A collection of photos taken horizantally during our trip to Paris last September. 
1. The most aesthetically pleasing metro stop I saw in Paris.
2. Two Matisses that have long inspired me and by total coincidence were in Musee de l'Orangerie.
3. Plants at the Turkish Market we went to. 
4. Flower paintings by Renoir. Also at Musee de l'Orangerie.
5. Amelia and my aunt Petra at Cafe Angelina. Their chocolat chaud, while expensive is insanely delicious. 
6. A painting of a ship on a stormy sea. Musee de l'Orangerie. Artist known, but forgotten by yours truly.
7. The ceiling of a rather well known department store.

The coolest dress ever

  A few Saturdays ago, I went to a really excellent garage sale. It was in the Central District and was ran by a lady who clearly knew her stuff. It was an all vintage sale and the prices were reasonable (but not cheap). I bought this dress and wore it yesterday. I was complimented so much on it that I decided I needed to properly document it for the world/internet. 
And here it is! Amelia took the pictures while we were in Ballard. She has excellent eye for color. Look at how perfectly the surroundings match the red and blue in the dress and socks.
1940s rayon dress: garage sale
Clogs: Lotta from Stockholm
Sunglasses: pilfered from my aunt
