I have been obsessing over vintage beauty videos lately, specifically the one I will post below. Im so attracted to them simply for aesthetics, although they do offer insight to the lifestyle and ideals being promoted to women at the time. Not that I agree with all of the ideas being promoted in the video, I still find it all extremely interesting and almost soothing to listen to. The manner in which people presented themselves, the way they looked, walked, spoke seems like that of a dream. And the way the film saturates and dulls certain colours, giving a soft filter over everything. I find it to be magical :)
I am currently at home back in Canada for the summer. I am hoping to keep myself busy, since I don't have the same kind of access to culture and entertainment as I did when I was in London. Coming back home is almost like entering a dream, the the first few weeks that I was here was surreal. I forgot how quiet my surroundings could be, and how spread apart I am from people and activity while living in the suburbs.
In attempt to keep myself busy as well as help pay off some student debt I am in the midst of setting up an online shop. I have a lot of clothing I want to sell, as well as some of my art (drawings, prints, paintings etc.). It will be up soon, and I will post a link up on my blog when it is ready, but I was just wondering what kind of things you guys might want to see in my shop? Let me know in the comments below!
Until next time,
