Latest Links

Articles, photos, blogs, art and other generally awesome things I've found on the internet lately.


Not ugly shoes from Twins for Peace (via Frankie magazine). I love the idea of Toms: for every pair you buy, they give a pair of shoes to a child in need. Let's face it though - they're ugly. No matter how many cool people wear them and make them cool by association, they are not good looking shoes. Twins for Peace have a similar concept, and look cool.

"Each TWINS collection is associated with a Shoe Project that we establish in partnership with an NGO in a developing country. Each time you wear you TWINS, you act as a TWINS Ambassador. The TWINS you bought have financed the donation of a second pair of shoes to a needy child. The second pair of shoes are produced in the Shoe Project's country, as a way to stimulate its economy. Each pair of shoes donated is tailored to the needs of the children."

Draw! Pilgrim sells beautiful prints and also has a great blog

Should Be On The Nanny photoshops Fran Drescher's head onto current fashion photos that look like the sort of outfits Miss Fine used to wear on The Nanny. I don't think I need to explain why that's awesome.

I love these photos of Michelle Phillips of The Mamas and The Papas (from theredtelephone)




Kate and William looked gorgeous on Armed Forces Day last week (via What Kate Wore)

For next time - what's the best thing you've found on the internet lately?

Everytime you make a new post I say to myself before I open it: "For my effing viewing pleasure.."

Cute post!! I agree Kate and Wills look very spiffing, and those Toms are awesome, what a great idea. :)

Hahaha I agree about Toms. Even though the cause is fantastic and CSR is core to their brand...they look horrible on my feet.

Love the Twins for Peace shoes! My biggest problem with TOMS isn't the look but the design- they make my (and everyone else I've talked to) feet stink! Gross. Will have to try out these others kicks though, they look great!

whitemaskgirl said...

Great things you found, and I agree with you that the Tom shoes are ugly...but the truth be told, I did not liek those either. To sporty for my taste. The best thign I found on the internet so far is the pom pom circus. I am kind of loving those photos. http://www.pompomfactory.com/#1120650/pom-pom-circus

THANK YOU! I simply can't believe all the love the Tom's get. (I know, I know, it's a good cause. But REALLY? I just can't get past how they look like the "yellow front" dime store shoes of my youth.)You are the first person that I've found that feels like I do!

Raquel said...

I really like the shoes, much better than Toms I agree!
