Pale Warmth

I haven't had the time to update this blog properly. I am always working and the only day off I have is usually meant to be spent resting, sleeping and eating without being in a hurry. No outfit posts so far because: a) I look terrible with this panda-like dark circles and b) I can't be bothered with playing dress up when it's so hot outside. I envy those who are lucky enough to be on holidays right now.

My, my! This playsuit is everything I've ever wanted.

These burger socks are so cool!

Take me to this place right now.

I can't decide which I love the most: the bathroom or the wallpaper.

I really like the girl in this photo.

Lest we forget the women of the Mexican Revolution aka Las Soldaderas.

Weekly Randoms #11

LUSH products have been my latest obsession.

I'm in love with these two here. Which do you prefer?

A nocturnal shot I snapped at some club - JJ and the Dan The Dane.

I promised myself to send these postcards. Owning them defies the purpose.

Mafalda and Pedro together in my hometown.

Style Icon: Audrey Horne

For those who have never heard of her, let me introduce you to Audrey... Not Hepburn, not Tautou... It's Audrey Horne and her killer sense of style. I fell in love with this fictional character and her wardrobe the moment I started watching Twin Peaks. Played by Sherilyn Fenn, Audrey is the girl who puts the chic in the schoolgirl chic. Cool, stylish and seductively charming, Miss Horne pulls off an 1950s-inspired silhouette and sense of style like no other student at Twin Peaks High School. Exuding attitude and a femme fatale-like allure yet feeling vulnerable about the fact that she's madly in love with Special Agent Dale Cooper (who wouldn't?), Audrey is the bad girl gone good, affection deprived (her father runs a brothel and ignores his own daughter) and hiding behind a mask of coquette confidence. From saddle shoes to red pumps, vintage sweaters paired with pleated plaid midi skirts or high waisted pencil skirts, retro cardigans... Not to mention those feline eyebrows! David Lynch has created many inspiringly unforgettable female characters loaded with charisma and charm... and this one proves it right.

The Silence of Dogs in Cars by Martin Usborne

This project is really something. Strongly influenced by a childhood memory, London-based fine art photographer Martin Usborne captured the very core of this tale of loneliness, silence and abandonment - experienced by our dear canine friends. Usborne's photos remind us of what dogs go through at the hands of humans and the fear of being alone, abandoned, trapped and unheard - a fear we all share, dogs and humans. I love these photos and obviously had to share them with everyone else. The reactions of dogs locked inside a vehicle are highlighted in a subtle yet haunting way, some sad, some expectant, some fearful, some angry... Sitting and waiting for someone to come back for them or something to happen. The dark atmosphere take us to our own childhood memories, triggering the same fear and feeling of unease we all felt at least once in our lives. Piercingly poignant, how those dogs express exactly what humans would feel under such distressing situation.
