Oh me, oh my, the weather this weekend was glorious. GLORIOUS. I realize it is completely dull to post about weather, but on Saturday we had +25C. +25 a week before Halloween! Unheard of. So balmy I walked around comfortably without a cardigan. Props to my mother for these photos! I take of my own photos most of the time, even in embarrassing public spaces. Hats off to Mrs. Lowe for the portraits (all other photos my moi). We went on a long walk together in the river valley and it was perfect.
The dress is actually one of the few pieces of high fashion I own. I've coveted this Carven dress since seeing The Cherry Blossom Girl wear it years ago. The print is a map of paris, and the fabric is so light and delicate and perfect. I scoured the internet for one a) in my price range and b) my size, for over a year! And then, on ebay in August a seller based right here in Edmonton was selling it for a price so reasonable it felt like train theft. We met up, it fit, and it was mine. Fate! Sometimes, you just have to splurge!
On our walk we saw these all over trees. Anyone know what they are? Larve? Cocoons? Do share!
Stay cool, cucumbers.
