Learning about Japan in college has made me pretty obsessed with all things Harajuku!
I just love the crazy combination of vibrant colors, immaculate details, fun textures and straight up funky style!
So I was pretty impressed when I stumbled upon photographer Nicoline Patricia Malina and her Harajukuers editorial for Harper's bazaar!
Not only are these fabulous photo's amazing to look at, they'll also be coming in handy for inspiration boards for my Christmas finals in college. Malina has officially shot to the top of my list of favorite photographers and I'm hoping to show  you a lot more of her work in the future!

Cherry Blossom Girls...

I came across the dark, warped and wonderful artwork of Lithuanian, Natalie Shau, whilst researching for my history of costume class. The artist used digital painting programs along with 3D design to create these Anime inspired figures. You lasses know how much I love stuff like this so as you can imagine I was very enchanted and just had to share!

Check out more of Natalie'c collection on her official website here!

..And She's Taking A Drag...

So my lovely new roommate, Katharine Primeau is a photography major and asked me to help her out with a little project last week. Wanting to play around with the slow shutter speed on her camera she asked if she could take pictures of me smoking around our area here in Florence. I thought I'd share with you ladies...

Pretty trippy huh?
What do you think? She certainly gives my crappy Iphone pictures a run for their money!
In case you ladies didn't notice I've changed the name of my blog.. Be Broke Be Stylish Be slightly Boho was just such a long name and I'd been contemplating changing it for a few months now. What do you think?

Clet: Florentine Street Artist...

Just days after my big move to Florence this September, As I was standing at my apartment window having a sneaky cig, I happened to notice that the T Junction sign across the street had a little man tagged on it, giving it the appearance of a crucifix. Amazed I showed my roomies and we giggled over it and applauded the genius teen that happened to get his hands on a permanent marker and come up with such a great idea... 
As it happens, I started to see more tagged street signs everywhere I went, and then the other night whilst on a night out I passed a gallery belonging to the street artist who is responsible for these works: Clet.

The artist has been based in Florence for the last twenty years and has a studio here.
I love that he takes street signs, which although small are always relevant, and makes them into works of art with just a few strokes of his paintbrush (or marker...). These effortless street works are one of the many things that make Florence the artistic and beautiful city it is.

What do you think? Is Clet about to give Banksy a run for his money?
