Trompe L’Oeil Threads

Would you believe it if I told you these articles of clothing were actually made of wood? Get ready to have your mind blown. Artist Ron Isaacs constructs these vintage clothing and plant material reliefs out of Finnish birch plywood and then finishes them with acrylic paint. How he is able to give such a hard material so much soft and natural movement is beyond me. Honestly, amazing!

Ombré Stone Bracelet

As we’re approaching HonestlyWTF’s four year anniversary, I’m reminded of the original inspiration behind the countless tutorials we’ve done over the years. I was originally motivated to share all tips and tricks I had accumulated over the years as a jewelry and accessories designer – to show you that you can do it yourself. What may seem difficult, tedious and complicated is actually relatively straightforward with the right resources. This ombré gemstone bracelet is the perfect example. Hope you enjoy it and most of all, I hope you’ll attempt to make it!

Outdoor Living

The one thing that sold us on our new house was the sizable backyard. It wasn’t in the best shape at the time but it had a spectacular oak tree and mature redwood, which is all we needed as jumpstart to our outdoor project. And now with the summer months quickly approaching, it’s time to put this project into high gear. Here’s a roundup of some outdoor spaces I’m drawing inspiration from. Stay tuned for updates on our progress!

Kule Fall 2014

Ok, is Nikki Kule just killing it or what? Just as I was reveling in this beautiful spring weather, I’m finding myself already jumping ahead of myself, looking longingly to fall, thanks to Kule’s super chic sophomore collection. I’m taking notes from each and every single look – a pinstripe and plaid peplum blouse over skinny heather grey trousers, accessorized with striped fur collar and a pair of saddle tan loafers? Can’t wait. Super soft drawstring pants tucked into striped socks and ankle high booties? Done.
