two sites to add to that ever growing catalogue of must-check blogs...
VIVA VENA CAVA
TWO REASONS TO HEART VIVA VENA CAVA: 1. The Brooklyn based designers share what is currently making their hearts flutter as opposed to using the page as a medium to shove Vena Cava brand down our throats (though in any case, I think I'd open my mouth quite happily). 2. The content is pleasingly meaty; a review for a cult film here, a behind the scenes look at business trips/birthday parties, and lots of mouthwatering textiles.
YOU'LL BE INSPIRED TO: buy alternative lifestyle interiors books from the 1970s and do whatever you can do to secure a job working in as lovely an environment with people as interesting and cool as the Vena Cava girls.
ANYTHING ELSE? Designers Sophie and Lisa have included their own playlists in the sidebar so you too can listen to the very music that plays in their office as the latest VC pieces come into fruition.
TWO REASONS TO HEART STYLEULIKE: 1. Just as our thirst for nosey The Selby-esque sites increases, luckily so do the amount of wardrobe raiding, apartment trespassing hoodlum bloggers. Elisa and Lily's StyleLikeU is a perfect example. 2 the two have the ever so tiresome job of hanging out in closets with various New Yorkers going through the owner's favourite pieces. Not only do they give us photos to gawp over- the whole thing is filmed too!
YOU'LL BE INSPIRED TO: reorganise your wardrobe, go vintage shopping or generally replicate the entire look of your favourite style case studies.
ANYTHING ELSE? I really like Alexa Winner and Sophie Flinder, so you might want to start looking at the style of those guys.
