look but don't touch.

i'm really coveting this lace dress from marc by marc jacobs.


why oh why do i not have a fistful of crisp hundred dollar notes i despair?

jean seberg plus jean jr. plus little j seberg and me.



michelle williams.


et tu emma watson?


they taunt me.

you see, this was me a year and a half ago before The Determined Growing Out.
but my resolve weakens.

double exposures.

tierney gearnon creates a magical parallel reality.


winter, don't go.


pretty in pink.

ah! i really like this flapper style dress. its from perchtmilk on etsy.
i cant stop looking at those the tear drop embroidery bits hanging off the tiers like rain drops.



from sally jane vintage: she doesn't wear them often, but how gorgeous does she look in these?

romper needs home.

wow, this pretty two piece novelty print 40's playsuit is so cute.


from metro retro vintage on etsy.

and again.

i just had a moment of heidi rosenau obsession, and after reading that she is a swing dancer i just had to find out more about her. here's a clip of her dancing with her partner joe. she's so divine.

and here's an article that names her as one of the most stylish new yorkers.
yes she is.


heidi rosenau again.


where can i get a dress like this i lament?

fancy shoes.


from fancy fine.

the one.


love this gingham romper, found at trendy crew.

but while i'm on the topic.


from sally jane vintage. who rocks the itty bitty onesie.


but this might be my favourite - quincy's pretty hen print romper with matching skirt.
oh the jealousy.

from q's daydream. see more of this outfit here.

let's make everything romantic.


the look.

i love clive rundle. i think he's probably one of the most original and imaginative south african fashion designers.

i really like how badly-crazy this editorial from elle SA was scanned in or photographed from the magazine to be posted online... i assume by the man himself. it really adds to the actual shoot somehow.



directed by clint eastwood. genius.
set in the late 20's, and, towards the end, the first half of the 30's. angelina jolie really does look amazing, i'll give her that. such a beautiful film, also so sad. makes me want to take a vacation in the twenties. only a vacation mind, and a shopping trip perhaps. because i like my women's rights. men could be bastards back then.
