and, for fellow brit pop tragics, there’s even a visit to justine frischmann’s place (it was so sad when she and damon split, though i never really liked elastica, THOUGH how good was connection and BLAH BLAH BLAH apparently i’m 15 again…).

remember when skirts over pants / trousers were a thing? i’m not talking about last year or whenever when vogue tried to bring them back and we all ignored them. i mean in the late 90s when you used to be able to buy ‘skirts’ sewn on to pants. for, like, $15 in the ‘workwear’ department at kmart or something. eww, shudder, foul, I KNOW.
but also FOUL and FRUSTRATING is how it is nigh impossible to find dresses / skirts at any length other than that shown above. okay; i love these dresses, all of them. and if i could, i would totally wear them (you know i would). but i TOTALLY can’t. they are just WAY TOO SHORT, even that last one. even with leggings or, dare i say, trousers underneath. because i am quite tall – almost 5’10” – and er, quite un-gazelle / giselle like.
i also couldn’t wear any of those shoes; see the 5’10” bit and then multiply that by extreme clumsiness / uncoordination (yes, i know that’s not a real word), but that’s another story.
still: props to peter pilotto because despite my personal gripes this collection is ace.
since i last posted i have a) turned a year older, and b) handed in my last assignment for uni (okay: technically i still have to do another 200 or so hours of work experience, but still.)
so here’s some super-electric colour courtesy of marc jacobs to celebrate :)
only one essay left, but it’s due next week and i am having a stall at the camberwell market on sunday AND turn a year older on monday (timing: sheesh).
clearly i need to stop learning the lyrics to ‘harder than you think‘ (true) and start writing my essay which – of course – is proving harder that i thought it would be (SO true). is there a god of irony? if there is, i hate that dude.
wish me luck.

the most amazing illustrations by sato kanae.
i want these on my wall / in a book / on a dress. all at once.
okay, so yes; i posted about that first bag last week. and yes; i’ve pinned those beach towels before.
but really: it’s monday. who doesn’t want cheery brightness on a monday..?!
