The transitional in between


I seem to always like
anything
transitional

I think
the awkward
freshness
appeals to me

When I'm thinking of clothing

Seasonally
I prefer
spring
and fall

Historically
I love
Regency 1810-1820

Now

I prefer Marc Jacobs' Resort line
to the summer collection of 2009
What a surprise!!
its something transitional

I think this designer's collection
is a great example
of more to come
in this century/decade
soft and hard silhouette/textures
put together unexpectedly
and large scale
complicated techniques
done with printed textiles

Winter pebbles

I have noticed that
etsy.com
has gone further than
wonderful crafters

It now
has a large
vintage
community
with
EXTREMELY
EXCELLENT
prices!!!

I grabbed this 1960's hat
from graceantiques

My sister
did my makeup
incredibly perfect
for the following photos

Green macaroonesque hat



1950's sweetheart neck/back with silver cording

Hat, which will be a later ode to the spring 2009 Marc Jacobs line



Hat which completely leaves me speechless



Shoes that also leave me speechless

Powder blue


I love the sound of
"powder blue"
If any product 
was named this 
I would buy it
no matter what it is

this outfit embodies
my love for this name
