Whoa. Really? Wow. English Russia taking the body jewelry/chain apparel DIY situation to the next level. I hope this girl is laughing on the inside...

THE AUDIUM

Liz
I should have just titled this post "TRIPPY" and left it at that. The Audium is a sound theater consisting of a room that really looks like it belongs in a spaceship filled with hundreds of speakers. You sit in darkness and listen to a multitude of sounds whizzing around you from all different angles. I'm not even going to try and explain it. You just have to see for yourself. I think it's one of San Frncisco's best hidden treasures. Don't forget the doobie.

COFFEE BREAK

Liz
This thing...I remember thinking it was Pac-Man's car and wanting one as a kid. This one had pulled up and parallel parked in the red zone right by the coffee shop...like maybe Pac-Man had to run in real quick and get his coffee. Or maybe one of those M&M's with white gloves and skinny legs drives it? Doesn't anyone else wonder how these things happen?

HOT LIPS

Liz
Oh my god, this post was really just going to be about the cool lips clutch I saw on Delightful's blog, and then it morphed into this whole crazy thing! What can I say except red lips will always be cool. They've inspired countless designers, photographers, artists, and musicians, and here's just a small portion of my favorite lips images.

YSL really red lipstick. It just looks so lethal. Marc Jacobs lipstick pen. If you don't know what this is, then I'm not telling you. But it's not really lipstick.Icons and logos. There's so many.Delightful has this clutch...which I think I am in love with. It prompted all of this investigation into lips shaped bags.And Lulu Guinness makes one too, Vintage enamel red lips pin with rhinestone teeth. So pimp.The creepy but awesome jewelry by Margaux Lange, all made from Barbie parts.Marilyn lips sofa manufactured by Gufram of Italy.And the Mae West one by Salvador Dali, 1938. Or Man Ray?And this 80's lips phone, which you can buy here for $53. I wanted it really bad but got one of those clear phones instead. It was a toss up between the two, but now I wish I'd gone for the lips.Lips sunglasses here.Samskiart on Etsy - embroidered kissesWax lips? I think they are kind of gross but we've all goofed off with them at some point.Kid Robot sweatshirtTom Ford for YSL blazerTom Ford for YSL shoes with enamel lips, 2003.Colette x Married to the Mob x Reekbok lip sneaks.Nike Kisses hi-tops

SCARY FACE IN A WEIRD PLACE

We passed this completely horrifying Walgreen's window the other night, and I think I shrieked really loud. What more can I say? This is a totally fucked window ad. Thank God somebody is too cheap or lazy to fix this.
Thanks for the photo, Sarah Franko!
