{PHOTOBLAST} Styled To Rock ! [Vintage Style Inspiration]

Styled to Rock-Best Damn Sweater Ever - Vintage Menswear Inspiration- The Eye of Faith

Whether today, sixty years ago, or seventy-five from now, we will always have the need to look good, and put ourselves together in a way that says ‘this is me’. It’s our suit; our armor that lets the world know we mean business.

No matter the day for us, we always like to set the mood for the day with a healthy dose of style, and with the release of Rihanna‘s “Styled to Rock” (finally; the UK version was the SHIT) in the US, we couldn’t help but feel the need to do what we do best: look back to the {past} for clues to the {present} to help us foresee and shape the {future}.

Rihanna always gets it done, and with the epitome of laid-back rock n’ roll sophisticated bad ass cool, Erin Wasson, hosting the gig, it’s a wicked hour of fashion meets music, and the basis for this wicked {Photoblast} of vintage style inspiration that explores some of our predecessors who knew how good life can be when you are Styled to Rock!

Dress to Impress, or Undress…

Until we meet again,

10 Sexy Menswear Ads from the 1970s!

Happy Birthday Howard Carter! (9 May 1874 – 2 March 1939)

Howard Carter was born in London, England, the son of Samuel Carter, a skilled artist, who trained him to follow in his footsteps, and Martha Joyce (Sands) Carter.  Born eager and inquisitive, at 17, the young talented artist was sent out by the Egypt Exploration Fund to assist Percy Newberry in the excavation and recording of Middle Kingdom tombs at Beni Hasan.  Even at that young age he was innovative in improving the methods of copying tomb decoration.

On 4 November 1922, Carter’s excavation group found the steps leading to Tutankhamun‘s tomb ,  by far the best preserved and most intact pharaonic tomb ever found in the Valley of the Kings.

Carter made the “tiny breach in the top left hand corner” of the doorway, and was able to peer in by the light of a candle and see that many of the gold and ebony treasures were still in place. He made the breach into the tomb with a chisel his grandmother had given him for his seventeenth birthday. He did not yet know at that point whether it was “a tomb or merely a cache”, but he did see a promising sealed doorway between two sentinel statues. When Carnarvon asked “can you see anything?”, Carter replied with the famous words: “Yes, wonderful things.”

Photo blast: Playing with the Shadows.

Perhaps it’s hidden in the shroud of nightfall. Tucked behind us where we sleep. Easy to play with, but we’d never want to temper with our shadows, or do anything to risk loosing it completely. Perhaps just a circumstance of light, there is a darkness always behind us. We may resist, but we can never escape a round of shadow play.

“I thought the most beautiful thing in the world must be shadow.”
Sylvia Plath

A human being is only breath and shadow.
Sophocles

Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Never alone, we walk through the day with a constant companion by our side. We enjoy manipulation of the light in the night. But what would we do if we couldn’t find our shadow? Would you miss it, where would it go? Would you even notice that it had left at all? A shadow is a reflection of the life we live, running parallel with our souls. Without life, would a shadow need to exist?
