How cool is this labyrinth aquarium??!!! We've got 2 empty fishtanks at home including one built into the wall with a frame around it to look like a picture frame, but even that doesn't compare to this!! I'm sure if I had this at home I'd be persuaded to look after the little fishies inside :)

I thought I'd highlight a piece each week, most of the time it'll be something new, but for now, since I've just wrapped up a range and about to start a new range, I thought I'd highlight some of my favourite pieces.
This week, it's the "I heard it through the grapevine earrings". These earrings are brass and are handcut into a beautiful organic vine shape. They are so easy to wear, I have a pair myself and they dress up a casual outfit so well. And they are a great alternative to hoops.
Available now at Marika King Designer Jewellery.

Her designs are described as European chic combined with New Yorks spirit and modern sensibility. I just think her designs are fresh, affordable and so easy to wear. I'll definitely be checking in regularly to see what else she has. In the meantime, I'll be waiting for the mailman to deliver my new vest.

The twitterer is Justin of "shit my dad says". And it's just that, shit his dad says. But boy, his dad needs his own sitcom! Justin is a 29 year old guy who lives with his 73 year old dad.
If you'ld like a taste of his tweets, here are some recent ones:
"Remember how you used to make fun of me for being bald?.....No, I'm not gonna make a joke. I'll let your mirror do that"
"I wanted to see Detroit win. I've been there. It looks like God took a shit on a parking lot. They deserve some good news."
"I turn the kitchen faucet on and the shower burns you, yes, I get it....No, I'm not going to stop, I'm just saying yes, I get that concept"
"Why the fuck would you want to live to 100? I'm 73 and shit's starting to get boring. By the way, there's no money left when I go, just fyi"
How could you not find this guy hilarious? He's a legend!

Definitely check out the I Am Style-ish blog. My favourite is her lookbooks, she's definitely a gal with effortless style. And her other sponsors are amazing as well!

One particular piece that really captured my attention was this piece by Duffy London. It's the Glo Chandelier and comes in 3 colors. Here is an example of one. I've never been into those light up pictures, but this one, well, I've changed my mind after seeing this.
So I'm trying to get rid of all my stock in my old shop so I don't have to re-input it into my new shop, I'd like to start afresh.
All sale stock is at cost!! All other stock is either at wholesale price or below, so either way, every item in the store is at a ridiculously low price. Some of these items retailed at more then $100 in boutiques!!
So feel free to take a peek adn see if there is anything that tickles your fancy. Here are a few things that are on offer:

Some of the more recent trends, I'm really not feeling. In the past, I figured because it was a trend and it was popular, it must be fashionable, and more often then not I didn't mind the trend and sometimes adapted it myself. But the trends around lately? I don't like them one bit! Take the harem pants for example, I soooooooooo can't see myself doing them. Or the boyfriend jean. They look identical to the 501's I rocked in the late 80's/early 90's (showing my age here). Also the military look. How many times has that trend come and gone. I figure if I really rocked it once, that boat has sailed for me and sadly, most of the current trends are all trends I've done. One I vowed not to follow is the big shoulderpad thing. However, I recently came across a picture of Michelle Moynahan with a big shoulder jacket that made me rethink my no go zone. What do you think?
There is still no way I will do this season's military look (that's for us southern hemisphere girls who are approaching winter). I have nightmares of a purple military inspired suit I wore to work TO DEATH. Never again.
By the way, my jeans still don't fit.
