Here’s what has been getting us excited and inspired this week at Alima Pure!
Spend an afternoon exploring the Italian Style exhibit at the Portland Art Museum celebrating the glamour, detail, and craft that Italy is known for.
Or if you’re not in Portland, or even if you are, indulge yourself further by checking out the absolute visual treat that is the book “Italian Style: Fashion since 1945”.
“A peer-to-peer, self-directed learning lab, School of Doodle is dedicated to activating girls’ imaginations through entertainment, education and community. With its free online curriculum, School of Doodle is a new kind of digital learning experience where artists, creators and students are the teachers and imagination and creativity are the lessons.” What’s not to love about that?
Iris Apfel has been an inspiration and icon to me for years. A strong woman and personality, she is getting her moment in the spotlight this April when the documentary “Iris” is released. Until then, we at least have the trailer!
Seeking recipe inspiration? Tending the Table is my new source for meal creativity. This weekend I’ll be whipping up the white bean, parsnip, and sage dip for a (hopefully) sunny picnic on the Portland Skidmore Bluffs.
If you’re looking to spice up your bathroom, these are probably what you didn’t know you needed.
Raf Simons was announced as Creative Director at Dior in April 2012, and had just eight weeks to create and present his first couture collection at Paris Fashion Week. This new documentary follows that journey and transition while paying homage to the high power fashion house and all the people who encompass it.
