separated at birth.


it’s been a very long while since i’ve posted a separated at birth, but i’ve had several hints that they’ve been missed and that’s so nice to hear. i love putting these together — they’re challenging and they take some time, but i get a lot of creative pleasure from the process. so, here you go — we’re celebrating separated at birth once again — i hope you enjoy.

    Elegant and cool, great feature!

  2. That must taken you much time, but the result is rewarding indeed. My favorite is the Newton’s one. I feel a match due to my curly hair. Also curly hair can look like a bird’s nest too. That a hint for a future “separated at birth” ;)

    I love these.

    I had a discussion with a friend recently about Mick Jagger. It’s subjective, but I maintain that Mick was really appealing when he was young (my pal disagrees). I think that picture you posted here might prove my point though.

    I glanced at my screen without reading the title and had a little intake of breath! I knew it had to be a Separated at Birth post. What a beautiful collection. I particularly love the Anjelica Houston and Design Sponge separated at birth. The lines of the pillows remind me of Angelica’s personality. Thank you!

  10. victoria says:

    THANKS for the warm welcome back. I will be doing these as a regular feature for sure. I’ve missed doing them. :)

    Why does Mick look so perfectly hot in every picture? He is the epitome of cool.

  12. Nashvilledeb says:

    Love, love, love Separated at Birth and boy, have it missed it too! You read my mind Victoria!

    You are so good at this. I mean really good. You would make a great magazine editor but better than that, what these separated at birth’ really conjure is not a separation per-day but this “subliminal-connection” where we get to connect the dots. So you are more of a seer really when you do these! Love them.

  14. Melanie says:

    YES! I love these. They’re so creative and so much fun.

  15. Latrina says:

    I love this column! So clever… and always dead-on, too. :)

    How did the idea for such a unique column originate??

  16. look see says:

    Oh I love this series so much! Really chuffed to see it’s back! :)

  17. Est Magazine says:

    Very funny post. Sometimes these things are so obvious but it takes another to point it out.

  18. Hooray, I’m so glad this column was reborn!

  19. GOSIA says:
