My friend Eliz is in Nueva Yorka and she sent me images of stuff I would go crazy about.
Just below the apartment where she's staying is a Comme des Garcons pop-up store for CDG Black, the anniversary line of Rei Kawakubo. Eliz is coveting that cut-away jacket from the line.
Over at Tom Binns, rhinestone pieces with bubble paint scribbles.
Talk about trashing 'tacky' pieces into something very cool and covetable. I wouldn't mind having a cuff or two. Make it a project and trash those 'pageant jewels' you have stored somewhere! ;)
