Swedish Hasbeens?


Nope. I'm calling these little puppies my Swedish Neverweres. Or maybe I should call them Swedish Alwaysweres and Alwayswillbes since they're modeled on popular styles from the 70s. I'm not sure. But I am sure that they're just as cute as Swedish Hasbeens, and were less than half as much through a Swedish clog seller on ebay.

Hasbeens has more options and modern reinterpretations of classic clogs (not to mention the recent collaboration with H&M), but this particular style is also made by real deal Swedish clog makers Torpatoffeln








Even if certain friends of Swedish descent will rub in the fact that I'm a Norwegian in Swedish shoes, I can't wait to wear them all summer long.

Derby Diy: Sewn Roses







Don't get me wrong - I love the classic simplicity of my  black floppy 70s hat. But it just wasn't Derby worthy until I sewed eight red roses onto it. 





In keeping with tradition, my horse totally lost. Dialed In? More like Phoned It In.

Let's Be Friends

Maybe, if you're nice to me, I'll make you a friendship bracelet this summer. Then we can wear them with a bunch of other shit on our wrists.




God, Kanye. Save some Cartier love bracelets for the rest of us!

Ok, let's be serious though. Cartier love bracelets are really expensive. How about one of these?


Hm. Maaaybe I should just start with some thread.


Hot *and* cool? Sign me up.

Julez for Japan


I'm a little obsessed with Solange Knowles' style. She has a pretty inarguably awesome shoe collection, and a covetable music video wardrobe.

But, heh ahem, she's not the only one in the family with awesome style (insert trope comparing Solange to Beyonce here). No, this time the family member she's sharing the spotlight with is her son, Daniel Julez Smith. He's not singing or dancing, but some of his mom's style must already have rubbed off on him at the tender age of 6 years old, and he's putting it to good use to help victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. After witnessing the devastation on tv and feeling an urge to help out, Julez painted the bold Japanese flag-inspired design that's digitally emblazoned on each Julez for Japan tee (donated by American Apparel).



All proceeds from the Julez for Japan tees go to Peace Winds Japan. Unfortch, I think they're sold out, but maybe there will be more to come, and if not, why not take the opportunity to donate anyways if you haven't already.
