Ed Hardy + Lisa Frank
So I was in Target the other day walking past the office supply aisle, which I have to force myself not to walk down because I LOVE office supplies! On one of the end-of-aisles there were these colorful folders that caught my eye because of, well, the color, and they said Ed Hardy. I was not introduced to Ed Hardy until a few months ago when my husband said something about Ed Hardy T-shirts (which let me clarify, he is NOT a fan of). So the brand is new to me, however, I picked up one of the folders and thought, man, these colors look so similar to my elementary school Lisa Frank folders, which I loved dearly...so upon further investigation (and the large Lisa Frank logo, I realized that this was a marriage of Lisa Frank and Ed Hardy. Which is two things: genius and somewhat shocking. I mean, do kids know the Ed Hardy brand? Am I that out-of-touch? So I had to have one, to support the concept of two very different styles combined into one, and a little nostalgia. And because I actually needed a folder.
