divine inspiration



"Til Death Do Us Part" t-shirt design by Zerobriant (via FFFFOUND!) - I just discovered TeeFury and I love the concept.  Basically a new t-shirt design is available everyday in limited quantities.  Each design has an interview with the designer, so you can read about the designer's background and inspiration.



Ballerina Yola Letellier at the Grand Steeple-Chase d'Auteil, June 19, 1927.  She was the inspiration behind the main character of Collette's Gigi. Photo by Seeberger (via FFFFOUND!)



A piece from Tim Burton's MoMA exhibition (via Cinematical) - I'm sure most of you have heard about this, but I appreciated finding a gallery online since I won't be able to attend.



le corps robot descending, Monte Carlo by Helmut Newton (via artnet) - If you have $13,000-$15,000 to blow, it can be yours.  Artnet's Faces and Figures auction features 375 photos by 185 notable contemporary artists, but you better get on it if you want to bid, because it ends today.

PS Thank you so much La Mimi for featuring me as your Fashion Idol of the Week! The generous write-up and incredible photo layout is too kind!

Also, Weardrobe just recently updated their site to include a shopping feature, so definitely check it out!

  4. You are truly a fashion idol, without a doubt... what a wonderful feature.

    I'm loving skulls right now. I don't know where this obsession came from. First the boyfriend watch with the skull, then I saw a cool skull dress and now this skull T.

  5. Oh the Tim Burton piece is just so cool! I'm stalking the exhibit online.

    And you are SO deserving of a Fashion Idol of the Week feature! LOVE IT!

  6. T. Burton is such a conundrum to me. I know he traffiks in Henry Selleck's imagery, but what to make of the very odd and intriguing Middle Eastern influences in Beetlejuice? The Arabic name of the star, the black & white stripe, etc? I always wanted to write an essay on it. But his taste in women--Bonham Carter?-- is flawless. Wow, what am I TALKING about? :). Anyway, I spent so much love on his movies as a child, I must pay my respects in NYC. Congrats on all your accolades, you are so deserving! And gorgeous!

  16. Hey! Thanks for the comment! For most of my photos, I use a simple mini digital camera from canon (can't remember the model name right now), and then edited them all in Photoshop! :) I don't usually carry my big Canon EOS 10D around with me, so the mini digital one is perfect for everyday, impulsive shots!
