Carine Brancowitz

Je. Love. Carine Brancowitz! - Her pen drawings make me swoon. I'd seen the Sebastien Tellier album cover art previously, and looked her up when I found out she was the talent behind the graphics of "Kilometer". Her website is a giant online gallery of her work (WARNING: beware of the procrastination effect the website may have on you) - so I chose my favorites to post below. Enjoy!

Song of the day: Sebastien Tellier - Kilometer (sweet video, too)

Mr. Oizo

Flat Eric is back in this new short entitled "Where's the money George?" by Mr. Oizo feat. Pharell - short and sweet.
It definitely feels like a teaser for something great to come - a single? an album perhaps? I certainly hope so...


Song of the day: Mr. Oizo - Flat Beat (watch the video feat. Flat Eric!)

I should've known...

For all of you Scrubs fans out there... I should've known that Dave Franco was James' brother! They're both gorgeous and talented and hilarious and dress like gods - no big deal. Gucci should ditch the mono-Franco and have a duo-brother campaign!

P.S. I'm a gigantor fan of the slightly open biker boot on boys...

Here are some of the photos from Dave's Death & Taxes shoot by Julia Galdo:

For your enjoyment: A little bit of James...

Dream Life

Alexander McQueen

Demi Moore's cover shoot for Harper's Bazaar entitled Demi Moore's Dream Life.

I would die to meet a giraffe in similar circumstances as the above photo. I positively adore these photos - dreamy! (And the dresses aren't too shabby, either).

Tom Shannon

Tom Shannon is an American artist who combines science and art to create some exquisitely unique sculptures and paintings. I'm a fan.

I also watched the TED video/interview in which he describes his invention that created the above and below: the pendulum. It's a giant rotating metal rod with paint at the bottom that is mechanically engineered to dispense specific amounts of different color paints at the touch of a button. It creates these intricate circular patterns that collide in the most interesting of ways. From far away, the circles overlap seamlessly. Close up, however, is the Monet-effect - they are drops of multicolor paint that flow around eachother randomly but somehow together. Tom Shannon explains in the video that these seemingly random drops frequently resemble the shapes of several animals and other recognizable imagery, to which he concludes that perhaps there are parts of these designs that could predict future discoveries. I find these paintings to be striking from both far away and up close - and what an ingenius way to create that! Science and art coexisting together, recipe for success (sometimes...).

A Bevy of Big Bows

Marc by Marc Jacobs.

I remembered them when I saw the runway show playing on the screens at Bloomingdale's uptown.

Such an adorable trend - one that's surely making its way over to S/S 2010.
I'm sensing a DIY...

Song of the day: Feadz - Numanoid

I'm aware that I'm a little tardy for the party on this one, but I just must say how much I adore these Alexander McQueen 2010 "steampunk" heels. The industrial metal adornments play with the either super tough or super girly parts of the shoe, making for perhaps the only actually wearable footwear of the Spring 2010 collection. (Click the link to see the other crazy creations for your feet). I especially like the ballerina ones at the bottom of this post. Tres good girl gone bad - these would've been perfect for a character in the Fifth Element or something - futuristic yet current. Love it!

Is it weird that I want one?

An Indian Headdress.

I'm talking straight authentic, real feathers, like my name starts with the word "little", right out of the Village People, headdress.

I'm not sure why. I want one - I want to wear it out, to parties and events where no particular dress code has been assigned, where I can be out of the norm and in with the awesome. I think you get my meaning.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Green man! (Charlie from "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia")

I'm sorry, sir, but your 1/48th Irish-ness does NOT make me want to kiss you.

I hate to sound like Debbie O'Downer but sometimes I think St. Paddy's day celebrators can take the festivities a little too far. The dressing in green is legit (especially considering the fact that you can potentially get some pretty sweet deals on drinks if you're decked out in green). I do enjoy and am thoroughly entertained by the fact that some go a little crazy overboard with this (I'm talking full-on green Guido velour tracksuit complete with beads and head wear - hilarious). My main issue here, though, is how do all these people get out of work? It felt like everyone was out today, clad in green and drunk as hell! I was stuck inside at a desk while green groups paraded the streets of Manhattan, chanting incoherent nothings for the sake of making noise. It sounded oh-so-fun! Unfortunately, I did see a couple overly-inebriated St. Patrick's day enthusiasts regurgitating green beer a little too early for my personal well-being (which is too early all the time, really). However, apart from a couple buffoons who decided to offer something involving good luck and a metaphorical shamrock, it seems everyone was enjoying themselves (and the beautiful weather we've been having (finally!)).

Here are a few images that make me green with envy! (I just had to do it).



Stay safe, drink responsibly and enjoy!

Bringin' Sexy Back

Kimberly Ovitz dress

I'm so into backless or cut out backs - I find the back to be one of the sexiest parts of the female body. I'm planning on making a couple shirts to test out some different styles but, in the meantime, here are some examples of what I'm talking about. So subtly sexy and in no way too promiscuous.

Just a tad of sultry.

and the last, a shirt I made in honor of mah guurl Anne-Camille for her 21st birthday!
