wishing for some blonde curls and smokey eyelashes. i adore how chic and romantic this shoot is with it’s sixties style glamour and lightweight summer pieces. it certainly evokes a feeling of femininity.

it’s a funny thing, my obsession with coats in the midst of summer… i suppose i’m just preparing, that’s all. i adore adore adore this photoshoot for glamour uk. the coats are lovely enough as is, but the settings, colors, and styling are just dreamy.

hello, gorgeous! i’ve been pleasantly surprised to come across such strong female roles on my bucket list as of lately, with last week’s mame dennis from auntie mame and this weeks fanny brice from funny girl. streisand gives a top notch performance and really might be at her best in this film (though i have such a strong love for yentl, no judging… haha)
her body language, expressions, range of voice, hair styles, and wardrobe are all fabulous! plus omar sharif (aka- doctor zhivago) is so irresistible and charming.
really now, how can i attempt these hair styles? big loose curls into a bouffant and chunky side swept or braided bangs. and let’s just talk about this fitted black and white number, shall we?
everything about that outfit is a yes. the hair, the big pearl earrings, the black waist belt, the long collar, the ruffled hem.
and did i mention the furs?!?!
i can’t deny how cute babs is. doesn’t every girl want a feathered pink robe or complimenting pixie cut or attractive man to smooch? *sigh* she really does have it all…

it may not be my birthday month, but it’s my birthday within a month. that counts, right? you see, you have to do these blogs early so all of the potential friends and family viewing can start getting ideas together. (i know, i’m terrible!!! but blogging about what i really really want seems way less cocky than telling someone these specific items in person.) *sigh* i realize that some of these items are highly ambitious (ahemmm… #3) but a girl can dream can’t she???

life today consists of daydreaming and planning in the park, the smell of spring blooms getting caught in the breeze, and mornings beginning with dessert tea with words from capote and kerouac. it’s ingredients such as these that make up the recipe for a happy and very much appreciated life.
.1 i can just see myself in this rose bubbly dress from modcloth at summer soirees with a glass of champagne in my hand .2 books about adventure, love, and diamonds fill my thoughts with silly daydreams that i can’t help but smile and become giddy whilst reading, such as truman capote’s breakfast at tiffany’s or jack kerouac’s on the road .3 teas in the morning, noon, and evening… it fills my soul with warmth. may i suggest a green tea jasmine or chocolate mint truffle tea 4. spring blooms of hydrangeas and peonies paint the canvas of spring and fragrant the air with loveliness .5 1960′s french film legend jean-luc godard sends my thoughts soaring with poetic dialogue and witty characters. pierrot le fou and une femme est une femme are amongst favourites .6 somewhat obsessed with coming home and filling the chateau’s aroma with scents of black plums, persimmons, and oakmoss. paddywax’s library collection is a recent favourite as i highly suggest the leo tolstoy and edgar allen poe scents .7 rose glass dining ware has me prepping a guest list for future tea and garden parties filled with scrumptious sweets and the most lovely of company.
