Negative Space + Pandas

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

negative space - panda - mark lund

This is one of my favorite pages from the B&A Artists Journal – a promotional zine they distributed to art directors to promote their artists. I love the use of negative space – and how the artwork cleverly mirrors the photograph. I also can’t help but mention that the photograph, taken by Mark Lund, is equally playful, and full of the kind of natural light photographers dreams are made of.

fashion week street style

Friday, September 30th, 2011

i’ve been pinning like crazy curls on pinterest!  i like it because you can kind of throw a ton of stuff on there – and then save the best for the blog – which is what i’m doing now.. that way the blog can be super curated – only amazing stuff will make the cut – good idea/good idea?

so like usual – i’ve been following fashion week like a freak.  but this time around – i’ve been obsessed with all the street fashion.  yes, i know street fashion blogs are obviously not a new thing – but i’ve just fallen in love with how these ladies are translating fashion in their own unique way.  AND – let’s not forget the talents behind the lenses. Wow!  They chase after beautiful light – crop just so, emphasizing the scene stealing details – and if you follow their work frequently, they illustrate a really addicting story about the taste makers who are telling the story of  fashion today.

Wow – so thought out for just some street style photos – but whatever – i’ll own it.

Below are a few of my favorite street style photos thus far – but we’re just getting started with Paris Fashion Week – & I’m sure our taste makers have saved their best looks for last…. so stay tuned!

pretty shadows in the background

don’t the purplish-blue shadows of the blinds look so pretty! it’s such a random detail to notice – but i think it is what make this picture so interesting. it perfectly complements bri’s hair & lips – it even makes that top pop ( :) ) and that gold scarf shimmer just a little bit more!!

uhzzz : love emily henderson

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

so.. i’m obsessed with the new design star winner, emily henderson. she literally is the sole reason why i started watching hgtv again. anyway… i found out she has a blog, and of course- it doesn’t disappoint. not only does she chat about her life and new show, secrets of a stylist, but she shares photos of her flea market finds, design tips and tricks, room inspirations, professional profiles, and tons of other things i’m forgetting that are equally amazing. anyway. i saved a few of her room inspirations..
i love the black cabinets and white walls… mixed with earthy furniture and that amazing rug.. oh and that light bulb pendant light (can you even call it that) in the middle of the room… beautifully ‘un-styled’

pretty kitty

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

just saw this Slim Aarons photo on oh joy. how amazing! this is the sort of thing i love! and how kooky and amazing is the person that signed off on this?! don’t you just want to meet them and find out about their life. i know i do! oh.. and if you want to take a dip in this pretty kitty pool, sadly… it is no longer. in an effort to update the hotel, the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami replaced it with a more modest rectangle shaped pool. surprised?

i like you

yes.. i think we all need a break from the fashion show coverage… i know i’ve gone on over drive. the thing is- it is all so good I can’t stop! but for your sake here is a cute little picture i found on garance dore’s blog. i want to attach it to everything.. like make it a 1×2.5 and just randomly put it on things in the street.. or stick it to images i like… or on food in the grocery store…. anything and everything probably. anyway… i love her- and her blog and her photos OH and her illustrations OH and also her writing. if you are listening garance- i like you- you make me smile everyday!!

this image has been living patiently on my desktop -highlighted in blue, the color i use when i want to feature it on the blog- for a while now. it reminds me of the hill-side scene in the sound of music.. soooo good. anyway.. the photo is from wedding photography team Our Labor of Love. they are doing amazing things.. turning traditional wedding photography on it’s dull old head.. it’s easy to get caught up browsing through their portfolio.. you just keep clicking and clicking and..

spotted first here at once wed
