It’s that time of the year again, when the days get shorter and outfit photos become a nightmare to do. The weather goes cold and suddenly blankets become one of the most appealing items in the household. Days get dark and all I want to do is snuggle up under a nice warm fleecy blanket, with some Netflix and chill. Not what you are thinking, I really mean watching films and not doing anything useful.
As I mentioned and posted about last week, I spent a weekend in Brighton with the hubby. As we don’t live in the same country, our honeymoon continues! Brighton was the perfect place to spend a nice and full weekend, doing what we enjoy the most – sharing travelling experiences together. This is what I wore, on the 2 days we spent together.
Pleather Jacket – H&M, Sequin Dress – Topshop, via Ebay, Long Sleeve tee and Tights – Primark, Glittery Trainers – Springfield, Cat Bag – Ahcahcum Muchacha
As you can see it was very windy and my hair was made into a mess. That didn’t stop me from having my photo taken in front of this beautiful gypsy wagon.
On Sunday the sun smiled at us and we could enjoy a little snooze on the beach. Headscarf – Zara, Pleather Jacket and Bruce Springsteen tee– H&M, Necklace – Tatty Devine (on sale), Skater Skirt – Ebay, Red Boots – Dr Scholl (via Tk Maxx).
Andrea from Teetoo and I decided we wanted to do something fun together a while ago. Life does tend to get in the way sometimes and it took us a few months to actually get off our arses and plan something concrete. As we have an ocean between us we decided that the best way would be to collaborate on the blog! So here it is, what we hope will be a regular feature. We both agree on a theme, style it our own way and post it on our blogs, bam!
For this occasion Andrea suggested Crystal Castles, as it is a band she tells me she has become fond of after I posted about them here. As Andrea tells me she has tickets to see them live in Toronto, I imagined what I could be wearing if we went to the show together… I went on youtube to get some inspo and watched a couple of their videos and looked in my closet… I wanted to wear something that not only evoked what the band themselves wear but also what the music conveys to me – their sound is bouncy and danceable but also dark at the same time. Some people do interpretative dance, we create outfits – to each their own! So this is what I came up with:
Pleather jacket – H&M, Long blackwool dress – Vintage Jaeger, thrifted from Age UK (remember this?), Totally Mental Rainbow Flatforms – Office outlet on Ebay
I took these photos last Sunday and tried to look as cheerful as possible under the chill and the rain (see the raindrop on the lens on the first photo? The things I do for the love of art haha). Can’t wait for Spring to take photos under the sun, skip over the daisies and the green grass with the cute bunnies and have the birds come dress me every morning. Oh wait, that was Cinderella.
So yeah, this is our first project together. What do you think we should be interpreting through our clothes the next time? Any suggestions/requests?
