Come on now baby gimme just one look


I’ve been listening to this song on repeat for about 6 days straight now. I’m choreographing a piece for a production my dance company is putting on nearing the end of January, and I had been searching song after song trying to find something that resonated with me, but also fit with the theme. I was given the “lover’s quarrel” as the title of my piece, which I’m pretty excited about. My personal ventures in love and heartbreak (wahhhhh!) are often where I pull from when choreographing, so it’s right up my alley. It’s the emotional Cancer vibes in me that feels all these feelings and wants them to be made into something tangible, and have others experience and relate to it. Needless to say, this song has been on my mind for days, and I sort of pulled from it when taking these pictures – restless, bored, moody vibes.

Okay! The clothes! The bloomers and camisole are two of my most favourite pieces that I own. The 1920’s camisole has made a few appearances on the blog already, but let us welcome these adorable 1950’s bloomers (hey friends!). I found them at Petrune – a little vintage store in Ithaca, NY. They were kind of an impractical buy, but I’m a sucker for vintage lingerie, so it couldn’t be helped. I wore them for a little bit lounging around the house, but little tears started forming in the butt, so they have been retired to the depths of my drawers (which is the way with most of my delicates).

I had a really lovely, relaxing weekend. Now just to get through one more week of work, and then I am off to Ottawa for about one week to see my wonderful family, and eat all their food.

    I didn’t know you were from Ottawa! I will be going to the Ottawa region for the holidays (ok, Hull and Aylmer), and EAT ALL THE FOOD AVAILABLE ON THAT SIDE OF THE RIVER.

      Oh, I think I remember you mentioning Ottawa when we met. Is your family in Aylmer and Hull? Oh am I ever familiar with Hull. It’s where all my pals moved to once they left their parents home. Cheap!!!
