it's the end of the world as I know it

Last night I got super fancy, put on my favorite earrings, and went out for a night on the town. Three hours later when I made it home, I took off my heels, pulled my hair back to wash my face, and took off my earrings. To my shock and disbelief, this is what they looked like:



The bottom must have come off somewhere throughout the night. I realize how superficial I'm being, but they were my favorite earrings! They are from Anthropologie, and I just adore(d) them. I guarantee all of you who know me saw me wear them thousands of times. If anyone sees the missing flower part, or another pair somewhere (anywhere!) please let me know so I can attempt to resurrect my darlings.

so beautiful

sofia

I don't know what it is about Sofia Coppola that makes me love her so much, but I can't help it. I loved Lost in Translation, and The Virgin Suicides, but I hated Marie Antoinette so much that I did the unthinkable and turned it off about 3/4 of the way through (I know, I should watch it again, but I just haven't gotten around to it.)

Aside from her films and the fact that she is only the second female to be nominated for the "Best Director" academy award, she also directed my favorite commercial EVER that can be found here. I want to live in the world of that commercial.

Also, I love her because of her friendship with Marc Jacobs. And because she has amazing style.

But I must say that part of the reason I love her so much is because her looks are so unconventional. She has a fairly large nose, she has extremely round cheeks, but somehow these silly little things just make her more beautiful. I love women who take their flaws and make them beautiful. Sofia's style is unconventional as well, and she always manages to look effortless yet polished. I don't know how she does it, but she does it flawlessly.


Plus, I totally want her to come decorate my apartment. I love this photo of her on her sofa. It's so chic.

fall

It is my favorite time of year.
The leaves are changing colors,
The mornings are clear and beautiful.
The afternoons are sunny and brisk.
I couldn't be happier.
