Alternative Apparel

I am loving the Alternative Apparel SS11 line and look book.
Great photos of perfectly thin, worn in, almost rustic pieces.

wall to wall

I was in a major pinch yesterday- having a big shoot the morning after a giant snow storm is a great recipe for disaster. We really wanted to wallpaper some set walls, but sadly the rolls I had ordered were stuck in Kentucky due to the snow. Second hand rose saved the day. They stock hundreds of fantastic vintage patterned wallpaper. And seriously, after having looked at wallpaper patterns for a week straight, there is something so refreshing about the scale and colors of these papers. At first glance they might look super granny, but when paired with more modern furniture or accessories they are brilliant. Here are some lovely patterns. I would die to wallpaper my kitchen in the chinoiserie!

Blow Your Mind

At first glance, this image could be a million little sparkling gems.
But they're galaxies.
And I just got all BSG-Sci-Fi on your asses.

Eye Spy

Did a little blog recon recently and spotted this super hot eye makeup on my old Missbehave coworker, Allison Miller's, blog. She's a stylist and worked with makeup artist Nicole Heffron on this shoot for Joey magazine:

It's an intense look, but I'm feeling the thick, black, three-quarter liner smudged out into a cat-eye. Meow!

Danger's Ahead

The internet is scary place...especially, when we spend all day trolling the ethers in search of beautiful things. Recently, I came across the most amazing collection of obsession-worthy jewels from Erstwhile Jewelry. Owner J.S. Klusner scours the globe for rare one-of-a-kind pieces everything from 9th century Victorian, turn of the century Edwardian, French Art Nouveau & Deco, and 40s retro. Find his coveting pieces online or by appointment only here.

I'm seeing signs

I love checking out the home grown webstore Three Potato Four, and these 70s astrological mugs are great gifts for friends:

The question is, will you go by the new astrological chart (the one that adds the 13th sign, Ophiuchus) or the original? I personally would be happy to change from a Scorpio to a Libra, what about you?

an unlikely source

Shoe shopping at the Gap? Yes.  Are they on their way to becoming shoe force to be reckoned with? could be, because these are CUTE!
