hansel from basel. What a lovely name for a pretty awesome online shop that creates fantastically offbeat socks and tights. These ankle and thigh-high socks are going to be perfect when fall comes around. Going to start collecting these beauties now.

I'm ending the work week with Mia Maestro's amazing music video for her song Blue Eyed Sailor. The video is based on Cecilia Paredes' art where make up or body painting creates her anthropomorphic images. I've already watched the video half a dozen times. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

My Instagram feed has gotten so much prettier since I started following Mia. Her styling is perfect and the lighting is gorgeous. Looking at her work makes me wish for lazy Sunday afternoons. Too bad it's only Wednesday.

I feel a twinge of envy every time I see Kevin Russ' photographs. They're breathtaking, but they remind me that I'm stuck in an office 8 hours a day. I love my job, but the photographer is free to travel around the world, explore, and capture unforgettable moments with his iPhone. In an interview with VSCO Cam, Kevin said: "My daily schedule couldn't be any simpler. I look on a map for places I want to see and then drive there and take pictures." Amazing. I want that life.

Vivid patterns and bold jewelry are major staples in my wardrobe. To find what I need, I turn to En Soie, a Swiss-based fashion house that has been around since 1894. Lucky for me, I don't need to travel to Switzerland when I'm looking for a dress or scarf made from colorful textiles. I can just hop in my car and head to En Soie's pretty and airy shop in Los Angeles! Hmm. Looks like I'll be shopping this weekend.

Ever wonder what inspires or motivates an artist, designer, crafter and tastemaker? I do. That's why I got so excited when I found Our Style Stories while reading A Daily Something this weekend. Hilary Walker launched Our Style Stories last week, and it is already a great blog because it features passionate creatives and their distinct personal style.
In this style story, Hilary toured Sara and Rocky Garza's home, and the married couple talked about their business, home life and where they like to shop. Both are wedding photographers and live in a charming 1927 Tudor bungalow in Dallas, Texas. Listen in on the conversation via podcast. And you can find their portfolio here.

I'm in awe over Sofie Olejnik's work. I went through her images last night, but these photos stood out the most. They're enchanting. You can also find them in Pony Anarchy Magazine's fable and fairy tale issue.
