There's definitely something in the air right now. It's that funny in between time - the change of seasons - an anticipation for new and exciting things ... I'm being vague - but it's sort of a vague thing .... Does anyone know what I'm talking about? It's subtle - but it's the sort of thing that puts an extra skip in your step and makes you smile a little more, even if there's nothing to smile about.
These pictures are actually from last Saturday, I don't have anything too special to share besides them - so you'll have to excuse my lack of aesthetic interestingness! But, that dress is new and I love it to pieces... I found it in Los Angeles at a weird sort of junky vintage store - it was cheap and in bad condition, but a hot oxy clean bath and some new buttons and now it's just perfect! I've also been rag curling my hair a lot lately.. I've been so inspired by all the pretty early 30s inspired hairstyles in clothing photos that have been popping up on the internet - the loose curls pinned up around the neck! In case anyone wants to try it, I recommend putting the rags in right after you dry your hair and leave them in for about an hour or so - it makes the curls a bit more soft and subtle!
I had a really nice day today, hanging out in my apartment with Meggy and eating fancy lunches and finding a perfect plaid elfkin hooded elf coat at American Rag - and also just getting excited for the weekend in general! I'm going to see Alice in Wonderland tonight and I'm excited and nervous at the same time. The Disney version was a very important part of my childhood and I'm not usually into the dark adaptions of Tim Burton's story-making .... But, I'm keeping an open mind!! And I'm not going to lie, I'm excited for the frivolity of getting a big thing of buttery popcorn and a fountain soda!
Anyway, I better stop rambling and get myself ready to go! I'm wishing everyone lots of beautiful early Spring adventures this weekend!!! And I can't wait to see your photos and share mine, whatever they end up being!
PS I cleaned out my closet yesterday and I have a bunch of things to list, but I think I'll probably get to it tomorrow? I have a few more things to photograph so I think I'll just put it up all at once!
