If I could have an extra body part it would be a tail. Last night I got the chance to make that wish a partial reality — I made a dinosaur wearable. The CCA MFA in Design Program is hosting Nightlife on Thursday, November 14 at the California Academy of Sciences and along with my strap-on stegosaurus, guests will have the opportunity to try out other great wearables and interact with tons of metamorphosis-inspired installations and exhibitions.
I have horrible luck with bikes. A few months ago, St Patrick's Day to be exact, I was in a bike accident that temporarily cost me my sense of taste and smell. And no doubt a few brain cells. Since then, I've vowed to stay away from them. A friend recently sent me a link to this bike helmet by the Swedish company Hövding, and it just may have me re-thinking my vow. It's a stunning feat of a marriage between technology and fashion.
And that dress! Eat your heart out.
While we're all waiting on my Commute Project design from yesterday to finish up (I'm keeping it a secret, but it's out of my hands at this point), I thought I'd share some images from the Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2011 Runway show. It stopped me in my tracks. Not only does he have a glorious mix of texture, I can't stop drooling over the inky blacks and silky ivory color palette.
Go here for more images.
I've been collecting random bits and images from my email over the past few weeks and thought I'd share. Email marketing and strategy is for work. Email collages are for fun. Sometimes they collide.

For example, Stylish White Female (who is supposed to be posting pictures of her killer outfits) is blogging about baked potatoes and kale. To top things off, I just found out from a friend on Facebook that today is National Chocolate Cake day.
Gah! What's a girl gotta do to get a giant piece of chocolate cake?
P.S. I also like any kind of cheesecake.
