Poetry and shoes

I don't know what I want to do,
but I know it's not this
not this me
not this you
I'm not quite sure about anything now
and I like it that way
I'm unstable, yet proud
Everyone tells you to do the right thing
but in moments of sadness all I want to do is sing
My life is unwritten
until I step down
The future's not hidden,
it's wearing with a crown

OK now that's all out in the open, I can get back to discussing the most important thing in the world


It's been a hectic month, I resigned from my job and am looking forward to new opportunities and challenges in 2012. And more shoes! So for now, I shall continue to blog, hopefully more regularly, and hopefully a lot more inspired and original content will be coming your way!

I need these. That is all.

I'm damn excited

Gaga is kicking off her 110-show Born This Way Ball with shows in Australia
including two shows in Sydney on June 20th + 21st

I'll be going to both, but for the first I'll need a killer costume [to make from scratch]

I'm 90% sure this is what I'll be doing

1. denim bra with studs + jewels - probably made from vintage jeans and re-constructed
2. wig pre-styled into chignon with curled front (need hairdresser's help)
3. high-waisted denim shorts ripped to shreds (or just tights or jeans)
4. 2 x pairs of black stockings ripped to shreds
5. shoes - I'll have to watch the video to find better details of these
6. leather gloves with cut-outs
7. sunglasses with diamante anime eyes
8. sharpened claw nails (black)
9. denim jacket covered in studs and bling

This isn't light work, that's for sure, but I'm certain I can pull it off

Better start exercising if I'm going to be showing that much skin!

Trend Alert: Notify SS12 Jeans

I don't know much about this brand, but when I saw these photos on denimology.com I knew I had to post about them

We see the continuation of neon, metallic and tribal elements, but now they are intensified and combined to create some really bold styles.

I love the solid gold, rainbow metallic and bold rainbow print.

Which would you wear?

Wildfox Spring/Summer 2012 Lookbook

 Such a beautiful and real shoot

This is pretty much my ideal photoshoot and result

minimal artificial lighting (if any) and a fresh-faced model with a unique style that allows a typically mundane/predictable setting to have an edge to it

Charlotte Free is that girl and she really lets loose in this shoot

My favourite look is the pink veil/pink bride

and I also love the I'm really a mermaid tee
