I am going to...

Well Hull, actually, for a few days. See you soon! And Victoire, I plan to visit you and bring you a few new pieces of jewellery!

(When I was looking for "Greetings from Hull", this picture showed up. I really wish my hometown looked like that!)

I do not own a digital camera

So I am bound to borrow pictures. (Someone outside my window is listening to "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band" sung by chipmunks!? Really?) Here's a glimpse of what's been inspiring me lately...
Much love for this editorial in Lurve, which reminds me of the late 60's

Spending most of my days in the park.

I'm crazy about this t-shirt, sold at Victoire and made by Species by the Thousands. I happen to have the exact same haircut as the girl drawn on the shirt, how awesome would the combination be?

Beautiful collage representing exactly what's been on my mind lately.

Beautiful hair, simple outfit.

Forgotten and Abandoned

Gloria Swanson at the Roxy Theater (New York) 1960.

The Seville Theatre, Montreal

I have this strange fascination for forgotten, abandoned, old beautiful buildings. It must be due to their history, the people who visited them and lived in them. They carry the nostalgia of a past era never to be recovered. I find the destiny of the luxurious early movie theatres particularly tragic and interesting, as they were made to be an impressive architectural experience.

This picture of Gloria Swanson, in the ruins of the Roxy Theater, has the same effect on me as the movie Cinema Paradiso. It shows the end of a way of life and the changes within a form of art which are very touching.

The Seville Theatre was made to be an atmospheric theatre, which means it had a ceiling with shining stars and moving clouds. Can you imagine how impressive that must have been?

Levi's Stripes On His Wings

I'm generally not the kind of person to buy brands unless they've been around for decades and that I have developped some kind of sentimental attachment to them (is that possible?). I think this 70's Levi's add sums up all the reasons to like the brand and to seek after their vintage pieces.

Would he wear Levi's herringbone... on his fins?

Easter disappointment

Did you know Hershey made a ripoff of those delicious Cadbury eggs? You know, the small ones with the crispy shell? Well, I bought them by mistake and they're not as good. Very disappointed.
You know what's not a disappointment? This:

I have this poster at home and kiss it every night... Of course not! But I bet many teenage girls used to, ha!

Another weather post

What's been on my mind lately:
-Beautiful interiors as I'm looking for a new apartment;
-Jasmine iced tea;
-Summer 60's music;
-Cutoff jeans.
Only 25 pages to write and a week and a half of school left! Yayy!
