Musée D'Orsay paintings in Rio

The so waited exhibition is finally here!
It begun last week, and today Pix and I went in normal clothes to see the ambiance so next time we will go with the loli girls.
We arrived at 11am and waited on line for about 30/40 minutes I guess (was good. In São Paulo people waited 5 hours on line to go inside on it's last week)

No pics allowed inside, makes sense.
So many beautiful paintings, my favorites were:

Le bain, by Alfred Stevens

L'attente, by Jean Beraud

The night ou Le Bal, by James Tissot

And a prostitute, by Toulouse-Lautrec

After freaking out with so many AMAZING art pieces, we took pics outside with some panels that were decorating the big room.

Look! It's me giving a walk on D'Orsay XD Super realistic!

And the Notre Dame de Paris!

I wore my new tattoo tights with oxford shoes <3 I really like my snake dress, is very comfy!

Since the cultural center is located on downtown city, we had lunch and gave a walk. Pix had to buy some boxes and, at first, I wasn't going to buy anything but I found those pretty bracelets for 2 reais each! (less than one dollar)

Bla bla bla random news

It has been a while since my last post~
Nothing very interesting happened. This month, I didn't wear lolita, now is getting hotter and hotter, what doesn't help at all when talking about layers...
Anyway, this is what I wore last week, normal daily outfits:

H&M hat, Calavera blouse, Zara pants, Applebottoms sneakers, Ed Hardy bag and Vivienne Westwood necklace.

Blouse print detail and Orb

This one I wore for a job interview (that, btw, I got!)

Express hat, Maria Filó top, Aüslander pants, Vivienne Westwood bag and Monderer sneakers 
I am going to work at a local brand store for Christmas' season. It'll be nice, I guess...extra money! \o/

And the view back home :D This is Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas and on the background, Corcovado mountain with Cristo Redentor's statue.
Seriously, my city is very beautiful! ;_;~

Friday I went to the hair saloon cause I couldn't take my long hair anymore. The guy cut 4 or 5 fingers and it's still LONG!

Before and after shoot
On the same day, dad came back from a business trip. He met some japanese guys and they gave him this box of german cake. 

It's made with vanilla or white chocolate, can't define...but it tastes sooooo goood!! I know there's a chocolate version too, which I had ate before.

And the japanese were so nice, they remembered my dad had a daughter and gave him this lovely mirror for me :D
It's made with Kanazawa gold leaves...GOLD LEAVES o_o
The work is amazing!! It's a technique they use for fine arts. 

On saturday I went to the shopping and a must stop place is the bookstore. I found those cool postcards set for sale. One is with some fairytales illustrations (I admit that most of them I had never heard about...gonna search!) and the other is from George Barbier, a fashion illustrator.

Fairy Tales

Barbier Fashion

Well...I never win anything on lottery games...but this time I won!! A super cute set with two tea cups :D Is from a cute local store.
I am glad I won something once ;_;

And for last, I received this today: 3 pairs of tattoo tights. They are cool! I am looking forward people's reaction on the streets XD I feel I am going to looooove their horror faces hahaha

That's all for the moment ^^

Thanks for reading and have a nice week!

[MOVIE] Les Adieux à la reine/Farewell, My Queen (REVIEW)

"Les Adieux à la Reine", or "Farewell, My Queen", is a french movie, released on 2011 in France and 2012 outside europe. Unfortunately was a movie that didn't come to Brazil (Too bad! Cause it's great!).
Way different from "Marie Antoinette" (2006), from Sofia Coppola, this movie is about the early days of the French Revolution, in 1789. It shows us more about Sidonie Laborde's life as the Queen's "lectrice" (She read books for Queen's pleasure) or her point of view/her routine and her obsession for Marie Antoinette.

The costumes are GREAT! And I must admit, the movie was completely different from what I had imagined. It's french! They have the power to surprise me!
So if you are expecting something HUGE, like "Marie Antoinette", you'll may be disappointed, but it's another view from French Revolution.

Sidonie Laborde and Rose Bertin's embroideress

And if you would like to watch the trailer: 

I recommend the movie, watch it if you guys have the chance. 
There's also a book, by Chantal Thomas, with the same name as the movie. It's on my book list now :D

2013 Agenda

Maybe it's a bit soon for this, maybe not since the mall is all decorated for Christmas <(o_o)>
But I was seeking a new agenda for next year. At first I wanted a full page for each weekend day but all the deigns were...normal. Nothing caught my attention till I see THIS! A MonokuroBoo agenda! 

The price was good too (I was in doubt between a Charmmy Kitty leopard cover one and this...but for a bit more I could get the spiral, which I think is better).

Yay! It came with a stickers page and a magnet book marker on Monokuroboo shape! Super cute.

Queen's Coach

My Queen's Coach corset skirt is here! \o/
I was afraid it could have any damage since the bidding price closed lower than it's original price.

The print is beautiful, and the fabric is the kind I like, a heavy and textured cotton.
