Marie Piovesan photographed by Sara M Saric for Forward by Elise Walker.

This most glorious campaign by one of my favorite luxe online retailers has fast become my go to for inspiration of any kind. Despite encountering this a few weeks back, I'm not entirely sure why I've refrained from sharing until now; keeping it solely for myself, but better late than never.

Nowadays, when we envision vampy looks we immediately visualise a style pertaining elusively with dark lips and possibly kohl lined eyelids. That seems to be the current definition of it anyway, though be it horribly incorrect. For me vamp is attitude, a strong, edgy inner confidence not bound by trends nor rules. And this campaign highlights my point perfectly. Nude lips, black assembled on black and strength to boot. Of course access to an abandoned residence in LA helps intensify the grunge, punk rock elements; as does your pick of anything McQueen.

Love.

  12. Yes, perfect vampy look. The make-up is just right, the leather is amazing and the girl is to die for.
    I'm still in search for that perfect dark lipstick shade though...

  13. Oh Sonia, you can't keep all these inspirations to yourself. You have to share these beautiful photos. I love them. It's true that my idea of vamp is as what you first described as the common view but I totally get and agree with your idea of vamp too. I love your posts because you always share inspirational stuff whether they are of your own cooking, art pieces, fashion editorial...

    RYC:
    Hey Sonia. Some of my friends are surprised that I don't really have a travel itinerary whenever they wanted to refer to them after seeing my travels. Be it in word doc or excel doc. The thing is, my itinerary is just too mental and fluid, dependant on mood and weather each day too. I can' follow a strict day by day itinerary all planned prior to the trip. That's just me. I'm glad that I'm finding more and more like-minded people around. When we were young, we seemed to discover a lot more random hideouts and passageways. Maybe that's how hide-and-seek came about. The children these days don't seem to play hide-and-seek anymore.

    1. I know, I know. I shall cease to be selfish from this point forward Jo. I think it needed to be put out there. Vamp has been around long before it was trendy and seems to be the word du jour right now. I love the way your mind works, I try to plan things out but I always end up frustrated because there is too much to see and do with the little time I have allocated. Sometimes it's just better to wing it xx

  35. Be still my heart- everything about this is edge and strength. Like I would not mess with one of these bad bitches. My favorite is probably the first one, with that awesome black necklace. Can you imagine having a piece like that?! My life would be complete.

    1. Ahahaha, yeah, you'd definitely wouldn't mess with someone as bad ass as that. And agreed on that necklace, it is super gorgeous, I was trying to find the exact piece but have had no luck, though I imagine it would cost an arm and leg! xx
