Friday's ffffound

I just ffffound Paul Gabor's work, who was a Hungarian typographer and designer with an extremely distinctive graphic style.  He created strong imagery for magazine covers, books and posters; very bold, brightly-coloured and Bauhaus. 

A selection of his work was recently featured on Le Monde's design journal, Design & Typo le blog to bring his portfolio to wider audience.  I'd never heard of him but boy, oh boy am I a fan.

Red Dress #2

Rather worryingly, this is my second post in a week about red dresses.  I already own at least five, but there's clearly a deep burning desire for more...  Today I am wearing this gorgeous sailing-inspired red polo dress from MUSTO.  I don't sail (yet - I'm going to Cowes Week next week so I will sail) but I've got enough nautical-inspired fashion to pretend that I do.  If you like all things marine/coastal/ahoy there! too, snap it up too.

A timeless casual dress with a sailing-inspired motif and flattering fit. Whether to head out for lunch with the girls, a picnic with the family or throw over your bathing suit at the beach, this really is a wardrobe must have.

Pencils: Mini Sculptures

Just discovered these fantastic photos on Telegraph.co.uk - artist Dalton Ghetti creates miniature masterpieces carved from pencil tips, using only a sewing needle, razor blade and sculpting knife.  Ghetti is a carpenter and has been making his tiny graphite carved sculptures for about 25 years. 

The alphabet, all carved from 26 pencil tips

He must be an incredibly patient man, with an incredibly still hand. Beautiful.

Oasis Red 60s Bow Shift Dress

Oasis just sent out a newsletter featuring this beauty.  Red is always a winner, mini-dresses a firm favourite of mine and the elegant nipped in waist, delicate frilled collar and cuffs and 60s vintage-inspired influence all make this girly shift dress the star of the new collection. Mine.

Skullcandy TI Brown/Gold

Well these are clearly the best headphones in the world...  Skullcandy's TI Brown/ Gold offering retails at precisely £71.96.

Narcissus was so in love with himself, that he drowned in a pond while trying to embrace his own reflection. The reflection is rumoured to have been wearing a pair of Skullcandy Ti headphones.

My trusty Sennheiser cans died on me a few weeks ago. I will soon be strutting down the street hip-hop video stylee with a ghetto gold spring in my step; thank you Skullcandy.

Sequined Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie looked stunning as a little brunette Barbie at last night's premiere of her upcoming movie Salt, in Los Angeles.  Black + strapless + sequins + high hemline + nude killer heels = failsafe route to glitz whilst still keeping it real in black.

Also, very pleased Brad shaved the salt and pepper beard.  'Bout time; they're back to their smoking hot best.
