Runaway Hobo Stick

il_570xN.678261982_ry01

What in hobo hell is this?! This is a real item for sale on Etsy. It will only set you back $59…. it’s a ‘hobo bindle’ for the lady looking for a bit of transient flair in her wardrobe. Honestly, if a carry a bindle, it would be strictly for the stick. It would be an instant weapon for anyone deserving of a beat down. Any who, this exists and I don’t think it’s gonna happen as a fashion thing. Unless, Karl the Kaiser makes a Chanel one, which I would instantly buy!

Mother of Pearl Ships

Check out these awesome pearl ships by Ann Carrington. I wonder if she’s related to the most elegant Texan rose that ever was, Krystle. Any who, here’s her blah, blah, blah about how she got the idea to raid a drag queen’s closet to make a ship:

“I was inspired to make the galleons after watching a documentary about a factory in China which manufacturers every kind of conceivable pearl adornment in colossal quantities. I decided to make two Chinese sailing junks cruising on a tangled never ending sea of wedding tiaras, chokers and earrings!”

Pretty cool, huh? I’d hang this is my walk-in-closet.

Your Engagement’s Coming… What About The Ring?!

Your Engagement’s Coming… What About The Ring?!

 

The moment of your engagement is certainly one of the most exciting in your life; where will it take place, how will he do it? There are more than a million questions and thoughts racing through your mind, however the most important is surely, “what will my engagement ring look like?”

 

You simply never know until you’re in the moment, raw and in the clear. However, given at what an epic moment this is, one can’t help but ponder what shiny ring is going to present itself to you. All the fine details, the stones, the band… so many small counterparts to consider!

 

If you could, you would probably be like most and try your hardest to predict exactly what this important piece of jewellery looks like. And perhaps you can! How? Well, we say, just take a guess based on your man’s personality… there are many clues to be told!

 

Hopeless Romantic?

 

He likes the idea of tradition; the white picket fence, entering into a fabulous garden with the classic family dog, and the three kids to boot. This could very likely be what your man is waiting for in his future with you. He wants the romance and the happy ending (and hopefully, so do you!).

 

If this sounds like your guy, this is an easy one… expect the “a la classic”, the traditional diamond ring with the gold band. Is there anything more romantic?!

 

Art-sy Creative?

 

Looking “outside of the lines” is one way you could describe your soulmate; he likes things that are different, which take on a new approach, far from traditional. I guess you could say, he is the opposite of the Hopeless Romantic.

 

Given your mate’s craving for artistic pieces and things that don’t follow the beaten trail, you could expect exactly the same for your engagement ring. Steering away from the traditional diamond, perhaps he goes for a mixed gemstone ring with an engraved band, truly expressing his creative personality.

 

Showstopper?

 

Flash! Bling! Your guy is all about it. Everything he owns is likely ranked “the best”, whether that be his technology, clothes, car… he wants the best of everything and it has to SHINE. Chances are, you may be similar, so wouldn’t a flashy, statement-worthy engagement ring be in the cards? Likely!

 

Your man is definitely going to go all out, because that’s just the way he rolls! You can expect something big, maybe even a bespoke ring, with accompanying diamonds and gemstones to go with it. After all, he just can’t do without the flash!

 

Perfectionist?

 

From his organization in his home, his car, his work… everything is perfect, in place and in order. Your mutual plans together always follow a regimen of events, planned with the utmost precision. Your guy is a perfectionist, and you can surely bet one of his biggest decisions (you), will be perfect as well.

 

Given the desire, or more so the need, for things to be flawless is just in his nature, so what could that mean when making such a big decision? A fair guess, would be to say he may choose to do as many now do, and choose the ring together, with you. Is there a better way to ensure sublimity?

 

While there are many more options and guesses (endless!), at the end of the day, you just won’t know until the moment so pleasantly hits you. It’s a moment to be cherished, and for many more reasons than only your jewellery. Either way, the perfect person is your prize, at the end of the day, that’s your ultimate happy ending!

London- based designer Malgorzata Dudek designed this collection that reminds of a hard-shelled bug, sort of like a cockroach or beetle. I have no idea why! These are really really amazing! I’d wear it all! Dude, Where’s my dress?

Wearable Furniture

 

You-Can-Wear-This-Table-as-a-SkirtDesigner Hussein Chalayan designed a collection of wearable furniture called  Afterwords.  Check out the video of it in action, here. This is good news for lazy furniture movers. All they have to do is wear, walk and drop. IKEA is totally going to rip this off and call it “Flädvoolorfmjdhajkgns”…. or something like that. Then, every hipster is going to be strolling down the street in a damn table dress. Then, every street corner is going to be a full-fledged living room with hairy hipsters and with cans of Pabst beer brimming over! And we can have Hussein Chalayan to thank! Thanks, Hussein!

Here’s the 2015 cruise collection for Scientologists in the fashion- know…. Those gold and silver faces are not here to scare us straight under our beds, but to gently remind us that aliens get facials, too. It’s up to you what kind of facial- hahahahaha. I’ll stop.  Any who, here’s the latest from Rick Owens-post-penis-gate.

Knit Wit

kjaw15_1 kjaw15_2 kjaw15_4 kjaw15_6 kjaw15_7 kjaw15_10 kjaw15_12 kjaw15_13

Upcycled knitwear designer Katie Jones knitted a collection of witty knits that are sure to fit anyone that can sit and has a set of …. ____.(You fill in the blank!) A little tongue twister for ya… Any who, I love knitwear except I have to be careful it doesn’t make me look like a fat, granny, cat lady. I mean, I’m one third there already. I love how colorful these are , but they still actually remind me of those hideous macramé blankets from the 1970s. Hippies- creating FUG fashions for generations to come! Any who, I’m glad this collection leans more towards fun and twee, than hippie and FUG. Yay.
