pencil step 1

STEP 1. Wrap the pencil in a fun and colorful tape. There are lots of great washi tapes available— like this glitter one we are using!

pencil step 2

STEP 2. Cut a short length of strung feather (about and inch will do) and hot glue it around the eraser of the pencil. If you have loose feathers on hand, those can be glued on individually for the same effect, but with a bit more effort.

pencil step 3

STEP 3. Wrap more tape around the base of the feathers to cover the string parts.

pencil step 4

STEP 4. Dab a layer of white glue around base of the feather (we went down about an inch) and apply glitter.

STEP 5. Sharpen your pencil and get going! This pencil is good for taking diligent class notes, composing compelling essays, and (of course) the occasional doodle!

Fall/Winter 2016 Haute Couture Favorites

by Cristina Muñoz Brown on August 12, 2016


Here are our Fall/Winter 2016 Haute Couture favorites straight off this summer’s runway! Among our favorites are Chanel, Elie Saab, Ralph and Russo, Alberta Ferretti, Guo Pei and Alexandre Vauthier. We especially love the abundance of Ostrich Fringe used in Chanel and Ralph & Russo; always ultra feminine and delicate – to the edgy details of Black Rooster Hackle Feathers used in the Alexandre Vauthier designs. Guo Pei goes on to use Rooster Coque Tails in their stunning head pieces!
