Not only is Karolczak’s study of human body and anatomy in her content unique and exceptional, but so is her use of antique paints and materials.

I really wish I had this skill level in sewing. I am currently planning a nice weekender bag. This bag is a great piece of inspiration.

I did a studio visit with Kim and Namdev of MVA Studio back in October of 2010. Recently, the MVA studio has released a book on typography called Function, Restraint, and Subversion in Typography. Check it out!

Damn you Rodarte meets Opening Ceremony! This is ridiculous, I should have known that when these two fashion houses meet they would make something genius. Superb.


Another Etsy post, I know. I can't help it these Golden Forest Boots are stunning!

I love old medical stuff. It's usually interesting and to me, aesthetically pleasing; like this Wooden First Aid Kit.

The Best Skateboarding Video Ever

I'm in love, it's the head over heels kind, literally I guess. I came across this video on a few different blogs. It's Kilian Martin for Man About Town, I usually don't go for the skateboarder type but, I definably go for the refined throw-back with snazzy socks type. Though, I did go through a phase at age about 13 when I started skateboarding. I love everything about this video: the clothes, the location, the time of day, & the music. My lousy film stills do it no justice so go see it for yourself. Did I mention I have a huge crush on this video? Talk about a dancing dreamboat.
