hairy sock

Posted by jessica
Hairy Sock is the brainchild of the very creative visual artist, Ruta Kiskyte. I'm a huge fan of wearable art, and Kiskyte's work is the epitome of art that is wearable.

Though it's difficult to choose a favourite, I am definitely enamoured by the laundry double brooch, the pearl person brooch and the crying pendant. So good.

shades of blue

Posted by jessica
I always seem to take photos, save them on my computer, and neglect to share them, so here are a few that are a couple months old.


I found this simple silk top at a thrift store. Though this is a beautiful sea-blue top on its own, I felt the urge to decorate it with some rhinestones.

I've wanted to try this technique with pearls and a big cozy sweater, too.

Diptyque Oyédo eau de toilette // Butter London Artful Dodger Nail Lacquer

Gosh, I love Diptyque's package design so much. Oh, and it smells deliciously fruity. Yum!

The feathery-leaf motif on this vintage bag is really something. It's rare to see this kind of treatment on leather bags, so I couldn't pass it up.

tales of endearment

1.//
These handmade leather cardholders by Falcon Wright would be perfect for carrying around my Instax Mini exposures. They're super cute and made locally in Toronto by two talented artists.
2.// I'm not exactly sure what I would use these vintage mesh pouches for. I think they would make for terrific gift bags or for storing away trinkets.
3.// I've always loved jewelry that incorporate geometric shapes, especially triangles, and this necklace by Cursive Design does not disappoint.
4.// Lace oxfords: I would want to wear these everywhere.
5.// Seriously, how adorable is this swan tote bag?


I find myself endlessly browsing through many of the great articles from Natalie Joos' Tales of Endearment when I came across this one of Eri.

Eri is a clothing designer based in Japan, with a really wonderful wardrobe. She also has a beautiful home, which she shares with her boyfriend and their cat, Yama. While growing up, her father owned vintage stores in New York and Japan, and along with her brother, they would fashion some of the pieces that their father curated.


It's hard to tell from the angle of this image, but the second vase from the left is in the shape of a hand.


I'm not sure what I love more here, those rings or her nail designs.
