La Sagrada Familia by Gaudi

I have a few friends who are architects and I have always appreciated their passion for design and their extraordinary work ethic. I am clearly not an architect. While I can appreciate beautiful buildings and I have an ongoing obsession with Victorian architecture (when I'm rich and famous I WILL own a Victorian home in Toronto and Melbourne, respectively), I cannot for the most part get in on their excitement. 

Gaudi is a name that was referred to often when discussing the connection between architecture and fashion but again, I never really jumped on that inspirational bandwagon. That is, of course, until now. Andy over at Style Scrapbook did me a big favour (not personally of course but I'm not discounting the possibility of one day becoming her friend... and no, I'm not a stalker) by taking some amazing snaps inside Gaudi's 'La Sagrada Familia' - an iconic church in Barcelona. She describes its aesthetic as appearing to be "... inside a spaceship meets The Never Ending Story ivory tower." Personally, I'm getting a pretty major 'drenched with sunlight Pans Labyrinth' vibe. I like it....

The Sum Of This Equation Is Delectable...

I have a stash of fabulous imagery stewing away in my 'BLOG' folder for the day when I once again feel the need to share it. Until then, however, here's a scrumptious image supplied by the ever concise and always stylish Scott Schumann over at The Sartorialist will have to tide me/you over.

No one can deny the cyclical nature of the fashion industry when you see this vintage beauty, that's for sure.
