Blog Crush

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

It's official, I'm having a blog crush on Au coin de ma rue. The girl behind it photographs people that she finds unforgettable and that have a certain "je ne sais quoi". The twist is that she posts all the photos in a fun and unique way by separating them into head and toes part. She also has a new project (that I can't get enough of) where she posts a portrait of a person and a selection of items that they chose to "represent them at this moment of their life". So creative! Loves, what items would you choose? xoxo

P.S: Totally smitten with the first girl (those red lips)
