weekend quickie

(Wren boyfriend shirt, Rag&Bone trench, UO jeans, Super sunglasses, and boots from GMarket)

(I carried my new Clare Vivier messenger bag all weekend, it is a perfect size to store all my SF findings. If you haven't checked out her classic soft creations, you really should! She also keeps a great blog.)

With my birthday just a week away, my boyfriend planned a quick weekend getaway. We drove up to SF despite the rainy forecast and had the time of our lives. The weather held up beautifully, we ate almost every meal out of a bag, while walking to another destination, searched around the deserted financial district looking for an open pharmacy, contemplated on peting a sunbathing seal, played antique arcade games, drove down Lombard st., slept to the sound of firecrackers from the Chinese New Year parade, stumbled upon WWI army barracks, and saw just a glimpse of the Gold Gate bridge. I wondered the entire time, if someone lived in San Francisco, why would they ever leave?

A Moment Of Clarity

Today has been all about the anticipation of seeing A Single Man. Ever since I saw the first trailer for this film, I have been dying to see it. I don't know why, I guess it seemed to promise the possibility of those rare moments where you actually connect to something on screen...something that lingers for days after the credits finish rolling. Without sounding like a film critic, I will just say Tom Ford did an amazing job taking you into George's world of loneliness, despire, and helplessness. I haven't really lost anyone close to me, but it is something I think about once a while. Watching Colin Firth brought me to that place. I know this all sounds very unappealing, and perhaps not a great selling tool. I guess I am just never one to turn away from a film of a "depressing" nature, I always find films that mirror our reality much easier to enjoy than...let's say...talking dogs. So, take an afternoon off of Christmas shopping, and go see this breathtaking piece of work. It will make you want to fall in love or just simply kiss your lover a little longer.

Dress me up please!

More often than not, I find myself dressing in boyish clothes these days. Don't judge me, some days a flannel shirt can go a long way. If any designer can change my mind, it would be Fleur Wood. The Australian designer travels around the world to find textiles, and draw her inspiration from Paris and New York. Her pieces are effortlessly feminine and chic. It's as if you got lucky at a flea market and found the most timeless and one of a kind piece. Oh, and it's just bonus that her garments are ethically manufactured, no animal products are used, and a percentage of company profits goes to charities in India.
