If your a fashion enthusiast and a literature or history buff (gasp!), I hope you’re already familiar with Textbook, where our friend and fellow blogger John Januzzi imagines how fictional heroines, cultural icons, and historical figures might be styled for this day and age. Characters like Jay Gatsby, Veruca Salt, Joan of Arc, and Tinkerbell are playfully dissected and outfitted with individualized runway pieces. The collages are meticulously assembled and the captions are witty. All in all, it’s honestly genius. He even takes requests! So dear John, what would Jo March wear?

I want it all: the fishtail palm in the living room (best house plant ever), the suzani detail on the bottom of the curtains (DIY), the Moroccan rug, the coffee table, and the barn sink in the kitchen. I already have the bulldog that’s in the kitchen, so I must be on the right track to making this dream home my reality.
Photography duo Jeremy Floto and Cassandra Warner, of New York-based Floto + Warner, choose abandoned buildings and the stark landscape of the Nevada desert for their latest photo series. The video is especially mesmerizing, with colorful smoke moving along to Bon Iver’s moody Holocene.
Vogue is looking back at 120 years of covers with their latest Vogue: The Covers. Organized in chronological order by decade, the book begins with illustrated covers from the magazine’s inception in 1892 to present day. Witnessing the evolution of fashion, art, culture, and photography via the work of influential artists like Helmut Newton, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Bruce Weber, Herb Ritts, Steven Meisel, Annie Leibovitz, and Mario Testino is exemplary and fascinating.
German based clothing line Set has yet to make its way stateside but at least we can all walk away with a bit of outfit inspiration from their spring lookbook. I’m love the casual chic styling and the mix of tees, knits, pants, and accessories is so on point!
