oh and ps: i'm officially a big fan of chris heads.

bye bye phi

i just found out that after 7 years of business, phi is closing its doors.

i had the opportunity to visit their store in soho when i was in new york last february. having seen the collection first hand, i can truly say that it's rather unfortunate to see such a unique brand come to its demise. the last shipment of goods with be of their pre-spring 2010 collection in the next month. read more here.

here are some of my favourite pieces of the spring 2009 collection that i saw in the boutique last february.

rings n things

i am a big ring fan, though i own a very limited selection, myself. there are so many neat rings out there now, each more innovating and strange than the next. here are some images of rings that i thought were the most unique.

so i can't believe i only just discovered this site.

looklet let's you choose from a variety of models and gives you hundreds of garments, accessories and shoes to style her with. finally you get to choose a background and even a photo filter to put on your image! they even give you options of whether you want the bustier over or under the blouse, the blouse tucked in or out of the pants and the pants tucked in or out of the wedges. here are my first few looks...

seeing red

when asked what to buy with a $20 fashion budget, anna wintour told david letterman, "well, you could buy a lipstick."

i couldn't agree more. nothing really completes an outfit like a good lipstick. my personal favourite? m.a.c.'s russian red.

more, more, mohr!

cole mohr is my favourite male model.

night in

recipe for the best evening alone ever:
  • bubble bath
  • tea candles
  • red wine
  • the xx
may sound sightly cliche, but mark my words - it's the best.

under cover

here are two songs that i love and covers of them that i also love. rarely do musicians make successful covers, but lissy and josé have done something right.

campbell vs. wang

jeffrey campbell's morrow bootie

alexander wang's hanne triple buckle boots

wang's are obviously way nicer, but i don't have the pocket money... on the bright side, the j.c. one's have very camilla skovgaard-esque soles, which i like!

the universe and stuff

"the universe is infinite, so you'll never get bored."

i have yet to discover this, but a mentally challenged/homeless (?) man on the streetcar seems to believe it.

he also was preaching, "the doctors say to play with yourself. family doctors, medical doctors... they all say it: if you're horny, play with yourself." and proceeded to explain that the first step to cook a chicken is stroking the blade.

suddenly his profound statement on the universe didn't seem so profound.

i'm really excelling in my classes this year.

for those of you to whom i've claimed to be "too busy to hangout" with (a.k.a. everyone), it's because i've been hard at work making darling illustrations such as these.
