|vivienne westwood black jersey dress, susan james jacket, rocket dog shoes, grandmother's leather gloves, new look hairslide, anonymous black tights|
|exclusive photo shoot location: in front of the garden shed|
|preparing for the attacking crows|
Well, while I was there I picked up a vintage dress, a Vivienne Westwood Anglomania black jersey dress, and a Susan James coat thing. God, listen to me, I "picked up" a vintage dress. Reaching new levels of pretentiousness there, guys. I'll stop with the writing and stick with pictures. Not that they're any better.
|these are my new school shoes (aka the only shoes I really wear regularly)|
Yknow, I actually don't like posts with lots of photos that never seem to end (on other people's blogs *cough*) but..I'm terrible at whittling the selection down. So here are a few more!

|outfit in the mirror photo! takes me back to last year..|
|bow hairslides are my new lazy hairstyle|
I have to go find my old writing style. I think I left it somewhere around here.

|with my eternally stylish footwear choices|
These are my dreams socks. Seriously. Look at all the multicoloured joy!
P.S Complete filler post, sorry. My forehead feels like one giant bruise and my jaw, mystifyingly, aches whenever I move it. So, yeah. Went shopping today, I promise that (one day) I'll do an outfit post!

-greyish cardigan from my grandmother
-grey wool skirt from my mother
-flower print tights from River Island
-brown leather oxford shoes from my aunt
-red fake glasses from Taiwan
-floral bow from Primark
That's possibly the least cool outfit I could've put together, as half
of the clothes were given to me by members of my family, but you know
what? I'm not very cool anyway. But you knew that already.
Anyway, this outfit started with the skirt. It was long, wooly, grey
and reminiscent of something a...more mature teacher at my school
would wear. In other words, I loved it. This entire outfit is really
quite unflattering but I really don't care.
Oh, and as I write this I'm sitting in Beijing Airport (that's
probably not the official name but..oh wait, it is.) waiting for my
flight so sorry if I sound rushed/harried/exhausted. *shriek of
frustration* This writing isn't good enough for Teen Vogue, is it? I
sound so unprofessional and well, I sound like..me. On a bad day.
Have to put that in so that it goes onto Fashion Click.
I may re-write this.

I'm back to being proxy-less and having to email posts onto the blog.
But that's not important. Nobody wants to hear about my winzip woes *sob*
-grey scarf from taobao.com
-American Apparel white multi layered reversible petticoat (worn as a
top kind of thing)
-leather skirt (originally my grandmother's..I KNOW RIGHT.)
-grey flower print tights from River Island
-Clarks black patent ballet flats
-a loose shirt with swirly colours whose brand name escapes me (unseen
because it's underneath the petticoat.)
So, adventures in alternate uses for the petticoat! I really love my
(oh how I relish being able to call a petticoat MINE) petticoat
because, as you know, I love all things frothy and fluffy and
dramatic, but I didn't want to wear it as a skirt AGAIN. So I put it
on my shoulders, and enjoyed the general swinginess of it.
Oh ye gods, I have a headache.
P.S I'm not completely focused right now so the post may have
been..okay, nevermind, I can barely construct a sentence.

|new H&M flagship store. what does flagship even mean? i just hear it a lot. it seemed appropriate for such a large store. anyway, yes. same building as zara, uniqlo, stradivarius, pull & bear, bershka, etc. new excuses to spend money!|
|i was under-dressed for a rather cold day. bag from zara, old navy tank top, sweater thing from alien street, jeggings from uniqlo, and pink shoes (better picture below) from yashow.|
|the aforementioned pink shoes.|
|me in my flying jacket from UNIQLO, bought in a moment of fear of the outside howling trans-siberian winds. literally.|
|and THE WHOLE COLLECTION OF ALL THE BEATLES CDS EVER.|
...i took some photos and never uploaded them. the perfect ingredient for sunday evening posting, too lazy to do anything else. not that it matters much for a blog with the readership of one.

|jumper from Armani, clutch from Louis Vuitton, sheer tights from a random department store, skirt from Next, shoes from Clarks|
|this was not posed, I promise! it was just a combination of my famously odd facial expressions and my general inelegance|
|the background is..a curtain. looks okay though, right?|
|I'm pretty hard on my shoes.|

|sometime in october, when the weather wasn't suicidal. fallacy couldn't be more pathetic than this.|
|it got hotter and sunnier, much to my discontent, so the next layer down. neon yellow cardigan (sweater? cardigan? i don't know...) from yashow market, bag from zara, and shift dress from uniqlo.|
|note the awesome piano keys design along the side?|
naomi (if you haven't guessed already)

hannah, as a boy. i overheard this conversation:
math teacher: oh hannah, you're a boy!
math teacher: oh hannah, that is very brave of you!
math teacher: brave...being a boy...you know...
math teacher: *backs away slowly, giggling in a nervous fashion until he is out of firing range*
this is normally how conversations between teachers and hannah go. i think they find her endearing/intimidating/amusing all at once.
yes. and i was a '20s flapper', basically an excuse to wear my flapper dress from century 21 department store in new york, WOO. i got many compliments, and sadly, it was like, the only time i got to wear that dress because after that it was put in the washing machine by someone....not using any particularly active tenses here guys...and now resembles something my dog tried to eat, then spat out. it's very very sad. pictures will come in time.
PS if anyone noticed how crappy this particular post is, well, i am searching far and wide the length of my room to find my camera/camera charger/ usb cable as usual. in the wise words of yogi berra, it ain't over till it's over. if that has any relation to what i was talking about at all.
That book with the bow and (the pride of my collection of useless things) the giant paperclip is How Sassy Changed My Life. A really interesting book, it's one of the books I'm reading/re-reading (along with He's a Stud, She's a Slut; The Feminine Mystique and Girl Power).
This is completely off topic but if anyone wants to talk about feminism, email me! It would be good to learn more about it and have conversations with people who..understand it and identify as feminists.
Anyway, I don't believe this bow has been on the blog before! note- I may be wrong because I've been told that I have the memory of a goldfish with a concussion.
