octopus - boygirlpartyI stumbled upon boygirlparty.com at work today, and let’s just say it was love at first sight. Susie Ghahremani’s website is filled with adorable art, jewelry, clothing, paper goods and more, all featuring her unique style of animals and plants.  I’m in love with anything owl or octopus-related right now and am completely crushing on the Socktopus.  It’s an octopus. That knits. Awesome. She’s also got a neat blog and a band called Snoozer and is an all-around creative, crafty girl. You should check out her site, sign up for her mailing list,  and maybe buy a few things for you and the people you love.


truly-fallen-imageFasten your seatbelts, people, as this week’s Shop of the Week is a little bit risque’. OK, not really, but it does make it easy to dress up parts of yourself that would normally be ignored. Truly Fallen makes gorgeous handmade accessories that look like they’re straight out of a 1920’s burlesque house. Their pasties are like tiny works of art, and the amount of work they put into their projects shows in every piece they make. For those not into accessorizing their lady parts, they also have an amazing selection of hair clips and feathered hair pieces. I’m completely coveting the red scrollwork bobby pins right now, as a matter of fact. I wish I had known about this shop this summer when one of my best friends got married – these pasties would be the perfect bachelorette party gift. Go check them out and get yourself or someone you like something special!
