On this particular Sunday afternoon, I enjoyed looking at Jody Rogac's portrait series, it's divided into studio and location, below are some of my favourites, you may recognise a few people. Enjoy
A couple of months ago I received an e-mail from Danielle Atkinson(owner and designer of Milk from a thistle), informing me that their Spring/ Summer collection was on it's way, so I eagerly waited and finally it's here! Known for her cool digital prints, the S/S collection introduced us to her latest stand out prints- 'Birdhouse' and 'Fox Field'. These delightful pieces seem practical and easy to wear, together with those drool worthy prints and the pop of colour,it's perfect for every woman during the warmer months of the year.
Bows and Bandits is a cool vintage online store, I really fancy their latest look book, it's just so pretty. The colour palette is also so appealing (to me anyway), I fancy the deep reds and earthy tones, I honestly wish it was Winter all over again, I would wear every piece.
Here are some really cool illustrations showing off some of the Haute Couture AW 2013 looks illustrated by Ignasi Monreal for V magazine Spain.

Oooo aaah, Steve McQueen, the 'King of cool', he was a man's man, a rebel and rough, he was every women's fantasy and I must admit he has temporarily become mine. When I spotted these, I hopped over to this baby and decided to share. These images are so real, raw and unpretentious, they were shot by John Dominis who was allowed to enter his home and capture this hottie with his then wife, Neile Adams. Enjoy

I'm still quite smitten with this catalogue and I thought I have to share it with you. It's vintage inspired and fabulous. I absolutely love the hair, red lips and basically every piece.
This blog post is short and sweet. I just love these top knot paintings by Elizabeth Mayville. Visit her etsy shop here
I was browsing the internet (as per usual) and stumbled upon this look book for Club Monaco, (thanks to the awesome Michael from a continuos lean), I'm a little late with this but oh well. Initially,I was gawking at the model with the hair (he's so pretty) and then I looked at the clothes. I like the sweatpants, classic suits, chunky knit cardigans and colour palette, all very appropriate for Fall.
Charlotte Taylor's S/S 2012 collection was inspired by Japanese art and culture, it's pretty evident if you ask me. I'm also going crazy over these cool prints, from fish to bonsai trees. So zen like, so awesome.
Something I would like in my life. My mother had a printed suit that she wore in the 70's but unfortunately she gave it away- boo hoo!
