I have fallen in love with the blog DustJacket Attic.
Her posts contain amazing imagery from photo shoots from tons of fashion magazines, such as Vogue magazines from various countries (a recent one was from Vogue Korea, a magazine I used to get when I lived there for three years) and now that I design jewelry, I'm finding that I look at these photographs in an entirely new way.
The glitter of diamond against fragile tulle and a black dress makes me think of putting together an elaborate pearl, crystal, and jet necklace -- not a bracelet, but a necklace because her neck is so elegant. (Photo from Vogue US, Oct 2009)
COLOR! My favorite thing. This makes me want to fire up the torch and make bead after bead in every possible combination of these colors. (From V magazine 2008)
And the shoes. Oh sweet heavens. It's all about the shoes. From someone who has had plantar fasciitis surgery and is now relegated to only wearing Birkenstocks and Danskos (hangs her head in sadness), gazing in longing at the type of shoes I used to blithely go out dancing in is sheer joy. Painful in more ways than one, but sheer joy. (From Vogue Nippon 2005)
Do yourself a favor, and visit her blog, add yourself to her many followers, and give yourself a daily eye-candy treat.
Now I'm off to visit the shoes.
