seahorses and such

I find myself interested in unusual things quite often. More accurately, the “why” of usual things. The relation of moon phases and mood swings, timing of life and death, and… seahorses. This oceanic creature, often considered cute and friendly, appears sewn onto toddlers clothing or splashed across the wallpaper of beach houses. Let me tell you, there is no other creature in this world like a seahorse. It’s actually a fish, they are bad swimmers, and the male seahorse gives birth, just to name a few fun facts. Moreover, they’re completely artistic-looking. So…. you can imagine my delight upon finding the Helmut Lang Seahorse Blazer don the floor at Nordstrom this season. It’s got powers.
