CLEOPATRA-
Cleopatra because she had affinity for emeralds

Like Cleopatra, Aristotle was also a fan of emeralds and would refer to them in his writing. Emeralds are said to bestow eloquence during speeches on the wearer and bring victory in trials and wars. This tradition began with the Greeks.

That’s an epic name for this green beauty :)

Brittney Bell - December 13, 2012 - 11:05 pm

The name that comes to mind when I see this dress is Sonora. The name Sonora is a character in the movie Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken – which is an all-time favorite of mine. The colors of this dress remind me of the boardwalk in Atlantic City during a the 1930s where a young girl still believed all of her dreams could come true. ….And most of all, wild hearts should never be broken.

Gemini Showers – A pretty epic event, the Geminid Showers happen tonight and experts predict up to 100 meteors per hour can be seen in rural areas. The stars reminded me to look out and the first thing I saw appeared to be a shooting star. The black fabric resembles the night sky and also reminds me of the constellations. The floral print also makes me think of April showers bringing May flowers.

Thats a very good feedback. Wondering what you think of its implication on society as a whole though? There are times when things like this begin to have global expansion and frustration. Ill be around soon to check out your response.

Poppies in October

I think is should be called poppies in October
It is a poem by Sylvia Path

Even the sun-clouds this morning cannot manage such skirts.
Nor the woman in the ambulance
Whose red heart blooms through her coat so astoundingly —-

A gift, a love gift
Utterly unasked for
By a sky

Palely and flamily
Igniting its carbon monoxides, by eyes
Dulled to a halt under bowlers.

O my God, what am I
That these late mouths should cry open
In a forest of frost, in a dawn of cornflowers.

Top Eleven

You know what? I couldn’t pick ten so I picked eleven. And I’m certain you’ll understand if you’ve seen this weeks look book. All 53 photographers are amazing and the photos all breathtaking. Ahh, I wish I could choose them all but… Eleven it is.

Like I said, it was sooo tough. We chose based on the word each photographer was given, and the story they told through their photo with it. And also I looked at color and just the beauty of the image. And then we narrowed it down a little, looked at them all again, narrowed it down some more, then we got to 15…and then finally 11. Here they are:

RENEE HINDMAN “DETERMINATION”

ANNMARIE WALKER “THOUGHTFUL”

MONIKA MCSWEENEY “LOYAL”

KATE CALLAHAN “GOOFY”

KRISTI MANGAN “TOLERANT”

MALLORY BUCK “COURAGEOUS”

MEGAN CAMPBELL “CURIOUS”

KELLEY EARHART “SWEET”

LOREE WHEELER “HELPFUL”

MARCY SCHNEIDER HOFFMAN “SOCIABLE”

ANDREA CRABB “WISE”

The top 11 will all receive a $100 Matilda Jane gift card and their photos will be put on our website Friday, December 14th for voting! You, the awesome customers/friends/family, will get to vote by clicking on your favorite photo, clicking vote, and proceeding to checkout. You guys will be responsible for narrowing it down to the top 3, so vote wisely! We will turn voting off on Monday and let you know the top 3 contenders!

So start thinking about your favorites! Tomorrow the voting begins!

LOVE,

SAM

The pictures are all so beautiful, I can’t imagine having to narrow it down to 10 pictures! However, I thought the top 53 were supposed to photograph the dress they were sent…were they not all sent a Sprinkle dress??? Just curious!

Jennifer Shultz - December 13, 2012 - 1:33 pm

They all look like sweet little angels, I’m sure it’s hard but IMO I just don’t know how the picture from Genie Leigh Photography of the little girl on the raft isn’t among the top 10 (or 11) – Congratulations to all who worked so hard! Fun process for sure!

Prencie - December 14, 2012 - 10:50 pm

All wonderful pictures and congrats to those who made the top ten but I must say an obvious winning picture is missing and I can’t express my disappointment enough! Megan Fogals raft pic was grossly missed and deserved to be in the top ten! :(
