It's Friday and thus, it feels like the perfect day to talk Favorites. Specifically, we're going to talk about your favorite prints that are (unfortunately) Sold Out; and, I'm going to talk about some of my favorite prints to suggest as alternatives. Who knows...you might just find something you like better!
This crowd pleaser was part of my first installment of the series, La Dolce Vita. I totally understand why it has done so well as it transports you straight to the Isle of Capri. Looking at it now, I can literally hear myself answering "Sí" to an Aperol Spritz. But, wait! Since releasing this image in 2013, I have traveled back to Italy (twice) and released a follow-up installment of La Dolce Vita, as well as dug into the archives to bring you excellent alternatives. Sit with your besties in Three Chairs, La Fontelina, capture a moment before making the decline on La Fontelina Umbrellas, Capri, or find a little bit of Q time with Two Umbrellas, Capri.
Another option, of course, is to fill your walls with La Fontelina, Capri Diptych...just a thought ;)
Llamas Black & White Balloons from the Far Far Away series, is by far the one we get called about the most! I get it, too...just look at those cute llama faces! Don't despair, though, if this is one of your favorites. Although, it's sold out in the print version, we've found new ways to incorporate it into your daily getaway with the acrylic tray and iPhone case.
Or, maybe just spend a little time with the entire Far Far Away series, as it's not just about llamas with balllons. The salt flats of Bolivia offer such a contrasting background, that I'm sure you'll be just as entranced as I was while shooting this series.
Dawn from my Prada Marfa series, isn't completely sold out. It is, however, only available in a size small. So, if you were hoping for a medium or a large, I would recommend the (somewhat) newly released Sunrise. It offers a different point of view from Dawn as it was shot at an angle rather than direct on. Personally, I really love the feeling it conjures. It's as if you're approaching this fashionable mirage in the distance, don't you think?
Similar to Dawn, this print isn't technically sold out. Instead, it's a lot like Llamas White Balloons, as there are literally only 12 left...in large. I will always love this print and its entire series, Art Deco Miami and encourage you all to take a deeper look, if this is one of your favorites. My new series, Italian Geometric, has a similar color pallette as Art Deco Miami, so definitely take a look there, too. Another option, too would be the umbrella that was inspired by it, The Pink & White.
And, there you have it! Well, not completely, as there are other Sold Out prints, so I'm going to make this an on-going post series. I know it can be a bummer to not get what you want, but I also am a firm believer that there's always something great, just a click away. Stay tuned!
