BEST DIAPER BAG EVER

Stylish, and functional. This diaper bag has plenty of pockets, zip compartments, even an insulated pouch for a bottle. This could easily become your purse and baby bag in one. /LINK

SCRIMSHAW KNIFE - CXXVI

Measuring 4 1/8" when folded this bone handled knife is perfect to keep on you for whatever situation you may encounter. The hand etched illustrations are fantastic too. I want one! /LINK

STICK SALAD SERVERS

In keeping my theme of tree-inspired design going, I thought I'd also post these stainless steel salad servers which use untreated wood as handles. Each pair is unique and can be purchased here. /LINK

DROP CROTCH SKINNY

I've been reading some controversy over Oak's drop crotch skinny jean lately. I honestly love it! Now I'd just like to talk to someone who's worn them. /LINK

IPHONE UNIVERSAL REMOTE

Now you can get rid of all those remotes that can never be found, or get mixed up as to what device they control. A great new iphone app combined with a small adapter which connects to your phone make one universal remote. The greatest part is the buttons are completely customizable. /LINK

LYNCH/DIOR

I can never get enough David Lynch. Dior's  cinematic campaign stars French actress Marion Cotillard. As part of this latest installment, Cotillard recites a poem written by Lynch inspired by Shanghai's Pearl Tower. /LINK

ECHO PARK INDEPENDENT CO-OP



Another great apparel shop in Echo Park I recently discovered is, Echo Park Independent Co-op.  Located in the historic Jensen Recreation Center, this collection of local and talented designers (Brian Lichtenberg, Howl, Mike Vensel to name a few) all share influences with the shops two founders, Rhianon Jones and Tristan Scott.  Check out their online shop here. /LINK

THOM PUCKEY

Thom Puckey pushes both sides of his obsession with the female nude in his marble and brass sculptures. His current projects pair the female nude and weapons, "chicks and guns." although his take on this common adolescent boy's theme takes a dark, lonesome, eerie turn somewhere along the way. /LINK
