You can never have too many t-shirts. I wish I would wear pretty dresses every single days… but this is real life (at least mine) and this is something I really can’t do. Especially now that it’s getting cold… my need for warmth and comfort is trying to take over my sense of style. But some nice tees from Crywolf (wink, wink hubby) would solve all my very very important problem.

We had a movie night last Saturday: my friends had never seen Cry Baby… a shame really… but now it’s fixed (by the way, if you’ve never seen it’s time to do so). So, inspired by the movie one of my friend has decided to try the third dress on the right for our Christmas party. She’s going to look fabulous, I just can’t wait to see!

We’ve also decided (after the same movie) to try on fake eye lashes… I’m pretty crap at make up in general, so I hope this is not going to be a total disaster.

I love those pictures (especially the one in the middle): cute kids, great clothes by Talc! I know they are a bit of  “Parisian bobo”, but I don’t care, I really like the style!

Sometime (well, most of the time) I think there’s something wrong with me. Tonight I was browsing around this shop and I nearly bought the first dress on the left. The thing is: 1. it is way too cold now to even be dreaming about wearing it 2. The shape of my body is not made to wear anything like this 3. Every time I put on a dress in the morning, I take it off about 10 minutes later… it just never feels right. Tomorrow this will be my challenge: I will wear a dress (yes hubby, for real this time!). Once I’ve done that I’ll need to reward myself and buy a new dress… hehe… clever…


Creature Hoodie October 6, 2009

Rocket World’s Creature Hoodie Sasquatch “Wild Thing” Edition is part bear, part beast, and part Bigfoot. They say it’s perfect for mischief, subversive actions, taking on poachers and corporate greed, communing with nature, urban exploration, and staying cozy… I’d love my man to have one like this… Yes, I like furry men.

It’s a good thing I couldn’t find a retailer selling Vivetta’s item in Dublin or in Ireland. Because if I had, I would already be planning how to get there next Saturday (and right now… I can’t afford more shopping). It’s not my style, but I’m in the mood for something new, or silly. I’m getting bored with myself those days (okay a change of wardrobe is just a quick fix… it won’t solve the real issue… I know that!) … if someone has a cure like an anti-bored-with-yourself potion… shout my way.

The Fall collection from Oeuf is brilliant! The colours are lovely and they don’t make kids looking like they’re out of a Disney movie. And the style is cool but won’t make your child look like a total freak among his peers at day care! Of course I love the Angel sweater… I want to be home now… I miss my little one too much!

I said it before but I’m normally not so much into vintage. This said, I think I am about to change my opinion. I’ve found this fabulous dress on Ooh la la! Vintage and I just love it. So maybe this is just a question of finding the right items. Though if I think about it now, this dress would probably not suit me… I’ve been called chubby this week (my friend Emma is so sweet, isn’t she?) and chubby won’t do well with this dress. But she’s right… I had too many hot dogs this week… and too much eggs and bacon for breakfast… too much food in general. It’s really time for me to leave California and go home!

This shark hoodie is so cute I couldn’t resist posting while being at work!! I especially like the little fin on the back. But because I’m a good girl, it’s gonna be a quick post… back to serious stuff now!
