General Studying

i had an exam today, so i went into college. it's odd to think soon, i won't have a reason to go back. i'll miss this nice rusty man, he lives outside the art department. he once was shiny; now he's not so pristine, but he has much more character.

top and silk tie - recent handmedown via great aunt (vintage)
skirt and bag - ancient handmedowns via sister (Primark)
leggings - H&M
socks - dad's
shoes - Miss Selfridge


my friend went on a date tonight, we're eagerly awaiting the report. whilst she was getting ready, i realised just how many romance-related items there are dotted round her room...but i can't complain, as two of the cupid-inspired culprits are the brooches i made (modelled by emily and sophie).


the first is made from PVC and felt scraps and old lace trim, the other from cut-offs from an old top, stuffed with foam.







two embarrassing things happened today; somewhat ironically, in view of this necklace, i was locked out of my house and when walking home, part of my skirt was caught on my bag...
good job i wore leggings.

today overplayed: me and you - slow club
