ladies of the canyon

I'm utterly obsessed with Jeana Sohn's Closet Visit Project. The ladies she photographs embody the kind of cool and style that I wish I could posess. They make me want to wear mexican turquoise and marni necklaces, swathe myself in Moroccan textiles and recline on a 70s shag rug in my airy sun-drenched Californian bungalow! They embody the kind of refined bohemian glamour that seems so quintessentially LA. Oh, I crave sun and succulents and tumbling riotously from ceramic pots, diaphonous scarves, orange lips and laid-back LA glamour.

isn't she lovely?

When I started watching Happy Thank You More Please today I knew I knew actress Zoe Kazan's face, but I just couldn't place where I'd seen her before. Turns out she's featured in a number of recent indie flicks, and perhaps most memorably in the noir-comedy televsion series Bored to Death as Jason Schwartzman's flirtatious pupil. I think she has refreshingly relaxed and quirky style as well as being pretty darn adorable. Aside from being lovely, she's also a Yale graduate and Elia Kazan's granddaughter. Looks like she's one to watch!

sleepy fawn

I'm a longtime fan of the talented and lovely Ashley Moe. Her simple line drawings, populated by little rabbits, chubby chickadees, and graceful fawns are utterly charming. Her blog is similarly dreamy, featuring photos of her simple, feminine style and sweetly decorated apartment. Ashley's recently reopened etsy store is offering a selection of her drawings, photographs and artist books, and is well worth a look.

charlotte gainsbourg

Charlotte seems to be popping up in my life frequently lately. I have been listening to her collaboration with Beck from a while back, Irm, and I'm looking forward to seeing her new film The Tree when it's released on September 30. But the thing that enchants me most about Charlotte is hard to put into words. I think it must be that "French" thing that unimaginative magazines like to print a feature on every three months, attempting to tell us how to apply concealer and tie a scarf like a French girl. But the art of being charming commes les Francaises can't be conveyed in a thousand words. Charlotte's quietly unconventional beauty and her je ne sais quois cannot be taught or even analysed- they must simply be appreciated.

sleek, chic- 1970s style

I'm convinced, high-waisted wide-legged 70's jeans are simply the epitome of chic. I just don't get tired of looking at them, and it's been a good three years since I've been on the bandwagon! Sleek, chic 1970's looks are wonderful in general. I think I would have been very sartorially fulfilled had I been alive in that decade! I have a black crepe floor -sweeping 1970's evening dress with a plunging neckline down to here and dozens of tiny crepe-covered buttons, that I just can't wait to wear. I think it could even work as a sundress. I love 70's style.
