Burberry Gold Buttons

Burberry took the rows-and-rows of pyramid studs trend and made it theirs by using gold buttons. Genius!

Holstein for Evisu

I love the masculine/feminine looks of these styles from Evisu, designed by Catherine Holstein. Perhaps a last bit of cold weather inspiration before we jump into spring.

Tattered Denim

True vintage denim, so cool. Definitely gives me some inspiration to use beat-up, bleached, and ripped denim on a guitar strap.

[This is probably the only time figure skating costumes will ever get featured on this blog- but this couldn't go without mentioning:]
I first noticed Evan Lysacek's skating because of his sleek, all-black costume that stood in stark contrast to the white ice. It stopped me in my channel-surfing tracks, and I've been interested ever since. Turns out, his costumes are designed by Vera Wang! I love the continuity across the different costumes, and that she has managed to incorporate some really dramatic details (strong shoulders, feathers, crystal snakes!!!) while still retaining masculinity and elegance- no easy feat. The black-on-black color scheme, and all the trims are definitely serving as some inspiration for new guitar straps.
AND last night he took the gold!

Anna, Stella

Anna Paquin in Stella McCartney at the Golden Globes. I loved this dress. Elegant and edgy at the same time. I especially like the irregular gold sequins and beading, which would be a new idea to consider for a guitar strap.
