the eye has to travel

If you've never seen "colour comparisons" via Miss Moss, you need to stop reading this and check them out immediately. Homegirl has an amazing eye for marrying recent runway collections with vintage and sometimes, contemporary artwork in a way that makes my heart smile. I've been following her work for a while now, and it's inspired me to create some of my own. 

Like the colour comparisons, Valentino also has a way of making my heart smile.  Every year, better and better. From head to toe, complete and total ridiculous perfection. For the Valentino Resort 2016 presentation, their inspiration was about freedom and the quote, "the eye has to travel." Enter these beautiful vintage postcards of the Soviet Republic dating back to 1970. I've had these babies saved for months, knowing the right time would come along for me to put them to use...

be light

Mara Hoffman switched things up a little bit this year, sending a lot less all-over prints and more linen and gauzy fabrics down the runway. At first it came to me as a surprise, but the more I look at this collection the more I fall in love. 

Also new this year, is the fact that I got to watch these babies march down the runway up close and personal at NYFW. For the past few months I have being doing social media for the brand, so I witnessed first hand all the hard work that goes into designing these fantastic clothes. It's hard to believe that just a year ago I was making collages from all the way down in Florida, drooling over the images on my computer screen and now I'm in NYC working in her amazing office. 

The world really works in magical mysterious ways and I absolutely love it. Follow your dreams, love your life & the rest will follow.

And she does it again. Mara Hoffman's new Fall 2014 Editorial is nothing short of perfection. A lot less color than you would normally see in a MH campaign, but I'm not complaining.

Paris is absolutely the most beautiful city I have ever been. We only spent three days soaking it all in, but I cherished every minute of it. On a personal level, the trip really hit home with me. I have been dreaming of visiting Paris for as long as I can remember (I have the Eiffel Tower painted in the corner of my bedroom wall) and as soon as we turned the corner at Place Du Trocadéro, tears literally started pouring down my face. I was completely overwhelmed with pure joy. 

Paris, thank you for being so completely beautiful. I will be back one day soon.
