I'm currently obsessing about building my 2012 winter wardrobe.
It will emcompass fur, glitter, lace, velvet, polka dots, brocade, hats,
flowers, fancy tights and vintage dresses. I've been mostly shopping
online (sometimes from my bed). Etsy still rules supreme, and
Modcloth and ASOS still feature heavily, but atm I'm wild about UK
Topshop, and last night I put in a big-arse Forever 21 order. Happee.
I don't talk about this that much, as it really has nothing to do with my
personal style, and at this stage, that is what my blog is, a style blog.
Anyway, "this" is the fact that my lovely long-term partner is female.
We decided maybe four years ago that we would like to start a family. It's
been a long, uphill battle but we are getting closer by the day and
hopefully this year, we'll have some exciting news to share with you all.
I'm doing a weekend workshop, soon, to learn how to make vintage-style
textured hats and half-hats, which I'm so jazzed about. We'll be making
our first hat over that weekend, so I'm busy researching and trying to
work out what I want my first millinery masterpiece (lol) to look like.
We've been invited to a delicious Tasmanian winter wedding in June, which
we're really looking forward to. The couple have been together for a long time
and they are one of the sweetest couples. Also, I get to buy myself a new dress
for the occassion (okay, so I've already purchased it - '60s, ice blue). Weddings
are a great excuse to go all out and put together a super-special outfit head-to-toe.
1980s compilation tapes. We listen to these all day at work and have amassed
quite the colelction. 1987 Right onTrack is our all time fav and it gets at least
one spin daily. It includes such gems as Lean on Me, Male Stripper, Boom
Boom Boom, and Right on Track. If anyone has any eg 1984 Hits Huge, 1982
Out of the Blue, 1982 With a Bullet etc, let me know, and if you don't have a
need for them, we'll buy them from you.
Due to seasonal changes I'll be swapping my breakfast from muesli to
porridge, and my lunch from tuna and salad to soup. I'm trying to cut down
on caffeine due to baby-making attempts-that's my only vice and I'm a true addict.
I could nap every day. I try to squeeze a two-hour nap in every Saturday
and Sunday and if I could just work out how to fit one, daily, into my
working week, I would be the happiest little camper alive.
I discovered the "Currently" post published by Danielle on her
Sometimes Sweet blog. She's happy for everyone to give it
a bash. You should too, it's super-fun and I've found it
interesting to read lots of other people's takes on this post.
