Found these cool palaka fabric fashions on a Japanese fashion blog while googling "palaka". Palaka is the Hawaiian word for plaid and is what most of our paniolo (Hawaiian cowboys) where in Hawaii. What a cool find!!! Very creative mixing of fabrics!

Inspired by photoreality
I particularly like photoreal prints that reproduce nature with landscapes, ocean surf and florals.
Are you feeling photoreality?

A DIY challenge
As discussed yesterday, things surfy and photorealistic are hot fashion items right now.
So my DIY challenge is to decide what to do with the image above, which comes to us via Walmart.
Alert fellow blogger Maya Griggs from
Soccer Mom Style
came across Get a Life photoreal t-shirts at her local Walmart. Being a
fellow fashionista, she immediately saw the high end DIY potential of
these ridiculously cool shirts for $11.
Since they aren't available online, she kindly sent me one. I never got so excited about a t-shirt.
But what to do with it? Not as in a lack of ideas but as in
I could just keep it as a t-shirt a la Marios. (A Marios shirt is $165 and out of stock to boot.)
I could make it it into a pencil skirt or a mini dress a la Suno.
Or I could turn it into a pouch or clutch a la Jimmy Choo, Samudra or Dezco.
