Kate Spade and What We’ve Learned in The Era of Fun Fashion

I think fashion for a long time has limited itself to either things that are so ridiculous and uncomfortable that you can't actually wear or use them, or things that are boring and bland in the name of "chic". Personally, I find boring to look a little cheap, like all the other mass produced products … Continue reading Kate Spade and What We’ve Learned in The Era of Fun Fashion

Kick The Junky Cheap Clothes to The Curb and Learn How To Invest In Clothes That Will Last

Expensive clothes in the US aren't high quality.

Monster in The Closet

I thought you might want a break from the constant art based posts, so we can move onto interiors now. A specific interior, in fact. We are talking about the bane of my life here.

St. Patrick`s Day Nails

Tomorrow is St. Patrick`s Day! So, in a mixture of nostalgia for February and love for a joyfully pointless holiday, I created this nail design.   Trace a heart on a dried out pencil eraser, and use an x-acto knife to cut away the excess.
