About to be invented: The paragon of recycling- A Smith Corona Antique typewriter turned Waffle Maker.
A student at the School of Visual Arts (Chris Dimino) created this prototype that I hope will be available in stores. Not only does it make use of one of the most brilliantly utilitarian designs, but the waffles come out as keyboards! It's hi-tech and antiquated at the same time. Oh, and Yummy too!
They say to Measure twice, cut once. This inspired master designer Christian Louboutin, who created these amazing shoes. He can make a crisp utilitarian tool very sexy.
The minions (like me) who could only dream of owning a pair of Louboutins, can translate the trend more practically . Some cost-cutting measures of the fad- Brooches made of the tape (lianakabel.com) Stash all the $ you save from NOT buying the Louboutin's in a wallet by Undone Clothing at Etsy.

According to Nina Garcia and Michael Kors, hacky sackers are uber-stylish. I vow never to pick up my first ever issue of Marie Claire now that I see Nina Garcia's hippy crap, granola, bohemian mom-with-batik-stroller taste. You guys were WRONG! Retire to New Paltz and you can see that crappy Gretchen Jones style for the rest of your years.
