A Rainbow of Wallets

Il Bussetto wallets

 

Happy Thursday! The sun has made a quick appearance today, but these long, gray, gloomy days have us yearning for color! A small way to add some chroma to your life is through your personal accessories. Il Bussetto has some cheery hues for your card carrying and it can make all the difference. Have you ever tried looking for a black wallet in a dark handbag? A pop of color can bring a smile to your face and make it less frustrating! But, hey, if you like black we have those options too.

Shoe Mood: Bordeaux, Green & Pewter

With the winter months around the corner, and our wardrobes looking very neutral, (not that there is anything wrong with that of course!) we were¬†craving some deep rich colors in our closet. When putting together the fall buy,¬†we didn’t want to limit ourselves to the varietal shades of black and grey.

Shoe Mood: Bordeaux re-souL flats

So with this in mind, we added some fall colors to our very own re-souL collection. Shades of burgundy, green, blue and a little bit of shine with neutrals of pewter and bronze.

Shoe Mood: Pewter re-souL loafers

The great thing about all of these hues and metallics is they go very well with all of those neutrals in your wardrobe! A punch of color to your basic black and grey.

Shoe Mood: Green re-souL oxfords

 

So what do you think? Think you could break away from your basic black shoe for a new color or metallic instead?

Mondays, Maggie Muses: Artist Paolo Ventura

A few weeks ago I had posted about a visit to the shop Nonostante Marras in Milan, Italy. Along with the many things they sell in their boutique, they regularly feature local artists. Back in February I was introduced to artist/photographer Paolo Ventura. Boy, was I smitten.

This Italian born photographer creates scenes that are rich, dreamy and sometimes surreal. He does this by creating miniature sets into which he then places realistic dolls and props ~ then he photographs them. The result is part fantasy, part realism. They are captivating images that take you right into his nostalgic world.

His painstaking attention to detail is what makes them so charming. Ventura creates every detail from start to finish. He chooses the costumes (sometimes designing them himself), makes or sources the props and paints the dioramas. He also becomes part of the picture, putting himself in costumes and posing in front of the camera.
