Styling and Profiling with Junkprints: Summer 2010

For a moment just forget the fact that it is the beginning of hurricane season and remember that summer has unofficially begun (Summer Solstice is on June 21, 2010). Why not slatter on some sunblick, showoff those gams, and celebrate summer with Junkprints. *Shameless Plug Coming............................................................................... .............................................................. ....................................now* Below are a few hot items to make you look cool in the summer:
We all know you had second and third servings of the mac and cheese on Memorial Day. You worked hard for that donk, so why not show it off in what are soon to be your "Fave Shorts". The are made with seersucker fabric, trimmed in a custom junkprints pok-a-dot fabric with bright pink thread.
Sorry, Justin but we brought sexy back with these authentic vintage Cazel Collection shades. Coming straight from a closed factory in Germany these sunnies have not been in production in over twenty years and are in great condition. There is only one is stock. Can you say stunner?
Matilda is the greatest friend you will ever have. She compliments your style and deals with all your heavy baggage. This 100% cotton canvas tote bag has plenty of room to carry everything you need when you are on the go.
Reminisce on the days when even guys wore short shorts with this tank inspired by old track jerseys. Even if you were always the last kid to get picked for dodgeball at least your grown now and can look the part of a real athlete at your school reunion. Atheletic ability not included.
No outfit is complete without a fly pair of shoes. We've teamed up with Keds and ArtsProjekt to create these Royal Hi-tops for you. Sorry fellas, but these sneaks are only available in women's sizes. Then again, what you do on your own time is none of our business. Werq!

SPEED BROACHES

For the last few months I've been walking around with hot wheels and doll shoes in my pockets. I came across a huge lot of vintage hot wheels and decided to make 'girly' things out of them, but every time I sat down to get started I ended up playing with them and forgetting what my task was so they would end up in my pockets. I've finally got the first batch of these broaches done. They are all one of a kind.

Jellies v.s. Crocs

Remember when you were a little girl and rocked Jellies on your feet?  Yeaclear-jelliesh, I just brought it back and aged most of the people reading this. For those of you left out in my fashionable dust, Jellies were shoes made out of PVC plastic that came in a variety of colors. Now, I’m not going to get into an in-depth history of them, but I will say that they were very popular in the 1980s and have been recently resurrected.

Every girl I know had a pair of Jellies. Some girls had a matching Jelly for each outfit. Personally, I remember having clear glittery Jelly sandals. Now, you may be wondering why I’m bringing this up. Is it because I’m about to head into finals week at school and am beginning to feel nostalgic about my youth and simpler times? No. Okay maybe a little.

Actually, this topic stemmed from a conversation I had earlier today with Chanel. When we’re not talking about our ideas for curing cancer and ending global warming we like to delve into more important issues like the weather and 1980s pop culture. We came to the conclusion that Crocs are the millennium’s answer to Jellies.

Let’s make it clear. Crocs will never ever be able to be as cool as Jellies. I don’t care how comfortable they are. Sure, Jellies make your feet sweat, but at least you’re sweating with style. And yes, sometimes Jellies make your feet blister, but gosh darn-it “pain is beauty”. At least, that’s what my aunt said before she cut my hair off in second grade, but that’s a whole other story.

Crocs are on the forefront of the hideous yet comfortable shoe trend (I’m coming for you next Uggs). Crocs are also virtually indestructible which means that I couldn’t burn them if I tried. They are like cockroaches to me. So, should I give up on this rant because I know that they won’t go away anytime soon? No, because the Crocs company has recently gone out of business. See, recessions aren’t that bad after all. Now, Jellies are a classic made out of plastic. Crocs, on the other hand are shoes that I can’t stand. I think that about sums up my moment of nostalgia.
