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!
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?
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 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.
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 couldn’t resist sharing this USB port tie with you guys – what will they think of next!?
