Longing to Don My Old Winter Uniform!

Wearing: Tights: House of Holland, Wedges: Aldo, Dress: TopShop, Leather Jacket: Berskha, Fedora: Vintage

Wearing: Jeans: H&M, Chelsea Peep Toes: H&M, Shirt: Zara, Oversized Cardi: Gift, Leather Jacket: Berskha, Hat: Zara
Kind of a creepy shot right!... but my nostalgia over rides the creepy by waaay far (said in true Clueless Cher style)!!!
Wearing: Booties: Steve Madden,  High Tops: Zara, Leather Shredded Jacket: ASOS, Belt: Vintage- Le Swing, Hat: Zara

Should I start with another "Recycled apology"? Nope... I'm not gonna! I felt the need for a nostalgic filler again, so here.it.is!
Oh how I miss wearing actual clothes... ones that you can layer on top of each other... oh sweet, sweet time when the thought of wearing clothes was joyful, not petrifying!!! Ahh, to waltz outside and feel the fresh, crisp breeze of Autumn. These moments feel like a dream to me right now, whilst I sit here in my home office, braving a momentary minute of no air-con (because I am too lazy to get up and turn it on right now- it's the heat I swear!) Granted, today has been rather wondrous, as I actually had a day off... Disco Pony was sleeping most of the day in fact, so I turned my attention to exploring the stunning jungle around me with Scoobs, drooling over the effortless cool of Charlotte Gainsbourg, and trying SO hard to finish a song I have been working on for what feels like ever (gah, I just can't get it perfect!). I have to say, when I'm not trekking into the city to go to work, and thus am sans make up and slightly appropriate clothing (not that I am ever really wearing even slightly appropriate office wear!) life out in the jungle seems much more bearable! Rather awesome in fact! No waiting in the blazing sun for 20 minutes whilst your make up sweats off, praying for the cool relief of the air con mini bus! Clearly, this isn't a lasting delight, but I will take what I can get and enjoy it to the max!
 I can't stop thinking about the new pieces in the collection... wishing for the perfect location and the perfect model to shoot it all in!
I was writing up a small interview today about Disco Pony- one of the questions was "Which celebrity would you love to dress" which totoally started me off on a Charlotte Gainsbourg stalk fest. Gah, she is just so cool. I have a friend from uni who I WISH was here to model for me... she is so Charlotte Gainsbourg! Oh Sophie... I neeeed you!!!
This also got me thinking about perceptions of beauty, and how utterly depressing it is to get too caught up with "perfection". I always feel so much more excited about fashion and clothes and life in general when I surround myself with inspirational images of non conventional beauties- There really is nothing more beautiful than confidence. A hard thing to achieve when we are so surrounded by convention.
okay...so I have just spent the past 30 minutes trying to get a link I can use to post of Miss Gainsbourg, alas, it worketh not... it's too hot to fight it! Hope your well gorgeous ones! I'm looking forward to shooting some posts out on the streets, in civilisation at some point... maybe in some new Disco Pony pieces when they arrive! Eeep! :) xx
