prête-moi ta main

i watched a french romantic comedy last night called i do: how to get married & stay single (prête-moi ta main). it’s not a rom-com the way american ones are – in other words it’s actually funny and not schmaltzy at all. if you want to watch a light hearted movie that will really make you laugh (and you don’t mind subtitles), go rent this now.

toto

totokaelo has some great stuff at the moment. i can remember how excited i was the first time i discovered it, my friend and i looked at every single piece of clothing for the better part of an hour… and every time i visit i end up spending way too much time browsing. they stock APC, acne, chloe, opening ceremony, rachel comey, vanessa bruno & many more.

shorpy

shorpy is one of those sites i should have discovered years ago, but instead only found in the past month via this via that via this via some other site i forget. anyway i’m glad i did because these vintage images are quality. and when i say quality, i mean HIGH quality.

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. Most were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into jpegs.

some of my favourites:

the ice maiden

the ice maiden (1915)edmund dulac

1915 you say! this looks like something a modern day illustrator would create and sell prints of on etsy. except 1000 x better (edmund would have been a hit on etsy)

hilda grahnat

I am a 22 year old graphic design student, born and raised in the dark forests of Sweden. I take pictures to remember, to preserve a passing moment and to distinguish interesting details from their otherwise average surroundings. I love traveling and take my best pictures when I travel. I have a fondness for all things vintage, typography and morning light. I have spent most of my life thinking I cannot draw. I am not yet convinced of the contrary, but at least now I am trying.

well said, hilda. her vintage items styled by colour are a dream…
