Painting and Fashion

Over the past couple of days, I have found various stories online that are all about painting, in one form or another.

The first is about company that paints ads on walls, I didn't even know large companies still used this form of advertising, I am pretty sure I do not have ads that are this cool in my city scape.

Then I found this awesome recreation of Van Gogh portrait done with photography. Even if you don't like Van Gogh, you gotta admire this guy for interpreting a work of art in a new and clever way. You gotta watch the video not just look at the still. The photographer, Tadao Cern, has an interesting story. He was an architect and then decided he wanted to try something else. He takes wedding photos, and likes to do different experiments like the Van Gogh as well as portraits of people while they are having blasts of air blown in their faces. Think comically cartoon versions of what your face would look like if you fell at an alarming fast rate.

And finally, I was stunned(along with the rest of the world) to see Kate Middleton's first official Royal portrait. She's so pretty and vibrant, and the portrait does not capture that at all. I keep thinking couldn't someone see where this was going & said to the painter, thank you but we have to go in a different direction...... I hope she get's a better one sometime soon, but until then I thought I'd share some of my favorite outfits of hers thus far.

Alexander McQueen + Velvet = Awesome

Amazing in a red wrap dress by Beulah London

A flowing lavender dream also by McQueen

Not many people can pull off an intricate interwoven bodice, but she can.....beautifully. I was surprised this was a vintage dress,it looks so modern to me.

This one is one of my favorites I love the lace detail.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Floral Print Excitement

I'm not much of a girly girl but I am sucker for a floral print. Most of my favorite clothes have some kind of floral or abstract patter...
