More then a picture...

Picture Me Trailer from Blake on Vimeo.

Everyone knows the fashion world can be very harsh in reality but thanks to model Sara Ziff and Ole Schell you can see the raw footage of the fashion modeling world from the eyes of Sara Ziff over the past 5 years. The film is called Picture Me.

The film considers the ever increasing demand for adolescent models, the pressure to stay thin, sexual harassment and drug use. This intimate account features in-depth interviews with noted photographers and designers, and showcases personal footage shot by the models themselves, giving voice to those who are often seen, but rarely heard.

I saw this post on 80s Purple blog and I thought this movie looks really intriguing. We always get to see the glamor of models, but this light shines another look into the fashion lifestyle and reality for some. I will definitely be checking this out soon....

Street style + inner beauty tips

I am always inspired by street fashion. The way people choose to present themselves to the world in there clothes and styling.

If we spent as much time working on our outer appearance as we do our inner beauty the world would be an even more beautiful place.
A few tips I try to do to work on the inner beauty:
1. Relax and meditate
2. Do something nice for someone else
3. Read an inspirational book

Here's a few note worthy photos from stockholmStreetStyle
