Who knew violins could take so much milage in fashion? Viktor & Rolf did it. Now ThreeAsFour…. I personally like violins and actually have a violin brooch I bought a while back from Etsy. There’s something somber and snobby about the violin… also it can turn quickly into a hillybilly  hoe down if need be. It’s so versatile! Honestly, these violins look out of place on the garment, as if the model is on their way to a gig or something and needed a free hand. That first outfit is perfect for those subway musicians… it’s like one hand plays, one hand collects money. That last dress looks totally like intestines. I rate this collection FUG.

If your doll’s shoes have gone missing in the past few months, look no further, the doll foot fetish lurking in  jewelry designer Tom Binns must have swiped them to make this immaculate piece of jewelry! Seriously, that’s a lot of barefoot Barbies. Good thing Barbie can’t get pregnant… or CAN she? Anywho, Moss Online offers this for sale but the price is available upon request. Usually, they say ‘price available upon request’ when they know that you’re gonna shoot them a ‘b*tch please ‘ side-eye  after finding out the price. I say just go to your neighborhood playground and start gathering lost doll shoes, then string it all together and throw it around your neck. Voila! And if it kid cries for her doll’s shoe, tell her that Cinderella story, but stop before the part where she gets the shoe back…. yeah, that’s the ticket.

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’!

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.

Norwegian company Concrete Wall has the perfect solution for your home to look like a crack den! Concrete wallpaper! Pretty brilliant. if you ask me. It’s like the jail experience but without the jail. It’s like being homeless but not really. It’s like ‘keeping it real’ but without the urine stench. It’s like being in an unfinished basement of a serial killer…. I’ll stop right there. Anyway, you can get these at Concrete Wall and they do accept Paypal and ship anywhere in the world and to anyone.

Just because it’s Prince Spaghetti night doesn’t mean that you can’t have spaghetti every friggin’ day of the week! That is if your main goal is to make a killer jacket that will make you the envy of your Rotary Club! I’m not sure how many packages it took to make all these creations, but I’m sure the Friskies jacket had a human consumer seeing that it takes months to go through a bag for one tiny ass cat that eats an ounce a day. I mean, isn’t it like patè? That is some District 9 sh*t. Anyway, if only I had a Capri Sun jacket, I would wear the crap out of it at the next PTA meeting.

If you have a pair of old ‘Ho’ shoes laying around and it doesn’t reek too bad of feet and cheap perfume, then this might be a brilliant DIY project! Or you can let  Giddy Spinster do the honors. Nothing says elegant and nature lover like a stiletto planter. Grow your own personal cactus plant in a defunct stiletto to remind you of your heydays an untouchable female….

So, really, this sounds like a cool idea only if the cactus plants were rosemary because I would perch that sh*t right on the kitchen counter. Call me demure.

Check out the other works of Giddy Spinster including a mascara wand art piece, blow dryer and bookends. Just as long as you don’t mind the smell of feet, I suppose.

American artist Robin Barcus Slonina latest project is making a dress sculpture for all 50 states. The first of the bunch are New York ( trash bag dress (I can’t forgive her for that!)), Nevada (casino chips dress -sounds about right although, I’d add a fannypack to make it pop), Maine, (pinecone dress (imagine the little bugs crawling!) and Wyoming (willow dress- which should have been NY, because it could look like the bodies floating in the Hudson River after a mafia spat). I threw in the rest of the photos of her work like a feather duster dress (I would totally dust the house wearing that), beachball dress ( from the 99 cent store aka “that store with a lot of typos and effed up cheap stuff “), and sponge dress ( are you sponge worthy?). Check out her blog for more everyday crap turned couture.

Where, oh, where did Yang Du come from?! We must share the same brain! These cartoon dresses are beyond awesome and yes, I would wear them all day, even to a funeral. My favorite have to be the cartoon eyes in the first photo and of course, the Batman dress. Fluffy, knit lion fingers have to be the funnest ever! Flipping the bird would take on a softer message. By the way, the eye makeup on the models is pretty rad, too. So, Yang Du is pretty hard to find and I seriously would like one of those dresses. Checkout his earlier collections below. Pretty fupe, huh? I’d totally sit next to that old lady on the bench and chat about cats.

German illustrator Peggy Wolf has something in common with my five year old… Collaging! These compositions are pretty cool, though. It reminds me of all the collages I used to make in high school of fashion magazines and taped them to my bedroom walls. Damn, I had a lot of time to kill. Somehow, mine looked messy and most nights I would freak out for a few seconds when Kristen McMenamy would stare me down with her nose ring and helmet hair…Anyway, Peggy Wolf ( I love that name , it’s like a storybook name!) is definitely  on my list of cool artists. Check out her more of her stuff here.
