Earnest Cut & Sew Concept Store - you can customize any of their many jeans/skirts/etc... choosing the perfect buttons, rivets, pockets... combined with gorgeous wood installations... and classic bikes (Jorg & Olif Dutch Citybikes showcase!).... and design mags. It was absolute heaven, so be prepared for many pictures below.

Funky Oysters - Camilla - Iridescent Gray, Bun Pearls, 3 Woven Strands, Short Length. No Good For Me has a discount coupon (code: FUNKYSMR) for 20% off until 06.15.07 - and i'm tempted, they've got some really fun pieces.
I never thought i'd say this, but this must be the perfect present for the teenage mom studying for SATs in your life... or your teenage babysitters... or your mail order bride. I mean, lets be honest here, its clearly not for the baby to learn some vocab early, they're barely on making sounds at that stage! But none the less, turning your child (or any child) into your human flash cards just might be crazy enough to help you score a few more points. SATees.
Granted i'm not a huge sneaker girl (although i do love my share of shoes)... i DO love packaging, and while i didn't know what to think when i first got emailed by Jason Markk... i'm quite impressed with their gorgeous packaging. Premium sneaker cleaner - in a quality mini sneaker box, with playful labeling and what resembles paint splatter and koi. And within the box... 8 oz. Premium Sneaker Solution and Sneaker Cleaning Brush. Gorgeous - see my hands on pics below - nice attention to detail.
What does a kiss LOOK like? How does what it looks like convey what it FEELS like? I'm not sure, but there is something complex and sensual about these pieces by Lola & Bailey ~ and this "The FIRST Kiss" collection. There are 5 kisses in all... here are the first four... check out Lola & Bailey to see the 5th. I discovered them through .org #4005.
Hard to believe its time for America's Cup already again ~ and checking out Style.com's nautically inspired slide show, i discovered Rogues Gallery. Gorgeous men's line for the sailors and captains in your life... and something about the combo of the line, their models, the photography... makes you swoon a little, no? Loving the graphic design... and check out the simple hoodie below as well as a few others.
Sub Urban Riot ~ i've fallen for this Extinct shirt ~ silhouettes of dinosaurs forming a skull and cross bones ~ and black and white. Also the egg of birds and the baby of mammals... more images below of their adorable dresses and site.
Antenna ~ go write it down. This is a magazine to look out for this summer! Preview issue just showed up and i'm smitten. As much as blogs amuse me, they will never replace my need for magazines... something about precise layouts, the touch and smell of paper, the way you can FLIP through a stack of pages... its not to be replaced! That being said, Antenna got my magazine excitement going again, especially since it has some fun graphic design, and reads like a mix between Lucky magazine and design magazines with a dash of the street/skate scene. (oh and its more guy slanted, but without the softcore)... this issue literally goes from A to Z as you can see in the contents page, and between the "real" articles... i'm loving their layouts for themed pages... like roundups of great glasses, cell phones, candy, condoms, bomber jackets, skateboards, and so much more... so here's a sneak peak of some of my favorite pages to keep you going until August 2007! [and the (N)EEDS- morning after section cracked me up.]
Spring has sprung, or so it feels all up and down California these days. And with spring comes spring fashion... in all its bright happy colors, fun prints, and face it... people just tend to be in better moods around the world this time of year... Gardenia Carry-All at Anthropologie.
Somewhere in the cross section of design, food, and fashion (yes, picture the ven diagram here) ~ you will find APRONS... and they are getting sexier, more playful, and far too cute to wear only in the kitchen now. I've shown you the adorable aprons of Jessie Steele before, but check out the latest selection from Anthropologie. So with all the deliciousness to learn to cook on Tastespotting, i think its time i invest in one (or two, or a few?) cooking outfits!
Mmmm York Mints... the packaging makes me drool as much as the mints i think... but on the black and white tin... as much as i love the typography of the old school tin, the Nicole Miller black and white is just gorgeous. These are a collaboration between Hersheys and Young Survival Coalition, an organization that unites young women against breast cancer.
