Kissing Roger Rabbit in the Rain.

I have a love-hate relationship with winter weather. I love it for the clothes I get to wear, and for the feeling of being all rugged up in a cold world, but I'm not a fan of the dreary grey skies and cold air - to be honest, it makes me feel a little down in the dumps. As today was one of the greyest days I've seen in a while, I dressed in a dark, black and grey outfit, steering away from colour. tomorrow I'm making myself mix it up a bit because all that black and grey managed to put me in a sulky mood I think!

For the first time, I wore my new Talulah "Kissing Roger Rabbit" vest today. It's quite different from anything else I own, so I wasn't sure how to style it, but I think I'll wear it with just black underneath next time - no grey.

I love the length of the vest and the way it falls. You can't see them that well but it has gorgeous decorative buttons!

Wearing: Talulah "Kissing Roger Rabbit vest", cheapo cardigan, Mink Pink dress, vintage necklace, RMK shoes. Nails painted in OPI Black Cherry Chutney.


I am happy.

I am happy today (not that I'm not happy any other day, but I'm just extra happy today). Have spent the afternoon doing homework for my favorite subject - fashion illustration and am feeling on top of the world! Wish all homework was this fun!

I have only worn red lippy a couple of times since I last posted on it, but today I decided to try it again! I felt very out of place on the dreary train ride to uni this morning, but for the rest of the day I was very pleased with it and have got to wear it more often!

Usually my best outfits are the ones I plan the night before, but I really liked today's - even though I just pulled it out of my wardrobe in a hurry this morning!

Wearing: Bardot blazer, Mink Pink top, vintage belt, Forever New skirt, RMK shoes, Tiffany & Co bracelet, Revlon lipstick in 'Really Red' and OPI nail polish in 'Big Apple Red'


I Feel Pretty.

I don't think I have ever felt as "at home" as I did in the outfit I wore today. It was very me, and I felt very pretty and girly all day - I love it when an outfit puts me in a good mood! Am wearing some new/old stuff I got on Sunday - a gorgeous vintage fluffy Alaia cardigan, a dress made from a vintage pattern and a necklace. My lovely brother took some photos for me today, so they're a bit better quality than my usual self timer pics!!

My gorgeous dog decided she wanted to join in on the fun, and have her photo taken too!
Isn't she adorable?!

Wearing: Vintage Alaia cardigan, dress from vintage market, noname tights, RMK shoes, Sportsgirl headband, vintage necklace.


Couch Jacket

I haven't posted in so long! Hopefully I'll stop being so slack now!

On the weekend my mother was going through some of the stuff she didn't wear anymore, and she gave me a few things. One of them was this gorgeous Anthea Crawford jacket. She said it's about 15 years old and I'm in love with it! The fabric reminds me of the upholstery of a couch, or of curtains! I was having trouble getting a decent photo, but here it is:

I also wore it with two other new/old things which I picked up at the Round She Goes preloved fashion market on Sunday. They are this black elastic belt with a gorgeous decorative silver clasp:
You can also see the colours of the jacket a bit better here! Please ignore the chipped edges of my nail polish, I just had a life drawing class and they got wrecked with charcoal etc.

And this hairpiece:

I am also quite excited by the length of my hair in these photos! I straightened it the other day so it's looking even longer than usual! I've been growing my hair for about four or five years now, so I'm very happy with it's length at the moment:
Wearing: Vintage Anthea Crawford jacket, vintage belt, Mink Pink rouched zip dress, over old knit dress for warmth, vintage hair piece, RMK flats, and cheapie tights. Nailpolish is Essie Angora Cardie.


I Think Ur A Contra

esterday I bought two albums I'd been meaning to get for a while, Vampire Weekend - Contra, and Angus & Julia Stone - Down The Way.

I decided to listen to Contra first, and I loved the last track, I Think Ur A Contra so much that I still haven't listened to Down The Way at all. I have been listening to I Think Ur A Contra non stop all day and I am seriously addicted. I don't think I've ever loved a song so much on the first listen, and I have no idea why I love it so much but it is amazing!!

I had a feeling once
That you and I
Could tell each other everything
For two months

But even with an oath
With truth on our side
When you turn away from me
It’s not right

I think ur a contra

My revolution thoughts
Your little arrows of desire
I want to trace them to the source
And the wire

But it’s not useful now
Since we’ve both made up our minds
You’re going to watch out for yourself
And so will I

I think ur a contra
And I think that you’ve lied
Don’t call me a contra
Till you’ve tried

You wanted good schools and friends with pools
You’re not a contra

You wanted rock and roll, complete control
Well, I don’t know

Never pick sides
Never choose between two
Well I just wanted you
I just wanted you

You said,
“Never pick sides
Never choose between two”
Well I just wanted you
I just wanted you

I think ur a contra
And I think that you’ve lied
Don’t call me a contra
Till you’ve tried
