Zipper Belt

IMG_8370

If you’ve noticed nearly all of my things are designed quite literally for myself, the mental process behind how things are created goes like “I want this, it’s not available anywhere else.” More stream of consciousness…”Designs just for people like me…”. I am contradicting myself a bit here because in the past 5 years I’ve […]

Western Clutch

IMG_9511

I brought these older designs back, except this time expanded on production. Experimenting with patchwork, each of these bags are same, but a little bit different. This purse uses new and vintage leather pieces for a real “worn in” vibe. Much of the process is slow, as lining is hand sewn. The chain stitches were […]

No-brand effect …

0202599003_1_100020

If you’re like me this fall, you crave a “fashionable” look with sort of a blank stare. A black accessory that carries with it no stamps or re-appropriation of a current runway trend. Here are some items, I think, may or may not make the “must have” cut. If you’ve ever heard of “stories.com”, it’s […]

Curated Pin Board

IMG_7193

A lot of people have asked me what happened to my instagram. I don’t know really, and I don’t have much time to care. What I do know is that I’m very happy it’s private now, if you want clues on what I will be posting next on this blog then you can request me. […]

If you followed me on gram you’d know that I’ve had Pinterest for years …. I don’t use it for popularity just a place to keep my thoughts pinned down for inspiration …. My boards on Pinterest are private too … I’m very forgetful … Right now I use instagram the same way … It’s […]

If you were following me on instagram don’t worry I have not blocked you … Instagram has deleted my account … Shortly there after I started a new one called luxirare dot com and did nothing but post pics of jewelry …. That was deleted about 10 minutes later … I’m 100% ok with not […]

Visual explanations by Edward Tufte

IMG_2736

If you’re a designer or artist you should definitely buy this book. My favorite section is the history of music part. I love this organic graph that swiftly explains the single source of music that inspired and diversified into so many branches. Starting in early 1940′s and 50′s, we needed this rock music that originated […]

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 […]

Looking forward to 2013!

DSC_0575_2

This was a weird year for me, fun, but weird. And I always prefer the New Years time over Christmas, only because New Years gives you another clean slate. And Christmas is a great break time for me, I like to relax and take some time off from work..it’s been kind of nice to stay […]

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 […]

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 […]

Fall Scarves, 2012

intro

I like doing a series of designs, maybe because…well..how can you just stop at 1 idea when you have 4-5? And there’s the issue of colors, you know I’m quite the colorblind designer, I only see black and white most of the time. Well anyway, I initially wanted to show that triangle scarf first because […]

Going Purse-less

IMG_4180

Recently I’ve noticed a surge of women not taking to purses, leaving more at home, and only bringing essentials. You may think the items in my photo below are my essentials. They are not actually. Or the cigarette box and lipstick are not, haha. The box and lipstick are shipping necessities for the Motovest. As […]

Wine & Scrape

IMG_4120

Didn’t feel like taking out my cheese board last night….And I’m this close to drinking wine out of solo cups (not like I haven’t done it before) but I’m scared I might offend some readers… I have this cheese wheel that I’ve used before. It sits inside my fridge, wrapped in a garbage bag. Whenever […]

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 […]

Modern Wedding Ideas

IMG_4016

My mother and I text quite often, now it’s gotten to the point where she sends me pics of food all day long. (ANNOYING, mom)…but then she also sends me pics of cool things too. She recently went to her friend’s daughter’s wedding, and they had a modern setup. My mom of course immediately sent […]

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 […]
