5D by oppenheim

November 20, 2011

Some images possess the 5D powers. Like these out-of-the-world renderings of the award-winning Wadi Rum Resort in Jordan by super-talented team of Oppenheim Architecture + Design.

We all know what 3D is, so the 4th D is for the sound and feel of the swooping sand between the mountains which I can swear you get just by looking at this presentation. And the 5th D I give for the incredible peaceful and relaxing after-taste that is left with you, it’s almost like going on a mini vacation. Don’t you agree?

that designer is CrAzY

How do you know that the designer is…well…a little obsessed? It’s when instead of placing the chandelier at the “industry standard” height, one places it much lower. The reason? Isn’t it obvious, so that the diners all through the supper could marvel at the every last detail of that piece of art.

Had a burning desire to do just that today at work, but those standards (god bless them) took over…again. There’s always the next time!

the magic of the yellow pants

November 8, 2011

I have to say something here.  A week before we took off for THE vacation, I was killing an extra hour in a mall. Didn’t need to buy anything – just ‘coz! And then…I’ve bought the yellow pants. Contradicting my practical shopping habits I didn’t plan on getting them, I didn’t think twice and moreover I had nothing to pair them up with.

Was I sticking out of the crowd on the “pre-fashion week” streets of Paris? Hmmm, kinda. Did I make a statement and turn heads? Hell yeah! So guess what, now everywhere I look I see THE YELLOW PANTS!

Have I started the trend?

the dream vacay: part 1

November 2, 2011

I promised to share, once I get back to normal pace..so I finally went through trillion of snaps and put together a little collage of the first stop of our dreamy vacation this last September.

We’ve spent an incredible 5 days in the most beautiful city in the world and it felt more like a teaser for the future come-backs. You really can’t have enough of that place no matter how long you stay there.

Now I have to say something in my defense. You say: “Beret, stripe top and Eiffel Tower. Could you be any more innovative?”.  And I say: “Please, let the girl get it out of the system right away!”.  I’ve DONE all of the clichés and I’m PROUD of it!

Even if Paris wouldn’t have had a single site to see, the food and long walks would still lit the lights!

Macarooooons! Need I say more?!

Style vs. Comfort?! It was never a question for me. If you have to suffer in order to wear THOSE shoes, then this will be it! Practicing what I preach, I was teh only one climbing the stairs of the Eiffel Tower in hills.  But at the end of the day after walking the streets, the gilded halls, then streets again and some more gilded halls even I gave up. So, YES we did wrinkle the perfectly groomed Versailles lawns.

PS. Honey, thank you for letting me borrow you stylishly comfy sneakers! Love ya!
