leave the gun. take the cannoli.

As I write this I'm watching The Godfather with my family. I can't believe I've never seen this movie before, its incredible.
I picked up this Complex Geometries dress while in Montreal a few weeks ago at the most amazing store called Reborn. They have an online shop too, but if you're ever in Montreal I highly recommend stopping by. On top of being super chic, the sales staff were lovely and helpful, I can't say enough good things about my trip there. Also, if you weren't convinced that I was a vampire before, these pictures are proof. I apologize for the blinding whiteness that is my skin.
I've gotten some requests to see more of my puppy Bella, so here she is:

  12. the hair back, the dress, the shoes, the lipstick - it's all so harsh! it's definitely a look though, and it's different from what i've seen you in before...

    from what i've seen complexgeometries only makes black & white, right? i would kill for something like that in mint green or peach

  61. the dress (and you) look absolutely gorgeous! i'm currently trying to convince my mom to get a shiba inu, but i figure if she doesn't agree, i'll just get one of my own when i move out next year. my cats are awesome, but i'm thinking i'm ready for a puppy, despite the copious amounts of hair that they already get on my (mostly black) wardrobe..
