I took into realizing, as I'm just waiting here for work to arrive, that I never really talk about myself much. This blog was never aimed at something really personal, since I don't think my life is truly that interesting (except for a view of my little sparkly moments) But I think it's about time I go and give you a little bit of info about myself. Heck, why not have a time to flaunt myself! I think everyone should once in a while. So here it goes...
To start off, let's go with the basics. Who am I? I'm a little Upstate New York girl who happens to be in the city most of time and spends most of it making movies or working on them. Yep, if you can't already tell my life is film and fashion. Some people might say not to say the F word, but I say my two favorite F words with pride everyday. I personally think Fashion and Film both go hand in hand. Almost like a tango, they can't truly be one without the other. Though now a days, Fashion's role in Film isn't as big, it's slowly climbing again. Even Lolita Fashion is making it's slow creeping into Cinema's eye. Hence my eternal obsession that never seems to end. Also hence the creation of this blog and why it continues to thrive in the first place.
But look? Again I'm not even speaking one word of myself. I'll get all the frills out of the way. I'm a proud and out there sweet lolita. Though I don't wear it everday, I pretty much wear it 90% of the time. Angelic Pretty is my absolute favorite, favorite, and I mean favorite brand. I plan on being buried in it (Along with Betsey Johnson and Tarina Tarantino drapped all over me)and wearing it till I die as well. Once I have a steady enough income, I also plan on buying all the prints and pieces that I can. My favorite print? It's a tie between Dreaming Macaron (already mine!) and Magical Etoile. My recent favorite though is Fantasic Dolly, which has the best color-way I've seen yet from the brand (including the shoes they made to go with it, I'm dying to get them in mint!)
If I had my way, I'd dress in Angelic Pretty everyday. Sadly, I don't have the funds to continue new outfits for it on a daily basis but I try my best. My usual clothes though is either a kick butt nostalgic movie shirt, jeans and a nice pair of converse (Something I collect outside of the frills) OR a great dress from Forever 21 or Urban Outfitters with a pair of boots. Nothing fancy but nothing boring either.
You probably are also wondering what my favorite movie is? Hands down, Back to the Future. Probably one of the most un-girly, nerd filled movies. The rest of my list though is pretty diverse including Sunset Boulevard, The Hunchback of Norte Dame (Disney), Jeykll and Hyde (1931) and The Fifth Element. I have a really crazy taste in film but I think it sets itself apart from most. My favorite director? Guillermo Del Toro for sure with Billy Wilder right behind him. Both are completely different but have a fantastic eye on knowing what they are good at and have made all of my favorite movies (others I've mentioned and not). Del Toro though is above else my weird male counterpart and hero but thats for another post for another time.
Ok, enough of the nerdy stuff. Let me return to the frills. Everyone
seems to like coordinate posts so let me show you a dream outfit of mine. I'm really a fan of things parisian and sweets this season! So with that in mind I wanted to come up with a French Party outfit. Something I would wear thats both a bit elegant, sweet and fun to wear walking around a tiny French village and grabbing tons of macarons and singing ala Gigi! Yes, I think about these things. It's almost entirely made of Angelic Pretty along with some off brand hair combs.
WAIT!? What was even the point of this post?! Well I actually have a challenge for all of my readers and fellow bloggers. Create yourself your dream coordinate and let it incorporate something about yourself. Whether it be frilly or just plain adorable, I want to see your dream personal outfit! Why? Well let's just say there might be a prize involved for the best one. I can't away the exact details yet but I promise when there is more you'll get some details.
Excited? I hope so!
