There is nothing kitsch about these Cavallini & Co. calendars but I still adore them. They come in 16 styles, ranging from 'Travel America' (as shown to the left) and 'Japanese Woodblocks' to 'Classic Cats' and 'Vintage Posters.' Printed in Italy on heavy cream-colored paper, each spiral-bound calendar is 13" x 19" and retails for $21.95 USD @ Flax.
Hah! This looks just like something I wore as a kid. I looooove it! I'm still down with rainbows and unicorns - yeah, I said it! The sweatshirt is by Fred Flare and comes in 2 sizes (unisex size xs and s). It's $30.00 USD @ Fred Flare.
This gorgeous gold plated bracelet inspired by Alice In Wonderland is from one of my favorite lines, Disney Couture. It comes with an Alice dangle and retails for $100.00 USD @ 80s Purple.

The tokidoki for LeSportsac Collection is just too cute! I adore all the prints and bags and accessories offered, especially the Città print, as seen on the Luna Travel Bag to the left. The bag is 9.75 x 18 x 9.75". Each bag comes with a super cute mini doll, called a Qee. It comes in 2 other prints (Città Rosa and Foresta) and 2 solid colors (Fumo and Arancia) and retails for $210.00 USD.

Since I grew up in an Eichler, I have a special fondness for all types of mid-century architecture, particularily homes such as the one my parents own. There are quite a few design/architecture magazines out there that focus on the modern and post-modern, but my favorite of the bunch is Atomic Ranch Magazine. Yes, I am biased because it's heavy on Eichler stories, but it covers atomic era ranch houses too. A one-year/4 issue subscription is $19.95 USD.
Barbie turns pin-up girl! Wow, I'm so glad Mattel started this line. I really hope they make more of these dolls. This line of dolls is inspired by the classic 40s-50s pin-up of yesteryear. The Hula Honey Barbie Doll to the left was designed by Anna Choi and retails for $39.98 USD.
Way Out West Barbie Doll ($39.98 USD)

I am soooo not the tattoo type, BUT if I had to get a tattoo, I'd get a Sailor Jerry design, no question. His tattoo designs aren't just tattoos, imo, they are art. Luckily for Sailor Jerry fans, there is now a bunch of official merch, like tees, jackets, rings, barware, and purses, carrying his designs. One such item is this Cowgirl Tattoo Chain Wallet, which retails for $48.00 USD. It's 100% leather and comes in black.
I can't stop listening to this cd!!!! I have been a fan of Stacy Ferguson aka Fergie since the first time I saw her on star on Kids Incorporated. She's come a looooong way from those days, and she recounts her journey in some of the most moving songs on The Duchess, such as "Finally" and "Losing My Ground." The cd is on sale @ Amazon.com for only $9.72 USD right now!

This 4"x2" mirror from Bellissima looks like an item you'd find at an art deco sale. The top rotates to reveal the mirror. Not only do these little palm tree mirrors come in green, but you can also get them in red or yellow. They retail for $18.00 USD at Luna Boston. Quantities are limited!
I totally dig these handcuff chokers by Jessica Elliot. They come in either sterling silver or vermeil. The pricing for the chokers ranges from $168.00 USD to $228.00 USD. The company will make a 14k gold version for you if you email them. There are also matching earrings, bracelets, and anklets too! The Sterling Handcuff Choker on Heavy Chain is pictured on the left and is $204.00.
Vermeil Handcuff Earrings ($130.00 USD)
Vermeil Handcuff Bracelet ($160.00 USD)
Sterling Handcuff Anklet ($135.00 USD)
