Nope, I don’t mean style in the North East (but if that’s what you’re looking for, just step out of your dreary office and walk around a bit – you’ll find it!). I realized recently that I have a few offshoots from the blog, but haven’t really given any of my readers direct routes to get to them. So for your ease and convenience, you can find me on the following channels:
Twitter – daily ramblings (within 140 characters)
Tumblr – my inspiration board named “The Ditty Bag”
Instagram - a medley of photos of my day to day life and travels
Facebook – the blog’s fan page, you can like it if you want
Pinterest – more inspiration boards broken out into specific categories
Cargo Collective – my illustration portfolio
Jean Seberg is undoubtedly a style icon. Photos of her will always hold a prominent place in style inspiration boards. As Cecile in Bounjour Tristesse, Seberg is a young girl who has the luxury of living in the French Riviera with her wealthy playboy father. She sports a very chic short hair cut, tiny shorts, colorful linens, and loose chambray shirts (nonchalantly knotted at the waist). Her wardrobe is a lovely reflection of the stunning landscape that surrounds her with rich blues, tangerines, lush greens, and vibrant reds. Cecile leads a very undisciplined life with her father until an old flame of his returns (played by the always sophisticated Deborah Kerr). Cecile panics that she will lose the free and easy going lifestyle she and her father had made for themselves. The film is a beautiful cinematic journey of that gorgeous part of the world, but ends quite sadly – the rakish father and his spiteful daughter drive the moral girlfriend to suicide.
