Anneka tagged this Batty

hmm- hope you are not planning on moving anywhere in those - they might pose a hazard when walking.

Tori tagged this utterly amazing

Those pants have got to be the coolest thing I have ever seen, and I think that Kayu is pretty sweet as well.

becsta tagged this ...interesting

you weren't kidding about the pants being demented. Not exactly an everyday wearable item, but definately interesting.


those pants are stupid

person tagged this trippy

Sheena looks good in this dress. But it looks uncomfortable to waer i think. ds r4

pimientaconcerezas tagged this Batty

How about for the LAST (Fri)day of the UP, we all show our support of Sheena and the kids and gather up all the fabulousness we can, for LBD Friday. This time, let's try to ring in as many friends as we can and get them to participate!

che tagged this Batty

I often ruin clothes by spilling something on them or ripping them etc. How have the dresses faired? I am not suggesting you are like me but..What is the worst thing that has happened? They are obviously very well made to have lasted the distance.

Claire tagged this Beeezarrrre!

But but how do you walk without tripping up?! Confused yet intrigued...a good state of mind for a Wednesday morning.

san.gri tagged this Crrrrazzzy

I would definately go mad if I had to walk around whole day in such pants, lol. I wonder how you do it - you're a true superwoman!

Anonymous tagged this Brave

looks uncomfortable and impractical - like being incarcerated

jules tagged this unique

...or like wearing a long dress. it's amazing how scared of something different people are. it's the same length and slack of a dress. it just looks different, which is why it is great.

noa tagged this hmmm....

creative or crazy? i'm on the fence

Linda tagged this Batty

Wow ~ please don't trip, Sheena! :-0

wasabipear tagged this Neverending

PANTS! Genius.

modernfigurative tagged this Wild

Wild!!! Visually excellent, a great painting that would make!


It means "For the kids". :D (I'm very proud of myself, it was an exercise quite difficult =D)


I, too, was wondering how you'd walk in those, but I guess @jules is right - it's same as wearing a dress/skirt, just formed differently.... ONLY 3 DAYS!! Sigh.

Betty Anne tagged this Brave

Love the pants, stockings and pumps together. What a great way to accessorize the dress today! <3

sally tagged this Brave

@ ammakke we missed your enthusiam & positivity where have you been?

Outrageous When I move my body When I'm at a party In my sexy jeans When I'm on the scene


awesome and interesting. but truly, only you could pull this off.

jolly M tagged this expect the unexpected

unusual..unique make & wear 0f a denim...why not? all for the kids..I am fascinated by the striking angular white pattern by the hem of your black dress & the blue denim, intented or not !!Also if one focusses on the white pattern for a while the denime can be visualised as an unusual skirt with a white angular patch...anybody wants to try ?

Farmer Beth tagged this Paradigm Shift

This shifts the way space gets defined when wearing basic pants or skirt/dress. Having grown up in a subcluture where women/girls were encouraged/mandated to wear dresses or skirts, I love the way this plays with the whole definition of what we wear. It feels a little revolutionary, somehow. (My security words are "the kulyabko." What the heck is that?)

Jesse tagged this A Fond Farewell

I am so sad for the U.P. to end. It has changed so many lives including mine and 214 kids in India. I cried while watching the picture book.

Ramon tagged this 4 more days!!!!!!!!!

Those pants wud b g8 fer a pregnant mama -- catch da baby as it falls outta tha birth canal. U keep it intristing.

Deepa tagged this Brave

Bahahaha, what a loopy outfit! You kill me!

Anonymous tagged this Batty

The pants...Ahhh! Not a fan of the pants, but the rest of the ensemble I do like :)

LM tagged this AWESOME!!!

Oooo, the pants are COOL! I love the stripy socks and purple shoes too!

Kim tagged this Yowzah!

They say nothing is truly original at this point. I'm not so sure ... those pants are like nothing I've ever seen!


Can April 30 be the (last) LBD Friday for all to participate one (last) time?

christine tagged this loop de loopy

christine tagged this shady lady
