Things That Are Awesome Thursday: Jackets

It's officially been Spring for two days. It's felt like Spring for two weeks.
Nothing gets you through the ups and downs of spring like a great jacket. 

 live in Jackets. I like the structure they give to flowy dresses, the slightly masculine feel, and the seemingly endless variety.

This might be a bit of a dream assortment, but a little dreaming never hurts.


Things That Are Awesome Thursday : Ghostly International

Last Friday I found my way up to New York for a show at the Bowery featuring Matthew Dear and Blondes. I knew it was going to be awesome, but I had no idea it was going to be that awesome.
The venue was quaint, the musicians were super cute, the crowd was all foreign, the drinks were cheap, and most importantly, the music was stellar.

Ghostly International is a record label that puts out music that is all about having fun. 
What more could you want?

Check out some of their videos on vimeo.

Garden of Heavenly Dresses

I've always been more interested in contemporary art. But there is something about "The Garden of Earthly Delights" by Bosch that is, and always will be, unparalleled. It was my favorite painting in art history books, and after stumbling upon it at the Prado in Madrid, it will always be my favorite painting.

Enter: Carven

The Parisian powerhouse can do no wrong in my book. I've always been smitten with their perfectly tailored silhouettes, slightly feminine details, and the most incredible materials. But this dress goes above and beyond anything they have done before. 
They made my favorite painting into a dress. In a phrase, "I Die!" (and not even ironically, I'm serious about this.) I love how the colors are altered to fit the fall season and the print is warped and twisted to fit the silhouette of the dress. This dress is everything a printed dress should be.

 It's clearly out of my price range.
I can compare pieces from Carven to MONTHS of rent.
But... this dress will have me splurging.

They say you should wear what makes you happy.
Nothing makes me happier than incredible art and beautiful dresses. 
Win Win.

So I want to start a new feature:

Basically, every Thursday I'll give you a little insight into what I'm really into that week.

This week is Jellyfish.

I don't think I need to say much about this.

I'd just like to remind you that Jellyfish don't have brains or hearts, and they're still awesome.

Happy Thursday!
It's Friday tomorrow.
