there are so many things i have been trying to find the time to write about, but for now they are relegated to point form scrawls in my dilapidated moleskin. but the things that are most relevant to you, my dear readers, is the fact that i recently attended some conferences at la musée des beaux arts de québec about the connections between art and fashion. there are two more conferences in the next month and i am quite excited for them and will share pictures, thoughts and quotes when it is all said and done.
also, i recently starting working at a used bookstore and have been finding treasure after treasure. we often have to throw out old tattered books that are more often than not out of print and i have been taking the precious ones home with me. i will share the best ones with you soon!
but for now you can keep up with the images i love on tumblr.
