The Clanking Of Crystal, Explosions Off In The Distance


Some of my favorite photographs lately, quite a few of these have been stranded in inspiration folders for some time and it seemed right to drag them out and dust them off. Though I didn't realize it while I was compiling them, they all seem to have a sort of pensive quality to them, somewhat sad and intimate.








Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia, Alexa Chung via Photobucket, Marc Mez, unknown, Lindsay Lohan shot by Hedi Slimane, Sandra Freij.

Currently indulging in a Death Cab marathon (post title from "The New Year" off Transatlanticism) and trying to decide what my favorite album is. I feel like I should start another blog so I can keep my fashion raving and my music raving separate, but I already have too many things to remember passwords for.

P.S. Enter the Fragonard giveaway! You still have six days!

i love the photo with the crazy cool eye makeup. and surprisingly, i really like the lindsay lohan picture. i don't particularly like her, but this photo gives her some normality and innocence.

A lot of these are really striking; nice collection.
P.S. I had a pixie before (right now I'm growing my hair out), maybe I'll dig up an old pic and attempt to scan it.
