Acoustic Alchemy

Whew. These photos are of an outfit that I wore over a week ago! That's how far behind I am guys. This is also why I need to start dating a photographer (if anyone knows a cute one, send him my way!). That way I might actually be able to take regular outfit photos! 
I fell in love with this little dress when I was shopping in Winnipeg a few weekends ago. It's all lace on the top and completely pretty, I wasn't planning on treating myself but couldn't seem to leave the store without it! And I'm glad I didn't, it's getting a lot more use than I ever thought it would (I'm even thinking of sneaking it into an upcoming wedding if this nice weather keeps up).

I've been doing a lot of thinking about what I want to accomplish in my life (a certain nasty-number birthday brought this on...) and have started making a list; "the hundred". Quite simply, it's a hundred things I want to do/learn/see in my life. I haven't finished it yet as I'm trying to be honest and thoughtful about each entry (even if many of them are completely dorky and things only I would like (number 068. sing karaoke and don't care that I'm horrible)) but it's been really awesome to think about all the possibilities I have. 
What's on your Bucket List??

p.s look how pretty our fall is! 


  1. This is such a lovely dress, Louise! Totally wedding worthy! Plus I love those Le Chateau shoes! They always have very cute shoes there.
    Good for you with making "the hundred" list. I really want to start writing down (and crossing off) things I want to do in my life too. I can proudly say I've already accomplished number 68 on your list lol. i am a horrible singer but LOVE karaoke!!! :)


  2. Such an adorable dress! Love it :)

  3. Such a pretty dress! I think I saw this dress is lavender maybe last time I was at american apparel? I gasped a little, but wasn't fond of the color and went looking around to see if it came it any other color but didn't see it - nowww, I see that it does! So lovely, you pretty little thing! Also, no need to boys to take your photos - invest in a tripod! Invest, what am I saying, they're $30! And they make blogging SO much easier. I got ze boy to take photos once, but realized it's easier to do them myself, haha!

    I love the lace detail on the dress. I will be in Winnipeg in a couple of weeks with my Mama and we intend to do some shopping! She said we could as long as I drive ha!

    I think a bucket list is a great way to stay motivated and inspired. It's all about the zest for life! I would love to travel to far too many places, become fluent in at least one other language and become a pro surfer to name a few. OK, maybe not a pro surfer. That was my Blue Crush dream talking! xx

  7. A bucket list! Nice!! SHow us! :P

    I don't have one, but perhaps I should...

    Cute shoes, L and great autumn shot!

  8. i love that dress! i had a bucket list years ago...i have no clue what was on it! wish i could find it and see if its still stuff i want to do!

    good luck scratching those fun things off your list :)

  9. CUTE dress!! love the color of the belt and the ring together too!!!

  10. I'll be honest. I don't have a bucket list (hangs head in shame).

    But I do love that dress on you. The belt is awesome and the shoes with the detail near the toe? So pretty!


  11. LOVE the new header design!! fabulous outfit too of course! :) x

  12. The lace on the neckline of this dress is just beauitful! It really draws the eyes up to your beautiful face :)

    That is so cool though that you're starting a bucket list! I've always sort of wanted to do one myself, but it's just a matter of finding the time to start it. Hopefully you'll share a few of your goals with us on your blog? I hope so!
