Headbands & Board Games & Tickets, Oh My!

First order of business: the shirt is from Musée d'Orsay in Paris. Isn't it clever?



These headbands from Tour de Force are so stunning.
The sharp lines and Flemish-painterly colors remind me very distinctly of one of my all time favorite runway shows: Dior Spring 2009 Couture.


(style.com)

This editorial by Miles Adridge immediately makes me think of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, especially the terrifying Johnny Depp film version. But in the best possible way, of course; the colors are so primary and vivid, and the playground is the perfect whimsical backdrop.



(Vogue Italia 2007)



They would have fit right in!
Freddie Highmore is the most adorable thing.
Can you believe he's seveteen now? And his birthday is on Valentine's Day!
Yes, I actually bothered to look it up so I wouldn't feel like a complete pedophile drooling over him.


I want to own this velvet couch. It's so comfy and from my favorite store on the entire planet, Midnight Farm in Martha's Vineyard. I know I've posted about it before, but it's just that amazing.


And you didn't think it could get better than a patchwork velvet couch: Diptyque candles and Beatles Monopoly. Oh yes. Don't you want to live there?

AND FINALLY...



MY PARENTS BOUGHT ME DECEMBERISTS TICKETS!
I AM THE HAPPIEST PERSON ALIVE!

Have a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious weekend (is that even an adjective?)... I'm savoring the last bit of my spring break.
An outfit post will come shortly, I promise! Probably Sunday or Monday.

A The Beatles monopoly? How wonderful! Is there an Abbey Road? :)

Emz said...

Have fun at the concert! That editorial is eerily like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Wait, 17? Really??? He was so small in August Rush!

Austere said...

Have fun at the concert! I think I saw them play a free concert once and it was very good. I realy like the connections to Dior Couture and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"

Austere said...

Yes, I would love to swap links.

A velvet couch would be soooooo comfy and I love the headbands, I wish I wore things on my head more often. x

I loved the Dior 2009 show, so outrageous and haute couture. The boy in the Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory is already seventeen, no way?? I own Beatles Monopoly, it's pretty awesome, except I buy all the things I want instead of what I need to win the game....I'm that kind of Beatles freak. And when we land on certain places I always tell everyone a story about it!
XOXXOO
