uncommon creatures

...reminding me that I want a wide brimmed hat (like Ann D F08) I hope this collection will be made small enough to fit me- I really love that drapey tattered coat.

bunny bisous

This weekend, my job brought me to Whistler for the weekend. On the way back we stopped across from Shannon Falls where a lot of bunnies reside. We spotted at least 8 in the parking lot alone. They are very friendly too! We brought Santos along and she was flipping out when she saw the bunnies. I'm not even sure she would know what to do if she caught one, but she got very excited when this brown bunny hopped up to us to say hello.

august


Ikea PS August bench

This is the Ikea PS August bench. I love this thing, but damn, why does it need to be so big! It's over 6ft long! Actually the fact that it is so massive is amazing, it just won't fit where I wanted it to go, Ie. our apartment needs to get bigger. The only place it could fit is where our current sofa is right now. It having no back rest, I could just sprawl myself across it and eat bon-bons all day. Not to be I suppose.

whitefish

Peachoo + Krejberg

This "Accordian Vest" by Peachoo + Krejberg is amazing. It simultaneously reminds me of venetian blinds and flaking-apart fish. I would imagine this would be one of the most difficult garments to clean. Maybe it does to some extent, but it would be brilliant if the whole thing folded down flat and compact like a paper fan.

Available in black or white from Anastasia, direct or through farfetch

I understand why a contrasting top was put underneath, but this would look amazing with an all-white outfit. I watched parts of Aeon Flux and The Fifth Element this weekend (along with Lord of the Rings), the two former being some of my favourite costume movies, so I think my reality is skewed a bit right now. It's 2010, where are the flying cars dammit!

love affair


Picture 4

I had these boots for about a month. We were in Brussels at the time and got up really early to take the first train to Paris for the start of the "soldes." I loved them. Their smell, their shape, their colour. I had to have them. I was standing outside the Rick Owens store in Palais Royale clutching my purchase, and it started to snow. It was like a dream. I paraded around hotel rooms in Brussels, Antwerp and Paris in them. Then I got home. Depression set in. I loved these boots but the reality was that I would most likely have very limited opportunities to wear them, living where I live, I thought. So I sold them. I tried to pretend it wasn't hard to do, but it was.

Now, I have these. I just got them in the mail today and they are awesome! Bless the low euro right now! I know I've said this before, but I really really believe in waiting. If you want something enough it will find its way to you. I've waited so long for these particular boots and finally the right time, connections, opportunity and currency rate came along! I know I will get a lot more wear out of these than the ash pull-on boot, but they will always be in my heart.

pretty girls and hardwood floors

I wish that title rhymed... or does it? I don't know anymore. Is it sad that once I have an apartment with herringbone wood floors that my life will be complete? (almost) I want herringbone hardwood floors so badly. That, combined with excessive wall molding and windows that open to a french balcony where I can grow herbs and look over the city of Paris. Yes, I'm a dreamer.

canning jar lights

I love these pendant lights made from Weck asparagus canning jars! (As seen on AT kitchn site) They were made for a pizza restaurant in Seattle.

You can buy them here, but if you're handy I bet they would be a great diy along with some edison-style light bulbs. I looked into the jars and they look pretty cool themselves. You can buy them from Heath Ceramics.

I guess I like glass jars, because I like these jars too! I can't remember where they're from, but I remember they would only ship within GB, so I just saved the pictures. Nice lettering!

obsessions



It's been a while. I haven't felt in a "bloggy" mood lately.
Do you ever get the way where you just want to buy a lot of one thing? Right now I am feeling that way about books, specifically art and fashion books, but I haven't bought anything yet. It's the anticipation with the books. I feel like I'm standing on the edge of a cliff ready to fall in a gorge of books, so to speak. I have a long long list of books and part of me just wants to spend an immense amount of money to buy them all and sit around one weekend and just look at books. But in reality I can't do that, so I'm trying to figure out which ones I want first. Plus moving books, when one eventually moves, is such a pain! It's a very difficult process as you can imagine. I'm being sarcastic, but it's true, it is taking me a lot of time because I'm just like that. I sat in on my brother's University Psychology class today and funny enough, the lecture was actually about decision making and trust- very fitting.
