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.

Larkspur and Madalynne


I am heading off to Ithaca, NY and the Finger Lakes now, and I couldn’t be more thrilled! But before I go, I thought I’d share a little collaboration I did with Maddie, the lovely lady behind the blog Madalynne. I told her a little bit about my mother and the tutus she used to sew for me, and she made a lovely post on the construction and history of this exceedingly frustrating and time consuming garment. Check out her blog and our collaboration – if you love sewing, or even just have a slight interest, she’s your gal!
