hello monday

"I never dreamt to be a model, never never dreamt to be a fashion editor but I just love the pages and the pictures. in my early years as a fashion editor, I worked with norman parkinson who was a really big photographer, and he taught me to always keep your eyes open, you know. never go to sleep in the car or anything like that, keep watching because whatever you see out the window or wherever, it can inspire you."

  3. Oh, I love that quote! When I saw that documentary about Vogue I found myself falling in love with her. I was fascinated by her creativity and realized that most of her photos are the ones I save from the magazine.

  4. It's a great picture Andrea, really great, and I like the words too,especially because I love watching outside the window car, it is one of my favourite inspiration moments (maybe that's why I don't drive...), but, sadly, I often fall asleep too...

I wanted to tell you that one the things I am thankful for today is blogging and the way it has made my world so much bigger. Thank you for the friendship, the wisdom, and the inspiration I have found here. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, my friend. Happy Thanksgiving!
