I love the fabrics and clothes and the girl's faces.
Maybe I should move to Japan.

It's so hard to keep your tights, hose, and thigh highs from ripping all the time! This is the first time I wish I had more langerie, pretty pretty stuff. I need retail therapy. I am tortured every day by the boutiques by my apt.

I love the hair, and the red lipstick and this retro newsie sexpot look... esp the heart breast pockets for V-Day!!! Her site is playing "Bei Mir Bist Du Shein" from the 40's and I see suspenders and just tons of classy, yet sexy looks. LOVE.

Spring/Summer inspos

Obviously ready for Spring, and partying. So lucky it was Nicky's birthday last weekend, Valentine's day this weekend, I have a 4 day weekend, AND I had 2 snow days this week and teacher/parent conferences got rescheduled along with my 3-way meeting with my supervisor. Cha-ching. hehe. Can't wait to go shopping for Spring Break, as reward for this quarter being done. I want that Adidas watch, and some new vans. AH still counting down! More for Summer though...

Cartier Love Bracelet

Somehow, as crazy as this is, I find them romantic.
Thought I'd share since it's February.

In the 1970s, a young Cartier staff designer created a remarkable new item that was to become one of the most desirable accessory ever. He was the late Aldo Cipullo...and the item was the Cartier "Love Bracelet". One particular medieval practice fascinated him: the story that warriors, prior to going off to battle, often "locked up" their wives around the waist with iron "chastity belts" to preserve the fidelity of the their marriage. Cipullo's desire to create a modern-day symbol of a "locked up", committed relationship had led him to the design of a two-piece bracelet that had to be bolted together to encircle the wrist. And thus was born the "Love Bracelet" and its accompanying screwdriver. Cartier management, quickly catching the spirit of the item, launched the product with a startling and unprecedented purchasing policy: customer were not allowed to by a "Love Bracelet" for themselves! The Cartier regulation firmly said that no one was permitted to purchase one for their own wrist! Nicknamed The Slave Bracelet, they were meant to be given to one's true love and then screwed into place for eternity. This is because once it was put on, one (usually) never took it off. The bracelet is composed of 2 C-shaped halves. The 2 C-shaped halves are then put on your wrist and screwed into place by two working screws on each side.

The Book of Eli

Saw this movie last night. Pretty well done. All the movies about the end of the world always seem to be about the earth and it's natural disasters, but this movie talked about human struggle. It made me think a lot. I also loved Mila's style. I guess I've always had a thing for grunge. I'm pretty sick of that proper english, scarves, blouses, jeans, and flats, with that indie twist. puke.

Franklin Conservatory

I want to work there! Art and the tropics... duh. It's meant for me. I think we're going for Valentine's day, I'm applying for an opening, AND I'm pretty sure I want to have my wedding there if it were to be here in Ohio. Also I'm gonna apply in the warmer homelands as well. I'm not even someone who plans that type of stuff, I just love it so much. Especially the orchids. They're my favorite. Here's some settings... hahaha
