i spy: modern interiors, ancient exteriors, and gals with guns and books

I have to laugh every time I look at that New Era ad, below.  The non-models in coats in the found photo above the New Era ad are really selling their chic looks better, I think.

Also, can I have Anita Loos' dress, shoes, and haircut, please?  

More inspiration can be seen on my Tumblr and Pinterest.

  1. The expressions on the ladies at the bottom of the New Era add are amazing!

  2. I really do like your taste in images.

    There's a book on the work of Mariska Karasz that is really interesting.
