Loving these shoes, like for real now. I see myself putting up lots of future posts from this shoe designer – Charlotte Olympia Dellal.

Check it out!

And my favorite….. I keep trying these shoes on, mentally.

I think that this is the engagement ring of my dreams. ❤ For serious. It’s also $38,500! I want it!

Dust Off Your Knuckle Dusters

Posted in Amusing, Design, Gadgets / Gear, Structure & Form by Michelle on September 8, 2010

If you’re a peace-loving hippie at heart but want to state, for a fact, that you’re pretty badass, then this post is for you. Are you non-confrontational but want to remind to your co-worker who is two weeks late on that $5 you lent him for lotto tickets? Yeah, you remember. Then this is just what you’re looking for. Simple ways get to your targets or just to make a point, subliminally and in some ways more obvious. Dust off those knuckle duster and repeat, “don’t mess with me.”

For the Fashionista:


Tamlin & The Fall

Posted in Bags, Structure & Form, Textiles & Materials by Michelle on September 4, 2010

Never heard of this maker before but I’m digging their stuff. Would you buy any of these if you had the money? At least it’s made to order. They’re all lined with matte black American Alligator and signed – you don’t see this much anymore now that we mostly purchase mass-produced.



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.

Incase Chrome Slider

Posted in Gadgets / Gear by Michelle on March 29, 2010

A few months ago, I wrote about the beauty of gold detailed gadgets. Today, I decided I’m going for this gold chrome iPhone 3g case by Incase, $35. Snazzy, tacky, and a little bit gaudy. Just what I like.

P.S. I’m so indecisive…. I can’t choose between gold or bronze. And I’m starting to like the silver one as well.

Sony Cybershot DSC-TX7

Posted in Gadgets / Gear, Reviews, Wish List by Michelle on March 11, 2010

This camera is officially mine!  Well, not right now, but when the prices drop.  Thennnn…. it will be mine!  I can’t figure out if I want it in Silver or Navy Blue though. It was released February 2010 for $399.

Specs I care about:

  • Shoots in HD video 1080i
  • Records 60 Frames/sec
  • Low light video recording is waaay improved from the TX1
  • Full touch screen backing
  • TransferJet Technology – can transfer to compatible devices by touching them together
  • iSweep Panorama Mode – panorama is detected and stitched together all in one shot

Great review at RedBan.

Puma Summer Hi-Top

Posted in Shoes, Structure & Form, Textiles & Materials by Michelle on October 21, 2009

Completely hot Pumas. I’m not a sneaker head, but this shoe is getting me all hot and bothered.
