Actually, I really wish I were not so forgiving.

This is where I surprised Caron with dinner. The Sugar Bowl is the cutest ice cream parlor, located in old town Scottsdale. They serve a million different varieties of ice cream and delicious sandwiches (including tea sandwiches!) I had the most delectable veggie sandwich and for dessert Caron and I shared the brownie buster sunday - the most delicious french vanilla ice cream you will ever taste in your life, a brownie, and of course rainbow sprinkles.
After dinner Caron and I made our way to the Cine-Capri theatre. We saw Confessions of a Shopaholic, which I'm afraid to say was no good. But it was worth it to finally get to the Cine-Capri.
Yesterday I participated in my Day After Valentine's Day tradition. My sister, Hannah and I, trekked to Walgreens and spent a chunk of change on extremely marked down Valentine's candy and an Arizona Peach Tea to wash it all down.
Whatever it is - I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!!! I don't care I'll shout it out on a mountain. This movie totally blew Breakfast at Tiffany's out of the picture. I watch it when I'm sad. I watch it when I'm sick. I watch it when I sketch. I watch it when I feel like doing nothing else. I watch it just because. No matter how many times I've seen it - I still sit mesmerized the entire time taking in everything. I'm still waiting on a better movie to come out. When it does, I'll notify you. It'll be big news.
This has got to be the most awesome skirt I have ever seen. Seriously. I have never witnessed anything like this skirt. This is the kind of design that A) makes me want to go shrivel up in a corner, because, never in a million years would i think of this and B) inspires so much creativity in my head, to the point that I have no idea what to do with it.
Umm...have I mentioned that I love Christian Cota?
I don't even know what to say...
Love the Frida Kahlo headpiece.
Color is a good thing.
This reminds me of one of my mothers vintage prom dresses.
Stærk is another line I am unfamiliar with but so far it is my favorite collection. It was a collection that mixed tough with lady-like accents. Just my cup of tea. I really wish I had this bustier and skirt to wear as I danced to Madonna, circa 1980 of course.
I'm always buying mens t-shirts to wear as dresses, so of course I'm going to love the idea of a men's tuxedo jacket as a dress.
I told you I love me a great jumper. I am 172finity % positive this is the most absolute darling jumper I have ever seen. I need it!
This is my favorite look from the collection. I love the stirrup legging. I love the trench, even though I would have absolutely no where to wear it. Most of all I love the deer antler accent!
I was planning on updating more later on tonight but it's taken me 5 hours to post this with complications and I'm exhausted. I'll be back tomorrow with # 2, valentine's day, and of course more from fashion week!
Chairlift is a 3 piece electronic band from Brooklyn, New York. I first heard them back in September as I was shuffling through my friends iPod as she was off at film school. I instantly fell in love and I spent the rest of the weekend with Sarah dancing to their album Does You Inspire You in her apartment, in the car, on the streets of Hollywood. Everywhere. We could not stop dancing.
"Bruises" is Chairlifts first single off Does You Inspire You, for a reason. Simply put - it's the best song on the album. I guarentee you will fall in love with this song. Now that it is February, I am listening to this song on repeat. It is the perfect love song for someone who has horrible nostalgia, like me. "Bruises" really takes me back to my days on the playground chasing boys (ahem, Brad) around on the playground. The end result? Bruised, grass stained knees and a kiss on the cheek.
"Somewhere Around Here" is a heavenly duet (all the songs are, but this one is just, wow.) It really showcases Caroline's voice, I get chills when I put this on. It's a very soothing song, and I am a highly stressed girl. I just can't stop listening.
"Evident Utensil" is such a quirky fun song! It reminds me of "Bruises" but it I still find it to be a great song. I literally giggled the first time I heard it. "Evident Utensil" really comes in handy when I am dozing off to sleep in my Portfolio Development class. Seeing as how the most "Evident Utensil" is the pencil, it makes drawing that much easier.
I really wish that I knew of Does You Inspire You when I was admist breakup with my last boyfriend. Chairlift shows a more serious side with "Make Up Your Mind," "Don't Give A Damn" and "Ceiling Wax." He couldn't, well, make his mind up and eventually I just had to tell him "Quite frankly, m'dear, I don't give a damn" and then promptly walked out of the room and he never saw me again.
Go dance under the stars or go on an adventure in the desert.
I bought this cd (I'm Wide Awake It's Morning - Bright Eyes) the day it came out when I was a Sophmore in High School. That was it, I was sold. It was the first cd I played in my car when I got my license. It was playing on a rainy day back in March 2007 (I'm not going into details but none-the-less it's an important day in my life.) I played it when I was in love and I played it to get over love. I listened to it on repeat the day I graduated High School. I played it during my first road trip without my parents. I played it on the drive to my first day of College. I have the cd booklet hanging on my inspiration board. And, in case you are not getting how much I love this album, I'll just go ahead and say that not a day goes by when I don't listen to at least one song off the record. It's perfect. I won't go into details about each song (trust me, I started writing and got a bit carried away before I had realized I wrote a novel) but I will say the last time I saw Bright Eyes, the last song they played was "Road To Joy" which coincidentally is also the last song on the album. I stood transfixed on the stage and stayed staring well until the crowd had dispersed. I was trying to comprehend if I had really just witnessed the most spectacular ending to any show I have ever attended. It was a magical feeling. At the very same time though, I was waiting to die. It was that good. And, even though I broke curfew that night (in consequence, I got grounded for a month) I never once complained.
