Lately, I’ve been listening to Death Cab For Cutie’s new album “Narrow Stairs” non-stop. Each time I make my way through the tracks I further convince myself that I will never tire of it. Likewise, I will never tire of album’s wonderful cover art created by designer, EE Storey.
Needless to say this album has been my source of inspiration on numerous levels. Come to think of it, when I saw the DCFC album cover I was reminded of a colorful collage Elisabeth Dunker, of Fine Little Day, posted back in March, that had me equally smitten. These two pieces of art have me on a bit of a cut & paste bender that has now filtered into my wardrobe. Lucky for me, the color block & painterly trends seem to coincide with my search for colorful geometric frocks & accessories. Here are a few items that might as well have been inspired by the very artworks I referenced above:
