to Abby Milly for sending in this awesome DIY’d tote she made “designer” with a magic marker!  not only is it super on trend, it also is a great way to spruce up an average tote bag!  Congrats Abby, thanks for submitting your DIY and i will see you tomorrow on the Green Carpet at Origins Rocks Earth Month!

and thanks to everyone else for participating!  there were some really great entries! xoc

i hate to see you go but i love to watch you leave

so in keeping with the theme of the day — cray-cray fashion coming from friends, my super rad friend Glendon Romett just sent me this amazing pants video. yes, you read that right, pants video. faves are the weird animal head on the white jeans and second place goes to the quacking ducks. i especially love the techno mix and just like the rando running shoe platform stilletos from my last post, if you really wanted, i guess you could DIY the shiz outta these guys too. thanks Glendon!

and check out Glendon’s superfantastic band Primitive Noyes you can download their album for free, right from the website. YAY FREE!

now i’m off to Stand Up for Peace charity event which i am very excited about! we’ll be seeing Wyatt Cenac, Jenny Slate and a bunch of other comedians as well. Should be really fun, and we’ll be attending the after party too so if there are good photos, you know they’ll be posted! i hope you also have a lovely evening!

New Earrings!

check out these earrings i just made inspired by earring Isabella Laughland wore – I loved them so much that i decided to do a DIY and contest for The Frisky which you can check out here. Since i made them tho i have been so excited to play on this theme. i am already using very different materials and techniques and i have plans, my friend, plans for them!

nylon, chain and pearl leaf like earrings… when hanging still they remind me of the brugmansia flowers that grow outside of my aunts apartment in west hollywood and when you move the fabric flutters in the most beautiful way. i plan on continuing to play with opacity and a lot more with length — yay-excited

and if you want to try to win them just check out the DIY slideshow, you can find the deets there!
