queen's park

These photos were taken with a Yashica film camera, borrowed from Brittany Lucas, who took this set of photos. I'm still playing around with film, and while I like it better as medium than digital, it takes a bit of getting used to. My parents (with some not-so-subtle hints from me) got me this vintage dress for Christmas, and it couldn't be more perfect. Velvet, mini, royal blue and a peter pan collar. The fabric is unbelievably thick, much warmer than expected. Also wearing a vintage purse and my brand new Ferragamos, bought in Palm Beach over winter break. I recently found out they make them in nude patent as well, and I'm not sure I can live without them.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend. Mine was spent for the most part with Jane Austen, working on an essay due next week. I'll probably take a break for the Superbowl, not because I have any interest in football (or sports in general, for that matter) but more because I suppose it's something one just does for the sake of it? I'll probably return to Sense and Sensibility within minutes.

  28. I just stumbled upon your blog and I think it's adorable. And it's great to read about someone who's also from Toronto!

  33. Loving the cute dress - thanks for commenting on my site!

    I agree, I've never really been interested in the Superbowl, but I did manage to watch a few minutes in between studying for my neverending midterms. Loving the traditional film pictures - it's a completely different medium.

  38. I don't understand the point of the Superbowl either, so it's now a joke/tradition of me and my friends to watch the Puppy Bowl. It's a real thing. On Animal Planet. Same time as Superbowl and very weird in a hilarious way. Plus...puppies!

  41. The photos are very nice. Im also in the process of getting used to analog cameras. I just love it. I think I have about 12 analog cameras now. But I also couldnt live without my digital camera. For me both is a great way, depending on what I want to photgraph.
