Slim Aarons!!!

Ta-da- my new Amazon book store is up and running, so in honor of that I thought I would let all of you in on some of my favorite design books.  I started writing about several of my fav's but when I got to the incredible Slim Aarons, I realized he deserved is very own post.

For those of you that don't know Slim Aarons work quick, stop reading and go get Once Upon A Time, A Place In The Sun or Poolside. He photographed everyone who was anyone (or just beautiful) for Life and Town and Country in the 50's through the 80's.  As Slim would say "I photographed attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places" not a bad life!




I hope this inspire's you to go get yourself a fab vintage dress, mix up some cocktails and have a great weekend!
