Awesome day with Mary Van Note!

As if The Ladies Luncheon wasn't enough fun to fill a weekend, Monday I spend the afternoon with the amazing Mary Van Note! She is cuter than a witty button, and I'm so glad she wanted to meet up! We went  to see The Artist, and LOVED it. So cute. So good.

I wore some assemblance of a deco outfit, and Mary was in a stunning red velvet hat and fuzzy swing coat. We met early and had breakfast at The Morning Star Cafe, then caught the show. Afterward we went to The Portland Design Collective and gawked at some pretties they have before taking over the photobooth.

First without vintage majorette hats, then with. Because that's what happens when you have majorette hats next to the photobooth.

It was a perfect way to spend a Monday, chatting about vintage things, taking silly pictures, and watching a silent film. Thank you Mary!

I am so very envious of this outing. The Artist hasn't been released here yet - DYING to see it. PLUS two of my very favourite ladies. You both look amazing (as usual).

Oh, you look fantastic! What a great outfit for The Artist. Loved the tone of green as well.

Did you like the movie? I'm hearing excellent reviews but some say that there are a lot of inaccuracies regarding fashion items...

You look absolutly lovely both of you!!!
I'm really proud to be french with a movie like "The Artist"... it's not often that a french movie is seen by so much people around the world, there are only a few examples like Amélie Poulain or La Vie en Rose... always vintage inspired movies!!!

I love the skirt and it shows that the original long length of 30s skirts is flattering!

Sabrina said...

Looks like you two had a smashing time! And I love your little green jacket. :-)
I've been attempting to see 'The Artist' for awhile now; hopefully I'll find the time soon!

I am so loving your blog! It's funny because I have a hat that looks just like that black hat and I have been wondering how in the world do I wear this hat. Mine has two pins and I am so excited to see you wearing the same hat.
