a birthday in polaroids

Yesterday was my birthday and it was a lovely day. The weather was perfect for doing the one thing I really wanted: swimming! I hadn't been in the water since our April heatwave so we headed to the lake and spent the afternoon keeping cool and exploring. I got to document the day with one of my favorite presents. The Boy gave me a SX-70 polaroid camera which my little heart has been lusting over for I don't even know how long. I am going to have lots of fun with this.

a bit of inspiration to tide me over...

In preparation for moving it seems like, lately, my life has become an endless whirlwind of painting, cleaning and more painting. Which accounts for the lack of posts around these parts. However I did manage to find enough free time recently to go see a movie called Easy Virtue. I found it very charming and enjoyable, but beyond that the costumes were amazing. I am always a sucker for 1920's fashion and this movie had me wishing so hard that people still dressed with such glamour these days. In any case, it got me to thinking about some of my other fashion inspirations from years gone by.

The end of painting is in sight now, I can feel it. In the meantime, here are some pictures.
