Balloons balloons.

Searching through magazines, old editorials, and blogs I noticed a trend of balloons as a prop! They always look brilliant, and add a real sense of fun! 
I came across editorials featuring balloons of Kate Moss and Coco Rocha from Vogue Nippon Aug 08, Audrey Hepburn from 1957 Funny face, and the infamous Christian Dior perfume advert for ' Miss Dior Cherie'- all of which are sensational. 


While in Barcelona I captured a bunch of balloons blowing in the wind that looked so vivid against the bright blue sky.


Veronica of The Haute Pursuit very kindly allowed me to use her striking birthday balloon shot for this post- Many many thanks!( if you haven't visited you really should!)


Out for a spot of shopping I fell in love with this mannequin in Selfridges holding a ton of shiny red balloons looking so fabulous.
I hope you enjoy this collection as much as me!  Katie.xx

  1. i've noticed that too! i think it's because balloons are associated with fun, cheerful things and spring is all about that. everything blossoms up and you find your inner child. or the advertisers hope so :D

  3. So funny when I was on my lunch break Friday a man walked past me selling foil hellium balloons and I thought that would make a great blog picture.

    My main memory of balloons is SJP in Sex and the City in the cute pink dress. I can see what your next outfit post will be.

    Lost out on the jumper btw :(

  4. Balloons just remind me of birthdays and good times :)
    Also, my friend suffers from globophobia - a fear of balloons. Poor her :(

  15. Great post!

    Thanks for your latest comment, I have too say that I'm very happy with every single thing I found! The hand harness things were all over in Antwerp, I think we'll have them here in the Netherlands too.. If you can't find them over there I could buy it for you and ship it? Let me know! I don't know if it's from the aids collaboration to be honest, I didn't saw anything else as I would love to get some other things from that collection! xx
