We are huge fans of Phin and Phebes ice cream. Not such big fans of this election. WTF. It’s like Mark Burnett was put in charge of running things. Ice cream has always made everything better. Nobody knows that better than these ladies. Partnering with Madewell, they took a stand and started the Phin and Phebes Pints of Positivity campaign. Show your colors. Join the movement. Wear some schwag with pride. Ohh, and don’t really vote ice cream. Please vote for one of the primary candidates we don’t need any more skewed election drama on poll day.

A poster of meat. What more needs to be articulated about this 18” X 24” carnivorous, educational, orgy. The 2 color screen print pops off the rich, thick 100lb Cougar Natural cover stock begging to be cooked. Alas, the tooth of the paper breaks the reverie every time. The delightful bi-product is a trip to the butcher. Hanging this meat poster in the kitchen is obvious as it doubles as a reference guide but we prefer it over our bed so our porterhouse dreams are met with ribeye mornings. Yank Marc Howell and Limey Luke Paisley have a great hand. Their other designs, and apologetic company name, seems to be most fitting for their work, current design MOST poignantly included.
I’ve been wearing Vans since I was 11. The resurgence of this brand into the mainstream made me smile something fierce. Then they went and did the unthinkable. Marry the classic slip on to a classic slice. If they say you can’t have your pie and wear it too, this just changed the rules. Vans Pizza Slip-ons are perfect for that midnight run to that randomly named pizza joint down the block. (if you live in NYC anyway). I bet you can get it to the point where all you have to do is point to your feet and Mike will dish you up a hot one.
The Renegade-avocado hits keep on coming. This time from LA designer, Hadron Epoch. We love their stationary and we LOVE their notebooks even more. Although we don’t really love the way they articulated their evolution. “Our goal is to create a sense of lifestyle for everyday adventurers who are inspired to look outside of their comfort zone for the best experiences in life.” We’re huge experience people. Adventure is our middle name. Comfort zones are for wimps, we agree. But, we yearned for a little more substance in those words. It did come in their craft so maybe we should just shut up and write in these beautifully bound, paper perfect, journals.
Last weeks avocado heavy line up got us to reshuffle the on deck folder and surface this find. MoguMogu food puns it out with the best of them. Wear this avocardio tshirt to the gym and not only own the cardio section but, I bet you score with that avocado toast loving, upper east side, brunch bitch on the elliptical you’ve been eyeing for weeks. Play it cute. MoguMogu would.
