I’m really enjoying these pictures from an old Vogue UK! (May 2006, f.y.i.) They’re by the amazing Tim Walker, of course! So inspiring!
I saw these pictures on Black*Eiffel!

footprints

These amazing footprints worn into the wood are real! Buddhist monk Hua Chi has been praying in the same spot each day (many, many times a day) for over 20 years at his temple in Tongren, China. Hua Chi is 70 years old now, and according to this article, his footprints inspire the younger monks at the temple.
“Every day I come here and every day I look at the piece of wood, and it has inspired me to continue to make the footprints myself,” Genden Darji, a 29 year-old monk in the monastery, notes.
So awesome!

I love these pretty behind-the-scenes shots from Australian Fashion Week! I can’t get the blue eyeliner underneath the middle model’s eyes out of my head! I want to try it, with a number of different colors. I think it might be something I’d have to wear out at night though, not so much of a day look… What do you guys think?

P.S. Do you think the big bun on the bottom model is all her natural hair??

i have done my makeup exactly like that, with a thick line of colorful liner on my bottom lid a lot. i love it in the summer! you can totally work it in the day too, just make the line thinner and more subtle, even try not extending it all the way into the inner corner of the eye. when night comes, just slab more on! i rely on urban decay 24/7 liners to do the job cuz they dont budge. they actually have a color exactly like the one the model is sporting, it's called "electric".

I am so inspired by this project Color Me Katie created! She and her boyfriend traced themselves in various positions on black paper, cut them out and taped them up around Brooklyn! Then they waited and photographed people passing by when they matched with the shadows. What fun! Check out her blog here!

In case any of you are interested, I just wanted to mention that NY Mag’s Fashion section has a continually updated slideshow of all Michelle Obama’s outfits – The Michelle Obama Lookbook. It’s kind of fun if you feel like having a look-see!

These beautiful paper dresses are from Jum Nakao‘s S/S 05 collection. According to Style Bubble, at the end of the show the models ripped and tore the dresses off, to the shock of the spectators! This after 700 hours of work on the collection. Too much!
Anyhow, I could look at these pictures forever. These dresses are just so intricate and amazing! Be sure to check out Style Bubble’s post where I saw these pictures if you like them – she has more images and a video!

studded knees!

There are lots of studding DIY ideas out there, but I’m am loving this! You could stud up some denim scraps and patch them onto a pair of old jeans that need some new life.

When I saw these pictures from Prada’s stud-heavy F/W 09 collection on Men’s Rag, they really got me to thinking.
I have read quite a few fashion bloggers who are downright tired of the whole stud trend. For what it’s worth my boyfriend also thinks studs are over, though he is no fashion plate. However, Prada obviously disagrees, as do I – when I first saw these pictures I loved them instantly! I think all the studding looks great, and I especially want one of those nice shirts!
So of course what I’m wondering is what you readers think! Are studs getting to be over-played or are you guys still feeling it?

i truly wanted tell you that your blog is stuning thank you

I LOVE the studs and spike I am seeing on things this year! I have been using these on my DIY creations for years. THE BEST place to go is www.studsandspikes.com , they are fast, cheap, have a great selection and are really nice.

Missbehave just did a REALLY inspiring interview with the girls behind Madison Harding shoes. Barri and Hilary talk about how they started the company with no money while working separate full-time jobs and knowing close to nothing about designing shoes. They make you feel like you can do it! Start your own business!
The interview is really funny and awesome. And they mention one of their favorite places they are selling to: Free People! You can check out their Stud Fringe Sandal featured in our March catalog.

i love the style of both pics. The second one has an unusual way. Definitely any woman in the world wants to look different from others.

Thanks for your question, Maureeny. Roger is sporting a beautiful fur parka. Sometimes he accesorizes with Free People scarves and feather headbands.

The real question is...What is Rodge wearing today?

how-to satin stole

I love this tutorial from Weekend Designer on how to make your own satin stole! It’s such a gorgeous piece for spring and summer – great for dressing up an outfit, to go out dancing or to go to something fancy like a graduation! Try it for yourself here, it’s a pretty simple pattern!
