Fashion from a highschooler's perspective. That is all.

I apologize for the sideways photo. But at any rate, my gorgeous new necklace is above. It hasn't been off my neck since god knows when, all I need is a tag with my name/address/socialsecuritynumber and I'll never be lost again. But then again, not such a good idea.
A bigass watch from Aldo. One of two boxing day spoils (Seriously, I feel like I'm getting old. Last year I could shop for hours and come out with six bags of quality crap and now I'm exhausted after buying two items. Two!).
The face is bigger than my cheek, and the plastic links clink together since my wrist is too small for it. Nothing could be better. Oversized everything, for life!

- A red bead necklace, charming because of its' dark red colour and perfect length.
- Body Shop atomiser (I plan on creating a collection of atomisers. Reason? No reason)
- Black maryjane heels
- Cranberry viscose scarf
- Audrey Hepburn Treasures hardcover !
- Marie Antoinette soundtrack
Clearly, I am too spoiled.

Peeping out from a pair of wool trousers, or being the highlight in an all-black ensemble, even with the most feminine of skirts. It's the perfect mix of overconsumption and restraint.

Revlon nail polish in a burgundy shade, with a slight metallic overlay
Clinique lipstick (A Different Shade of Grape) that's curiously the exact same shade as the aforesaid nailpolish and a cameo ring of mine
3/4 sleeve tops
Gift swapping, and eating all of the chocolate in the household before Christmas
School officially finishes on December 22nd, so expect actual posts and more frequent (I promise, I promise for real this time!) posting.

After finding articles/feature in magazines (Swindle and Nylon respectively), my idolizing has been turned to Lee Miller. She was an amazing photographer in the 20s and 30s, and (in my humble opinion), really captured the essence of the war-torn, flapper-girl era.Discovered by Conde-Nast, became a model, studied portraiture and photography, became muse/photography assistant to Man Ray, and then became a 'tographer herself. I find it amazing that she was able to accomplish this in the 20s. In the 60s, it wouldn't seem unnatural, but back then, women were still being ostracized and the fact that she lived such a glamourous life is pretty darn impressing.

It's over-saturation, I know it. You get so excited for a certain trend to hit the stores (ahem, ankle boots) that when they actually do get there, the love affair's all over.
Everything the stores do, Etsy does it better. The handcrafted jewellery and well, everything, is just so amazing and cannot be beat. I'm totally in love with this necklace.Can't you imagine wearing a skirt as such with a gorgeous swing coat and bright flats?
The only time you can get away with delicate, low-cut flats is in spring. Summer is too warm for closed-toe shoes, and fall/winter is just too wet and cold.
Hi, can you follow me home? I can't afford you right now, but I swear you'll be worn frequently and lovingly. Ah, the joys for perusing Anthropologie.

The boot has potential though, which makes the whole thing so much more sad. It could probably work as a copy (excuse me, interpretation) of those crazy Lacoste puffa boots that were all over the Lacoste shows.
Why the weird moon-boot soles? A sleeker, less chunky sole, without all those plastic criss-crossing action would be nice. And the puffiness could be nicer without the dangly pompoms and a longer length.
Sometimes, it's just nice to bitch unnecessarily at a pair of shoes.
