Old and New

I know that I have a giant collection of old magazines, as I'm sure a lot of people do, that I can never get rid of. I find myself periodically going through them and tearing out my favorite editorials/ads so here are some of my favorite older magazine pages.

Apparently this one is from Elle, since it says so in the top left corner. Betsey Johnson is such a cool, unique designer and I religiously buy her perfume. I love how they combined all of her interesting, beautiful products into one photo here.

From the feel of this page, I believe it was from an old H&M catalogue. I just love the peacock feathers and I feel that it's such a nice inspiration board.

These photos make me miss summer and want to go on a road trip. I just have always found them so lovely. By the way, they are from Seventeen magazine from July 2004 (notice the tag in the bottom right corner)! Wow!

Remember when MIA modeled fro Marc Jacobs? I've never been a really big fan of Marc Jacobs but I am in love with MIA - her look, her music, her attitude - so it made me extra giddy each time I'd flip open a magazine to see her in it.

This last old one is for Meg because she is obsessed with anything American flag, at least clothing wise. I thought it was so pretty how they made that vest!

Now here are some new photos, from the most recent Teen Vogue and Nylon. I noticed that both of them featured Georgia May Jagger, and I think she looks so beautiful in both shoots. I love her gap in the front of her teeth, little quirks like that are my favorite.

And lastly (because this post wasn't quite long enough) here is a photo of me dancing to Waka Waka by Shakira, and being happy about how long my hair has gotten!

What does anyone else do with their old ripped out magazine pages? I need some interesting way to store them!

  7. lovely photos!! Esp lusting the photos of Georgia May! Your hair looks amazing by the way! :)

  8. I don't really rip out whole pages, just collage type stuff. You should get some kind of binder/art notebook to keep them all in and decorate it as your "inspiration book". That would be a fun project!

    You've got good taste. thanks for sharing your collection, really inspiring!

  9. Great inspiration! Ms. Jagger is just toooo gorgeous, and I love the MIA photos as well. Lovely blog!

    Your hair is sooooo beautiful love the colour.
