balloons & ribbon

these were taken the other day by my friend, marcio rivera.
i just have to say that i love balloons. they never get old.
whenever i'm wandering around with a friend i love to go to alan party supply and steal the slightly-deflated balloons that are always tied out in front. there's always a different color scheme and i really dig the one they had this time.

shirt is from h&m, AA skirt, suspenders either from deelux or rob's vintique (can't remember), shoes are from payless, and the socks are old ones i've had forever.

Also, here is something i recently made:

it was inspired by a type of ribbon "font" that my friend, lonny and i would use for flyers, etc.
lately i've been into really girly pink things for my room, so this seemed fitting.
i bent some wire into the words "love all you can" and simply glued the ribbon on there with a hot glue gun. it's about 7 ft. long.
i kind of wish that i'd used a thinner wire because it shows through quite a bit. it's also pretty visible, if not viewed from the right angle. nonetheless, i think it gets the idea across and looks pretty cute.

soon i will hang all my frames underneath it. i'm still trying to figure out which ones to use and how to arrange them. 

 lonny helped me hang it

Ahhh, we really should have hung out before I left.
(I haven't left yet, but am now extremely busy with getting ready to leave. It's so hard!)

If you find yourself in France, you can always stay with me. And hopefully I see you around Riverside before I go. If I have any spare time I am definitely going to hit you up, and we can do blogger stuff.
