happy father’s day to all the free people dads out there!
these are not paintings- they are collages, made of actually plants that are carefully cut and placed in intricate arrangements…pretty astonishing. i would never have the patience for something like this, but stephen eichhorn does :)
he also has a tumblr page solely for collages of plants and animals that’s pretty funny :)
i love it that at any given time during the day i can walk around the office or outside and find something interesting going on… today it was these two outside working on something top secret that i can’t tell you about just yet but i can guarantee you will be excited about it… :)
have a great weekend!
anyone heading to the telluride bluegrass festival this weekend? i wish i was…there are a couple of bands playing that i really like, and it looks so beautiful and relaxing there – it definitely seems to draw a really laid back, hippie crowd. colorado is one of the few states in the US i’ve never been to, and i really want to change that very soon…
among the bands playing are alison krauss, yonder mountain string band, bela fleck, edward sharpe and mumford and sons!
there are some really cool old school photos on the website too.

now that we’ve told you all about the stripes trend we’re loving right now, i want to know which striped item is your favorite!
do you like bold and bright, like the WTF lace and stripe short sleeve top:
barely there stripes like the crinkle tunic:
textured stripes like the downtown date dress:
partial stripes like the super tank mini dress:
bold, all-over stripes like the dinner time tieback dress:
or multicolored stripes like the super stripe tank:
the winner of last week’s dress poll was, by far and away, the downtown date dress with 60% of the vote!
Whenever I hear the word ‘stripes’ used in the fashion the thought of Mods and Rockers of the late 1950’s early 60’s spring to mind.
Twiggy, The Who, Edie Sedgwick, Andy Warhol and his Factory are all icons that I associate with this trend.
Stripes are back again but not so 60’s this time around; think subtle, playful, girly stripes that give a pinch of boy, we’re moving away from the bold black and white signature stripe that has been so dominate in the past to a new refreshing, colour palette. Just look at what the designers for Spring Summer 2010 achieved.
Crazy coloured stripes, contrast stripes and stripes worked into knitwear. I think I might be a wee conscious to walk out in the red and blue Marc Jacobs number, However the cute little numbers in our Stripe shop will work just fine for me.
earlier this week i received an email about this amazing cause that i wanted to share. off the mat into the world is a non-profit organization that uses the power of yoga to inspire conscious, sustainable activism and ignite grassroots social change. each year, they sponsor an international service project called the global seva challenge, with a different focus each time. this year’s seva challenge is focused on HIV/AIDS prevention and education in south africa and one of the many events they are attending to raise awareness for this cause is the wanderlust festival! the woman who contacted me, christina, also told me about these amazing wristbands and anklets that you can purchase to support the cause that are handwoven from recycled materials. i love them and i think one would make a beautiful addition to the collection of bracelets piling up on my wrist!
