i was a little late getting on the Mamma Mia train, but i finally saw it last night and all i can say, is that, if i had the money, i'd be on the first flight to greece! UNBELIEVABLEscenery... but, my favorite part, of course, was the set design.
the textiles, paint colors, antiques left me drooling for more...
Josef Frank textiles (remember this anthropologie chair!?) hanging on the clotheslines....
checking in on my google reader this morning, exploring new blogs and i come across camp comforts- a fantastic little fashion news and inspiration site, when i see this:
i literally almost pee myself with excitement, thinking that some stylist has seen outside of the box and used my cape in a shoot for women!
the cape (and full ensemble) is credited to APC. lovely. ok, maybe i am nutso, but all I can say is it looks awfully similar to this (by me):
now, not to get confused with my last post... i am all for cheering on the little guy, the stay-at-home mom, the crafter, who is inspired by a piece of (high) fashion and wants to set out on their own, on their little SINGER with pin-pricked fingers and attempt to re-create.
go for it.
i wish i had the time.
but, when a huge fashion company takes more than inspiration (we are talking down to the buttons here, kids) from the little guy, i get pissed.
on my VERY long list of projects this holiday season: a wreath
i don't yet know if we will have a christmas tree in the traditional sense in our very small apartment, so do i go for the smell of pine with the wreath or, do i go for color, whimsy or just flat out cool? these are getting my juices flowing...
