It's been quite a while since I posted an Object of Desire. It might be that I've been more focused on the mind and the spirit than the body, but it's more likely because I blog all day about fashion for work here and here. However, these repurposed cashmere pieces by Linda Zimmermann are just too gorgeous and unique to go unmentioned. And, though certain monks and other religious types may beg to differ, the spirit (or at least my spirit) is more creative, contemplative, and productive when the body is being gently caressed by soft fabric.

Okay, so I would never buy these items I really, really desire. They're ridiculously expensive, of course, and it's against my personal values to spend that much on a fashion item(s). Drama Queen Boots, $468. Book Bag, $698.
Damn you, Anthropologie. I curse the day I ever set foot in your chandeliered, two-story pleasure dome. Maybe now that I've blogged about you, I can forget you...
I was trying to find these mouse angels that I'd read about somewhere--I thought they would make a great (and creepy) Christmas decoration for my apartment-- and fortuitously ended up on this site, which has objects reminiscent of the not-to-be-missed Museum of Jurassic Technology in L.A. and the fantastic Freakatorium in NYC.
