Girl With The Flower

This is Zoe. I first saw her on the front page of Etsy, and developed an instant girl crush when I visited her colorful shop, GirlWithTheFlower.

I love those bright flowery hair pieces & bold lipstick hues! The first creation with the bird below is my absolute favorite. Major WANT. 

You can find more of this spunky gal on Twitter, Etsy, and Blogger.

Marilyn and MAYBE You

Most often, I like to channel my inner Joan Jett or Kate Pierson, (2 of many fashion idols) but after watching the Marilyn movie, I found myself more curious than ever about the icon's sense of style.

With a little imagination, (and some red lipstick, fabulous mascara, and an amazing hair stylist) these dresses will help you channel your inner Marilyn! What's more, all of these vintage pieces are on Etsy! Thank me later, darlings. xo

P.s. That sexy little metallic gold number is only $50!! Please someone grab it up before I'm tempted to!


You, perhaps?

Film Festival, 50 years!

Of the few nights that I make it a point to go out during the year, opening night of the film festival makes the top of the list! This was a pretty special year because it marked the festival's 50th anniversary. Dressing up is a must for the first night, and you better believe it's one of my favorite parts of the celebration! There's also an amazing spread of hors d'oeuvres and what seems to be an endless well of flowing champagne. Of course I took advantage of these things. ;) I wanted to snap many photos of the marvelous outfits of the night, but time was limited, and I was lucky enough that my friend was able to snap one of the beaded 1920's dress I'd been holding onto for the evening. (sorry so grainy, it was taken on instagram). Sooo many compliments on that dress! I was utterly delighted to talk vintage with other fashion lovin' gals there!

1 of many super neat installations around the theater.
I'm not a film maker by any means, but I did have digital video classes some years ago and enjoyed making little movies a great deal. I would LOVE to get back into it one day, when time allows. (we'll see!)

The gorgeous Michigan Theater, downtown Ann Arbor.
Djs for the night
My favorite film of all was Irma, you can read about it here. It ended up getting an award too!

The place was packed!

My dress!

Does your town/city have a film festival? Do you go? I wanna hear about it! The best one I've ever been to was the Montreal World Film Fest, can't wait to go back one day!
