my go-to gift, and also my favourite to receive, is a print or a piece of art for my wall (or floor, or shelf, or wherever i can squeeze it in due to impending space issues). 20×200 has a great gift guide going at the moment, which i think is perfect for the holidays. they specialise in limited edition prints at affordable prices, and you get them framed too so it’s a sweet deal all round. these are some of my favourites in their shop.
i’ve been seeing some nice paper related goods around lately – notecards, prints, what have you. and since it’s almost the season to send someone a nice card or buy someone a nice print for christmas i thought i’d help you along with some suggestions.
let me explain to you how this usually goes. i start browsing through my trusted roll of street style blogs, opening my favourite looks in new tabs, then i usually have a gander at bukowski’s to see what new art they have on their books (the internet isn’t fun if you don’t multi-task) which leads to a couple of mmmm moments. mmm this is an interesting theme. mmm these look good together. and then blammo! mashup magic happens.
i change the pictures on my walls pretty regularly, and i’m gradually aiming to replace stuff i’ve printed out from the internet (yes, i’m on a budget – don’t judge) with real art made by talented people.
these dresses at jill stuart are quite possibly my favourite pieces from all the a/w 2011 fashion week shows so far
also love her fox & owl prints…
