kristy for velour

Is this editorial not the most charming thing you've ever seen? Featuring the stunning Kristy Kaurova in romantic florals, gingham frocks and quirky shoes. This spread is so ideal for Spring inspiration. Lately, I've been browsing the net non-stop to find ideas for updating my spring wardrobe. I love this flirty gingham dress Kristy wears so well. Usually it's hard to wear gingham without looking like a tablecloth in an Italian restaurant, but this dress seems to be the exception. 

I went shopping briefly on Sunday with my lovely best friend. We went into all the usual teeny-clad chain stores just to chew up some time,  not expecting to be impressed. Although, in stores such as Valleygirl, we were surprised with the amount of approvable floral frocks and floaty, gathered skirts. We then ventured into the cinema to watch Jane Eyre and weren't surprised by the audience which was approximately 98.3% little old ladies. The film was eerie and mysterious with dramatic characters and a heart-breaking romance between Jane and Edward Rochester. Even though they do end up together in the end (sorry for spoiling it!) I still couldn't help shedding a tear at the story in general.By the way, thanks so much to everyone for all the wonderful feedback I have received over the last few posts! It's truly fabulous and the comments are always so uplifting! I'm sorry for being M.I.A the passed few days as well. I have been drowning in homework and  practising for my new-found obsession/ hobby (ballet). Have a lovely week!

Aww, you're doing ballet now? How wonderful! When I was 7, I had the choice of either picking up piano or ballet. It's crazy to think that if I had chosen ballet, I probably would not be a music major right now. Insane. I still wish I danced though. The only dancing I've done is hula, but it was pretty mediocre.

I want to see Jane Eyre - I saw the older one (I'm not sure if it was a tv adaptation or not) and liked it, so I thought this one would be worth a watch. Ballet sounds like a lovely little hobby, and that editorial is gorgeous.

The images are so beautiful and girly.
Jane Eyre is one of my fav heros of ficition and I thought the film did her justice. I loved the dark undertone of Mr. Rochester and I thought both leads gave terrific performances.
