Gravity defying Fashion

It is a beautiful moment when exceptional creative photography and fashion collide. 

Over New York; 1963
Melvin Sokolsky
Melvin Sokolsky's collection of models seemingly defying gravity is far beyond the time and limitations of the genre. This work spoke to me as a photographer striving to find inspiration within the world that surrounds me and as a woman seeking a deeper expression of self through fashion. 

I think I could stare at this work for ages and still be mystified by the simplicity of the setting and the graceful nature of each muse.

Big Voice in a Tiny Desk

The mister sent me a wonderful link to brighten my Friday afternoon. So  in true love fashion I am sending it to you!!

The Tiny Desk is a brilliant concert series produced by NPR Music during which amazing musicians, like my favorite Adele, literally set up stage behind producer Bob Boilen's tiny desk. This ingenious setting provides the artist an intimate space to make magic happen. Check it out and share you favorite!!

Lawrence is so Lovely

One of my very favorite things is finding new and wonderful vintage inspired sites! 

Lawrence is a lovely little site just launch by the beautiful Frankie Zmetra. 

This site has an array of feminine pieces from the 20's to 90's and every decade in between. To get a little more perspective on the woman behind the shoppe, check out her inspiration tumblr.

Banana Republic has gone Mad!

For Mad Men that is!

If you are anything like me, your heart sank a little when AMC announced that Mad Men would be on hiatus until next year. What is a girl to do when needing a little Don Draper fix? Why shop of course! And for what better than Mad Men inspired threads. 

Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant teamed up with Banana to create shear genius. Now all of the seemingly untouchable masterpieces on the show, are available to the masses! (and at a pretty affordable cost)

The collection will be available online August 10 and will be in a store near you this fall! 

These are just a few of my favorites, but check out here and here to start your wish list today!! I would love to hear what you can't wait to own.
