“Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair...”

talk about falling in love

Tuesday, May 6, 2008



I just happened to see a picture of the cover of this magazine on someone's flickr pages and oh my. oh man. oh my, oh man. I am falling in love with the images in this issue! I'd never even heard of Vogue Italia before. Just take a look at these. I'm wondering if I can still get a hold of this magazine. It seems to have been out for a few months. I'm sure it ain't cheap either, but I do wonder if our B&N might carry it. hummm...Will just have to take a trip out that way and find out for myself. Yikes. So many inspiring images! Can I help it if I am terribly old fashioned? I just adore these styles.

  1. I saw these a month or so ago on Flickr too... they are just so inspiring! I love how quaint they are, yet one could creatively utilize some of these stylistic touches in modern outfits. too cute! :)

  2. This is so creative. I'd love to wear a modified version of this general design style -- maybe just one layer instead of four of five! What do you call this kind of design? Neo-Amish?

  3. haha. I have no idea what you'd call this style! Neo-Amish sounds about right! Although I am in no way Amish, I think the styles in this magazine are fabulous. I just like the old fashioned appeal it has. The flowing skirts and pretty tops. Btw, I think I want to make a top like this one. (link below) I love the interesting collar, how it looks like there is a piece of black voile covering it. Interesting detail. Hm... So much going on in these images. They really fascinate me!

  6. Awesome! Neo-Amish! I bet you could make some pretty cool stuff on this same vein, Anna. Go for it. ;)

  7. The last image is exactly how I always imagined a 1930s English farmer's wife would look. I wonder if those were real chickens ; )

  8. I must have the cap in the third picture (that would be the one with the sleeveless plaid top). Oh, I want it so much! I can just tell I'm about to launch myself into a Little Linen Cap phase...
