I was inspired by the blogger style tease, when I stopped by her blog the other day and she had a project where she painted her flat mate and photographed her. It reminded me of a book I have had for years, that I absolutely find the most beautiful collaboration between two artists. I love collaborations, hence our blog. I feel people who truly inspire you to be a more creative version of yourself are sometimes rare to find. And when you find that person and it works, beauty happens. Veruschka broke onto the scene in the 60′s as a top model and actress of the film Blow Up. She has been photographed by all the greats, like Richard Avedon, as well as graced the covers of all the best magazines. In the 70′s she meet Holger Truizsch a prominent painter and photographer, together they transformed her beyond recognition. The book is unbelievable and full of so many photos we had a hard time editing down to some of our favorites.
I just wanted to end by saying that so far, since Camilla and I have been blogging we have found some truly talented people who have inspired us in various ways. This weekend we are planning to shoot of some vintage pieces we found in the last month, and because it’s also Thanksgiving break maybe we will end up getting to shoot more than one. Hope you all have a wonderful, inspired weekend. XO Valerie and Camilla

This is Kind of a renewal design I did the other day by taking a large mens v neck sweater and changing it up to make it more feminine. Both Camilla and I have been into taking Old boring clothing and making something new of it, like recycled clothing!
Basically I just took the sweater and cut the sleeves shorter then chopped off the bottom band and slit up the side seams to about 1/2 inch below the armhole. I had some silk charmeuse laying around so I sewed up two very, very long sashes. Then I attached them to where I had slit the sides of the sweater and sewed it together. What I wanted was to take these long sashes and wrap them around and around to cinch in the waist,then tie a big bow. Camilla threw it on over a little black slip and there you have it,cozy and feminine.It also looks cute with jeans and boots. XO Valerie
Hi! Well some of you who follow Style Bubble know Susie set up a challenge to see “who could cram as many colors into one outfit using only solid color block pieces”. She wanted to see if you could get up to ten pieces into one outfit. We Love Susie and thought it would be a fun evening activity. So off we went to comb through our closets and try to come up with something that Susie would approve of.
We took a Purple silk Dress as the base added a silver bustier on top then belted it with a patent taupe belt. After we added the Gold Jacket and a fuchsia fake fur collar, teal tights, brown boots, forest green handbag, navy silk headband, pink bracelet and yellow sunglasses. What do you think? Crazy, yeah but fun!

I’m far more comfortable behind the lens instead of in front of it but I just got these cute Jeffery Campbell booties in the mail from ShopBop
and We thought we should post them. They have been sold out of LF boutiques
in my size for a while so when Shopbop
got a reorder of them I was so excited. LF says they are getting a reorder for Christmas so be on the look out if you want them. Actually LF has them with the tacks all over the wedge which is pretty awesome but like I said I couldn’t wait so here they are:)
is an amazing designer. I literally was mesmerized by her designs and the videos she has on her site. Please go check her out she also has a blog that is very lovely, but be ready to be sucked in to her short movie Between Heaven and Earth.
