New arrivals: Sleevey Wonders now at Angel

Sleevey.Wonders.2Last year, Angel added a new product line to help you extend the wear of sleeveless and strapless dresses and tops: Sleevey Wonders. They’ve been very popular, and we’ve just received a new shipment.

They are a reversible slip that adds sleeves. It can also be turned around to cover cleavage if you have a dress with a plunging neckline and the evening’s attire calls for a more conservative or formal look.sleevey.wonders.flying

Today’s video is from last Sunday’s Grammy Awards, with comedian/writer/actor Kristen Wiig ( (Saturday Night Live, Bridesmaids) and 12-year-old dancer Maddy Ziegler in a live performance of Chandelier by Australia singer Sia (she faced the wall during the dance-off):Here’s Sia’s original video for the song:Here’s the lyrcis video:And here’s one of the song’s more bizarre covers by the six-foot-eight Puddles the Sad Clown (why does he keep fondling his furry buttons?!):By the way, New York Art Nerd writer Lori Zimmer wrote Tuesday that she felt the stage set for the Sia-Wiig-Ziegler performance was inspired by Vancouver photographer Jeff Wall‘s photograph After “Invisible Man” by Ralph Ellison, the Prologue. The photo was a cinematic interpretation of the 1952 award-winning novel, in which the main character, an unnamed narrator who is an African American man, lives secretly “in my hole in the basement [where] there are exactly 1,369 lights…powered by stolen electricity.”  You can compare Wall’s photo, created in 2000, with the Grammy set for Sia’s Chandelier:Jeff.Wall._Invisible-man-by-Ralp-Ellison-the-Prologue_1999-2000_transparencyinlightbox_174x2505cm_courtesytheartist_original The 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

He planned returning to Vancouver but got sidetracked when a friend asked if he wanted to try singing for a new band….Now Sir Geldof, he is best known for organizing two Live Aid concerts for African famine relief in July 1985, almost 30 years ago. The live concerts were watched by an estimated two billion people worldwide.
