Hello lovlies! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones. This year in "sunny and seventy-five" California, it definitely felt like a beach-y christmas. It truly was quite strange because usually it rains therefore making it feel more cozy and Christmas-esque.
This look it quite a contrast to last weeks dark and edgy outfit. I love it! It is so fun, for me at least, to go between the two extremes. I love going gothic and dark but I also simply adore delicacy, sweetness, and total femininity! This look actually reminds me of the spring 2012 Louis Vuitton campaign. If only I was sitting in a cafe with a cute drink (and bag, or course!) in my hand. *sigh*
Just a little extra thought...I just love the novel The Great Gatsby! The way Fitzgerald writes with such lyrical and poetic thought is so beautiful to read. I also saw the movie version this week, and as usual, the book is way better. But it really helped me gain a better understanding about the characters, the way they act, and why the rich are so careless in the novel. I also loved the art deco architecture, the fabulous clothes, and the killer soundtrack! Watching the film (and having the words being read out loud) has inspired me to talk more eloquently and to try and increase my vocabulary. How is it working out so far? This whole post is inspired by fancy talk ;). Hopefully this can be one New Years resolution I keep and succeed in...because we all know how those turn out. I also think I may want to re-read the book again...for the third time...because it is just so good! Have you read the novel or seen the film? I would love to know your thoughts on either!
More next week,
