Reading the Classics

I don’t actually need to bone up on my Spenser, but I like the whole book as photo prop idea.


Plaid blouse: H&M / Vest: H&M


And for no discernible reason (aside from that I love them and collect them and adore C. Love - yes, I know she's crazy): TIARAS!!!!

I really need to get myself a tiara for my birthday this year, because who cares?! I love them too :):)

The book is a nice prop, it gives you an intellectual vibe ;)

I love your blouse and love the fact that is red.
Want to wear a tiara on top of my air-dry hair ..... maybe for summer. I know they were in style last year but this is one of those styles that is worth keeping longer.
great pictures, love the 4th one from bottom to top.

Tiara's are cute. Except on Courtney Love ; ) She always look trashy. Great collage!

Your vest is too cute! xo

Miss Emma Kitty said...

I Love your outfit ! It is Smart Chic. I used to Love Courtney Love's music. I still have her CD somewhere. It is good stuff. These pictures are Beautiful. Marilyn Monroe was the most Beautiful woman Ever !

Courtney Erin said...

@ Marie a la Mode - C Love does indeed usually look trashy but I love that it's unambiguous and intentional, say what you want about the lady but she's a weirdo and knows it and has exceptionally visible displays of agency and then some!

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

oh i had no idea you collected tiaras. i don't know what it is about courtney love, but i like her style too! lovely vest!

laura said...

LOVIN! the red and black. And that vest fits you so well! Tiaras are pretty and sparkly. They make me feel lovely. I wore a tiny tiara for my wedding, but that was it. I must feel pretty again. I must get a tiara!

thomessa said...

Tiara's are so pretty. I think less is more when it comes to tiara's. I love your combo of the plaid shirt and vest, it looks great!!

Bonnie said...

The vest over the plaid looks very smart. And I'd love to wear a tiara if I could find one like Natalie wore in Black Swan

GIRL AND CLOSET said...

Oh my goodness, so MANY amazing tiara's, beautiful! Love your H&M vest + blouse, you look great!

I am a huge fan of H&M and LOVE to shop! I stopped for a few months, because my closet was turning into an H&M shrine. Going back this weekend though. ;-) xx veronika

I like how your book matches your outfit! Excellent prop choice. Pretty sure I have that same vest ( I think you commented when i wore it!)

TGIT!

what a fun post, so neat that you're bringing attention to a piece that doesn't get much attention! :) they're all sooo gorgeous. and I love your book prop! ha-larious ;)

this free bird said...

I hope you're not getting sick!! Get your tiara on and get in bed.

on the cat front: um, there were three of them and within seconds i had named them: squeaker, samson and boss lady. perhaps we are cousins? i make up my own names for the neighborhood cats and proceed to call them my names in front of their puzzled owners. yes. it's an issue.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Oooh I love these iconic tiara shots! Especially the Marilyn one b/c it always makes me laugh. In the movie, her character doesn't know what a tiara is and accidentally puts it around her neck at first, hehe. :P

And your black vest is ADORABLE with that red shirt. xoxo

Kallie, Happy Honey and Lark said...

I'm kind of obsessed with the fact that you collect tiaras. I think its SO cool. I actually collect fairy wings because I thought I looked stupid in tiaras.
ps-those red shoes. OMG. PERFECTIIION.

Thanks for you comment on that stressful post of mine, I called Macy's and I had a very long chat with security about the problem. I'm still waiting to hear back from them.

I love tiaras!

A-Dubs said...

OK, I'm getting convinced re: the loveliness and collectableness of tiaras. And I love a good library fashion-photo shoot. Especially when the fashions involve such expert use of black. And even more especially when the man who wrote The Faerie Queene is invoked.

Love the vest!

GIRL AND CLOSET said...

Hello Courtney! Thanks so much for your sweet comments + follow. As for your question? I am in Vancouver, BC! Yay, for Canadian bloggers. ;-) xx veronika

Jessica Weingarten said...

Aaah I love your outfit and the pictures of Crazy Courtney! Hole is one of my favorite bands, but everyone always gives me crap for that!

PS, I've been coveting that mug for years. Very jealous!

Nnenna said...

I love the vest over your plaid shirt- you look so cute! :D
