french girls

loving this post from hair on the brain about french girls:

“French girls grow their hair long because they like how it feels down their back. They don’t give it much thought. Every few years they cut it short for a while, but it grows again.

They have a tube of expensive red lipstick someone gave them once (probably a boy) and they keep it in a dresser drawer. Mostly they forget about it, remembering the perfect crimson shade on lazy days when it’s rainy outside and they put on their mother’s Hermes scarf.

They put on the shoes that are the closest to the door when they leave. And on their way to get cigarettes, they end up up on JAK & JILL or The Sartorialist. But they’ll never know because they only use a vintage typewriter and only to write letters, when they need to.”

how to make an impression

This is helpful.

“Launch your campaign with the most obvious persuader– dotted white silk organza, romantically inclined to the high tiny waist and gauzy full skirt that dances on air…”

“Watch your syntax, know your first editions– in fashion too…”

“For shipshape courtship — white sailing forth at night as a quietly spectacular kind of shirtdress…”

lunch break thrifting

As you can see, I had some luck today. Who says you have to spend hours sifting through rack after rack? I found all this on my lunch break. Score.

currently obsessed with…

peering into other people’s houses from the street at dusk. (imma voyeur at heart.)

wood grain.

stripes. OK,  so this is not so much a current obsession as it is an allthetime obsession.

heirloom chicken. I haven’t had it yet. YET.

freckles.

The New Pornographers.

who’s that girl?

While attending a social media event this morning, I got to thinking again how the online world has seeped into every single part of my life. My job. My relationships. My social life. A creative outlet…a tool for discovery. Which made me wonder further (I was paying attention to the panel, I swear!) if I’d even be the person I am today if it didn’t exist.

This was the first picture I ever uploaded to FB. The birth of the ‘online me’… Would my image be the same if not for my online experiences? I say this because I feel so deeply connected to this form of media vs. TV, magazines, etc.

This is me today. Now, I’ve always been a chameleon of sorts, but how did I get from point A to point B? Thoughts?

You knew I’d slip in a ‘what I wore today’ pic at some point.

funky

I spent most of the day on the couch today, something I never ever do. I’m finally sick. I say finally because I’m surprised I haven’t caught the funk from someone else yet.

I just came across this blog and am insanely jealous of her alteration skills. I have so many vintage pieces that just didn’t fit quite right when I got them home (there’s no dressing room at the stores I go to)…

paris 1962

These photos are from Tom Palombo’s flickr stream, “Paris 1962.”
The story goes that they’re images from Parisian cafés & nightlife in 1962, the very same week Yves St. Laurent’s first collection hit the runway.
