The Swinging 40s

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

The 1940s, what an era. Fashion, music, romance, movies, war, industry it all happened during this time and I think that's the reason why it was such an incredible time in history. I often look back at it in regards to the fashion and music, and how it inspired so many people today. You can look at runway shows and see dresses and hairstyles, you can hear music that musicians listen to today. I wonder what it would have been like, but I guess I can try to live through it in things today.

An Arizona Vacation

Sadly I am not going to New York on my Summer break. But some recent turn of events has me going to Phoenix, Arizona. So here is another wishlist. It's going to be super hot, so I figure bright colors (to keep the sun off) and tribal prints would be a perfect wardrobe to wear for 3 days.

I am really in love with the new Ruche Lookbook for Summer. The photography is spectacular and the colors are so gorgeous. They have a certain way of displaying the clothing and making it really feel inspirational. Plus, the text they have used this time is really perfect.

A New York Vacation Wishlist

Sunday, June 5, 2011

Have you ever looked back at vacation photos and thought 'What the hell was I wearing?' Well I do that a lot, but since I'm going to New York in July, I want to make sure I'm prepared. I'll only be there for four days, but I figure I might as well have choices. Bright colors and being comfortable is what I'm aiming for this time, so here are a few choices. I guess we'll see what happens.
