Spanish Rose

 There are no words that aptly describe how much I love Penelope Cruz I think shes the most gorgeous woman alive. Oh I would!  I hate to admit I've watched Vicky Christina Barcelona at least 20 times! An all time favorite of mine. <3

"Frida Kahlo painted herself but she also unveiled the stories of women who give birth to pools of blood... her painting is the story of women between virgils and dreams, of those who, full of uncertainties, dare to know themselves paint themselves and create themselves."

---Marjorie Agosin

This Mexican painter, most famous for her self portraits is a hero of many.  She would often shock people by the images in her paintings, paintings that portrayed her life of suffering and her conflicted marriage with Diego Rivera.  What is it about her that still makes the whole world drawn to her?    At first I thought she was famous for her eyebrows! Ha! My sister often calls me Frida Kahlo because I have such bushy eyebrows. I haven't seen the movie with Selma Hayek yet but I do feel inspired to!  I was immediately drawn to this Frida Kahlo spread from Harper's Bazaar (2001) with Maria Carla Boscono.

I had to grab a copy of this months Harper's Bazaar staring Eva Green by Camilla Akrans.    I fell in love with Eva when she played Vesper Lynn in Casino Royale. Oh there is really something dark and mysterious about this woman! This spread features the French actress rocking YSL and Tom Ford.  

Eva in television series, Camelot. Chills!

Box Bag's

I find it very difficult to find box bags, especially vintage grosgrain box bags.  I love the different shapes and colors that they come in. Such a basic accessory can look so elegant at the same time.
