Dare to Dream

"It’s great to see things you may not buy – because you don’t have the money – but it is very ugly to think they shouldn’t exist because you can not buy them…If you want only things you can afford, it’s boring." tells BBC.co.uk (source)

Some people like to visit the "7 Wonders of the World", me I like to go to markets, Liberty’s, Selfridges or cafes – to be inspired. Lack of inspiration creates boredom. Although maybe something desperate and great is really created from boredom…anyway, there are so many things that I like and so few things that I want. As a stylist I’m not very materialistic, I’m not a pack rat or magpie although I do live surrounded by clutter.

I love the new campaign with . I love this image but I don’t want or desire the bag, the shoes or the clothes. I want something more – I want to have a small pot of hot chocolate and sit with a friend for hours in a cafe like that.

I love the dreams and desires that fashion creates. In reality this is not a cafe in Paris but a cafe in LA. Dare to dream!

    It *is* a lovely composition — the blacks and deep woods move in patterns that almost froth together — and Madonna looks better when she’s turned it down several notches. Happy 2009 Rebekah!

    Indeed, Madonna looks much better in shots like this. I love the richness and atmosphere of this image – as you say Rebekah it’s the setting that entices rather than the clothes etc.
