A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever

If only I had an income, I would have to buy this embroidered silk biker jacket.   It is not just unconventional, but it immediately reminded me of   Gram Parsons and his white Nudie suit on the first Burrito Brothers album.

Same same but different, as they say in Thailand.

The jacket is at farfetch, by Laura Lees, for only $304!   Whoever Laura Lees is, I salute her. Here’s a close-up of some embroidery on another one of her designs.

Oooooh! Do you love it or do you love it?!

Well, fuck. I have no money but if you’re a wealthy stalker, I’m a size small. Let’s take our minds off shopping by listening to the poignant raw beauty of Gram’s voice. Gone but never, ever forgotten.

    Ooooooh! I love it! It is totally reminiscent of Gram’s Nudie Suit! I love Nudie Suits, and I love sweet, sweet Gram. You know, I’ve been to his grave here in NOLA (whether or not he’s in it). I think you need to sell all those jeans and leather jackets and boots you don’t wear, and then reward yourself with this jacket. As a tribute to Gram!

    That jacket is unbearably cool. Hope a wealthy benefactor happens upon this post, and SOON.

    Very Nudie indeed. Good call.

  4. I think you’d look fantastic in that jacket Sister! Unfortunately, I’m not a wealthy stalker…

  5. Ooo pretty pretty. Wish I could afford it too! XXX Suzanne

    I am completely mad for those stars.

    Gorgeous! I weep to think of the cheap knock-offs that may present themselves in the not-so-distant future.

    I kinda cringed when I went to that wiki page…it reminded me of growing up in Malaysia…although my English never was that bad.

    I’m gonna be buying lottery tickets from now on. While I don’t want to expend the time and effort (apparently) needed for stalking, I’d happily, very happily spend any new-found wealth viewing a nudie Sister Wolf.

    Honeypants – I would sell em if I could! One day I’ll visit you and we can bring him flowers.

    Sal -Thank you! Where are they when we need them?

    WendyB- The thanks goes to farfetch. I wish they’d stop torturing me.

    Iheartfashion – Yeah, but it’s good you’re you.

    WCGB -Aren’t they amazing?!

    Ann – You think??

    Sonia Luna – Of course!

    Bex – Sorry. I do like that one expression, my BFF uses it.

    JK -I’ll keep my fingers crossed for your tickets.
