the girl with the lace on her headband

Andy and I went down the UICA last night to see the film of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I felt a little more urgent need to see it since I had just finished reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest, and was sad knowing there will be no further Blomkvist/Salander tales. (Unless Stieg Larsson's estate approves some kind of terrible Scarlett-esque sequel.) I liked the movie very much, and am also glad the Swedes got to it before it was made into something starring Brad Pitt and Keira Knightley. (Oh, crap. That looks like it could be a possibility.)

I was also very happy last night because my wonderful new headband from branchbound arrived in the mail, and it is so cute. (Please forgive this close-up taken in the car en route to the movie.) I love the colors, and the headband is very comfy. Such a fun and easy way to brighten up an outfit! I know Sarah Louise is making more of these in various shapes and colors. She also makes lovely lace necklaces, earrings and combs--go check them out!

After the movie, Andy and I strolled next door to the Ladies Literary Club, which is a beautiful historic building that sometimes has concerts. In fact, we saw Andrew Bird play there a few years back and it was such a fantastic venue to see him in! The auditorium is very old school and intimate.

I took this hilarious photo of Andy in the parking lot. Love the mural and the old Caddy!



  1. I love how you two always take full advantage of your city - something I aspire to do myself!

  2. Your headband is so lovely, sounds like a nice day too!

  3. Love the outfit...and that last picture is awesome!

  4. Oh, you are too cute* I love that little headband - just the right amount of extra detail. Glad to hear that movie was good, I've been wanting to read the book but I will probably opt for the big screen version.... I have like, 12 books "I'm reading" already. Thanks for the post!

  5. Great hair, Great Dress, Great headband and so perfect all together. we saw andrew bird at a similar type of venue (big old building) and it had fantastic acoustics for him.

  6. i like how it appears there is a fine burning up the windows of the literary club.

  7. I've been wanting a piece from Branchbound lately too! I agree with 13bees, you make me want to go out and get full use out of my awesome little town. Luke & I DO visit the libraries quite often, but I'm sure there's so much more yet to do. That mural picture rocks, next time put it on self-timer and you get in there too! :)

  8. Super cute headband and great picture in the parking lot. :)

  9. This is such a cute outfit! I love the colors you've got going, the blue with that pop of yellow in the headband and those cute little black maryjanes :)

    That last pic is too funny! Also, that does seem like it would be an amazing music venue.
