{PHOTO BLAST} Playing With Pandora’s Box

Louise Brooks- Legendary in Pandoras Box

You know how the story goes, don’t you?

She was a seductive woman  and the first woman in Greek mythology. Made from Earth to punish Prometheus for his overreaching and theft of the sacred fire, her youthful curiosity led her to opening a mysterious jar, the “Pandora’s Box”, that contained all the evils of humanity, releasing them into the wild.

According to the myth, she closed the jar leaving only HOPE inside.

Thanks, Pandora.

It’s an age old tale going back to Ancient times, but the story is still permeating our landscape to this day.

Was Pandora just curious, or did she have a bit of a wild streak? You know how they say if your parents say not to do something, you’re going to do it. A little work of the Rebel Spirits, perhaps?

We wanted to make a {PHOTO BLAST} dedicated to the ultimate bad girl, and the many incarnations we saw of her. So please, enjoy!

Until Next Time,

{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,

Breathtaking Vintage 1960s Beehive Bad-Ass Beauty

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Check it! The Eye of Faith is becoming more and more of an art gallery, and we love it!

We are finding so many unique and intriguing vintage images everyday, and we love the many people who see the beauty in these remarkable snapshots of the past. They are indeed, frozen moments lost in the time . . .

We are so fascinated by the stories contained within each of them, but most of the time we will just never know. Take for instance one of our favourite “moments” of our collection of vintage vernacular . . . The Breathtaking Vintage 1960s Beehive Bad-Ass Beauty! That’s right.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Quite the impressive hive she’s got there. She is a beautiful idol to natural beauty, and the mystery photographer definitely appreciated his subject as so. An original photograph from the 1960s, this image transcends past any insecurity of the “not knowing”-ness of it all, and lives to be a timeless image suitable for anyone of discerning tastes, and an eye for something special.

Tell your friends, and help spread the word! And don’t be shy to want her all to yourself, because you can buy her now on Etsy!

Vintage vernacular (snapshots) is an authentic and affordable way to collect contemporary art, which is why we are such big fans. We know there are like-minded people out there, and if that’s you, you can check out the {SHOP} for more cool vintage photographs for sale <<click here>>.

She may not last long out there, so check it out while you can!

I’m not sure where this is from, but might just be a silly Halloween marketing scheme for juice from the 60s?
