I only went surfing once in my life, but these awesome reversible neoprene suits by Alexandra Cassaniti make me wish I was a full time surfer girl

Equal Rights

Not only do I fully support Gay rights, but I like this shirt from American Apparel because its a play on their Legalize LA t they did a while back.

Free People interview project

Upon cleaning, I came across the project I did for FP when I first interviewed.  It was called La was about a french girl just out of college making her start in the world.  Inspired by some of my muses at the time, like Francoise Hardy in particular.

I mounted many of the images on pages from a vintage copy of Honore de Balzac's La Peau De Chagrin....ironic?maybe now it is.

Hand Did

last night I went to Mew gallery to see a group art show that included my friend, Kris Chau and her beau, Tim Gough.  They are such a talented couple.

i miss scott! he's working the whole weekend.  

We are looking forward to a friend's wedding next weekend at Fonthill in our hometown.

and we are planning a trip to Montreal at the end of June.

Fresh Love...

these photos by hannah & landon are so beautiful...
they tell such a romantic story of their relationship; it makes me feel sentimental for when scott and I started dating...back in a time where we didn't have so much work and school and we would stay up really late and then laze about in bed the next day...

its sunday (and I'm hungry!)

i wish I had a bike...maybe this one

so i could quickly get to the grocery store

to buy the things to make sweet potato pancakes and a BLT

looking forward to talking to my best friend, Sarah, today...
not looking forward to the heaping piles of laundry, vacuuming, and bathroom cleaning...

Becky's TV Television Soulmate

OMG...just like my childhood daydreams.
why did it take me so long to decide to watch this film? I loved it!

Old Muse

They may be old news to some, but I am recently re-obsessed with Lou Doillon. After watching La Science des Reves for the first time, I decided I her half sister, Charlotte Gainsbourg equally as alluring.

finally got around to viewing all the images in Candy Pratts' Fall 09 accessory report.  I am not really an accessory gal, so I only found one thing I really loved, which was this shoe....feel free to flip through all 500 images to figure out who they are by because I can't even remember.  its not even that I love the entire shoe, just the concept of the ultra-soft suede sash thingo.

Miracle Fruit

Other than clothes, my favorite thing is food.  Have you heard about the Miracle Fruit?  I am fucking fascinated and really want to try it.  The thing is, with drugs, I am often too afraid to try them for fear of them changing my consciousness forever...with this berry I would seriously fear it altering my taste buds forever. I guess you never know until you try?

Goals are Good

Our one year anniversary of living in our amazing apartment is closely approaching which makes me sad to think about how undecorated it is. Scott and I are truely such slobs and it really is a shame that we don't put more effort into making it feel like a more permanent space. But since we renewed the lease, my goal is to have have it all decorated by the end of August so I can throw myself a birthday party. Since we are both broke, we'll have to do it recession style. I started putting some special things in the wall in our bedroom....a mixture of my girlie things, photos of us, and few of Scott's 7"s to keep it from looking too feminine. My favorite is the Kodalith Scott made in 9th grade photo class...I still remember it hanging in the hallway of our junior was my favorite one!

Zoe Inspired (if you pronounce it the so called correct way, thats supposed to sound like "so inspired")

Sorry I haven't posted in a while.  I guess I haven't been too inspired lately.  
But the other day I became friends with Rachel Zoe on facebook and have been following her as she dresses people for the Met Gala.  I don't really understand why some people dislike this woman, because I LOVE HER!!!  Anyway, after reading about her getting all excited before and after the event, I got excited too!  I had an event the other night for work, so I whipped up this dress.
I have a wedding to go to in about two weeks and I wanted to make something for it, but I know I don't have time to make it anything amazing, so this was kinda a version of something fancier I might want to wear to the wedding.  
but after thinking how much I love what Rachel Zoe is wearing in her facebook profile pic, I remembered how easy it is to make a caftan.  So, I am thinking I am going to make a dressier version for the wedding.  I'll keep you posted.
