Teeheehee. Notcot is now B.I.O. I am loving that phrase.
designed by Yorgo Tloupas “The F**K B**H badge is the ultimate airport customs accessory. Its metallic construction makes it sensitive to metal detectors, and its subtle message guarantees you a special treatment by US Customs officials. Revive the free spirit of the sixties today with a bold statement expressed in a flowery style.”
This was one of my favorites of the Stereohype B.I.O Series 1… that whole 60’s stylization makes anything just seem happier… or helps disguise its contents until people actually read what it says.

My first all alone at home screen print! Yes, i’m thrilled, its my little experiment of the day… in the very limited run of well… 4! But was experimenting with sun exposure for emulsion, and doodles with multi colors… and taking a paintbrush to the thing… If you recognize the image, it’s because it was the first notcot post image by Shade Elaine (and yes, i kind of had my way with it, to play with color and experiment).
WANT ONE? for 15$? Details after…
--> to more images

Few things in life approach such topics with such cartooniness… well… ok yea so ShadeElaine and i found this bizarre and tacky/silly and were somewhat horrified yet amused by its existence… but seriously, (or maybe we’ve been out of the loop) do you often see Sanrio-ized sex bangles? Complete with pink trains, minty green backing, and can’t forget those glittery sparkly Austrian Crystal bits! Wow… and if sex doesn’t make you say HURRAY! maybe “mmmm Carbs” or “Yay! …. Sugar” is more your style. [kudos to the Spear for this site]

Relish calls this white backed image a FRIENDSHIP RING It makes me wonder if i don’t have the right types of “friends” for a ring like this. But that tension ring (on black) is pretty sweet… i love things that look so clean, mixing that harsh cold steel with the translucency and strength of a jewel in such a strange juxtaposition… *gush*. Take a look at the rest of the B.Tiff collection, a few interesting rings, the rest i’m not as fond of.
p.s. i’m not shopping for rings for a specific reason, no “friends” to buy me diamonds… but maybe my curiosity for them is that right hand ring marketing schpiel working its way into my brain!

I have a thing for door knockers… and i need a belt. This piece intrigued me… a cute unique fun idea… possibly nicer on a different belt, but love the idea of the buckle.

BITTER? MOI? Hehe… ok i’m a fan of Doe most of the time. Not a fan of most vintage Disney revival shirts… (esp after that Fred Segal-Disney failed exclusive that seems to be trickling it’s way down the fashion world lately?)… but this pulled out a giggle. Go evil step monster of snow white ~

It’s a nice blend that i first saw on this amazing Dolce&Gabbana tee material corset (with leopard print bra built in?) with a purple backed art deco print… Well this is a bit more subdued… Butterfly Dropout has created a 2005 line of unique pieces that can be seen here. Crazy cuts, vintage prints, romantically funky? Anyhow, love this one.

Ahhh, packaging design. Just noticed the new Dior Show powder, and was quite amused by its packaging. Over the last few years we’ve seen makeup (and everything else) look to the past, and especially in the realm of the make up “puffs” [remember that adorably well packaged eye shadow by Shu Uemura with the little fluffy puff and clear plastic eyeshadow in clear plastic packaging?]. Dior just hid the poof into the lid of the eyeshadow… too cute, almost looks like food [japanese mochi?].
Get glowing with Dior’s “Color In A Flash” loose powder. Glide the puff over cheeks for a translucent wash of color or shimmer, or glide over shoulders and décolleté for a cutting-edge glow.
Not exactly playfully cheap at 39$ a pot… but i’d want to play with it.
Methinks that ¡tee-shirt madness! has hit maximum capacity. Thankfully, there are still sources of lo-fi, kinda cranky designs. Waller in the wonderfulness of Reckon Worldwide’s jagged, fuzzed screenprints and the serious amount of variety that can be found with 3 ink colors and 5 shirt colors.

First and foremost, go Tee Junkies. This newbie blog has given me a haven of tee amusement and great designs. I must admit Pre-Shrunk really doesn’t do it for me. So very very happy to be enjoying this newbie site.
But on to She-Bible… (found via TeeJunkie)…
According to the bio of the two chicks who founded She-bible, the term comes from mistaken translation of pronouns at the end of Ruth 3:15, apparently in the King James version, “she” instead of “he” is the standard wording, so it’s refered to as the Great She-bible…
I’m loving this Son of a Gun shirt. Not sure why, maybe the part cowboy in me coming out. But it’s adorable.

I’m craving shoes. Sorry boys, it’s just that time of month? day? year? anyhow i’m in a girly mood as of late. And i’m kind of falling for these shoes. They are in this months Lucky with brown ties in them, can’t explain the draw.
Anyhow for the more graphic/visual oriented folks of either sex… the Georgina Goodman Flagship “award winning” site is full of eye-candy for your summer senses, and a new take on how to sell/display a shoe digitally. Pretty, playful pieces, real art.
As for these ROO’s, check out these and more here.

OOOH. Everyone has their little life rituals. Mine happen to be painting my nails every which color when stressed. I think the drying forces you to be calm and sit still. Meditative. Or is it the fumes?
Anyhow, Wink Beauty created this adorable combination of Vintage Inspired Matchbox sized nail polish and nail file duo. Too perfect for purse sized emergencies… unexpected stress… or the sudden need for color. 14$

Remember when you have a billion links… and then you finally revisit some old sites and find they’ve grown and evolved into so much more? PixelGirlPresents was always a great icon resource… and i just dicovered, a funky consignment store as well for great handmades!
So above we have Voodoo Toaster’s Maki Lip Gloss Set [adorably edible like?]… old school cassette tape earings [funky gift for the playful rocker within?]… and just too cute not to post super mini sushi necklace.
And just in, apparently Voodoo Toaster is a friend of one of our new contributors hfriend! So more coming from him soon. The internet. It’s a small (big) world out there.

Ever notice that our perception of time has been shortened? Do you remember when Hard Candy first changed the way Nail Polish was marketed? Revolutionized the color possiblities with the pastels and crazy blues and names like Trailer Trash? And who can forget their trademark jelly rings? That was NOT that long ago… so maybe it was 10 years since USC student,Dineh Mohajer, became a cosmetics powerhouse, before being bought out by LVMH and then sold to the Falic Group in 2003. But seriously 1995 is not old enough to be considered VINTAGE, is it? Anyhow for anyone who missed the old colors, and old bottles… they are back. Vintage Hard Candy.

Nice solution…[center] For the girls, or maybe just to friends… a quickie. I used to love the guys Mach3 razor… then i forgot mine when i was travelling and picked up a Venus Divine (customized for women, etc), and while it was nice, a bit large/plasticy for me. So the free Schick Quattro just came a few days ago, and i just had to share its the perfect hybrid between those two by Gillette. It has the slim/weighted body of the Mach3, nice female friendly design, 4 razors, and has a cap for the razor (instead of having to have it loose, or on a big stand/case)… and it really has left me incredibly smooth.
