I usually don’t dish about fashion here on decor8, but this post is a small exception simply because I think you’ll really enjoy it and because it hasn’t been covered yet in the blogs that I frequent. With the fashion exception for today, I’ll try to leave it to the fashionistas over at gkfa, buss buss, daily candy, shefinds, get sugar, glam, top button and style bakery to leave you in a fashion frenzy, they should keep you clickin’ for awhile!
However (ah-hem), I must point you to the Project Runway store for spiffy limited edition t-shirts designed by PR designers! Try to resist these perky tees, I dare you. Wayyyy cute.
I heart animated Andrae Gonzalo because he’s so feisty and vibrant; between Andrae and Santino, all PR episodes became known as ‘good television’. The t-shirt shown below, “Lighten up. It’s just fashion.” from Andrae is priced at $24.95. I also love the auf wiedersehen t-shirt and wonder what kind of reaction I’ll get this summer wearing it in Germany (!).
psst…you can even purchase PR stuff via auction here. You can also click on the designers name in the left column and you’ll enter their unique stores with goodies for sale or auction. I love the designers sketches that they’re auctioning, and would love to get my hands on a few for framing! I really like the sketch from Daniel V., and the Kara Janx kimono dress, and Santinos sketch, fantastique!

This pretty vintage-inspired patchwork pillow is super sweet and for $24 at urbans, you can’t go wrong if you want to add a touch of spring to your space. I just love the wall color, too, it’s like yummy raspberry ice cream. These photos are so pretty, I had to share them. I absolutely *love* how these people set up product shots, super lovely.

I love the concept of DIY cards, especially if the images are already there and all I need to do is add color. How easy is that? Pick up these adorable DIY cards at Bas Bleu and the SF MOMA store online for $9.98-$16.50, acrylic paints and brush included! Makes a neat parent child project, too!
If you really want a genuine DIY project, read this article describing the process to follow for creating hand-painted note cards yourself.

While visiting Magpie, a quirky fun little store in Somerville, I picked up a package of cards from 1201AM and thought I’d give them a shout out here on my blog since they’re so cute. 1201AM carries unique stationery sets that feature the works of graphic designer, Laurie Forehand.
What does 1201am mean?
“1201am represents the time, 12:01am. Also known as “the first minute of the day”; a notion of freshness, or an awakening of innovation and ideas. With most creative minds being more nocturnal creatures, the name also reflects a familiar time of day, or night, when most ideas hit.”
For the locals, you can find cutie pie cards from 1201AM at Magpie in Davis Square Somerville, and the rest of you can shop online at Trunkt. Each box of notecards contains 6 letterpress notes for $12 and Trunkt offers free shipping for orders over $25.
