I think I am in love. The mockumentary, Paper Heart stars the adorable Charlyne Yi and follows her on her journey to figure out the definition of true love. She interviews people all over the US to uncover their stories and even ends up finding what could possibly be a love of her own (hello Micheal Cera). I watched it twice in one day and might even go for three... depends and how adventurous I'm feeling.

and this is why i am determined to master the dying art of film photography...

After thoroughly searching all the blogs I follow I still cannot seem to figure out where these are from. I remember visiting the photographer's Flickr page and her other work is just as enchanting as these photos. I will keep looking, but if anyone has any idea who took these please let me know!

His subjects live in a land where Chanel blush is permanently brushed on their flawless cheeks and vibrant pastels act as the fabric to their overly fantastical gowns. You can check all the maps you can find, but that land is hidden deep within the pages of Danny Roberts' sketchbook. This talented California based fashion illustrator is a graduate of Academy of Art University and has successfully developed a unique style that distinctly separates him from other prominent artists of today. His pieces take you to a place where love is magical, fashion is effortless and everyone looks like they have just escaped from a dollhouse. In the past Roberts has worked with Forever 21, Lancome and has also created the bright eyed girl who is the notorious icon for BlogLovin'. However one of Robert's biggest achievements has occurred recently- within the last two weeks to be exact. Danny's brightly colored yet intimate portrait of Alexander McQueen was used as the cover for what is sure to be a legendary issue of London's Sunday Times Magazine. While this may be a highlight of his career, don't expect it to be the height of it. Roberts, age 24, is merely in his early years and only he knows what whimsical worlds are to come.

Decided to snap some shots yesterday while some friends and I were hanging out Yerba Buena Gardens.

Forever 21 blazer, nordstroms BP black tank, H&M gold pleated skirt, H&M tights, Steve Madden shoes

So this is me. I decided that maybe it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to do some style shots featuring none other than yours truly. Just got some new shoes from Steve Madden and I'm so excited about them! I have been looking for shoes this style forever (well okay more like a couple months). I'm not really supposed to be out on my fire escape, actually I just heard it might be illegal so nobody tell on me please.

His photos tell tales of a brilliant red headed queen, desolate landscapes, glowing houses, and abandoned sailboats. Similar to Tim Walker's notoriously whimsical photos, Mike Bailey Gates is a 17-year-old fashion photographer living in Rhode Island. Already getting an incredible amount of press (including a mention on Urban Outfitter's blog), Gates is inevitably destined to create a fairy tale story that is entirely his own. Using vast amounts of light and New England's enchanting scenery, his photographs capture not only the delicate innocence of youth but also the dark, haunting side of adolescence that is all to often lost in Friday night football games and school dances. Click here to take a look at all of his photos.

Vidid shots of Scotland's lush forest, dilapidated castles and the always stoic Tilda Swinton are the ingredients to Pringle of Scotland's short film, directed by Ryan McGinley. Shot 15 minutes away from Swinton's home in east Inverness, the video is an oddly intense, beautifully scenic film that creatively shows off a few new looks from the company's spring/summer collection.

They have also released another film which premiered at Milan Fashion Week to celebrate its return to Italy. Animated by David Shrigley, this video is much less dramatic and rather an outrageously humorous, behind the scenes look at what goes into the making of a Pringle of Scotland sweater.

Since returning to my cozy shoe box sized dorm room I have had to leave cable television behind (bye bye Lost). So its safe to say I have been watching my fair share of movies lately and have seen some truly breathtaking ones recently. So while I feel like a terrible fashion follower, doing a post on movies when its fashion week, I figured, what the hell. Here's a little bit about A Single Man and Grey Gardens....
A Single Man:
Tom Ford has my infinite approval as a director. His novel style of filming is filled with ultra-dramatic slow moving shots that prevent you from doing anything besides staring intensely at the screen, wide eyed in pure amusement. The cinematography has inevitably been the focus since the movie's release, but beyond the strong colors and revolutionary shots, there is a deeply, touching, dark story of a man coping with the death of his soul mate. The intimate scenes and conversations are overwhelmingly powerful. There have been a decent amount of good movies this past year, but A Single Man is not a merely movie, it is a true film.

Grey Gardens:
Based on the 1975 documentary, HBO's latest success is a somewhat disturbing story of Little and Big Edie Bouvier Beale, mother and daughter (also aunt and cousin to Jackie Kennedy) and their fall from glamorous, high society life, to living in squalor in a home considered to be unsuitable even for animals. Regardless of their dire economic situation, Big and Little Edie continue on as though they are blissfully unaware of it all. They spend hours picking out the perfect outfit, make sure their lipstick is flawlessly applied before answering the door and when Mrs. Kennedy decides to drop by, they invite her to relax in their garden made of dirt and dried brush. Regardless of the rural living conditions, the cinematography and costumes are quite phenomenal.
