Drip Drop. Yup, that's the sound I'm currently making. If you happen to come across a beige puddle it might be me, melted away. It's so damn hot outside right now. I have no idea where this heat came from all of a sudden. Not 2 weeks ago I was almost freezing to death on Walpurgis night and now I'm slowly melting away.
Oh my. What a week! I've had so much to do all week long. I'm pretty much exhausted. Tonight I slept for over 12 hours straight. Really.
I've been working, painting, going to shows and plays, had 2 full days of shopping and sightseeing with my father and on wednesday I had a shoot for Swedish Elle Magazine.
yes, that's right. A shoot for Elle! Wearing a gown by Jean Paul Gaultier!
It's so insane I almost can't believe it. This was my first proper modeling experience, and I got to do Gaultier... I Think I need to pinch myself yet again.
This was another dress during the shoot. I just love how the embroidery looks like old tattoos. The embroidery was done with the tiniest of silk threads on such a sheer material I was afraid of tearing it by mistake just by tuching it.
I'm so happy about the spring right now. Today I Went out for a walk and the sun felt positively warm on my face and on my back. Spring is probably my favourite season, just because it's getting warm but the air still has that chill in it that makes you appreciate the sun all the more.
I took out my hat today. I've not been wearing it since the snow started falling last year. feathers and snow don't go together that well. or they do in nature but I'm no bird, I forget to preen the feathers.
I love my hat...
I just hope the temperature rises a lil' bit more so I can start running again. I really love to run, and I usually run like every second day but not during the Winter. The chilly air makes my asthma flare up like a mofo and I refuse to wear a "snout". I've been keeping busy with yoga but my legs are really starting to itch for a run.
I like fashion. There is no denying that. I also like photographs of fashion. Fashion stories from Vogue or those little lookbooks that brands put together to promote their new collections and the feel behind them. This is from one of those little lookbooks. Sisters of the Black Moon has a new collection of basic, draped blacks called Disir. I love it. I love the clothes, but perhaps even more I love the photos. I love the dreamy yet real feel in the pictures. I love the shapes and the fact that they've dared to keep many things that nowadays are never seen after post-productio (photoshopping).Like the models facial texture, the lines and crinkles her flesh makes and the somewhat bony ribcage. A beautiful body in beautiful clothes.
"The Ragged Priest"
It's trashed almost beyond recognition, cropped and black, and it's perfect. It's in a really nice material, sweatshirty but very soft, almost velvety on the inside, so it's still warm even if it's not much left of it. And it has a really nice name. A slashed sweater with the same name as the main character in American Psycho? I find that fun... I'm macabre.
The shade is called Oil Slick, and it's just like that, a sheer slick of black oil with a slight silver glitter that gives a result somewhat close to my favourite lipgloss of all time; Lancome's Piha. Sadly that one was very limited so I'm only using mine at very special occasions.
I love how it mutes the colours of my lips, looking slightly gothic but not as hard as a black lipstick does.
I will probably take a better picture whenever I can find that damn camera charger...
