Instagrams of the Week

Hey guys,

I've been pretty active on Instagram, playing with different filters (by the way, don't you just love the toaster and Nashville one? :)) And I just can't get enough of it.

In fact, I love it so much that I thought I would do a post from time to time, featuring my favorite Instagram pics.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I had photographing them:)

Vintage Photo #2

Whenever I start rummaging among the old photos in our family album, I feel like a detective in Stieg Larsson thriller. Okay, maybe by saying this I overdo it, but it does give me the kind of rush that I expect a detective would feel after putting together the missing pieces of a puzzle.

What drew me to this photograph was the woman. She looks so poised with her arm wrapped protectively around the baby boy, her face soft and graceful. I wonder what story is hidden behind those eyes?

Then, I noticed her fashionably oversized coat, trimmed with, I'm guessing real fur. I love the richness of the collar, I think any woman would look regal in such a coat. I think the shiny material the coat is made of could be velvet, but I'm not sure. The gorgeous brooches on the waist of the coat really add the finishing touch. Are those x-s or butterflies on them? Every time I look at this photo, I just want to hold these brooches and feel their cold weight in my hand.

The people on some photos in my old photo album are of course family, whereas some photos are those of complete strangers, their identity forever lost in history. The only thing I know about this photo for sure, is that it was taken in 1926 in Bitonto, Italy because there is a stamp on the back of this photograph.

Have a happy weekend!

Vivienne Westwood designs Costumes for the Vienna New Year's Concert 2014

I love January 1. Everything is so fresh and full of promise (and you still actually believe that you're going to stick to your New Year's Resolutions;)) True, I am usually a bit tired from partying all night, but I love waking up late, having a cup of tea while nursing my hangover and watching the ''Wiener Philharmoniker'', the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra's New Year's Day Concert. The best hangover cure ever!

This year, the enfant terrible, the first lady of Punk, Vivienne Westwood, was chosen to design the costumes for the intermission ballet. Needless to say, most of her designs are based on the timeless tartan which looks amazing on the dancers. They remind me of little punk fairies floating in the air in their little tartan dresses. In black ballet shoes. This is Vivienne's Wonderland.

The dresses for the second act of the ballet intermission were a bit more classic. I love the fact that they look like ball gowns from the Cinderella's ball - with really opulent crinolines! The color palette is also more neutral, ranging from colder tones, sandy and baby blues to warmer tones, golds and rich plums.

Hope you had a fabulous New Year's Party!
