I mentioned in my last post that i enjoy taking totally amateur 35mm film photos. These are all from the most recent roll i had developed - photos from a beautiful day in Santa Cruz. I love the way everything in Santa Cruz is true California colors, peaches and greens and blues, and when the fog sets in at night on the boardwalk it really does feel exactly like Lost Boys...

Golden Girls on Film

i'm a big fan of the crappy point-and-shoot film camera, preferably a disposable. I love taking photos but it takes me about a million years to finish a roll - so on this momentous occasion of finally getting a roll of film developed, here are a couple more favorite shots from our Golden Collective Vintage Sale - turned - dance - party a couple weeks ago:

Flower Gazers

my friend and exceptionally talented photographer Chantel Beam took me on adventure of a photo-shoot a couple months ago in Oakland. It was a totally impromptu and unexpected shoot for me, but i am so thrilled it worked out. The photos have this awesome, eerie floral-teenage-alien-doll-kraftwork-album-cover vibe to them. I still love them so much, I wanted to share them here - her shoots just keep getting more and more impressive, i hope i get a chance to work with her again soon!

Gimme Gimme #1

This will be pretty self explanatory. I find myself compiling urgent wish-lists often. For me, spending an evening on the internet will result in a handful of saved bookmarks linked to items i just need. So I'm sharing them here in case you needed to need them, too.

#1. Nasty Gal's first line of original designs is out - and while a lot of the styles on the site are a little too too for me, (not to mention i think you need the legs of a supermodel to pull most of it off) i am dying over this glitch skirt.

#2. I'm also really excited about the Nasty Gal original denim line of high HIGH waisted jeans in the dark indigo. Even though the high-waisted wave has been around for a while, it still seems absurdly difficult to find really high waistlines. and i like 'em high

#3. I wear lipstick every single day. I am a lipstick fanatic. I started wearing it for work several years ago and at this point i feel quite literally naked without it. But there are some days when lipstick just seems like too much, and yet i still need a pop of color. For those days, I've been searching for the perfect lip stain. After reading a lot of reviews on the internet (reading make-up reviews online is totally one of my guilty pleasures) I am really interested in trying the Smashbox Limitless Lip Stain & Color Seal Balm, probably in Guava.
