i spy: cool dames, dapper gents, and a European vacation

In June my eye was caught by cool dames (like Bardot, Swinton, and Piaf), dapper gentlemen, and anything having to do with Munich or Vienna.  (Yes, I can't stop thinking about our trip to Europe this fall, as you can tell by the second collection of photos below.)

Have a look, and check out my Tumblr and Pinterest for more!

  1. Are you going to Munich as well as Vienna? Lovely city!

    I love the Swinton ad campaign. So beautiful!

  2. Love that photo of Piaf and you must be getting so very excited about your trip! :D
