The Sequined Whale

Disclaimer: I did not actually wear the whale hat out of the house. But I sure do love that hat.








Hat: Vancouver Aquarium / Dress: ModCloth / Boots: F21


In other news, Vogue had a little piece about the upcoming Alexander McQueen exhibit at the MET and I have to got to say that I am getting so unbearably excited to see this thing!

You also may have noticed a little redesign happening over on the right side of the blog – I have the lovely and very talented Shari over at Little Blue Deer to thank for that!

And, my last bit of news, my amazing friends threw a birthday party for me this weekend and all chipped in to buy me a shiny new camera!!!! Not only am I super happy that I am lucky enough to such sweet and supportive people, but NEW CAMERA!!!!

You're going to have so much fun at the exhibit. I think the title of this post is pretty awesome--could be the name of some weird movie. love the outfit, whale or no whale.

That whale hat is Hilarious! I can see why you love it, I loved that picture.
Your dress is fantastic. I cannot express how much I love that dress, don't know if I mentioned this before but besides being a fan of animal print I am also a big fan of sequins, they make clothing so 'charming'.
Great outfit.

that's awesome about the tim burton book! when i'm bored i just read 'the melancholy death of oyster boy' because that book just makes me laugh so much and it's obviously a super quick read.

I love the sequins. I'm so excited to see the McQueen exhibit. I think it deserves a special dress.

Becca [Free Honey] said...

OK you have some great friends! A new camera?! That's awesome. What a great birthday present. I can't wait to see how it ups the ante on the blog. Were these photos taken with the new camera?? Also, whales and sequins: a match made in heaven! I'm dying of laughter over the whale hat. I'm also wondering what ever happened to my old crab hat!

Mo Pie, Please said...

Haha, the whale hat is pretty funny!

Pamela said...

You look like the result of a really hot night clubbing in some sort of a zoo/amusement park. My favorite kind of look, frankly. :-)

MONKEYFACE said...
