Here are the latest clever and pretty artwork from Andrea Kett. Glamorous ghouls, candy, jewels, cakes, and a few bloody limbs here and there make for  fantastic Halloween decor. I love the tongue-in-cheek humor in all of Kett’s work. “Sorry to hear you’re feeling rotten” -hhahahahaha! That’s something Hannibal Lector would say- polite, with a tinge of manic. The colorful costumes and pouty killer ladies make it even better.  Click here to see my past post of Kett’s work.Visit her Etsy shop for more artwork  available in three sizes. Fabulous!

Happy Halloween!!! My most favorite holiday ever!! Make sure the treats keep coming and the tricks keep their STDs to themselves! Hahaha- the only day where you can take candy from strangers. Not right…. but oh sospecial!!

Fabrican has come up with a way to wear clothes without messing up  your hair and makeup… spray it on! Does this give “say it , don’t spray it ” a new meaning? Ummm.. I guess not, but this is a actually pretty cool considering there are ways you want to mold a fabric or get every nook and cranny of your body. I’m looking at you Elvis. This is pretty amazing, I mean the possibilities are endless- that means if you lose your luggage at the airport, you can spray on clothes for a few days! Babies will never outgrow their clothes- just spray on their onesie! Give your cat a sweater over his natural sweater….. Mr. Marmar just gave me the stank-eye. That means that shirtless crackhead can finally go into a 7-11 with a shirt! Homeless people can be clothed for pennies a day! You can ambush the husband before he puts on the FUG shirt that he seems to hold onto forever and ever.. anyway,  It’s virtually endless… Check out this clip below:

This season’s collection was a hodge-podge of great and terrible. The first photo with the face mask is pretty terrible… but the rest are not too bad. Especially, the taffeta heart-shaped tops – really unexpected and beautiful. The candy-striped dress is definitely something I would wear. Basically, if it looks like a carnival costume, I’ll wear it.  Those tights are pretty cool, too. Anyway, I’m glad Viv came away from the hobo-chic plaguing her last few seasons.

Australian shop Lark is exactly the kind of store I LOVE! It’s filled with unique, cutesy, girly, vintage items that are destined to become heirlooms. ( I could be a little dramatic, right now because no one right is gonna use 40 year old soap.) Anyway, here’s a run down of everything I loved in their online store:

1. Fun Fact: I collect cuckoo clocks and gnomes. (That probably explains everything.) Anywho, these cuckoo clocks are extra-special because they’re FELT! Awesome is an understatement. But I predict it would be covered in cat hair by day 3 at my house. Even more FUN!

2. Deer soap- So vintage-y and Bambi-like. LOVE  it so much that I probably would never use it. Woe is me.

3. A Diner lunchbox/handbag- It’s a 1950s partaaay!

4.A pigtail kit- Because it’s a dire necessity in any girl’s life. I ordered two.

5. Vintage Dinner Placemat- Excellent way to remember which side the silverware goes. Also, an excellent way to serve food without dishes…. maybe not.

6.An owl purse- My Goldfrapp obsession continues…

7. Felt deer’s head- Brilliant!!!! No deers died for that, but the felt felt something.(Gong! Wait one more.. almost done….)

8.Teacup gift wrap- But, of course!

Okay, you can use the hook now.

If you’re under the Witness Protection Program and you like hats, this one’s for you! It’s like a mask and hat in one- it’s a twofer! Designer Zara Gorman made these masterpieces of mystery after a visit to Crate and Barrel’s housewares section. No. These are actually really cool and I love the shiny black, lacquered look. I think my favorite is the fifth photo. It’s like a macabre unicorn and horse blinders in one- Awesome! If I had the hat in the fourth photo, I would totally use it as fruit bowl when I’m not wearing it. I’d put green apples in it like a fancy hotel.

Sponsored by Coutts ( no, it’s not a nursing home– it’s a fancy bank in the UK) designer Louise Goldin made a dress entirely from paper for London Fashion Week. At first I thought maybe the office did a recycling program with scrap paper, but I was wrong. There are no numbers and graphs on the either side! Check out this video to see how it was done in case you want to polish up on your paper dress making. I have to say I love how the video is shot, as if invisible elves were constructing it. Such a gorgeous dress… too bad it rips if you move.

Moschino Spring 2011, of course! I’m kinda liking this collection- the  polka dots, the stripes, the BOWS! The cowboy hat has got to go , though. Seriously, all I can think about is Destiny’s Child. Cheeeeeeze. Anyhow, I can see myself wearing all these outfits. My fave is the last outfit in red and purple polka dots. I think the bows on the collar make the look so dandy. So, the real question is: Would “The Nanny” still wear Moschino?  I have a feeling she would wear this collection, at least. I’m so happy that the Moschino is revived again- it was going through an ‘unfortunate department store’ phase for a while there. Glad to have the high fashion, whimsical look back at Moschino.
