every time i watch amelie, it makes me appreciate things so much more and find everything beautiful. i think it's a good idea to watch it when you're feeling down or are generally unimpressed by your surroundings. of course, it's a good idea to watch amelie at any time. i hadn't watched it in about 6 months, until last night, and now my love for small pleasures in life is renewed! (no i am not exaggerating, the film really does have that power)
i need these shoes:
from this place. they're jeffrey campbell.
also, look what i got in the mail! my latest purchases:
the sartorialist. it's such a lovely book, with almost no words, just hundreds of scott's (best) pictures. i know i'll keep going back to that whenever i need outfit inspiration.
my new shoes which i will be wearing nonstop from now until next summer. i wore them for four hours today and although my feet are dead, i felt REALLY great wearing them.
and the big pink bow i talked about. it's a wonderful color and really soft and very...me.
today my brother auditioned for the kim dawson model search. this contest has produced models such as erin wasson and ali michael (whom i saw there!), and is really a big deal here in dallas. haha. unlike me, nathan is 5'11" and skiiinny, so we told him to go ahead and apply. we'll see if he makes it, but there's always next year, and i do think he has a chance! anyway, it was pretty fun, and considering that's probably the closest i'm ever gonna get to being involved with the fashion business, it was cool. oh, and i wore the wedges above to this thing, so that i could fit in with all the 5'8" girls there (i'm 5'5"). haha.
i have no idea where this picture came from or why it says "coming soon...", but i love it. it reminds me of palm springs. i've been wanting to go back there recently, but only for the ace hotel. if you're ever in palm springs, stay there. i don't care if all you can afford is a car to sleep in, GO. it's amazing. and the food is even better. perfect for a hangover cure!!
i adore this girl's outfit. it's lovely. from style bubble.
i saw bat for lashes the other night. they were GREAT and extremely talented. i was reminded how much i love natasha khan. not that i needed reminding or anything.
finally, brooke gave me an award!!
yay, i'm so very happy.
i'm going to pass on the award to ginny of drink some gin. she's really, really cool.
