We heart Polaroids...ON SCARVES
I remember when I used to play with my mum's Polaroid camera in front of the mirror as a kid. Things haven't changed now that I am a bit older so instead of playing I am in hunt for the same camera around antique shops. What- If Rachel Zoe has it, I have to have it too.
Joking apart, when Polaroid manufacture announced no longer production back in 2008, the photographers didn't feel very well, nor designers too- fashion shows could barely function without polaroids. But thanks to The Impossible Project, new techniques, Urban Outfitters, Lady Gaga's partnership with corporation, finally we can have a sigh of relief. And to heal the sadness we were feeling, we need to celebrate with every single polaroid. So except I celebrate with Andy Warhol, who is my one of favorites related to fashion polaroids or Jeremy Kost, few months ago I fell in love with those that Antonio Barros snaps. I'm sure if you are reading misslikey long enough you noticed that obsession of mine on the header of blog. Sometimes I just like to imagine everything as polaroid image, even myself, so you can imagine the happiness I felt today I bumped on collection of polaroid scarves on Reborn shop pages. Yes, you did understand well- Printed polaroid images on pure silk, luxurious and soft scarves. You don't know what to do with them first- to hang them on the wall or wrap around your neck?!

Chèrie.
