Ah, June. And I’m still wearing long-sleeved cardigans. And.I.am.LOVING.it. This week involved some late-in-the-spring-cleaning, including clearing out email inboxes and bookmarked sites. Here are some of those that I enjoyed catching up on:
♥ It’s Diamond Jubilee time in the UK, and that includes things like taking a look at the Queen’s fashion influence. She was seriously fashionable back in the day, and still looks perfectly delightful. She OWNS her look and wears those pastel hats, gloves, and handbags with confidence. Bless. (Oh, and if you’re not sure what the Diamond Jubilee is all about, then read all about it here.)
♥ And how cool of the Royal Mail to release a series of stamps celebrating modern British fashion. Seriously, these stamps are AWESOME. And educational. (My fave is the Jean Muir.) Props to you, UK. Go Olympics!
♥ On a completely different note, this Flavorwire gallery of abandoned train stations from all over the world is heartachingly beautiful. And sad. And makes me want to (re)watch The Time Machine or one of those documentaries about how long it takes for nature to reclaim cities.
♥ And now it’s time for a palate cleanser before I spiral down that hole. Feast your senses with this ethereal, dreamy, wondrous video.
