This seriously took my breath away. This is such a visually stunning commercial for Sony. 8 million vibrant flower petals shower down on a small village in Costa Rica. When I first saw these photos, I immediately remembered another commercial for Sony involving rubber balls cascading down the hilly streets of San Francisco. I would have loved to be in that village playing in the piles of flower petals.

VISUALLY LOVELY {9}

This Spring 2014 collection by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac is incredible. I really love the mix of patterns, hand lettering and figure drawings on the garments. I am especially in love with the black and white long dress. His collection reminds me of an amazing jacket I came across at a vintage shop. I cannot remember the designer, but that particular jacket was a knock at Chanel’s iconic jacket. All the details were hand panted on the jacket, like the pockets, buttons and other details. I often think of that jacket and kick myself for not buying it.

Is it weird to say I cannot wait for fall? Red Valentino’s Fall 2013 collection makes me so happy. It seriously screams ME, I would wear every single piece in this collection. It has such a fairy tail feel, and I love the Hansel and Gretel paintings. I cannot get enough of the embroidered embellishments, and the playful silhouettes.

When I came across these images for Comme Des Garçons / Idoménée Book via trendland I instantly stopped everything so I could enjoy the amazing visuals. I love the mix of colors and cut-out shapes. I might have to snag this book.

Alexander McQueen’s pre-fall 2013 collection is probably the most stunning thing I have seen in awhile. This collection was inspired by the clergy of the church, with a very baroque inspired patterns and silhouettes. His collections are always so dramatic pieces of art, I am speechless.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY VISUALLY LOVELY

I cannot believe it has already been a year since my blog launched. There has definitely been some rough spots but all in all it has been really rewarding. I have fallen back in love with design, which is amazing because for awhile I started to doubt my decision as a graphic designer. I have also grown as a designer and worked with some great new clients. I am currently working on a new design for my site so I can take it to the next level.

I also want to thank my friends, family and all the people that visit my site regularly.  This started as a space for me to share recipes, design and inspiration for myself and friends. Seeing it become so much more is exciting, I look forward to watching visually lovely grow.
