i’ve been wanting to post about the new film, the great gatsby for a couple of weeks now. i spent my morning looking at the BHLDN site and watching the 1974 version of the great gatsby and realized that i finally had my post inspiration! the costumes were so beautiful in this film! i’ve kinda always wanted to throw a roaring 20s party just so i have an excuse to dress that glamorous. after searching BHLDN, i found some pieces that really said, “gatsby” to me and you can add them to your outfit without actually attending a themed party.
now lets talk about the cast! the 1974 version starred mia farrow and robert redford, both of whom i love. this year we get to see leonardo dicaprio, carey mulligan, isla fisher, and toby maguire, to name a few. i have a feeling this will be my favorite leo film since romeo+juliet (they both happen to be directed by baz luhrmann).
i had a lot of fun looking at all of the book covers made for the f. scott fitzgerald novel. they are so beautiful, i love how these artists capture bits from the movie and make them into the book cover. there must be a version for each theme of the story, money; greed; beauty; love, passion….how much do you love the gold modern look?
i’ll definitely be there may 11 watching in awe, i’m sure.

yeah, i’d wear that

sometimes it’s so nice to see a bunch of pretty things all in one place! here is a new installment where i’ll post a few pretty items that make me sigh. let’s begin with these fantastic sunglasses from owl. these three german guys got together and created a line of sunglasses that are stylish and not too expensive. “woot-woot!”

row, row, row your boat

last week, we wrote about spring style. here’s a sweet little video that sums up our day on the canals and you can really see beatrice’s dress in action.

by the way, i have to mention that i learned how to make videos in february at video blogshop! bri and angela are so great that they actually teach you how to make videos in photoshop in 1 day! i have a long way to go with my video skills but while editing, i was able to see all the things i can do differently for next time and i  know that they will just get better and better! so look out! for now, enjoy this one.

time away

kimber here, and back from a quick trip to palm springs. i’m feeling pretty inspired by the beautiful colors we worked with while we were there.

we are on the brink of our one year anniversary of the two, so cassa and i planned to take some new pictures for our website since we actually don’t have any of us on there at the moment. stay tuned for the reveal. it’s pretty exciting because we have learned so many things this year and are very excited to share them. the website is having a makeover and we can’t wait for you to see!

we can’t get enough of the spring time outfits. we must be ready to rid our closets of the plain colors and make room for new and fresh items. i know i wore a lot of black this winter.
for a little extra inspiration, we pulled beatrice away from her internship at who what wear and after a trip to the friday farmer’s market we rowed along the venice canals to let the sun shine on our faces.
here is what she has to say:
while it’s safe to say that sequins never really left the trend radar, most of the 2013 runway shows sported dresses, pants and shirts that glimmered in the catwalk lights. previously, sequins have been attributed to nights out on the town, and the only acceptable sequined outfits were those that were adorned in moderation. now, designers squeezed models into entire outfits that were purely glitter and shimmer.
that’s when i found this dress in my closet. completely embroidered on the top, and a beige high-low at the bottom, it seems to be an extravagant dress that never really found it’s way into any of my formal events or dinner dates. the beauty of this dress lies with how the pailettes work together with the sheer high-low. combined with neutral colors, sequins are day-time suitable, which is what this dress is all about. now that sequins are acceptable for day-time attire—hooray!—i knew that this dress was ready to leave the hanger._MG_1774
not too flashy, not too casual—and the cut-out sides take away from the “girly” factor and make it a little more playful._MG_1794

so don’t limit yourself to neon colors and floral prints; try the sequin trends and look tres chic for the beautiful spring days.

thanks to beatrice for being a superb model.
