I am, fortunately for tomorrow's postings and unfortunately for today's, in the midst of working on some big entries (vintage! vintage!) and a slightly new look for the site (which mostly involves me cursing the computer and e-mailing my brother every 20 minutes begging for some css help. /divs will be the end of me, I'm sure.)
But! I wanted to update with a few cool new things. Yesterday was a doozy for the mail bag:
--I received my eBay-purchased copy of iconic fashion film Qui Etes-Vous Polly Maggoo?. Which I am planning to watch as soon as my computer wears me down completely. It shouldn't be long.
--I also got my very fun new Paul & Joe Target kimono dress. I know there's a lot of debate out there about whether this dress is a hit or miss, but I'm really pleased with it. If only because finally -- unlike all the other Target/Forever 21/Topshop dresses out there that are rather scandalously short on me -- this is a dress that really works for a person who is nearly 6 feet tall (or about 180 cm, depending on your measurement preference), which I what I happen to be. And so, I am truly sorry if it is too long on the rest of you, but I'm rather happy. Look!
(Now, I do think that if you are shorter than 6 feet tall, you could take out some of the length by hemming this to the knee and it will still be very cute.)
And finally! I've been on a bidding rampage on eBay lately for old skeleton keys. I kept losing (who knew there was such a demand for antique keys?) and consequently, I got a little impatient one day and bid on a bunch of keys and so now I have a few too many. Also, I misjudged their size, so they are all somewhat smaller than I was hoping for. Er, whoops.
But my main objective was to string them on skinny ribbons or basic chains to make groovy necklaces. Very old-school latchkey, if you will. I love the result:
Unfortunately, I still have not yet received my very pink September Vogue. Boo.
