Did you guys have any idea that you can make your own sidewalk chalk? I sure didn’t! Mad Maggie Designs has some instructions right here. It seems pretty easy to do!

I love the soft hues in these two photos by Sabrina Jung, don’t you? Check out the rest of her work here.

500 colored pencils

Japanese designhouse Felissimo is starting up a new project soon, and it’s pretty cool! For 33$ a month they will send you a different assortment of 25 like-colored pencils each month, for 20 months. The different colors have names like Arizona sunset and drizzly afternoon, and come in really awesome packaging – works of art in themselves! I can’t afford to subscribe, but maybe someday! Until then I’m enjoying the pictures! If you want to subscribe, or you just want to look at all the fabulous colors, check out the website!

I am in love with these beautiful old floral paintings. Dear Ada found them, but she has no idea who painted them! None of the commenters on her blog knew, but maybe you do! At any rate, if you like these as much as I do, check out Dear Ada’s post – she has the images in a much bigger size if you click through, and then you can use one as desktop wallpaper! You know I did!

It’s funny how something so simple can be so appealing! The movement and colors in these ribbons of paint by James Nares are just so eye-catching! It makes me want to go put paint ribbons all across the walls of my apartment… I don’t think my landlord would appreciate that so much though…

Hi there! Are you looking to do another new face free people open call? I missed the one in the summer, and I am trying to get with free people. I am in the philadelphia area but travel back and fourth to new york often, and can whenever is necessary. I am a size 4 and 5'9, italian and getting my portfolio done this weekend. Please contact me if you have any information on calls or if there is anything I can do to better my chances.

Our intrepid Art Director, Doub, recently returned from a business trip to London. While she was there, whenever she was walking on the street, she took pictures of cute girls that she saw! There were quite a few really lovely girls, too many to post all at once! Here is the first sampling… I’m loving all the floral prints!

How cool are these drawings by Cheeming Boey?! Aside from that they are all drawn on styrofoam cups, I really like the style of the drawings, and all the little details! Cheeming’s site is cool, but don’t miss his huge and amazing photostream, since it has tons of his cups on there!

What a shame he's using a medium that is so damaging to the environment...

LOVE the first outfit. so cute and ethereal!!
ronnie -Jul 31, 2009, 9:07PM
i agree with Stephanie. The first outfit is cute; looks like a fairy! And the girl on the left in the last photo looks nice too, but the rest aren't as good as I normally see from the office.

This video is completely awesome. It’s made up of something like 35,000 photographs, and is a mix of stop motion and live projection mapping techniques. It takes about a minute to get really good, but after that – wow. I need some tights that light up like that. And a house that lights up like that too.

rainbows

I am really enjoying all the rainbow colors in Scott Hansen‘s work – not to mention the subject matter. Bears? Deer? Yes, please! Be sure to check out his site – besides his portfolio and blog, he has a fun music playlist posted as well!

I really like the muted tones with the browns. The posters have that retro feel, but they'd still make me stop and stare.

i love this, these are wonderful its like a new take on the rainbow

Happy Thursday! It’s poll time!
Last week we looked at the Studded Cuff Thermal top, and it was a close vote, with the Wine Wash color beating out the Charcoal color by only 19 votes!
It seems kind of early to be thinking about autumn, but just like there are already back-to-school sale advertisements on the television, we already have really cute blazers for when the weather cools down! Of course I have been browsing them, and I want to know which styles appeal to you the most! Here is a sampling of our blazers below…
First up, the Studded Stripe Blazer in Charcoal!

Next check out the Plaid Cascading Blazer, shown here in Red Plaid.

Here we have the Black Sequin Blazer!

Next up is the Lacey Boyfriend Blazer in Burgundy.

Finally, here is the Knit Mandarin Collar Blazer in Oatmeal Heather.

So which of these blazers do you like the most?

Just discovered your store! l almost bought the studded striped sweater yesterday. Have to wait . Hope its still there. I bought the Lace blazer, black lace dress, with green slip and the clash jacket. I'm over 50 and have sewed forever. Your styles are fun creative and original. Love your attention to detail. I'm hooked
