Let's dream together: Hannah Nagle photography

She is only 17 and uses as her only model her sister, who doesn't look any older than 14. But her pictures look anything but childish.

This one is definitely my favorite

Meet two lonely hearts

Lonely Hearts is a New Zealand-based fashion brand created in 2003 by Helene Morris and Steve Ferguson. Basically, they combined his tougher, punk and street inspired concepts with her feminine, lingerie inspired aestetics to create this line. They have a few collections out, and I have to admit my favorite part are definitely the names: Little Bandits, What is your damage?, Brains for Dinner. Recently, taking inspiration from Helene's obsession with vintage lingerie they added a lingerie collection called Lonely. They created a few capsule collections, here are a few of my favorite pieces:

And my favorite collection: Little Bandits

Looking through some pictures I had saved on my computer from all over the internet, I noticed this common thread of subjects covering their faces in a lot of pictures: either with hair, holding an object or just with their hands. So I started wandering around the internet and I found this kind of images to be very frequent.
Don't you want to show your face?

Cuff me up: Alkemie Jewelry

This brand is a nice discovery I made a few days ago: what got me hooked are the intresting designs, mostly representational and nature inspired (animals, plants and sealife are the main subjects). But after  falling in love with most of the pieces I found out something that made the brand even better: all designs are made of 100% reclaimed metal and manufactured by hand in downtown Los Angeles. Husband and wife Dara Gerson and Ashley Lowengrub cofounded this company with very clear goal of making completely eco-friendly: from the use of the materials, the promotion of fair trade, local living wage and eco-sustainable business practices to combat the existing harmful effects and conditions of the metal and gemstone industry. On top of all that, they also make great jewelry!

The whole collection is great, but the cuffs and bangles are defenitely my favorite. Here are some:
