Le Voyage du Ballon Rouge

When I was a chronically sad and hopelessly romantic fifteen year old, I went to go see The Flight of the Red Balloon at The Plaza, which is a small theatre built in the 1930s located in downtown Calgary. Before the show started, short films created by students at ACAD appeared on the screen. I went alone and sat near the back like I often do when I see movies. 

Now, 4 years later, I vividly remember some scenes from the film. One that particularly stands out is a scene where the nanny is in a park with the boy and she's wearing layered black down to the ground. For whatever reason, this is the image that comes to mind when I think about the film now. Recently though, I decided to rewatch it and, strangely enough, that scene doesn't exist. There's a scene of her in the park, but her outfit is incredibly different than what I've been remembering for the past 4 years. Still though, that memory is what inspired my most recent OotD.

Lookin' for boys

Valentines day is my second favourite holiday. I can't get enough of red and pink coordinations, flowers and cinnamon candy hearts. I've been working for Lush for the last few months and to celebrate our Valentines Day products, I had the opportunity to wear red and pink with my work clothes. I was ecstatic because I own a lot more red and pink than I would care to admit. 

On my last shift before Valentines Day, I decided to pull out one of my favourite dresses and wear sort of a summery bratty ensemble. My valentine was sweet enough to snap a few shots of me before I left for work. 

I'm a bit fan of eyeball detailing. I'm building up my eyeball accessory collection. This outfit features an eyeball hairbow and ouija board necklace.


Hairbow: Cute and Creepy

p.s. I was inspired by this song for this particular outfit.
