So the skin colour is a little alarming, but it's a nice idea from a vintage breeches-type inspiration, and exposed fastenings are never wrong.

I'm sure you all read The Selvedge Yard and bathe in the vintage images, but these by Michael Cooper are keepers. Google tells me that he's the photographer on whom Blowup was based. The photographs are of Gram Parsons, Keith Richards and Anita Pallenberg at Joshua Tree National Monument in 1969. It also tells me that Gram & Keith became enamored with Joshua Tree. The two would disappear in the desert for days, searching for UFOs while under the influence of psilocybin or LSD. Very lifestyle. As are the Southwestern blankets. Definitely the mood for now.

Although I can't really imagine wearing white jeans, all I can think about is different shades of cream & white.

Sometimes, it just comes together. There's generally a sinking feeling when I open a box of new developments based on washes that I've spent time imagining, describing and coaxing into existence, and what's in that box is not what's in my head. But I am in LOVE with this one.

I haven't been spreading any of my love towards indigo slims for a while, and for that I apologise. I'm not a professional blogger and honestly just use this as a good place to store pictures and ideas. I haven't been able to figure out how to do a design job and continue to share information, but I've decided to start posting again anyway and see how I go.

I seem to have picked up some followers, and also as many visitors yesterday as when I was posting regularly - clearly you're not visiting for my sparkling way with words. So I enjoy sharing the images and I'll stick them up here when they come my way.
