Check out this cool digital art from British artist Nikki Farquharson. I love when fashion and art collide to make something trippy (I’m not a hippie)  and beautiful. Blending real life with sketched art is always cool. Don’t you wish you had long hair like in the second photo? I would totally whip it around and smack people in the face with it. Anyway, enjoy the photos and explore her website with a section of Modern Proverbs that are sort of entertaining.For a lighter read, go here. That being said , excuse me while I look for thigh high tube socks.

Not sure if this is just a prototype, but Chanel showed this plexiglass briefcase during their Fall 2010 shows. I really love this, except what do you do if you have to hide tampons or pads? Or what if you’re an office clepto and swipe a stapler or two from the office? What if you don’t want people to see your prescription of Valtrex?? So many ifs!! I do like that each compartment is meant for something specific like an iPod (Karl needs to make a luggage for all his 40 iPods) or lipstick. Of course, there’s no compartment for delicious snacks like Whatchamcallit! Figures.  I still want one.

Galliano has done it again! I love horses and horseback riding and stuff and this collection totally reflects on the old-timey times of horseback riding. Let me put it more eloquently and not like I’m smacking gum bubbles (it’s cherry flavored) while twirling my hair. Galliano delivers a classic clean collection with feminine frocks and horseback riding ensembles from the turn of the prior century and 1930s. So, yeah, I’d totally wear this. Anyway, I have been horseback riding several times in my life and I LOVE it. I do have to say the first time I went, I wore high heels (please don’t laugh). I didn’t know you can really hurt a horse with high heels. Let’s just say the horse owner was giving me the side-eye the whole time. Anyway, Galliano rules!

Here are a few Hello Kitty stuff that maybe your dream or your nightmare depending on who you are. Hello Kitty Wine and Hello Kitty Anatomy. Let’s start with the Skeletal Hello Kitty: I was wondering why Hello Kitty has no mouth but has teeth. Take a minute to ponder this. I have already put that as my screensaver, creeping out my 4 year old. The Hello Kitty Wine is something I can appreciate but can’t really enjoy because I don’t drink. I would be perfectly happy if it was filled with a Shirley Temple cocktail (because I’m hardcore like that). But, it is pretty cute, nonetheless. Having said that Mimi has probably ordered 50 of each kind right now. You’ll know if she’s got the Hello Kitty hangover – it’s a glittery haze of pink bows and hearts. Actually, I may try it!

Now I know what to do with my duvet that has cat piss stains on it -Dye it an inconspicuous grey-ish brown color and wrap it around me. This totally beats wearing pajamas in public. You can always count on Rick Owens to whip out the goth with a touch of WTF. The dramatic eye makeup reminds me of when I used to wear dramatic eye makeup at Newport Creamery. In case you have no idea what Newport Creamery is, basically it’s an ice cream parlor and diner in New England and yes, I was a waitress during my youth there. I used to scare customers (mostly elderly) with my makeup since we all had to wear uniforms. I had to channel my style through something! And so I chose my makeup. By the end of the shift, my eye makeup was smudged down my cheeks from the manual labor of scooping ice cream and greasy air. Anyway, there’s a duvet DIY in here somewhere!

Check out this Munchausen LEGO Kitchen! It’s fantastic if you really really love Legos. So, this table is just a regular Ikea table with over 20,000 legos on it. I can just imagine grime getting into the crevices of the legos. It could end up being really gross, especially if you’re making fish or chicken or something. It could be a haven for salmonella. I’m sorry, I have a germ phobia and it’s showing through right now. Ignore me. Anyway, check out the video below to see how its done. If the video was going in real time, it would be like watching grass grow. But, thankfully, they sped it up. This would be a great DIY project for a kid’s room.

British designer Rachel Freire designed these fantastic corset, undergarment, football inspired outfits. I am completely in love with all of them. I love that nude color and the garters the best. That last photo of the extra long corset sort of looks like a venus fly trap devouring your upper body. Hawt. It looks like it could be claustrophobic. I like how Rachel gave thought to the crotch zipper in the nude bodysuit (third photo). I mean, the worst part of wearing a bodysuit is going to the damn bathroom. So back in the day, I used to be in a punk band called The L.U.V.’s (I went by ‘Roxy Lady’, naturally) and I wore a latex hot pink bodysuit on stage. I had to go the bathroom so bad after the show. I had to take the whole bodysuit off, which took a good 15 minutes. Try doing that in a NASTY nightclub bathroom. Anyway, long story short, crotch zippers are a ‘good thing’ as Martha would say.
