A World In Reverse S/S '13

It's been just over a year, since we've last updated, and that is just ridiculous. It's been a hard and busy year of time, but that is never a good enough excuse. We've both realized this and want to work harder on this little blog and our shop, because it is a lot more fun than most other jobs and quite a satisfying hobby, once we've put some time into it. So if you are reading this THANK YOU, and please stick around, because you mean a lot.

On this note, I want to bring into light a little video I made to challenge myself and my schedule, as well as have some fun! It features some of our favorite vintage and personally-handmade items, up in the shop right now, along with some others that we love.

I hope you enjoy it and perhaps find something you love and have finally discovered!
Thank you so much for your time and we hope to hear back from you. 

Much Love,

Blooming Leopold Spring/Summer 2012

If you remember, last October, when Amanda and I traveled to Atlanta to model for Silent Sunday's Autumn/Winter lookbook, then you might understand the excitement that is this post. Rhiannon's incredibly talented sister, Lauren, asked us to model her hand-made line for the warmer months. In addition, she asked us to shoot the lookbook for it! Well, duh! So honored!

It was so fun to meet up with her and play around in her living room in these outfits. (She even fed us cinnamon rolls, fruit, and these awesome little triangular spinach/feta pastries!)
We went through a lot of film (including one roll that didn't turn out... R.I.P.) but in the end, I think the results are all right. Here are some of my favorites. You can view the rest here and Lauren's post on it here.

*All photos of Amanda: by me; and vice versa! 

I hope you're all enjoying your spring!

Easter [in way too many photos]

Amanda's dress: Vintage via Etsy.  My Dress: Thrifted in Wabash. Hemmed by Amanda.                                                          
A photo showing how badly our outfits clashed.

My dad and his girl friend are so awesome, seriously. They arranged an Easter egg scavenger hunt around Nashville. It started up in this look-out tower, where we could see the city they'd hidden clues throughout.

Each egg had a clue that lead us to the next.

 "Mr. Carmack's view from the hill is good, but the boys within sight are bad- 
sit on the boys, look at the wall,
you'll find your next clue there, so your search doesn't stall."
This was a favorite.
"...Roses!" A Singin' in the Rain reference! So many props, dad. So many.

Then we had a picnic!

These were my contributions, but my dad's girlfriend brought everything from rice balls and guacamole to chicken tenders. So many random and delicious things, as always.

 A day to be joyous!
 I hope you had a lovely Easter, as well.

Little Treasure part 1

Yes, I am Nineteen. Yes, I am too whimsical for this planet.
But you have to love this.

There's a little shop in Wabash, Indiana called Reading Room. It is filled floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall, room-to-room, with old books. So many hidden treasures! Every time I visit, I am totally overwhelmed, yet it is one of my favorite places I've ever been into. And every once in a while you find something unbelievable.

The owner, Tom, is an older sweater-laden, grey-haired/moustached, self-titled "snob," when it comes to books. He knows where everything is in the mess. Like a spidey-sense, only with beautiful, dusty, old books!
We always hold conversations over Antoine De-Saint Exupery (who is one of his idols/the author of my favorite book.) No matter how many months it has been, he always remembers me for buying out all his copies of "Le Petit Prince" [The Little Prince] and he'll whip out whatever he's found, in the time since, on Iceland. Love.

Anyway, here are some pages from one of my favorite possessions. Found on, I believe, my first visit to this treasure chest of a shop.

In case you cannot see, this is a 1916 edition. Warm fuzzies in your chest?

The illustrations are apparently quite rare and obviously very beautiful.
I wish I could absorb this book into my worldly vision.

Not only illustrations, but music!

Such a wondrous story, I've always loved. This is the best interpretation I've ever come across and I hope to keep it forever. We may have no say in whether or not we grow old, but I'm taking the choice opportunity to not grow up to the end of it's reign. (...I will never grow up!)

The First of March

Another day off. Aka: another day desperate to find something to do.
So, after dropping my dad off for his bike ride yesterday, Amanda and I hung out at a park we'd never hung out at.
The weather was beautiful (which  most of you southerners know, because it's all anyone talks about) so we wandered around, jumping off of things, for photos.

Yeah, that's right. Digital photos.
I finally bought myself the Canon t2i and a little 50mm f/1.8 lens on Valentines day. Had a mini anxiety attack, but I think it will be worth it. If nothing else, we get to "enjoy" the sets of ridiculous photos I take on days like this. Unfortunately my computer is too far gone to process the videos (and basic functions.)

Cameo Brooch: Vintage
Dress: TJ Maxx, of all places. (c/o Dad's girlfriend. Christmas 2011)
Shoes: Rachel Antonoff for Bass (second-hand gift)

Dress: Vintage (c/o Rhiannon)
Boots: Vintage Etienne Aigner (goodwill!)


Anyway, I've been meaning to show off this dress for a while. It's pretty perfect. Rhiannon let me wear it during the Silent Sundays studio shots and I fell in love. It never got listed, so I asked about it last month, and it ended up at my door. I have worn it about two times a week, so far. Hopefully some better shots to come later.

The Perfect Valentine Wears

Kelsey Genna's new collection is just darling! Personally, I would wear these beauties any day of the year, but they seem especially fitting for Valentine's Day, or in my case- S.A.D.  I'm going to dress up in my fanciest duds, treat myself to some serious ice-cream-age, maybe buy myself some sort of meaningless trinket,  and come home to snuggle with my dog and watch Breakfast At Tiffanys. Jolly good fun!

Have a lovely Valentine's Day, please!  Let us know what your plans are for tomorrow.
<3 Amanda
