I can’t wait any longer!
The Great Gatsby is out in three weeks and I’m giddy with excitement!
These images in the new Vogue are only adding to my excitement. LOVE this editorial!
Who else is excited for this film?!
After spending an inordinate amount of time on fashion editorial websites last week, I found a fantastic number of drool worthy shoots. This Kate Moss spread is from March.
Taxidermy, lace, flowers, urinals, antique wallpaper, Gothic overtones. This must be what love feels like.

There is a car shop around the corner from my apartment, and it is full of terrible junky cars. While walking by the other day, I happened to find this gem!
It’s the sort of car I wish I could drive, maybe I could get BRAT painted on my Corolla?
I’m wearing high-waisted shorts and a pocket t-shirt, with a beaded collar and mourning locket.
80’s High-waisted shorts, H&M pocket t-shirt, 50’s beaded collar, Victorian mourning locket, H&M sunglasses, handmade alphabet bracelet, men’s watch, H&M heels.
This 70’s skirt was my very first maxi ever, thrifted probably six or seven years ago. I was immediately drawn to the fantastic animal print, I’ve never seen anything like it! The beaded collar was a recent vintage purchase. I love how it adds a new dynamic to a relatively dull blouse. I’m certainly going to be wearing it this summer with t-shirts.

What a beautiful weekend it was! I’ve been dying to wear this dress since I found it thrifting, and the Trenton Avenue Arts Festival was the perfect opportunity. We took these photos in front of a crumbling building across the street from Philadelphia Brewing Co.
I don’t wear many hats, but this straw number is so bright that it’s hard to resist. I also love how long this dress is, I wore my vintage huaraches and you can hardly see them!

This is one of my favorite dresses! It is an adorable 60’s shift dress with a gorgeous lace neckline and cuffs. This little cat friend was my dad’s. He has only one eye and all his fur has rubbed off, but I love him anyway.
My necklace is by Whiting & Davis, an amazing vintage jewelry maker. The earrings I’m wearing are part of a necklace set. They are movable, segmented owls. When I was in Milan I saw the same set at a flea market for over one hundred dollars, I guess I got a good deal here in the states!

This outfit includes some of my favorite accessories! The most obvious of course, is this great lion belt from the 80’s. I used to wear this with everything. Then there is my Shocking Schiaparelli perfume bottle necklace, and you can’t forget the hot pink woven 50’s handbag! I have worn this dress many times, it is made of a beautiful painted silk. It is definitely very versatile for dressier occasions, and it has it’s own crinoline skirt!

I am insanely excited for this exhibition! I have been a fan of Schiaparelli for a long, long time. A favorite necklace in my collection is a bottle of Shocking Schiaparelli on a long gold chain.
Her designs were linked to surrealism and she partnered with Dali and other artists for some of her most memorable designs.
The Lobster Dress.
The Shoe Hat.
I recently watched Terry Gilliam’s 1985 dystopian flick, Brazil, and the main character’s mother is wearing a leopard version of the shoe hat!
Her collaborations with Cocteau. These are so whimsical, I’m drooling!
I will definitely be heading up to New York to see this exhibit as soon as possible!
