Who can honestly deny love for plush toys? I think it is fair to say that those who do not have a love for plush toys are usually the ones who grow up to be psychopaths of some kind (or spinster librarians). Since I am not a psychopath (or librarian) I too have a love for plush toys – the cuter the better – and I would like to share with you a New Zealand lass who feels the same.

Jenna Adam started making adorable things to sell from home at the end of 2010 where she founded Chibi Crafts and Design. The most lovely of her creations are her ninja bears that come in many ever changing designs. a Lot of the ninja’s designs are inspired directly from videos games, anime, pop culture, et cetera, but are only hinted at their origins – an example would be the Super Red and Super Green ninjas who happen to have mustaches and be plumbers. Jenna Adam is currently working on her second series of bears with ten super-cute new designs that have been released so far.

I have ordered myself a Sir Ninja Bear from Etsy and I will let you all know how adorable it is when it finally arrives…

Less is more?

Upon having a sticky-beak on ALEXANDCHLOE I have come to conclusion that there’s nothing hip new casual designers like more than to take a nice plain tee-shirt or pair of jeans and then having at it with a packing knife and calling it a statement of fashion.

Now despite my cynicism and my raised eye-brow at the price, I have to say that some of this stuff IS pretty good. For example:
If a girl walked up to me at a party wearing the above, the words ‘DAAAMN’ (yes, if said correctly it would be two different words, hence the plural form of said word) would roll off my metaphorical tongue. While other things like:
…is simply gay. I don’t mean gay as in homosexual, I mean gay as in you did wear this, gay straight. celebrate or Atari, everyone, including those suffering from disabilities ranging from blindness to down syndrome, would point, laugh, and ensure all those around would be doing the same.

But in all seriousness, though:


I have just put the above two item on order (look, I couldn’t resist – please don’t hurt me, I’m delicate) and I don’t have a problem paying the $30+$85 price tag either.

Oh, while you are checking out the what’s what on the ALEXANDCHLOE, make sure to check out their clearance items – while there is no ‘hack and slash’ items like the ones mentioned above (at least not when I typed this blog entry), there are some pretty good looking items starting from $13.80 (again, at time of me typing this – obviously).


I want another trench coat.

I was going to buy one of these leather trench coats from Southbeach Leather:

…as they have some pretty impressive little gems for quite nice prices (considering that it’s 100% genuine leather) but I some how found myself quite distracted and looking on eBay where I found this sexy little number:
'TOP' SS- Long Coat Black(USSZ-M) - Top Class Season 2
…which I just fell in love with (and no wonder, look at it!). Nothing even remotely this stylish exists in my wardrobe, but for a mere AUD$88 including shipping it’s one hell of a bargain for one hell of an item. I would have bought the slightly longer wool version (that one is cotton) but I think I may be allergic to wool and should investigate that further before I go buying something that’s a wool blend and will cover most of my body.

Come to think of it, it’s probably for the best that I’ve bought this item as I already have a trench coat that turns heads as it is – I think it’s about time I aim to tone down my attire from now on.


Jeans > Other Pants?

Now this is the story all about how My life got flipped, turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute and I’ll keep it clean
I’ll tell you how I stopped wearing normal pants and started with jeans
I wore cargoes and straight pants where ever I was
as casual pants go I thought they were the ones, cause
long shirts, short shirts, tee-shirts so fine
until my pants were ripped up mother took this as a sign
]Powerhouse M & F[ is the store she chose
I tried on some jeans and what do you suppose
I looked damn good, and with a pair of new shoes
I was a hot mother flipper with nothing to lose
and as my other pants when into decay
I’ve been wearing nothing but blue jeans since that very day

That is EXACTLY how it went down – if anyone tells you otherwise they’re a liar and a thief and probably wear suspenders.

But, there is always a but (he-he-he, butt), upon started this blog – whenever I started it (keeping track of time just lets you know how badly you’ve wasted it so let’s live in ignorant bliss for a little while longer) – I thought to myself, why not wearing non-jeans in a casual sense. I own plenty of business pants as I wear them to work and look pretty spiffy doing so, but I cannot remember wearing anything other than jeans since that day in a casual environment.

As you have no picked up so far, that is my current challenge to myself and I plan on fulfilling it.

Minute two: it’s not going well, I look at all of these picture and I cannot see myself wearing any of them! What does one wear with casual pants? Do tee-shirts still work? How come all of these picture are from the hips down? I need fashion guidance you bastards!

Minute five: I’ve found a nice pair for $250+ – I hate you fashion world.

Minute six: these look good but apparently I’m supposed to wearing them with thongs and without a top. That’s all well and good but I don’t own any thongs nor is my chest in any way attractive (it hasn’t grown/developed since I was twelve -_-).

Minute ten: I think I’ve found some that I can work with :).

Minute fourteen: These were amongst the most popular (I’m starting to suspect that maybe what I want and what you people want are completely different things).

Minute twenty-six: It looks like the longer I look the more trollop I find. In lieu of my impending pants breakdown I’m going to back to my original pair and see how that works out for me :/. I’ll get back to you kids on how well it turns out.
