she used to know who she was

The skirt or the dress- which one should I get? I'm leaning towards the dress, but then I guess I always do...

Actually my boy just leaned over and told me that the dress looked like an '80s Jackson Pollack painting had exploded over one breast, so I guess that solves that...

who is the beauty...who the beast

If you couldn't guess by my name, I love cats- live for them, basically. These photos from Italian Vogue are pretty much what my life at home feels like- me, swanning around in way too fancy dresses with cats all around me, and all in technicolour. I'll post some photos next week for a comparison- even my boyfriend saw the similarity, especially in the kitchen photo.

love is a word that some entertain

Pretty dress, pretty colour...

One day we were sitting and wondering where it's at

I love apartments (one only needs to look at my work I've been doing for the last few years to see that)- I mean I really, really love them. Sometimes I see one that just makes me so jealous- like this one. I think I'm mostly envious of the fact that they have 3,700 sq feet in Manhattan (!?!), but I also love the fact that it is all just found pieces.

I find the bedroom pretty boring, but I like the oval ceiling.

My dream is to have a library at home- a proper library with floor to ceiling wood shelves and a big comfy sofa. At the moment I have most of my books at my studio, which I find pretty annoying as I'm always thinking of things I want to check when I'm at home, in the middle of doing something else.

I love the windowsill garden, too- that is definitely one of my projects for the summer.

My boyfriend and I are going upstate for a wedding this weekend and I seriously cannot wait- I haven't left the city since December and I'm starting to really hate it. I love it upstate- just look how beautiful it is!

More Sharing, More Love

I've decided to set up an Etsy shop for my vintage patterns, Strawberry Minou's- please go check it out! I only have a few up so far but they are all great designs and I will be adding more every day.

Polka Dot Love

I'm obsessed with this swimsuit- the photo isn't the best, but it's just the most perfect little retro suit... It'll be perfect for playing around in the water when I go to all these random beach weddings this summer...

Passing some love along...

I'm selling some of my vintage patterns on Ebay at the moment so I just want to share them with you! I'm adding more every day... I'm going to miss them but I just have way, way too many of them. That's the problem with being a collector- you see one thing you love and buy, and pretty soon you have around a thousand and no place to keep them all. I just want them all to find new owners who will love and make them...

I normally don't even like Chanel at all, but I'm loving these photos that Jen from Sleep Deprivations and Stories of My Bullshit Youth posted of the cruise cllection, which was shown the other day in Miami.I adore the sequinned jacket and woven booties- so hot!

I went to see Dolly Parton in concert a few weeks ago and it was seriously amazing- one of the best shows I've ever been to. Her voice is just phenomenal and she's the funniest lady ever. I've always been a huge fan of her- all of her music and her movies. I wish I could be her! Oh, and her rhinestoned clothes!

I want, I want, I want

All Vena Cava
