A full outfit post is a bit of a stretch for me. So a "Daily Detail" post of a section of my outfit will have to do until I can bring myself to ask someone to take pictures of me. And until I can bear to stare at my face for ages while I try to edit it so that I look like a human instead of a slug, which is what I normally look like in pictures.
I'm not entirely sure why the ends of my hair always look pink (slash orange..shh). It's one of the many reasons I've decided to cut it all off. I just need the balls and the money to do it now.
I'm going to apologise in advance for posting loads of pictures. But I just couldn't help myself, and you'll understand why in a minute.
I'm having a bit of a moment. It's sort of like when I first discovered Tim Walker and felt like I'd died and gone to fashion fairytale heaven. It's made me feel slightly panicked if I'm honest.
Bela Borsodi is an Austrian fashion photographer living in New York. He does still life editorials and they're just incredible. They're the sort of images that leave you staring at them trying to work them out, all while being beautiful and so polished. They're clever and funny and I think I might be in love with him, which is awkward.
The first images are by far my favourite shoot. It's called "While You Were Out" and takes on the idea of accessories coming to life while we're out the house. What makes me sad is that even my accessories wouldn't be this cool. They'd be in bed eating pizza.
The rest are just a random assortment from his website, which you can find here.
If you'll excuse my language, this last one is a complete mind fuck. IT'S ALL ONE PICTURE. My tiny brain literally can't wrap itself round this.
I feel like I've lost a whole day of my life staring at that picture. I've got a bit of a headache.
My boyfriend bought me some fake nails as part of my stocking at Christmas (bless him) and I'm just getting round to wearing them..as they're a little bit moreee..mental? than my nails are used to. In his words, "I got you the fruitiest looking ones I could find, as I know you like weird things."
Well, he's right. I do. And they are fruity. And long, pointy and multicoloured. And I can't make up my mind whether I like them. They're completely impractical and texting him to tell him I had them on proved too difficult. If he doesn't hear from me for days it's entirely his own fault. I've also scratched my face twice already and I'm too scared to attempt the toilet. But they are jazzy and fun and summery, so I really have no idea of my verdict on them. Not that it matters, because they're glued on now and that's that.
Thoughts? Any strong feelings either way? Just in case you love them, they're House of Holland by Elegant Touch and you can get them in Boots. There's a pooey green one in the pack as well but I didn't want that on my hand, which is why I have two orange ones.
I'm clearly still obsessed with the whole black-blue-grey-white thing that I posted about before. You wouldn't know it, as I don't look this chic. (Today I've gone for leopard print, net and gold chains and I look a bit like a Macklemore tribute act). I don't feel like I've bought much like this easier, and I reckon I'd definitely be happier if I had. Although I've bought a lot of grey. And I bought a blue and grey bag (which I need to show you, as it's incred). And I've bought black shoes. Ok maybe this has influenced me a bit. But I feel like I need to remember how much I like this when I go shopping and try and buy into it..rather than heading for the craziest thing that only a batty old art teacher should wear. Also..can we just talk about HOW CUTE THAT CAT BAG IS. What's better than a cat with eyelashes? It would literally only hold my phone but I'm not sure I care. With that and all my art teacher clothes I'm well on my way to being avoided in the street. Good.
I'm probably River Island's number one fan and have got to say I'm REALLY excited by some of the stuff that's coming out for Spring/Summer '14. It's not helping my resolution to budget and spend less money. Bastards.
I have no idea why it took me so long to get into Tumblr when it's pretty much my perfect website. I just never quite got my head around it and I'm kicking myself now. But I've jumped on the bandwagon (as always a bit late) and you can find my Tumblr here.
How perfect are the Topshop Unique thigh high boots? I've wanted some of these for a while, so I'm quite pleased that they're hanging round for next winter. Knowing the price of Topshop Unique though..I might start saving for these now. Maybe I should start doing some sort of exercise too, so that I can actually get my thighs into them.
