Bottega Louie = ♥

Today we finally made the trip up to Bottega Louie. The pastries as so yummy that I'm angry with myself for not going sooner. Their macaroons are delicious, as well as their chocolate eclairs and raspberry tart and their chocolate financier... just to name a few, I ate a lot. Cliff and I met up with a good friend and had a lovely day.

I want it Now!

There are so many pretty clothes out there right now, here are a few from American Gold, tba and Winter Kate, that I want to add to my closet.

The SS 2011 American Gold line. I like that their inspired by indian summers, sleeping under the stars at joshua tree and flea markets. I'm a sucker for American Gold, here are my favorites.
Voodoo You Do Dress
Factory Girl Dress
Girl of my Dreams

Kind Hearted Woman Kimono

Another part of me loves and secretly wants to be Wendy Darling, which is what tba-to be adored is all about.
These pieces are from the Spring/Summer 2011 Collection, except for the sofia dress which is from a few collections back, but is absolutely gorgeous. I love peter pan collars, I would buy a an empty can of coca-cola if it was wearing a peter pan collar.
Sofia Dress
I want this so bad, of course its out of stock.

Mira Dress

Moon Dress

Cibelle Tunic

Last is the Winter Kate opy jacket that I had my hands on, but decided not to buy. It was on sale!!!
Now, I regret my decision, but it's sold out everywhere except for ebay where it's going for $300. Ugh! I'll wait a few months and maybe prices will go down, pretty please?

A lost love, Jovovich-Hawk

My favorite designers are the now long gone Jovovich-Hawk. Once I got my first "real" job I starte buying pieces here and there. I love their prairie/disco/boho/hippie/flapper vibe, it's very different from the stuff thats out there. Their pieces are whimsical and a bit costume-y, that's what I loved.

These are the first 2 pieces I bought on
The Vicky Dress

The Sissy Dress

These are pieces I've acquired through ebay
Rita Dress

The Flo Dress
This Dress took me 3 years of lusting to finally find and acquire. Now, I just have to get it a little taken in. I really cannot wait to wear it. I don't really have anywhere to wear it to in the next week, so I guess grocery shopping at trader joes will have to do.

Iggy Dress
I just got this one. It's made of wool and the weather in California does not warrant wool other than (maybe) December-February. So we'll see when I wear this. This is another piece I need to take in.

Fiona Top
I love the sleeves on this.

Daisy Blouse
I just won this on ebay.

At first they said they would put the brand on hiatus, but looks like it's most likely been put to bed. But maybe just maybe milla and carmen can come together after making movies and taking pictures and keep making beautiful clothes that I can spend my money on. Until then, I'll keep hunting on ebay.

Sunday Bunny Sunday

Easter sunday. I made a rare trip to mass, with my mamala. It was a beautiful midday, but now it's a cloudy afternoon. I'm cooking dinner for the family (chicken parm) which will probably take me a few hours. I always end up with food stains all over myself, so I think it's best I change out of my pretty dress. Have a nice Sunday.

The weather was so nice that Franky made a rare backyard appearance.

My eyes look a little wonky here, but I can live with that.

To new beginnings

...and to finish things you start. Lets hope this time I can keep up with this thing....anyway, today was a lovely day we didn't want to be lazy hobo's and stay in (as always) so we had lunch at the lake, then went for a mini hike. I wish I wore better shoes.
