the heist for high society.


H&M poodle print jumper | Nasty Gal chiffon blouse | H&M full skirt | Aldo kegerries brogues | Zara satchel

As the winter season begins to wane, I figured to post a fleeting tribute to the cold, bitter weather. I got the cognac brogues while in Dallas, and this pooch jumper from H&M this past Christmas time in L.A. for a swell of a deal. Although I am more of a feline fan (especially for my sweetheart of a kitty Neko, whom I adopted from a shelter), I do have a spot in my heart for dogs. Poodles? Not so much. They are sort of a prissy breed to me, especially when their owners put them through the misery of painting their nails and fixing bows into their fur. But this knit with a poodle image stamped in the center came off pretty cute, so I snatched it up (I mean, heck, it was on sale.) 

This high class breed fit in perfectly with the museum Koby and I decided to visit earlier this week, which is a historical mansion accompanied by grand sweeping gardens. The museum had a fantastic exhibit showcasing the transition into modern appliances from the 1920's to present. Appliances back then were such a luxury and made of higher quality materials. People at the time also really appreciated the convenience the appliances provided, and spent the time to esteem each innovative household object that was rolled out to consumers. 

Now? Not so much. I, myself, have fallen victim for taking the toaster for granted. So the exhibit was an eye opener and it was definitely enriching to see the styles and color schemes that established these appliances as works of "art" for their decade. 

So the next time you roll yours eyes at your iron, or your dishwasher, just think, people back in the day had to churn their own butter. And some still do, if you prefer the quaint farm life (which sounds quite charming, as a matter of fact.)

love the dog! Very classy and fifties feel:) also adore the knee highs! a month or two ago I was saying how I think they would come back into style and no one believed me but Im feeling like I was correct in this prediction! Here was my fave outfit with knee highs: http://youngguccipurse.blogspot.com/2011/01/gossip-girlscout.html

i agree, it's amazing how far everythings come, including appliances. i don't think i could churn butter and all that, it makes me appreciate everything more.
