CVS Delight

I went to CVS last night and  came across the god (or vampire) among men, Robert Pattinson, on the April cover of GQ. He was the perfect find for the role of Edward Cullen, amazingly handsome with mischief behind his eyes... 
I have yet to see the movie because my mom taught me to always read  the book before seeing the movie. By the time I had finished Twilight, the movie had already left theaters. BUT as of March 21 it is out on DVD! I have it downloading as a rental from iTunes as I write. I'm almost done reading Eclipse right now, and will start on the last book of the saga, Breaking Dawn.
I've decided vampires are my people, super pale and beautiful. I could do it. My skin is basically translucent anyway.... Just find me an Edward Cullen (aka Robert Pattinson) and I'm ready to be a vegetarian vampire.

"'And now,' cried Max, 'let the wild rumpus start!'"

They are making a movie adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are, which will be out in October 2009. I saw the trailer on Ellen today and decided it was a worthwhile thing to post on. I loved Maurice Sendak's story of Max being sent to bed without supper, and traveling to Where the Wild Things Are. The children's books illustrations were very distinct and from what I saw, the movie seems to have captured the muted, folky colors of the stories fabulous images.
I remember reading this story and also a couple others of Sendak's. I had the Nutshell Library collection growing up which included Chicken Noodle Soup with Rice, Pierre, Alligators All Around, and One Was Johnny. I would also listen to books on tape of Sendak's stories to help me go to sleep. Oh childhood, how far away you seem now. Life was so much simpler then.

There definitely seems to be a slew of interesting movies coming out...
Sunshine Cleaning (Amy Adams is adorable)
17 Again (only exciting because Zac Efron is staring in it, I know... I'm a 13 year old girl at heart)
500 Days of Summer (with my favorite - Zooey Deschanel)

Those are the ones that are on my mental list in my head at least. Are YOU excited for Where The Wild Things Are?

RePost: Introduction: Q.

Hello, Quinn here. Originally from Princeton, New Jersey, I have been residing in Baton Rouge, Louisiana for the past year and a half as an Apparel Design student at Louisiana State University. (I think I will go leave my story of how I ended up in Louisiana for another post. I’m not writing a novel.) I’m also minoring in French and Theatre, but considering double majoring in French. There are so many interesting options in college, I figured why not try to do everything I like while I
can, especially when I’m still young!

Though I’m pretty sure you could just scroll down and read Camille’s intro
ductory entry and basically be reading about me (I’ve come to the conclusion we may be the same person), I am going to expand upon who I am and how I define myself.

I grew up in a very creative, artsy family. My father is a photographer and my mother is a writer. I was always urged to use my imagination and to express my creativity. I guess this background is what eventually led me to my complete infatuation with fashion.
I couldn’t place my style into one definite category. It changes on a day-by-day basis, all depending on my moods and what has inspired me recently. I pull inspiration from everyone and everything, but some inspirations remain constant for me.

I am obsessed with Alice In Wonderland, Marie Antoinette, and Nautical anything. I enjoy the girlish fantasy involved with the first two I mentioned. The story of Alice in Wonderland presents so many interesting characters to pull ideas from, while Marie Antoinette represents one of the first major fashion icons. For nautical themes, I just can’t get enough of blue and white stripes.

Besides fashion, theatre is another one of my loves. Recently I have been trying out a different aspect of the theatre than performance. I am taking a Tutu and Dancewear Design class at the moment and have designed costumes for several studio shows. With my love of theatre, I find myself wanting to create over the top, costumey pieces. I enjoy Christian LaCroix and John Galliano who also find inspiration within the theatre. Especially Galliano with his over the top designs and shows.

I guess I will wrap it
up with just a few more things to know about me. I intend on studying in Paris next year, so get excited for the fabulous Parisian posts (nice alliteration huh). Like my fellow cohorts here, I also very much enjoy music. I love hearing new stuff, but I’m bad at remembering song names and such. Recently, I have come across She & Him and fell in love. Zooey Deschannel is AMAZING and I will definitely have
to post on her later.

Ok, I feel like I’ve only touched the surface of who I am, and that this post is rather scatterbrained compared to Camille and Marissa’s. Those two always seem so much cooler than I do! La de da.
Keep reading my loves!

A Whirlwind Of Two Decades and A Four Leaf Clover.

It has been quite sometime, and I apologize! Life has been hectic with midterms, starting two jobs and a show, turning 20!?, and my irish roots flaring with St. Patrick's Day right around the corner. I promise to post soon. 

Happy Birthday to Me and Happy St. Patrick's Day to You!

spring fever.

Though some of you are stuck in what seems like an eternal winter, down south spring has sprung giving me a bad case of spring fever. This short film, by Albert Lamorisse, was brought to Cannes in 1956 and won la palme d'or, or the golden palm, the highest prize awarded. Le Ballon Rouge is simply adorable and is only making my fever worse.

Speaking of spring and Cannes, this year's 62nd Festival de Cannes will be help May 13 through the 24. French actress Isabelle Huppert will be the President of the Jury. 

Oh how I'd love to be traveling around the Côte d'Azur right now or playing with a red balloon in the streets of Paris instead of studying for midterms...

Metallic Plastic Moss

As I was walking on campus, I came across one of the giant live oaks in the sculpture garden covered in Mardi Gras beads. Today was so beautiful, passing the sparkling, multicolored spanish moss was a pleasant surprise.

On my way back, I spotted another tree covered in beads, only there were a lot more silver and white strands. Reminding me of the icicles that are probably hanging off of the homes of my fellow northerners right now, I was grateful for the southern sun I've become so accustomed to!

Try to stay warm my loves.
