Block oh Block.

Wake up sunshine,

I have this new photo thing that I’ve been playing around with. Cute, huh?

“What shall we do, all of us? All of us passionate girls who fear crushing the boys we love with our mouths like caverns of teeth, our mushrooming brains, our watermelon hearts?” – FLB

Bunny ears? I’ve always been an Olsen twin fan.

Ughh, I need some coffee…

Have a great Wednesday,

Labor Day

Good Morning Girls (and Boys)

The models and I had a very fun weekend shooting more Rag Trade Vintage with bubbles and delicious cupcakes for props that we devoured afterwards. (look for plenty more Ebay listings posted later today in the shop)

Here’s one of my favorite pictures from the shoot:

I have decided that Rag Trade Vintage will now carry a line of vintage aprons (available next week in the shop)

Romeo and Juliet, found here, The Dream Walking Society.


If you haven’t seen this, you should watch it.

My Labor Day Playlist:

Ani Difranco – Both Hands

Kate Nash – Mouthwash

The Pixies – Where is My Mind

Elliot Smith – 401597

Madeleine Peyroux – Between the Bars

Denali – Hold Your Breath

Enjoy relaxing music, take a bubble baths, make some tomato soup, and have a great labor day. xoxo

Upcoming Movies (Trailers)

Alice, Ive been waiting for you’re trailer to come out for months. Lets hope Tim lives up to our expectations, but as I can see from the trailer he already is fulfilling them.

Paper Heart just looks like an absolutely adorable chick-flick-make-your-heart-melt-fall-in-love-film and Ill probably go see it with all of my sisters licking raspberry lollipops and worrying too much about how my hair looks.

Where the Wild Things Are is one of those movies that will probably make you think and dream more.

Save the Polariod.

Morning!

Happy Friday.

If you haven’t heard, The Impossible Project has teamed up with U.O. to bring back Polaroids. Polaroid announced in 2008 that they were ceasing production of instant film. Photographers all over the world (like myself)  mourned and hoped that someone would do something about it.
