Bruce Weber x Kate Moss

Googling Bruce Weber is dangerous, I could be here all day.  Couldn't help but share a few more shots of Kate Moss in another issue of Vogue from 2006.

Bruce Weber

I always love Bruce Weber's sporty, all-American and often dog friendly fashion images.  Wish I still had this issue of Vogue from May 2000, this is the definition of happy-chic!

Thanksgiving snapshots aren't exactly moments of bouganvilla dreaming but I can't help but share.  We had such a good time hosting in our cozy little apartment, I couldn't believe such a small space could work so well.  Nine people and about ten dishes in five hundred square feet, now we know it can be done!  I'm already thinking of what we can celebrate next and I love that shot of Ryan eating his pumpkin soup. :)

White Heat

Found these shots for Harper's Bazaar 1992 by Patrick Demarchelier during another marathon browsing session of flickr.  I'm getting so antsy to go back to Greece or anywhere warm and these are beautiful.  Especially loving the composition of the shot with the umbrella.

Bouganvilla Dreaming Shoes

Ohhh lala can't wait to see the rest of these silly but chic shoes by Caroline Issa for L.K Bennett.  Pom Pom's on your ankle's never hurt anyone.  Coming this Spring!

Southern California Dreamin

Southern California dreamin today as usual when I stumbled upon Reath design on tomboy style.  

Would you rather live in Silverlake:

or Paradise Cove?

Kathy Klein's danmalas at Dosa NY

Dosa always does the coolest collaborations and the latest is no exception.  I do have a slight floral obsession that may be influencing my affections but everyone can appreciate the happy rays so clearly emitting from these small pieces of art.

What danmala's are and more according to the danmala website :

In vedic sanskrit dān: the giver, mālā: garland of flowers
the giving of flower circles
Kathy Klein is a devout lover of plants, animals, people and the divine presence within all.  She creates the danmalas by first centering herself in a meditative devotional space.  Next she gathers flowers and natural objects while her mind is kept in mantra, resting in the immaterial. Then, through an act of grace and giving to all, she allows the materials to fall to the will of creation patterns. Her inspiration is given from the golden sound residing within perfect silence. They are reflections of the inexpressible, a gesture which points towards life’s abundance, an unspoken verse of Love. The danmalas remind us all to listen to the unheard voice of nature, creation, and the eternal mystery.

Kate Moss

I've been so neglectful of this blog lately but discovering this photo of Kate Moss shuffling cards has me inspired again.  It looks like there's some June gloom going on but i'd take it...

Jean Shrimpton

Love this 1970's photo of Jean Shrimpton in Oscar de la RentaI discovered via pinterest.  

 Putting a print like this on a more dressed up silluette is perfectly island girl fabulous.

Just came across these images from the Hermes Spring/Summer 2011 ad campaign and fell in love.  The amount of bracelets they put on the model is admittedly a little ridic but still, they always come out with the most elegant, happy chic campaigns.

A scarf is the bouganvilla dreamers favorite accessory. 


no idea what this blog is but you can thank them for scanning in the images!

Isabel Marant Spring 2013

I should have known not to click on "Isabel Marant Spring 2013" on while taking a "quick" break from packing.  How is it that her collection somehow always incorporates everything I love, cowboys one day boho gypsies the next.  I'm already getting excited for the paisley and hawaiian print craze this will inevitably incite.  Plus the accessories are perfect, just simple necklaces and plain leather belts.  This collection is everything a bouganvilla dreamer wants to wear.
