S u m m e r t i m e I n s p i r a t i o n s
I LOVE this adorable editorial from French Vogue from a while back called "Jasper and Zippora Seven + King and Justine Crawford are brothers and sisters"
I know that this is an autumn/winter editorial on a windy beach with subdued colours, but for some reason I get summer inspiration from this! It's probably the beach house and the 'ring around the rosy' times on the beach. It's such a beautiful 1940's style editorial, it really tells a story. I like Zippora and her brother Jasper too I suppose, there's something about the Sevens. I'm always on/off with my liking of them. This particular editorial touches a soft spot with me, it reminds me so much of my friends Nick and Natasha. Were all friends and have been for quite some time now, they're so creative and inspirational- I love them both. Nickolaus is a splitting image of King Crawford with the dark, curly hair and suspenders, Natasha is extremely Zippora Seven in this editorial with the adorable whispy blonde bob, and the beautiful smile... and I see a lot of my long haired, brunette self in Justine Crawford. Our relationship is kind of like this I suppose, I have a close brotherly relationship with Nick, and I can see my dear friend Tash and I having those feet in the air-brown oxford/grey sock -giggling- on-stairs times. I would love to have beach times like this with them this summer! You can find Natasha's blog in my blog list- it's called vanitylife. READ IT.
