Fashion Tribes

A few months ago, bloggers posted some pics of designers unknown to me, Stella Valentic & Julie K├ęchichian from the Hyeres Festival. I was immediate drawn to their heavily beaded t-shirt dressings inspired by the african Ndebele people. Since EVERYBODY is doing ethnic these days, I kinda forced myself to forget about them.
However, I stumbled upon these Muany pillows at anthropologie a few weeks ago, and I kept visiting them, deciding wether or not I am really over the whole ethnic trend.
well, it turns out I am not. I decided they are actually going to be perfect for Scott's & My new apartment. My new purchase inspired me to go through stylebubble's archives and re-discover S&J's work.

Inferior Vena Cava

someone over at Old Navy was just as much a fan of Vena Cava's border print from their fall '07 collection as I was. Despite the obvious KO (knock-off), I bought the dress, because, hey, I only have to work one night at the art museum to pay for it, instead of like, two whole months for the original.
