Made me chuckle

A walk around the corner

What a better way for everyone's beloved childhood furry friends from the best street around to celebrate their 40th birthday than hanging out with models and renowned designers?
The September issue of Harpers Bazaar US took a stroll down to Sesame Street with designers DVF, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera and others along with models draped in their clothing for a shoot with out favourite creatures to create this whimsical photoshoot. Maybe this will bring the show back to the UK?

Watch them in action:

It's all in the name of fashion

Graffiti to some is an art form, to others is vandalism. Which ever view you hold, when living in a Metropolis, you are bound to walk amongst these self-expressive illustrations and so where to draw the line at art/vandalism is immanently relevant. The anonymous French street-artist Zevs however pushes the boundaries with his  fashion inspired and sometime humorous creations. When they say no publicity is bad publicity, they must be referring to Zevs new place on the art world map. After his controversial paint splashes between model's eyes, Zevs finally pushed the boundaries that one step too far and was arrested after painting a giant dripping Chanel logo on an Armani store wall in Hong Kong. 

Case in point, one mans art is another's trash.

I know I keep banging on about DIY ideas and haven't actually shown any of my creations but the sad fact is they are all extremely slow processes. My subconscious keeps popping out and tucking my bag of studs away in the cupboard to avoid the embarrassment of my sad creations... So I figure other people's DIY attempts would be far more inspiring than my poor excuses of DIY.
On that note here's an incredible DIY jewelry collection that I did not create. Hurricane Boutique has shown her zipper collection on her Etsy store. Who would have thought I'd be searching ebay for a roll of zippers for a ring?

Whilst on the subject of the multi-uses of zippers, it feels only appropriate to show the surreal interpretation of zippers by Montreal-born Rad Hourani.
