Girl in the Black Beret

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.


Framing my face

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..
