Shoe-Worthy: Neon Criss Cross

shoeworthy 062710 signature

What would you dooo for a Klondike bar?  I wouldn’t do anything, not my kind of dessert.  For french macrons though, I was ready to hear the challenge.  Since I’ve been slacking off on my illustrations, a friend decided that it would do me some good to get back into it.  So I have to create an illustration each day of the work week in order to receive 24 macrons for each one posted.

My latest obsession are shoes so a week of shoe-worthy performances are ahead. An a very full and happy belly is something I get to look forward to. Don’t worry I won’t eat all 24 macrons in one day, but for those who know me, I’m quite capable of it.

Staying fashionable is on Lauren Musacchio’s To Do List along with learning how to run a music empire at Baruch College.

I meet Lauren while she searched for a cool outfit on her birthday, and as you can see she did good.  Once Lauren makes it big  she wouldn’t have to pay big bucks for a stylist, you got this!

Hey That’s Cheating Rubiks Cube.

At first glance this imitation of the famous Rubiks Cube looks easy enough,  The Cube Fontaine by artist Claire Fontaine is all blue no mater how you turn it.  The beauty of art, keep looking and there is more to see.  ” The 6 sides of the cube shows views of the surface of the sea. Manipulating it gives unique and contradictory images. This poetic object mixes the solid of the cube and the liquid of water while discreetly evoking ecological disasters that surround us.”

I figure the helmet that gets sold for the most amount should be the daddy, having a legend like Luke Skywalker to support is not getting cheaper, doesn’t matter how old he gets.

Her pieces show the hard work and time that went into making each one of them. Once upon a time you would had to order Sandra Backlund’s custom made designs to fit your body, now with Maglificio Miles, an Italian knitwear company who Ms. Backlund has collaborated with, Sandra Backlund garments can be worn by some of the fashionable ones who cannot or just doesn’t want to spend a lot.

I dare say that Backlund creations will keep us interested for years to come, because of  her innovative three-dimensional garments that shows us her own signature signature silhouettes that you either love or hate, nothing in between.
