I’ve got a major crush on velvet, raspberry-burgundy and leopard…
I was instantly captivated by The Avett Brothers‘ new video for their song Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise, which addresses the temporary nature of our mentality, buildings and the world around us. Artist Jason Ryan Mitcham brought their vision to life by altering a single painting 2600 times–10 alterations to the painting equaled one second of film. Amazing.
I’ve been dying to visit Marfa, Texas for some time now and my desire has grown exponentially after learning of El Cosmico, a refurbished vintage trailer campground by hotelier Liz Lambert. Even though it may not come with some of the standard amenities one might be used to, it seems like the only appropriate method to lodge in the Texan desert.
The bag, the effortless bun, the orange polish, the dress and kaftan all are all awesome reminders that summer isn’t quite over yet. But what I’m especially crazy about is the thin gold chain hanging from her sunglasses. Whatever its proper name is (croakie, chum, strap or retainer), let’s just call it understated and totally chic.
