Ann Demeulemeester Headpieces

Posted in Accessories, DIY, Fashion, Structure & Form by Michelle on September 10, 2010

I’ve been continually eyeing these feather headpieces, by Ann Demeulemeester, for months and months – with no other reason than that they are so pretty. They’re of the few pieces of art I continually revisit, just to look at and sigh. At $700+ there’s no way I can afford it. Time to DIY it!


Alexander Wang Polina Bearded Boot

Posted in DIY, Shoes by Michelle on September 9, 2010

This boot is hotness! The goat hair might need periodic combing to keep it shiny, silky, and lustrous. F/W 2010. $925 at Bergdorf Goodman.

Nickels Have a Use

Posted in Design, DIY, For the House by Michelle on July 29, 2010

This is a Nickel Coin Bench created by Vermont based designer, Johnny Swing. Made out of  7,000 nickels welded together. If you purchased this bench, you’d be getting $350 back. Nice.

I’m loving the underside construction of metal rods as well. Check out more pics with the link.
