The Photography of Ozlem Haluk

Something in the photography of Ozlem Haluk (AmelieAPoulain on Etsy) struck a personal note with me instantly. Haluk describes her photography as "whimsically experimental".

These images remind me of some of the private and quirky aspects of my relationship with myself, and the titles add to that view.

Aren't they beautiful, and possibly a little self-reflective for most of us?
I love them.


Night and day

Perhaps perhaps perhaps

Floating on flowers

Loneliness, is such a waste of time

Little white lies

Milk and honey

I'd like to change

You can find Miss Haluk on her website, on flickr, and on etsy.

Gold and Grey

Sooo happy with this gold pencil skirt I recently came across while out thrifting. Initially, I thought of selling it in the shop, but when I tried it on and saw how it fit like a glove, I decided it had to be kept.

I'm still in the very long process of learning how to accessorize, (will likely be a life-long process for me) but one of my favorite accessories right now is that shiny little gold heart necklace. It's so cute.

I should have taken a better picture of that handbag, also thrifted. It has a map on both sides. So neat!

wait, lemme fix my hair ;)

High waist pencil skirts can sometimes have a very nice way of flattering the tummy area, a part of the body I currently struggle with, truth be told.

♥ ooh, shiny ♥

Cute black slingback wedges, thrifted.
Best feeling to find cute shoes in my size, it seems rare that I do.

I've always loved the feminine appeal of pencil skirts. Constantly on the look out for 'em.

The little grey t-shirt is paper thin and also thrifted. Don't you love those
incredibly butter soft thin cotton shirts for spring and summer?
I wasn't so sure how it would go with the skirt, but I liked how it made the
outfit feel very casual overall.

Color me Bright

A very colorful shop update for a Monday morning makes for a good way to put a smile on my face!

I love bright hues, and rarely will a week go by when I don't list something that really pops out in the shop. This week it has to be that first dress by Oleg Cassini. It's a sparkly dream, fully beaded and sequined, and the best part might quite possibly be the deep backline.

More bright beauties coming to the shop this week. Stay Tuned.

Classic Car Dreams and 2nd Date Details

I am a girl who loves vintage dresses.
I've never given much thought to vintage cars.
But while on date?/hangout #2 with that
cute new bearded young man in my life,
I found myself falling in love with these incredibly cool old vehicles
while we were visiting the car museum on Thursday evening.
Eye candy for classic car lovers!

Hello, Gorgeous. . . I'd love to be driving you.

This one's from 1974. Soooooooo Cool.
OLD car dealership sale signs.

The Hudson Hornet, thought this one below was quite patriotic.
Look at the list prices on these vehicles!
Can you imagine paying that TODAY for one?
"Keep dreamin, Jessica."

It was neat to see the old factory uniforms.

As you can see, I was especially attracted to the shiny red vehicles.

This bike from the late 1800s was hanging from the ceiling.

After the museum, my man friend and I did some adventurin' around the town & took some pics.
Don't you love adventurin'?

This building had a terribly bad fire recently, and it's in the process of being restored.
Wished I could have gone inside the fence to see what it looked like from the inside out.

Images from the park. . .

"open your eyes" to the beauty around you. . .
Touching tops of trees. ;) I want to climb one this spring / summer.
Do any of YOU still climb trees?
I like boys who appreciate nature.

nice sign, just what I was looking for. ;)
Ended the evening with a fun little trip to the costume shop,
after all Cinco de Mayo is coming up in only a few days!

Felt like I was a part of the Dukes of Hazard with this hat on.

This one's even cooler.

Looking forward to more adventurin' now that the weather is nice.
What I'd realllly love to do is take a spontaneous road trip one day soon.
hmm. . . we'll see.

Hope you're all enjoying your Sunday!
