Julie Delpy Makes Sneezing Romantic


Last night I was watching 2 Days in Paris. Julie Delpy (whom I adore) wrote, directed and starred in this movie and while it was funny and quirky, it wasn’t all that good. Until…the last scene, when she said this:

“It always fascinated me how people go from loving you madly to nothing at all, nothing. It hurts so much. When I feel someone is going to leave me, I have a tendency to break up first before I get to hear the whole thing. Here it is. One more, one less. Another wasted love story. I really love this one. When I think that its over, that I’ll never see him again like this… well yes, I’ll bump into him, we’ll meet our new boyfriend and girlfriend, act as if we had never been together, then we’ll slowly think of each other less and less until we forget each other completely. Almost. Always the same for me. Break up, break down. Drink up, fool around. Meet one guy, then another, fuck around. Forget the one and only. Then after a few months of total emptiness start again to look for true love, desperately look everywhere and after two years of loneliness meet a new love and swear it is the one, until that one is gone as well. There’s a moment in life where you can’t recover any more from another break-up. And even if this person bugs you sixty percent of the time, well you still can’t live without him. And even if he wakes you up every day by sneezing right in your face, well you love his sneezes more than anyone else’s kisses.”

I mean really…how perfect is that? I got goosebumps.

Look for Julie next in The Countess. (She’s writing, directing and starring in that one too!) The Countess chronicles the life of Elizabeth Bathory, also known as “The Bloody Countess.” Bathory killed over 600 young women and was rumored to have bathed in their blood so that she might acquire their youth and beauty. Sounds like a good flick! The film also stars my favorite German actor, Daniel Bruhl.


Peep That Street Style

Who doesn’t love a good street style blog these days? The web is littered with them, even so, it’s almost impossible to ever get enough. I myself happen to scour the World Wide Web in search of the latest and greatest in global street style trends on a daily basis.

After all, the streets and sidewalks of the cities we inhabit are the greatest runways of all.

While combing through the vastness that is the Internet I came across what has quickly become my very favorite street style blog to date, Street Peeper. We’re all used to seeing street style blogs dedicated to particular cities, London, New York, Berlin, Los Angeles…and the list goes on and on. But what makes Street Peeper so unique is that they’ve commissioned nearly a dozen photographers from every corner of the globe to snap photos of the hippest of trend setters in their home cities and the cities they frequent (over 20 destinations).

Street Peeper is your one stop shop for global style, oh and it just oozes with hipster chic!

Below are some of my favorite looks taken from the site.
