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!

Today I feel homesick. It’s not so much that I miss living in France, but I miss afternoons spent watching my mum sewing or cooking. Well, really I miss being 5 years old… And this is all because this morning I was looking at those necklaces from White Owl. It’s just reminded me of times where I could be happy spending hours wearing a curtain as a veil pretending I was getting married to Goldorak.

I’m so tempted to get new frames! I’m not so much into vintage in general but I’d love to try one of those. I used to have a pair of very bright pink glasses, it took a while for people around me to get use to them… I’m not sure how they’d react if was wearing those Cat Eye frames.

I loves Tamar’s Mogendorff”s work. My favourites are the birdhouses and the peacocks. They’re all very charming and poetic, and they’re great inspirations for story telling. I think it would be a perfect gift for my daughter but not sure she’d agree on just looking at them without being able to touch, lick or shuffle them in her mouth. Every objects Tamar creates are are made from linens, Mohair wool, vintage fabrics, tweed, antique embroidery, pashmina and other fabrics. Some of her creations are available here.
