In monochrome

So this is basically how my Louise Brooks outfit turned out. 
 Unfortunately, I didn't get the best of photos.
 I wore this 1920's wool swimsuit and silver mary janes and painted myself to look like I was in black and white, but most people thought I was just dead or a zombie.
 The Pressman was a director, but everyone thought he was Max Fisher from Rushmore.
Oh, and this sweater made a great addition to the outfit later on.

Scary Apples!

Just made these scary candy apples! Found here. I've been obsessed with candy/caramel making lately. At least I used a candy thermometer this time. :)

Spoiling My Dinner

I just picked up my bag from the tell tale preserve company
It comes in this burlap sack with a letterpress tag attached
It is full of delicious gourmet treats
like salted caramel nib pound cake and fig-chocolate sangria jam
I really make too much of this kind of thing myself at home to indulge in this each month. But I'm feeling a bit indulgent as I prepare to leave my twenties behind and I thought it was a nice treat just this once.

An Early Celebration

How is it possible that, until last weekend, I never knew what an amazing show the Flaming Lips put on?
Thanks Meghan for the amazing early birthday gift. What a perfect night.

It seems to be coming together

 My costume has been coming together quite nicely, piece by piece, over the last couple of weeks.

I found the shoes and vintage wool swimsuit on etsy and was so excited to find this rhinestone headpiece and matching purse at the Alameda Flea this past Sunday.

I think I have just about everything I need to transform myself into a silent film starlet for the evening. 

Now, to figure out the makeup...

Scenes from lately

Finished the black wall!

Got my hair done.

Had a perfect meal.

Went bike shopping.

I fell in love with a girl named Stella

Isn't she a beauty?
I thought she would be mine
but someone got her first
and it broke my heart a little. maybe even a lot.
