Gold mine

What is it about french vintage posters that make such impressive wall art? I have several versions including the cliche moulin rouge dancers and ‘paris miss,’ among a few others. The other day I was meandering around town when I wandered into the used text book section of a store I’ve been in a million times.  I spotted a platform that linked to another building and decided to check it out.  Never have I been more thrilled then when I found a gold mine for vintage posters (replicas, sadly.) Hundreds of french prints in stock, a huge variety of fine art, unique photographs from the film noir era. I left with nothing only because I needed to let the overwhelming possibilities sink in. Perhaps I will redecorate my room around whichever art fixture I decide on.

To chop or not to chop

Since my days as a little junior in high school, I have sported essentially the same hair style. Side swept bangs. (Which was a huge step at the time..) However, I think I’m ready to take the plunge aka commit to a center part with more intense bangs.  This notion has been on my mind for a little over six months and it’s getting to the point of ridiculousness.  Am I or am I not? Either way, my indecisiveness is beginning to ware on me. So, I believe I am going to do it and will no longer be wondering. Also, hair grows back! Yes?

Framing my face

Posted in Uncategorized by la vie de emie on March 26, 2010

The last few months I have been looking for the perfect glasses. I bought a pair a few weeks ago, but quickly fell out of lust with them, realizing the thick black frames truly overpowered my visage.  My endeavors have led me from hole in the wall shops to harvard square’s own ‘hootenanny.’  However, after much search on foot, I decided to look online. After a little over an hour, I found the perfect frames. 1950s Vintage Clubmaster Frames in black. They are lovely in so many ways.  Click, purchase! 2-3 business days..

Bows. Everywhere. I absolutely adore this style! Spring fashion is here and it is time to purchase the go to accessory. American Apparel sells a version that can be used as everything from a head wrap to a high waisted belt to an oversized bow tie.
