A Charming Vintage Adventure

 Lets see... where were we?

For the longest time, I've been trying to figure out how to actualize and share all the inspirations and creative phases I experience in my head.  I think it got to the point of desperation, actually.  After a while, ideas have to be put to paper and then to the hands to create.  If not, then any type of expression is just a lie I guess.

It had gotten to the point where I wasn't showing what I was experiencing.  I wasn't connected.  I think I finally got tired of thinking all the time and I really just wanted to start doing.  Expressing!  Whimsies, fleeting fancies - they're just too fun not to share.  And what better medium than here?  It just comes down to this:

Think it
Write it
Show it
Move on.

So continuing on still in a Tiny Closet style, my mind has been completely taken with the illustrations of "Where The Wild Things Are".  And also wrapped up somewhere in the 1930s with the adventure and exquisite aesthetic of vintage travel.  Travel to new and exotic places.  I decided to create that feeling and imagine those illustrations into an intimate interior setting.  A Tiny lil peek into what that world might look like from the bedroom.

Oh and also, what one should wear for the occasion of leisure vintage travel.

Oh and one more thing.  I cut my hair.  Again :)

 I've been only seeing chartreuse lately.  In everything from plants to illustrations to fabric.  High waists, worn leather belts and the crisp white of a man's shirt - all things I have been obsessed with over the past month.

I took an XXL men's button up and snipped and shaped it into a cute cap-sleeved waterfall shirt.  I had made a pair of soft jersey chartreuse gauchos earlier this Summer but never imagined them outfitted this way.  Simple and to the point for the charming far and away look I was imagining.

Theo and I have been working together for years now.  What an interesting team we make.  Every time we're on a job, it always surprises me when people remark on how well we work together.  I've never really thought of it that way.  We're both stubborn control freaks but greatly admire each other's ideas anyway.  And the fact that we're in love has kept one from killing the other on many collaborative occasions.  When it comes down to it, we're each other's biggest fans.  This picture is a rare type of photo we take but it's a good reminder.

Anyway...
Good to be back :)
pssst, thank you for visiting!  Come back next Monday for more Tiny Closet imaginings!
