First off, I will accept no judgements for the fact that I am blogging on my birthday! Despite the fact that today is my birthday, I have chosen to postpone birthday celebrations indefinitely. I had a lot of work to do, anyhow, so everything is business as per usual around the Hansen estate (yes, I've unilaterally decided that my studio apartment is now an estate -- that's my birthday present to myself, I suppose).

I did, however, delight in wearing this super comfy outfit all day. How AMAZING is this hand-deconstructed sweater, courtesy of the BraveGrrl shop?! She has an amazing blog and her Etsy is great. I recommend checking both out!

Also recently, I fell in love with this knits company called Gudrun&Gudrun (distributed by 100und1). It's designed by two Faroese women, who hail from the Faroe Islands (near Denmark???). The line is handmade, androgynous, and beautiful and made from eco-friendly organic fabrics. 

Beautiful, right? Here are some products off of their online shop:

Ugh, I love their stuff SO much. I want to wear it 24/7.

In other news, Triangley Triangle blog did an interview with me here! And I'm getting the hang of Twitter...slowly but surely.
