Apartment Shot Part 2: Typeset Jewelry Holder

Gotta love:

A) Having parents that are borderline hoarders so that when you walk into the attic you’ll casually find a typeset drawer

B) Growing up in rural New England/an old colonial farmhouse where finding these kinds of things is the norm

C) Not having to pay a damn thing to decorate my apartment!

Here’s the latest addition to my new digs: a typeset drawer jewelry organizer:

Just don’t tell anyone that it’s currently being propped up by a roll of duct tape until I come up with a more permanent solution…

And yes, I’m aware that my coyote necklace looks like it’s doing unspeakable things to my horse necklace and I. Don’t. Care.

The perfect weekender: Barnacle Bags

I know this is going to sound like an online dating profile line, but I love to travel. I do. So shoot me. The difference between me and all the lofty “oh, I want to circumnavigate the world and visit places that no one’s ever heard of” is that I enjoy weekend trips home to New Hampshire/Boston. Trips that don’t require me to pack heels, fancy outfits, or even toiletries. And since my trips usually span Friday — Sunday (Monday if I’m lucky), I only need a weekender.

Enter the perfect weekender compliments of Barnacle Bags on Etsy. BB is a line of custom-made backpacks and totes that are perfect for travelling. They’re durable, painfully adorable, and handcrafted in the seller’s home/studio on Lopez Island off of Washington State. I got a custom waxed canvas backpack with mixed fabrics (hooray for polka dots and stripes!) and I have to confess: IT. IS. AMAZING. I get a ton of compliments and it has everything I need for a weekend away. The outer pocket is great for quick access to train tickets/travel docs and the inner pocket holds my wallet, phone and all those other goodies I don’t want jacked. Plus it comes wrapped in brown paper and twine with a personal note from the seller herself. Even if it wasn’t perfect bag for weekend overnights, that detail alone would have me convinced it was the best thing I’d ever purchased.

Walk of Shame Outfit: Warm Fall Edition

image

I’m baaaaaaaaaaaackkkkkkkkk. Just kidding. I’m still  horribly single and struggle with attracting men in NYC…but that’s not without effort. I did just sign up for HowAboutWe.com though so that may change soon. I’ll keep you posted.

But that’s beside the point! Let’s talk about this walk of shame outfit!

Now I know what you’re thinking: this look is for daytime only; elizadeath looks like she belongs at a Pearl Jam or Nirvana concert; this outfit only works in attracting men because her vag is hanging out. Well, you would be right (to all the above) but that doesn’t mean it’s not a man magnet (to a certain faction) and the perfect outfit for walk of shaming.

First of all, this look is perfect for daytime (duh) so your morning-after schleping back to your apartment goes totally under the radar of judging moms and early risers. But for nighttime, it works quiet perfectly as well. Honestly, all you need to do is add a little red lipstick (I used a combo of Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Coral and Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick in Courtisane) and you’re ready to romp. Plus, if you get hot on the dance floor, you can very easily tie the button down around your waist and whip the sleeves around in a quasi-sexy-if-you-loved-the-90s way. It’s intriguing and exotic.

Here’s the look rundown:

Plaid Shirt, J.Crew
T-Shirt, Hanes V-Neck + homemade stencil
Shorts, American Eagle
Boots, Frye (in Plum)
Watch, Michael Kors

Happy walk for shaming!

Miley Cyrus has turned into Robyn

=

I see a small resemblance, and by small I mean it looks like I’m looking at twins. I’m all for someone changing up their looks, but I think Miley looks like shit. Plain and simple. I’m no Perez Hilton, TMZ, or any style guru for that matter. I’m just a guy, with a dick, and that picture is not making it move at all. So put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Literally, smoke it.

 

Elizadeath:

I’m giving Miley 48 hours to be snapped in this outfit:

Do it Miley and I PROMISE you will gain a bagillion more fans, including yours truly.

Michael Jackson designed to perfection

The 80’s were such a brilliant time for both graphic designers and pop music (case and point below).

What the hell happened to Jason Mraz

Here is the Jason Mraz we all know. Baby face, always smiling, terrible fedora.. whatever, we deal with it because he’s Mraz. Well I was watching Palladia this morning only to find out that America’s sweetheart has pulled a complete 180 and now looks like Willie Nelson’s son. Exhibit A:

Long hair, don’t care. Elizadeath is going to be devestated. She lives and dies by the Mraz fedora.

LeiVanKash: Jewelry TO DIE For

So my latest obsession is British jewelry designer LeiVanKash. I’m PAINFULLY obsessed. Everything about every piece just screams badassery. I peruse the site endlessly like I have buttloads of discretionary income and you should too. Plus it’s priced in pounds so you can forget how much it actually costs…

Some of my favorite pieces:

Get your fix at www.LeiVanKash.com.

“Corny” Fashion

I seriously need both of these for summer.

Gentlemen: do you think my manpanion would be offended if I purchased ‘his’ and ‘hers’ shirts? Cause I’m seriously 30 seconds away from ordering these.

Oh, and if food-inspired shirts aren’t your jam, I’m sure you’ll find something you can’t live without at HaveToHaveItCo.com. They legit have everything you have to have.
