Tumblr Tuesday: Salami Signs and Software Pirates

Something about this Swedish sitting room feels beach-y and mod at the same time; I'm liking the idea of a short-short dress with a bright red blazer for New Year's; Thumbs up for non-corny letterpress wedding invitations in one of my favorite color combinations; A Send A Salami sign is the perfect fodder for inappropriate-yet-clever banter; If I could fit things over my hair I'd wear headdresses ALL THE TIME; This literal interpretation of a...

Tumblr Tuesday: Wishlist Edition!

I've had my eye on this asymmetric draped blouse for a while; A delicate type pattern makes this sweet little bowtie the perfect blend of masculine and feminine; After several unsuccessful DIY attempts, it's time to graduate to a real flash diffuser; I tend to be pretty hard on bags--this big leather beauty looks like my next victim; I'm afraid I can no longer deny it: I want an iPad, please; My inner font fiend...

Tumblr Tuesday: Tree Beds and Driftwood Horses

I wanted a canopy bed SO badly when I was little--this tree bed would've been right up my alley; QR codes seem to be everywhere these days, but I've never seen a QR code in 3-D;  ABT soloist Misty Copeland (she's a favorite of PRINCE, y'all) has been an inspiration since I first read about her in Suede magazine years ago; This horse sculpture created from found driftwood is grotesquely lovely; I love that the...

Current Obsession: Camera Purses

Camera bags exist to serve a very specific function: to safely and securely hold camera equipment. Most have padded compartments designed to fit a DSLR camera body, a lens or two, a flash, and maybe spot for cash and keys. Unfortunately, they're usually UGLY. I'm talking black-and-gray-nylon-and-elasticized-mesh ugly.When I'm carrying my camera around getting street style shots or working on a photography project, I prefer to carry a bag that...
