I did a little post on the shoes for the Valentino Spring Haute Couture Spring 2012 collection and I'm still swooning. The long sleeve gowns are my favourite as well as all the crystal and pearl embellishments. Click on the images to enlarge them and go here to see the rest of the collection.
I'm sick in Summer (which is the absolute worst) so I came home a bit mizzies. Anyway, this lifted my mood a little. Even though. the images may not be all that visually pleasing, I like the concept behind this clothing line. Thanks to this tumblr and check out Chambers website here.
"CHAMBERS is clothing that communicates their wearable story for people who are driven to live real life. Using a mix of fabrics that are as comfortable as they are strong, both durable and movable, and held together subtly by military inspired construction techniques, they make clothes that are designed to be timeless and last at least that long. Every piece wears uniquely to its owner making Chambers collaboration between them and you. "

I recently bought a mug with a replica of Gustav Klimt's paintings, Adele Bloch-Bauer I . This sparked an interest in his work so I researched a little and I decided to make another comparison.
Photographed by Gavin Bond, these were shot for Newsweek magazine, Oscar Roundtable. These portraits supposedly bring out the personality of each individual actor. I like them, they're beautiful.
