A Moment of Inspiration

You know how you often have those moments where you encounter an image or experience feeling that’s uncanny, you instantly feel transported into another realm of thought? This is one of those photos for me. I came across it online and I could’nt seem to put it past me. There’s youth, potential for the future and a great sense of wonder in this image. I just love it.

VOGUE VOICES: Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs is the latest fashion powerhouse to sit down in front of the camera for Vogue magazine’s “VOGUE VOICES” series, where the tattooed designer explains, “why he prizes style over fashion, why working in Paris still feels like a scene from Funny Face, and why his morning doesn’t really begin until he goes to the gym.”

Quote of the Day

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.”

— Gianni Versace

Quote of the Day

 “Don’t use expensive clothes as a screen for your personal doubts. Be proud of yourself and not only because you wear expensive designer clothes. They are great, but lots of people are happy without them. You come first, the clothes later.”

– Karl Lagerfeld, Harper’s Bazaar

Quote of the Day

 “I belonged to no one — who belonged to everyone, who had nothing — who wanted everything with a fire for every experience and an obsession for freedom that terrified me to the point that I couldn’t even talk about — and pushed me to a nomadic point of madness that both dazzled and dizzied me.”

 – Lana Del Rey, Ride

Quote Of The Day

“After the war and the austerity years, the means to control how you were seen were newly available to the young.  And so was the ability to distinguish yourself visually from your parents.  From the Teddy Boys in the Fifties to the Mods and Rockers who took over, and on to the mini-skirted dollybirds of the mid-Sixties and the diaphanous hippies of the later Sixties, many more young people than ever before had, for various reasons, enough money to pay for dramatic self-definition.”

 Jenny Diski, The Sixties

Let the last sentence resonate with you, it goes beyond the sixties era and even past today’s day… (excerpt via Susie Bubble)

Quote Of The Day

 “The trigger gave; I felt the smooth underside of the butt; and there, in that noise, sharp and deafening at the same time, is where it all started. I shook off the sweat and the sun. I knew that I had shattered the harmony of the day, the exceptional silence of a beach where I’d been happy. Then I fired four more times at the motionless body where the bullets lodged without leaving a trace. And it was like knocking four quick times on the door of unhappiness.”

The Stranger, by Albert Camus
