When I saw these pictures from Prada’s stud-heavy F/W 09 collection on Men’s Rag, they really got me to thinking.
I have read quite a few fashion bloggers who are downright tired of the whole stud trend. For what it’s worth my boyfriend also thinks studs are over, though he is no fashion plate. However, Prada obviously disagrees, as do I – when I first saw these pictures I loved them instantly! I think all the studding looks great, and I especially want one of those nice shirts!
So of course what I’m wondering is what you readers think! Are studs getting to be over-played or are you guys still feeling it?
Hooray! It’s Thursday again! I wonder if I would even notice how fast the weeks go by if I didn’t have the poll to remind me… Last week we looked over the different colors of the Sequined Mesh Tunic, and white was the favored color, with 220 votes!
This week I’ve been looking at our selection of gladiator sandals. Gladiators were huge last summer, and it looks like they will continue to dominate this summer as well. Check out these different styles! Which pair do you like the most?
First is up is the Gold Crystal Sandal.
Aren’t these creations by Blaze Danielle amazing!? I just love them, they look so carefully and delicately done. I would love to have one of these pieces on a tee-shirt, even though I would have to be extra-careful with it! See more at Blaze Danielle’s blog and Etsy.

Missbehave just did a REALLY inspiring interview with the girls behind Madison Harding shoes. Barri and Hilary talk about how they started the company with no money while working separate full-time jobs and knowing close to nothing about designing shoes. They make you feel like you can do it! Start your own business!
The interview is really funny and awesome. And they mention one of their favorite places they are selling to: Free People! You can check out their Stud Fringe Sandal featured in our March catalog.
I know that many different art alphabets have been making the rounds lately on the net, so I hope you are not too tired of them to enjoy this awesome Google Maps alphabet! I really especially loved this one, I had to share! These were found by Rhett Dashwood, and interestingly enough, he found all the letters within the state of Victoria, Australia! I’m serious! That really makes me think. I bet one could find an alphabet in each of the 50 American states!
Well, maybe… See the bigger version of the alphabet on Rhett’s site. Via.
I love this little project from Design*Sponge! With some Altoid (or other) tins and a few other supplies you can make one of these cute mini gardens! I think I will make the zen garden – a little sand to rake on my desk might be just the ticket! See the instructions for both here.
Happy Earth Day everyone! I hope you’re all having fun today, even if you’re working, and it’s raining, like it is here! We are having a blast and enjoying the Go Green Bazaar going on in 543 today! There are all kinds of Earth Day booths and some green vendors too of course! Some people are selling some green body lotions and similar wares, and it smells so good!
Though these dioramas are a bit less into realism than the ones by Thomas Doyle that we looked at last week, they are definitely just as cool! I love the creative use of random odds and ends in each little diorama. Aren’t they cute? See more at creator Ethan Hayes-Chute’s website.

These paintings are from an interesting set by Fernando Vincente called Vanitas, which focuses basically on “the fading of beauty and the inevitability of death.” While there is definitely a touch of the morbid to these pieces, I think they are strangely beautiful too. What do you guys think?
I want one of these hoodies by Headhoods so much! Which one would I get though? Michael Jackson, Audrey Hepburn, the Marilyn Monroe one I saw one the site? I can’t decide. I think they look so awesome though!
