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 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.

Love the last top so much that I purchased it a few months ago!

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?

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!

I saw these on an interesting little slideshow by NY Magazine’s blog The Cut, and I had to be sure and share because I found all of the illustrations so inspirational! See the whole slideshow here.

Karen Santry is not only an amazing artist but amazing woman! I had her as a teacher in an illustration class and she's such an inspiration.

I saw this picture over on Knight Cat and I can’t get it out of my head! What sticks in my mind is that chain headband! I know that more than likely it isn’t very comfortable, but with the current craze for all things chained and studded, I have to confess I like it! It caught my eye immediately. Have you guys seen any chain headbands elsewhere? Do you think it looks cool too, or are you not feeling it? Has anyone worn one? Are they comfortable? Thoughts please!

i have one from a few years ago from H&M.. very comfortable, i wear it all the time!
Chelsea -Apr 15, 2009, 10:36PM
I've worn the chain headbands, and I find them to be more comfortable than most headbands--especially the hard plastic ones. I prefer the chain headbands with the silk woven in between--it gives it a little more femininity :) However, now that I see this one, I want one like it!

Fun! It might look a little funny if you leave it on while wearing it ;)

record purse

Another clever use of obsolete music apparatus – record purses, by Chilean design student Natalia Pezoa! They look pretty cool! They would go very well with one of those cassette tape wallets, right?

Sam -Apr 16, 2009, 8:26PM
Yeah records are making a comeback!

glove dress

This dress made of fabric with pretty gloves printed on it reminds me of Doub’s beautiful glove project that I posted a while back. The straps of the dress are actually long gloves! It was designed by Tata Naka, (<--warning, loud site with no volume control) and is sold over at this boutique.
What do you guys think of the dress? I like it a lot, but I think it would be even cuter if all the gloves on the fabric were real too! Like fringe – - although, maybe that would make it too heavy and bulky?

Thanks for every other magnificent post. The place else may just anybody get that type of info in such a perfect method of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I'm at the search for such information.
PatrickJoy -Jan 23, 2010, 9:51AM
Don't stop posting such stories. I like to read articles like this. Just add some pics :)

All right. I couldn’t resist, I just had to post a link to the site that BleachBlack found the other day – Body Webs, where you’ll find all the clothing shown above, and much more. There actually are a few things on the site that I would buy, they look cool! There are also some outrageous items though. At the very least, the site is good for some DIY inspiration.
Anyhow, this torn and cut look has been coming into style a lot lately – what do you guys think? Do you like the sliced up look?

ick.. I pass as well..

Except for the top in the lower right-hand corner - which I think would look cool if crocheted or knitted somehow- I'd have to pass on this look....
