It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts, which I’m very sorry for. Fashion is actually one of the only things I’m passionate about, so I’m much remiss to keep you waiting. The list of my passions follows: 1) Writing, 2) Fashion, 3) Travel, 4) Luxury, and 5) Tom Daley.
Luckily for me, I’m able to indulge in all but Tom Daley on a regular basis. I’ve got his 2014 calendar on my wall, though, so I guess that counts. By the way, nobody can rock a bowler hat like Tom — like seriously, it’s amazing. I’m really looking forward to July…sorry, I got off track.
Anyway, I write every day and you can expect to see something available for purchase from me by year’s end, I think. I’m going to experiment with self-publishing a novella (or short story? What’s the difference? Bear with…bear with…I guess it’s some unloved child in the middle. Not quite a novella, but within the realms of short story.) whilst I seek an agent for my other writings.
When it comes to travel, I’m planning a trip to Europe this summer. I hope I get to see my beloved Paris again (how I miss her), London, Cornwall, and perhaps Romania. I’d like to see more and do more, but my salary only gets me so far. PAY ME MORE.
I indulge in luxury whenever I can. As my should-be friend Karl Lagerfeld once said:
And like any discipline, I devote myself to it. Just wait until you see the post I’m working on about my remodeled bedroom. Luxury doesn’t begin to do it justice. I need to do a few more repairs in there, and then I’ll show it to you. I do expect you to swoon from the eleganza.
And now, to fashion!
Clothes are my main weakness. I can’t resist them and I have no guilt about whipping out my credit card to buy the things I need. Alison clued me in that sunglasses like the ones I’ve been dying for:
are available at Target. I LOVE TARGET! I bought them. I look ama-zayn. Alison is getting married in about a month, so I’ve been getting ready for the wedding. New suit, check, taking it to the tailor soon to get a few adjustments. Just need to find the right shirt to wear beneath it. I’m really excited to show you the shoes I ordered to go with it. Remember when I saw these Yves Saint Laurent?
Did you swoon? I swooned. Well, it’s sad, but I can’t afford those shoes. I’ve been looking nonstop for a pair of affordable studded shoes and the other night, I finally found them online. Here they are:
Okay, enough updates on me, let’s forge on to the outfits I want.
I’m getting close to being able to pull off this hair, for which I’m super excited. Mine’s currently in the awkward “long but not long enough” stage. Also, I’d wear this to a weekend retreat in an English cottage where I’d walk through the moors and look brooding whilst plotting a novel.
I’ve bookmarked this outfit for one of my days on a transatlantic Cunard cruise. I’ve been waiting all my life for that trip! Hopefully I can pull that off for my grand return from Europe. Fingers crossed. (Somebody should really fund these trips. Having to pay for it all myself is exhausting.)
Burberry and London, two of my favorite things. I just want to be draped in Burberry every day. I’m obsessed with the heart shirt Harry Styles wore to the premiere of the One Direction movie. It’s out of stock, of course, but I am willing to go bankrupt for that shirt. And, look at the cuffs on those trousers. AH! LIFE SHOULD BE LIKE THIS!
