Post-Holiday Musings

January 4, 2013

So the new year has come and been forgotten (almost). We’re back to our own dreary little existence, carving our way through this overcrowded space. Whatever resolution that has been made will soon be erased by the daily humdrum reality throws at us. It’s always the same year after year, hoping that it will be better than the last, but who are we kidding? Noone, save us.

Naaaaw I was just kidding. How are you people doing this holiday? I’ve been enjoying mine tremendously but I shan’t bore you with details, just a few extra photos. We good? Yeah we good.

So on the day I wore all this drapey mountain of clothes, I was headed to this art space (which you can see faintly behind the poles) to have coffee because I’m pretentious like that. The surrounding area was so nice I decided to bug my boyfriend to take a photo of me because I thought I look omg-so blogworthy plz. And then I strutted my thang around the park, thank god there was barely anyone around except a few passerbys so I didn’t have to pretend I was doing everything else but having my photos taken, much. The main victim was Louis (boyfriend) whose blood was clearly the favourite fodder for persistent pestilent mosquitoes.

After a few rounds of strutting on the same spot (again, thank god the park was empty), I got tired and sat down and took out my phone, when clickity snap, Louis snapped this photo of me in which I decided was worthy enough to get on this blog out of the 43873895 photos that were taken. Yeah all you bloggers know what I’m talking about. So here’s me looking almost nonchalant with a phone that is not an Iphone because all my money goes towards building my steez and having pretentious coffee.

Okay so stay tuned for the next round of holiday report. Or not. I’ll be catching up with all your blogs and new clothes bit by bit. Toodles.

    Happy New Year!

    What beautiful surroundings. Surely you’re not pretentious if you’re surrounded by a place like this?!

    Like always a fantastic outfit. You are so brave with volume, something I hope one day to be able to play with more. It would be great to see the airy volume your coat created in motion as you strutted around taking photos!

    Half Jedi, half monk…all awesome. I love the kimono, such a great accent piece.

    There is something very striking in the juxtaposition here: Head-to-toe black layers against a tropical paradise. You know I love that…

    hahaha, I’m glad you’re not all that pessimistic as it appeared in the first paragraph… but even if you were, so what?!
    Anyway, glad you had lovely holidays. Looking smashing.
    And I’m so familiar with all that picture taking process. My husband can get so frustrated sometimes haha

    Happy new year! Absolutely love your commentary on this one. I think my boyfriend wonders if we can go anywhere anymore without me whipping out my camera and asking him for a kodak moment.

    I don’t even understand why I wasn’t following your blog until now. I was wondering why I don’t have any updates of your blog on my dash!

    You’re looking so so wicked in this outfit! DAMN!

    Also can’t believe you’re selling your Comme des Garcons PVC leather dress! why? you would look killer in it!

      Thank you Aya :)

      Unfortunately I can’t afford to keep all my stuff. Some things gotta go. Sigh.

    Wishing you many more goth ninja moments in 2013. Your adept layering is always an inspiration (in that heat no less).

    SICK. Haha and I’ve tried an outdoor outfit shot once or twice before, but being London, as soon as I get my camera out everyone stops to look at you…so back to the tripod in the spare room for me! Ridiculously late, but Happy New Year :)
