These ball-point pen drawings by Anna Emilia Laitinen are really impressive! I can hardly believe they were done with ball-point pen! Amazing… More here.

Thanks so much, FP! I ordered the jeans in a 26. Thank you so much for your helpful and quick answer, I really appreciate it. I wanted to order the jeans asap in case stock ran out. I hear such good things about Siwy jeans and their popularity, so it would not surprise me! :) Have a good day. -Mushie Moon

Yeah! It’s poll time!
The winner of last week’s poll on mini skirts was decidedly the Tiered Denim Ruffle Mini, with a total of 174 votes!
This week I am really excited to ask you all about the Studded Cuff Thermal Top that recently came out. I’ve got to confess, I am extra-excited for this top because it comes in an XL! We’ve started making just a few tops that come in a size XL, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we will add more styles in XL! Adding to that, this top comes in quite a few different colors, which is always great, and I’m wondering which color you guys will think is the best!
First, check out the top in charcoal.

Next, here’s the top in melon!

Shown here is the top in white.

Next up is the top in teal.

Finally, check out the top in wine wash.

What do you guys think? Which color is the best?

Tough choice, but I think I would have to go with the charcoal!

I love this top. There was a similar one last year and I actually preferred most of the colors from then, but I never bought any! I'll definetly be getting the melon and wine wash (my faves). As for sizing, a lot of the tops seem to run kinda small. I'm a xs/s and would probably opt for a medium for this.

Valerie Molnar‘s work with knitting and color is really interesting! I like that it throws my eye off for a moment, and makes me think! Check out more here.

To achieve that hazy layered look, Brooks Salzwedel uses multiple layers of graphite, tape and resin in his work. I like how the pieces seem so still, yet they are kind of unsettling. Check out more of his work here.

As I’m sure many of you know, there was a solar eclipse today, which was visible to a lot of Asia. The always spectacular Big Picture photo blog by Boston.com has a wonderful post of images from the eclipse. The images above are from that post – aren’t they great?! The eclipse itself is so amazing, but I think my favorite pictures are the ones of people looking at the eclipse. Check out the post here – it’s worth it!

We are obsessing over this editorial from H&M Magazine! The pictures, shot by Camilla Åkrans, are so light and airy and warm! Perfect for summer. Also, you might recognize the model, Anne V, from our April catalog. See the rest of this inspiring set at Fashion Gone Rogue!

daily affirmations

Who can’t use a little positive encouragement each day? A group of five blogs, Kind Over Matter, Magpie Girl, Joy Rebel, Jamie Ridler, and Mirkwood Designs, got together and created this little set of daily affirmations with a cute box to keep them in! The idea is that you read one each day for a little inspiration! Best of all, they have put the pattern for the box and all the affirmation circles on the web so that we can make our own set! Click here to be taken to where you can download the patterns!

Yay for the affirmation cards! They're lovely!
Jamie -Jul 22, 2009, 11:15AM
How wonderful to see this kindness project spread! Thank you so much for sharing the affirmations and the inspiration. It's a joy to be featured on your site!

This charming work is by Brooklyn-based illustrator Aleks Sennwald. I stumbled upon her work on Share Some Candy, and now I can’t get enough! I love the way she draws animals- though the woman in the picture at the top is really engaging too! Aside from her website, Aleks also has a blog which showcases her work, and other things.

If you’re looking for something to do in New York City tonight, check out the The Phenomenal Handclap Band at Joe’s Pub! They’re the first band I’ve been tempted to call “funky” or “groovy” in a long time! They’ve got a fun mellow sound with dance-y beats!
