I recently came across Czech illustrator Miroslav Sasek‘s set of reissued children’s travel books and instantly fell in love. After publishing the first of his This Is… series in 1959, M. Sasek continued to capture the essence of worldly destinations like London, Israel, Munich, San Francisco and Hong Kong, with his delightfully notable midcentury style. How wonderful that over fifty years later, these books are still being appreciated by children and adults alike.
For Love & Lemons’ latest lookbook boasts yet another dreamy collection of embroidered tulle and delicate lace dresses, cropped wrap tops and floor sweeping skirts. It’s all so femininely on point – always with the just the right amount of sexy. I’ll take it all and the tropical getaway, too.
Nestled into the cliffs of Positano, overlooking the Amalfi Coast, is Le Sirenuse – an eighteenth century summer villa turned hotel that has become legendary in this sleepy, romantic village. I love that the traditional details, like the hand painted tiled floors, the poppy red exterior and decorative antiques, haven’t been changed a bit over the years. And the indoor vines and outdoor lemon trees?! Charming and perfect. Andiamo!
When you find vintage this good - in one well curated place – you want to just relish in it and buy all the perfectly weathered white tees, broken in denim, and dreamy white slip dresses for yourself. And not tell a soul. You feel me?! But my conscience got the better part of me and it would be selfish not to share. So here it is: Passenger Vintage. You’re welcome. And save some for me.
