Yesterday I saw "I am Love" or "Io Sono Amore" at a really wonderful local theater called the Bijou, which I will feature in an architecturally-oriented post soon. I cast a pink glow over my photos that was sorta throughout the movie in various scenes.

*Hot Lips platforms: thrifted in Virginia last summer.
*Vintage nude cuff: thrifted
I'm a firm believer that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so I hope Elizabeth from White Lightening doesn't mind my copying her method of self-portraiture. How fun is it that the dress pattern has stripes within the bigger stripes? Also I am in love with these shoes and deep slides in general, like in my last post. (Ps: polish is Mint Sprint by Sally Hansen.)
Have you seen "I am Love" and if so, what did you think? I felt it was deeply moving, touched on probably too many themes for me to fully absorb from a single viewing and also reminded me of my deep appreciation and passion for Italy and Italian culture. I don't want to spoil it for anyone here in the post, but feel free to discuss your opinion openly in the comments and so will I.
A quick update: I decided to switch directions with my Etsy shop. I realized I can't focus on buying and selling vintage right now because I am still nowhere near finished with my thesis. However, I will be introducing some VERY special handmade items that will remain a surprise for now. Stay tuned.
