l'amoureux

Hi All,
I've been getting back into Polaroid pictures lately. The grainy quality seems to capture some moments better than any high tech digital camera. Thankfully, I stocked up on film when I heard they were ending production on it. Here are some shots that I like from this past month.


(1. At a photo shoot, 2. Trying out my new hat, 3. Me and Danielle in Montreal, 4. Getting hair and makeup done at a photo shoot, 5. My best friend Chris is a rock star, 6. Trying out my new whistle necklace)
P.S. Yesterday my laptop went to computer heaven, and took with it all my pictures, including what was meant to be today's outfit post. Please excuse the delay as I'm still in a state of mourning.

  3. so sad about your computer!!!!!such a stressful and costly scenario. love how you say it went to computer heaven lol. sweet.

    and i love polaroids. love them. the film is soooooooo expensive! still have some as well but really not much. my favourite thing to do with polaroids is to cut open the back as it's exposing and sponge it down lightly for a unique blurred effect and then you can collage the picture with cut-outs from magazines.

    you look beautiful :) always.

  23. I am SO SORRY you lost your computer and its contents! That is a serious fucking nightmare. I've never cursed in a blog comment before, but man oh man....
    On the other hand I am a HUGE polaroid lover. I have a polaroid camera from the late 80s that has a shoulder strap like a purse and I swear it still takes the best photos in the world!!!
    Love these.

  38. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You know I heard that they are gonna produce polaroids "again" as they went down in like 2000, then 2008. 2010 will see the year off a new polaroid venture.apparently. I really hope so, ever since Kirsten Dunst used one In Crazy Beautiful I've been obsessed.

  44. beautiful polaroids.

    sorry about your computer :(

    ReplyDelete
  45. hey love, I hope you're doing fine (except for the laptop crash- damn, this sounds bad), either way you look amazing, polaroids should be the only way of posting pictures in our blogs, I'm just obsessing over these now.

    I am seriously hungover today (hence my probably slightly weird comment) and will probably stay in bed, promising myself I will be a better (equals less excessive) girl from now on.
    and is that title a reference to carla bruni? I have all of her records and absolutely love them!

  46. Ah man, i totally feel for you. RIP to your computer. When mine died last year i was extremely destabilized!

    Beautiful photos. It's funny to think that in 20 years, polaroids will be ancient and we'll be talking about them how our parents talk about records...

    ReplyDelete
  47. beautiful pics as always! so annoying about the comp! i think my is on its death bed i hope it lasts till i get a new one x

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm sorry about your laptop :(

    And the polaroids are perfect, you're 100% right...sometimes the grainy finish and the trademark border are the perfect substitute.

    And you look fab throughout bella. Love.
