WANT




Trompe L'Oeil collection from London College of Fashion undergraduate designer Rosalind Keep is so genius, so perfect, so...

Unavailable in the U.S currently. =(
So I suppose I need someone to order it in XS when it launches in their UK store December 4th, wear it once and then eBay that shiz so I may purchase just in time for all the Christmas parties I'll end up ditching.

simple!


EDIT: GOT.

Part Deux

For those of you who spent hours salavating over the Autotuned deliciousness that was "A Glorious Dawn- Cosmos remixed" Get ready to get your jaws wet with yet another beautiful creation titled "Symphony of Science".

This time it features the likes of Richard Feynman, Degrassi Tyson, Bill Nye :), and of course, Carl.


Please, take a seat...

WHAT!

Forgive all the strikethrough a.k.a under-handed snarkiness BUT!

I just about puked when I saw these new Jean-Michel Basquiat Reebok joints. Since all good things must be capitilzed and choked until it is no longer breathing and/or valid eventually end up floating into mainstream media, I must say I'm quite pleased with the finished product. For those of you who were born in the south (kidding!) Under a rock, Basquiat was a brilliant 20th century Neo-expressionist artist from Brooklyn who passed away in the late 80s.

His work is:

A. Everything that could be found in my nightmares as a child. OR
B. Filed the encyclopedia under "Is that called art or being bat-shit crazy?"

That being said, I have a birthday coming up so, uh... hinty-hint-hint.

Winkers










Mother of god.

At least they picked appropriate music to accompany the video.

Monday

Let's talk about Kate Spade



I Normally skip the "lunching ladies" labels all together unless I happen to find a dusty, old vintage treasure, but...

Kate Spade's debut clothing line is darling!

I mean, I stopped for a peek on my way back from lunch. Maybe even fell in love with a shirtdress with smoking pink lips all over it.

All I'm sayin' is that if you happen to be making it rain, you should stop by and check it out.









(p.s I'm glad colored tights are sticking around.)

Never gets old

Oh, I am quite the curious kitten today!


marie lahmar

I'm loving Marie Lahmar's chaotic spin on the (usually) pristine art of fashion illustration. Her use of mixed media is impressive and I cannot wait to dig up more about her. A website with a link to purchase a print of 7 would be nice.

Grant Hamilton

The correlation between geometry and minimalism Grant Hamilton captures in this collection of Polaroids is so stimulating and yet, strangely tranquil.

Enjoy.

Thanks, booooooom!

One Word.

He turned to me and said, " little rabbit, there is no need to fear the monsters that lurk around the corner, for they aren't any worse than the ones you have already created."




Besides, It's all just smoke and mirrors, anyway...

Science moment

Ladies and Gentleman, It is with great honor that I present to you...

The Dumbo Octopus!




Dumbo octopus
Family Opisthoteuthidae

These charming deep sea octopus get their common name from their paired fins that look like elephant ears. They are found to considerable depths - one was sighted at 7,000m, the deepest depth of any cephalopod.

Watching the Dumbo Octopus swim is like watching a bird crossed with a pac-man ghost. It flaps its wings instead of jets around like it’s blue water cousins. It also has unnervingly human eyes, complete with what appears to be pink eye lids, whites, and irises. Their familiar eye just adds to their oddness though, as there is nothing else familiar about their face, and you can’t figure out which end is the front.


Fun fact: Unlike most of it's benthic brethren, The Dumbo Octopus swallows its prey whole.

Status: Extremely rare, and mostly misunderstood but not endangered.

The great divide

Sometimes I wonder what it's like on the other side. I have chosen a path that revolves around my creative (and very vain) interests, such as beauty and art. I couldn't imagine living a very happy existence without being surrounded by such things at all times. But lately, and especially last night, I have been looking more into the other side of me. For the longest time I have had a constant battle with myself on whether or not to go back to school. I want to go, I yearn to immerse myself in knowledge and spend hours pouring over textbooks dedicated to things that stimulate my brain. Yet the other side of me, who is as stubborn as the day is long, tells me it's just not worth it, that I am happy being my own boss, and living, (for lack of better term) this "Bohemian" lifestyle.


Something that I feel like only a few people (stefanie) know about me is that I'm also freakishly obsessed with two other things: animals and tearing apart a person's psyche. I love animals. I love observing animals and studying their behavior because I believe that when we study them in their natural habitat, doing what seems to be silly animal things, that we are really studying ourselves, in the purest form.

With that being said, and with almost as much enthusiasm, I love studying people. Anthropology. History. Psychology. Why we do certain things/ why we feel certain things/how we react/what makes us tick/where we came from/evolution (that ultimately ties my two passions together)// and basically everything outside, around, and in between. If you know me, I always have some grand explanation of human behavior for you that probably just makes me sound like a cynical bitch. Well, no one said it better than *cringe* the bloodhound gang, "You and me baby ain't nothin' but mammals...


You know the rest.

Wednesday

OMFG




I think my head just exploded.

Sigh

This weather makes me so unproductive. I just want to lay in bed and listen to music and daydream. Too bad I don't have minions to do my bidding. But at least I have these amazing photographs. If anyone knows who did them, please let me know. I'll just be here, in my bed, daydreaming that I was roaming through those forests...



Tuesday

Wednesday

Opposite day

I've been eating very healthy for the last couple of months. I figure since I'm not quitting smoking anytime soon, I might as well take care of the rest of my body. This is normally a great thing for a girls figure. No greasy food or high fructose corn syrup is a sure fire way to look fit for the summer. The only problem is that I barely had anything on my bones to begin with. Now I look like Mary-Kate Olsen.


Should I be happy that in order to look good I should continue eating double bacon cheeseburgers?
What a cruel, cruel twist of the rules.


:(

Friday

An open letter to Mariah Carey
