Around the World Wide Web III

1. Hippie High

1 My adoptive siblings grew up in these era. My mother kept their clothes in the closet located in the other bedroom, one weekend when I was in freshmen high, I got bored so I raided said closet. I still remember the overwhelming smell of moth balls and old clothes like it was yesterday. it was a treasure throw for vintage lovers. My favorite piece was my brother’s brown belly bottoms. I went to a catholic private school that has a ridiculous uniform policy so I only got to wear them on the occasional “civilian” event and on weekends when I go out with friends. This image makes me nostalgic. via Retronaut

The hubs and I are renewing our wedding vows this year, I am now in wedding preparation mode. We didn’t have a big church wedding 10 years ago so this year in commemoration of that big event in our lives, we are throwing a huge party. It will be non-traditional, indie close friends and family type. I am so excited.

2. This rare snapshot of the Romanov family

$(KGrHqR,!joFCfIP)mmoBQsH5voypw~~60_57

Rare photos taken by the last tsar himself – Nicholas II and colored by his third daughter Maria surfaced. Most photos are normal some creepy. All of them gave me an uneasy feeling yet I could not look away nor stop myself for viewing it a total of 5 times. I think it is because of the history of the family and intrigue.

Air France bought 20,000 copies of the latest print of Charlie Hebdo, it was their latest print after the 01/07 attack. The company bought it for any passengers who would like a copy.

The 16-page issue, compiled by the remaining Charlie Hebdo staff, has the newspaper’s usual controversial cartoons and provocative content. It includes illustrations from cartoonists killed in the attack, and a drawing of the Prophet Muhammad on the cover, which has angered some Muslims. – via Mashable

4. Slavik, the most fashionable homeless dude in Ukraine

$(KGrHqR,!joFCfIP)mmoBQsH5voypw~~60_57

Slavik is a 55 year old homeless gypsy discovered by photographer Yurko Dyachyshyn on the street of Lviv. Unlike other homeless gypsies, he appears to have different article of clothing everyday, and they are always fashionable. It was said that he gets his outfits from donation centers fro the homeless. he was never seen with bags or shopping carts full of bottles we normally see with a homeless person.

Here’s a snippet of the interview with Yurko found on his website

Slavik indeed has a sense of fashion. What does he think about fashion and style? What is his story?

Slavik is a freak, so he does not communicate adequately and his answers are not entirely clear. To all my questions about clothes and why he does it, he replies that things are vanity and that you can find lots of things in the trash. Slavik says that you should care about health and keep away from those who could ruin your peace of mind. Despite such indifferent answers, Slavik still has a sense of beauty, style and fashion and his suits are not random. It is not accidental that he changes them every day, adjusting them carefully to weather and season.

My attempts to learn the story of his life were vain. The excerpts of his story that I revealed are difficult to build in some sort of chronology. I did not try to influence or change your life. I was documenting another strange and unique personal story.

Often Slavik disappeared for long periods of time and, suddenly, reemerged again, asking where I had been.  He called me his friend and said that it was very scary to lose a friend.

For the last time I saw him in January of 2013. I hope he is well now and that one day he will suddenly appear behind my back saying: “Hey buddy, where’ve you been?”

5. How about this dog?

$(KGrHqR,!joFCfIP)mmoBQsH5voypw~~60_57

“All the bus drivers know her. She sits here just like a person does,” says one commuter about the dog, who often roams the aisles, sits in the seats, looks out the windows, and, of course, licks everything in sight. “She makes everybody happy,”

Several times, our dog Sumo roamed around the neighborhood and come back when he’s done sniffing and playing with the Chinese kids at the next block, freaked me out but I thought that was cool. But this Lab?! how awesome is that.

6. This bizarre convention for “Maskers”

$(KGrHqR,!joFCfIP)mmoBQsH5voypw~~60_57

Rubber Doll World Rendezvous is a convention for people who wears latex/ silicone body suits. This dude -a 70 year old resident here in orange County, CA named Robert, has been wearing his suit that he calls “Sherry” for 12 years now.

I am flabbergasted this news article is the same caliber as when I ready about Bronycon. my final opinion about this subject, as long as they are not harming anybody (and as long as my kids don’t see them) they can dress whoever or should I say whatever they want.

Around the World Wide Web – I

Happy New year! Happy new feature. Since I prance around the internet everyday, I decided to start sharing some of the articles / photos I found, that fascinated me. AWWW or Around the World Wide Web

1. This adorable totally fair priced ring

2. This Medici family necklace

Saw this on an article published on 2013 that featured Mellerio dits Meller jewellery house for the 400th year in business. They’ve been serving (mostly the European nobles/ royalty) since 1613, very impressive.

3. Post Mortem photogrpahy

FE1

Like I said the segment is called “around the web” Huffington Post and several other blogs (drawing a blank) posted an article last year (and I’ve been looking ever since) about how in the Victoria era getting oneself or family photograph is a once in a lifetime thing. They were being literal, one tradition is a memento mori, While photography was lesser in cost than the painted portrait it was still quite pricey. For most families they would hire a photographer to take photos of their newly deceased loved ones as a keepsake.

4. This photo taken in North Korea

FE1

The recent month’s hacking of Sony Exec’s e-mail made me curious about North Korea, I do not know anything about them besides the facts that they live in their own world. So I started reading up on North Korean facts and oh man I am glad I don’t live in North Korea in my mind, I already broke most of the laws they enforce there.

7. This amazing library

FE1

The Admont Abbey in Austria Even at this digital age, I still long to have my own private library, it will be my ultimate woman. Nothing beats the smell of both old and new books and to have that physical copy, the act of flipping the pages… yeah I am one of those.

8. A news articles about Coach buying Stuart Weitzman, NO!!!

FE1

I respect Coach as a company but not a fan of their designs, I am afraid that they’ll change the Stuart Weitzman designs and mirror it like their own.
