Living the Lego Life!

It is amazing how many Lego inspired gadgets pop-up. One of the most adored toys by children is now used in adult life in all kinds of playful ways. At first Lego conquered the runway. It was first noticed at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2008 show. It appeared on the models as brooches, headband details, etc.

Lego style has apparently been absorbed by the furniture and home decorating industry, we spotted a sofa, a kitchen counter and table and chair legs.

This sofa is made up of several rubberized foam pieces shaped like Lego. If you are bored with the old design, simply re-arrange the various pieces to form a new look.

There is even a USB hub shaped like Lego..

The furniture above is made with actual Lego pieces.
We advice you to keep an eye on this trend.

Maybe you should even ask your mom to get you old Lego from the attic so you can get creative!

Kids these days…amazing

“I wore this last Saturday? I think? Or five years ago? Or something”.

” Shoes found in our basement (which is gross until I remember they are velvet and I love them.)”

and

“This one is from Saturday night at the Alexander Wang & Katie Grand party. Alex is like this little imp that I want to put in a box and build a little house”

These are all quotes from the 13 years young Tavi Gevinson. Tavi speaks and writes as if she has lived a whole life already but the truth is this young blogger is just a teenager. We love her as she is so nerdy in a cool way that she gets invited to the most influential fashion shows during the New York Fashion week. Some of the shows she attended last week were the Alexander Wang show and she was even seated in front row at the Marc Jacobs show. This little blogger has 1.5 million people visiting her blog per month. She happily trades in math, science and history classes to attend The New York Fashion Week or to fly over to London to pose for the cover of Pop magazine.
