Mother thinks the birds are after her

Photos taken from the other day, when the topic of conversation ping-ponged between the 26” elimination of vintage lace required to create a slightly more personalized silhouette, to all the little birds, and from the annoyance of cleaning platform suede to the unusual map of coffee stains on jagged sidewalks. It's not exactly conducive to any real amount of excitement, but you gotta love the completely arbitrary dialogue flowing between two people waiting (caffeine-starved) at the drive-thru window.

Very special thanks to Jasna for my wicked little spotlight post, to Chris for inviting me to be part of the Fashion Jinx Jeans Feature, to Maria for awesomely believing I was cool enough to be included on Chicisimo, and to everyone who so thoughtfully granted me blog awards... you're incredible!

I love how you have all your pins on your curtains...what a great idea!

Of course, great outfit too!

I love how everything you wear has "trademark" all over it. Amazing.

diane said...

I had to put on my spectacles to see the pins on your curtains better. Pretty impressive display. I do that too, in my bedroom, but my display is more grunge while yours has a victorian flair.
Love the way the dress and boots balance each other. Also love the tribute to Hitchcock.

Phyllis said...

These photos are delightful ! The shoes and dress are fab and now I really want coffee too!

Anika said...

Oooh bellisima. Such a gorgeous outfit. Love the contrast of the white vintage lace and the black modern platforms. Oh, and the shiny long hair.

And speaking of what electric feel said, there's a thrift store I adore and they always have the best range of wedding dresses. I'm always tempted to buy one and alter it but just can't.

p.s. shop is going slowly....still taking snaps. And being a lazy bugger. You? Cannot wait to see what you've got on offer. Me - LOTS OF SHOES....it's a disease, I swear young lady ;)

Hope you're having a fantastic week.

budget chic said...

The whole outfit is on-point!!! What a great find in that lace dress. I saw this old episode of Rhoda on-line and she was wearing this incredible dress and I have been searching for something similar on etsy.com. Vintage dresses have so many nice extras and details that you can't find in the stores nowadays for a decent price.

Such a gorgeous outfit Bella! Love it love it love it :)
