British designer Matthew Harding has a wonderful sense of structure in his latest collection. It’s fluffy and  rigid at the same time. It makes me want to snuggle my face into the fabric like it was Mr. Marmar after a kitty spa day. I also really like the column of white silky tubes- although it reminds me of a Charmin toilet paper roll. There’s something galactic about those ensembles that appeals to me. I’ve been on a Star Wars marathon lately, thanks to my 5 year old son and I have a new sense of appreciate for the costumes, especially the later Star Wars movies. Anyway, Matthew Harding is definitely one to watch.

Beijing designer Xiao Li designed this capsule collection inspired by tin robots! Some of may know that I love love love robots and those vintage tin robots are the favorites. I have this tin robot that I attach to my handbag sometimes- it’s even named after me! Hahhaha. I cant’ hate on anything robot related, so I’ll go ahead and give this an A+++++. Even though the fourth photo looks like a busted diaphragm around her neck, I have to appreciate the craftsmanship. This collection reminds of when I would wear an empty hamper when I was kid. Boxy and smelling like sweaty socks. Those shoes are pretty rad if you’re into Bollywood and it’s totally a DIY- lumber jack boots, marbles (or gumballs, if you don’t mind ants), glue gun and you’re good to go.

PS- I did some research and could not find Xiao Li’s official website, but I did find this precious fluffball! Unless, she’s a fluffy panda bear with mad sewing skillz.

If you always wanted Willie Nelson, Bob Ross (“happy trees”), Pee Wee Herman and the Royal Tenenbaums to star in your own finger puppet show, then you’ve come to right place. Check out these finger puppets by Abbey Christine. She’s got all the details right, down to the grey braids on Willie and the ‘fro-stache-beard on Bob Ross. These are things you whip out during that last excruciating hour of work at the cubicle. I’m sure she can do custom work, in case you always wanted finger puppets of Prince and the New Power Generation. I mean, that would be really cool – Prince, Mayte, those 2 chicks in the ‘Cream’ video, and all the other 30 band members. Right?!

On a recent trip to Paris, I discovered this great chain of boutiques called La Chaise Longue. Unfortunately for me, this wonderful shop is only in France, but they do have a webshop. You can imagine the cost of shipping to the US. The one thing that I really loved and wanted was the mushroom table and stools. It would go perfect with my gnome-y atmosphere at home! But the shipping was pretty much equal to the cost of the set. Yikes! Here are my fave picks from this gem of a store:

1- Mushroom table set

2- High Heel Tea infuser

3-Reusable plastic tea infuser

4- Macaroon headphones

5-Telephone cuff links

6-Pastel knife set

Be sure to check out their cool site, La Chaise Longue.

So I dyed my hair over the Christmas break since I was so sick of dyeing my hair fire engine red every 2 weeks for fear of the skanky look. Seriously, half the month my head was under a hat because the color was fading and the roots were sprouting. I put it end to that by dyeing my hair my natural color ( kinda funny to dye your hair your natural color). Anywho, the talented Tressa the Hairdressa sent me a whole new batch of hair creations in my new color from her Etsy shop Puppycatmeow. Above are some cute Valentine’s themed hair accessories and I will post soon about the  hair creations. I had to break it into 2 posts since there was so much stuff!My favorite is the Valentine Rose hat! It matches my Valentine’s rose corset from Victoria’s Secret from 1997! Yes, I still have it. And check out the red human hair extensions- pretty cool if I want to go punky for the day or night. Check out Puppycatmeow ‘s shop for awesome hair creations!

If Jigsaw and Lladro were to have afternoon high tea together at The Savoy, I bet they would burp out something like this.  Seriously, this is pretty awesome just because of the shock factor. I’m not one for blood and gore, but GODDAMN! this is awesome. I mean, the ladies are so dainty, yet they are carrying their brains like a basket of fresh baked scones. Artist Jessica Harrison is behind these masterpieces. Be sure to check her site for more fupe artwork like furniture sprouting pubic hair. It’s like a Clarence Thomas /Anita Hill fest, but alas no Coke can. Anywho, this would be perfect in my dining room next to the Mark Ryden art.

One thing I suck at is origami. Seriously, even my paper airplanes can’t fly! My origami boats are all lopsided and sad. Fortunately, I leave that to the professionals (my 5 year old) and just step away from the paper. I remember I had this friend who would make  a cloth dinner  napkin into a penis. I’d get up from the table for five minutes and I’d come back with a penis napkin on my plate. What’s wrong with a damn swan?! Anyway, Origami Jewelry has memorialized the art of origami into cute  silver and gold necklaces. My favorite is the bunny, of course. I hope I didn’t given them any ideas for an origami penis necklace. Actually, that maybe a hot seller. Your welcome, Origami Jewelry!

LunaBlocks has taken a childhood delight and made it into an interior decorator’s nightmare! Seriously, every interior decorator I meet wants to transform every place into a Z Gallerie showroom. Ugh. The best part of these blocks is that you can make your own combinations to make the furniture of your childhood dreams! Each brick is about $20, so it’s not that cheap, but still well worth it if you have a passion for Legos. I like the tables the best and I would make all the bricks pink and black for a Barbie boudoir effect!

These are some amazing Paper Wigs by Amy Flurry and Nikki Salk of the Paper Cut Project based in Atlanta, Georgia. They are windows displays in the Jeffrey stores and The Hudson Bay Company in Toronto. Each one is so meticulously styled and is just beautiful! I would totally wear one on one those days where I’m in between dye jobs, if I could. Having red hair is such a pain in the arse sometimes.  This would go great with this paper dress or this paper dress. Wow- is all I can say!!

Claire Michel, a student at The Royal Academy of Art in Antwerp, unveiled these designs for a project. I did some heavy duty research ( I googled her ass) and found that there are over 7 million results for ‘Claire Michel’. So, naturally, I said eff this. I don’t know much about her, but her work stands for itself- Part deranged, part pre-school craft projects, part hoodie. This pretty much what I wear when I have to brave it and clean the toilets. I mean, you don’t want all those germs up in your face. I do like the ombre sneakers , though. At least this isn’t as bad as this dude’s collection.
