seldom do i come across an online magazine that has me entranced from start to finish. i can flip through those bad boys pretty quickly, and let me tell you… they’re not always great (hence the flipping). Atomica does not fit into that category. the quality of the editorials, not to mention the absolutely beautiful photography, is not something you’d expect to see from a free online magazine (note: you can also buy printed versions). to top it all off, it is published and edited by high school senior and photographer Kelsea Kosko. i know. just in case you weren’t astounded enough already.
i am pretty fussy when it comes to jewellery. i can appreciate beautiful pieces but actually wearing something is a different story. i don’t like anything gaudy or flashy and i really, really have to love something in order to wear it. so -my eyes almost popped out of their sockets when i saw this ring by mirta jewellery over at amateur couture. the designer andrea simic is an architecture student who makes jellewery on the side. i would wear all these pieces.
i did an awesome little project with Modcloth which is on their blog today. Erin from Calivintage approached me about doing a colour comparisons post for them (lucky gal works for Modcloth you see) and she came up with the best idea to put together some fantasy outfits from their inventory and pair them with paintings. not only that, but they’d actually style my choice outfits and photograph them. WHOA! was my exact reaction. then i actually saw the end result and i might have said something like, “HELLS BELLS!” (probably ruder than that actually, but i try to be a lady on this here blog.)
i love plaid, even though it’s a “trend” that’s been around for years now. doubtless i will still love it long after it filters out of every department store. if i see a girl with a nice checked shirt tucked into good jeans or with a pair of well fit trousers i am guaranteed to turn and take a second look. so if you see me staring at you in the street, don’t be alarmed.
i have been out of commission today, so just want to share more of my great friend amy’s collages for inspiration’s sake.
these images are all from amy’s collection of cutouts from magazines & some were possibly printed from the internet. unfortunately i can’t list any of the sources – but if you by any chance see something that is yours let me know!
oh boy am i a sucker for a well curated (online) shop. 11th Moon hits all the right notes… and makes my heart beat a little bit faster than it should. they have an enviable list of designers in their inventory & beautiful styling to boot.
