Rabbit Hole

i’ve been trying to make the blog a bit more fun to explore since there are almost 2000 posts stretching back 3 years littered all over the place. so now if you click on a post, you will see ten related posts with handy thumbnail previews pop up in the sidebar to your left. i hope that this helps you discover posts you’ve never seen before, and that it will be especially handy to those of you who are new visitors to the blog (hello!)

so if you’re reading this via rss please remember to click on a post if you like it, because you’re bound to find more of the same in the now-magical-sidebar. i must admit that i actually got lost in my own archives testing these puppies out…

the screenshot below is of this sting posthelloooo sting. helloooooo jeremy irons.

… i hope a few of you get the plethora joke.

oh and if there is any way i can make the blog even more magical and user friendly for you guys please let me know in the comments. on an unrelated note – can you believe it’s almost december & the end of the year? what the what!

Picasso

inspired by this post by lauren about francoise gilot i decided to do some vintage picasso hunting – and of course the life archives delivered. picasso lived in the town of vallauris on the french riviera for 7 years where he created ceramics at the madoura workshop (amongst other things of course – the man was nothing if not prolific). francoise is pictured in this series of photographs taken in 1949 by gjon mili, though she eventually left picasso after a myriad of infidelities.

These Things No.29

seems that it has been a week of things i like right now, these things, nice things, flickr things and the like. truth is i’m surprised i got any posting done at all as i’m in the process of moving out of my flat – this weekend being the last in my home of a year. i’m excited for the next step but also sad to leave behind my pals who have been so great to live with. onward and upward! i hope you have a great weekend and to all my american readers – happy thanksgiving.

Christina: Things I Like Right Now

Rounding up my inaugural sponsors things i like right now showcase is Christina Remenyi, the amazing talent behind exquisite lingerie label Fortnight Lingerie. i love seeing how much i have in common with these great gals – i am also obsessed with those acne pistol boots, won’t say no to vanilla soft serve (ever) and am in the habit of drinking my morning coffee out of vintage cups and mugs.

1. Drinking coffee out of vintage Pyrex mugs. An Everyday event.

2. Elephants. My favourite animal. Period.

3. Gotye. I got hooked on the song “somebody that I used to know” … the whole album is stunning.

4. Retro Motels. I wish I had a time machine.

5. Acne Pistol. Black leather boot perfection

6. Game of Thrones. I know that Anabela already mentioned this in her likes, but it’s so good it deserves more love. I just finished the first season and can’t WAIT for the next one.

7. St. John’s Bridge. This is a double like… one for bridges and the other for Portland. I’ve always been in awe of these majestic, man-made passageways. Portland has many bridges connecting the eastern and western parts of town. Just left after 4 days of amazing food, coffee, music and brews and I can’t wait to go back!

8. Stevie Nicks. Enough said.

9. Vanilla Soft-Serve Ice Cream. Simple and perfect… even in the winter.

10. This Ring by Portland based designer Autoctona. I don’t wear much jewelry… but this is an exception.

Anett Hajdu

i love the beautiful identity & packaging work that designer Miklos Kiss developed for fashion designer Anett Hajdu’s A/W 11/12 accessories collection. Miklos explains the design on his website:

Anett Hajdu’s accessories collection concept: in the chaos caused by contemporary and eclectic fashion trends, it is a pleasant feeling to turn toward to the style of puritanism what inspired by the nature and people costumes who are living with the nature. People and their everyday objects, animals and the atmosphere around the arctic circle provided a starting point for this design collection. Every single bag contains a unique individuality in hidden leather-jewels that helps us to perform as a part of the pure nature. These bags reveals the hidden animal from us. The packaging concept fits for the main design theory. The casing remind us for the meat industrial wrappings, the hunter accessories as well as a little Skandinavian sense.

and here’s the lookbook for the bags & headpieces from Annet’s website:
