Another great bracelet by Individual Icons. I read it can be a good gift for guys. I say, I don’t think so… I’m keeping it for myself!

Not just a label October 22, 2009

I came across this great website today. NOT JUST A LABEL (“NJAL”) is the leading global business directory for showcasing avant-garde fashion designers of today, nurturing the upcoming talents of tomorrow. It’s actually very refreshing just to have a look at and it makes you wish we’d see more creativity out there. I think I’m getting at a stage where my usual brands don’t feel quite right anymore. I’m looking forward to see this new generation on the streets (well, not in the bad way… you get it… I hope)

I’m as excited as if I had found gold! I’m in love, I want them all. Lilian Asterfield is the label created by genius goddess (yep… just that) Nicole Deponte. Her label is providing a whole line of one of a kind accessories all made out of ties. My favourite top (for now 10 years nearly) is a very shy version of what Nicole Deponte does. I’m ready to have a new favourite top! I just have to make a decision now… this is going to be a tough one.


Creature Hoodie October 6, 2009

Rocket World’s Creature Hoodie Sasquatch “Wild Thing” Edition is part bear, part beast, and part Bigfoot. They say it’s perfect for mischief, subversive actions, taking on poachers and corporate greed, communing with nature, urban exploration, and staying cozy… I’d love my man to have one like this… Yes, I like furry men.

Select your favourite place on earth and wear a custom piece of jewelery based on the topographic landscape. I really like the idea and if it wasn’t for the price I’ll get like 3 of them… yeah I haven’t been able to make a decision, so as usual I’m going for the easy way: I want them all!

Ooh this is just so wrong, I think I’d love to have one of those (I didn’t specify if I’d be wearing it). This is the way it works: It shows the number of Google hits you get, when you search for the name of the person who wears it (more info about the project here). Yes, I admit, I’ve googled my name in the past (okay, okay that was just last month)… and I frequently google names of people I know (yes, my friends, I’ve googled all of you and what I found wasn’t so pretty)!


Moustache Me September 5, 2009

I warned you, the moustache madness will never ends. I’ve just found out about this site: moustacheme.com that is taking the trend outdoors. On the website you can buy different type of moustache stickers, then you can place those stickers anywhere you want. Of course, this isn’t about vandalism and the guys from moustacheme.com they certainly don’t like that word… But think about how cool life would be if everything had a moustache!

Will the mustache madness ends one day? Hopefully not. The mustache is cool, that’s it. You have to accept it and even be happy about it. I’ve decided that I’ll put  an end to the craziness when I’ll find enough pirate’s paraphernalia to feed my daily post (yes I know who am I kidding? I should say: my weekly post).

Something nice to start the day with (though I’m wondering who’d be wearing a yellow jumper?). The weather has been miserable here for… wait… how long? I’ve totally lost track!


Loving crochet September 2, 2009

I need, I want to meet Shannon Gerard. For tonight she’s my new idol, my new goddess. I had such a blast earlier today when I came across her work: The Boobs & Dinks Early Detection Kits. It’s not only cute and funny, it’s also very helpful. These plush crocheted penises have little lumps sewn inside that can be found by following instructions in the accompanying booklets. The booklets also teach you how to perform monthly self-examinations of your own precious privates! Shannon Gerard writes and draws, makes artist’s books about hope, faith and human frailty, she’s creating those hilarious crocheted plush sculptures… and she also teaches courses in print media and nano-publishing at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. She just sounds like the type of girl you’d want to be spend time with, who wouldn’t love to get crocheted plush sculpture on his birthday? Have a look around on her website: shannongerard.org
