PS: This was the failed first batch but this pic was prettier since there was natural light. The actual ones look much better d:

This is an autumn drink that I like to make sometimes when it's rainy out... cinnamon spiced maple latte. It's interesting how you can represent, or embody a season in a cup. Can't wait for winter when I make mint hot chocolates, or maybe a mint hot mocha (cause coffee makes everything better) and curl up in warm fluffy blankets reading, Netflix or playing a game 🤓
Witcher 3 and to the moon are at the top of my long game list rn.

What you see here is a group cooking session we had on a rainy day with some friends...We made Chole Bhature, an Indian dish from the Punjab region, alongside a dessert called Gulab Jamun, the round, dark caramel-coloured thing that tasted like suuuuper sweet doughnuts.
Yums!! We were taught by a friend from Assam, India! Shoutout to neijou 💕
Still going through all the photos I took at the Bullocks Wilshire event yesterday, hosted by @artdeco_la 🎩 It had been 13 years since I’d been inside, and as a law student I didn’t have the same appreciation for its fashion history that I do now. I’ve always loved the fifth floor the most, home to the desert lounge and the tea room, with the most gorgeous palettes of greens, golds, pinks, oranges and rust. In the 1930s, fashion shows would have been held here in the tea room, and the adjoining desert lounge often functioned as an art gallery, displaying pottery, paintings, drawings or even rare antiquities from around the world. It was a truly wonderful experience; thanks to the Art Deco Society and @southwesternlawschool for letting us enjoy this truly unique landmark. More photos and history to come! // #vintagepalette#1930sarchitecture#bullockswilshire#vintagelosangeles#losangeleshistory
Things I like: peach and rust with greyish green, cute scarves, comfortable pants, good photo lighting, Wednesdays that feel like Tuesdays. Things I don’t so much care for: dozens of consecutive spring days that don’t get above 65ºF, and wrinkles from sitting at a desk all day.

“Cochinelle Pink... Helena Rubinstein took this vibrant new colour from her collection of Mexican paintings by Reyes… shown left. Cochinelle and blue blouse, with black wool slacks; $50. Cochinelle rayon crepe dress; $70. Both, Clarepotter. With both—Helena Rubinstein’s new Cochinelle make-up. Both coiffures, Michel of Helena Rubinstein… Jewels, from Van Cleef and Arpels.” Photo by John Rawlings for Vogue, March 15, 1942. // #1940sfashion#clarepotter#1940s#vintagepalette

“Like these other country women, Mrs. Gowen wears tweed by day, likes soft clothes for dinner. She lives in an imaginative, white, low-lying house; has two sons—one a private in the Marines. Here, over grey skirt and grey shirt, she wraps a melon-shaped coat of coral fleece wool designed by Monte-Sano.” Photo by Irving Penn for Vogue, March 15, 1946. // #1940sfashion#vintagepalette#1946ismyfavoriteyearforfashion
Today’s palette is all about neutrals, and one of my favorite combos is black and brown. Vintage 1940s trousers from @cameoappearance_vtg, top from @revellecollection // #vintagepalette#thevintagefashionchallenge
Next level #vintagepalette : “A glorious colour formula for the country. Jaeger’s camel’s-hair suit that you’ll love as you loved your old polo coat. A purple lining and blouse. Violet suede hat and bag. Jangles of gold bracelets and a watch-fob. All are from Bonwit Teller; and I. Magnin, California. The final touch—Elizabeth Arden’s Daytime Cyclamen Make-Up. The frame—a superb Chippendale door from Stair and Company.” Photo by Anton Bruehl as seen in Vogue, September 15, 1938. // #1930s#1930sfashion

What do you wear with purple? Vogue had a couple suggestions in 1944: first, “a little party of purple-based colours. Start with an Edwardian suit of this Parma-blue wool. Have a blouse of shocking-pink crepe, and alternate it with one of fuchsia taffeta. Alternate the Parma-blue skirt or jacket with an equivalent of fuchsia wool.” Or, “Sugar a dark violet suit with a bow-blouse, half blue, half biting-pink. Or put a dark violet tweed coat over a pale blue jersey dress. At neck of violet coat, loop a pink crepe scarf.” Vogue, September 15, 1944. // #vintagepalette#thevintagefashionchallenge#partyofpurple
Love this look by B.H. Wragge circa 1945. The designer behind the label was Sydney Wragge, whose father Bernard H. Wragge was born in Germany and came to America in 1885. B.H. worked as a salesman in haberdashery in New York and by 1930 had established his own men’s custom shirting business. By the late 1930s, the business transitioned to women’s sportswear, designed by Sydney. It was a separate concern from blouse manufacturer K. Wragge, and though there is likely some family connection there somewhere, I couldn’t find it after building out three generations of both families. This coat dress carried a retail price of $35 in 1945, about $485 in today’s dollar. Also of note: the simple hairstyle. // #bhwragge#1940sfashion#vintagepalette
