Letterpress Business Stationery with Swarovski Crystal

Our two-color letterpress stationery with a Swarovski crystal detail.

We recently completed a job for a new business, Red Soles Reborn. Crystal, the owner of Red Soles Reborn, takes shoes and gives them a completely new look with the use of different size and color Swarovski crystals. Like the Swarovski crystals we use on our stationery, she applies every single one by hand, one at a time. While her specialty is Christian Louboutin shoes, she can transform any shoes from ordinary to extraordinary. Our favorite part? While Crystal can re-create an existing shoe, the real fun is commissioning her to make something completely original!

Since Red Soles Reborn is a luxury service, Crystal was looking for stationery for her business that reflected her high end product. She came to us at Pressed to create something special. Working with her website designer, a logo was created and from there we designed her suite. Crystal ordered both flat printed and letterpress pieces. To enclose with each order, beautiful flat printed “Thank You” cards in a Pantone color to match the famous red soles, with plenty of room for Crystal to write to her client. And for follow-up notes, promotions and reminders for her past clients, luxe, folded, 2 color letterpress cards printed on our 100% cotton 118 lb paper, finished with what else but a tiny Swarovski crystal. You can check out more of our letterpress stationery and wedding invites at

Wedding Dresses for the Non-traditional Bride – Rick Owens Spring/Summer 2011

A simple strapless gown.

This morning I was just wandering around the web, going to some of my favorite blogs, and came across these photos on zoot magazine from Rick Owens’ Spring/Summer 2011 collection. I love these dresses! So modern, so elegant and the hair accessories are great, too.

Love the shoes!

Would it have been ok for me to wear this to my city hall wedding?

Melissa Shoes

I love my Melissa shoes! I have been looking at these two styles for quite sometime now…

The Melissa Patchuli shoe.

Melissa + Jean Paul Gaultier

However, I now spend my days working from home. My typical outfit consists of yoga pants, old t-shirts and slippers and I rarely make it farther than the gym or grocery store. Back in my previous life, when I worked in an office, commuted to the city and actually found myself having human interaction on a frequent basis, I would have bought these shoes in a second!

Low resolution…and it looks good!

I love these shoes! They are called Low Res, by United Nude. This shoe was was created by digitally scanning an object into a 3D computer model and regenerating it into various resolutions. Architect, Rem Koolhaas, is the creative director and it shows, as the shoes certainly do have an architectural and sculptural feel to them.
