the breaking in of shoes

*Wedges: Aldo

Peter and I spent a little bit of time today finding the pixie market shop in chinatown. It was the perfect weather for walking around, only too cold if you stop moving. I bought these shoes which are amazingly comfortable and decided to break them in immediately. I need instant gratification. And after I rummaged through every single item at the pixie market shop, we walked around and discovered Self Edge (where peter must buy his jeans) and this awesome fabric shop. Unfortunately, we went to grap a bite and when we got back it was closed. but i plan on returning to hunt for some awsome antique buttons to add to my ever growing collection.

Rainy days are here again

I know Felicia just had an umbrella post not too long ago, but look at this contraption.
From Joon&Jung, two South Korean designers in their conceptual product design studio in the Netherlands.

Gone Hunting

Alright, so kind of funny showing a child's fashion pic, but I am in love with this shot from the kids' line at KENZO. Since I work with kids' clothes & design, I am constantly on the prowl for cool catalog approaches, and this is just too much. This European rustic hunt look topped off with two stuffed animal kills, is so silly, creative, fashionable, ingenious and quite honestly, pretty daring. Something we would never see here, in good ole usa.

I Spy

New upcoming ad campaign for Oliver Peoples has me shocked that a hobbit could ever look so HAWT!!! I feel kind of wrong. Side note: a friend in LA just served Shirly Manson a Macciato the other day. NUTZZ.

Could it be? A cool umbrella? what's next, internet without the hassle of wires?! ha. that'll be the day...

happy birthday to me

mine, Mine, MINE!

boyfriends give the best gifts when you tell them what you want. thank you peter.

when will it end?!?!

By the time I remember to check pixie market, all the really friggin rad stuff is sold out. Then as I look through the lost opportunities, I get so angry and frustrated that I don't go back for another couple of weeks. Then finally, when I've calmed down, I check again just in time to see all the new friggin cool stuff just got sold out... it's a vicious vicious cycle...
