So I stumbled onto purl bee’s tutorial for a pompom cowl, and immediately set out to find some pompom trim to do this with because let’s face it, pompoms are the shit. After enquiring from shop to shop in the craft district (I don’t know if I can fully say that for Toronto, but it’s the closest thing I can think of) and dragging my bum back home, I managed to scrounge up 2 yards of this trim. 2 measly yards. 

If any toronto craft shop owners read this (…is there a way to express negative probabilities?) please please please, I’m asking you in my nicest voice possible, order some pompom trim! It’s not even like you’re taking on a massive amount of risk - I’m a guaranteed customer!

Those of you who’ve been reading Unconsumption for a while might recall our 2010 post about Milan’s Maison Moschino — the boutique hotel the Italian fashion house Moschino opened in 2010 in a retrofitted 1840 railway station — where some guest rooms are furnished with ball gowns as headboards

Turns out, the hotel offers additional Unconsumption-y design inspiration in the form of lamps made from dresses. (photo via DiarioDesign)
