sable starr, probably the most famous of all 1970s la groupies.
started her groupie career early, probably at 13 or 14, hanging out at la clubs and meeting -and having affairs with- rock stars like led zeppelin, t-rex, iggy pop, david bowie and others. one of her greatest loves was johnny thunders of the new york dolls (dark-haired dude above) but his drug-use and jealous rages led to their eventual break up. after becoming friends with debbie harry and also dating richard hell of the heartbreakers, she eventually (at the grand old age of 17) decided to return to a normal life... she plays a large part in my favourite book 'please kill me, the uncensored oral history of punk' by legs mcneil and gillian mccain, and has fascinated me for years now.
her fashion legacy is one of lolitaesque skirts and tiny shorts with stockings and suspenders peeking out, crop tops and skimpy vests, platforms and high heels, hats, headbands, scarves, sunglasses... a pretty hot young thing!
old silky-spotted dress that my neighbours were about to throw away: made in guatemala! must be hand-sewn because the shape is very simple and the seams are funny, and its a little too big but i really like the longer length. combined with a couple of belts, vintagey-looking bag and my cardigan/coat, i liked the finished look so much that i also wore it to a job interview the next day.

saw him a looooong time ago, sitting on a dusty shelf in a corner shop near my parents' house.. today -finally!- i bought him! the old lady at the store said she used to have lots of them, including a lassie-dog, but her daughters took them all, apart from this leopard.
called him spot, he's the king of our house.

a couple of weeks ago i went to the "tell a story" trade show where cypriot and greek designers were presenting collections for next winter. a few clothes but mostly accessories - like really hand-made cool jewellery. all pics are from the official tell a story myspace.
