These pieces by Tara Donovan are both minuscule and immense! As always, I love to see small objects put together to create something huge, but even cooler that the small objects are so normal – buttons, pencils, styrofoam cups… That stuff never ceases to amaze me. See many more of her pieces here.
This dress made of fabric with pretty gloves printed on it reminds me of Doub’s beautiful glove project that I posted a while back. The straps of the dress are actually long gloves! It was designed by Tata Naka, (<--warning, loud site with no volume control) and is sold over at this boutique.
What do you guys think of the dress? I like it a lot, but I think it would be even cuter if all the gloves on the fabric were real too! Like fringe – - although, maybe that would make it too heavy and bulky?

I love these brightly colored frames that TotallyJuliaRAd paints. So clever! I love the old ornate frames with such eye-popping colors! She sticks illustrations from children’s books in them for the pictures. I think I feel a DIY coming on…
All right. I couldn’t resist, I just had to post a link to the site that BleachBlack found the other day – Body Webs, where you’ll find all the clothing shown above, and much more. There actually are a few things on the site that I would buy, they look cool! There are also some outrageous items though. At the very least, the site is good for some DIY inspiration.
Anyhow, this torn and cut look has been coming into style a lot lately – what do you guys think? Do you like the sliced up look?
Can you believe this graffiti? It’s called ‘fire-tagging’ and the way it’s apparently done is the artist writes their signature in lighter fluid and then sets the area aflame. Well for a moment anyway, presumably they put the fire right back out, he he! It looks awesome! Reminds me of those high-school days playing with hair-spray and a lighter on the pavement…

Okay, so there is no way I could have come up with a post for these two shots, but I just couldn’t resist sharing them with you, so we have this random post!
First of all, this tax-form dress is awesome! Read more about the creator here.
That, and I’m in love with this little guy…
Isn’t he sweet? Our graphic designer Kevin found this little cross-eyed Brussels Griffon on Flickr, with Keeping one eye on you as the caption. What a doll!!
You might remember the awesome electrical cords made to look like vines that I posted a while back – well these sweet beaded cords are another great option! The ones shown above are made by Nathalie Costes, and they’ve got me wondering how difficult it would be to make my own! And I’ve got to add, I love those big chunky beads! So awesome…

This installation by Marieke van der Bruggen is really interesting, and really pretty! All the hanging twigs, branches and leaves are made out of colored glucose – in other words, they’re basically hanging lollipops, and visitors to the installation are allowed to pick of parts of it and eat them. The show doesn’t open until next week though, and to boot it’s in Milan. But, if you do happen to be in Milan, you can check it out! It’s the Jewels and Joules show, being presented by the Design Connection Brainport and Design Academy Eindhoven. Sweet – literally!
