Sooo if anyone has any suggestion as to how to wear the skirt they would be greatly received. I realise it's a floral tiered skirt and can't be that hard to wear but i'm finding it very difficult indeed. Please try and help. Thanks very much!
This time last year me and my sister were screaming at each other that 'we're not gonna get one!', 'What have you done to the computer screen you bloody idiot?!'. In fact we screamed so much our dog started to wine and go a bit loopy out of fear. I've warned my mother and little sister to get out of the house this evening so as not to get screamed at.
Putting all that aside. And presuming i get a ticket. I cannot wait. Last year i had the best time of my life! It's like a town where all rules and stuff go out of the window, everyone talks to anyone. It's indescribable really.
The rumoured line-up include The Killers, Rage Against the Machines and Metallica. The Killers would be unbelievable amazing! Oooo i cannot wait any longer!!
I do hope myself and Susan see a lot of you stylish people there.....

We saw Metric a couple of years back in November '06. She was wearing, i seem to remember, a grey glittery all in one. T'was so amazing. She just stud on the edge of the stage, kind of leaning out into the crowd, for like ten minutes with everyone grabbing her legs and stuff. While the rest of the band carried on playing.

1. I would have to bleach it first, I've tried this before and it went the colour of a solero ice cream.
2. I would stand out more and would clash (actually who am I kidding, I live to clash)
3. ROOTS! again with the attempted blonde situation, dark brown roots did not create an 'interesting' effect, I looked a fool! and my hair grows about an inch a week.
But I want to cast these doubts aside and throw caution to the wind when I see pictures like this!

Then I saw this post on hannah couture. Another thing that I had been considering, damn olsen twins and trendy face hunter hipsters, is a fur coat. I was unsure but now I'll be dreaming of them. Charity shops watch out, here I come! (Photo from Vogue Nippon, October 2007)
Johnathan Jacobsen. No idea where I found this guy, another blog I suspect. So if the owner of the blog is reading this, my apologies for stealing him but thank you because it has brought some joy into my life. Maybe not joy, but more thoughts. http://www.flickr.com/photos/loganart/

This woman, whoever she may be, looks soo cool. Just effortless. It was on a page in the new H&M magazine. i wish i could look so cool in such an outfit.The composition of these two images is quite clever, if i do say so myself. I honestly didn't realise what i'd done until a day or so after i put them up. You can think of your own caption for this one. They're two seperate images form two totally different magazines, one is a recent one, the other is a few years old. They were made for each other i reckon.

I think my skirt says 'Bananas'

I am very excited especially as Dominic Cooper will be playing the Bridegroom. He's in Starter for 10 and History Boys. There's something about him that i like, i really hope he sings in the film t'would be amusing.
Oh my there were some disasters.

These £150 diesel jeans are just fabulous. The way they've styled them is despicable but looking past that these would look lovely on, me thinks. I never usually look at Diesel stuff, i subconciously associate it with market rip-off versions of their stuff. Not that the real stuff is much nicer to be honest. I was actually looking for a denim dress i'd seen in a magazine by Diesel but when i couldn't find that i thought i'd look at their jeans because i really need some new ones that fit me perfectly. All my current ones bag at the knee, have massive rips in them or are too bigor small. None of them fit properly. So I'm on a mission to find some affordable, well fitting and skinny jeans. These would be lovely and i imagine perfect.
Now this beauty is from Urban Outfitters for £38. I love florals. I love love love skirts. I reckon this would look amazing with my 'stomp' boots, which are doc martiny.
I also stumbled upon this Paul & Joe dress, whilst looking for another dress on asos.com that I'd seen in the same magazine as i had the denim dress, this magazine proved to be very useful, i also couldn't find the dress i was looknig for but i found this one instead. Now wrap around dresses are always a friend to those of us with a curvy figure I think and I'm a sucker for stripes. I ust say i really do like it. But at £140 it's going to have to stay on my wishlist which is always soooo long. Hey, if anyone wants to give me £350 i suppose i'll take it off their hands. The burden that it is and all.
2. Even if this was meant to be humourous it was most likely in a sarcastic way.

Longo's? I really do not know what to say.
Anyway that was entirely irrelevant. This post has been a long time in the pipeline as I have so many frickin folders I couldn't remeber where I put the photos. Me and Pamela decided it was high time we did a bit of customization and stuff. It was our friend's birthday the other week (she is the third musketeer as it were) and I thought dip-dying her some tights would be a good idea as she saw and loved them. Flying Saucer was my main source of inspiration. As it was it didn't go all to well and I dyed my central finger and tip of my thumb. This could only happen to me. I wore gloves! How did I just dye one finger? No one will ever know. I have all the luck.
Check out our bitchin high-tec equipment.
It is a fair assessment to say we got carried away. I started with the tights, then the tshirt then I went and got my skirt. Then the paint splashing.
Oh how I love irony. The thing we set out to do in the first place didn't actually work. I was going to post a picture of the tights but they literally have not changed. They are the Topshop dove grey ones, and dove grey they remain. It's stupid, they look dyed in the picture but when they dried it all went a bit wrong.
The skirt is a bit liney but you can't tell that much. The success of the day was the tshirts. My friend asked if I did it myself because you don't see much tie-dye in the shops. Well well my dear you will soon. By this I don't mean I will be selling it.
I do recommend paint splashing as a stress reliever, the action with the arm is hilarious. Jackson Pollock must have been an angry man with good upper body strength.
Thus concludes me and Pamela's foray into dying and such. Some good times, some bad. The paint splashed top can be seen in my little photoshoot, I'm worried about wearing it out as it sort of looks like I do art and do not wash my clothes, which is partially true. The bit about doing art, I'm not a binner.
Skins tonight kids.

I'm thinking that at this moment this is the most perfect skirt in existence in the world.
I think the sex and the city opening credits had a profound effect on everyone with even a remote interest in fashion. I want to wear it with a band tshirt and lots of jewellery. It reminds me of an ellegirl photoshoot with ballerina's. I did love that magazine, one day it just disappeared. Bad times.

1. Leopard print pencil skirt: Quite frankly I bet your thinking thinking this is horrific but I have been wanting one after I saw one in Teen Vogue and I would make it awesome and non-emo, well I would try. And I would wear it in an ironic way, just like my pink velour tracksuit top. Yep that's right. Pamela has a whole turquoise velour tracksuit. Please stay with us, this is NOT our normal attire. Anyway. think 50's style, or with a loose white tshirt.http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/leopard-print-pencil-skirt-size-8-NEW-with-tags-punk_W0QQitemZ370032537619QQihZ024QQcategoryZ314QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
3. (Long) waistcoat. I keep looking in charity shops for a man's waistcoat, thinking they will be longer, but they're all a bit large in the belly. I'm going for the Etro S/S 07 look here. I'm willing to bet several pennies this would actually look very very bad on me but you get the general idea. Mmm. Camel.
4. High waisted skirts of any variety. I used to hate anything high waisted but I have discovered I often hate something with a passion and then fall in love with it. I keep hoiking up my low waisted skirts, this often has slutty results, but hey I wear tights. Sometimes several pairs. Yorkshire is chilly ok.http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/cute-high-waisted-floral-vintage-topshop-style-skirt_W0QQitemZ220212477067QQihZ012QQcategoryZ314QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
Thank you everyone who commented on those last two posts, you are all extremely lovely. I was well embarrased about them, but you have all made me very happy. Cheearz!

Rolling out those barrels took a year I tell you. Haha. Plug socket, that's what you get for using your kitchen as a set.
If you think it's crap or have any suggestions do tell me, I enjoy constructive criticism.
