denim floor mat

I love the look of this floor mat, and to my delight, Instructables has easy directions for making your own – out of the old seams and waistbands from jeans! What a smart idea!

This is pretty neat. I think I'd probably use some sort of beaded or other fringe on the edges though. Neat idea.

I am really excited to announce the winner of the Free People Fashion Illustration Contest!

so fun to see all the entries. I was struck by how many girls selected the purple one shoulder top to illustrate. Katie is clearly a winner.

These whimsical photos are all from August Bradley‘s series for the Hasselblad Masters Book. I love the colors, the props, and the clothes especially! Fishnet tights over solid tights anyone?

love in july

This music video, for Sally Shapiro‘s song Love in July, is so so cute! It’s a little love story, and the animation style is really fun and unusual! Enjoy!

I love these cool “solaroids” by Jeff McLane. Have you ever taken pictures of the sun? I think it’s hard to get it to look just right!

I’m really enjoying the way the lines are placed in these cool drawings by Lis Timpone. The tiny details are really impressive too! I don’t think I’d have the patience to line them all so carefully! See more on her blog.

These remind me of tribal art from a region in India named Gond.

I love this cool idea from Merel Karhof! They have built a machine that uses the power of the wind to knit a long scarf along the side of their building. Periodically they take down the long knitting and separate it into scarves, each with a label that tells how long it took to knit and when! Very awesome.

What do you guys think of these creations from Jean-Paul Gaultier‘s recent show in Paris? They’re so dramatic! I can’t get over those unusual materials used to make the overalls! Not to mention the headpieces! I could never wear any of it, but the pieces sure do make for interesting visuals! See many more looks from the show over on Jezebel.

I was poking around on Penguin & Fish (one of my favorites) when I saw her post about illustrator Anneka Tran – responsible for the playful work above. Aren’t they great? I especially love the miso mermaid at the top – apparently she is a favorite of many others as well! Check out the rest of Anneka’s work on her site and her blog.

This image by Jonna Pohlalainen is so cool! I’d like to take one of those pencils and hang it across the top of a wall!
