Have you ever wondered why something appealed to you? Ever wondered why a sudden intrigue in something so random? Sometimes, I wonder these very things myself. It's amazing how I could totally overlook a particular object or person at a glance, but have a magnetic interest in something else just the same. Or, I have not been interested at all in something or even despised it one season, but three seasons later or even the next, I love it. Well, that is just how my latest obsession with color came about. The color that I am most fascinated with at the moment is blue. Not just any blue, but cerulean. Yes, I love the depth of this shade. It's everywhere I turn lately, so I decided to pay tribute to the color in this post. I can't wait to wear it in the summer and spring. I have no idea where this deep-seated infatuation came from, being the dark person that I am. But, that's the beauty of it all. It's so unexpected, so natural, so...amazing.
These hardcore leather corset beauties are made by a company dba Antiseptic Fashion. It was love at first sight and very good girl gone bad. They don't come cheap either, (the corsets run average $600) but I'm sure with all the effort put into constructing one of them, they are worth it. I am seeing the brown one worn over a nude chiffon dress...hmm...YES!
I'm sure we've all heard the saying, "Opinions are like a**holes, everybody's got one." It's hands down one of the rawest and best cliches circulating out there in pop culture. I love these photos, the first picture reminds of a Tom Ford ad, but a female version. "Why do people want to hate the "pop-flash"?" "Why do people hate Terry Richardson's work?" are questions that cross my mind every time I read an adverse comment. You know, there are dozens of photographers that have been shooting this style of photography or some variation of it for years and its probably happening right now as I "peck the qwerty". It's nothing new, like everything in life and fashion, it's cyclical. That's my bit, I don't mind...
Here are some pictures from a recent project that I worked on. I thought they came out pretty cool and thought that you might find them cool too. I love what I am doing right now, and I love how I am finally learning to be artistic with my camera. At least I feel artistic...it's playtime!
P.S. The chain headband is by LaDama <= check it out! and orchid headband is DIY.
That's exactly what design duo, Amy Flurry and Nikki Salk starting doing on their latest collaborative effort, Paper-Cut-Project. The team partnered up with Jeffrey stores in both the Atlanta and NYC markets creating installations for boutique shoppers and passerbys alike. Who said window shopping can't be fun? Well.. I'm sure I have a time or two, but these girls have piqued my artistic interest with such a clever and intriguing design project. I look forward to seeing the developments of P-C-P, oh can somebody say color? In the meantime, check out other designs and designer bios, here. Stay tuned...
Call me crazy, perhaps it's just me, but I'm not a fan of this dip dyed hair trend. However, when I saw these photos for Harper's Bazaar Romania, I couldn't help but get the tingles. My guess is that because the hair is more sleek instead of wild and bed-head like, it's more alluring. The contrast on the editorial is great with the nature and then this beautiful siren with half pink hair, and shiny armor. It works so well, what an achievement for the whole creative team. Besides, they won my heart with the sequin jumpsuit. I love anything that sparkles, it matches the twinkle in my eye...
P.S. I know I've slowed down on posts, but I am trying to find another personal outlet for inspiration other than editorials. I want to make this blog my own, but I haven't figured it out yet. For those of you that visit anyway, or get some kind of inspiration for my blog, I thank you. Better things to come!
And now, you're all mine. Good things come to those who wait. I've been hearing this phrase repetitiously over the past week. Does it have some significant meaning to something prominent in my life? Hmm, makes me wonder.
Well! I am just ecstatic about the taking home of my new BOYY Slash Bag. As you may know, I have done more than a few posts on this bag and its many versions. It was meant to be, I tell you. Short story; I was milling around the handbag department during work and was checking to see if my Matt & NatSantogold bag went on sale or not. Lo and behold, I see the Boyy Slash bag just sitting there staring at me in all its glory! When did we get this bag?!! I snatch it up, praying it was on sale, and it was, so needless to say I got a pretty sweet deal. I couldn't be any happier than I am right now...smitten.
P.S. It has a double-sided flap. The other side is plain black leather if you don't want the python to show. I should have taken a picture with that version, but hey, I forgot.
This story was so refreshing, a breath of fresh air. Oh, how I've missed Haute Couture editorials! Always decadent, always theatrical, never to disappoint. Its been a dream of mine to do one of my own, though far from reach at the moment, but not impossible. Every once in a while, it's permissible to let a little "drama" into my life. See the rest, here.
When I saw Nicole Richie in this Reem Acra stunner, I thought, "total knockout...stunning." I was just speaking about exploring my hippie side during spring and she epitomizes the term, "hippie chic/hippie glam". I guess that too is why I am so excited about getting a little piece of the Winter Kate collection. As we speak, I am trying not to head over to singer22 and pre-order the Jasmine Cardy in Frankie print. But, I have time because it doesn't ship until April 30th! I have a strange feeling that this "cardy" is going to end up on a wooden hanger, in color order, right next to my silk floral caftan. Sighs of satisfaction already in progress...
