could you please…

tell me how you feel about this shoe?

i think i like it, and don’t care THAT much, but don’t really want it to be perceived to be in the hipster-jazz-shoe-trend of the past several months.

drink taste!

I’ve been enjoying a very refreshing Blueberry Stoli and Soda cocktail all summer, and it’s served me well.  Ever since I learned of the ungood of most bars’ tonic, it’s been my refreshing alternative to g&t. If you haven’t had it you might give it a shot. It’s like a press, but sans the 7up.

And I’m typically a cheap drinker. Like…well drinks for for more than $3.50 kinda get on my nerves, but I don’t mind trading a dollar or so for less corn syrup calories (i like my calories from actual alcohol!)

mmm, fresh

 

 

But now autumn is here and this drink is too summery! I need an alternative to whiskey. Aren’t there any other killer cocktails that don’t have juice and soda in them? Something autumnal?! Mmm, autumn.

classy. brassy. woody.

 

 

I’ve been wanting some brass knuckles for some time now, but you know, not actual brass knuckles, for they are made for ass-kicking and not for stylish lady partying.

Not that the two are mutually exclusive, certainly, but actual brass knuckles are heavy and kind of restrictive. I type a lot.  And I don’t really find much cause for beating people up.

And I bet it’s hard to hold a champagne bottle in your hand w/ brass knuckles on. 

 

So instead…

 

For special occasions I’d like to don this little number by Zoe Chico:

For everyday badass-ery I’m loving on the wood rings by Good Wood.

They’re fly. Yeah, I say fly sometimes.

And you can pretty much get anything you want custom-made!!

p.s. the Gaylords of Death totally need custom rings that say G.O.D. fer certain

I must have this bag from WeSC

the Trish in smoked pearl

It’s like a puffy jacket…for all your shit. Serious, bag ain’t small. You might think you don’t like it, but look at it again, and from several angles please. $66. hell yes.

Also, love these headphones?

WeSC (We are the Superlative Conspiracy) is kind of a jam of a Swedish skateboard-y company with granted, a ghey-ass name, and some kinda not-my-style skater clothes, but some of it’s pretty killer and their new campaign features Jason Lee and (swoony-even-though-he’s-a-scientologist) Giovanni Ribisi.

Listen, I know letterpress is old news, but I still really like it.

 

And buyolympia.com has a slew of lovely letterpress paper products from Sesame Letterpress, a hub and wife team out of Brooklyn, NY (yeah Brooklyn, ever heard of it?)

Since I like it so much, I like to assume that other people like it also, and therefore like to receive it, and so in my mind it makes for good gifts. You follow? Killer.

 

My favorites are the coasters they do with various animals and flowers and such. Who doesn’t want to receive a special pack of coasters?!

 

Water rings on coffee table? God forbidly!

 

Thick paper coaster with a handsome hare? ah, don’t mind if I do…

 

Observe!

 

I don’t even hate the ‘skull and bones’

 

See them all here!!

 

$11 for 8 coasters made w/ waterproof ink (doi)

 

You love, yes?

 

Go check out the cutie-ass file folders they have too.

Sex and the Home Shopping Network

We need to discuss this:

 

Wait! there’s a story for this one…

“As night in the city crept toward the dawn of just another day she found herself totally exhausted. Having fun with your friends is hard work after all. She adjusted the black patent belt on her Pat Field halter dress and started for home. But a quick look in the ladies room mirror changed her mind. She still looked fabulous. “Oh well,” she thought. “One more dance can’t hurt!””

What does hurt is that the dress costs $99.90. You gots to be a-jokin me!

 

And I hate to admit it but I kind of like this one sans belt (at least it’s not made of polyester?)…

I know I totally would have worn it for easter when I was 8, but still.  Also, I could pay for it in 3 installments of $43.30. Bless you Pat Fields and bless you Home Shopping Network.

Check out the whole collection here.

 

Call me crazy, but I kinda just want to buy these leggings for 3 installments of $13.30. It just sounds fun/funny!

 

This is what’ll happen, so it seems…

“As she pulled on her aqua blue jersey dress and black leggings by Pat Field, she couldn’t help but wonder, “Can an outfit really change the way you feel?” She took one last look in the mirror and the answer was clear. “Yes!” She turned the knob and strutted out for another fabulous evening. Her destination? Style New York. Black, silver, red or gold. ”

 

uh, yah.
