I love these book purses by Rebound Designs. Each purse is hand-made using a vintage hardback book and fabric. My only hang-up was, as an avid reader, I was a little bit sad to see the old books gutted to be purses. (Even though I want one!) However, Caitlin, the woman behind Rebound Designs, reports that most of the books she uses have already been damaged anyway. So hoorah! I’ll take the Nancy Drew purse please!

I’m finding some inspiration today in these cool pictures from Hedi Slimane Fashion Diary. If you’ve never visited it, definitely check it out! It has enough fashion photography to keep you busy for hours and hours!

the yellow tree house

yellow-tree-house-new-zealand-pacific-environment-architects33.jpg
This awesome tree house was built on a redwood tree a bit north of Auckland, New Zealand. It houses a restaurant, and was designed by Pacific Environment Architects as a marketing promotion for New Zealand Yellow Pages.
I’ve never seen a tree house that shape before – it reminds me a bit of a nautilus shell! It looks so pleasant! I’m ready to go there and live now! Many more pictures here and here.

hair & make-up

I was really struck by this editorial posted on KnightCat earlier today – but what really gets me is the make-up! Everyone at KnightCat was commenting on the hair. Her hair is great, but that eye make-up is just incredible! If I thought I could ever apply those gorgeous eyelashes in the first picture (without poking my eyes out) I would in a second!
What do you guys think? And does anyone happen to know what magazine these shots came from?

I visited several blogs except the audio quality for audio songs existing at this site is genuinely wonderful.

I am loving these prints of work by Jen Corace! They are so simple and pretty. Design*Sponge spotted them for sale over at Philly’s own Art Star! (The gallery that sponsors the cool craft bazaar every year.) Small world!

I love the way everyone dresses at free people! My favorite is the black and purple dress she is wearing in the sixth picture; any idea where I can get one too?

These pieces by husband and wife team Apak Studio are really adorable, but also really pretty! I love the sort of see- through/ethereal quality they have – especially the yellow one! As always, their site has much more!

1 dress, 365 days

I’m not sure I can explain The Uniform Project any better than the woman herself, so here is a quote from the website:
Starting May 2009, I have pledged to wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion. Here’s how it works: There are 7 identical dresses, one for each day of the week. Every day I will reinvent the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accoutrements, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies. Think of it as wearing a daily uniform with enough creative license to make it look like I just crawled out of the Marquis de Sade’s boudoir.
The Uniform Project is also a year-long fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India. At the end of the year, all contributions will go toward Akanksha’s School Project to fund uniforms and other educational expenses for slum children in India.

So freaking awesome! Check out all her outfits so far here.

fairy houses!

Earlier today, Debbie Schramer, the creator (along with her husband) of these delicate fairy houses, was kind enough to comment on one of my posts and leave her website! I am so glad she did, or else I may have never seen these lovely little creations! Aren’t they so cool?! I wish I was tiny enough to live in one! They are amazingly detailed as well. I highly recommend going to her blog and clicking on the pictures she has posted there. They are huge, and do more justice to all the carefully created interiors! (She also has a lot of great photo inspiration on her blog!) I can only imagine the time and effort required to make these pretty homes! I love it!
Thanks for the heads-up Debbie!

Thursday already!? Hooray!
We looked last week at the Fan Club Tube and our favorite color was Hot Coral, by a lot! It got 233 votes out of 566!
This week I have been checking out some of our latest sweatshirts. (It may have something to do with how rainy it’s been here lately!) We have a lot of cute styles, and I’m interested to see what tickles your fancy! See a few of our sweatshirts below!
First look at the We The Free Thermal Hoodie in Turquoise.

Next is our Draping Crochet Hoodie!

Now check out the Divided Highway Pullover in Melon!

I’m really enjoying the set Demoniac Babble by Estelle Hanania! Partly it’s because I like the costumes so much – wow. I’d love to walk around in one of those! The pictures have a really interesting feel though – click here for more!
