TreasuresUntold


A place for the gathering of any number of things that bring me joy. These usually fall into categories like design, art, food, music travel, and photography.

From Gastroposter Sara Verk:

Congratulations on “Mission 100” Gastropost!! I have chosen my mission to be “Buy Local”. In Ontario we have a plethora of local growers, farmers and food producers growing and delivering food, offering organic farming and sustainable farming practices. The idea of farm-to-table evokes the thought of freshly picked food, farmers markets, dirt-laden carrot bunches, warm sunny days, and food that tastes good. Why not buy top-quality farm-fresh products directly from the person who produced them? Take them home and make the best salad you have ever eaten #thenext100 #gastropost


I second this motion! Much of what I cook with is grown on my own farm :) or from neighboring farms and farmer’s markets….

mylonelyvalentine asked: Hi! I have this major problem with my eyeliner. I spend like half and hour trying to make it PERFECT like, FLAWLESS, the wing, everything. But the issue is that i have oily skin, so it ends up smudging. I tried this MAC eyeliner, that is really good, but it's starting to lose it's power.. Do you have any idea of what could i do to make it better or what eyeliner should i buy next? Thanks!

I understand the struggle! Would highly recommend the Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Eyeliner it seems to last the best :)

Left Evening dress:
Christian Dior 
1957
This dress was designed by Christian Dior (1905-57) in 1957, the year of his death. It was commissioned by the Baroness Alain de Rothschild to wear for the state visit of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip to Paris in April 1957. Many grand events were held during the visit, such as dinners at the Louvre, Versailles and the Elysée Palace, and also visits to the opera and races.
Middle Evening Dress:
Balmain 
1957
Lady Gladwyn was the wife of the British Ambassador to Paris from 1954 to 1960. She hosted the state visit of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip at the Embassy in April 1957, and invited her great friend Diana Cooper to attend the dinner held at the British Embassy on Tuesday 9 April, at which this dress was probably worn. It was designed by Pierre Balmain (1914-82), and the bodice features the appliqué technique favoured by him.
Right Evening Dress:
Jacques Fath
1957
While the dress’s surface is a soft, delicate lace, in contrast the underpinnings are highly structured: its petticoat features a boned bodice and a crinoline skirt. The pale violet colour and two-tiered skirt suggest a romantic view of women’s fashion.
