 I’ll be going to Secret Garden Party for the first time ever this summer, and I’m SO EXCITED! This is the kind of thing I plan on wearing while I listen to loads of bands, drink cocktails in the sun, and play with my friends on the grass *sighs wistfully*. The footwear, admittedly, is a little bit ambitious, and I know I’ll probably end up wearing Converse rather than polka-dot wedges, but for these photos they’ll do just fine! I hardly ever wear heels outside, as I’m already 5’10 in bare feet (people tend to stare a little bit when a 6’2 Dementor in a playsuit that shows a little bit of her butt cheeks strolls along holding a glass of wine and a cigarette) and I can’t walk in them for very long. I can do a cool model-strut for about 100 yards, and then I have to be taken home.

I have no idea what the line-up is going to be yet (why does Secret Garden Party have to be so damn…secretive?) but I really want to show you some Anna Calvi, and it does go quite well with the mood of this outfit, I think. Do listen, and let me know what you think of her…

I can't walk in heels for long, either. My feet want to be bare or wrapped in comfy trainers.
Love the playsuit!

Awww yay!! Most of my work recently has been based on pulp fiction - Thank you for taking the time to have a look at some of my work :)

You can do so much more on a large scale but it takes forever to fill up :') - I look forward to seeing it though, I love posts about peoples creative work! I might start a scrapbook also, how do you set it out? (Do you just stick anything anywhere that you want or do you have a theme?) -xoxo

Sorry I'm crazy filling up your comments on this post. Love manga - first time I saw Kill Bill was when I was 9 (not really age appropriate) I got Tarantino and manga style cartoons obsessed! Theres so many images in magazines that I love but I HATE butchering up my 'Vogues' and 'LOVEs'. Do you just use any journals you find?

 
At 23 February 2013 at 14:18 , Blogger Vilte said...

Oh my gosh, are you like my long lost blogger sister? I watched 'true romance' yesterday which wasn't directed by him but was written by him, so it sort of counts! I think I shall be 'harvesting' those ones then. Wish I had an industrial size photocopier so I could photocopy the images without ripping them out, but with a normal scanner/printer the images always come out with that pink hue :')
