Winter Wonderland

Wednesday, December 8, 2010


My friend lent this lovely dress to me. It is vintage with the the most gorgeous hand painted flowers all over.



I handed in my last paper today and tomorrow morning I'm going home to Toronto for a month long visit. Milk Teeths kindly tagged to me to share 7 things about myself...but I did that last week! So heres my list of 7 things Ill be doing when I'm home for the break...

1. skating in our new backyard rink!
2. practicing the harmonica
3. working seasonal staff at club monaco
4. working on a new blog layout. so pumped for this!
5. eating my favorite foods ever - cheese and oysters
6. going on a vintage dress quest
7. playing with my cats Max and Ernst. We have another one named Marcelle but him and I don't really get along. Aren't those cat names so pretentious!?

Are you still in a work/school/christmas crunch? Just make like a kitten and hang in there! xo

I adore that dress! You always look like a Russian princess or something.

awww I love the dress and you look so cute in it
when I look at your hair, sometimes it makes me want to let mine grow

"Foucault," "Baudrillard," "Barthes," and "Zizek" would all be worse. Yours are cute. Those are pretentious... although I'm now having so much fun imagining the cats that would have those names.

So that dress is magic on you. That color, with your hair. Magic.

I need to change my layout.. I actually really love yours as-is, for the record :) but I'm sure you'll do something rad with it.

I'm planning to do #4 too when I get home! Love your dress- and wow, hand-painted flowers!

I'm jealous that you're going home! I'm going to Barcelona again, which will be cool, but I'm a bit sad not to see my family.

I'm also really jealous about the back-yard skating rink; I haven't been on one of those for years! I'm also planning on doing my blog layout over Christmas. Great minds think alike!

You look lovely by the way!

girl I am intimidated by the success/popularity of your blog! remember when it was just us little munchkins expressing love for each other? this is so wonderful for you though! a. kitten is great. b. CAT NAMES SO GOOD. b. you get more and more nice to look at every day, I swear it.

Too bad we didn't cross paths in the end of semester slump BUT when we come back fresh-faced and stress-free in Jan, I am making a one-on-one date with Jenny from the Blog.... ya I went there.

Okay, first of all, I love that dress!

Secondly, good for you for going home for a good stretch of time! Sounds nice and relaxing.

And lastly, a skating rink?? Is that common where you grew up? I'm from Florida so we had pools, which seems totally normal. But a skating rink? I am in awe! Can you please post photos?
