Even more incredible in person ~ Wabi-Sabi necklaces are molten silver dropped in water and hung on red cord, which borrows from Buddhist traditions, bringing the wearer good luck and protection.
This top by Margarita Saplala is boho, goddess, and edgey all rolled into one cute top.

Fine looking messenger bag by Jas MB. For men but I wouldn't mind having it myself...
Steel Cake are a Brooklyn-based watchmakers whose pared down aesthetic is perfect for the modern man.
The pleats on this 3.1 Phillip Lim top create a great drape, and I love the keyhole and tie detail at the back.
It's a hoodie. It's a trench coat. It's the hooded trench sweatshirt by Opening Ceremony. (feels a bit like mike & chris for guys)
Pintuck detailing can give a lovely shape and movement to a garment. It's used to great effect on this dress by Diane von Furstenburg.

Drape neck coat by Dolce Vita. Stylish way to keep you (and your neck!) warm
Very cool hooded coat by Cloak & Dagger. Love how it looks from the back, and the single button at the collar.
Two finger rings are sooo 1176 posts ago (see post #160). Now it's all about the three finger ring by Surface to Air. Kind of brass knuckley, without the danger..?

I saw a woman wearing earrings similar to these (or maybe these were it?) and thought they looked pretty cool. You thread them through your ear... Long chain earrings by Campise (30% off)
Grey and black is everywhere which makes a rich color like this stand out all the more. It's mighty peasant-y, but I bet this Jovovich Hawk dress could be modernized with some sort of jacket or something
