When Life Was Young

March 18, 2011

I love the soft and understated femininity of this editorial. Patricia van der Vliet has the most amazing delicacy about her, she was definitely the perfect choice for it.

So on a different note, I added this little sidebar playlist and I just wanted to make sure that it doesn’t bother you guys at all. If it does, please let me know and I’ll remove it! I just feel funny sometimes not incoporating music in a more significant way on my blog. As some of you might remember, I got my start writing by doing freelance music journalism and music’s always been such a big part of my life that I thought it’d be nice to showcase some of the songs I currently have on repeat.

Please give me your feedback – if you find it annoying or hate the choices (trust me, I get a lot of flack for some of my musical selections sometimes so I won’t take it personally), I’d be more than happy to get rid of it. I do hope you enjoy it though!

Have a great Friday my lovelies!

    Hey Alexandra! How are you? I really love the simple pieces used in this editorial and the dress in the third picture is my favorite. I'm kind of torn about blogs playing music because if I'm also playing music on my computer, it can be a bit, um, annoying (I'm not saying the music on your blog is annoying at all!). I actually love listening to other people music and I ended up adding them to my music list anyway. But maybe you can add a feature where you can show the music you're listening instead of having it played automatically when someone visits your blog? But I love all your music and they will on my list (we like the same kind of music too 🙂 xoxoxoxoo

    I <3 how ethereal she looks… kind of like a young Tilda Swinton. Anyway, I didn't even notice the sidebar on your blog until you pointed it out. The music doesn't start on its own, does it? It didn't for me anyway and for me, that's when I find a playlist annoying (since I often have music playing on my own computer). If it doesn't start on its own then I think it's completely fine, if it does then truthfully it would be a bit annoying to me (but not enough to drive me away from your blog of course!).

    Happy weekend Alexandra!
