Girl Crushes. Seems to be a rampant issue with female bloggers (females in general?).

This blogger is not immune. My current girl crushes...

I watched Wings of Desire again for the first time in about 15 years (yikes!). Brought back so many memories-my freshman year of college, my first serious boyfriend, Halloween snowstorms in Minnesota. Solveig Dommartin, who played the female lead in the film, was a stunning woman. I think I was one of the few people who enjoyed Until The End of the World (loved that soundtrack) and she was one of the reasons why (Dommartin co-wrote and starred in that film). Until recently, I had no idea she passed away at the age of 45-of a heart attack- in 2007. Far, far too young.

Other crush: Marant.
For her personal style, design work, and she's got a damn sexy voice, too!
