Today is the USA’s Independence Day – it’s our 233rd birthday! Hooray! I hope everyone is out enjoying themselves and eating yummy food and getting ready for awesome fireworks celebrations like the ones above! I’m off to get ready and try to get my own pictures of fireworks!

Happy 4th of July! I always try to take pictures of the fireworks but they never come out as good as those pics you posted!

This thing looks so fun! This “net forest” was designed by Tezuka Architects for the Hakone Open-Air Museum in Japan. Supporting the creation is 500 wooden logs, and they were put together with traditional interlocking architecture instead of using metal. If I ever get to Japan, I am checking it out!

Check out these amazing swimsuits from Luiza Bonadiman‘s Spring/Summer collection! I saw them on Style Bubble and I had to post them! They look like they’re made of shoelaces, and I mean that in a good way – so intricate!

It took Wataru Itou, an art-student in Tokyo, four years to create this intricate paper castle! It’s called Umi no Ue no Oshiro, or Castle on the Ocean, and aside from the pretty lights, it features a ferris wheel and a moving train! Absolutely amazing.

The level of detail is truly amazing. I don't understand how someone can spend years doing something when I can barely make through an episode of the Simpsons

so much stuff similar to this has been popping up lately! the san fran toothpick or popsicle stick city model is pretty awesome too!

Hooray! It’s time for our Thursday Poll! Last week we looked at a bunch of our summer dresses, and Pattra is going to be psyched, because Pattra’s Criss Cross Dress was the favorite by far, with 44% of the vote!
This week I’m obsessing over bright colors. I mean, I always am to some degree, but especially lately – maybe because of the upcoming colorful fireworks? At any rate, I noticed today that our Cheeky Lace Bra comes in many appealing colors, and I still haven’t decided which color is my favorite! Below are five of the colors – it actually comes in more than five, I just picked the brightest!
First check out Violet!

Next is Pimento.

Now shown below is Green. (Yes, Green. I am not sure why we called it Green, maybe the trim… He he!)

Now have a look at the Hot Pink!

Finally, here’s a pretty Grey!

So which of these colors do you prefer?

The amazingly vibrant colors in these knit sculptural installations by Sarah Applebaum are waking me right up! I love how bold they are, and so texturally interesting! I’d love to wear that robe in the last photo as well, any day! Read more about Sarah on her site, and also on Beautiful/Decay which has a nice write-up about her.

This is a cute little montage of our Visual Display team creating some signage for our stores using stencils and spray-paint! Look forward to seeing the fruits of their labor in stores soon! The cool song is called Ride an Old Paint, by Pete Seeger!

Okay, so I don’t want to live here, but I definitely really want to visit! The site where these pictures originated is written in Japanese, so neither me nor Design-Crisis could make any sense of it, but the pictures speak for themselves anyway.
