    The Autumn Leaves || feat Lindy Bop

    One thing I have noticed this Autumn is that my style is shifting ever so slightly once again. Through the past two years or so, I had honed in on a very specifically 1950’s feeling, gathering up loads of vintage dresses and accessories that emphasized that. It was the epitome of everything I’d ever thought I wanted with my style… and yet, I felt something missing. That something, I realized recently, is a bit of a fairytale. That touch of storyteller. Something a little fantastical. Many people began to follow my blog nearly ten years ago because of my writing. When I first started my “internet presence” as an introverted…

    The Lady of the Lake || How to style floral for fall

    Close to where I live, there is a beautiful little harbor full of boat docks, waterfront parks, and quaint tourist locations. It’s on the list of 10 best places to visit in Washington State, which seems so odd to me, being that it’s my hometown and I’m so used to the surroundings. They don’t seem quaint or interesting to me; they just seem normal. Everyday. Almost mundane. But even in the most everyday of places, there are still charming spots. This little house on the water is under the process of being converted into a public house for people to rent for parties as well as a space wherein those…

    Plaid and Wuthering Heights

    This was the first outfit I shot after finally replacing everything after the car fire. That event seems like such a distant memory now, even though it was a mere seven weeks ago. The circumstances being as they were, it barely feels like we’re missing any of the things we lost. The car that was my mother’s, that she rarely drove as it was; the computer and cameras that we were able to replace easily; the clothing that had all been bought online and was also quickly replaced. We are missing so few things from that event that sometimes I forget it’s not just a vague and unsettling dream. Despite…

    Fall Reading

    With the coming change of seasons, I find myself wanting more and more to curl up in a chair by the fireplace and read every gothic old novel I own. Dracula, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, all of Edgar Allen Poe. Fall is the time for moodiness and dark stories. It’s the time when I feel most inspired to write. I listen to grand, sweeping, and sad music, huddle up on my bed, and let imagination run wild. I draw a lot of my inspiration from reading. The way my favorite authors use their words; the beauty of old vocabulary; the attention to details. I can only aspire to write in…

    Desert Memory || A Short Film at Potholes State Park

    As I mentioned earlier this week, last weekend my family went camping at Potholes State Park. While we were there, my husband and I decided to film an outfit video, and I had a very vague inkling of what I wanted it to be. I really love making outfit short films, if you will, showcasing an outfit but in a storytelling manner, and while I wish we had gotten a more narrative collection of shots I’m so happy with how this one turned out! It’s given me loads of ideas for future short films that may actually become actual short films! In this, I simply wanted to shoot as if…
