So it's that time of year again. Out with the exposed underbutt and in with pumpkin-infused everything and my favorite textile of all time: leather. With a legacy of hollywood's ass-kicking, catsuit-clad babes behind you, leather has the capacity to transform even the most feminine shapes into pieces that say "I know you want to, but don't even try" (and by leather I am also including pleather and latex because saving money and cows is cool. Also: ... Read More
The inherent excellence of miniaturized items cannot be denied (by me). From tiny gummy hamburgers to model cars/planes/cities to handbag-sized dogs, there is something tiny out there to evoke irrational delight in everyone. Over at the Twig Terrariums, talented creators Michelle Inciarrano and Katy Maslow take things a step further by creating adorable, glass-encased ecosystems and sending tiny figurines on adventures inside them. Just too cute. They remind me of ... Read More
Over at BUST, we love dynamic lady duos. Blooming from the creative forces of Garnet Griebel and Katie Miller is Scarlett Garnet Jewelry, an art nouveau line created under unconventional circumstances. The two met online in 2006, while Katie resided in Charleston, SC, and Garnet in Kansas City, MO, and after a year of communicating via email, Scarlett Garnet was born. The two create an exceptionally cohesive and imaginative line from disparate cities, fusing the ... Read More

When it comes to handcrafted anything, a good background story goes a long way. When budgets and access force us to choose mass produced items, the intricacy and personality that comes through in a piece that has been labored over by another's hands can speak volumes. Such is the case with the designing duo behind jewelry line CaraCruz.  Jimena is the yin to Tania's yang. CaraCruz, in Spanish, meaning HeadsTails. Two transplants from small Argentinian ...

Pin-Up Dino Revelation Holidays and special occasions are all about rituals and established expectations. Associated terms do not include morbid imagery, giant insects, extraterrestrials, and flipping the bird. Which is exactly why I'll be hitting up Unusual Cards for my holiday notes. With a focus on the holy trinity of pinup girls, dinosaurs and whiskey, Unusual Cards creates modern camp art by pairing disparate wholesome images that together are completely ... Read More
So they say the best things in life are free. While I love me some sunsets, nature, and friendship, I'd argue that the other best things in life are unnecessary. The farther a delightful item or experience is from assisting in my general survival, the more I like it (think hammocks, cronuts, leather pants, blowouts). Like marshmallows and condiments, there's something magical about the fusion of two concepts that generally don't belong together, which is why ... Read More
There are few things I love more than household items that have the capacity to arouse confusion and discomfort in unsuspecting guests (taxidermy animals and memorial pet portraits, anyone?). Which is why the bizarre intergalactic creatures of MadKnits bring me immense joy. Born from the creative mind and talented hand of Kaitlin Juarez, these fabric monsters hail from Providence, RI. They are hand-stitched, one-of-a-kind, and expertly detailed. MadKnits are ... Read More
