In Search of a New Labcoat

I've been browsing the collections for a new labcoat. The absolute number one thing imperative to operating a lab such as mine is: Attire. If one doesn't look elegant, one doesn't feel elegant, and one is more apt to make mistakes.


Though this Giambattista Valli is dramatic and wholly impractical for wear during lab work, it's fabulous.

This Hussein Chalayan has exquisite lines/seaming/pleating.

Akris. Typical lab coat but beautifully cut. If something is just what it is,
but with a great cut, you can't go wrong!

This YSL is ultra chic and feminine, complete with utilitarian pockets!

Something about this Tim Hamilton lab coat/bodysuit conjures warm feelings in my chest.
I think it may be something akin to love?

Cross space and time and look fabulous doing it. Ok!

This article is spot on and fabulously true (though far too short!). I currently am completely obsessed with all kinds of aspects of science, as well as space and symbolism. All important topics to be fairly knowledgeable in- they will enhance your life here on earth exponentially, I guarantee it!

Fellow Scientist of Arts

I have learned of someone who shares my love of categorizing beauty in sweet little spaces. This type of organization is perfect for the unrelenting wonder of nature and the creations/parts of humans because the enclosures demand the close attention of a keen eye.

Please note Lyndie Dourthe's wonderous hand crafted beauties:

Lend an ear.
this is the best way I can think of to display fungi.

I love eyeballs.

Mercury Mama

After watching a recent news report ( ), I've decided it is now safe to introduce my patented modern makeup marvel Mercury Skin Powder into the US market (copyright Dr. J.S. Lovecraft- please write for further information- hits drugstore shelves June 2010). I've been testing the toxicity levels on young women ages 14-25. Out of my 457 trials, 98.2% of my subjects have died. However, they were the most stunning 448.7 deaths I have ever witnessed:

Isn't she fabulous?? This proves my hypothesis that form will always trump function.
This is now a scientific fact.
Thanks CBS news! Couldn't have done it without you!
