Recently, WWD asked a bunch of top couture designers to make some sketches for Mrs. Obama’s inaugural dress. They put together a pretty big slide show of all the sketches on their site, and I have been really enjoying it! The sketches above are by, from top to bottom, Christian Lacroix, Kai Milla, and Reem Acra. I don’t know how Mrs. Obama will ever pick what to wear with so many fabulous options! See the whole slide show here.

I wonder who is paying for these fancy clothes (Mrs & Mr. Obama) since clothing costs seems to be a factor in our election process this year??

This quick little video makes me so happy! It’s nice to think about plants growing and living, since winter is starting to bear down on us! I love watching the little roots grow…

I love these photos by Rune Guneriussen – I can’t stop looking at them! The phones look like they are watching for phone predators… And the first picture is so perfect for wintertime, the lamps look so cozy and cute in the dark of winter!
See more pictures here on Livejournal, and even more on Rune’s site!

This video of the Reno Balloon Race makes me happy. It’s all sped up, and the balloons look really cute and cheerful zipping and bounding around so quickly! Enjoy!

Anyone thinking of the dancing mushrooms from the original Fantasia? The video should have that music to it.

whoa.

So I’ve been a fan of Julian Vallée‘s artwork for a while now – he is a master of working with cut and paste, and uses lots of really bright colors! When I saw this piece on Booooooom my first reaction was whoa, and then I knew I had to share it with you! I want to live in a world where that’s what it looks like when you spray paint from a can. Check out Julian’s website to see more of his work – total eye candy.

posted this image of a beach on Thailand. I’ve never been there, but I want to go just to witness this!
They release these lanterns on the beach as a symbol of good luck. How beautiful!


I love this video of Getz & Gilberto singing The Girl from Ipanema in a movie from 1964. Vintage, beautiful!

Check out this awesome photo essay by David Friedman! He tells about it best: I shot these photos at a denim factory in Kentucky that specializes in distressing high-end jeans for a few top designers. I used to scoff at paying a premium for jeans that come with holes in them already. Then I saw just how much work goes into distressing jeans, and I realized that these people are artists. You can’t just have any loose threads, you have to have the right loose threads. They can’t just be faded. They have to be the right color. A lot of work goes into making these jeans look just right.
I put my favorite shots below – click here to see the whole essay on David’s blog!

Aren’t these so adorable!? I wish I had them sitting all around my apartment. Emily Sutton makes them, and she adds so many wonderful little details! You can see them all right here.

glorious eggs

Franc Grom uses a little tiny electric drill to put literally thousands of holes in real egg shells. Fragile and amazing – he generally puts between 2,500 and 3,500 holes in each egg!
