ideas and change them up just that little bit that will make someone crazy with happiness somewhere, i can only hope. you know? though i admit i am really enjoying the snow here. a lot! so spring with snow is fine too.

here are some more Susie pics. I’ll call them the pink ‘splosion Susie Bubble pics. they make me feel like i have 7-up in my brain and that is a nice thing. of course they are all sock gartery.
