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.

Hope the fur is not real ... killing animals for fashion is unacceptable!!!

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!

I really like the soft and blended feel of these transition wallpapers by Danish designer Lene Toni Kjeld. The set of prints are designed to go blend together seamlessly, so that if you have maybe an open layout in your house, or a huge room, you can have two or three patterns of wallpaper that fade into one another. It looks so gorgeous, and I love the decayed look of the prints!

capri sun jacket!

Isn’t this a clever idea?! Sue of Sue’s Sewing and Happenings used a Vogue jacket pattern and quite a few empty Capri Sun juice packets to create this fun jacket! She looks really cute modeling it too! See a collage of her process here.

I can’t believe this is our fiftieth Thursday Poll! Wow. But here we are!
Last time we looked at some of the fun colors of the Cheeky Lace Bra – the Grey came out on top, but not by much! Violet and Pimento were behind by only 20 votes!
This week I’ve been checking out our pretty sparkly headbands! I love the sequins! Have a look at them below…
First is the Sequin Halo Headband, shown here in Gold.

Next is the Petal Applique Headband!

Now check out the Sequin Stretch Headband in Silver.

Finally, here’s the Sequin Bow Headband in Ivory.

So what do you guys think? Which of these headbands do you like the most?

I love the first one but am so sad the pink is completely out of stock - will you be getting more in soon??
Erin -Jul 10, 2009, 10:41AM
I love headbands so much!
