Blood Wounded Flowers S/S 10

(photos by Bella)
(Inspirational Board)

One of many reasons I love Blue Onion Marketplace luxury boutique is the tremendous versatility each piece invokes when you least expect it. Sifting through the dynamics of experimentation and innovative design, alongside the webbing art of styling/accessorizing, it's comes down to the blueprint details. So, it's no surprise that when owner, Michele Syre, contacted me, I was thrilled with the opportunity to collaborate and reconstruct the Dulken & Derrick Flower Pins she'd sent over. The only obvious answer was yes, but with vertiginous elation, I assure you.
After studying each piece and drawing from personal inspiration, Alex and I spent the afternoon immersed in our little craft vessel. Entranced. Moody. Entertained.
Ultimately, the decision to integrate some of the ominously-evocative elements of designer Carol Christian Poell as well as Dior Homme S/S 02 Boys Don't Cry/RED Collection solved all those contemplative expressions. Delving into the etherealization of Dulken & Derrick, haunting rock, wounded love, classic Chanel, pretty vs. painstakingly dirty, and a menswear slim-fit silhouette, we counterbalanced our own interpretations against such a list of exquisite designers.
We couldn't be happier with the end results. Thank you Michele... you're amazing!!!

I love the way you formatted everything...normal photos followed by the groups of polaroids. There's a wonderful dark romanticism to all of it. Your shoe shots look great. Of course the feather flower... And you finished it off with a smile! :D The inspiration board is great, too! Wonderful work, love!!!!!!!!!

Vitamins for Happy Tresses

Nobody wants to think about thinning hair, and when extra strands start blanketing your bathroom floor it can be very scary. As women, we tend to put our locks through the ringer by blow-drying, straightening, coloring, and raking a brush through wet tresses. Big no no. But everyday stress and hormonal imbalances play a part too. Hair loss afflicts men and women and to some degree, it's perfectly normal.But it can be a sign of a more serious problem so it's important to take those vital steps in improving your hair health and that means taking your daily vitamins.
Formulated with OptiMSM® and 37 essential vitamins, minerals, and herbs for hair strengthening nutritional support, Vibrance Pure Hair Vitamins for Growth nourishes your hair while creating more volume and shine. I've been taking Vibrance Pure Hair Vitamins for Growthfor a little over two weeks and while I haven't seen a significant change in growth, I have noticed a better balance of oils when I'm on that…
