“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.”
I’ve been really into this blog Artist Quote of the Day. The quotes are typically from visual artists, and the entries feature images of their work and some brief brographical information. But today was Michael.

It’s Thursday Poll time everyone!
Last week we looked at our collection of denim shorts, and the favorite by quite a bit was the FP Studded Denim Cut Off Short with 138 votes! Today, it’s extremely hot here in Philly, which might be why I am looking at our new dresses – light and comfortable! Which one is best do you think?
First up is the Beaded Gallery Dress in black!

Next is Pattra’s Criss Cross Dress in sky blue!

Shown below is the Lost and Found Shirt Dress in black!

chair socks

Aren’t these little chair socks by Chris&Ruby funny? I can see how they’d be useful though, if you didn’t want to scuff up a nice floor or something. They look pretty cute!

These amazing pieces are from the graduation collection of Irina Shaposhnikova, who apparently just finished attending the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. The collection was called Crystallographica, and all the geometrical shapes and lines drive me wild! I’m dying to know what the clothes are made of – and how hard is it to take a seat in those pants?! So cool!

the art of fireworks

Using controlled detonations of fireworks on paper, Rosemarie Fiore creates these:

fioreArt3.jpg
From the artist herself:
I bomb blank sheets of paper with different fireworks including color smoke bombs, jumping jacks, monster balls, fountains, magic whips, spinning carnations, ground blooms, rings of fire, and lasers. As I work, I create imagery by controlling the chaotic nature of the explosions in upside-down containers.
When the paper becomes saturated in color, dark and burned, I take it back to my studio and collage blank paper circles onto the image to establish new planes and open up the composition. I then continue to bomb the pieces. These actions are repeated a number of times. The final works contain many layers of collaged explosions and are thick and heavy.

See more of Rosemarie’s fireworks drawings here!

Susie at Apartment Therapy came across a fun little tool on Paper Source‘s site: the colorscope!
The colorscope seeks to explain a bit about your personality based on the colors you like the best. Who knows where they came up with the personality traits you supposedly have if you like, say, plum, but it’s still really fun!
Here are the ones I picked!

I thought mine were pretty right for the most part, but I’m a sucker for anything that professes to tell me about myself from my palm, or my birthday, etc…
At any rate it was good fun! Check out the colorscope for yourself right here. Does yours fit your personality?
