For a newly released book project, photographer Mark Nixon has captured intimate portraits of cherished stuffed animals that have been ripped apart and bruised after years of play and snuggles. Although seemingly sad at first, you can’t help but think that the more tattered the plush possession, the more loved it was. It’s not easy being a teddy bear!
We pretty much want to put jewels on everything these days, including the ever classic trench thanks to Christopher Bailey. Burberry’s iconic trench coat got a dazzling makeover with jeweled florets – the highlight of his resort collection! Sparkly crystals + our favorite type of outerwear?! This calls for a DIY, of course. This may not be the easiest of tutorials but it’s so worth the time and effort, if you are so inspired.
When New York art dealer Dorothea McKenna Elkon first purchased this 18th century riad in Essaouira, Morocco, it was crumbling and in total disrepair.

I love the bears howling trails of colorful patterns.
