à joue contre joue






the blue coat is meant to be this lovely one, by vivetta. I want those little kitty pockets so badly.

it's terribly cold in minneapolis, all i can do is stay inside and dream of the day when kyle says
"honey, we're moving to california!"
but not a gross part of calfornia. a nice part. by the beach and sea lions.

I added a formspring box over there > on my side bar. ask me anything!
it's anonymous.

So cute. Where did you get those tights?

teri seaglass said...

I adore your heart tights! The contrast of yellow and black is really well done. Your embroidery is just precious. And I still can't get over the floaty quality of your photos. Bravo. California? It's super cold here in California right now. Haha.

Wishing you all the best,

Anna said...

Wow I can't believe you got a pair of ripped and opened tights from UO. That's terrible! I hope you get your money back. Thanks for your suggestion but I don't have a UO in my city :(
I will try We Love Colors though!
That blue coat is so cute :)

I adore how you executed the perfume bottle, really well done! And that collection from Vivetta is so adorable, the clothes are such a perfect mix of cuteness and wearability. I also really like your tights from UO

Hi there,

It's good to find another blogger from Minneapolis! I think we are a rare breed. I'm adding you to my blogroll! Keep warm. Annie.

Meg and Brad are the best. I haven't seen them in months. I'm hoping to go up to Chicago and see them sometime soon. I've been trapped in Lawrence lately. It's snowed a ton and has been really, really cold.

My band played with a really good band from Minneapolis named Caroline Smith and the Good Night Sleeps. I'm hoping to play with them in Minneapolis sometime, and then you and Kyle are like totally obligated to come, haha.

Love love love! :)

So cute! Your apartment seems to have lovely aesthetics. You would love Carmel-by-the-Sea, Ca. I live near there! You would also probably love Pacific Grove and, of course, Monteray Bay. Downtown Willow Glen and Palo Alto have lovely houses, too!

stephanie renee said...

Robyn said...

Grace said...

How charming are all of your photos!
I love your embroidery work - it's always seemed to me to be such a fun hobby, but I don't know that I have the patience for such intricate detail.
You, however, handle it quite well!
:]

<3 Grace.
