Sea Hole in my heart

newhole On May 31st, Drinkinstein Sorbet, one of my most most most favourite creators, will be closing her shop The Sea Hole. Until then, everything is 50l. You know Ms. Sorbet’s work from Collabor88, which she founded. Her touchable fabrics, sophisticated colours and signature sea-themed embroideries will be missed. (Or they will stay on Marketplace?!) Several bloggers have said goodbye with a pic of the Valley Dress, so I am following suit. If you don’t have time to scour the racks of The Sea Hole before it closes, make a shopping list from the Marketplace shop, or take my advice and search out the Nicosia Sun Suit, which is perfect for summer. If you have a sense of humour, check out the Octo Dress.


I’ve blogged The Sea Hole’s wonderful creations many times, but I chose to rerun only this pic because, unlike many of my older, pre-GIMP photos, this one could be improved. Plus, mermaid on yer back. Credits.

I couldn’t find New Mexico on the grid, so I decided the wild west would have to work with the irresistible palette and creations of the Santa Fe collection at Collabor88. Last month, it seemed to me that too many items were priced at 188L and higher. This month felt more like the orgies I remember from the past because the loveliest items are priced at 88L. A girl can take home a handful of the fab furs from (fd) and a big bag of bodysuits from The Sea Hole without going broke.

Allegory Malaprop of Schadenfreude is fast becoming my fave footwear designer. This month, the lucky Collabor88 shopper—female or male—can take home the multi-part colour-change version of the new Amargosa boot for only 488L.

Hello, my name is Portia and I’m a GIMPaholic.

“Ever been to sea, Billy?”

I know that I shouldn’t fear The Sea Hole. It’s just another boutique. Even if it is draped in nets and smells faintly of krill, it’s no scarier than Pig or F’d Up or Inzane Klown Killz 7. (Okay, I made that last one up.) But think about all those eerie creatures that Drinkenstein Sorbet likes to draw on her outfits: they move weirdly in dark waters, their pincers and tentacles at the ready. Even when I don’t worry about being ravaged by tentacles, I can’t help fearing the sea. It’s all very well to be welcomed aboard a pirate ship by a sexy captain in a chic Harem Jumpsuit.

But how do you know she isn’t a ghost determined to take you deep into some depthy sea hole off the coast of Nova Scotia? A couple of suggestions: giant hats adorned with model schooners are always a sign of the supernatural; and you cannot trust an AV wearing Gato’s Dragon makeup, with cleavage or without. (Gato, by the way, will temporarily close its skin shop, so individual skins are now on sale for 100L and fatpacks are 500L.)

We all know that bone-chilling things occur at sea. Things like the blowing of cold, brisk air and the consumption of caviar. When I was ten, I crossed the Atlantic ocean on a Russian ship and was so hungry that I ate every last completely unrecognizable thing on my plate.

Yes indeed, the sea air makes everyone indiscriminate.
