New York has always been one of the biggest fashion hubs in America. They host fashion week every year, and there are always the trendiest people walking the buzzing city streets. Its easy for desires to gain inspiration just by looking out the windows of their studio apartments. So who is the next big designer? Who is setting trends and taking names? The answer is Susan Young… the creator of Launch, ready to wear fashions that she makes using her own textiles and designs. Her overall sale is iconic, relating to the 60′ and 70’s era in a way that also speaks to right now. Her creations are beautiful and she puts a lot of love into her work, stating that her fashion are a “mixture of art and fuction”. I fell in love with her collection for 2015 and found out that she is funding it through Kickstarter, hoping to succeed in time for this years fall season. If you would like to learn a little more about this seasons collection, visit her Kickstarter page : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1247261131/launch-by-susan-youngs-fw15-collection-needs-your?ref=discovery.

For those who have never been to Memphis’s Beale street, you’re missing out on some of the best BBQ nachos that I personally have ever tasted. When you walk in to B.B. Kings Blues Club the first thing that hits you is blues history. The pictures of musicians past and sounds of chatter from the street and bar are as intoxicating as the smell of the BBQ that makes your mouth water instantly. The decor is dimly but invitingly lit and carved woodwork makes up the seating in the entire restaurant. Of course, it is Beale street and you can get alcoholic beverages served in a signature B.B. King Club glass. The names of the drinks behind the bar make you want to go in for a Motown Margarita. The best thing about the club (besides the nachos) is the awesome wait staff. They take care of you so well and our server had a wonderful attitude. All in all it was a great experience and I recommend getting to Memphis ASAP to get you some good B.B. Kings Club BBQ!

Looking through my twitter feed I happened across an amazing digital artist, David Bridburg (@davidbridburg). I was looking through his website: http://www.bridburg.com and he explains that he uses Photoshop to “shape, shade, and configure several images into artwork”. And he does an amazing job! So I got in touch with him and found out about http://fineartamerica.com a website that allows artists to sell their artwork and prints, and the site is crazy easy to navigate. Most of the prints I saw featured to purchase were also inexpensive which is a huge plus, most were under $20!
So of course after I found out about David I had to share, digital artistry is far too under rated, though it is proving itself to be the art of this generation. I really love David’s website, as well as fine art america, both prove to be worth the look around….hint hint readers, get on the web and get browsing because you can find some incredible artwork.
Etsy.com is an online store set up with separate shops, each with their own sellers, selling homemade or unique products. Browsing etsy is super easy ( it has a great search engine) and the shops on etsy are always neatly laid out.
Searching through the site I came across one shop in particular that struck my fancy so I decided to reach out to the shop owner and feature this unique shop on our blog. Below is a link to Daintygeekery an etsy shop that sells handmade earrings in the shapes of your favorite characters. These are just a few of the selections from the shop and all shown are under $10! How exciting is that!? These earrings make great gifts for others or are an amazing add to any collection.
Here is a link to the shop so you can have a look for yourself, remember that what is shown is only a small selection of what daintygeekery has to offer. Also look around on etsy.com and discover other shops that you may enjoy!
