Bisbee, Arizona


I was so excited when this Kate Spade ad campaign debuted a couple years ago… I spent six years in Arizona before heading to California… And one of my friends grew up in the small town of Bisbee. (And I’m certain she would find the gold jacket and big blue flower quite smart!) I can’t […]

Who knew a face cream could be so glamourous… This ad series in Italian Vogue makes the cream look like La Mer… I have to admit I love Nivea’s vintage packaging. I bought two little blue tins in a Rome pharmacy. (They were much easier to pack than the stovetop milk steamer, the 20 wool […]
