{MUSIC MINUTE} “Nothing but a Heartache” by The Flirtations

The Fabulous Flirtations- The Eye of Faith Vintage

the flirtations- mystery abbey - the eye of faith vintage

Nothing but a heartache every day  . . . must be nice.

We were drawn to this dynamic trio whilst listening to our favourite box set of Girl Group classics, and couldn’t resist but share this dazzling number with you.

The video is a rare promotional video shot for their single that depicts the beautiful Flirations amidst the mysterious ruins of what seem to be a church or abbey, the kind we are used to seeing when we picture romantic landscapes, or the English countryside. Northern soul was very popular in England, so perhaps, they made a trip across the water to shoot it.

Certain conspiracy theorists, might have some ideas, I’m sure. Music Industry. Need I say more?

THE FLIRTATIONS- vintage style inspiration- music minute- nothing but a heartache - 1968- the eye of faith

We like to let mysteries stay mysteries now and then . . . if anyone knows more about this, they should share it in the comment section below!

The song was originally record in 1968 by the South Carolina trio and peaked at #34 on the charts in the US, making it to #3 in Boston. The song was relatively popular world wide, but didn’t hit the Top 50 in the UK, settling at 51.

We picture listening to this song on a rain day . . .

Many young men and women must have shaken their tail to this over the years, so lets keep the tradition strong, and carry this fantastic song into the future!

We’ve been milling over 1960s girl group style the past weeks, so expect to see it make its way into our labyrinth of inspiration more and more over the coming days and hours . . .

the flirtations- fabulous to a fault- now hell the hell you get up there?

Don’t lose your balance, girls . . . 

Hope you enjoy!

Until next time,

Come Sail Away With Me . . . Sailing The Norwegian Sea {Summer, 1937}.

Thanks to the National Archives of Norway we found this beautiful series of photographs featuring a long ago lost afternoon dream spent on the beautiful Norwegian Sea.

The photos were taken by photographer Thomas Neumann, and are just a part of a vast faded wonderland,  strange but endearingly and hauntingly beautiful.

These are memories past…Neumann was  a member of the Norwegian Nazi Party, the Nasjonal Samling (NS), from the party’s earliest days. A trained engineer, these photos were donated to the Archives in 2007.

It’s just a summer by the sea. Candid moments caught in between…What we see is what we know. Everything else is lost along the way to getting here.

{STYLE WISE} – The Boys of Summer, Part 1

Don’t know where you are, but here in Toronto the heat has been steadily on the incline. Seems like we’re experiencing a bit of a heat wave, which definitely isn’t the worst thing. After all, we could be getting whipped in the face by clawing cold winds! Not cool. Not in the least.

Apart from escape the cruel contempt of Winter, the Summer brings many unexpected joys such as seeing family, hanging with your chums, maybe even taking a little vacation to a sweet spot far from the hustle of the everyday. That’s what we LIVE for, here at The Eye of Faiththe glory of Summer, as it blooms from the blossom of Spring…

There’s something else the heat conjures from the sand, and that’s The Boys of Summer. No matter where you are, you can find them. Legend has portrayed them as a fun and rambunctious group of gents, grazing the shores for action. Some of them you can even spot in a variety of stripes, spots, or patterns.

The Boys of Summer have coexisted with Mankind now for thousands of years, but only since the development of photography have we been able to keep such brilliant record of these strange and wonderful creatures. While some things have changed (bathing suit fashions), one thing will always be the same, and that’s the pure fun and joy of being able to strut your stuff in the sun.

This is Part 1 of a series of photos entitled “The Boys of Summer“. The dates of the photos range between the 1910s to the 1970s, and really showcase the staying power of true vintage styles!

Enjoy the fun, and don’t get sand in your ears!

Sincerely,

{theEye}
