Goodies Galore!!

I was on Etsy today and found the cutest goodies. The items I chose were based around this french village. Besides looking at these goodies galore, I recommend you go and check out Etsy.

These pictures make me want to just sit down in a rocking chair knitting, in a little run down house in France. I know this post isn't really about fashion but Etsy is a place where you can find some accessories or even clothing to go with any personality.

Hair Genius

Some are math or science geniuses, but Nagi Noda was a hair genius. While some can barely brush their hair in the morning, she would use hair to make hats or sculptures. Her work is true art and should be recognized by all. Enough with all this talking, lets get to these amazing pieces of artwork that I'm talking about.

Besides making hair hats, she made Hanpandas. They are a combination of a panda and some other animal. At first when you see a hanpanda, it may look creepy but then the little half pandas grow on you.  Then it comes to the point that you have to own one, and I do need to own one.

This is the selection page that pops up on Nagi Noda's web site when you want to look at a Hanpanda.

                                             These are some examples of the Hanpandas.
You can still buy some of her stuff but she sadly died at 35 after surgery complications after a car accident. In honor of Nagi Noda, don't think of this as a post, but a tribute to her great work and success.

Forgive Me

This post is way over-due. I hope I can make up for the fact that I'm so late in this post with the collection I'm about to present. The genius collection I'm talking about is the Prada spring 2011 ready-to-wear. The collection was full of cheerful eccentric colors, detailed patterns, and futuristic seeming shapes.

This last image is my favorite!!
If I could, I would own every piece in this collection. I love how when you first glance at the collection it seems slightly serious but when you go and look at all the patterns, colors, and shapes you get this feel of someone who wants to look serious at work but is trying to cover the longing they have to dress really free and look like a really fun person. Ooh how I long to own a pair of those eye ware in the first image.

Kron by KronKron

Recently both of us have discovered what may be the greatest shoe company to ever step foot on this planet. This amazing, outstanding company we are talking about is KronKron. Though neither of us has possession of a pair of any of KronKron's shoes, we truly love them. Someday one of us will own a pair if it's the last thing we do. Well without going on and on, here are the fabulous shoes we have been going on about.

Aren't they just marvelous!!

Behind the Mask

This group of photos is supposed to tell a story of a girl who is shy and worried about what others will think of her. She hinds behind a mask and avoids bold colors but still shows a girly delicate side of her that nobody has ever seen before.
