Spring dreaming

Ok so I know it's only January and I should still be enjoying cold wintery things but that seems a bit impossible. It's so warm here in California and all I want to do is lay around in the sun and wear pretty dresses and listen to Girls. Which isn't helping with this spring fever right now. I'm sure you've already seen their music video for Honey Bunny considering it came out months ago, but I still haven't gotten over how great it is. If you haven't please watch it a few times, and then a couple more times, and then some more and then maybe you'll understand why I'm so obsessed.

First of all Chris Owens is perfect/the absolute love of my life, but can we please talk about his girlfriend? Her amazing blonde hair makes me want to cry out of envy. Also I love the fact that she's wearing Chris' jean jacket, why can't I have a beautiful boyfriend who I can share clothes with??
I've wanted one of those Girls patches for so long but they sold out forever ago. Boo, life is sad. But then I just watch the video again and I feel a little bit better.
AND OH MY GOD HER SHOES. They remind me of the shoes from Chloe Sevigny's latest collection at Opening Ceremony.

Want to hear a sad story? Ok well I'm going to tell you anyways. I have been in love with these perfect platform sneakers since her collection came out and have since been saving/waiting to buy them. They are a lot of money, and last thursday I finally gained enough courage to go for it. I LOVE THEM AND I SHOULD HAVE THEM IN MY LIFE! At least that's what I kept telling myself as I hesitantly entered those 16 silver numbers on my credit card. I was freaking out a little that I just spent every last penny on sneakers but my vision of looking like this in two short weeks was canceling out any regret.

Well as I sat in my second period math class the next day, the only thing keeping me alive was the thought of those god damn beautiful shoes. A few minutes later I got an email on my phone from Opening Ceremony telling me there were no shoes left in an 8 or a 9, I honestly thought I was going to start crying in the middle of class. ALL OF THAT SELF CONVINCING AND DAY DREAMING OF DRIVING AROUND SAN FRANCISCO WITH CHRIS OWENS FOR THIS?! An automated email telling me that my dreams were crushed and I should just get back to logarithms with my stupid old converse. So that's the end of my pity party, dry your tears now. I know how heart wrenching it is but life goes on. And I'm hoping I can get my hands on them when they restock in March. BACK TO HONEY BUNNY.
Drool with me a little longer.

I can't get any of these dreamy, perfect images out of my head. I just want it to be spring or summer or some season that involves firecrackers and jean jackets and ME OWNING THOSE CHLOE SEVIGNY SHOES ALREADY.

I've also been working on my collages a lot. I hit the jackpot with my parents/grandparents old pictures. They are too good, and I've been having so much fun looking through all of them and adding to them. Here are some of my favorites plus a collage I did with a picture of my dad's apartment in london when he was my age.


Everything and a little bit more

Hi I haven't posted on here in a very long time so I figured it would be easier to just let everything out into one long post.
I'm not really sure where to begin so let's start with Moonrise Kingdom because I can't get it off my mind.

I'm sure you have already seen the trailer a million times, which would be perfectly normal because I can't stop watching it either, but I still felt the need to post about it and figure out why I'm so obsessed.

I don't understand why life can't be as perfect as a Wes Anderson movie. Or more specifically this Wes Anderson movie. Can't we just all agree to dress in amazing 60's attire and listen to records on the beach in our underwear and go jumping off cliffs??
But really I can't stop watching this trailer and I don't plan on stopping any time soon. Also my computer might just crash from the excessive amounts of screencaps I've taken of the trailer.

I know everyone gives Wes Anderson shit for all of his movies looking similar, but thats the point isn't it? WHY MESS WITH ALL THIS PERFECTION?

LOOK AT ALL THE GREASERS IN THE BACKGROUND. It's so perfect it hurts, really.

Also can we talk about her dresses? Who wouldn't want to go on adventures in beautiful 60's collared dresses with knee highs and saddle shoes.

Just when I think it can't get any better Jason Schwartzman (AKA THE LOVE OF MY LIFE) appears.

The trailer reminded me a lot of the french film Pierrot le fou, a french film from 1965. It's full of Adventures and running away and sandy shores and beautiful 60's tints and relationships that involve basically just being silent and looking awesome with a few phrases thrown in here and there. Another thing I wish was possible in real life, being silent and cool, too bad I guess I'll just go eat some more pizza and cry about being alone. Mmm pizza sounds good. Oh plus Anna Karina is the coolest thing ever and has a style very similar to THE YOUNG BEAUT in Moonrise Kingdom.

Sorry for suffocating you with so many screencaps but their all so pretty it's impossible to delete any. Well it's possible but I don't want to ok?
Ok back to Moonrise Kingdom. I was looking at Wes Anderson's top 10 criterion films and there's another movie on there that probably served as inspiration for Moonrise Kingdom. It's called L'encfance nue, another 60's french film. It's about foster children in France, but focuses on one boy and it's about him running away and being a rebel and it's pretty great.
