Cardboard Furniture: Love It Or Hate It?

Designer Nikki of WhiMSY love had recently moved when she had a friend coming to stay as a house guest. What to do with a totally under-decorated basement and a butt load of leftover brown boxes? Nikki got all crafty and created a clever guest bedroom suite out of cardboard, and stuck the decor to the walls with duct tape. I love this eco-friendly alternative to having house guests sleeping on an air mattress on the floor. What do you think of this low-fi redo? [Apartment Therapy] Keep reading »

Brand Yourself With Chanel

Temporary Chanel tattoo not enough for you? Looking for a way to proclaim your love for all things Chanel that expresses the depth of your devotion to the original Coco? Now, you can brand your skin with the ubiquitous interlocked C’s. Created as a final project by Central Saint Martins design student Ryan McSorley, Skin by Chanel lets you take branding to a whole new level. Typically, if you want to show off your love of a brand, you can buy yourself a monogrammed bag. But how’s a woman to show off her high-end skin care products? “If you are using skincare by Chanel, you want people to know that your skin is by Chanel, in the same way that Chanel handbags have clear branding,” explains McSorley. Use the Chanel skincare products, and then tell the world about it with a Chanel skin impression. Check out the results after the jump. Keep reading »

Guo Pei Makes Platforms For The Modern Geisha Girl

Trend de la Creme points us to these totally bonkers geisha girl platforms created by Chinese fashion designer Guo Pei. The Beijing-based couturier is known for her style nods to Christian Dior and Alexander McQueen, and these skyscraper shoes are no exception. This embellished update of the traditional geta appeared on models walking the runway in her fall/winter 2010 collection. Thankfully, no broken toes were reported. [Trend de la Creme] Keep reading »

Pinking Shears Manicure, Anyone?

We’ve featured a lot of weird manicures here, but these pinking shears nails really take the cake. I’m not sure who created this, er, look, or how they did it, but I can’t say that I would sport it. While the nail appears to have been trimmed with pinking shears, it’s more likely that each jagged spike was cut by hand. Painful? Maybe. While the look sure is, um, different, you wouldn’t want to try and pull up your stockings with these run-making nails. [Boing Boing] Keep reading »

Worry Yourself Thin

Looking for a psychologically unhealthy way to lose weight? Think berating yourself will make you eat less? Fishs Eddy Worrisome Pattern plate does the trick for you. Its rim is lined with less than tactful reminders that you really shouldn’t eat that last slice of pizza. “Do you really need that second helping?” “It’s hard to be around you when you eat like this.” “For the love of god stop eating.” Fun! It’s like if you had a psychologically abusive parent, and then you moved out, and then the parent was brought back into your life through dinnerware! One supposes it might make you less likely to enjoy that extra serving of mac and cheese, but perhaps the bad feelings it brings would only make you want to eat more later. If you’re into that sort of thing, though, there’s a side plate to match. If you eat everything on it, the message on the bottom reads: “Big mistake.” [Via Riley Dog] Keep reading »

Natalia Vodianova And P. Diddy Get Their Train On

Model extraordinaire Natalia Vodianova and international player Sean Combs get all romantic and dreamy but not exactly freaky in this Annie Leibovitz-shot layout from the February 2010 issue of Vogue. It’s a nod to P. Diddy’s upcoming album, Last Train to Paris. More pretty pics after the jump. Keep reading »
