10 things to love

August 12th, 2008

1.Lots of beautiful photos from fittings and backstage at Rodarte. The dresses, the shoes! oh blimey.

2. Temporary tattoos by Julia Pott, available at her etsy shop. I want the unicorn. Julia also made this animation that must be seen by all asap.

3. Vintage dresses at My Favorite Vintage on etsy.

4. Two ladies rocking pink from copenhagen street style & the sartorialist.

5. Amazing pictures from the Olympic opening ceremony in Beijing. I watched the whole thing on tv and it was brilliant, though I actually said that the footprints looked computer generated at the time!

6. I found mixed media and textiles designer Karen Nicol‘s website via a post on stylebubble and love everything she does.

7. The most perfect lingerie by Stella McCartney at net-a-porter.

8. New season catalogue photos and videos at Sally Scott. I always look forward to these and they don’t disappoint.

9. Fun headbands from ban.do by stylist duo Jen and Jamie.

10. The latest issue of Lazy Soosan zine by illustrators Laura and Lucy is available at their shop.

  13. tamsin says:

    I haven’t got time to do my usual hunt through the interwebs to find nice things, thanks to moving houses and jobs, so this post has done nicely! I am already planning how I will wear a tiger tattoo. I love that lingerie so much, but have long since stopped expecting anything to be in my size, ever. I need architectural support rather than pretty things, sigh.
    I love those headbands! My mum has been playing around making me feathered head dresses and headbands recently and I’m a bit obsessed x


  14. i just came across your blog and i must admit, i’m in love! i especially love the ridiculously girly vintage dresses. they’re all so pretty and perfect for summer. would you like to trade links? xxx

    … and it’s official, I’ve bookmarked all the bookmarkable, so thanks really :)


  16. Lillian says:

    Kris, you seem to be quite the knowledge on Etsy, and I know you can get gorgeous stuff on there but I never have time to trawl. My friend owes me a birthday present and I’d quite like a nice accessory, maybe a necklace or something to wear in my hair. Any ideas/recommendations? x

    Hey Lillian!
    Just off the top of my head:
    I like the pea necklaces from Rachael Sudlow, everything by Stephanie Simek and Paraphernalia. There’s some pretty feathery things at VieModerne and charm school design.
    I hope you find something that catches your fancy! x


  17. Jessica says:

    so yea I love your blog so much and think it is utterly amazing. Everytime I come the pictures are dazzling..you have this amazing eye.

  23. claire says:

    the rodarte photos look much more like backstage at the ballet than a fashion shoot/show!


  24. Sarah says:

    I love all of them too! Especially the headbands!

    Was wondering… what camera do you use? =)

    A perfectly beautiful list — Rodarte has been an obsession for as long as I can remember, Julia’s animation was so adorable it was almost heartbreaking, and Stella’s sheer lingerie is just lovely.

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  34. […] around the blogosphere this lovely Saturday morning, I happened to stumble across this post in which artist Julia Pott’s temporary tattoos are listed as “one of the top ten […]

  35. gina kay says:

    The opening ceremony photos from NYT are impressive. They remind me of Andreas Gursky photos.


  36. Wow. This post is great. I want to go out for tea and cake now and buy one of these gorgeous Julia Pott tatts…! Thanks for finding all these nice and inspiring things!


  37. Oh my goodness Krisatomic…I am so in love with you. tee hee. Everything you post I fall in love with. We seriously have the same taste…but you just seem to find all the gorgeous things before me. I wish you could post more and more so I can see all the other gorgeous things you are inspired by so I can be inspired too. thank you so much.

    Oh and maybe I could return the favor by inpiring you with some of my finds from Stockholm creatives. check out my blog!

    I also thought that the footprints were CG too! and that the little girl obviously was lip-syncing, yet people seemed so surprised when they heard the news. I wonder why people don’t use their own senses to watch a a show anymore.


  39. ryder says:

    ladies in denmark look absolutely gorgeus and feminine. i dont know wich one of them is better.
