she was a hip, hip, hip lady, man

Hey Loves
This weekend I went to Montreal. These pictures were taken walking home in the early, early morning on Saturday. I found the rose in the bar, all fancily wrapped up and took it. Probably killed some guys game who was planning to give it to a lady friend. Oh well.

I opened my suitcase, only to realize that other than a pair of jeans, I'd packed only men's clothing. Chris and I spent the weekend drinking, sleeping in, hitting up kitschy diners for breakfast, dragging Christopher all over the city to shop (visiting many stores that you guys recommended, thank you SO much), walking till my feet were bleeding, eating incredible Lime-Citron Tarte, wearing silly sunglasses, watching hippies in the park, and falling in love with Milla Jovovich and Matthew McConaughey in Dazed and Confused, (though I'm partial to Slater and his revelations).
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend too! LOVE.

p.s. A while ago I got an email from the lovely Maria over at Chicisimo asking if she could feature some of my looks occasionally. Well, now Chicisimo has a brand new look. It's an awesome site for inspiration, and allows positive commenting only, so check it out!

  8. Love this!!
    Oh my gosh Dazed and Confused--CLASSIC. I loved Jason London as Pink & oh yeah, Slater was the best everr. I love the whole hazing part, its hilarious. My mom became a senior or entered high school (I forget which one...) that same year it was set, and I asked her if she did any of this stuff... She said was in Catholic school, so no. lol And wow I didn't even realize Milla was in this!!

  29. I love looking at Milla in this, but she only has like two lines unfortunately. But I love her look! Slater's lines definately made the movie. I mean it would still be an amazing movie if he wasn't in it, but his character really makes it a favorite. "For sure George toked weed..." And Matthew McConaughey's lines are sooo good too. Oh I could go on and on. Obviously haha

  30. i love how you mix all of those pieces and come out looking chic!
