Florence + The Machine

I am captivated with Florence Welch's voice, and her style.
 Little Boots and Florence Welch pose at the afterparty for the Shockwaves NME Awards 2009 held at Brixton Academy on February 25, 2009 in London, England.  via
She is so eye catching in the dress she worn to the Grammys this year <3  my favorite!

There are so many amazing photos of this talented front woman that I'm having a hard time picking and choosing!
 She always looks amazing at shows!

There are so many more images worth posting- but find them yourself on google!

Florence Welch..what a woman!!  I love her sheer layers and the way she can rock the runway looks!

The Simple Things in Life

Something as basic, boring and horribly symbolic as a chain linked fence can be changed into a beautiful piece of art work.  Dutch design house Demakersvan has made beautiful fences in The Lace Fence project.  This a direct quote from the web site, I couldn't think of any better way of describing their philosophy.
       "Lace Fence is a design of Dutch Design House Demakersvan. It is a high-end metal fabric that gives new insights in how you can create unique environments.
It combines the ancient craft of lace making with the industrial chainlink fence. Every fence is unique in its design by its craft and assembled patterns, which come in a variety of themes. From antique lace floral to contemporary designs and custom art patterns.
Lace Fence shows how something which was meant purely functional can also be decorative. Hostility versus kindness, industry versus craft."

I love the scale of these projects.  Free art on a massive scale for all to enjoy- the world is a happier place.  I also am in love with this project from The Fun Theory (from VolksWagon).  Musical Stairs that actually encourage people to use their two feet instead of taking the escalator every time!  Genius!

Spring is alomst here!

I don't know where you are but here in NC we have been spoiled to have a good number of days going on 60degrees and sunny!  I'm loving the wind too!  This all makes me happy and pumped up for spring collection!  Well, about making spring clothing and wearing spring clothing...  Sure I love stripes and plaids but flowers are so cute and sweet!

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Caught this movie on netflix during my death days in bed.  I love the gypsy fashion and life style of living in a wagon.  Also- I like stories where the devil is really rooting for the underdog because he's bored...Lily Cole, beautiful, tall, red head who plays Valentine, was precious; along with the all star cast <3
