the distant echo of faraway voices boarding faraway trains

Friday, 12 July 2013

 
 
Last weekend I went away on a girls weekend to Brighton to celebrate my auntie's birthday, which resulted (as usual) in a trawl through the north laines and all the beautiful vintage and antique stores. I found this shirt and skirt on a £5 rail, and just had to have them both because as you may or may not know I am obsessed with the colour red at the moment. I felt like I should have been wearing them with rollerskates and serving huge milkshakes in an american diner.
 
 
 
What must my neighbours think; they look out of their window only to see a girl spinning around on the spot taking pictures of herself with a tripod. Totally normal.
 
 
 
Petra Collins' Schools Out photo diary for Rookie is just so perfect. I wish we had such a fun last day at my school (also I want a seniors shirt even though I'm not a senior)
 
 
 
 
Another photograph from Rookie. I love the illustrations, and the girl's dress reminded me a little of my shirt.
 
 
This post ended up a lot shorter than I intended, but I'm sure I'll be back with my disposable film from Brighton after the weekend. Also my head should be sorted out by then and I might be able to think straight, instead of fumbling around like a dazed and confused child like I have been the past week. I blame stress and lack of sleep, haha.
Hope you're having a good summer!

  1. Rookie is the best <3 that skirt is so cute ah <3 I'm not allowed to go thrift shopping :/ The houses where I live are literally back to back with like, 10 feet of space in between. And there are large sliding doors so everyone can see me awkwardly posing and running back and forth between my tripod from their kitchen and it's soo awkward.
