Going for a Swing

Audrey and I spent a day at the park a few weeks ago, and she seemed to really love it. She hated getting into the swing, but once she was in, she was loving it. One of my best friends, Gia, was home this weekend, and we went to the park with her, too. She's all about it.

We've gone with Spencer before, too, but he gets too worried that she's going to get hurt. EVERYTHING we tried to do, he'd say "No, that's too fast" "No, that's too high" "No, that's too dangerous." He was cracking me up. Needless to say, that park trip didn't last too long.

I really, really wish that this wasn't sideways, but I can't figure out how to turn it around! Oh, and you can ignore my crazy person voice. I go to great, embarrassing lengths to make her crack a smile. Just mute it or something haha.

Babies are High Fashion

I totally stumbled on the most ridiculous but most amazing child website EVER. Children Salon is an adorable upscale children's clothing website that carries brands such as Baby Dior, Little Marc Jacobs, Burberry, Armani Junior, Chloe, John Galliano, Ralph Lauren, Fendi, DKNY, John Paul Gaultier....and the list goes on and on. Pictured above is an approximately $25 Dior pacifier, which are apparently called "dummies" in Europe.

It's honestly INSANE. There's a ridiculous white Fendi stroller that costs over $800. Now, besides the price, my major question is WHO WOULD MAKE A WHITE STROLLER? Has that individual EVER had a child before. Or even been around a child? Heck, have they ever SEEN a child in a stroller? If you have said "yes" to one or more of those questions, than you should have never made a white stroller. Even if it is Fendi. And gorgeous.

The Little Marc Jacobs stuff is ADORABLE. They don't have much for babies, but these little mouse flats are SO cute. Granted, they're crazy expensive for baby shoes--we're talking like $60. Jeesh. And how awesome is that t-shirt dress? Your child would be the coolest thing everrrr.

Speaking of being really really cool, can we puuhlleeasssee talk about this Burberry trench. For babies. Heck, I would wear that coat. Except it's, like, over $200. I don't think I've ever spent that on a jacket for myself, let alone for my rapidly-growing child. I mean, children grow out of clothes in like 3 to 6 months. Insaaaaanity.

However, the most outrageous item I saw (so far) on the site was this little number. It's an over $200 fox and rabbit fur jacket that "is perfect for glamorous girls." Granted, it's not necessarily for babies. The smallest size is for 2 year olds, but STILL, a 2 year old in a fur coat?! Those free-flowing bodily functions--snot, spit, poop, pee, barf, etc.-- will greatly compliment that pink fur.

Not much to do with babies, but stilllllll

Ok, so this doesn't have much to do with the Audrey part of this blog, but this editorial from Harper's Bazaar Russia stood out to me for some reason. The title is translated to "The Renaissance of Grunge." I found it on foto_decadent.

SO COOL. Love the mixture of patterns.

AND LOOK, A BABY IS INVOLVED! Haha I'll tell you what, I think I have some baby radar nowadays. I clicked on the link initially just because I liked the first picture, but then of course, there was a baby in one of the pictures! I WOULD find the fashion editorial with a baby in it :)

love love love.

Model Material

She's not afraid to glam it up.

She can even look Asian if needed. (Versatility)

She is more than willing to do commercial advertising.

She knows all the right poses.

Alright, I'll admit, sometimes, she can be a diva. PRIVACY PLEASE!!!!

Oh, and she's willing to take it all off.

I don't know why, but I love this picture.

I think this picture is just wonderful for some odd reason. It's blurry; it has an odd blueish tint; it's not focused; it somewhat gives me a headach; it's hard to tell what's going on.
But every now and then, you've just got to say screw "good" photography.
This is just amazing.

Holly Golightly + Bumble Bee!

This is one of the few pictures I have of the two of us this Halloween. Guess who I was? I was my second favorite Audrey (Ms. Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's) and in case you were unaware, Audrey was a bumble bee. I'd say we're pretty cute.

On Friday, her and I went to a Halloween party at my friend Katie's house. It was pretty fun, and Audrey was a hit, as uuuuusual. She was clapping like crazy. She just figured out that little skill recently, and she seems to love the reactions she gets from everyone.

Saturday was a pretty fun day, too. One of my best friends, Angie, was home from college in North Carolina, so we went out to lunch with her and her sister, did some shoppppping, and had a delicious dinner at the country club that they belong to. Oh, and somewhere in there I took my sociology test, too. But good LOOOOORD Almighty, this lady FLIPPED OUT at us at the country club. We ran into a friend's mom and were talking to her for literally less than one minute, but apparently we were in front of the TV broadcasting the PSU game. This woman gets up and yells, "GET OUT OF THE WAY GIRLS! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" At first we thought she was joking, but we quickly realized she wasn't when she continued "WELL MOVE GIRRRRRLS!" Oh, aren't people just wonderful? I guess when we were walking to our seats she said "Who do those girls think they are?! This isn't some gathering spot." Uh, yeah, technically, I'm pretty sure that is the point of a country club. Oh, and she was using a reading light to see her food since it was dark in the room. Yeah, we win old grumpy lady.

After dinner, Angie and I went to my neighbors' Halloween party for just a little bit. It's so funny to see all the adults in my neighborhood in all their crazy costumes. There were some good costumes, such as the Publisher's Clearing House winner in PJ's and curlers, complete with an oversized check and balloons, a man in a woman's sexy nurse costume, a black judge, a gynecolegist, a urologist (Dr. Orphelia Weiner), etc. etc. etc.

During dinner and this party, Audrey was hanging with Maureen, my godmother/executrix extraordinaire. She took Audrey to her son's hockey game,and I guess her bumble bee outfit was a smash hit. Oh yeah, I made Audrey wear her costume alllllllll day on Saturday :) Hey, I figure she won't let me do something like that, like, EVER again. Plus, I insist on getting my money's worth! Most importantly, she looked so stinking adorable. What made it even more hilarious was that she has no idea that that's not a normal outfit to wear. So there she is, doing her thing, hanging out at lunch and the mall dressed like a bumble bee.

(This is Katie's dog, Lucy. Her and Audrey were BFFs for a night. It was cute.)

(Oh, and besides the first picture, all of the pictures were taken by Katie Hoffman.)
