A few (fancy) things

a few fancy things - drifter and the gypsy blog

onetwo, three, fourfivesixseven

I don’t know how you spent your Black Friday, but I spent mine at home in my PJs with my computer and a snoring dog by my side. Internet access, a cup of tea, and a big imagination is all I needed to dream up a fancy wish list for myself.

Mermaidens

Some people appear to live the dreamiest lives. This girl, Kailey, is one of them.

With her cotton candy hair and ruffly, pastel clad-outfits, I expect unicorns and fawns to come jumping out of these photos! This girl might actually be magic itself.

Playing at the Palace

I was going through some old photos on my computer and oh HELLO there were some pictures from the holidays that I never blogged about.  I figured I’d better blog these pictures now before it gets to be July or something. The holidays, wow, did they really happen? Seems so long ago, eh?

This particular day it was a little cold to take outfit pictures outside, so Mom and I ducked into the Palace Hotel to play for a bit. It was New Year’s Eve and man, the hotel was PACKED. Not the ideal for outfit pictures, but perfect if you want to get some odd looks from strangers!

This place is so grand and fancy, I’d love to see what one of their rooms looks like inside. My friend, Emma, said she stayed there once with her grandmother as a little girl (in a suite, no less!) and it was like being treated like a princess. A princess at the palace ♥

Jane

I watched Barefoot in the Park a little while ago (side note: if you have not seen that movie, go do so now!). It has Jane Fonda in it and until then I had always associated Jane Fonda with… well yoga and workout DVDs for older women and whatnot. But man, I didn’t realize how much of a babe she was in her heyday! Babe status.

I am just insanely INSANELY truly madly deeply in love with these photos of Jane doing yoga with her siamese cat by Genevieve Naylor.

I am a fan of the simple

I kinda sorta well actually really love this girl‘s style as of late. Her name is Julia Topaz. And she’s a 24 year old female living and attending grad school in Richmond, Virginia. Simple, chic, classic. A little bit tomboy and perfect in every way.

Please Mr. Owl

Someone once asked me if my style was an animal, what would it be?  And that kinda really stumped me. It’s a harder question than it seems!  But after thinking it over, I came up with an owl. They’re a little bit preppy, a little bit academic, a little bit girly, a little bit classic…

Now it’s my turn to ask YOU if YOUR style was an animal, what would it be??
