British designer James Hock‘s latest collection is consists of only the colors red and black and a strong harlequin theme. Basically, it’s like the circus in an Asian restaurant. Lucky for James, I like the circus and I like Asian restaurants. The only thing I’m unsure of is the half shorts/half pants look. About 95% of the times that I wear pants, it means that I was too lazy to shave my legs. So those pants would just confuse me- to shave or not to shave?

Check out James’ older collection that belongs on Queen Latifah back in her U.N.I.T.Y days. I really like the boxy look, especially the ‘b*tch, get off my sidewalk’ shoulders. The last photo is something I’d wear to a cat show. Mr. Marmar could jump on my shoulder and use my hat as a scratching post. I love it all!

So,  I have to show you my gnome outfit I wore recently to my interviews with Elton John, Emily Blunt and James McAvoy for Gnomeo & Juliet. The movie was adorable! As a huge fan of gnomes ( Exhibit A and Exhibit B), I had to go all out and spread to everyone my freakish love for gnomes. Don’t laugh, but everyone has a weakness- mine happens to be miniature bearded men in pointy hats with an affinity for gardening.

I am wearing a skirt by Made With Love By Hannah, shoes by Irregular Choice, shirt from the depths of my closet, and cardigan by Anthropologie. Lilly pad/ladybug hair clip from Patricia Field‘s circa when I still had a pager and Hair Rosettes by ‘Tressa the Hairdressa’ from PuppycatMeow.

By the way, I wish they made this in my size! By DollFace girls.

Valentine’s Day is here and I thought I’d share some cool Valentine’s picks I found on Etsy. I love those old-timey Valentine’s cards with the cute woodland creatures and such wishing so and so a Happy Valentine’s Day. Do you think creatures know what Valentine’s is? In my world, they do. The miniature house that looks like a pink unicorn barfed glitter upon it is especially cute. I would get that to house my be@rbricks. You can never do wrong with Marie Antoinette gift tags/cards! The cupcakes are also from Esty- I had no idea you could sell food on Etsy. Maybe I should start selling breastmilk on Etsy. Or cheese made from breastmilk. That’s really artisan and local if you ask me. And lastly, heart-shaped crayons for your little one! (or big one!) They also do other shapes of crayons worth looking into.

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day filled with chocolates, flowers, cuddly bears, cats, more chocolates, champagne, sex, chocolate, and a terrible romantic comedy.

Humans Since 1982 must have seen one too many Japanese horror movies. When I first saw this, it took me a good 5-7 minutes to realize that the eyes are actually a hair clip. So, that photo is actually the back of some lady (or lady dude’s head). Creepy, huh? That’s something to wear in a really long line of people. Either you’ll get lots of compliments or  side-eyes reserved for lunatics. Anywho, these are limited edition with only 50 and cost $90. I say just cut out a magazine with your choice of celebutard eyes and tape it to the back of your head. Voila! Or order them here.

Check out this human body ball gown with heavy embroidery and bead detailing! It is pretty awesome. I would totally wear that to a drug company soiree.  If you want to see more of this Chinese designer check out the links below- pretty rad stuff! There’s one photo with a dress/skull cap and another with a short skirted dress- all equally fantastic!

*Sorry I couldn’t repost the other photos, but it wouldn’t let me grab the photo and I’m too lazy to figure it out. But alas, thedoppleganger from Polyvore has it all figured out:

From Polyvore – thedoppleganger:

“This is the original source of the photo:http://www.flickr.com/photos/miyake77/4559647489/ There are more photos from the show on that photostream, and here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/charles_studio/4449645410/From what I know, it’s from March 20th during China Fashion Week, so it’s Fall 2010. It was held at Shih Chien University (http://fashion.usc.edu.tw/c/work/fweek.asp) and the title of the show is “Artificial Beauty”. The designer’s name is listed in Chinese and I’ve translated it to search for them on Google, but no luck for anything in English. Chinese: 陳俐瑾 / 林志純 / 楊淳如 English: Chen Lijin / Lin pure / Yang Chun as. It’s a little confusing because of the language, but it’s all I could find.”

Wish I could post more photos, but definitely check out the links!

The original French punk did it again! I have to say this collection was by far one of the best Gaultier collections I have seen in a long time. The fact that it’s Haute Couture makes it even more impressive because although some of his designs can be costume-y, these are actually wearable, yet unique. My fave is definitely the last photo with the can-can skirt. BRILLIANT! If I wore that I’d make an excuse to lift my skirt as much as possible. The fifth photo of the black and white striped organza dress is just perfect. Why can’t movie stars were this stuff on the red carpet instead of the ho-hum, safe, FUG  dress?? All these incredible dresses and they end up with the one uninspiring dress that every JCPenney can knockoff. Really. Anyway, Gaultier has absolutely regained his special place in my heart!

PornStache mug cozy by  Knot workshop

Lego Keyboard by Beta Time

Knit beard hat by Poor Girl Couture

Knit heart and ovaries by An Optimistic Cynic

Sometimes I like to scroll through Etsy for stuff that are effed up someway. Take for instance the knit ovaries. Really? And then I like to see things that I contemplate ordering like the knit beard hat. It’s like super cozy and excellent for bank robbing! Seriously, though, I see a trend in the knit department- it’s like knitting is the new medium for all things kitsch. I guess anybody can knit and and you can take the project with you like on the subway sitting next to a man who is  sitting in a box.  I threw in a little lego keyboard that I thought was awesome!

Enjoy!

PS- I would have my tea or coffee without cream when that cozy is on the mug! Just sayin’!
