i love checking into the No.6 blog to see what new pieces they’re carrying, and their informal photographs are always fun to look at. for those who don’t know, No. 6 is a shop in NYC (run by vintage collector Morgan Yakus and stylist Karin Bereson) that stocks vintage pieces, contemporary independent designers and their own amazing line of clothing and shoes. oh, the shoes. i want a pair of No.6 clogs so much it HURTS. they also carry shoes by Rae Jones (seen in the pics below) that are simply amazing.
i can be a real grump when it comes to the wedding industry. overly elaborate ceremonies, staged props (usually of the cutesy & vintage variety) and terribly cheesy wedding photography that’s photoshopped within an inch of its life makes me sigh audibly. i find most of it completely unnecessary, and it distracts from what the day is supposed to be about. so when i come across honest weddings and, best of all, honest wedding photographers i feel a glimmer of hope.
easter is my favourite holiday. not because of the chocolate (who cares about the chocolate? we can buy that stuff all year round – who are we kidding.) no no, it’s because every easter weekend in my living memory has marked the turn of the seasons. it will always be cold & rainy without fail. and i look forward to it so, so much – especially when the march heat waves almost send me to the brink of tears. okay i’m exaggerating, those were probably just my eyes sweating.
let me explain to you how this usually goes. i start browsing through my trusted roll of street style blogs, opening my favourite looks in new tabs, then i usually have a gander at bukowski’s to see what new art they have on their books (the internet isn’t fun if you don’t multi-task) which leads to a couple of mmmm moments. mmm this is an interesting theme. mmm these look good together. and then blammo! mashup magic happens.
Inspired by the novels of Jules Verne and Mark Twain, Ryan McGinley followed a group of kids through the uncharted underground caves of north America, taking pictures of them nude and tiny against the spectacular geological backdrops.
