Category: Polaroids

Inspiration

Do you remember We heart it? It was there way before Pinterest. I used to browse beautiful images that others had uploaded and add them to my “hearted images”. Nowadays, you can find cooler pictures on Pinterest or Flickr but the pictures I had hearted still remain there so I thought I will share some with you. Have a nice weekend! Jenny

Instagram vs Polaroid

instagram vs polaroid

Both have their drawbacks: You need an iPhone (at the moment) to use Instagram. And Polaroid film is expensive and difficult to find.

But if you had your choice, which one would you pick?

Postcards and Souvenirs

matchbooks

I’m a predictable flea market shopper. I always end up on a treasure hunt for things I can bring home without much ado…
…Like postcards…
postcards polaroid
….Old matchbooks…
matchbooks
…Fifty-year-old bottles of “My Sin” and pink nylon slips…
perfume bottles
You know, the stuff that’s easy to carry to the car in 105 degree heat.
But someday I’m going to make a grand show of it: I’ll drive up to the flea market at 6 am in a
U-Haul truck with two brawny guys. We’ll cart off all those things I really wanted to buy but didn’t because they wouldn’t fit into the back of my old Mercedes station wagon. (And I didn’t have room in the house anyway. ) … Someday…
Happy Weekend everyone. It’s the third Sunday of the month, which means Long Beach and then coffee at Chuck’s! See you Monday!

The shoes I’d wear to the party…


Gold ballerina flats with gold grosgrain ribbons. (The rest of the outfit is over here!)  

Happy New Year!!

PS:  The photo above was taken with an iPhone and then polarized with the free desktop application,  Polardroid! Can you tell the difference??!

Xmas in LA

I went out searching today for an open coffee shop to get my afternoon latte. I happened upon this little alley garden. A few snapshots:

The camellias are already blooming, along with the last roses of the season…Hope you had a lovely holiday…

Discovered: Fabulous Fashion Polaroid Blog

World renowned fashion photographer Antonio Barros honored me this morning by stopping by my blog and leaving a comment (from the Ukraine) on my snow post. He was kind enough to leave a link to his blog, the Singular, which he started in June…I had to click over and take a look! Wait till you see it!! The blog is comprised entirely of Polaroids that he’s taken of models, celebs and fashionistas on his travels around the world. Photos like this, for example:

He explains the blog this way: “One unique polaroid picture. One single moment. An attempt to be out of the ordinary.”

Here’s the address: thesingular.blogspot.com.

Have a look! You’ll love it!
