darcel's halloween.

October 31st, 2009 · Comments Off on darcel's halloween.

We haven’t posted a Darcelism in quite sometime, but his sentiments on Halloween are eerily similar to mine . . . 10.29.2009 A Snuggie, a Croc, an Ed Hardy, an Ugg and a Kanye is the scariest Halloween costume I could ever dream of.                       […]

Browse now: the Design Research installation.

October 29th, 2009 · Comments Off on Browse now: the Design Research installation.

Photo from The Boston Globe. A few weeks ago as I was rushing through Harvard Square, a glint of Marimekko fabric caught my eye. Could it be!? A huge Marimekko flagship store in Harvard Square!? Too good to be true, although there is a Marimekko concept store in Cambridge. I had forgotten about it completely, […]

problem solved: chic swing coat for less than $200.

October 29th, 2009 · Comments Off on problem solved: chic swing coat for less than $200.

A few weeks ago as the leaves started turning, and we were hit with a sudden cold snap, it occurred to me that I haven’t actually owned a black wool coat for several years and that it was problem time to get with it. A quick search on ShopStyle (great site btw) returned a slew […]

arrrrrr jcdc!

October 28th, 2009 · Comments Off on arrrrrr jcdc!

There are a couple of fashion shows I look forward to each season, and JCDC is one of those shows. Mostly because you never know what Jean-Charles de Castelbajac will turn out, but you can be assured that it’ll always be playfully humorous with bits of gawdy commercialism and pop culture carefully mixed in.

breakfast-flavored dental floss.

October 26th, 2009 · Comments Off on breakfast-flavored dental floss.

While I’m not totally sold on food-flavored dental floss — it’s all kinds of wrong — the illustrations on each of these floss packs are pretty darn cute. Would they influence me to purchase the breakfast floss set? Eh, probably not, but maybe you will! Available at Fred Flare.

authentics romeo and julia candles.

October 26th, 2009 · Comments Off on authentics romeo and julia candles.

I didn’t even know Authentics made candles! But now that I do (thank you Distillate), I must admit, I’d love to sprinkle these lovelies all about our apartment. Don’t worry! Although they’re made entirely of wax, once the candle burns down to the top of the holder, the fame is extinguished by an invisible metal […]

October 26th, 2009 · Comments Off on chikuno cube.

Whew! What’s that smell!? After adding a puppy to our lifestyle, odor eating objects have taken on a whole new appeal. But for a scent that even an open window, Papier d’Armenie, Nag Champa, and baking soda won’t mask, try a Chikuno Cube — made from bamboo charcoal. The stylish cube is said to last […]

lego kitchen.

October 20th, 2009 · Comments Off on lego kitchen.

Ever wished you could turn your mini Lego creations into bonafide living spaces? Yeah? Me too. And I suppose so did Parisian designers Simon Pillard and Philippe Rosetti (who work for JCDC and Hugo Boss, respectively). After purchasing a kitchen island from IKEA, the two gentlemen spent a week covering it with 20,000 Lego pieces, […]
