The future already happened?!! What do you mean…

1-suzy-menkes-albanese-vogue-25jul14-sm_b_1440x960

There are two fashion journalists I read, their names would be Cathy Horyn and Suzy Menkes. Cathy Horyn is my favorite because she is the only Alpha at New York Beta Times: a paper where you get the feeling that they want to give you the red pill, but can’t handle the consequences. Cathy Horyn […]

Chunky solid boat stone necklaces ….

IMG_8680

This chunky v-shape necklace format has been on my mind as of late. Not because it has been a trend for a while, we all know about those candy coated overpriced Shourouks, Tom Binns, and any other designer who has been slinging this bib format. I don’t follow trends. I choose to go in when […]

Stacking it from scratch …

9e81d80c7f203bd0f4fbc0c448b5c10f

I think this idea of doing this “bracelet” stack is so cheeseball. But in case you want to do it yourself, here is the instructional. Despite the stacking look being so 2005 in my opinion, this one actually looks enticing.

Cold creek brewing …

il_fullxfull.310862470

I found these set of wooden products by COLD CREEK BREWING…Usually I like things to look hi-tech and re-dubbed for something more futuristic but it’s fine, I’m obsessed enough with this catalogue to share it here. I initially saw this 90 degree wine rack floating on top of a doorway and I thought it looked […]

Intellectual Property in the Fashion Industry

Screen shot 2014-07-19 at 12.25.17 PM

If you’re anything like me, growing up as a young kid watching Casino left a huge impression on you. I dreamt about being Robert Deniro. I saw my mother the same way, that she never worked for money. She worked to have power. She always said, the day you leave is the day they are […]

Makeup Stand, another suggestion…

IMG_3065

Okay, so you have your essential collection of makeup..personal to you, authentic to your facial shape and unique features. Yada Yada. You can tell a lot about me from my selection. I love mascara, I choose to go matte on eye shadow, I love a smokey eye, and I love to get dolled up. Lately […]

Mobile Bar Cart

IMG_3654

I start this post, again, with my uncontrollable urge to defend myself against the pitiable man, the restauranteur who, a while ago, called me Lazy. He also said, via instagram, that I “fend off wood”. His next few instagram snaps? A photo of his dumb Miami treehouse being built. He casually says “Dreams come true” […]

USB CUFFLINKS

I need these. Right now. What do you think? Super geeky though. To the girl Sarah who just left a comment about whether or not my beauty post was a parody. It wasn’t. I was being genuine. ;)

Flask Bangle

I too would have been confused by the title of this post. Yep, it’s a flask and a bangle designed by Cynthia Rowley. On the e-commerce site, there is one simple sentence to describe the product. Necessity is the mother of invention….Via.

iPhone 5 Purses

DSC_0941

If you can remember a while ago I designed those iPhone wallet necklaces…and now it was time for a purse that could fit the iPhone 5, plus a little wiggle room. Meaning you can fit more stuff in there, and wear it as a purse. You can see the older iPhone 4 bags, and visually […]

LXR Keychains

DSC_0379

For the holidays, some considered keychains…Last december, I never really thought about what would make for reasonable gifts, but this year I wanted to focus on small items that everyone can play with. I should have posted this weeks ago but the hectic holidays have really set me back! This envelope purse is derivative of […]

Caviar Purse

(Image via Vault Magazine) The minute I think of the words Caviar Purse, I think of food, you know those Beggar’s purses…little pouches with caviar and creme fraiche, ingredients that are classic components to serving caviar…Olympia Le Tan has just created the perfect holiday gift with these bags by using conventional graphics featured on caviar […]

Christmas wishes…

Photo above features Camo leather lunchbox bag by Logan Zane, and the new Samsung Galaxy Camera phone. Did you know recently I lost my phone, was really torn up about that, it was the iPhone 4 and so I was forced to make a decision. Get the iPhone 4 again (a new one that insurance […]

Monday off, scarves on

DSC_0090

Yesterday, Monday, for a while had been DYING to check out Dia:BEACON. Finally I had been able to coordinate a date…and I am going to go back next weekend or the weekend after. But while I was there I just also thought I’d kill two birds. You haven’t had a chance to see the rest […]

Tube Scarves

DSC_0251

My excuse for posting the last set without any styling or modeling them was quite simple. I love being behind the camera, I cringe every time I have to get in front of one, when you work with one of your friends, or even a stranger .. or a family member…who is willing to take […]

Leather Scarf

DSC_0122

I’m still on the hunt for concise ways to style for fall. And my focus is now around the neck. I knew that a leather scarf would be a necessity for my wardrobe, but design wise I had to come up with a concept. In my last post, someone left a comment about how the […]

Black Crocodile

DSC_0425

This updated design is another spinoff on those crocodile bags, remember those? When I went to Staples for inspiration? Well this time I had to go all black on black on black, with those crocodile style wallet necklaces… Now I had to follow a similar design strategy to that same post, to treat this crocodile […]

Fall Styling Notes

DSC_0169

I don’t know about you but I’m very excited for fall. But knowing our current erratic weather, I feel like we might not even have a fall, we’ll just cut straight to winter. Anyway, this time around I made a few changes to a classic fall uniform that I can’t wait to do everyday. The […]

Earphone Rec (AIAIAI TMA-1)

DSC_0096

So now just a quick post on earphones, answering those who’ve e-mailed me for recommendations. I started getting earphone questions as soon as I posted Muji headphones a while ago… Black matte everything. Oh except for my iphone. A couple of my friends and readers asked which earphones they should buy for excellent sound quality. […]

Netted & Pleated

DSC_0432

Took the liberty of taking a pleated knee length skirt and just wearing it as a mini dress. The nice thing about this harness is that it gives the dress straps and an empire silhouette which I really like. Just for the sake of harnessing a lumpy tent shape… Unfortunately this Luxirare cage purse below […]
