.boots, my painting & saturday plans.

the past couple of weeks have been incredibly busy as i prep for a week-trip to ny. the hurricane is on its way through and i'm anxious for my sisters in the city-i know they're taking all the safety precautions and praying the storm will pass harming no one in its path. with the sun blazing and intense heat wave in arizona, temperatures reaching record highs, my plans are to keep cool, tidy the apartment & catch up on all of the september issues!

below are the marni boots and painting that are on my favorite list this week- i found the boots, originally $900 for $60 dollars at nordstrom rack and cannot wait to stomp around in them this fall. the painting is an entertaining story, after a year plus of having two blank canvas up on my wall i finally took the plunge and re-interpreted one of my favorite rothkos- i love how it turned out and have a picture below on the prep and supplies...

have an amazing weekend and make sure to take time out for your own inspirations, keep safe and dry east coast!

.dustland fairytale.

saw cinderella in a party dress, she was looking for a nightgown.
i saw the devil wrapping up his hands, he's getting ready for the showdown.
i saw the minute that i turned away, i got my money on a pawn tonight.

change came in disguise of revelation, set his soul on fire.
she said she always knew he'd come around.
and the decades disappear
like sinking ships but we persevere.
god gives us hope but we still fear what we don't know.

- dustland fairytale, the killers paired with charlotte casiraghi, september vogue paris

away for the weekend and will be visiting antique shops in tucson, but i can't wait to share the art piece i made & boots when i get back!

happy weekend! xxo, dany

.a lack of color.

and when i see you
i really see you upside down
but my brain knows better
it picks you up and turns you around
turns you around, turns you around

- death cab for cutie, a lack of color

my love brought me to a favorite of mine's last night and the performance was incredible. death cab played so many of my favorite songs-i have never been to such a crowd pleasing concert and am thrilled i was lucky enough to go.

.miss tilda plays dress up & giovanni's diary.

 "i would rather be handsome, as he is, for an hour than pretty for a week"
                                                                                     - tilda on her fascination with her father's style

august's w magazine is the perfect escape post hectic work day. tilda swinton is featured this month with an interesting article on her oscar dress by lanvin's alber elbaz and her acting slash fashion inspirations. famous for her androgynous image, her pictures are a bit spooky but beautifully crafted. continuing to flip through (backwards of course which is how i typically get through fashion magazines) i was pleasantly surprised that giovanni battaglia has a monthly section entitled "gio's journal" a picture diary of travel, experiences and people she has encountered over the past month. overall, w made for a fantastic night and i'm now considering a permanent subscription.

.a sorta fairytale.

editorial perfection from grace coddington. i loved her interviews in the 'september issue'-grace revealed her intricate thought process and passion for soft focus photography.

a true original-i always look foward to flipping through her pages of vogue.

.united nude.

i get so excited visiting united nude's website, the shoes are structurally beautiful and to me look like mini modern buildings/landmarks.

i absolutely love their spring/summer collection but by far my favorite shoes are their rich leather boots....ah, fall...

.fashion plank.

i'm pretty late to the planking fascination- but this interpretation is both lighthearted & fashion-driven, i love it.

.screenshot inspiration.

below is a screen shot of of my desktop's current images. ombre hair, should i or shouldn't i?, vogue ten best dressed list, every monday rain or shine, red bangles and a red sweater courtesy of stockholm streetstyle & last and certainly most, a sneak peek a mouseroar's progress on happy and bleeding-great way to finish off a hectic monday.

...a little reading then off to bed.

.angry beautiful.

i adore the passion in these photos for dolce & gabbana's spring 2011 campaign. i think the lovely focal point is that the women in these photos are so perfectly primped and enraged at the same time.
