Last day of camp, I walked out of the graduation ceremony. I feel like I've been let out of jail. Now I'm watching Garbo movies and her shiny, shiny pants are entrancing me. She was one of the first actresses to wear pants... and having sequined, shiny leggings and a swedish accent = Fashion / Life Icon. She was also possibly lesbian (lesbian superqueen Mercedes de Acosta was her friend to turn into stalker) but then Marlene Dietrich was bisexual, and I guess their sexuality at their time made them all the more ~glamorous.

And there is your Classic Movie class of the day! Give me chocolate for my kindness.

Mmmmm, there's a tea party I'm co-planning for my best friend. In the City... any recommendations? I like theatrics, she dislikes trendiness. Anything in between with good scones and good for a small group (4...?) would be lovely.

P.S I did not realize I matched my kitchen / was doing a Garbo impression until I looked at the pictures. Sweet.

Ms. Fashion Blanket! I miss your blog. Tell me when you're free for a shopping spree my friend. Multi blogger meet up sound fun?

I love the cardigan! And this outfit reminds me of Balenciaga Fall 2007.

i always found it inspiring when women during those times either weren't ashamed of their sexuality or didn't really do much to squash the rumors. it must have taken a lot of inner strength to not care about what others said in a time and place where differing sexualities were looked upon with disdain.

but, i love the leggings. and i love the shoes!

Nice outfit, I love the shininess of the leggings, also your hair is shiny, and your parrot's beak iw slightly shiny,and the glare on the wall from your camera flash, sshiny shiny..... by the way, your parrot is totally badass, I might go gay for him, and if it's a girl I"ll become a lesbian. (I always make sense when it comes to these things, don't try and correct me). YAY! you graduated from hooker's camp! did they have condoms and diaphragms attached to the diplomas? I actually saw an unmarked white van in my neighborhood today while walking around looking for squished animals to take pictures of (HA squished tree frogs have really long legs), there was a guy in it driving around slowly, I told him that the people in this neighborhood don't have young kids, then proceeded to tell him of the economic stress of michigan and the declining socio economic ratio of medium sized economically failing states, he felt my pain.

ben. seriously. come to jersey city and we can run the hookers together and talk to hobos about politics and frolic in lace dresses and paperbag shorts.s

Ben said...

that does sound tempting, what is the hooker/hobo ratio per sq.ft? Do they have soul eater there? And what about the schools for leahuhh lady and I's children? My family may be moving to new jersey, but I think we're going to princeton. If there's more hipsters then hookers I'll run to Jersey City

Arabelle said...

it's pretty low compared to long island, only 1.2 per square foot. yes we have soul eater and we also have ~brownies. and you can leave the children in one of my many harem mansions, where my cat maids will take care of them.

Ben said...

the cat maids are unnecessary, I killed the children and leathuhh lady, besides, I prefer parrot butlers. http://farm1.static.flickr.com/217/471100980_016ab60f24.jpg

Oh and the reason I came to this page in the first place was to tell you, arabelle, how nice your garbo mimicking, kitchen matching outfit is.

yeah that's it.

Jimena said...

Oh, how I wish I could pull of shiny tights. They look so great, yet... not on me.

The Clothes Horse said...

Oh! A tea party sounds wonderful. I quite like Marlene, she was a bit of a rebel and such a strong woman! Great outfit too, it's making me long for layers.

LEESH said...

I really like the way you blocked out your eyes! <3 the outfit too! & you have amazing hair!

Kat said...

Ah you have such cool style! Love the shoes! Those glittery tights remind me of the good old days of british ellegirl, which is always a good thing!

Ben said...

mmm, I'm a person who makes mini blog posts in people's comment boxes because I'm a loser.

susie_bubble said...

A little confused by the last comment but anyhow...not as much as I'm confused by the concept of summer camp.... a little lost on Brits but congrats nonetheless....
