Month: September 2009

Sofia Coppola & Louis Vuitton

I was going through some of my old files and found these photos of Sofia Coppola’s 2008 ad campaign for the bags and shoes she designed for
Louis Vuitton.

The bags seemed typical LV to me. But the ads were fantastic, so Sofia.

Especially love the Polaroids. (Ok, love the red shoes too…)

What if Sofia did a personal style book with nothing but Polaroids? Could you imagine it? She could take photos of her closet, and her office and all her interesting friends….
I shouldn’t be thinking about these things at midnight because it just wakes me up and now it will be 3 a.m. before I get to bed.

O well. Happy Tuesday everyone!

One more!

The Temperley Zoetrope

This amazing zoetrope, created to showcase Temperley London’s Spring 2010 collection, is like a giant windup music box. It’s enchanting, with animated film loops and vintage stills. All set to jazz.

Have a look. What do you think?

Moonlight


moon and mountains, originally uploaded by mountaintails.

Hello everyone. It’s been such a long day with work. I’m heading to bed a bit early. But I first wanted to share with you this photo of the waxing moon, by Mountaintails on flickr. It’s starting to set in the west in Los Angeles…

I also wanted to tell you that Becka delivered the baby! (Sounded like it was an all-night affair!)

Have a lovely evening. See you tomorrow. xo Tina

what I wore today

Hello lovelies! Becka here, I’m so excited to be back here sharing a bit of daily inspiration with you all this week. Thank you for having me, Tina! I wanted to show you all this fantastic flickr group I have recently come across, ‘What I Wore Today’. I already love browsing through blogs and photo pools like Wardrobe Remix to see what people are wearing. I love that its real people wearing their own unique style. While this group isn’t technically real people, I think it may now be my favourite. You see, this group is drawings only. Yep, everyone who posts in the group whips up a wee sketch of what they’ve worn that day to show off to us all. Not only are there so many fantastic drawings, but most come with the best little descriptions of what is being worn and why. Love!

Here are a few of my favourites…Photo credits from top: carolyn alexander, gemma correll, tinysketchbook, lizzy stewart, hellojenuine, neithlocay, alma rosa, Sarah McNeil (aka one of my favourite, favourite artists).

Aren’t they lovely? All those red cheeks are just too good.

These photos were taken from the latest version of Jeu de Paume’s Paris Kitchens, a charming little tome that I’ve only been able to find in LA’s Little Tokyo. (With text in Japanese!)

I love the colorful tins and the make-shift shelves with mismatched crockery.
