I am loving turbans and can’t seem to get them out of my head. Perhaps its time to get them on my head, especially after seeing these photographs that Alexandra Valenti shot for Sisters of the Black Moon (purveyors of a fabulous ebay store full of vintage treasures).
How cool are these PVC bangles from Namibia? Made from recycled PVC pipe, which has been stripped from the ground and destined for the landfill, each piece is hand-carved and gets its coloring from the natural organic compounds that form on the inside of the pipes after years of transporting water. The process is innovative, unique and environmentally friendly!
We’ve been victims of some serious gloomy weather here lately (WTF!!!), which has me daydreaming about my favorite cold weather outerwear: ponchos and capes. This hooded cape from Topshop reminds me of some of the looks from Rag & Bone’s Fall 2010 collection, whose inspiration came from “crazy English guys who climbed Mount Everest in the twenties.” Sounds about right…
(Topshop Ponti Cape Coat $170)
Can you guess the designer behind all these awesome baubles? Give up?? I bet you would never guess they are from Chico’s and all under $35!
These handpainted silk scarves by Portland artist and designer Jason Kinney are delicate works of art. Inspired by Leonard Cohen and William Black, Kinney twists classical motifs into contemporary compositions. Frame them or wear them; either way, your friends will be wishing they had one too.
