I had never heard of this brand, but I happened upon a shop on the rue Sherbrooke in Montreal after a conference I was there for this week. It was gorgeous. Great muted colours and shapes and textures but my GOD the prices! Never, ever, ever will I be able to afford such things.
Also, I've decided that even if I could, there is reasonable limit. I can't imagine spending more than three or four hundred on a bag and the same for shoes, even if they are hand-made in Italy. I'm not willing to pay for names any more. BAH.
That being said, I bet you a $600 Brunello Cucinelli scarf that I change my tune within a month.
I've been enjoying Andre Jordan's doodles on Margaret Roach's A Way to Garden blog, such as the one below. They are cute and funny, sometimes a little sad, and just the sort of thing I like.
Today I finally went to his own site, a beautiful revolution and my GOD! So funny! He's even written a book!
Ha! No, but HA!
I took these photos at the baby shower for my friend April. These two sisters were so cute and so well dressed AND so well behaved. I couldn't get enough of them.
I played around on picnik.com last night. The first photo, I lomoized and 1960s-ized:
The second, I polaroid-ized:
How am I supposed to resist the obsessive urge to paint the coach house in Benjamin Moore's Marscapone when I see pictures like this? Can I register for 2 gallons of paint?
1. Rachel McAdams' waves in the Marie Claire story (new front runner for wedding hair);
2. Gardening (this is our garden last year and I'm determined to make this the BEST YEAR EVER in the garden);
3. This chapeau... perfect for gardening if I could justify the price;
I just did some internet shopping... it was coming on for a few days as I've been home sick and feeling sorry for myself. I found Vintage Rose Clothing via my fave of late, Jane.
So often vintage clothing is teeny tiny. I'm not short and I'm not skinny and it seems people in the 50s and 60s were one or the either of these most of the time. I'd loooove to get some of the things from Liebemarlene Vintage for instance, but they're just not in my size.
This morning, though, I happened upon some cute things that I can wear this summer that will actually fit (I hope).
This 1950s day dress should get a lot of play on weekdays. The skirt even looks like it'll be cycling-conducive:
and this loose cotton sundress is all I need for weekends:
Aside from these sandals, which I am severely coveting....
Must be strong....
