All that jazz

with 3 comments

I have two left feet and I cannot dance to save my life.

BUT, I love jazz shoes AND industrial zippers.  So now I want these.

Pretty in pink

with 2 comments

I’m not big on pink.

Okay, okay…on occasion, I’ll admit, I do like it – as long as it’s the right shade (e.g., close to nude).

So when I stumbled upon this Comme des Garçons SHIRT item on the Colette eShop, the leather bag, well, tickled me…erm, PINK!

Had I not parted with my precious few greenbacks at Comme des Garçons BLACK the other day to get me one of these:

you can betcha bottom dollar Pinky up there would have been making its way to me by now.

Snag it online, or if you’re in the area, swing by good ol’ Colette at Rue Saint-Honoré.  For €180 (VAT included, €150.50 VAT excluded), this baby can be yours.

Limited edition of 30 copies.  Available in python and crocodile.

Button up

with one comment

This one’s for my buddy, Tin and all you fashion fiends out there.

Kinda late (since Spring is almost over).  I know.  But thought it would be nice to share since it looks pretty/dainty/girly/fashion-y and all that.

This lovely vintage-looking desktop wallpaper version/interpretation of this year’s Pantone Spring colors by photographer+artist Shanon Gass can be downloaded via Kindred.  Also available for $20 as a print on Etsy.
