I love, love, love. My most recent theatrical obsession. I adored the book, of course, and saw the 2005 movie version when it came out. I loved it then, but saw it on television the other night and just could not get enough. I realized how beautiful the filming is, and how mesmerizing the soundtrack is. I've become more and more fond of classically-influenced music over the years, and the songs featured in the movie are some of my newfound favorites. All I want to do is turn up the volume and let the sounds waft through my window and out into the world.

I've been making my way through Style.com for what seems the millionth time, pouring over the recent collections. It's been hard to pick out my favorites, for there are many, but I have decided to post the ones that I deem most so. There are quite a few, so I plan on posting a few each day, but an endless array of inspiration is sure to follow.

Alexander McQueen always amazes-- fashion heavy-hitter and forward-thinker. As always, his Spring 2010 collection was show-stopping. Everything from the ornamented clothing, to the sky-scraper hair, and of course, the shoes. Ah, the shoes. Have you ever seen such things? They cannot even be described, for they are so unique, so sculptural. I for one find them beautiful, mainly from the artistic, constructional point of view. Some seem as if they are welded together, some look like melted wax or plastic, and others seem as if they have been carved by marble. Absolutely fabulous. I don't believe there is any other way to describe them. I believe they have impacted the fashion industry in a very blatant way, and I hope to experience more of this style in mainstream fashion. But, as was put by an onlooker while writing this post, "How the heck are you supposed to walk in those things?"
Ah, but I believe we all would agree, with shoes such as these, such an ability is a technicality.

I never was very fond of Picasso until I started learning more about him, and how versatile he is as an artist. He possesses so much formal, academic skill, yet chooses to explore other styles. His work has always been somewhat dismissed in the critical view due to its more outlandish nature, but in the world of art and understanding of style and technique, it's quite profound.

While reading PostSecret earlier this morning, one of my Sunday rituals, I discovered a link posted by a reader to this very cool site called 1000 Awesome Things. In it, is just as the name says.
It just shows that the little things in life are what makes it so worth living.
