Okay, this is late, yes it’s Friday. Things have been a little crazy on my end, but this post to me is worth the wait. Hope it is for you too. Holy amazing if you ask me. I’m beyond inspired.
This is the work of Sacha Maric who’s based between Copenhagen and London.Â I find it again, similar to the last photographer I posted on from Ben’s Blog, amazing and inspiring that he has been working professionally for about 4 years.Â He says this about his inspirations: â€œIâ€™m inspired by unconventional approaches to art. be that photography, film or music. Nothing is more exciting than having your eyes open to a new perspective or take on things. Also, my surroundings, the mundane things that cross my path in everyday life. Friends, family and my daughter. The dark and cold Scandinavian winter and the rejuvenation that I feel when spring arrives.â€ (Ben Trovato Blog)Â See Ben’s Blog for more of his work and stay tuned for a book coming out soon!
It’s amazing to see two of my favorite industries blending closer together – surf/skate/snow and fashion. When the economy took a turn a while back, the surf industry and fashion industry began to struggle which has forced companies and designers to put out some really great product in order to survive.
Quiksilver ten years ago consisted of cotton dresses, beach like clothing and sandals. I loved the brand because of what it represented, but I didn’t wear their clothes.Â WithinÂ last year Quiksilver and other surf/skate companies really began to take more of a fashion forward stance, along with RCVA (Erin Wasson) and Insight’s skate/fashion streetwear in order to survive the economy.Â At least something good has come out of this economy!Â The bathing suit and the colorways at the bottom are my favorite.

Time to update your wardrobe…need to add a piece for the sporty look?
Kirsten Dunst by Kevin Lynch
Fashionable, dynamic, and real, Kevin depicts Kirsten here in what seems to me as very true light. We’d see her often in the west village whether it would be bouncing around at Beatrice Inn’s smokey dance floor or eating a burger and drinking beer with friends atÂ the Corner Bistro. Down to earth yet a phenomenal actress.
I can’t really remember a time where buckles, structure and laces didn’t have an influence in fashion. Utilitarian influences always have seemed to make an impression on trends and continue to do so. The three choice for booties below are adorable – pair it with a long button down loose dress, bangles and wavy hair – perfection.

I probably will not wear these vintage 60s crazy glasses too much, but for $2 how could I resist? When shopping garage sales and vintage stores, I always keep styling/photo shoots props in mind.Â When shoots come up it’s great to have fun accessories and props on hand.
