New Straps!

After a long hiatus, I am now making what I believe will be my last round of therine guitar straps. They will be plaid with vintage brass plates- I'm putting the pieces together now!

Early Elvis

Wow, an Elvis song I hadn't heard, and instantly love. And it came from The Walkmen, so what could be better? Such an inspiration.

Love the colors and mix of fabrics in this pic. For guys, the red bandana is pretty classic if you can work it in. I think they could work pretty well on a guitar strap.

Burberry Resort 2012

Totally in love with Burberry's Resort 2012 line. Everything about it- colors, shoes, and the hats! Very inspiring for the coming months.

Wow, can't believe I haven't posted in 3 months. But, life is busy in a lot of good ways. Meanwhile, this pompadour is amazing, and I love the whole look. Inspired!

The Walkmen Live

Its been awhile, so I thought I'd put up new pics of The Walkmen, who are always inspiring to me. Love the colors and positioning in these.

Estate Jewelry

Really love this chunky, vintage-y estate jewelry from Lulu Frost. If you're going to go for glitz, might as well go full out, right? Definitely inspiring some ideas for new glam guitar straps.

Strokes- Best Vids

This video perfectly matches the feeling of the song, especially near the end. Really cool cropped shots and compositions.

Love this one- all white outfits getting ruined by black water = rock n' roll.

The one that started it all. I remember how completely different this video was from the rest of MTV at the time. 10 years old already, doesn't feel like it!

Vintage Strokes

The Strokes have an album, Angles, coming out on Tuesday, and I'm really excited for their new stuff. These pics of earlier times are pretty full of guitar strap inspiration for me. Is Julian wearing a hawaiian shirt? Who else can work that into this kind of look?

More Ties

Love these ties from the groom lounge by rue magazine at Hitched. Such amazing color combos. Definitely inspiring for men's guitar straps.

Recently seeing (and loving) Black Swan got me interested (again*) in both ballet and feathers. While I can't really imagine a successful combination of ballet and guitar straps, I can think of many ways to use feathers on guitar straps. And fortunately, I just came across this Etsy shop- KIMONOS, which is an amazing resource for them. I'll definitely be buying some of their feathers to add onto new guitar straps in 2011. I can't stop looking at their amazing photography- these pictures look like frame-able works of art.

*check out this feathered guitar strap of mine created earlier this year, now on sale!

Vintagey Epaulettes

A long time favorite detail of mine, these epaulettes are pretty cool. The colors, rugged fabrics, and metal buttons are all inspiring for some details on my guitar straps.
