The Streets of Rome

the streets of rome - drifter and the gypsy blog
Photographer Guy Aroch has this soft, muted-hue quality about his work that makes it easy for me to identify his photographs before confirming they’re his for sure. When the folks at Free People sent me a preview of their February 2015 campaign, I was really excited to see Guy Aroch shot the photos! The beautiful photography and clothes along with the backdrop of Rome (hello new place I want to visit!) are pretty easy on the eyes to say the least.

Everything about this outfit. Yes.

Obsessed with this dress.

The closest I’ve ever been to Rome is watching the movie Eat Pray Love, so this definitely stirs up the wanderlust in my heart.

Starfish girls

One of my very favorite photographers is Michal Pudelka. I first discovered his work on Flickr years ago and I am amazed by how far he has come since then.

Michal recently shot the Valentino S/S 2015 campaign and it’s safe to say I’m in love. There is so much visual tension and story telling in Michal’s work that traces all the way back to early Flickr photographs. It’s interesting how his work has evolved yet so much of it is the same.

These photographs have sort of a Greek mythological Siren quality about them. One of my favorite things about Michal is he always has multiple models in his shoots. I think it adds so much to the story without being overly chaotic.

I saw this photo shoot from two of my pals Ashley and Emily and a few other people and I died. And then I looked at the photos again and I died again. And then I knew I had to share this with you guys so that you can die at how unrealistically beautiful these photographs are too.

These photographs sum up my style so well (okay so maybe I wouldn’t dress quiiiiteee so flamboyantly in real life, but we’re talking aesthetics here, so don’t get too literal on me). Color, but not too much color. Dreamy, but not too much dreamy.

Sally Scott Autumn 2014

There are few things I enjoy more in life than A+ patterns and colors. Add some gorgeous photographs to the mix and you’ve got Sally Scott’s Autumn 2014 collection. Unfortunately I can’t tell you much about Sally Scott because the website is all in Japanese, but do check out the collection nonetheless! There is even a mini video to accompany each photograph.

I’ll be honest and say I don’t reallllyyy follow fashion week much. At all. I’m vaguely aware that Paris Fashion Week is going on this week, but that’s about it. I don’t follow designers, I don’t follow trends and I don’t know what color is in for the season. But one designer I DO follow is Orla Kiely.

I love these photographs Ale shot of Orla Kiely‘s Spring Summer 2015 show at London Fashion Week.

Golly!

A few of my favorite gal pals (Editor-in-chief Roxanne Fequiere, creative director Allison O’Shea and their team of creatives) are working on a magazine called Golly. Pretttyyy much the magazine had me at its awesome logo* (hey, I AM a graphic designer after all!), but it’s much more than that. It’s a quirky/whimsical/minimalistic/colorful/color-blocked magazine that celebrates a new approach to the modern magazine world. And dang the girls behind the mag really know how to style a spread! I love that they’re not over-the-top highly polished with the styling; it’s a bit rough around the edges & unfinished, but in the best way possible. It’s real.

They released Golly Magazine’s first issue this past summer, but they now have a Kickstarter campaign to raise enough money to continue on (and with only a few more days to go, they’re almost at their goal!). Check it out & contribute if the spirit moves you to do so!
