Cargo Cosmetics has some interesting ideas this holiday season… gift cards and tags with lip gloss samples built into them where all proceeds are donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. They have also launched their new Color Cards, single use credit card sized portions of eye shadow colors packaged in a simple tin, perfect for purses and wallets. Purchase at Sephora
Ah, Emily the Strange. Ok wait, before you pass any judgement, these two pieces just made my night for some reason. I can’t imagine robbing a bank in anything else… she’s changed the way i will forever see ski masks… and that kitty stole. It’s just so cute, in a ridiculously amusing way. So it needed to be put up.
[please note: now that i have said this. i will never follow through with robbing a bank in this mask. So if someone does it. it wasn’t me. i’d have to find something better, and then resist the need to share it with you guys =P wow i’m getting deliriously tired tonight.]
Clutch. Sleek. Modern. Like a furniture piece thats part of your outfit. Handcrafted in Brooklyn. They are “committed to the creation of simple, elegant designs whose beauty is magnified by the inherent qualities of the natural materials” Also a large selection of gorgeous woody bracelets and trays available in various thicknesses and materials. Cero Design. I love the design, and this clutch is something definitely gift material for that eco sensitive design conscious person in your life. (ok yes. i want one. =P )
Om. Found this great little company at last weeks Fashion Co-op. Picked up a great Alternative Apparel sheer kelly green tee with the signature Om Gnome on, that i’ve been living out of the last week, and it just raises my spirits every time. He’s just so chill. And relaxed. And eminates that “everything always works out” vibe… just go with the flow? Definitely looking forward to seeing their upcoming line of Gnome yoga and active wear.
NOTA BENE for all NOTCOT readers :: They will be exhibiting at this Sunday’s ThreadShow in San Diego at Balboa Park, which should shape up to be a fun filled day of shopping, art, music, and hopefully gorgeous weather (and the perfect christmas shopping spot?) Anyhow, i guess i’m trying to say it’d be fun to meet readers/design enthusiasts/new people, so drop me an email if you’ll be there.
It’s been a heatwave throughout Socal lately, and definitely gorgeous beach weather… not to mention some of the most breath taking sunsets of my life (and i live for sunsets, grew up by the beach, and travelled the tropics regularly… so i’m talking seriously impressive sunsets!)… and these bikinis by Nicolita are just adorably hot. I’m especially loving the cut on the bottoms of the red ones “…her scrunch bunch bottoms are reversible with a ‘heart shaped fit’!”… not to mention the “Carmen off the shoulder top features adjustable ties to enhance the U-Shaped Neckline.” Also love the style of the photography by Dimitri Newman… playful and classic.
It is pretty, but different. It just tickles my fancy this strange very exhausting night. At only 25$ i’m not sure why i haven’t just bought it yet. It is sterling silver on a flat tigereye gem on a sterling chain. Nice one good bumblebee
This encompasses my feelings on love right now Well and i’m usually more of a silver kind of girl, but with all the dualities in this necklace, i’d wear it happily anyways. Subtle, but edgy. Love it to death tonight… happy Dia De Los Muertos… Anyone have links to a main site for Juliana Eshaya’s other pieces beyond the 28k series at Ron Herman?
Elizabethtown shook my world the other night, was in quite a mood, and with a friend got bored and went to see that flick, unknowing that it begins with such a tragic $1 billion failure by a product designer working for 8 years on one shoe for an Oregon “shoe company” (can we say Nike)… but that aside…
I was excited to recieve an email from Michael diTullo who is a footwear designer for the Brand Jordan division of Nike… Take a look at this new Air Jordan DJ Bag (incase he and you did not know, i have somewhat of an inexplicable obsession for bags)… which he and fellow designer Alan Strak designed for the “Rare Air” line. The bag holds an impressive 45 records as well as a laptop, and has pockets specially designed for needle boxes, headphones, and ipods. Brilliant. Their attention to details is also a major turn on, including the elephant print and micro perf leathers, custom brushed metal hardware, and vintage Jordan logos. Look for this bag in April for $180.
I fall in love with boys, but… not as hard as i do for certain graphics and ideas. Freudama und Sodele had me with both… i love their graphic design aesthetic, and the idea of locking these great designs as slide film images locked into various materials. Not to mention their story… i love a good artistic love affair…
united by friendship and a similar taste
in art and humour, freudama & sodele started out in summer 1999. they
design and make contemporary jewellery as well as other small objects, drawing from both parties different educational backgrounds. one might see their work as mini art, as lovable oddities or as roguish
They kind of remind me of the stories of Charles and Marie. I know i’m such a sappy romantic when design/travel/big ideas come into play.
What more can i say that these shirts don’t already. I feel like both of these encompass *me today. Cute. Check out the others at Modern Planet, but these are the best.
… oh and the “three guitars” rock too.
Indeed i amuse easily, but strangely recontextualized bits of levels/thermometers/compasses just seem playfully useful. Never know when you’re not sure which way you’re headed and a clean little ring can guide you through? Or when you’re burning up in a meeting… and everyone can see it b/c it is on your necklace? Or when you just feel a little “off” the level will help set you straight. Ahhh. Individual Icons goods as promised in last post.
