So you will not be surprised to read that I totally support the new endeavor called Juicy Canvas. They are right now having an Indiegogo campaign to raise capital for their venture and you can support them while supporting art by contributing.
The premise of Juicy Canvas is that you can put art on anything, like t-shirts and mugs.
Here is some info about their site and their Indiegogo campaign:
Artur Maklyarevsky and Deb Brugiati recently launched JuicyCanvas, the first art and fashion marketplace that allows you to remix trending art and print it onto beautiful daily-life products: American Apparel t-shirts, baby onesies, tote bags, hoodies, stretched canvases and more!
They’ve launched a fundraising campaign to take this project to the next level, build a mobile app and launch new prodcuts they've been testing for months. They are seeking the backing of art and fashion enthusiasts and they are offering amazing rewards if you support. Every little bit will help!
The husband-wife-baby trio are from Buenos Aires/New York, art lovers and strong believers of active, creative consumers. It's their vision to create a world where everything can be remixed, redesigned and personalized.
Support art and help us reach their goal!

An outfit consists of more than just the clothes and shoes you wear. It is also made up of accessories chosen to improve your appearance, signify the occasion, and complement your clothing. While this is more or less true of most the outfits you might wear, it is especially true of the outfits you select for special occasions. Evening gowns simply do not look their best unless a few carefully selected accessories are in place.
Fine jewelry is usually the accessory that women reach for first when they want to prepare for a special occasion. Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing your special occasion jewelry:
- Necklaces: Necklaces and chokers should be chosen to complement the neckline of your dress or blouse. Delicate chains and fine pendants often look their best when worn against the skin, above the cut of the neckline. Necklaces that obscure any details of the neckline, such as an artfully arranged cowl neck, should typically also be avoided. Avoid jewelry that tangles with your clothing or that catches on the fabric.
- Brooches: Wearing brooches is a fine art and it can be hard to select the one that coordinates perfectly with your outfit. Try to match the weight of the brooch with the weight of your clothing. A heavy brooch will pull at a lightweight blouse or bodice and may damage the fabric. Brooches can be used to decorate scarves, shawls, wraps, and other draped accessories.
- Bracelets: Bracelets and bangles can be safely worn with just about any outfit. Keep in mind that bracelets that may potentially catch or snag the cuff of your clothing should be avoided. Select your bracelets to match the formality of the occasion; your novelty bangles might look nice at work but they might not be dressy enough for a formal banquet.
- Earrings: The earrings you wear can help direct a viewer’s eyes toward what you want them to see. Do you want people to look at your face? Wear earrings that are set close to the body. Do you want to draw attention towards your neckline and the rest of your outfit? Tastefully dangling earrings can help accomplish this. This is why so many women choose dangling earrings when wearing formal evening dresses.
Purses, pocketbooks, and handbags
A woman’s purse is perhaps her most frequently-used accessory. These are designed to carry necessary items in style. The purses intended for evening wear and formal occasions tend to be very small and compact. You will only have space for a few essentials. Since formal purses are not intended to be as functional as a daily-use purse, you can select it primarily for its style.
Select a purse or pocketbook that is compact and easy to hold. Over-the-shoulder purses are not generally consider appropriate for use with evening gowns so select an item that you will feel comfortable holding for a long period of time. Unless you know for certain what outfit you plan to use this purse with, select one that is simple enough to coordinate with many outfits. Once you have a good fundamental formal purse then you can select a few others that are a little more stylish or look-specific.
Selecting the accessories you will wear to a formal event is in many ways just as important as selecting the clothing you will wear. The right accessories used in the right way will greatly enhance any formal ensemble.
