INSPIRATION: Odette, Ode's adventurous regular, sets sail on a sunny June day, equipped with sunhat, dress just flowy enough to catch the breeze, and plenty of outfit changes to weather all weather. She checks the rigging. Turnbuckles and cotter pins in place, she points her boat into the wind, dividing the water into a pair of waves. Clouds darken, the ocean churns, and disaster strikes. But fear not. Odette has come prepared. She swims to shore, shakes off the storm, and sets up a make-shift home, complete with walk-in closet. She'll be saved, of course, in style. In the meantime, she'll make a runway of sticks and snakeskin. She's a survivor.

Familiar to jewelers and sailors alike, this knot is a beautiful way of attaching two ropes so that they don't slide past one another - it is also used to close adjustable necklaces/braceletes as well as a stopper knot on a rope passing through a pulley. We'd love to see someone turn it into a hair-do!

A few behind the scenes snapshots of our MUSE series photo shoot with Suz Slezak, member of The David Wax Museum band. You can see the sun and the camera fighting for her attention.
