There is something about the ‘aesthetics’ of vintage things – whether it is (motor) scooters, tea trolleys, vinyl, burlesque-influenced wigs, tailored clothing, or quirky mirrors.
Filming today (in one of my favourite locations) was inspiringly eclectic, with majestic backdrops – from bookshelves crammed with romantic novels to kitsch furniture, dainty crockery, and dismembered mannequins.
People like Bettie Page, Marilyn Monroe and Dita Von Teese – all radiate femininity and glamour.
Buying ‘vintage’ from all over the world – is definitely dreamy.
Great cars too.
Have you discovered Twitter’s new app called Vine? This 6-second video platform is hot. After recording the footage (by holding your finger down on the screen), you can upload onto Twitter or Vine, not Facebook. Apparently, Facebook have recently blocked the (Vine) app to find friends or upload your recording. Sad. Not very social network friendly, really? I love everything social media related, especially Twitter. Vine is only available on Iphone or Ipod apps, not Ipad yet. Some brands have already uploaded their Vine footage, including ‘Urban Outfitters’, ‘Gap’, ‘PBS’ and ‘Red Vines’. What does this mean for YouTube? Will Facebook launch something better? Revolutionary or not?
