Kolmanskop, a town in the Namib desert in southern Namibia, was once a rich diamond mining village. Within a 40 year span the town lived, flourished and then died. Richer diamond deposits were discovered further south, operations were moved, nature took its course and the desert sands reclaimed their space. Thank you, Álvaro Sánchez-Montañés, for capturing these hauntingly beautiful images!
Inspired by Tippi Hedren and Eva Marie Saint, starlets known for their roles in iconic Alfred Hitchcock films, Erdem Moralioglu dubbed his Resort 2012 collection Slightly Hitchcockian. I’m crushing on the watercolor floral prints, delicate lace, high contrast colors, and ladylike silhouettes . . . Classically Erdemian.
700,500,000,000,000,000,000. Apparently, that’s how many grains of sand there are on all the beaches in the world . . .

How sweet is this backyard party that photographer Jeremy Parson threw for his wife’s birthday? A fan of the super long dining table, vintage place settings, colorful & organic floral arrangements and strung lights, I’m inspired to throw my own outdoor soirée this summer . . . just ’cause!
