Red Bull.

Does anyone remember those Red Bull commercials from maybe five or six years ago? The ones with that little dude and their tag line was " Red Bull gives you wiings!" I always thought they were funny but the point of this was because I was looking at Jak&Jil  and I saw these shoes.
Don't these shoes just yell Red Bull. I don't think I would ever wear these, they are a little weird for me but you never know. What about you? Are you a Red Bull person? Would you wear these? You wouldn't be able fly but you can think you can....
Happy Wednesday.

Hello, hello. How is everyone? Today's topic is Etsy. What do you think of it? As I shop more and more on there I am coming to think of it as a crafty ebay. Today I was browsing and I saw these lace fingerless gloves.
I thought how cool. At first I thought she made them out of old lace and then after flipping through the pictures I realized she had knit them. I mean I find something to buy on there every time I look but then I see people who post things they found at an estate sale or a thrift store. I mean I understand that if you don't sell it, it will become part of your collection, when someone else would enjoy it more. I guess it is a different form of ebay it is just geared to a certain demographic. What do you think? Are you an Etsy shopper or seller? Have a great rest of the week.

Leather again...

Remember my post last week about Skin Graft, well this week I was looking on the Barney's website and then I saw this in the top section.
This is a Givenchy harness top, it's $680 for one size. It seems that you tie it in the front so it is adjustable for your size but I don't think it's made for everyone. It is definitely not in  my budget, if it was I would so buy this. I think this would go great with anything that Skin Graft makes. I guess you can tell I love leather. What about you? Are you an animal right's person and don't want to harm the cows or are youa leather lover too?

If you are in LA and Givenchy is in your price point, Barney's is having a trunk show Tuesday April 12-13 in Beverly Hills. I don't kniow if there is a specific time but call them and see. This seems like it would fun if I had the time to go, so if anyone goes comeback and comment, let me know how it is.

Happy Wednesday.

Skin Graft

Hello Readers,
I hope everyone is doing well, today is a harness kind of day. Has anyone heard of Skin Graft? I first saw them at Pool Trade Show about three years ago and I thought how cool. Here's a pic:
I have this bag in canvas, I love it. It is great for concerts and when I go out because then I don't have to worry about my bag and it looks great. Skin Graft opened in May of 2008 and it looks like they are getting more popular. They specialize in leather and this season they seem to be focusing on knits also. Here is another bag that looks great with a motorcycle jacket and boots.
His jacket also goes well with that bag. I have been seeing more people wear their stuff and I think they haave a kind steampunk feel to some of there stuff. What do you think? Love it, hate it, I don't know.... Happe Wednesday.

Back to our normal broadcasting schedule....

Hello, hello. I am going back to my normal blogging of accessories. You know how I love them and I also love Jak&Jil's blog and as I was cruising along looking for cool things I saw this picture:

I don't know about you but I love rings and these have a very medieval feel to them. I love how she matched her nails to the rings. I don't know who the designer is or whose hand this is but it speaks to me. I think of knights in shining in armor and all the different kinds of armor in the different kinds of metal. They are kind of gothic but they have a romantic feel to them. How do you think they would look in another color?  Maybe like an old copper, like the Statue of Liberty, I love that color and I think the rings in that color would be rad. What do you think? Like 'em, Love 'em or Hate 'em? Would you change the color if you could? Happy Wednesday.
