The Red Shoes

After hearing wonderful things about the 1948 film 'The Red Shoes', I decided to watch it a few months ago.  I loved it so much, I re-watched it and made a few screen caps for you all to enjoy and to hopefully encourage you to watch it yourself.  Basically, it's about Victoria Page, a young ballet dancer, and her pursuit to become a prima ballerina.  There's certainly more to the story, but I won't delve into it much deeper... you'll just have to watch it yourself.

The entire film was absolutely gorgeous, with the most stunning set designs and costumes.  Psshh... I would wear Victoria's performance dresses out regularly!  Not to forget, the dancing (duh)-- it was lovely and makes me wish I had not given up ballet when I was just a naive young-ling.  Anyway, prepare yourself for many screen caps-- like I said, the film is gorgeous!

so much to enjoy in this moment.

wuuut... so pretty!

yuus, dancing with a newspaper man!

Nadinoo Spring/Summer '11 Collection!

Nadinoo's Spring/Summer collection has arrived-- brimming with pretty floral fabrics, pastels, and sailor inspiration!  I really can't imagine anything more perfect for the Spring season... makes me feel nostalgic.   Not to mention, I suddenly have the urge to prance through a remote field of flowers, somewhere in the countryside (Switzerland comes to mind *flashbacks to Heidi*).  Ah, and doesn't everything just look so fresh and airy~ Mmmm...

Sunday Treasures

Today was nice! My dad's endlessly-kind girlfriend took Amanda and I to lunch at our favorite vegetarian restaurant--where we split a grilled tempeh, avocado, "veganaise" (and sprouts? I forgot) sandwich--with a side of hummus. It was perfect. She also bought me an iced almond-flavoured rice milk latte, at the coffee shop next door. (She gives us too much!)

Following this lovely meal, Amanda and I went to a little thrift store in East Nashville called "The Hip Zipper," which we'd been to once before, with no luck. I don't know why, because we really enjoyed it today. It's just what I would have pictured when hearing "thrift store," before ever having visited one. (Running on visions of movie sets and vintage-themed imagination...)

Anyway, we each found something wonderful for the shop and will list those items soon!

I also found this leather bag and couldn't walk away without it... I was attached at first site. I love that it  combines my preferred darker style with the bit of floral that I also frequent. It has three full compartments, two zipper-pockets, and two more open pockets. (Things could actually get lost in there!) But the details are what make it such a beautiful find. It also came with a slightly-yellowed tissue and a hard candy that appeared to be older than myself. Bonuses! Huzzah!

Later Amanda and I walked through the park, to another park, where they have Steeple Chase. We spent a good two and a half hours outside, walking, lying in the grass and having a "snack picnic."

Even though I am uncomfortable being the victim in front of the camera, Amanda got a few photos of me in the dress I bought with a gift certificate I won from a drawing, a favorite blogger, Rhiannon (Liebemarlene) did! It's something I wouldn't normally get for myself and it has a really full circle skirt that is fun to wear. (I won't go into detail...)

Nonchalantly examining my finger nails.

...Not even posing.

Dress: Ruche
Shoes: Thrifted
Cheap sunglasses: Urban Outfitters
Bag: Thrifted
(Though I'd worn a better-matched, small black velvet night bag, before this purchase.)

Blouse: forever 21

Shoes: Thrifted


Disclaimer:  I wore more practical shoes to walk in, during this bit of the day. These images are just a  fallacy. I am not a real fashion blogger.
