i love this jacket so much. when i went back to suriname earlier this year, i rediscovered it in my old closet. it’s funny, i had been looking for a jacket exactly like this for ages. while this was in my old closet all along. i was very happy to discover that it fit me perfectly again. & that it has six pockets.

p.s. i’ve been learning how to properly use my good camera lately. not only with the ‘easy’ setting. these pictures are unedited. pretty cool, huh?

haven’t done this in a while! i often forget to take pictures when i don’t intend to post it on my blog & then the habit slips.

anyway, i was at the elf fantasy fair on saturday, in such a lovely spot to take pictures. & i conveniently had my boyfriend to do just that.

i also joined lookbook recently. i am curious how that will turn out. all of the people on the front page look like they could be models, which says a lot. as of this writing my profile is still empty, but i’ll add stuff later. if any of you are on there, do share yours.

during our photostyling class today we had to go out & do a very mini-photoshoot. & since we had some extra time…

this entire outfit was SO comfortable. i love spandex pants & big slouchy shirts. & of course, my trusty doc martens most of all ♥

Photobucket

for some reason i had horrorpops’ ‘heading for the disco’ stuck in my head a great part of the day. spandex pants, wide pink belt, she’s got the 80’s metal down. i don’t get why anyone would want to repeat this more than once…

& a direct result from the photoshoot part for school:

i didn’t do anything more exciting than go to the library today, but that’s no excuse for looking like a slob. recently i’ve started noticing how often i say/write ‘but’. is it annoying you? it is annoying me. but often i can’t think of another way to phrase these things. see! i did it again.
anyway.

i just made this skirt yesterday. i feel so lazy now when i make skirts like this, because they’re so easy. but. i like these sort of simple ruffled skirts.

i went to the adicts last night. so of course i had to dress up. in a very creative way.
it’s been so long since i went out dressed so extravagantly. i had almost forgotten how much i loved it.

i love this hat. i bought it at claire’s last year when fashion was still in the throes of alice in wonderland. because these things can always be improved, i sewed on some cards & glued different ribbon on it. my choice of cards was entirely influenced by the adicts & motörhead.

it’s a shame i didn’t have time to take better, more complete pictures. i really really loved this outfit. & i wasn’t the only one. so many awesome people came up to talk to me. one woman liked my look so much that she practically forced me on stage when the adicts called for ladies to come up & dance, deaf to my protests that i sucked at it. so i danced & sang on stage with the adicts. & some other pretty girls. i had a pretty amazing time.
the moral of this story? dress the fuck up. always. you’ll have way more fun.

didn’t do a lot of spectaculars today, but i felt like dressing up a little anyway. everything’s more fun when you’re dressed up.

i love this dress. i bought it in antwerp last week. it’s so typically 90s. really comfortable too.

flipping through one of those facehunter books recently, i thought about what a terribly lazy, uncreative, invisible dresser i’ve become of late. & was ashamed. issues with my closet & lack of sleep are silly excuses. this morning i almost put on another blah pants & plaid shirt combo. but, all inspired by mrs. westwood i thought what if i wear this shirt another way? then i reversed it, buttoned the bottom buttons, turned the sleeves inside out, pinned one as a halter & pinned the other to the other side under the collar. suddenly my outfit was a lot more exciting. not great, but exciting. & creative.

even if it actually looked ridiculous, my way more ridiculous shoes would distract everyone anyway. i ♥ these shoes.

later i turned the lacey part inside, even i thought that was a bit too much.
