Freestyle + Fall Fashion

To recover from a crazy Wednesday night with the Danes, I plopped on the couch and watched the documentary Freestyle last night.To be completely honest it, Mos Def was the selling point....crushing on this boy for sure!

The doc was interesting and had some amazing footage, including Notorious B.I.G. (RIP boy) rapping on the streets of Brooklyn when he was a little B.I.G.
Plus footage of Run DMC on the Soooouuuuuuulllllllllllllllll Train. Check out the guy on the right in the red me crazy, but I think this hat is showing for Fall, see below.

Self Inflicted Torture with Matt Bernson

(Don't get any ideas with that title!) Why do I torture myself, why even bother? It's still way to cold to wear sandals and they definitely don't fall into the stiff soled/supportive guideline mandated for my fracture.

Suppose, I was injury free and off on spring break somewhere warm and tropical, Matt Bernson's sandals would definitely be in my suitcase! All of his line is handcrafted in Brazil (obrigado) and he runs the show out of Tribeca. Love 'em!
Here's my spring pics...

Complete credit goes to the INT boys...

1. Dominic Wilcox created these rust and scratch stickers are designed to make your beautiful bike/car look rusted and scratched so that passing thieves assume it's not worth stealing due to its apparent shabbyness.

2. David Barbarino - a German Artist who produces these and many more hysterical posters...

Crochet Coral

From inhabitat...A collaboration of colorful creatures is forming in an amazing crochet project to raise awareness about the threats to delicate ocean ecosystems. The clicking of crochet hooks and the determination of skilled, multi-disciplinary crafters from around the world to produce a massive crochet version of the Great Barrier Reef to serve as a testimony to the pollution and climate change that threaten this natural wonder.

Lisa Solberg

It's funny how intros happen....Lisa received her BFA at CU but it wasn't until my friend Ruscha went out to LA that I was introduced to Lisa's art. I can best describe her work as, a combination of street art with a dash of Basquiat, a touch Twombly and a hint of Escher.

Some of my fav's include; (in order) Caged Horse, Weapon and Mangia.

You can check out her entire collection here

Ingenious!!!! I love it!!! I read about yesterday in the NY Times. It's a vocabulary game that helps to feed the hungry....for each word you get right, they donate 20 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program.

Beatrice Neumann

My dear friend, Dara G of Dara Jewelry (go back to December posts to see her line) for weeks kept going on and on about this photographer she had booked for her new lookbook, a one Beatrice Neumann. While she was very excited, I honestly didn't get it. They were just shots of jewelry after all??? That is until I decided to check out the B's website and blog, NOW I get it!! The daughter of political refugees from Transylvania who met in Germany in the mid 70s, born and raised in Frankfurt, her work is spectacular! B has photographed for numerous publications; from Vogue to Vice and everything in between. Her photos will be included in the Taschen (oh I love my Taschen!!!!) book "The New Erotic Photography."
B keeps a blog too...definitely worth a visit - click here to view.

OF COURSE I couldn't leave you without a few of my favs.....

Followup to Fridays Article from LA Times

On Friday, I posted an article from the LA Times about harmful ingredients found in all natural and/or organic health and beauty products. 7th generation sent me (via a comment) a rebuttal to the article. If you are curious, its in the comment section of Friday's post.
I included the comment because my school of thought is that all information is good and you can't always believe what you read.

Is Hazelden your radar yet? Definitely check them out -
Apparently the rehab spot Hazelden already has...according an article in the LA times last week, the band heard from a Minnesota-based law firm representing the drug and alcohol treatment facility of the same name. Would the band please change its name?
Go here for the full article.
Come on now, cant we all just get along?? Regardless of the origination of the band's name (FROM THE DECORATED MILITARY HERO, people!!!!) the MN biz it should be stoked with all the free advertising. Especially because when it comes to rehab, these days, all the action goes to to Le Cirque and Passages (comps to Lalo and Brit Brit).

More LA

A big part of my trip a few weeks ago, my how time flies, was related to my work on The Eco-luxe Bridal Salon hosted by Pink Cloud Events and the Avita Co-op.

Let's just say, never has work been so much fun!!! We drank amazing cocktails by 4copas tequila and sake2me, received manis, pedis and massages from Veda Organic Spa, sampled delicious food from The IVGroup, cakes and chocolates from Edith Meyer and Theo Chocolate, had our faces made up by Josie Maran of Josie Maran Cosmetics, tried on shoes from Cri De Couer, lingerie from Coco de Mer and sampled products from Inara Organics just to name a few of the
many fabulous offerings!!
Check some photos (by Joel Henderson from Just Shoot Me) from the festivities:

3 Square with Deirdre

In LA, a few weeks ago, I grabbed a coffee and a cookie with Deirdre (founder of the lovely Ambrose Hotel) and her new bambina Allegra. The Ambrose is the only place to stay in Santa Monica if you ask me...we met at 3 Square Bakery on Abbot Kinney and I don't know what Wolfgang puts in those cookies but they are not to be missed!!!!

Cardboard Robot

Don't know these guys but if I did I know I would love 'em!! They are kinda hard to describe so I've poached the following from their website..."Cardboard Robot is a gang of the craziest misfits, dorks, & geeks you might ever come across. Led into the golden age of American ideals and rejecting all that is deemed "safe"paving the way for an individualistic army of ones...with production of tank barrettes,limited edition posters, architecturally inspired recyclable furniture and minimalist clothing." Here's a few of my fav tees but click here to see it all for yaself!!!
