The Butterfly Circus

I recently came across a beautiful short film about redemption, hope, and ultimatley transformation. "The Butterfly Circus" revolves around the metaphor of how a butterfly must strenuosly break free of it's cacoon in order to transform into the beautiful creature that it was created to be. Similarly, the inevitable struggles of life are neccesary in order for each of us to undergo transformation, build character, and become the person that we are each created to be. Featuring Eduardo Verástegui (Bella), Doug Jones (Pan’s Labyrinth, Fantastic Four), and Motivational Speaker and Author of Life Without Limits, Nick Vujicic, "The Butterfly Circus" is about Rebirth, Second Chances, New Life, and the "Beauty that can come from Ashes."

"You do have an Advantage, the Greater the Struggle, the More Glorious the Triumph!" -The Butterfly Circus

French Navy

I absolutley love all things nautically inspired. I remember when I got my first French Vogue magazine the pages of Military/Sailor inspired looks touched me in the deep core of my nautical-hungry soul. I don't know what it is about the blues, reds, whites, canvas materials, oxford shoes, and loafers that make me feel so good and close to the sea which I love. Here's a photo of my favorite sailor hat which I decided to follow with some photos of inspiration. I love the vintage, sailor feel each one emits.

Ay, Ay Captain!


Robert Redford

Audrey Hepburn

Brigitte Bardot

Coco Channel

I find it interesting that the famous "french stripes" were originally worn by sailors who were considered of "low rank." Who knew the trend would grace the future pages of Vogue magazines everywhere...

Another source of inspiration stems from one of my all time favorite songs from my all time favorite bands, I present to you for your listening pleasure, "French Navy" by Camera Obscura.

Forest, Flowers, and Fabrics

Although I couldn't manage to take any photos of my own outfits, I do recall coming across a video a while back that compliments my previous post. The outfits are a compilation of romantic dresses, feminine fits, as well as a bit of rusticity. In addition to the aesthetic enjoyment of the scenery, fabrics, and models comes along "Blow the Cover," by Corinne Callen which I think you will find audibly pleasing as well. Enjoy!
