Post image for drifting, drifting along

little drifters” is a project organized by booooooom and the vancouver sun, in which they asked people to gather pieces of driftwood, twigs, leaves, berries, dandelions, pine cones, feathers – pretty much anything that can be considered “natural” – and build a little boat using only these materials! they were then asked to take their boat to a body of water and take a picture of it.  i LOVE them! such a creative idea and people put together the most beautiful little creations.  here are some of my favorites…

the project was largely inspired by the work of lenny, who had this tip that i really liked for some reason:

“masts and sails don’t make them go faster, it just means you can see them for longer as they drift away.”

Post image for thursday poll – edition 103



i’m all about slips right now.  they’re light and airy for summer and perfect for carrying over into fall and winter as layering pieces. i have my eye on a couple of these… which one is your favorite?

the loving tulle layering slip:

the fields of lace dress:
18734848_001_a

the chiffon and lace tiered ruffle slip:
18681536_046_f

the sleeveless ruffle up solid tunic:
18731141_001_f

or the pointed maxi slip:
18884445_011_a

the winner of last week’s poll was the vintage mandala bag with 42%!

Post image for flea market score

fp jemma came in today wearing the cutest outfit – and the best part is she got it all for under $30 at the punk rock flea market in philly this weekend. here are the items she scored:

P1010041

P1010043

P1010046

long smocked maxi dress $5, native indian feather necklace $1, heart bracelets $1, moon stone ring $5 and moccasins $15.

score!

Liah -Jul 28, 2010, 3:34PM
Wow if I knew you could score finds like that at a punk rock flea market, i woulda checked it out. The name alone kinda turned me off to visiting it, because I'm not in the punk rock scene.
kristina -Jul 27, 2010, 3:18PM
maggie, i have those too. you mean they're just leather on the bottom? the leather will get dirty and turn black, but the leather hardens as you wear them. they'll eventually wear out, but they're pretty easy to come by at thrift stores.
