dressing down dilemma.

i have a problem: i want to wear cute outfits more often, but a) i don't get out much and, b) when i do go out it's usually for work where i need to be physical and get dirty.  since as long as i can remember, as soon as i get in the door of my cozy home, i cannot get my bra off or put on sweatpants quickly enough. i just loooovvvvveeeee being comfortable, always have. i envy chic girl about town outfits on pinterest like it's my job, yet most often go to the jeans and t-shirt option when getting dressed myself. i have tons of beautiful clothes that i keep around for special occasions (i do it with underwear and jewellery too), but lately i've been thinking 'if not now, then when?'. i remember in high school i had a week where i planned new outfits for each day, trying to make the most of the clothes i already had; i got compliments galore ;) i think it's time to bust that same move again.

this is what i usually end up in:

i think these thoughts are partly stemming from having seen the Diana Vreeland film the other day. a wonderfully depicted story of an extraordinary woman, who put the fun in fashion. i'm MAD about her, just MAD about her!

let the good times roll...

while the Storm Surfers were screening their film to a thousand plus Americans for the first time at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival last night, on home soil their brilliant movie won best feature documentary at the AACTAs (aussie oscars!!!). happy and proud are words too simple to describe how i'm feeling right now. i'm so pleased for everyone involved i could burst!!!

california dreaming.

it is a very exciting day today because Storm Surfers 3D is premiering in the U.S.A. tonight at the Santa Barbara International film festival. It just so happens that my little sister is interning in hollywood at the moment and she's going to go show her support! i only wish i could be there too to join in on the fun. i'm thinking of the whole team today and wishing them the best possible time in sunny california. if you're in the states, be sure to check out the film when it hits theatres in early june (i will remind you).

more french fair.

a few more photos to add to my paris collection. enjoy!

les vide greniers.

that's what they call their weekend flea markets in paris- vide grenier, meaning 'attic clearance'. these goodies were so special they deserve their own post. my favourite of the markets i moused around at when i was there, was one on avenue trudaine. heaven for blocks and blocks.
*momma: note the hat pins, buttons & perfume collection- i took them all for you.

instagram wallpaper?

the constant creatress (word i just made up and i like it) -justina blakeney- is having a little contest with her followers- to submit personal instagram images that you think would make great wallpaper. i've rarely won an online challenge, but i have fun entering them. here are my submissions that i believe could dress up an interior wall quite nicely thankyouverymuch: what do you think? *clearly i think photos of beautiful trees are the key ;)
