greek goddess/heroines

Hello friends! I have another interactive project I'd like to start with you all! I'd love to do profiles on the Greek goddesses, or women from Greek myths. Like my Disney Princess series, I'd like to have your thoughts on your favorite myth, why this lady is your favorite, who you'd like to portray her in a movie, and the best part... make a Polyvore of clothes for her to wear!

This of course may be much more difficult than the Disney Princesses, but it may also be fun!

Some myths to consider: Aphrodite, Artemis, Athena, Hera, Demeter, Persephone, Penelope, Philomela, Antigone... There are many, many myths featuring Greek women that are really fun and fascinating!

If you're interested, please comment with who you'd like to cover, and I'll be in touch!

When you live in Arizona, there are typically two seasons: cold and hot. Cold is finally over, and that means it's almost summer!

A nautical vintage summer would be nice...

but I live no where near the sea!

Or a summer where I rode my bike through some meadows...

...but sadly, I'm a terrible bike rider! (And there are no meadows here!)

I'll just have to stay with friends...

...swim in the pool...

And enjoy hot, beautiful, summertime Arizona!

movies: cracks

Happy Easter, everyone! I hope everyone's days are filled with candy, rabbits, hope, and love.

Today I watched a very beautiful and very tragic film called Cracks, starring Eva Green. It was a very disturbing films in some parts, but I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it! The clothing and sets were amazing, and all the actresses were really incredible.

My favorite parts were the girls' hair and clothes! I am dying for a pretty fabric headband like this, does anyone know where I could find a tutorial to make one, or a place to buy them?

The story tells of a group of girls who are infatuated with their beautiful and alluring instructor Miss G, played by Eva Green. A new girl comes and their Miss G begins to hold the new girl in high regards, making the others extremely jealous.

Eva Green, while delightfully disturbing in this movie, looks impeccable and beautiful!

I got these images from assorted places on Google, and Tea with the Vintage Baroness.

Here is the trailer!

My outfit yesterday. Everything from forever 21 except the shoes, which were bright pink flats and from someplace I forgot.

I hope everyone is doing well! I'm doing pretty good here. Sorry my posting has been so sporadic lately, I'll try to do better!
