This a going to be a post about love. So I don't blame you if you just skip over all the context and go straight to looking at the pretty pictures. I would. Because I'm not sure how much I understand it. I've been grappling with this concept forever it seems. I've grown up with love. I've seen my parents together, how they look at each other and how no matter how many years go by they keep getting stronger and stronger. I asked my mom how she knew she loved my dad. She said, "I just know. He is it for me. and I'm it for him." I heard the cheer in her voice when describing how they met and just after 10 months they were married. I kept wondering, but HOW do you know? Are there unique signs? Is it a sudden lightning strike of conviction? Or is it something that grows and develops over time?
I know it exists because I have seen it. It's that tangible glow in a someone's eyes when they look at you.
I've always been somewhat cold. I didn't mind being alone. And after years of disappointment in relationships, I think I lost the point of love. I'm still trying to find it, or if there even is a definitive point to the whole idea/feeling/belief.
Maybe love isn't something you have to understand.
I know I love my family, I know I love my friends and I know I love my animals.
Some things you just know.

Falling for Mod 2011

Chelsea boots, shift dresses, colour block, peter pan collars, double breasted coats, and a-line skirts; The 60s Mod style is in for Fall 2011! We've seen it before, as the weather gets colder, the warm tones of the 1960s fall back into autumn and this year it's all Mod. 

One excellent mod fashion inspiration for this fall is the ever popular Fashion model, Twiggy. 
Her dresses were always short, a-line with bold colours and clean, geometric lines.

Another 60s mod inspiration is the Designer Mary Quant. 
Pair her mini skirt "invention" with a pair of dark, rich tights.

Peter pan collar-Then and now
 Peter pan collars are sweet and vintage looking. 
They are a modern way to wear the 60s without looking like your wearing a costume.

Fire Escapes

 Forever 21 dress,  Vintage sequin jacket

I headed up to SF last weekend with my best friend Robert for his 22nd birthday.
We spent a lot of time out on the fire escape of our hotel, taking photos and taking in the views.
There is something so charming about rickety old bars and ladders outside an brick building. 
It's comforting knowing that there is always and escape plan. Even if it's just for a breath of city air.
