Wooly Mammoth Ivory

"Cute necklace Sheila, what is it? Bone?" "No, its actually Mammoth."

Yes, giving this answer might cause someone to think you've gone off the edge but if you purchased your necklace at Occulter, than you could very well be wearing a necklace made out of Wooly Mammoth Ivory! Seriously! Isn't that the coolest thing you've ever heard? And almost unbelievable that a jewelry retailer could get their hands on them? Granted you really do get what you pay for. Example, take this Yiksa Breastplate for $9,300.00. Still, I would think that Wooly Mammoth Ivory would cost something like, oh I don't know, priceless? I imagine the limited remains of this grandiose, extinct mammal to be locked away inside a glass counter in a museum rather than being sported by a shirtless model in sneakers.  

Because of their massive size and the fact that they roamed lands of freezing temperature, snow, and glaciers, Wooly Mammoth remains were "preserved in an organic state" rather than being fossilized. Wooly Mammoth ivory is comparable to ivory that we are more accustomed to seeing such as ivory from elephant tusks. How great would it be to be able to wear a piece of history made from an extinct beast, one so grandiose and colossal in size? If anything what a great conversation starter.

I.AM.SO.FEELING.HER....Out of all the artists out there at this moment, Kimbra is really able to differentiate herself from the rest not only for her music, but for her style as well. I was hooked the first time I heard her unique sound and saw how passionately she performed. In fact, I prefer her music live than recorded. It's increasingly difficult for artists to separate themselves from one another in an industry where its all been done. But as a desensitized viewer who has seen it all, I am completely content to just sit and watch her groove to her own sound. No trying to distract us with costume changes, no complicated dance moves surrounded by back up dancers, no fireworks, no sex, just a talented, pretty girl with an awesome voice grooving to her own music. It's nice to see a musician who lets their music speak for itself. Plus her style rocks.

Admiring Tom Binns

I really admire how Tom Binns took traditionally elegant and chic pieces and made them his own by adding neon colored safety pins or splashing bright paint on them to create an unconventional punk flair.

Girl is Rocking It

Gisele's Vogue cover is what fashion spreads are meant to be. How beautiful and inviting does she look holding colorful balloons to match her rainbow metallic leggings (designed by Pam Hall)? Being that Giselle looks so unarguably head turning gorgeous in this ensemble, I was surprised to see how much slack these leggings are getting and the argument over whether Gisele is able to pull this look off or not...Isn't that a rhetorical question? Being the professional supermodel that Gisele is, I guess she did make these leggings look so fantastic that it never crossed my mind that they might not look as great on the rest of us. What could be a hit on the mark on Gisele could very much be a train wreck on those of us who are not 6 feet tall and 110 lbs. Oh well, they sure are great to look at. Check out the Vogue UK December 2011 issue to see Gisele in more of these great photo spreads. I tip my rainbow colored hat to photographer Mario Testino and stylist Lucinda Chambers.

We Are Augustines - Chapel Song

Make Your Own Engagement Ring

What a great idea! There is nothing more intimate and personal than not only choosing your future spouse's engagement ring but creating it with your very own hands. New York Wedding Ring shop offers a class that allows you to create your own custom made wedding ring with your very own hands using their materials and under the guidance of a professional goldsmith. Materials are also recycled which we LOVE! And don't worry, no previous experience required. So if you're thinking of popping the question, let them know how much you care by surprising them with a one of a kind piece of your creation or ask them to join you so you can both make each others ring! How romantic.....
