in a garden


i had a little party today. nothing major, just a small lunch with a few girls. it was a 'catching-up' type lunch with good food and good people. as you can see, i was going for a sort of tea-swim suit party.  

farhan james and i took a trip outside to walk on the rocks . . .

this dress, another vintage piece, reminds me of the costumes in the d'aulaires' book of greek myths i had as a kid. i loved the illustrations of the gods who were draped, of course in some gauzy/ethereal fabric.  i idolized the goddesses - they were feminine and powerful.  ancient, awesome, badass women. amazons of the spiritual world. totally cool.

i offset this vintage, ulta-femme dress with tough, but sleek shoes. a black leather upper with satin accents, these l.a.m.b. heels are 4 inches of amazing. admittedly i can wear them for only so many hours, but i think they're worth the trouble. let's be real, gwen can make anyone feel like a rock star.

the party menu. 
  appetizer:  great harvest honey whole wheat bread with strawberry butter. 
  entree: baked salmon rubbed with potlatch with a salad made of figs, avocadoes, cucumbers,        green onions and mixed greens drizzled with blasamic vinegar and olive oil. 
  dessert: black bean brownies. and yes, they're actually really yummy. 
don't hate, healthy food makes you feel good.
