Fashion Photog

Today while bumming around the internets, I discovered the site for fashion photog Rinze van Brug. Rinze has an interesting spectrum of work highly inspired by music. According to his bio, "with new music constantly hitting the scene Rinze utilizes the fusion of music, life and art in his photography". Some of my favorite photographs are posted below.

Go to his site and check out some more of his work, or check out Dutch House of Photography.

Little Miss Precious

I recently picked up the August issue of Elle Magazine, although quite reluctantly since Miley Cyrus was the cover (sorry Q. I know you lover her) but I am so happy that I did. I've actually found that I really love Elle Magazine I think their fashion spreads are amazing, as you can see from the pictures above from the spread "Little Miss Precious." The model is Kemp Muhl and it was photgraphed by Ellen von Unwerth. I love everything about this spread. The girl, look, clothes, make up. I think the whole "girly girl gone bad" is just the perfect look for fall, so I of course had to share!

So C. and I explored Princeton today for our soon to come Fashion Profile of town. On our expedition, after ogling the cute Ugly Dolls and precious handmade-type stuffed animals at Jazams, we decided we must start some DIY in our lives. I remember coming across a few blogs with DIY projects in the past. I searched through my millions of bookmarks to find some must-try items.

I remember about 3 years ago a friend in my fashion class had a tshirt on with an intricate spine print on the back. It was so unique and has stuck in my mind since. On Pixie's Bubble, a great blog for fun DIY alternatives to runway wear, I came across her spine cutout Hane's tee. This is number one on my list to try, though I imagine it'll take a bit of practice to make the design look as good as hers!
Next, I recently received an email from my dad with a DIY video by Threadbanger. "How-to Make a Rockabilly Summer Outfit" shows how to make an adorable 50's styled swimsuit out of a men's collared shirt. (Also, the Grease inspired plot of the video hit close to home since I was Sandy in my HS musical of Grease!) This swimsuit is another definite DIY to try, but will require a bit more skill than perfecting cutting a shirt.

For my last DIY item, I discovered embellished tights that will be oh so exciting once the weather cools down. Now, this project would probably be the most time consuming and concentration/precision based, but Cocorosa gives step by step instructions to make the flirty, unique tights. I want to try making a stunner pair of party tights for winter break. Maybe a black sheer tight with sequins here and there, sort of like a chameleon. We'll see if I have the time in Paris to start creating :)

Well everyone, I'd say it's about time to get crafty and start creating your own DIY amazingness. Until next time... xo.

PS I promise to be posting more now.

In Style

I recently came across a photoshoot and article about Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordin-Levitt from the new film (500) Days of Summer. I luckily got to see the film early in New York City yesterday and loved it, but I wanted to share the photoshoot from the August 2009 In Style magazine.
In love with the setting;
In love with the clothes;
In love with the people;
In love.

Oh Audrey

I have been using most of my time in the past week to research everything and anything about the wonderful Ms. Audrey Hepburn. I have always been interested in learning about her but never had the time, and never had her movies on hand. Recently for my 19th birthday I got a box set with three of her many movies she stared in, the classic Breakfast At Tiffany's also Roman Holiday and Sabrina. I've have fallen in love with her classic and classy looks.

I hope all you bloggers will go out and rent ALL of her movies even the ones I have yet to see and get some inspiration for yourself, for now here is some of my favorite photos.

Beautiful hair, makeup, and clothes! So classy.
