This is late, I know all you fashionistas are aware of SPJ’s new offering, but I figured I put my two cent in.
Sarah Jessica Parker is back! This time the fashionable diva is pushing a new shoe line, SJP at Nordstrom. Now I got mad love for SJP and I really appreciated her affordable fashion line Bitten and I hated that the line was discontinued when her retailer went out of business. Sooo, I guess she wants to make sure she won’t be traveling down that road again because her new shoes line is housed at retail heavy weight – Nordstrom. This is good stuff. However the new line that launched in February has a new price point – $195 to $750 which includes shoes and handbags!
This is SJP rationale: “Shoes seemed like the most natural connection because of the role I played on a show for so long,” Parker says. “And I thought, ‘How could I ask someone else to spend their hard-earned dollars on something that I myself might not wear every day?’ I wanted a beautiful, well-made shoe that was still affordable, that would last forever in your closet.” Okay, so she needed to give her shoes a designer price point in order to rock them? I’m not quite understanding. Clearly I will have to wait for a markdown because I don’t open my wallet to purchase shoes until the price hits under $200.
What I see I like, only downside for me personally is she made a choice to not produce any heels over 4.25 inches. I guess that’s a good thing in a practical way because I really need to downgrade my heel height now that I’m pushing 50, but I want to try to get away with wearing 5 inch heels at least for another 2 years before I move on down to a 4 inch. Still there is a lot of cute stuff here, what do you think ladies?
The tiny artworks that portray the history of your life.
Today, wedding photography is an industry and at the same time it is an absolutely beautiful art. I will never stop believing that creating lovely memories for couples who decided to be together for the rest of their lives is an art. A Fairmont Hotel wedding photographer that gets paid for his work, also is an artist. He transforms moments into tangible memories. This is pure art.
Creation in photography works hand in hand with the authenticity of life. You simply cannot make it all up, every photograph has the initial origin something that has really happened. Capturing the bride and the groom has been always exciting and there is something magical even about the regular couple photos. Not every job is about watching and freezing specific moments of people’s lives. Wedding photography is about freezing the love of two forever. It is an extremely needed art, because people don’t only want beautiful photographs of rings, cakes and floral bouquets, they are also feeling the emotion of the wedding over and over again. Feeling it all again just by looking at an image is so individual and so heartwarming. It is like watching your own movie, reading your own history of life.
Wedding photography like no other sphere has to deal with love and there is so much emotion in every single detail. It all has to be photographed, videotaped and remembered. There is effort, dedication and love. Photographs are bright memories that portray kisses, laughs and hugs. A mother’s tear of joy, a dad’s proud and at the same time sad look can become the subject of an art work, within seconds. The photographer just has to observe that special moment, pick the right angle, push the button and create an eternal moment.
The beautiful ceremony of love is that kind of event that incorporates just too many things, sometimes you feel like it’s just too intense. This intensity comes from the high feeling of love and the romantic atmosphere that rules the party. And it all can be seen in the wedding photographs. The photographs taken today are the memories you will own for the rest of your life. They are the tiny art works that portray the history of your life.
