In the Mood for Love

I had such an awesome birthday today. We decided to go to an estate sale today but never actually made it because we found this wonderful little granny thrift store in the suburbs and stayed too long. That is where I got this necklace that matches my outfit perfectly for $4. We also went to a kids' secondhand shop and that is where Bea got her outfit for the shoot. Still haven't had dinner yet but it is from my favorite takeout joint and Alaric got a peanut butter chocolate pie and coconut ice cream for dessert. Sounds like an interesting combo. I adore cheong sams and wish I could  wear them every day like in my favorite movie by Wong Kar-Wai, In the Mood for Love. It is such a gorgeous movie although a bit sad.
Bea is wearing:
dress: Once upon a Child
Lisa is wearing:
dress: second hand shop
necklace:granny thrift store
Alaric is wearing:
blazer,shirt,pants and tie thrifted
shoes:gift from Dubai


  1. What a stylish family you all are! I love your dress and necklace and Bea's peter pan collar. That movie was so beautiful...I just saw it last year and was so blown away by the mood it set through the visuals and music and the fabulous vintage clothing. Happy Birthday! It sounds wonderful and I can't wait to hear how the peanut butter chocolate pie and cocanut iced cream combo turned out.
