Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing. - Harriet Braiker

First off, I totally adore the awkwardness of this video. The hesitant facial expressions, the dorky dance moves.. all of it. It makes them so human. And it was shot at Jean Paul Gaultier's house. He looks like a sly cheshire cat at the beginning. Oh sorry, did I mention Dragonette was Canadian? Yea, she is kick ass.

I am totally impressed with a few etsy shops I have come across. I saw a thread on the TFS and decided to waste some time clicking links. This shop is pretty amazing: reddoll. I can post more of my favourite shops if you would like. I have 6 saved on my bookmark bar.

I have taken my new minimalist obsession and applied it to my macbook and iphone. I've deleted most of my apps, and kept only the 20 songs I listen to constantly (this month). As for my macbook, there are no folder/icons on the screen, and I cleaned up my dock. This makes me feel so relaxed...

And I'm aware this is tres late, but here are a few of my favourite shots of the Chanel Couture Collection. My friend H told me to take a look at it, so I actually spent a couple days getting back into my girly side in order to appreciate it to my full capacity. The collection makes me think of Harajuku girls sent to study in France, during the early 1900's. I totally dig that.

  5. I stumbled on a Dragonette concert last year at Nathan Phillips Square! I think there was a fireworks show afterward. The lead singer told the whole audience that she was worried her new haircut was messed. I thought her humility was so adorable!

    Yeah, the latest Chanel couture collection really brought out a girly side in moi. I was surprised at myself; normally I like something darker like Givenchy, but I was only feeling, maybe, the first 6 looks from Monsieur Tisci this season.

    I'm glad that you're embracing minimalism. Remember when you showed me the pictures of Carine Roitfeld's appartement & thought it was too minimalist? There's a Zen quality to it, non?

    From personal experience, I think that perfectionism is more limiting & disheartening than it is demoralizing. It's a disease, really. It feels like mental paralysis.

    Anyhoo, ♥ you!
