today, i started the terrifying task of sorting out my wardrobe. i am a very messy person. very very messy.
anyway, my wardrobe is now completely cleared out, and things are organised, with stuff still to sort out neatly (well...neatly-ish) boxed at the bottom.
i've still got an under-bed box, and a huge packing case to sort out, most of which will be sent to charity shops/ebayed. i will take some pictures of things, and if anyone sees anything they might be interested, let me know and i will take proper pictures of them for you to see. plus i'll sell them cheap.
anyway. with all of my clothes out of my wardrobe and in very neat piles, i decided to play with some pieces that i rarely/have never worn out before, and my new skirt and blazer. here are my hilarous results.
PLEASE NOTE. i look like a twat in all of these. i wasn't wearing any make up, and it was an 'i need makeup day'. the later pictures are particularly cringe-worthy...but i'm not getting all of my clothes out of my wardrobe to re-shoot...
reading Murakami- READ SOME OF HIS WORK. i love love love him.
plus he's Japanese. I'm not going to go into my serious weird crush on japanese men...ahem.
okay, this doesn't quite work. the introduction of dark colours is too much, i think (the tights match better in real life...) but i might play around with different combinations, maybe dark tights...
blouse- charity shop
tights- portobello road market
okay. these photos...i look like i'm trying to be a domonatrix or something. i was actually trying to show the shape of the trousers, and look 'fierce'...
THIS MAKE-UP IS PHOTOSHOPPED ON.
i actually quite like this, even if it is very different to what i normally wear.
i got the weird trousers from a topshop sale for £3, and i developed a weird liking for them. the blouse is something mum just bought home from work, randomly...it's a wonderful shape:
it's got bat-wing arms, and a cowl-ish neck, which is unbuttoned here...
shirt- school dressing up box
corset top- tammy girl when i was 13.
here, i was trying to channel susie bubble (who, normally, i would not even ATTEMPT to imitate...i would look even MORE stupid than i do normally) by turning my garment up-side-down. it worked surprisingly well! especially with the blazer. if i do actually wear this out, i'll wear it with a strappy top, not the weird corset-y one i was wearing, and i'd probably wear the shirt inside out so you didn't see the stitching. and...with either a simple black skirt and tights, or straight black trousers and heels.
and finally, just trying the blazer with some other shirts...
as you may or may not have noticed, i like this blazer.
my tidy wardrobe (: even though it looks a bit dingy and dark =/
my box of things to alter...
