growing up, my family didn't have television, but what we did have was every disney movie ever made. to be honest, that stopped right around hunchback of notre dame (my siblings and i were getting older and losing interest,) but it's the older ones that i like the best anyway; the time before computer animation made everything so polished, when the songs were just great songs (well, sometimes.) the "sing sweet nightingale"s and just about anything from dumbo. i've had this one stuck in my head for the last couple of days; maybe posting it here will release me from its clutches (even if it does mean revealing my disney dorkiness to the world.)
anyway. a couple of quick outfits to catch me up to date. i got a job at a bakery a couple weeks ago which means early mornings donning jeans, a t-shirt and some onitsuka tigers; comfy indeed, but rather anti-climactic for posting purposes. so, instead, here's what i was wearing friday night (right before he proposed) and the night after, when we went out to a friend's for dinner, then to a benefit, and i drank a lot of champagne in celebration.
sweater jacket: thrifted
jeans: cheap monday
top: anthropologie dress
purse: etsy, vintage
not sure if there's anything new here clothing-wise but i'm trying to mix it up a bit with location.
one more disney song before i'm out - found this behind-the-scenes of one of my favorite disney songs of all time, he's a tramp. has there ever been a sexier song in a kids' movie? and i had no idea that peggy lee had written/performed it! and i love the line, "it painted our hero as quite a gay dog with the ladies." enjoy.
the wedding isn't going to be until sometime in 2011 (we're thinking spring or summer. . . or fall. . . sometime warm) so i'm trying not to be too crazy about posting stuff, but i already have a few things i've been eyeballing that i'll post soon.
ps - to the couple of inquiries about the stevej & yonip dress - after a few days of no one inquiring, i decided to take matters into my own hands, and i started to alter it so i can more easily wear it every day. sorry! i will post photos once i'm done with it.
New Year, New You.
