Dreamy Inspiration

January 31, 2010

Since the new year, my travel and work schedule has been on overdrive.  I think that is why I just can’t stop looking at these dreamy photographs.  The light, the colors, the mood, I just crave their promise of spring and daydreams.  “Calgon, take me away.”


The spring 2010 Hermes advertising campaign photographed by Paolo Roversi featuring model Karlie Kloss

Here she looks like Persephone the goddess of spring, with a fabulous Hermes bracelet of course.  (I have been watching the HBO series Rome on all the flights to and from Las Vegas.  Guess I have gods and goddesses on the brain.)

Actually, it looks like she is in Greece even!

Ahhhhhh sleep.  I miss you.

Step into spring with these fabulous shoes…I wish.


I also love these images by photographer Marcelo Gome I found posted the other day on one of my favorite blogs, Daucus Carota.

Daucus Carota is authored by graphic artist Jessica Sutton and the name of her blog is so appropriate.  The Daucus Carota flower or Queen Anne’s lace, as it is often known, has a wild, dream-like quality and so does Jessica.  Go check out her blog and her work.


Even my favorite fashion blogger Sea of Shoes seems engulfed in a winter haze, just dreaming of spring.


Fashion for Spring

Speaking of fashion,  I think the Spring 2010 collection from Proenza Schouler has hit the nail on the head; dreamy and colorful, yet brave.  I want to be this girl for spring…

I have these two Simply Vera by Vera Wang tops that could translate into that Proenza girl perhaps…and at a fraction of the price.


One last image in which to leave you: The view from my hotel room in Vegas this morning with the full moon.
