Obessions Du Jour

1. Stars- the sky is immensely beautiful every day I look at it, even in the city, but I still often think of
camping in the desert when I could see the stars so clearly it was magical. We are all stardust after all.
2. Cigarette Holders-I don't smoke everyday but enjoy fine tobacco cigarettes occasionally and recently got gifted a lovely vintage cigarette holder. I've been wanting one for awhile. They are so glamorous and I can't wait to have occasion to use it.
3. Martinis- My new favorite drink is a Hendrick's Dirty Jalepeno Martini. I love the way the glasses look as well. 

4. Fire-We finally had our first fire in our hearth. There is nothing like it on a wintry night.
...the only people for me are the mad ones...that 
burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles
exploding like spiders across stars...(kerouac)

5. Popcorn. There is nothing like making your own popcorn and then eating the whole bowl:)

6.Veronica Lake. I'm very into 1940s hair and makeup lately and she does both so well.

7. Red Dresses- These are definitely on my wish list. It is such a powerful and sensual color.

8.Faux Fur- I just love how luxurious it looks and how warm it is. I do not advocate buying new fur, or leather for that matter.
9. Black Lace. This is a classic that I just can't seem to have enough of lately.
10. Red Lipstick. I love this classic look. Unfortunately I have to be very careful as I have pouty lips and it tends to get on my nose and chin, not a good look:)

Ordinary Life

blouse:vintage gift, jeans, belt and shoes: thrift town
Decided to do an impromptu outfit post. It was a really nice sunny day today. I'm still in love with my 99 cent jeans. Hope everyone had a lovely holiday. That was a long weekend that I am only just recovering from:)

An Outfit Post!

This vest reminds me of something my mother would wear. I thought I would post an outfit where I am dressed very casual, a rare occurrence for me.

I haven't forgotten about my blog. I have been focusing on building my art modeling portfolio though. As much as I enjoy taking photos for my blog it is nice to not have to take the photos myself and it is fun to collaborate with fellow artists. Consequently, I'm going to be traveling to the bay area more often in the next month which makes me very happy. I love San Francisco. Tomorrow I'm working with Robert Blackburn in Berkeley doing a film noir 1940s photo shoot.
