Style PinUp of the Week

As a recent subscriber to love film, the first dvd to arrive through the letter box was that of Themla and Louise. As well as lots of denim and cropped band t shirts the film also features a naked semi naked brad pitt. enough to brighten up anyones friday evening.

As a result of this I have been out and about the charity shop circut, searching high and low for the perfect ladies jean, to destory. I have since made the lucky lee cooper high waisted pair into a lovely pair of shorts *photos to come

more film fashion

first there was the devil wears prada..then the september issue, now
tom ford has decided to put his input into the world of film. I just watched the trailer. and it most certainly looks promising. who knew these fashion titans had other talents ON TOP of their already amazing fashion skills. makes me feel quite inadequate. and very jealous.

The Google oracle

Still no nearer to completing presentation for dissertation, but fast approaching the world record for 'most efficient procrastination' I have found a very inspiring person on the web. His name Christopher Monro DeLorenzo His many projects include a illustrated keyboard and the very entertaining 'unfinished google search' to see what other people have searched in the past. Questions ranged from a very philosophical 'is there..a god' to 'is there..a way i can get this popular guy pregnant.'

Shoulders are the new black

I was just surfing the net, doing my usual 'doing everything other than dissertation' pass time. and then. wool and the gang appeared. and made my life exciting again. feeding me with more shoulder inspiration. I think its about time I start knitting.

shoulder pad saga

my obsession with the shoulder has materialised itself in a little craft session, that quickly became another craft session and another.. before I knew it I had spent quite a substantial amount on shoulder/bra pads (the bra pads give a different, stronger more defined shape..also there were no shoulder pads) Velcro and lace.

HOWEVER, as we all know SHOULDERS ARE THE SILHOUETTE of the season, so its an investment. This (what should have been) 1 day project has continued to linger over my head since mid august. there were some complications with the sourcing of materials ON OXFORD STREET of all places, but Ive finally finished them, they really don't take long and don't require much skill, if you would like a go. I am just the queen of procrastination and starting 'projects' that I never finish.
I document my journey. so here we are at the very beginning. (a very good place to start)
bra pad..clearly
the lace..

the laced up 'boob'
which I have attached to a plain white tee.

while I am at it..

other people worth checking out:
wild beasts: good band: good video.

i just cant get enough.

hello, apologies for the lack of blogging, we have had some 'inconviniences' with our internet provider who rather than the allocated 2 weeks instillation it took over a month. thats right 3rd year student with no internet. Its now safe to say the library staff and myself are on first name terms.

AS i was saying, Ellie Goulding. Amazing, saw her on Jools Holland and am now in luff.
