muse · in the trimming

inspiration can be found anywhere.

by anyone.

in anything.

like old videotape ribbon.

this dress is made out of ribbon from old movies.

the artist is Rebecca Maxim and she says her work is "less about fashion and more about transforming the by-product of consumption into glamorous objects".

inspiration in by-products? check!

May 2013 bring you unlimited inspiration in the most unexpected places.

see this piece in person at the Bellevue Art Museum as part of the High Fiber Diet exhibit through february!

muse · forever 21 fun

i love walking around downtown.
i never know what·who i might see.

so this was a fun surprise.

turn the corner and Forever 21 has models · live and totally regular peeps like us · posing in their window.

so i snapped a couple shots.

excuse the glare. you just never know when something·someone might inspire!

muse · update on a past muse

they just got engaged!
and had an engagement shin dig at this clever bar in seattle.

i love parties. and i love LOVE.

so a party to celebrate love?

in addition to the old-timey drinks highlighted on their walls, they offered a 'spicy serrano peach cocktail' which had my name written all over it. 

side note: all i want for my next birthday is these balloons.

congrats you two!

seeking inspiration · pretty pretty ice princesses

it's december, my friends.
truly, the most wonderful time of the year!

each holiday season, i do my best to catch SNOWFLAKE LANE at least a few nights while i count down to christmas day. and this weekend was to be my first visit.

was to be.

ladies and gents it was pouring. buckets and boatloads of rain were falling...and after 3 minutes outside, i was soaked through and through. and i decided to pick another night to enjoy the magic.


on the run to my car, i came across these three ladies. and the little girl inside me jumped up and down and squealed and giggled. (while the adult in me pulled out my phone and snapped a couple shots before continuing to the car.)

dear high school girls,
you have my dream job. ice princesses! 
enjoy every single moment.
xox, jpotmont
