The Hendrix Jacket - White • Spell & The Gypsy Collective We grew up pouring over photos from Woodstock 69' and even back then I knew that one day I wanted a jacket like the beaded tasseled leather number Jimi Hendrix wore on stage. And so we looked back to our childhood memories once again for the inspiration with this jacket. Made in a soft white leather, the jacket features blue and white wooden beads that have been hand-threaded onto the suede tassels that drape from the back, the front and sleeves. This tribute to a rock legend (with legendary style) is a super limited edition piece. Please note: The beautiful jackets are hand-beaded and each one is unique.

janis joplin fashion | Thrifty Cent I heard a lot of Janis Joplin growing up. What drew me to her was her looks. She was unapologetically plain. She never wore make-up, and always had frizzy hair. She wasn’t Twiggy skinny, she wasn’t Brigit Bardot pretty. She was a breath, no, a gust, of fresh air. "On stage I make love to twenty-five thousand people, and then I go home alone." But Janis wasn’t all confidence and sex-appeal. How Janis died is just as fascinating as how she lived. She had been laiding down tracks for a new record. "When I sing, I feel like when you're first in love. It’s just bizarre. Janis may have been plain in looks, but she spread her peacock feathers with her wardrobe, donning knitted vests, lush velvet poet blouses, chiffon, and feather boas wrapped in her hair like ribbons. “People expect Janis Joplin to be a tough bitch, and say I start talking to them like a lonely little girl–that’s not in their image of me–they don’t see it.

Wardrobe Refashion My inspiration: from Charlotte Russe, although I don't think it's available anymore My version: I choose not to cut out the fabric underneath the lace - I actually tried a version where I did but did not like the way that it looked on me (probably more suited to someone in their 20's) I don't have step-by-step photos of this project because there is really only one step - cut your lace to the shape you would like, lay out on the back of your shirt, pin in place, and sew down - an easy little way to incorporate the lace trend into your wardrobe. www.mytwobutterflies.blogspot.com fashion from old people Valentino Fall 2014 Menswear Inaugural dress of Fay Webb Gardner, 1928-29 Fuchsia Dress c. 1923-1925 Nasjonalmuseet for Kunst, Arketketur, og Design (via omgthatdress) Hi, this is Emily, and I know this isn’t a dress, but I thought I would put up a link to this project all the same for folks that might be interested… I’m part of the new line-up of art books for Benign Kingdom’s Spring 2013 collection!

Henri Matisse (1869–1954) | Thematic Essay The remarkable career of Henri Matisse, one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century, whose stylistic innovations (along with those of Pablo Picasso) fundamentally altered the course of modern art and affected the art of several generations of younger painters, spanned almost six and a half decades. His vast oeuvre encompassed painting, drawing, sculpture, graphic arts (as diverse as etchings, linocuts, lithographs, and aquatints), paper cutouts, and book illustration. His varied subjects comprised landscape, still life, portraiture, domestic and studio interiors, and particularly focused on the female figure. Initially trained as a lawyer, Matisse developed an interest in art only at age twenty-one. In its palette and technique, Matisse's early work showed the influence of an older generation of his compatriots: Édouard Manet (1832–1883) and Paul Cézanne (1839–1906). In 1929, Matisse temporarily stopped painting easel pictures.
