ballet obsession

The past year I have been obsessed with ballet. Making it my personal goal to attend classes and dress like a ballerina when ever possible!!!!!!!! Is this a trend yet? Or one of the future? I arm myself with
-little pink shoes
-tutu skirts
- wrap sweaters
- opaque tights
-high buns
-dark brows
- form fitting black dresses or black anything!
-pink cheeks
-and great posture (yeah right)

I dont think I really ever except bodysuits though. Like leotards , they are a nightmare to go peepee in

Babe of the week #1

French actress and fellow Libra Catherine Devenue!

starting new babe of the week posts. what do ya think?

Some Kind of Wonderful

Just watched this last night. How have I not seen it all the way through after all these years? I cant decide who I have a bigger crush on.
Elias Koteas or Eric Stoltz .......... it is a tough one.

They are both so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The scene where Duncan rips off the top of his desk so him and Keith can compare artwork. Made my heart a flutter

The song playing in the background in Charlie Sexton Beat's so Lonely. I thought it was gonna be good but then could not stomach the whole song. Then I did my research and found out he was only 17 when he was in the video! Now I feel like a bully

Lauren Moffatt

HAS ME GOING GAGA! now that I say gaga I regret it, I think that is lady gaga's fault. Bitch ruined the phrase. Anyways this collection is so yummy! the classic reds and navy's remind me of Marc by Marc 2002. Which was the first collection I fell in love with, and kept pieces that I ebayed , and wear till this very day. The high waisted skirts and cape!!! The sweet pea coat, and awesome sleeved dresses. I will be dreaming of you tonight

if you have the means lo mo mo (thats my nickname for lauren moffatt, since we are totally friends now)

Pasta party

Mondays are usually a day of domesticated bliss for me. I clean, sew, exercise, dance around the house, and cook! I always cook a ton. For the past few Mondays I have dreamed up recipes while working out. This recipe is from this past Monday, It is a mash up of a few favorite things I make. I never measure anything when I cook from my brain. So this is loose. The way cooking should be

You will need a big bowl for mixing
a baking dish
a stock pot
and a frying pan

in the baking dish, at 385. roast a whole package of grape tomato's, tossed in olive oil, rosemary, salt, and pepper. roast for 20 Minn's. let cool slightly. then smash with a fork.

in stock pot bring some water to boil, add salt , olive oil, and a whole package of linguine. during the last 5 Minn's of cook time add a bunch of asparagus , washed and chopped into 1 inch pieces. drain together when pasta in al dente., rinse with cool water

in a frying pan, cook down one sweet onion till soft, with butter and 5 chopped garlic cloves

in a small bowl. juice 3 lemons, and mix with 4 tbs of olive oil

combine all ingredients in large bowl
adding in 2 cups fresh spinach, 1 bunch chopped green onions, 1 package fresh mozzarella, drained and chopped. plus all the salt, pepper, and rosemary you want

this is amazing hot and cold!

All I know is you've got no money

At this moment in time , I have 76.00 in my checking account. Oh dear. This however has never stopped me from having fun. This weekend we had some friends over for pizza and beer, then yesterday Josh taught me how to play Mother on bass! I am addicted! Why did I wait so long to start? I had all the resources at my finger tips for years.
In my poor free time I have also been orgaizing the shit out of everything. Once you move with only what you can fit in your car, you never want to have to much stuff again. It is so freeig having few possesions. I packed a huge bag of clothes to give to my co worker today, and she surprised me with a present as well! A classic navy DKNY blazer!!! Wow wee! This will go splendid with my new dork themed outfits!

This video is sooo good

over the knee socks

I like this look, do not get me wrong. Though it gives me horrible flashbacks from the "clueless era" and having thighs way to fat to pull off this look. The new soft fabrics they are cut from look very snugly, I might just get a pair to sport around the house. I can see gross old men on the street misinterpreting snugly for sexy though

speaking of snugly, how did a picture of Hefner get in here?

Fall MJ

Here are some choice cuts from Marc by Marc fall collection
The good news is most of it is actually wearable! The better news is, is that you could probably get the look for way less at a thrift store. I am dying for this lace blouse! Oh man! With a black skirt and a little cropped coat like that. yeyeyeyeye!
What is with the look on this chicks face in the grey dress? You know they took more they one photo of that look, why would they do that to someone? She must of pissed off who ever picks out the shot.

