my latest blogsession (blog obsession) is amateur couture.
a veritable feast for the eyes, this blog is a combination of two of my
most favorite things: fashion + art.
with a talented eye for line, color, and texture, amateur blogette,
m. fay expertly matches paintings with pumps, graphics prints with graffiti,
jewelry with jewel tones, in such a way that you will swear one work
inspired the other, when in reality they are unrelated!
i had a chance to speak with m. fay herself, and this is what she had to say:
"amateur couture has evolved to a blog that celebrates the connection between
art and fashion, often the in the most literal of senses.. i am inspired by COLOR..
of the combinations of patterns. i love art by chagall and picasso. i am inspired
by fashionistas with a true sense of style: bardot, edie, audrey, karen o.
inspiration is everywhere, you hust have to open your mind and your eyes to it."
when i asked about how she goes about pairing the art and fashion together,
m. fay adorably answered, "most of the time my matches are a treasure hunt. i save
images upon images of dresses and art that i find inspiring. when i go through
my library of favorites, i try to pair them up... with a little luck, it works!"
love, love, love!!
