You will understand more about Pavesi’s work with a quote from the photographer’s interview featured in Self Service magazine Spring/Summer 2012 issue: “I don’t like riches that aren’t accompanied by thought, and I don’t like bourgeoisie if it becomes narrow-minded and uncultured. I like mystery; I don’t like affection. All those things that come from it don’t interest me. People feel safe in affection. And I’m always looking for, and intrigued by, content. I love the unconventional and I’m always looking for it.”

The imaginarium of Agnes Boulloche

Agnes Boulloche lives in a fantasy world (partially located in Ile de Re) where phantasmagorical creatures tell tales about humanity. Her colorful oil paintings full of elaborate allegorical details recall the Old Masters, while her art comes out as a unique mix of Modern Renaissance, contemporary Surrealism and Symbolism.

My boyfriend's blazer

Ok, maybe my latest post was not so chic, they were, let's say, my obsessions of that time (including ugly red dog which I bought from the aeroport - freaky but I don't know why, extremely cute). This is why I've come back with fresh ideas, chic ideas you'll really love. I present you today a trendy peace of clothing, I never live home without.

Blazer boy fit

It's a manly blazer that looks extremely chic on us, girls, and goes fantastic with a pear of blue jeans, like Katie Holmes likes to wear and a pear of stilettos. It's an every day outfit I simply adore!
