These past few days I’ve been running around like a hat-less hipster, trying to gets things together for a shoot this weekend. With all of the extreme weather pounding New York City these past two weeks, and being consumed with the the elections, tt’s been a bit hard to get my creative mojo popping again and finalize the small details.
So today, I’m going to distract myself with some movie time featuring the house of Dior sharing it’s magic through the eyes of talented actress Marion Cotillard. She has been the face of Dior since 2009, and with this romantic web documentary series, Cotillard shows us behind-the-scenes of the ateliers and locations that makes up the legendary Christian Dior history.

About a month ago, I decided to challenge myself by create my own version of The Fashion Book, but mine would focus on my favorite things for the coming seasons of spring/summer 2011. At first it seemed easy enough, since there were several items that started with the letters C, D, F and S in my memory bank. The easy street changed pretty fast when letters G, O,Y and Z stalled me for days.

Even though this project took a couple of weeks to find something for each letter in the alphabet, including images, writing tidbits and creating templates, I’m happy that I did it all by my lonesome. Now, let’s see if I can do this again for Fall!
