Mood tho. Doesn’t this sound like a song that I wrote once upon a time? I love to pretend.(This song is from Walk the Line – the movie about Johnny Cash & June Carter. I love. I watched it with Kitty a million years ago, when his room was painted spider-man red.)

I’ve been binging lots of Zoella videos. I’m excited to see her book on Hostessing!

I was reminiscing about Matthew Cooke when I took these, he used to photograph for GodsGirls. This was his colour palette. I don’t have too many memories about GodsGirls.com but more than anything I remember the beautiful colours. I always find that the photography and film of every time-period are marked by the use of particular colour palettes and temperatures.

I went through a period of using a lot of creams and browns at one point in my photo-taking ambitions… Now I prefer to be inconsistent with my use of colour. I want to photograph more – but I want the colours in my photographs to reflect the mood I’m trying to portray rather than use colour to signify a “style”. I think – just personally – that when it comes to photography – it’s your choice of framing that indicates style. Colour is a language and I think, if you limit yourself, you limit your ability to communicate and express. For me, art has before anything been about¬† having a means of expressing myself.

I sang this (sang is a poor word to describe it, singing isn’t my thing) in a group skype call once… a million years ago to two of my friends. I know they loved me because they responded very politely to that tone-deaf warbling

Oh – this version is so much fun. June-Japan-Fan donning the kind of sleeves I like forgets the lyrics

I’m usually the kind of person who won’t wear an item of clothing if it has creases in it – and as a general rule… I am personally offended by guys who don’t iron their shirts … but I actually quite like the creases in this little playsuit.. at least for photographs. It’s kind of ~structural, in how the light hits the fabric. Isn’t it weird how something can be “structural” and yet not “structured“?? #vpoetic #suchastuteobservation #meta4

I love this, super long ribbon. I’ve always felt that ribbons on clothes should be especially long. I watch too much Anime. (Not really, it’s impossible)

When I first looked at this spiral ribbon I was kind of irritated and thought to iron it before I tried the dress on, but actually … imagine if they sold ribbon that looked like this… perhaps they do… but I’ve never seen it

Thoughts on a playsuit I like to pretend that I co-created – the way that the dress should be fastened only occurred to me after I took these photos and I really like it. I refastened it and it gave the little dress so much more shape.

I’ve just sent these scribbles off to be pattern-cut and then I’m sending them to Syria.

Lee Mcqueen talks about a Ring of Fire briefly in this interview and it reminds me of that time Kitty sued his University and given more money than he had ever had in his entire life … of all the things he could’ve bought, he bought an Alexander McQueen ring…

M A U V E

When I went to Fashion School, I learned that fashion is transient – where style endures. So in a sense; I prefer not to be fashionable at all. Perhaps thats why I dropped out.

That said, I have to confess: I’ve finally fallen victim to the Slider trend.
I’d like to introduce you to my very first pair. EVER.

I find them both subtle and garish, obnoxious yet understated. SO ME. I love them!

My intention was to exclusively wear them at home but I fell for them so, that they’ve had a few adventures about London with me this week. Most notably I swapped them for a pair of six inch heels at Swan Lake, when, during an interval I had a cigarette break that lasted a little-too-long and I had to rush back to my seat. Imagine me running through the lavish hallways of the Royal Opera House donning these silly things. A steward sweetly told me he had a pair of his own at home, in black of course. We both laughed. After the ballet, I reluctantly changed back into my heels for dinner.

While I’ve always been a slipper person, (I spent the first six months of Film school – which I did not drop out of – almost exclusively wearing a suuuuuper cheap pair of black sheepskin slip-ons everywhere throughout my campus) (I’m sure if I were to expend some effort I could recall various moments-of-significance in my life by mentally drawing up a slipper-timeline of sorts, and perhaps, I will do that some time) I have to admit that I’m a slider-convert. I don’t say this lightly: I’ve spent my life abhorring and resenting these shoes vehemently.

Now I’ve decided I’d like to start collecting them.
