What a week my friends! They sure do seem to speed by! Happy Thursday! Last time on our Thursday Poll we voted on a few rompers, and decided that our favorite is the Grafitti Peacock Romper, which won with 178 votes!
This week I have been perusing all of our cute short skirts! I am interested to know which short skirt styles appeal to you guys the most – so here goes!
First scope out our LnA Zipper Mini Skirt in charcoal below.
I can hardly believe these are line drawings, they’re so detailed and patterned! They are the work of Japanese artist Kosuke Ikeda, who uses gel ink ball point pens to create these unique pieces. He has many other visually interesting works on his site as well, worth checking out!
How about this hoodie made partially from a blow-up doll by Mama Anders? I first noticed it because I thought it was funny to have a face on the back of your head, I didn’t realize it was a blow up doll until looking closer.
Mama Anders: I customize existing tracksuit tops with parts of the blow-up dolls…These dolls are so ugly and vulgar that turning them into something beautiful has become a challenge for me. The doll is a means to convey something else. Interesting!
Running the Numbers is an interesting set of photos by photographer Chris Jordan, in which each picture has a specific quantity of a mass-consumed item. For example, one photo features fifteen million sheets of office paper (five minutes of average paper use), and another shows 106,000 aluminum cans (about thirty seconds of can consumption). As you might imagine, in real life some of these pictures are huge, like 10 feet by 25 feet! Below are a couple of shots from the set; see more here, they’re amazing!
Okay so I know this is slightly old, but I just found out a little bit ago that Christian Siriano, who won Project Runway a while back, designed a bunch of shoes and bags for Payless ShoeSource! Those are some of them above, and for only 25-45$ a pair, they look darn awesome! I’m pretty into this – and I think I will have to get a pair of the chained up shoes in the upper right corner. What do you guys think? Like or no?

Check out this cool video in which model Noot Seear shows off the inside of her closet! She has so many awesome items – I can’t get over it! She has very ‘boy’ taste – lots of plaids and studs, chains, leather, distressed denim – she’s like a We The Free poster girl! And speaking of, you may recognize Noot from our current catalog – she’s in it a whole bunch!
Pruitt mentioned a Bleach Black DIY yesterday, and of course we love Kristin and Val! So we are a little sad that we don’t live in LA. The Bleach Black girls will be hosting a DIY session at Space 15 Twenty this Sunday! I hope someone gets some pictures!
If you go, make sure to stop by our We the Free store and say hello to the girls.
Massimo Gammacurta created these still life shots, which feature the logos of some famous fashion labels (I bet you know which ones!) as lollipops! Interesting, but mainly makes me want to go grab a dum-dum…
BleachBlack took this old tee and burned some holes it – and I love how it looks! She explains best what she did, so here is a quote: For starters, I think vintage tee’s with some sort of faded graphic work best… after all the point is for it to look lived in, right?! I would also make sure the tee is 100% cotton for best results. I used cigarettes, although I’m sure you could use some incense… just as long as it produces an ash. When the ash is sitting on the fabric it should burn from the center out and create this lovely burn color + hole.
Awesome! I can’t wait to try it the moment I get home from work today…
Can you believe this odd rug by Laurens Van Wieringen? It’s made out of little bits of polyurethane foam, in different colors and heights that make a mini-landscape! I would love to walk on it in bare feet – I bet it feels awesome!
