Out Of The Ordinary

Wouldn’t be able to rock this Flower Ear Cover Earring by Super Fertile, but props to anyone who can.

Love anything that has an origami-like aesthetic or a futuristic element, so I’m digging this Future Cape by T.E.M.O.R.E.S, made from wetsuit material, and these MC Satin Pants by Miss Mars.

Jump On It: Robert Lee Morris for Elizabeth and James

Bloomies has the Robert Lee Morris for Elizabeth and James Knuckle Brass Ring back in stock.  Also available in sterling silver.  The $35 silver ring I just got in Mexico is my twist on this style with the checkered detail outlines.

Zipper + Chain = Genius Cuff

I can’t afford any of Jen Kao‘s fierce clothes, but they are seriously stun-sational and I still enjoy just looking at the innovative construction of the pieces.  This Jen Kao Cuff is to.die.for. ($660)

Currently watching the Fifty People One Question videos again. When these short clips first hit the Web months ago, I was amazed by the simplicity of, yet touching responses that were filmed. I want them to come to LA and see how different the answers will be from the cities they’ve visited. My favs are New Orleans (Four Tet is amazing jam music) and Brooklyn.

Don’t Hate the Player, Hate the Game

I hate bargaining. I hate knowing that I’m being ripped off when a seller is telling me to pay nearly $300 for a (pretty lightweight) silver cuff bracelet. C’mon, I do enough scouring on the Web and shopping for jewelry on QVC.com that I know what’s a fair price for a piece of silver. Anyway, the only thing I bought for myself in Playa del Carmen was this silver ring. When I first saw it, I immediately thought of the Robert Lee Morris for Elizabeth and James knuckle brass ring.

elizabeth-and-james-ringObvi, this is sold out everywhere, but I randomly found it on Bloomingdales.com (size 6 only).  UPDATE: There must have been only one in stock because I just checked online, and now it’s  sold out.

Honestly, trying to bargain with the vendors sometimes takes way too much effort. I think that’s partially why I didn’t really buy anything, plus I had to save up dough for the items I’ve been lusting after pre-Mexico. Here are some pics I took during our many shopping excursions.

stuffed-animalsI know these are handmade, but I’d never drop $20 on some scary looking, not soft/squishy (because I tried punching one, “probably filled with drugs” – Er) stuffed animals. Plus, my Freddy Miguel wouldn’t approve of these if I ever brought one home. Yes, I named my stuffed animal monkey Freddy Miguel.

Ring My Bell

Lusting after these one-of-a-kind rings from October Anniversary. The company uses recycled metals sourced from eco-friendly factories and donates 10% of profits to Happy Hearts Fund. I’ll be purchasing the Peace Lily in gold very soon (pictured directly above). Practical? No. But completely unique and uber rad.

Also digging this CC Skye Angel Wing Ring available on ShopIntuition.com. Love this Daydream Nation connected knuckle ring as well. Too bad it’s sold out. I’ve always been a fan of LC’s double name ring, but would get a custom made one with a meaningful word, like Passion or Believe. Pure finger-looking good.
