Dita Von Teese- my fashion favorite.

Dita Von Teese is a true fashionista. Sometimes her outfits are a little off but, she takes risks and wears her clothes all out all the time. Even when I don't personally like what she is wearing, she looks amazing. I really love all of these looks on her. The images are from all over.

Jennifer Post: interior designer and more.

Jennifer Post is an interior designer with an educational background in fine art, photography, design and architecture. Her firm, Jenifer Post Design, designs interiors and architecture. Her firm has offices in NY, Miami and LA. Post's work is characterized by simplicity and has sometimes been referred to as 'classic minimalism.' Her crisp lines and calming interiors come to life with colorful paintings, natural textures, and very close attention to details. You can clearly see her education background reflected in her work. I hope you enjoy these pics as much as I do; they are all from her website:

Hugh Newell Jacobsen-Architect.

Jacobsen is best known for his American vernacular architecture. He worked primarily on residences and did a lot of work on the east coast. Jacobsen earned his B. Arch. and M.

The work of Bart Prince.

Bart Prince is one of the west coast's great architects. His work is very unique and is primarily residences. His buildings remind me of Gaudi to a certain degree; they look as if they are almost organic and growing out of themselves. Some might say they look haphazard but, the organic look is always harder to pull off and much more time consuming to design. I found these images all on
