House of Holland: Graduate Tights.

house of holland tightsHouse of Holland really enjoys color, and I love them for it. I first spotted these while looking for colorful tights for the Fall season on MyTights.com, and then again on real legs a la Susie from Style Bubble. These would be super cute with a shirt or shorts and maybe some combat boots or oxfords. The possibilities and endless, but the price isn’t because their only $14.00. Add to bag ASAP!

Chris Habana.

Habana Work

Chris Habana isn’t even meant for this blog. His stuff although sometimes uber expensive, is a little on the affordable side (if that makes any sense at all). If you care about good accessories that are versatile and long lasting than the expensive part kind of goes out the window because Chris’ products are worth it. Awhile ago my sister showed up with his WORK! hat on and I fell in love. It’s so bold, so out there, and so fun. Its one of those pieces you don’t wear anything else to distract attention from it because it’s literally making a statement all it’s own. His jewelry is pretty amazing as well, you can see some examples after the jump. If you feel inspired to purchase Chris Habana’s goods, you can find them at Oak NYC and Karmaloop

Halo Light – Graffiti Made Easy.

haloI’ve never been a graffiti head like some of my friends or family, I think it’s an under appreciated art form, but that’s where my knowledge and appreciation cuts off. For those street art lovers and graffiti heads out there, French designer Aissa Logerot has created this Halo light for graffiti artists who want to use light and long shutter photography instead of aerosol. The can is shaped just like a can of spray paint but features an LED light where the paint would come out. You can change the color and intensity at the other end, and once it runs out of battery power you can actually shake it up to regain power.

Pictures and examples under the hood:

The Magical Folding Bike.

drawingstudiobikeI posted this on my other blog, the one where I try really hard to make myself sound a bit cultured, and since this bike isn’t in production and even if it was I probably wouldn’t be able to afford it, it only seemed right for it to be posted here.

This bike doesn’t have a name, but in my mind it’s called “The Magical Folding Bike” because it is indeed a product of magic. On my quest to find the perfect bike, I’ve come across many variations of color and price, with tricked out features I have no time for. So after coming in contact with this perfecting crafted bike, I fell in love. It was created by 24 year old Dominic Hargreaves after his beloved bike collapsed. The bike can be folded into the span of the wheel and can fit in any nook or cranny making it space efficient. Word is, Dominic is in talks to have the bike mass produced sometime in the next year. One can only hope…

Ping Pong Table.

tobiasfraenzel-ping-pong-door-600x431No this is no normal ping pong table my friends. This gem doubles as an actual DOOR. Yes, it probably would an eyesore from all the fabulous things I have in my house right now (cough), but how amazing would it be to just wake up one day and play a round of ping pong with your roommate out of the blue? Totally RAD!

It would probably be nice to play beer pong on as well…no?

A Peace Treaty.

A Peace Treaty

A Peace Treaty

I’ve been a fan of the Peace Treaty brand of scarves for a couple years now. I think Katya might have been the one to turn me on them, but I’m old and senile so I can’t really remember. The problem with Peace Treaty is that although their scarves are epically drool worthy, the prices are not. I’ve got two scarves from them and both I’ve recieved on special occasions from parents and siblings that have way more money than I. With a scarf going for at least $200 would you expect anything less from a broke college student? I mean really…

Dico Copenhagen Brazil Flats.

Dico Copenhagen 'Brazil' Flat

Dico Copenhagen 'Brazil' Flat

Everyone knows I have a thing for flat shoes. I’m a fan of heels and especially how they elongate my legs, definately not a big fan on how they feel after standing in them for more than 10 minutes. My obsession with flats is currently focused on Oxfords and Loafers, I’ve found a couple pairs I’m thinking about purchasing, but their all muted dark colors not very suitable for summer weather. Dico Copenhagen apparently heard my cry and created their Brazil flat just for me. Or at least thats what I like to tell myself. Now available at Revolve. Get them before I do.
