License To Thrill

A soiree at the mid-century home of @jrummerfield & @danarummerfield. Using their 60's home as inspiration, the invite asked guests to pick a style from that era. James Bond, Sinatra, and Mod were some suggestions. Have a look at everyone's interpretations!

Wild Wild West

What do you think of the western trend?Paul & Joe Spring 2010 runway...
Chloe Spring 2010... patchwork denim. hmmChanel Spring 2010... I think this look is more barnyard w/ clogs.... but Lily Allen is jammin in the background!

I think D&G is having the most fun with it. Leather bloomers? Mickey Mouse tee? Scarf around the neck? Yes. Reminds me a bit of being a kid and Knotts Berry Farm. Makes me want to mine for gold. Ahh, the memories.This is a little closer to where I would take the look in real life. I love crisp shirts and skirts. The belt would be great with lots of looks.
Some images from the ad campaign...A cheaper option to dip your toe into western waters? How about The Gap's jean vest over a long flowy dress?I bought the dress this weekend. The leather bloomers will have to wait.

Kernel of Perfection

Soak up these mind-blowing images by Geof Kerns.

The Alice In Wonderland inspired images were created for Flor.
Drink in his quotes. I think I'm falling in love...

“I come from a poor background. I didn’t know anybody. I didn’t have connections. I had a child who had brain cancer. And I thought that I could make money more quickly in still photography.”

“I don’t have much time to pour the wine and muse over relics of the past. I think of myself as just a guy who shows up for work every day.”

“Photography is ipso facto surreal. It distorts reality. It makes you believe what you’re seeing.”

Joshua Petker: Between Butterflies

@JoshuaPetker is a romantic. He loves painting beautiful women. He's sometimes shy yet fiercely opinionated and a traditionalist who says thank you more often than necessary because he'd rather err on the side of politeness. This incredible artist is presenting his second solo exhibition Saturday, April 17 and I can't wait.
This is a first look at some of his paintings. Most are already sold. Let's begin with my favorite.
