Casa Rita is located on Formentera Island, the smallest and most southerly of the Balearic Islands of Spain. When I first saw Jordi Canosa‘s photos of this harmoniously rustic home, I was immediately reminded on one of my favorite flamenco songs, Aire by Josè Mercè. He sings: “que tenga la puerta abierta la alegria de mi casa,” which means to have the door open to joy and happiness in your home!
I’m completely captivated by this editorial, shot by Mario Testino for Vogue UK in Antwerp. Inspired by the studies of the Belgium Old Masters, Lucinda Chambers has styled this spread beautifully with stunning headpieces, oversized necklaces, ruffled cuffs, and contrasting blacks and whites. Lovely.
If you liked Dalton Ghetti’s carved pencils, you’re going to love this. Diem Chau is an artist who is best known for her intricate and detailed crayon carvings. Inspired by folk art and wood carvings from the Depression Era, Diem chose crayons as her medium for their fragility and reminder of childhood. Here she has carved the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. Impressive, right? Check out the rest of her crayon carvings here!
If I had a nickel for every time my mom has warned “the sun is not your friend,” I could retire tomorrow. Honestly. Instead, my closet is full of sun hats, fedoras, cowboy hats, visors, and various other sun shielding apparati. While it may not suffice as an alternative to sunscreen, kudos to Lola Ehrlich for transforming a simple straw hat into a chic stitched fedora and inspiring us to add a little pizzaz to one of our many hats!
