Will work for candy

Hello dolls! Hope all is well. As you know, this week is Halloween week! If you haven't already been inundated with Halloween costume ideas for each party you're invited to (because apparently this Halloween is 5 nights of partying? Ugh, Wednesday holidays...). 

So, just in case you need some last minute costume ideas, this year I've taken to inspiration of the miniature sort. Honestly, I'm tired of the slutty girl outfits. WE CAN BE MORE ORIGINAL LADIES! So in this vein of thinking, I've taken to looking at costume ideas that creative mothers make for their children. No slut allowed, but so original, cute, and simple (some of them, anyway). I, personally, borrowed ideas from the French boy in the second picture. So fun. Plus, I got to walk around with a wine bottle all night, so it was practical as well as comfortable.

Hopefully you enjoy your creative costumes as much as I did.

Happy Halloween!

Heavy Prints for Party Girls

The autumn winds have arrived! We've finally gotten a little cool weather around here in Los Angeles and this spread from Vogue China really makes me want to enjoy heavy fabrics and gorgeous prints. This whole color scheme is outta control. Total pretty girl clothes. The blue dress? I mean, quit it.

You learn, and learn.

This is touching. This short film by Rob Chiu shows the beginning and end as it happens in far too many relationships. Hope it speaks to you too.

Soaking Up The Last Bit of SUN

Summer's almost gone. For now, I'll soak up as much as I can.

Don't you love when you find a new band that imitates the mood your life is in? My sister actually got me acquainted with this band--honestly, she acquaints me with most of the new bands I know--and they're really great. They're The Civil Wars meets Mumford and Sons, two bands that I truly love.

I present to you--The Lumineers. Enjoy.
