I guess if there's one good thing about Monkeycat sitting on my pillow, purring up a storm and begging me to get up at 6 in the morning, it's that she led me to this gorgeous campaign by Orla Kiely. Did I really just make a connection between Monkeycat and Orla Kiely? Weird.

Monkey wakes me up like that every morning, but on this particular day I got up and started reading through my twitter timeline. I think there were 197 missed tweets, most of them from people overseas who were awake while I was sleeping, but there was one specific tweet that caught my eye.

I've been waiting for the Venetia Scott photos of the Orla Kiely collection to come out ever since reading a different tweet about it a while back. I waited and waited and even posted about it with a completely different set of Venetia Scott photos a few months ago. And finally the day has come, another Orla Kiely tweet announcing their release.

To say I love them would be an understatement. Orla Kiely has a way of creating the most authentic 60's and 70's scenes with all the beautiful prints and colors she uses, and Venetia Scott is just an unbelievable photographer that really knows how to make a connection with the viewer and her subjects. I just love them both! Seeing these photos actually reminded me of a video I recently watched about the designer. It's the Orla Kiely for Target commercial which I don't remember from back in the day (2007), but I think it tells a lot about the designer.

Agreed, there's a real sense of connection in the photos. They're beautiful but you can believe they're real too. And as for the yellow velvet dress... GAAAH!

I'm very picky when it comes to the 60s and 70s... but you know what? I think you, Chloe, and this ad campaign do it best! Awesome pieces... awesome fabrics... just awesome!

I want that mustard velvet dress. I love the retro style but modern twist her clothes always have, thanks for sharing.

I really love that mustard dress!

I love the lookbook, but most of all I love her NAME. 'Hello, I'm Venetia Scott. Venetia Scott.' I'm not sure if you've read Georgette Heyer but one of her best down-to-earth heroines is called Venetia. Anyway, thanks again for the inspiration, Starr!
