Something happened yesterday. I found graphic tees that made me want to wear graphic tees again.
Blue Scarabs tee, $38. Putty Super Hero, $42. Both available at moonblood.net
Each shirt is hand-printed and hand-dyed. Each will make you stand out in crowd for having impeccable taste and kick ass style.
The brand is MoonblooD. The owners are an adorable couple that go by the names Leo and Amy. Amy has a background in textiles and loves fashion. Leo background is in computer science. An odd pairing, perhaps, but a perfect one. Just look at how sick these shirts are!
Scarlet Feather Flight tee, $42 at moondblooD.net
The Feather Flight tee comes in a couple of colors, as do a few of their
other designs. This one in particular really stands out to me. The print really pops from this scarlet background. The Native American inspired drawing gives it a tribal appeal without making you feel like you're wearing something that you don't know about. You know what I mean? I see people in distressed Pink Floyd tees because they look cool, yet these people know nothing about Floyd (don't even get me started on that). They have just the
right amount of artistry that shows where the inspiration comes from without any fakeness.
As you can see above, they make shirts for boys, too. That is great, huh?
Men's Tut $38. Mauve Super Hero $38. Both at moonblooD.net
I love that they have tees for boys that don't look like every other tee you see. They have this artistic kick that makes them really different. They also aren't cluttered and overbearing like a lot of what's out there right now, either.
When they say, "Amy’s solid fashion background coupled with Leo’s European sensibilities give MoonblooD tee’s a unique flair." They are totally right.
Go support these awesome designers at moonblooD.net.
Package from Charlyn Koo.
I opened a package. Inside, I found a parchment paper envelope tied in brown satin ribbon. After removing the ribbon and opening this envelope, my breath was taken away by what was inside. Beautifully designed cards that are suitable for almost any occassion.
Cards from the Glitzy & Golden Collection at charlynkoo.com.
I actually don't know where to begin with this review. When I said my breath was taken away, this was not an exaggeration: I gasped when I saw the beauty of these cards. They are rich and well made. They stand out. The designs are completely unique and completely gorgeous, even frameworthy.
Tree card from the Glitzy & Golden Collection at charlynkoo.com
The first collection of cards I saw was from the Glitzy & Golden collection. Each card is rich in color with gold foil designs that are feminine, yet strong.

Inside isn't just blank paper, it's another sheet of paper with little flecks of color- this makes me think this paper is recycled, though it doesn't look or feel that way. It's perfectly smooth and very easy to write on.
The Glitzy & Golden collection from Charlyn Koo is absolutely stunning. Each design shimmers and sparkles with metallic yumminess and strong femininity.
Autumn After Rain collection from charlynkoo.com.
The next collection from Charlyn Koo that I have the honor of reviewing is the Autumn After Rain collection.
Koi Card from the Autumn After Rain collection at charlynkoo.com.
I can't even begin to tell you how much
I love this collection. It is colorful, imaginative, evocative, and ethereal. Really, it's inspiring. The combination of colors, it's subtle impact- these cards are
true works of art.

Aside from the stunning exteriors of each card in the Autumn After Rain collection, there are interiors that are just as thoughtful. I never thought I could open a card and be impressed, but I was with these cards. Each is different, but equally as gorgeous.

You will love it!
