Everything about this head-to-toe ensemble, that blogger-stylist extraordinaire Natalie Joos so brilliantly put together, makes me giddy. The explosion of color, by way of a vintage Yves Saint Laurent skirt, beaded, beaded Delduca accessories, Caroline Issa for LK Bennett embroidered pumps with pom poms and green Karen Walker sunnies, is the perfect example of how truly FUN fashion can be. Love.
New ideas are old ideas as history has a tendency of repeating itself and in fashion, it’s no exception. Lilah Ramzi, of my newest blog obsession Part Nouveau, explores the history and inspiration behind some of our favorite modern fashion moments. Who knew the campaign for Miss Dior Cherie, shot by Tim Walker, was inspired the 1956 short film Le Ballon Rouge? Or that cover of Harper’s Bazaar, where Kate Winslet is swinging off a tower in front of the Chrysler Building, was influenced by Lisa Fonssagrives swaying from the Eiffel Tower in a 1939 issue of French Vogue? Fascinating!
We believe that if there is anyone that deserves pampering, it’s mom. Which is why we’re so juiced about collaborating with the ever brilliant Joy Wilson of Joy The Baker, over at HonestlyYUM, to inspire you with a week’s worth of Mother’s Day ideas that include delectable recipes for a white chocolate cake, egg tartlets, lavender blackberry scones, a raspberry rose fizz cocktail and a step by step tutorial for how to make a delightful three-tiered dessert stand out of vintage plates. So get ready for 5 days of overwhelming beauty and wholesome goodness . . . because mom deserves it.
We love Los Angeles Times’ regular round up of the 50 Best - from cigar bands to snow domes, Vegas chips to high heels, and Tokyo taxi tops to soda pops. Their recent collection of 50 vintage beer cans comes from Dan Becker and Lance Wilson’s Beer: A Genuine Collection of Cans. Can we talk about how incredibly stylish beer cans used to be?!
And just like that, it was 2013. Thanks for all your support in 2012 – it was a monumental year. We’re looking forward to an even brighter new year!! xx
