The buying team took a trip to New York a couple of weeks ago to go to the tradeshows and do some shopping. We were in Fabulous Fanny’s in the east village and spotted these amazing vintage folding sunglasses. We each bought a pair!
They come in very unique shapes and fold up to fit in a little pouch. Mine were a little big, so the shop owner used this machine that heats the frames and shaped them to fit my face better! The shop specializes in vintage and antique eyewear, and has other great vintage accessories too.
check out Free People sunglasses too:)

I’m loving these embroideries by Megan Whitmarsh! Aren’t they awesome? See more on her site.

OMG. Can you tell Oanh hello for me? I went to CSULB with her (studying fashion design!) I am the VM at the Anthropologie in Newport Beach CA. I had no idea she worked for the company! What a small world!

barcode revolution

Barcode Revolution creates these specialized barcodes for a number of major Japanese brands. I love them! I have often wondered why we don’t do something creative with barcodes – I hope this idea makes it to the US!
Also, don’t you think one of these would look cool as the graphic on a tee-shirt? Maybe the castle one…

actually, i've seen target do this on a hangtag for their reusable bag program. they have trees "growing" out of the bar code. cleverness for sure.

awesome sliding house!

This is just amazing! A man in Suffolk UK built this incredible glass house, with a slide-over cover, for he and his wife to retire in… I would love to live here!

I live in Suffolk and I don't know where it is! Suffolk isn't THAT big but too big to try and track it down without any hints. I love it!

Our newest catalog drops today! We’re super excited about this book and can’t wait to hear what you think. We shot it in a studio rather than on location, stripped it down and really focused on the models and the clothing and the styling.
Check out the photos online (or check your mailbox) and let us know what you think! Some “behind the scenes” info coming at you tomorrow, so check back then.

i love this catalog, good luck for the next..

I love this outfit! I could definitely see myself wearing it around town. It looks casual, but hip.

monique goossens

I completely love these designs by Monique Goossens! Especially the cup with a table and chairs – wow! See more here.
Also, why doesn’t my coffee maker look like this? Too cute!

Those bowls are so cute. They remind me of these dishes myNonna had. There was a rooster at the bottom of the bowl and tea cup. It was the only thing that would get me to finish my meals!

two-tone lips

I appreciate these two-tone lips created by Tom Pecheux for the Emanuel Ungaro show, but I’m not sure if I could pull this look off myself. I want to try it though! What do you guys think? Do you like the look? Would you wear it?

I think it's fun as long as the colors are light...I am going to try it this weekend!
Llana -Mar 15, 2009, 6:22PM
I love it. It kind of makes you do a double take. I think a red on top and pink on the bottom would be fun too. Oh or a coffee color on top and a burnt orange on the bottom. :)

painted castle

This is Kelburn Castle in Scotland, which in June 2007 was partially painted by the Sao Paolo Crew, who are Brazilian graffiti artists. It looks so cool! I love to see a castle that is over 500 years old covered in some modern graffiti art! And it’s so detailed! What do you guys think?

I spy Os Gemeos at work-- I love the yellow faces they paint. I like this idea but the particular artwork is too cartoony and random for me. Big old castles kind of creep me out-- all the elite intimidation and ostentatious wealth. The street art decor warms my heart. It's like an upgrade against classism.

whoa. unreal.

hearty cup

Aren’t these cups so cute? I just love them! Find them on MollaSpace.
…I wonder how hard it would be to make a similar cup except star-shaped? That would be really cool too!

How cute! Even when valentines day is over ;)

girls rock philly!

The awesome week-long musical summer camp Girls Rock Philly is looking for volunteers for it’s upcoming session this August! The all-girls camp targets musical development, self-esteem enhancement, friendship & community building, and nurturing individual talents within a cooperative atmosphere. During the week long camp, the campers form bands, and at the end of the week put on a concert! The campers and volunteers (who do not need to play an instrument or be in a band) have a blast!
They are having a meet-&-greet for volunteers a week from this Sunday. Check out the specifics if you’re interested! There’s also a Girls Rock Portland and a Girls Rock Chicago that I bet are starting to look for volunteers as well!
Below, check out a few of the bands from last year‘s camp. They are so awesome!
