I am in love with the color palette of Camilla & Marc‘s Fall ’09 collection! The shoes are fabulous too! What do you guys think? Head over to the always-awesome KnightCat if you want to see more photos from the show!

Ever since Lark About posted a few shots of British supermodel Jean Shrimpton the other day, I have been on a kick, collecting images of her! They’re great old fashion photos, and she has such a classic look! Love!

I came across a Jean look alike http://www.flickr.com/jeanieshrimpton the woman is older in her photos than Jean was in the photos shown. But there is a remarkable resemblance. I think the look alike has a better nose.

I’ve enjoyed browsing through Polanoid, where these pictures are from, for a good part of this morning! Polanoid is in the process of building the biggest Polaroid-picture-collection on the planet to celebrate the magic of instant photography. I don’t know that it beats Flickr, but I like it! Check it out if you are a fan of photos!

I love poloroids and I wish that they weren't a dying art form! But if you are interested you can take a class at Peter's Valley Craft Center called 'The Last Poloroid Workshop' August 21-24 (4 days) Check out the website www.petersvalley.org :) You could be part of something big in the photography world!!

I’m finding some inspiration today in these cool pictures from Hedi Slimane Fashion Diary. If you’ve never visited it, definitely check it out! It has enough fashion photography to keep you busy for hours and hours!

hair & make-up

I was really struck by this editorial posted on KnightCat earlier today – but what really gets me is the make-up! Everyone at KnightCat was commenting on the hair. Her hair is great, but that eye make-up is just incredible! If I thought I could ever apply those gorgeous eyelashes in the first picture (without poking my eyes out) I would in a second!
What do you guys think? And does anyone happen to know what magazine these shots came from?

I visited several blogs except the audio quality for audio songs existing at this site is genuinely wonderful.

I’m not sure I can explain The Uniform Project any better than the woman herself, so here is a quote from the website:
Starting May 2009, I have pledged to wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion. Here’s how it works: There are 7 identical dresses, one for each day of the week. Every day I will reinvent the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accoutrements, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies. Think of it as wearing a daily uniform with enough creative license to make it look like I just crawled out of the Marquis de Sade’s boudoir.
The Uniform Project is also a year-long fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India. At the end of the year, all contributions will go toward Akanksha’s School Project to fund uniforms and other educational expenses for slum children in India.

So freaking awesome! Check out all her outfits so far here.

Ah! I love finding treasures like this on YouTube! Here’s some footage of The Jimi Hendrix Experience playing Hey Joe and Sunshine of Your Love on the old British television show It’s Lulu. It’s pretty clear for being old and on YouTube, and it’s absolutely mesmerizing. Enjoy!

I love the way Mario Sughi uses bright colors in his fashion illustrations! I really enjoy his drawing style too, the lines seem to fall really casually, yet they are clearly thought out. Check out his site for more vibrant illustrations!

You may remember a bit more than a week ago when these shorts appeared in one of the Office Style posts. They are vintage by Steel Jeans, and quite of a few of you asked about them – I really liked them too! As you can see above, Courtney, the owner of the shorts, lent them to me for a day so that I could look them over and prepare to make my own pair! I did, and it was super easy! Here’s how I did it!
First I color-copied Courtney’s shorts, so that I could have a real-sized pattern of the patches on the front. It also really helped to have a guide for placement! I have posted the pictures I used on Flickr so you can use them too! Click on the picture, then original size to get the whole huge picture! Print them out and you have the patterns too!
Next I went home and picked out a pair of shorts I wanted to alter, and some pretty fabric for the patches!

You might notice that my fabric is very wrinkly! I highly recommend ironing any fabric you use for this project, but I don’t have an iron, so as for me, I just had to wing it! I folded the fabric I chose for the patches in half, and then drew an outline of one of the patterns on it. You could also use each pattern and draw each side separately.
My shorts are quite a bit bigger than Courtney’s, so I drew my outline out a bit from the outline of the pattern to compensate.
IMG_9198.JPG
Then I cut the patches out, and pinned them to the shorts! I used the color copy of Courtney’s shorts as a guide.
IMG_9207.JPG
Next, I sewed them down! I used a sewing machine for this part, but I think it would also be very easy to sew this by hand. With the sewing machine I had to be very careful not to sew down the pockets of my shorts!
Halfway finished!
IMG_9213.JPG
Ta Da! Finished!

They turned out pretty good, right? I love them!
If any of you make shorts too, send us a picture of you wearing them at blog.freepeople@gmail.com! I would love to see how yours turn out!

Style Bubble posted these shots of Alice McColm‘s amazing collection from a recent show. All the pieces are so inspiring – I love the delicate knits, and the colors are just perfect! I searched for Alice McColm, hoping to find a designer site or some kind of information, but I came up with nothing! Do you guys know anything about this designer?