Here is a video of shopbops shoot
Its very " oh i am so skinny and rich and just prancing around this fucking field here, i hope i dont get bit by a chigger"

William Cotton

I aspire to either
pose for
or live in one of William Cotton's amazing paintings......
they are parfait!

I love how his style reminds me of Manet for some reason, but it is all his own
That he uses models of all sizes (some in this day could almost seem rubenesque , by our anorexic standards)

He was the inspiration for Katy Perry's video for California Gurls....... pretty funny. guess she has good taste

I love you Nars blush! Lets hug!

surprise pour moi!

a early b day gift from my sweetie!!!!!!!!!

weekend wrap up

I spent all day sunday cleaning out our hall closet. What a project! Random pieces of scrap fabric everywhere, Aveda education books, DIY wedding craft supplies ,half made projects, my missing Prince poster, and some serious dust bunnies!
I also made Veggie stuffed cabbage! Or in B's family gwumpki! It took so long to make!!!!!! Then it had to bake for like a 100 years... so long that we ended up eating avacado sammis and saving it for tonight!

With that said I do not feel the least bit guilty about staying in bed till one! I was mostly watching France Gall videos and looking at shoes.... Mainly these girls down here. When you walk 4 miles a day it is amazing how fast you burn through shoes, like literally the soles get holes in them etc. You just have to buy the good ones, and they are usually made in Romantic countrys...... I am lusting after these as my favorite sandals from Spain will not longer be weather appropriate and my little saddle shoes from France are due for a tune up

These are all Topshop!


I am in love with the way this frames are placed, like..... dare i say birds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Would you not love to take a mid day nap in this room
check out a full posting of the sweet quilt over at some girls wander


I think this real movie poster would look amazing next to my bed....... If only we had a bigger space! This sight is amazing if you are in the market to fill some serious space in your home

MUSE du jour

France Gall the french yeye cutie! Practically a niece to Serge Gainesburg, has be my obsession as of late. I will be copy catting her with items already floating my my closet
- sparkle tights
- red beret ( wish it was kelly green)
- stripped jumpers
- and a swing in my step

Do you think drawn on beauty marks are ......... tacky? or totally cute?


This is the song for Baby Birch.
I will never know you.
And at the back of what we've done,
there is that knowledge of you.

I wish we could take every path.
I could spend a hundred years
adoring you.
Yes, I wish we could take every path,
because I hated to close
the door on you.

Do you remember staring,
up at the stars,
so far away in their bulletproof cars?
We heard the rushing, slow intake
of the dark, dark water,
and the engine breaks,
and I said,

How about them engine breaks?
And, if I should die before I wake,
will you keep an eye on Baby Birch?
Because I'd hate to see her
make the same mistakes.

When it was dark,
I called and you came.
When it was dark, I saw shapes.
When I see stars, I feel, in your hand,
and I see stars,
and I reel, again.

Well mercy me. I'll be goddamned.
It's been a long, long time
since I last saw you.
And I have never known the plan.
It's been a long, long time.
How are you?
Your eyes are green. Your hair is gold.
Your hair is black. Your eyes are blue.
I closed the ranks, and I doubled back--
but, you know, I hated to close
the door on you.

We take a walk along the dirty lake.
Hear the goose,
cussing at me over her eggs.
You poor little cousin.
I don't want your dregs
(A little baby fussing all over my legs).

There is a blacksmith,
and there is a shepherd,
and there is a butcher-boy,
and there is a barber, who's cutting
and cutting away at my only joy.
I saw a rabbit,
as slick as a knife,
and as pale as a candlestick,
and I had thought it'd be harder to do,
but I caught her, and skinned her quick:
held her there,
kicking and mewling,
upended, unspooling, unsung and blue;
told her "wherever you go,
little runaway bunny,
I will find you."
And then she ran,
as they're liable to do.

Be at peace, baby, and begone.

Ghost Chairs

On my list of dream furniture is of course the ghost chair. You never have to worry about it matching thats for sure. Though I do not see owning a set anytime in the near future, I would not mind settling for a "ghost" end or even coffee table. They have some pretty decent ones on CB2, though maybe not quite in my price range......

LOOK! It is like you cant even see it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
