Oh man these photographs of a petite Batman adventuring solo through Texas make me smile. Photographer Remi Noel thought Batman deserved a vacation from Gotham and took him on a trip down south. He looks so confused when faced with vehicles or phones and how does an action figure project so much sheepishness in a laundry room..?

I can never see enough abandoned places in person or online although the latter tends to dominate my experiences. Even when I do find the odd abandoned barn I'm often too nervous to venture far inside myself--they sometimes look quite unstable! Thankfully there are many more brave souls in the world outside who do venture inside and capture their experiences beautifully on camera. Christian Richter a photographer based out of Germany seems to focus his abandoned adventures on staircases. Spiraled, colorful, and all decaying it's a stunning collection of images and places.
Although I only had blue hair for one summer it remains one of my favorite colors of hair so my style crush on teal-haired queen Mademoiselle Yulia should come as no surprise. Mademoiselle Yulia is a DJ so street style pictures of her can be hard to find; she's more likely to be shot in a campaign or at a club spinning, but her style when captured is killer. Unlike most style crushes I post on her looks are very real world casual--a punk mix of denim cut offs, unique boots, and crazy-cool jackets. As cool as her clothes is her dramatic makeup which I'd really like to learn how to imitate someday soon.
Here's another hoarded (or rather merely forgotten and re-found) outfit post for your from yet another snow day--it's probably not a record for Pennsylvania but it's definitely one for me. The weather looked like this just the other day and I was similarly dressed, so in some ways it's hard to place when pictures were taken and when is now. Are we a week into March with several inches of snow still on the ground and the threat of more winter storms over our heads? It seems preposterous in some ways that we are nearly upon spring and winter hasn't even begun to fade, nearly as preposterous as it was for me to go out this day without a hat on--I had underestimated the volume and frequency of the snowflakes which had looked pretty and gentle from my bedroom window. Anyway, I find myself in the third stage of winter grief--that of bargaining. I ask not for sunshine and a true spring, only less snow and temperatures above 30…that does not seem unduly demanding.

Simone Rocha Fall 2014 has really stepped up the coat game. Perhaps it's a sign that outwear can be both beautiful and practical and street style stars will take note and cease to bare their legs in snow storms, or at least one can hope. The Rocha girl is meant to be a revolutionary, the designer was inspired this season by Anne Boleyn. The mix of modern and Elizabethan flair couldn't be more beautifully dramatic and suited for modern starlets as daring as the lady who inspired the looks. View the full collection here.
