Backstage at Rodarte

21st February, 2012

I’ve finally had time to properly sort through the thousands of pictures snapped over Fashion Week ~ and these backstage glimpses from before the Rodarte show were the first I just had to share! I loved getting to see the clothes close-up, and to watch in awe as the models were transformed into sand-swept sprites. And indeed it was sand that filled the shoes’ plexiglass heels ~ a chic interpretation of summer camp crafts.

    I love Rodarte!! how fun for you

  • Absolutely Mrs. K

    I follow
    you for more than a year now and you were the first blog I ever followed. Always
    have been a fan of your “timeless effortless chique” style! The new blog looks
    really well but it is so much harder to navigate. I know that it is probably
    the idea to dig into your blog, but I am a “lazy” internet user and I love to
    scroll! And I have no idea how to go to the next post. Please don’t get this
    the wrong way, just giving you some feedback? Again, at first side, it looks

      Thanks for your feedback! There’s actually a static toolbar at the bottom of each post which shows ‘PREVIOUS’ on the left and ‘NEXT’ on the right (unless you’re in the most recent post, in which case you’ll only see ‘PREVIOUS’). This was designed to make scrolling through posts as easy as it was before ~ you’re just scrolling sideways (like in a book or magazine) instead of up + down. Hope that makes sense?

    The make up on some of these models could only work on the runway, I cannot see myself walking around town with a “tan gone bad” lol
