This image is of a very tiny vintage snapshot from Saalbach, Austria in 1938. I did not realize until I scanned and enlarged it – that it is an amusingly realistic (and timeless) capture. Unlike the idyllic happy poses generally feigned for photos – you see that Mom is all done with her sons’ nonsense! I am not a mother but imagine I, too, would often have this look on my face. Anyway, this revelation made me laugh. Be extra nice to your mom today!
Way too much to post on this blog and way too little time! Not only am I backlogged with news from winter 2014, I am traveling for the next two weeks and expect to have an influx of inspiration to share from Austria and Germany – even despite the utter lack of snow in these parts. My blogging may be lagging but fortunately my ‘gramming is not. Please follow AlpineStyle56 on Instagram or monitor the feed on the right sidebar of the blog homepage for new images and frequent updates. (Clicking an image in the Instagram blog feed will bring it to full size.) Go check right now! Several updates from Salzburg, Austria. . .
I am curious and a little excited to watch the remake of the The Sound of Music tonight on NBC. Traditionalists can balk all they want but Carrie Underwood certainly has the pipes to fill Maria’s dirndl.
Sadly, this new production will not be filmed on location in and about Salzburg and the Austrian Alps as was the 1965 movie. When in Salzburg, you can’t help but stumble through sites used in the movie. I hadn’t seen the film since childhood and after watching it a couple years ago – was stunned to see how much of the movie could be found in my travel photos.
I have a bit of an addiction to Moncler down, so I just about had a heart attack when I came upon this jacket in the window at Dantendorfer Salzburg. The playful and graphic polka dot pattern is the first thrill; the back peplum hem and intricate sleeve cuff detail take this to a whole other level.
The more low-key Haruka vest is truly more my speed and I would love to add it to my collection.
xxxxxAfter watching Mikaela Shiffrin win the world slalom title in Schladming, I headed to Salzburg to catch my flight home the next morning. Salzburg is one of my favorite places, so I am always happy for an evening stroll around the altstadt to check out the lovely store windows full of alpine inspiration.
