I've lost the Finn of my life.

Finn is now missing for almost a full 48 hours. I am over.

San Diego, give me my cat back.

Lovin' on Pamela Love

So, I am trying to get some New York jewelry designer P. Love into the store I work at in San Diego, Pigment.....check it out,


Her stuff is awesome. She creates pieces that are edgy, youthful and still classic pieces of jewelry. I have never been much of an extravagant jewelry person, but when you see the right piece...you can just feel it surge inside you. I am hoping to go out to Brooklyn in September and meet up with her reps, so I am crossing my fingers...plus I wouldn't mind taking a trip to Brooklyn.

Pamela Love worked with Zac Posen to create punk Victorian bliss that will be available this Fall.

She has also worked with Frank Tell for some pieces that are combo jewelry and clothing.

Here's the back of the metal embroidered blazer jacket that fits the dreams of all heavy metal fashion lovers.

Pamela also teamed up with Yigal Azrouel for this Fall/Winter collection. Love providing the leather cuffs and claw earrings to match Azrouel's rock and roll and alomst gothic collection for Winter.

I love this look of edge and relaxed hang out attire. Everything feels soft, yet has a bite to it.

So anyway....hopefully we will have some of Love's stuff in San Diego soon enough.

IN the meantime, check her out:

and check out her recommended band Scorpio Rising, you can only know there's gotta be some talent with a name like that.

Thinking in Colors and Lines

OMG!!!! Jim Lambie is on my mind all the time. The ultimate crush, a faceless one. So I saw some of his work, not yet in person, in a class last year and ever since Ive been crushin.

This is what started it all. The lines, so slim and sleek and confident.

and then

lines become blotches of heaven, thrown so barbicarically against the gallery white.

Then he leads on touches of the animalistic. The paint spatter reflects the natural processes...hmm.

His newest projects, of many, is his Flower/Painting photos. From Stevie Nicks to Bob Dylan, Lambie has reflowered everyone.

I haven't finished stalking Jim Lambie, but he seems to be a busy man, so maybe he won't notice. Here's a link to his website to check out what else he's doing, including films, web design and photographs.

Flickr is like crack, but way more fresher.

Okay, I've finally done it. I'm blogging........do I have more to share than the next. Highly doubt it, but it's like a journal right??? So I'm flickr obsessed and have noticed some amazing photographers out there. One of my favorites it Elizabeth Weinberg from Brooklyn, she's super hot (I read) and very mysterious. You may recognize some of her photos like on the new Cat Power book by Elizabeth Goodman, "A Good Woman."

Here's Weinberg's original...

I've actaully found out about some bands through her photography, like Passion Pit:

and I don't know how many people follow "Look At This Fucking Hipster" but here again I ran across one of her greats

again, here's the original: http://www.flickr.com/photos/e-liz/689998015/in/set-72157594447770870/
