BETH HOECKEL















These collages are.... everything. Artist Beth Hoeckel uses all found paper, so nothing is done digitally. So hard to believe! Look at the colors and shapes and ughhhhh. Just wow. I think the vintage feel of most of the paper she uses really adds to the beauty of each piece. The colors are fabulous in each one. So dreamy...... check her out on her website.

Minimalist Mexican Architecture

A lot of people think it's weird that I am most attached to my Mexican heritage, being only one quarter Mexican and also the palest person you've ever met. Just one aspect of Mexican culture that fascinates me is the architecture, specifically this strange minimalist style that I happened upon:













Such an incredible minimalist feel, yet still extremely colorful. Pictures were actually pretty hard to find online, so I don't know the names of all of the architects above.

wowowowowowowowowowowowowow. No words!!! High-resolution printed fabrics are definitely becoming a trend lately (I think we owe it all to Mary Katrantzou), but Dries Van Noten hit this one right on the head. The black and white prints serve as a perfect "neutral" among the rest of the brighter prints. Look at the yellows and blues! And that fern/palm tree dress! And the cuts! Oh, the cuts are so perfect. What I find the most interesting is that the individual prints seem to represent both exotic and urban places, but together it all blends so nicely. Not such a fan of the heavier lace up heels, but the thin strappy ones are perf.
