12.05.12 :: It's been a while...
So I’ve been a little off colour the past week or so (you could call it Casper-the-friendly-Ghost-white) and haven’t had the energy to do anything… not a spot of film archiving, photography or fashion blogging… not even a little #todayimwearing post. :-(
However, after lots of much needed rest & relaxation and sh*t loads of Lemsip, I am beginning to feel like me again… Phew! It’s a good job too as I’m almost out of Kleenex. Eurgh… having a snotty nose at 26 years old is NOT sexy. So today I decided to pull myself together, wash my hair, slap on bit of makeup and dress-up nicely/make an effort for a trip to the postoffice. (At least it got me out of the house, I was beginning to grow tired of these four walls… people who know me will understand that I need a LOT of human interaction and lately all I seem to do when I get bored is *bake cakes, which surely will result in me turning into a right fatty bum bum just in time for my holiday…
*Note to self: Curb the baking habit.
So this afternoon a freshly showered me rooted through my wardrobe and wondered what I could throw on that would be comfy but still look pretty. I opted for an old black and cream squiggly patterned sleeveless M&S Tunic dress that I found in a charity shop in Warrington some years ago for a couple of quid. For some reason, and definite lack of foresight, this dress - which was originally intended to be a Midi - unfortunately had its bottom lopped off by myself wanting to make it a bit more 60s ‘goey-outy’ or a bit more G.Y.G.O - my 272 girly friends will understand that one.
I teamed the dress with a trusty pair of black wool tights - it may be May but it is still freezing despite the sunshine, my blue denim #DIY Gold Studded Collar Primark shirt which I embellished with my own fair hands using: “100x8mm PYRAMID STUDS SPOTS Punk ROCK Biker NAILHEADS” off eBay which cost less than £3 including postage for 100 push in studs! Bargain! You can buy similar ones here and my new Schuh Cabe Leopard Print Lace-up Flatforms £40 from Highcross… the comfiest shoes I have ever worn/owned. So comfy infact that I have made JMG’s mum try them on too… she loved 'em! Argh! I’ve just looked and they now also do them in a Pink Suede Version… OMG! Soooo cool.
I also finally bought a remote shutter-release cable for my Canon 5D MKII DSLRwhich arrived in the post this morning. It was only £2.37 with FREE Shipping! Again it was another cheap-as-chips bargain shipped in from China. I decided to give it a whirl this evening and see if it gave me a bit more photographic freedom. I found that it did allow me to do a little more experimental self-portraiture but that depended on what lens I was using at the time. I think when I get a bit more money I will go all out and buy the wireless remote… which is here and prices start at around £13. Bargain! My gold horse tunnel earring were from Topshop a few months ago.
Anyway.. ta ta for now!
I shall hopefully post some new stuff soon.
