Today is the last day of the Fall and it means that it is time for another fabulous Give Away! :-) But before I will tell you all about it, I thought I would share with you one moment in time 48 years ago.
This black and white image has me literally hypnotised! It was made in 1962 and later became a part of a beautiful book "Paris 1962". I keep looking at the lonely tiny figure of this small lady in front of this gorgeous Dior window filled with beautiful shoes and can not help but feel a bit of sadness for her. What is she thinking at this very moment 48 years ago? Is she dreaming of the shoes she will never be able to wear? Does she look through this window into the beautiful life filled with luxury she will never lead? Or is she simply moved by the grandness of everything that is Dior...?
I recommend "Paris 1962" book to everybody who loves unexpected, sort of back door approach to the old world glamour in Fashion. It is filled with unforgettable, black and white images, often very haunting just like the one with a small lady in front of Dior. I bought this book last week in New York and simply can not get enough of it. It now lives on my night table. :-)
Back to the Give Away! :-) It is a very special because this time the lucky winner will receive this
gorgeous Fornasetti candle in the 'Red Lips" jar.What are they whispering to you? I have been a fan of Fornasetti Art for many years now , his faces on porcelain always make my mind wonder in hundreds of crazy creative directions. :-) All you need to do is to live a comment under this post.The lucky winner will be announced next Tuesday, November 7th.
I am wishing all of you wonderful week. It has been a rough start for me since I had to make unexpected trip to the emergency room the day after Thanksgiving. After spending several days in bed, unable to do much of anything I am looking forward to getting back to my Atelier! :-)
