I love this jacket, I'm totally getting this for my BDay! I just wish I had some cute Coach™ rain boots to go with. It can be worn 3 ways, pre-natal, post-natal and with baby in sling.
It's perfect for rainy, winter days in SF.
Japanese Weekend is the most stylish maternity I've found yet.

From my email to your screen! Check out what the crew at Worship Worthy has been working on for the ladies. The geometric leggings and sequin hot pants are killah. Definitely worth a look. LOOK BOOK HERE!
WORSHIP WORTHY INTRODUCES HOLIDAY 08 COLLECTION
The buzzed about small-run collection employs bold graphics with a streetwise fashion sensibility to visually unite religious elements, homages to Vivienne Westwood and Yves Saint Laurent, and the fuss-free style of today’s urban woman. Designer Jennifer Wannarachue designed the dark, sexy collection with the intent to be mixed and layered, with every piece matching and easy to wear: “Our tees are sophisticated and sexy, can be dressed up or down, and are perfect for layering with any leggings or bodysuit ". Discharge and water-based print applications are utilized with the intent of preserving a soft feel to the collections graphics.
Holiday 2009 also marks WW’s collaboration with doll maker, Sara Lanzillotta of Devout Dolls who handcrafts and paints each doll herself. “The 2-headed dolls are for non-girly girls”, Wannarachue explains, “they’re sweet and twisted and fit in perfectly with the Worship Worthy world.” The set of two double-headed dolls and a masked dominatrix are made to order, available in limited quantities.
Alright y'all. I haven't been posting because in true form I forgot the power cord for my computer in another state and didn't have much access to computers for the past few days. Also, I shut off the internet in my place since I'm moving outta Philly at the beginning of January and haven't been there lately. So, the blog will still stay true to the content, but as the primary writer, I will be comin' at ya based in a different area. Plenty of visits will follow, for sure. New year, new moves, same love. So, the past week has been jam packed with friends, holiday parties, Sparks sake bombs, dancing in the best clubs, arm wrestling, and engagements with whisky. Tis the season! So, let's get it in.

Bob and Barb's. America's finest dive bar. Home of the Special. Land of the Specialists. Tonight, the host of the best game of Bingo in the city of Philadelphia.
The red wall is down! So there is plenty of room for yourself and friends to congregate and fight over raunchy porn, brown bag prizes, and if your lucky, Bob Dix artwork. Ah, and lets not forget the food of Chef Lucky. The man puts together a fine mac and cheese.
OMOI TURNS TWO!
PARTY TIME, EXCELLENT! (Air guitar Wayne and Garth)
This year the celebration with commence with a Gothic Lolita fashion show, from our own, Toni Turner. She's responsible for all of the headbands and hair clips on the main table. This holiday we took inspiration from Yoyogi Park and the Harajuku neighborhood were girls basically just sit pretty and pose for photographs. Ambitious in execution yet delicate and doll-like. A perfect combination for killin' it! Omoi is now carrying Kera magazine! Much more punk, goth, loli than the mags already in stock. Extreme hairstyles, makeup, nails, shoes! A kaleidoscope of fashion!
There will also be light refreshments and 20% off your entire purchase! Perfect time to treat yourself to that Nooka watch you've been eyeing or a pair of handcrafted earrings straight from Japan. There are plenty of items for both men and women, even though Omoi tends to get reputation of being a super girl store. Despite the rep, all of the girls in the store definitely have a tomboy streak in them and therefore stock some BOSS merchandise.
Check the Barbary Coast series by SuperFishal for Upper Playground. Jeremy Fish put together a collection inspired by the hoodlums, harlots and heroes of the Bay Area. It features a sturdy metal cigarette case, a brushed gold lighter, sketchbook, leather belt with brass buckle, and a soft felt fedora. Recently Fish and the illustrious Miss Van co headlined a show at the Fifty24SF Gallery in the Lower Haight section of San Fransisco. Check out pictures from the jam packed show, HERE.
Another dope item for the gift giving folk, Liz calls these, "professional shot ware." HEARD!
So far the bear seems to be the most popular. Personally, I think the rhino needs to come home with me. They retail for $28, and are basically indestructible.
Plenty of rad items. The only way you will know is if ya come in and let us show you around!
A short message from Miss Liz:
Thank you, customers and friends, for a great time! We've learned so much, jammed tons of stuff into a tiny space, featured talented local artists, fought crime, been featured in magazines, stocked ultra-rare collector items without even knowing it (remember the Alex&Chloe Coco Chanel necklace collection and Le Magnifique's "Le Chat" tee?), and best of all - met tons of new people along the way.
Who- OMOI! Hosted by Liz and crew
What- Birthday Party and Fashion Show
When- Thursday December 11th 5-9pm
Where- 1608 Pine Street, Philadelphia, PA

Stephen Sprouse was a pioneer of mixing uptown sophistication with the abstract ambition of downtown fashions and making the New York fashionistas take notice. Well known for using custom screen print methods, graffiti, and Day Glo bright prints to outfit the early eighties. I'm sure most of you can recall the collaboration that he did with Louis Vuitton in 2001, remember those graffiti logo bags that were knocked off in your hood? Yea, that was Stephen Sprouse. Once again, LV creative director, Marc Jacobs, is utilizing the print for a fresh round of bags, sneakers, shoes, sunglasses, clothing, and other accessories. He also posed nude for the January issue of Harpers Bazaar which was shot by Terry Richardson, son of the legendary fashion photographer of the New York City era Sprouse was involved, Bob Richardson.
Wouldn't it be sweet if these graphic leggings could glow in the dark?
The release of this project coincides with the “Rock On Mars” retrospective that will be taking place at Deitch Projects from January 8th, and the release of “The Stephen Sprouse Book”
Along with the release of the product, Louis Vuitton will launch welovesprouse.com, a website dedicated to the artist, showcasing interviews with people that knew Sprouse.
These sneakers will be featured in the collection. Colorful, gold, and highlighter yellow? Yes, please.