This post goes out to RUGenius as an early bday card of sorts (she's turning the big 22 on thurs!) ~ and as the design loving, saver of animals, nearly phd having, fencer in my life... this fashion photo set by Rasmus Mogensen was too breathtaking not to feature. And there's something about swords ~ and fencing masks... dangerously playful perhaps?
Humility is no issue for these guys... Insanely Great Tees. But as i sit fighting with the ever crashing photoshop tonight, these tees caught my eye as i clean through the inbox... clean, subtle, playful, and oh so design geeky... i think the eraser is my fav right now.
There's a fine line between sweet and sinister and french line Locher's dances happily right on that edge... blending the sweet and delicately naive feel of embroidery, with sayings to force a double take and then add some gorgeous web design and brilliant photography... and i'm smitten.
"you suck" - "I don't play nice" - "fuck off" - "Life is fucked up" - "Insatiable little thing" - "Casse-pied" - "I hate children" - wow. so much can be said so beautifully. Also, love her hair!
What happens when two playful pups meet a gator? Apparently this brilliant collaborative collection from Lacoste featuring Cap & Pep of Colette fame. My favorite aspects are really the gorgeous packaging as well as the playful nature of the characters interactions on the products... see more imagery below. Via TrendsNow.
Diesel takes on global warming as only they can... making their latest campaign poignant yet subtle, stylish yet absurd. Focusing on people and places... and claiming in their video that "GLOBAL WARMING CANT STOP OUR LIVES" ~ and thus begins the series of images below, about how although the polar ice caps are melting, etc you can still look good and embrace the heat... Above we have the overgrown tropical gardens in Paris... below there are the macaws who have replaced the Venetian pigeons, warm oceans in Antarctica, the tiny island of London, a post-great-flood Rio and NY, the giant desert that surrounds the great wall, the tropical paradise of Mt. Rushmore... gorgeous imagery from the great Terry Richardson. Global Warming... as approached in a way only Diesel can. Complete with links to stopglobalwarming.org and an inconvenient truth.
WAGS Boutique ~ the british reality tv show over at ITV... " For 13 weeks, the girls (more used to maxing out their credit cards than swiping other people’s) will swap shelf-browsing for shelf-stacking as they set up and run two rival fashion boutiques in central London. From designing the stores and selecting stock to marketing and perfecting their sales technique, the ten WAGs will require determination, flair and a head for business to succeed."
Tobias Carlson and partner at M&C Saatchi London made some fun visuals to go with the show... (more below)... the Chihuahua Urinal in particular cracks me up... although i cant imagine that going over well as boys are stumbling home from the bars? Fun campaign.
On interesting trends ~ the bird/nature inspired trend doesn't seem to be fading anytime soon, and an interesting emerging trend are the use of feathers (to go with the many bird silhouettes we've been seeing the last man months?)... Turtle Dove Feather Headband at Free People. It adds an interesting texture to the look, so natural, yet so controlled, and a nice contrast in the black and white. They also have two peacock feather variations.
Air Necklace from Kyouei Designs ~ the guys who brought us the much talked about balloon lamp and honeycomb lamp. The air necklace really is just a nicely shaped extravagant mylar balloon ~ not sure how nice those edges would feel, and too bad they dont have a picture of someone wearing it~ but fun idea.
In light of all the foooood over at Tastespotting today, i've been both famished and inspired... especially in the photography realm. Often i find the most intriguing pieces to be the behind the scenes of catalog shoots, etc... take this Kate Spade set for example, the final shots are gorgeous! In a very surreal, retro, playful, glammed out sense... and then the behind the scenes shots manage to balance those same qualities, while adding another layer of realism to them. Basically, they just made me want to run out and take pictures... or start planning NOTed #2. (via love made visible)
Stumbled upon this Vlieger & Vandam GMT (glasses - music - tickets) "basic travel equipment for all time zones" bag and it appealed to my inner jetsetter. Something fun about that envelope like pocket... not exactly the most subtle of pockets... and what about the most critical - mobile phone!!! But i suppose music and phone are really one in the same these days. The details were cute, the quality looks nice, and it would be a good fit for my quick/short in and out of planes, trains, and automobile trips...
