" I would love this Dia de los Muertos portrait from EFM Studio. The artist, Liz Martone, is a Brooklyn-based illustrator and glass artist who creates amazingly detailed mosaics. Her pieces on skate decks are equally rad."
"I'm obsessed with these simple, handmade wooden chairs that fold up and as a bonus, relieve lower back pain (fellow people who sit at a desk all day, rejoice!). Plus, they're surprisingly affordable, so here's hoping Santa brings it my way."
"I haven't owned a one piece bikini since probably 1987 but I'm planning a tropical trip to break up the doldrums of Winter and I want to learn how to surf. Only my bandeau side tie bikini is in danger of ending up like me - drifting out to sea. Cue hunt for stylish one piece, I think this would do the trick"
"After moving into a new apartment this fall, I've been on the hunt for the perfect throw for those chilly nights hovering on the horizon. The moment I saw this gorgeous zigzag blanket, a very limited edition collaboration between Faribault Woolen Mill Co. and Askov Finlayson, I knew my search had ended. But it gets even better -- for every blanket sold, one is donated to St. Stephen's Human Services, a nonprofit working to alleviate homelessness in Minneapolis. The perfect gift, really. "
"I would like to put the Zana Bayne Oxford harness on my wish list. It's the perfect everyday statement piece! I like how it's convertable from just the collar for day to day, even in the office! Or convert it to the full harness to amp up your outfit for going out or give that classic little black dress some edge. I dream of layering this on my favorite cut up tee shirt with a ton of long necklaces or under a simple button down to keep it clean and sleek. I love all her pieces but have coveted this one for some time and truly appreciate that it is made in NYC!"
The shapes of those wood pieces and the drape of the chains is so elegant and unusual. And I love how the designer, Susan, recycles vintage jewelry components - environmentally friendly and fashionable at the same time! I got a "Media Bracelet" from DLC two years ago and it's my favorite piece of jewelry I've ever owned."
" I am really picky when it comes to bags and this one has all of the elements that I'm looking for - it's a good size, nice hardware, and it would go with everything. I also love that's it's a two-in-one! I'm a sucker for efficiency (what can I say, I'm German!) and the fact that this bag becomes smaller or bigger depending on your needs is so great. "
