Have a Brilliantly Frightful Candy Filled, Batty Halloween!

I found a photo of myself as Snow White.

Maybe I should be Snow White next year…I’ll need a Prince Charming…and Seven Dwarfs.

I’ll take lots of photos.

Wendy Bevin has been creating quite a stir with her images – most recently with her English Party spread in the November issues of Italian Marie Claire.  Now that her website is up and running you can browse through this and older works from the Jazz singer/fashion photographer.  I love that she’s so inspired by Jazz.  You can hear and see it in her work.  Become a fan on facebook and check out her pretty photo albums.

Pendelton Dear, I want you to meet my dear friend Ceremony.  Opening Ceremony, this is Pendelton.

Alas a beautiful friendship was started.

I’d die for you.

The blanket on my momma’s sofa never looked so good.

Tie me up.  Tie me down.cuffsever since I visited the kiki de montparnasse website, I’ve been obsessed.  everything is so pretty and french.  I’m especially concerned with acquiring the gold handcuffs…to wear as a bracelet of course.

they’re 24K gold-dipped and come with a beautiful key on a long gold chain.

now I just need to save up the $ and justify the purchase.

new statement piece?  actually with the pretty key on a chain, it’s a two for one.

Chocolate sprinkles and pink frosting…I’m making myself crave cake as I post this.

I found this deeeelish hand-knitted scarf when I was visiting family in Albuquerque.  The artist had several adorable options:  popcorn, eggs and toast, cupcakes and hearts.  After several paces around the store I finally decided on the cupcakes.  I’m so happy I did.  Now when it’s freezing out I can stare at my scarf and fantasize about pink cupcakes.

I also found some great Polaroids of myself eating what else?  CAKE.

I think I’ll need to bake something pretty tonight.

SCRAPBOOK | {lula mag blog}

Filed under: cupcakes, flowers and unicorns

the lula scrapbook is helping me get through my day like vitamin c.

or caffeine.

or my headphones.

to have posts that expand on the current issue’s features…I can’t think of anything more satisfying…other than being able to be at several places at once…like the brigitte bardot exhibit or the citizen’s band show in nyc…for now I can fantasize.

Tonight was the last show of The 2009 Au Revoir Simone Japan tour.
We played at the cutest bar in Nagoya and met so many sweet people.
Afterwards, we still felt wide awake, so Annie and I went with our new
friend Yoko to shop at a 24 hour supermarket.

duckie2

My outfit today reminded me of Duckie while I was sitting on the train this morning.  A mash up of a leapoard skirt, Electric silk blue shirt and coral jewelry.  I find myself channeling Duckie’s mix of colors and prints.  So suddenly I had to listen to some Otis Redding.

and then of course I had to find this and watch it.  Cheers to Duckie!

On the same note, I’m loving the mix here…gosh orange is probably a close tie with pink as my fave color.
