Let’s take a moment

to look back on summer and laugh. Because it feels like it was forever ago, doesn’t it? I almost can’t remember a time it was light past 4:30 pm.


I found the shot of Grace Kelly here. Speaking of the Princess of Monaco, I just re-watched Rear Window and fell in love with her costumes all over again. Have you seen it? They’re incredible, aren’t they?

    I love this photo of princess Grace.

    Gorgeous and free.

    And all her Hitchcock costumes were fabulous!

    Oh I agree with you, the whole getting dark at 5 is incredibly depressing!

    and I should watch that movie, she is so adorable

    I still sigh at the thought of that full-skirted white cocktail dress she wears when she shows up at Jimmy Stewart’s apartment, the one with the black leafy tendrils over the tulle. Utter perfection.

    Mizz J — how incredible would it be to live in Vancouver half the year and Sidney have the year? If you timed it right, it would be summer year-round.

    Saskia — she’s outrageously beautiful, isn’t she?

    Miss Neira — you’ll fall in love with her costumes.

    Lisa — it is! Absolute perfection. And she carries it so well.

    SLK — Ha! and you think I’m a nerd.

    Sofiasophie — That is such a coincidence — that first one is the best. I want one like it to wear to the ballet, in fact.

    Vancouver summer = lame. It’s like someone stole my daylight hours from me. GIVE IT BACK TO US!!

    How are we supposed to take photos?! :(

    Superb posts. More winter wardrobe please (may as well make use of layering while we can?)

    Grace Kelly’s B/W dress is a high point of my favorite movie, which also includes my favorite screen kiss of all time. the super close up, slow mo kiss she gives Jimmy Stewart is a heart stopper.

    I can see you spend time blogging, I can tell you it’s worth it! Love it! And Rear Window happens to be one of my favorite movies, the black and white dress? Amazing… I smell blog love here:) /Hermione

    Sandy — I’ve been so bad about posting winter outfits. I’ll have to get back into the groove.

    Christopher — Her black and white dress would be perfect for the opera, wouldn’t it?

    Hermione — It is so well done, isn’t it?
