Mood Board // Botanical

It's almost 70 degrees here today and I'm totally ready to wave goodbye to this icy, frigid winter and say hello to some bright sunny flowers! Nothing says spring collection like some lady-like flowers, and there is an abundance of botanical adornment to chose from out there, particularly on shoes. These Nicholas Kirkwood Alice in Wonderland heels are amazing. Also, has anyone noticed the "flowers as head" editorial trend? Very kitschy, and I love kitsch. And botanicals have always been a fitting element in the beauty realm, but as far as I'm concerned, Anna Sui is the queen rose. She's managed to make flowers looks cool, sexy, and even a bit dangerous with her ubiquitous cosmetic packaging.

Now I am super ready for the real thing... c'mon Spring!

Exquisite Corpse: On Holiday Mix

As I mentioned in a previous post, my friend Liz and I are working together on creative projects under the nom de guerre Salt & Ash, and one of our non-client undertakings is an exquisite corpse project where we create mix albums along with coinciding artwork. The ball is once again in my court, and Liz passed me the design element "source of light". Having just got back from a long weekend in Jamaica, I've got the travel bug so decided to dedicate my mix to "going on holiday" (say it in a British accent)!

Feel free to download here!

Liz: Your element for the next album is... a "burn".
