Adam Lippes managed one of the most impossible things in the fashion industry: to combine comfort with beauty. Through his intricate pieces and unique fabrics, I find Adam Lippes one of the most accomplished designers for spring 2008. Not only does he deliver a very constant and extraordinary line, his prices reflect the time, effort and materials spent to craft every single garment. Another thing I thoroughly enjoyed was his 2008 spring fashion show that included one of my favorite songs : Sea Lion Woman by Feist. If you haven't heard her new album yet, make sure to take in the exuberance of this quirky indie artist.

Here’s what you do: get a few different sized candles, about 6 to 10, put them in your fireplace, and voilà, your very own candle fireplace. It doesn’t offer the same kind of warmth a real fire would but it does offer the same amount of light, so you can enjoy your fireplace all year round.

Today's post on Black*Eiffel made me think of some of all my favorite children's books. I think my ultimate favorite must be Harold and the Purple Crayon, a cute little story about a boy who draws himself some wonderful adventures. It used to make my imagination go wild, and still does. I recommend it for anyone in need of inspiration. It's guaranteed to make you smile!

Ken Rogowski's art is pretty fun to make, when you think about it. It consists of combining different puzzles (usually the same puzzle company uses tan identical format for each picture) and making it into a usually quite cacophonic work of art. I’m thinking I could spend a summer afternoon trying out my skills at puzzle combining, along with my little sister.
You can find his other works here.

Hope all of you treated your daddies to something special!!
Wear your music is an organisation that transforms artist's old guitar strings into bracelets. From John Mayer and Jack Johnson to Ben Harper, it's guranteed you'll find one of your fave signers. You can find them online (wearyourmusic.org), where you can also buy "fake" guitar string bracelets for about 10$. All in all I thought this project was a great idea, since part of the proceeds are donated to the MusiCares organisation.

Kate Nash is amazing. And when I mean amazing I mean she’s an English redhead that’s never scared of saying what she thinks, and has the most beautiful way of saying it. She carefully entwines witty lyrics with inspiring keys on the piano and that is the reason I absolutely adore her.
(at the top is her music video called foundations)
“ Watching me like you never watch no one
Don't tell me that you didn't try and check out my bum
Cause I know that you did
Cause your friend told me that you liked it “
But before, I thought it suitable to present myslef by using a few of the Sartorialist's usual questions:
* Most cherished item :
A vintage fedora I share with my father
* I never break this fashion rule :
Always wear underwear ?
* Shine your own shoes?
* Favorite fashion magazine?
* I skimp when buying ...
Everything. except food. Thrifty is my way of life!
* I build my daily look around?
