Been wanting to do this since LovEvolution 2011 in Oakland. Alright, Ashley Madekwe (on some tv show or something) shows up at an underground party in an abandoned loft in NYC.  Stacey Pullen is rumored to be headlining.  Unfortunately, Ashley gets turned away at the door due to dress code violation.  Let’s see what Ashley could’ve done that would’ve gotten her a solid 6 hours of dance-time and likely free treats. First off, I’d probably […]

Patience my little grasshoppas, these posts take a while. After taking a pole of my jungle buddies, I’ve come up with a list of characteristic clothing items worn by old school junglists.

Cargo pants/capris/skirts (eg. UFOs) 2. Crack […]

Tumblr page is coming.  It will be set up so you can just […]

Lisa Shahno pink leather geometric dress

I have no idea how I came upon Russian designer Lisa Shahno, but I’m twitter-pated.  Like with Wipprecht she is able to create futuristic clothing that is aesthetically successful (ie. it looks good), interesting, unique, while maintaining a conceptually complicated theme throughout her collections.  These work as art installations, or you could see them on the streets of Harajuku, on Bjork or Florence Welch (maybe Ginnifer Goodwin if she’s feeling frisky), or at a more theatrical […]

Todays DIY courtesy of Ivania Carpio at LOVE AESTHETICS.  Check out: DIY Transparent Cuffs for instructions.  I think there’s a variety of perspex colours out there so they don’t necessarily have to be clear.
