happy april 1st! let’s start out the day and the month with a thursday poll, shall we? now that it’s getting warm out i’m taking out all my spring clothes and one thing i find i always need a new version of is a staple tank top that goes with almost anything. i could see myself living in any one of these this summer…which do you like best?
the sparkle heart tank:
the ruffleback cami:
the horizon tank:
or the sweet thing tank:
the sun is out, the air is warm and the trees outside are blossoming with pretty pink flowers that smile at the sky…
if you’d like to download the last image, head on over to our flickr page. i have it set as my background and it is making me very happy.
take a good look at this artwork…what do you think it is?
what you are seeing is the work of visual artist rosemarie fiore, who creates collage-like images by exploding and containing live fireworks to get these wild bursts of saturated color.
this might be one of the coolest things i’ve ever seen.
inspired by a painting they found on ebay and paint by numbers artwork, scott and cheryl white turned their blank wall into mural art. to do this they made a color transparency of the painting, and using a projector, traced the image onto the wall with pencil. they then created a chart of all the colors and assigned them numbers, and got to work painting! it took them eight months to complete this masterpiece but imagine how much fun you’d have doing it! read more to see some awesome photos of the white’s wall before and after.
i was looking around online last week for instructions on tie-dying easter eggs- as in this kind of tie-dye:
instead i found this. i’ve never seen this before… apparently silk ties have another purpose- they can be used to create amazingly beautiful easter eggs! i found a great tutorial on our best bites that walks you through the process.
The popularity of the Boyfriend Pant has just risen. The Spring/Summer 2010 runway trends(thanks Chloe, thanks Balmain, and THANK YOU Balenciaga)has brought a cool vibe to the much loved – “throw on your boyfriend pants and grab a carton of milk morning scenario”
The best way to wear this look is to roll up the cuffs just a little over your ankles, pair with sandals or wedges.Wear pretty tops to avoid looking to ‘Boy’ and layer your jewelry.
Cropped leathers and denim jackets also work a wonder on this look too!
Androgynous dressing is a look to inhabit, and I’m sure you can take this trend into Fall too.
We have just launched a Boyfriend Pant shop of all our amazing styles we have at the moment.

invisible children and la blogotheque are taking the polyphonic spree, yeasayer and lykke li to uganda, where they will document a series of take away shows mixed with interviews and local events. i love everything la blogotheque does and i especially love seeing musicians use their talent and fame to bring attention to important causes like this. the documentary will be sold by invisible children to raise money for the cause – if you aren’t familiar with it, check out their website: invisiblechildren.com.
