And the sky was made of amethyst

Monday, 29 April 2013

 
Happy Monday! Monday sucks. My monday sucked a little less than usual though, because my art teacher suggested I did my whole project on David Bowie and I am so excited and yeah. Anyway, here is the outfit I wore to go and have tea and cakes with my Nan on Sunday (how very english of us!) I got the top from Camden when I went with my friends on friday, and the skirt from Portobello road (Notting Hill). My cross necklace was a present and my chain also from Notting Hill, and my
shoes are from Office.
I know the photos are really out of focus and I'm sorry but it was super windy outside and I didn't have time to do them again.

(had to get Bowie in there somewhere)
 
So I went to Camden Market with a few friends on our day off on Friday, and I had some film left on one of the disposable cameras from Italy, so we ended up taking a bunch of photos which kind of fit the vibe I'm feeling this week.
 





 
 
(my Rock by Mail stuff came (not the glasses; they're from Notting Hill) I suggest you order some bits and bobs off there as not only do they have loads of cool stuff for good prices but everything I ordered came nicely packaged & presented one working day after ordering)

  23. i swear, your face is very beautiful. it makes me think of candy-apple (or is it apple-candy?) and some other fruits. :)
    and your journal is very nice! love how you covered some writings by your hand (reminded me of Tavi's old blog post). i wonder how long it takes for you to finish a page of your journal? each part of it seems well-executed! and, where do you get those photos you put in it? :)
