L’Officiel Marion

I have yet to see Public Enemies with Marion but she was truly amazing in La Vie En Rose. These candid-like shots aren’t what you would expect from an editorial but I find them refreshing. Marion is ever so charming and sexy at the same time. I also must note that one reason I am so drawn to these images is because of her flawlessly simple make-up and slicked back hair.

These new shots of Anja in Vogue Nippon clearly have 80’s glam written all over them. Although we may find ourselves becoming quite sick of the same styles being shot over and over again, I cannot help but find myself swooning over the jewels, clutches, and bedazzled shouldered dresses. Anja is always a favorite and the black and white images solidify my envy for her stunning statuesque features.







watch the cracks.

It feels rather silly to bring up the beauty of the photographs from the Jak & Jil blog, but after glancing over the two most recent images posted today, I felt complete nostalgia. Just over two years ago, I traveled throughout Europe with four inch heels in tow. I wore them as much as physically possible amongst my peers sporting flip flops and chuck taylors. Of course I wore my flats most of the day, but whenever an opportunity arose to add some height to my petite frame, I slipped on my topshop pumps. The streets of Amsterdam, London, Paris, and Barcelona ruined each pair of heels I had brought and bought along the way. The cobblestone tore apart the leather and wore down the soles. This shot is the perfect portrayal of a fresh pair of heels hitting the streets of Paris.


Another shot of fabulous photographer, illustrator, and writer , Garance Doré, wearing an envious pair of Pierre Hardy’s has me in awe of the fact that she can spend all day photographing others ensembles in some towering mesh booties of her own.

After the somewhat recent fashion week in Sydney, many fashion photographers have  captured quality images of the people and scenery that has left me quite inspired. The always superb site, The Selby, found a home that has both charm and high fashion elegance. The polaroid covered refrigerator and the chalkboard kitchen cabinets portray such a fun amount of personality. The clothes hung up against the wall favor simplicity and the love of a garments beauty. The mirrored window and old school red telephone add a touch of rustic charm. Lastly, my favorite part of most homes are the few items that people choose to put on their dressers.









And who doesn’t love to see how people keep and display their clothing?
