What I Wore: Friday / Instagram Friday! 10/12/12

Today it has finally cooled down enough for me to wear my favorite Anna Sui dress you may remember from a ways back. The fun touch to update the look are these badass earrings made from recycled aluminum can pieces! The earrings are new in our shop at CRAFTED at the Port of Los Angeles. They come in two different sizes one with a single circle as well as circle drop-down, dangly earring style.

These earrings are very exciting because that means the holidays are coming and we are making Reinbeers!!! Our Reinbeer ornaments have proven to be quite popular over the years and they're always something that symbolize for us that the holidays are on the move. This year is the first year we're offering these earrings which are made from the scrap aluminum can pieces left over from the Reinbeer ornaments.

Above is an Instagram picture I shot of the texture of the can pieces while making the earrings.

Today the Space Shuttle Endeavour begins its slow journey on land to the LA Museum. (this shot was when it landed in LA a few weeks back) The shuttle being on route to its new permanent home is a massive feat for the city because it is HUGE!  It will make the traffic here in LA crazy, but it will make for a great site if you want to check it out before it gets to it's final destination of the LA Museum. For the news story and further details there is a full post here.

Gypsy is upset she will miss the shuttle "parade"...

I really wish I could go watch the shuttle and take some analogue pictures - I finally got my MAJOR order of film in and I stocked up on a ton of black & white film that would be great to shoot the shuttle with. For a look at my adventures going back to film check out some of my shots here. 

I have escaped my studio and left it in complete chaos! Oh no!!!!

Good thing I keep a tidy workspace at CRAFTED ;) I can escape my mess and get to work! Kevin is having his Birthday next Tuesday on October 16, however I think we might start celebrating early tomorrow with a barbecue with friends after the fun dies down at CRAFTED. If If you are still looking for weekend plans there's lots of fun tomorrow at CRAFTED! There is an event featuring Marissa Lynch where she will demo making upcycled T-shirt totes and host a book signing. More details on the event and project here.

Also, I definitely suggest if you're looking for movie to go to this weekend to go see Looper. Even if sci-fi isn't your thing this movie is an action-packed roller coaster filled with adventure. A fine example of a movie both Kevin and I rather enjoyed & I strongly recommend seeing that movie if you are interested.

TAFN, Hope you have a stellar weekend!!!
