how to make an impression

This is helpful.

“Launch your campaign with the most obvious persuader– dotted white silk organza, romantically inclined to the high tiny waist and gauzy full skirt that dances on air…”

“Watch your syntax, know your first editions– in fashion too…”

“For shipshape courtship — white sailing forth at night as a quietly spectacular kind of shirtdress…”

lunch break thrifting

As you can see, I had some luck today. Who says you have to spend hours sifting through rack after rack? I found all this on my lunch break. Score.

who’s that girl?

While attending a social media event this morning, I got to thinking again how the online world has seeped into every single part of my life. My job. My relationships. My social life. A creative outlet…a tool for discovery. Which made me wonder further (I was paying attention to the panel, I swear!) if I’d even be the person I am today if it didn’t exist.

This was the first picture I ever uploaded to FB. The birth of the ‘online me’… Would my image be the same if not for my online experiences? I say this because I feel so deeply connected to this form of media vs. TV, magazines, etc.

This is me today. Now, I’ve always been a chameleon of sorts, but how did I get from point A to point B? Thoughts?

You knew I’d slip in a ‘what I wore today’ pic at some point.

stop it! stop being so damn cute!

I love reading blogs about fashion, design, greening, diy, tattoos, and weddings. God I love wedding blogs. They pretty much encompass all my favorite subjects and the photos can be so magical. Example?

The hair, the dress, the tattoo, the rings, the flowers. It’s so cute my head might explode.

funky

I spent most of the day on the couch today, something I never ever do. I’m finally sick. I say finally because I’m surprised I haven’t caught the funk from someone else yet.

I just came across this blog and am insanely jealous of her alteration skills. I have so many vintage pieces that just didn’t fit quite right when I got them home (there’s no dressing room at the stores I go to)…

paris 1962

These photos are from Tom Palombo’s flickr stream, “Paris 1962.”
The story goes that they’re images from Parisian cafés & nightlife in 1962, the very same week Yves St. Laurent’s first collection hit the runway.

morbid chic

Wow. I stumbled across this book of photographs…i’m infatuated.

Melanie Pullen lives in  Silverlake, but her photographs have taken her all over the world. Her tableaus are created with painstaking attention to detail (using as many as 60 people on a shoot) and research (vintage crime-scene photos, first-hand accounts, and documents Pullen mined from the files of the LAPD) and the end result is images of crazy beauty.

Morbid? yes. Gorgeous? yes. Is it creepy that I find this so beautiful? Of course,  I’ve always thought graves and cemeteries were things of beauty too…

And the book reminds me of this photo by Robert Wiles:

I’ve been in a funk for the past few days. I think the shortened exposure to daylight is getting to me.
