I know most blogs are all full of beautiful clothes, fashion and everyone’s latest purchases and sometimes I get very jealous of how people can find both nice clothes, and be able to buy them. It’s not just about money, though I hate to spend too much- I just hate shopping. I’m terrified of shopping centre’s, even little cute vintage stores where all the clothes are amazing, I get too scared to try things on or buy them. It’s just another weird phobia I have. Places are too white, too noisy, too quiet, people look at me oddly- I JUST HATE SHOPS. But last week, with some birthday money in my hand and a few friends for moral support I plucked up the courage to buy something that I’ve wanted again since I grew out of them aged 6- DUNGAREES! Yes they were from New Look (yuck) but I love them.
I’ve also had this Smiths patch for ages and haven’t known where to put it- yay, it fits perfectly
What else has happened this week:
Got a really beautiful birthday card in the post, it's so so so pretty I literally can't get over it.
Turned some 99p slippers into Morrissey and Bowie high fashion ones.
Received the photos of me being a moody sulky model for a friend (part of the Teddy boy post a few weeks ago) (there's more decade shoots coming up and this was me from the 80's) (so Heathers)
I have also spent some time at my friend's house, having my hair crimped, dreadlocked and dyed blue in certain splodgy areas- the effect is very um, well I look like a bedraggled lion.
But on the plus side my graphics tape past old young project is going quite well, I'm excited for a weekend of doing some work on it, drinking tea, dancing to Patti Smith and reading Irvine Welsh's Porno.
What have you done this week?
