LILY ALLEN AND PLEATS.

First of all here's some music for ya. I have to say that I seriously love this cover Lilly Allen did. It makes me so happy.


I saw Lily Allen live last summer. She was actually really good. I never expected here to be good live. But she was. It was a great show.

Now on to today's outfit:


Accessorize beret, Vero Moda top, Warehouse skirt, H&M leggings, Bijenkorf leggings.

The top actually has a waterfall collar, but I rolled the collar so it looked like this.

Now I'm off to bed. Trying to think of some cool things for my art project.

SLACKING.

Hey there people,

I never thought this would actually happen to me, but for a change I did take outfit photos. But I slacked in posting them. So here you go.
Thursday:


Sutherland blouse, Zara dress, H&M leggings, Bijenkorf boots.

I can't for the life of me remember what I did that day. I went to school. And well, there's one thing I remember. And what the heck, we all need a laugh from time to time, so here it is:

I went to the gym at wednesday evening. Zumba, if you wanted to know. Anyway, after I came home I wanted to get the dirty clothing out of my bag and came to the conclusion that I left almost everything at the gym. Pants, bra and well, everything. So thursday, during my free time in between classes, I went to the gym to pick them up. Just imagine how stupid I felt having to ask for my "pants". I'm just glad the lady from the gym was behind the desk, and not a man.

So far for my exciting life.

On to friday:


scarf from a turkish bazar, H&M shirt, vintage belt, warehouse skirt, H&M tights, Graceland shoes.

I had to dress casual today, because I had musical rehearsals directly after school. And after the rehearsals I went home to have dinner. At 9 PM I went to a friend, who moved to another house. I love housewarmings. What I love even more is the fact that I didn't have to get up the next morning until 10 AM. And really, after weeks of having to get up at 6.30 AM 10 AM is goooood!
Have a nice weekend everyone!

Oooh and Aaahh.

I haven't really got a lot I'd like to tell you. My life just isn't all that exciting.
I just wanted to show off the boots.


This is when you go "oooh" and "aaaahhh" and start drooling.


Dress unknown from a sample sale, H&M tights, Bijenkorf boots.

Thanks to my puppy eyes, I convinced my dad that my friend and I should make our workspace from our attic. It's going to be really cool.
It's got beautiful lighting, one large table for our sewing machines, mannequins, notice boards on the wall to pin inspiration to, and a clothing rack to hang the finished clothes. Oh, and some storage space, but there should be plenty.

BOUDOIR.

My art assignment at school is to draw/paint a stillife. I chose the theme "boudoire/burlesque". These are some shots of items I own that I made. Ofcourse this is not all. Among these were a bustier, shoes, more ferfume, jewelry, etc.

I've always really liked the glamour of burlesque/boudoir. Even as a little child. And as I grow up I find myself guilty of buying burlesque (inspired) items.

NEW BOOTS!

I just wanted to show you a quick, fugly webcam shot of my new boots, because I'm so happy with them!

Btw; don't mind the double chin.

GETTING OLD.

I wore a casual outfit today. Because I just felt like it.
Oh, my new jumpsuit is going to be delivered tomorrow! Excited to see if it fits me. I don't think I'll be able to take any outfit photos, because I have to work from 8 AM until 6 PM and I have to go to a fancy dinner at 7 PM.

Didi dress, H&M dress as top, H&M leggings, black straps around my boots.
Here's a little something for you. I call this photo "Hi, I'm Rachel, I used to be lean, but as you can see I'm not that lean anymore".

I'm off to a birthday party now! It's going to kill me. I'm getting old, I'm telling ya! I can't do that anymore, the going to bed at 3 AM and get up at 6.30.

SINGING THE BLUES

I know it's been ages ago since I posted an outfit photo, so here's one for you! I wore this today, but took the photo last night when I was picking my outfit.
I'm sorry for the crappy photo, but it was dark, I lost my remote (found it again!) and well, it's too god damn rainy outside.


Zu+elements dress worn as vest, Warehouse dress.

I decided that I shouldn't wear so much H&M. Because well, the quality isn't superb, everyone's wearing it and that should be reason enough to not own too many H&M items. I should invest more in pretty clothing, so know I'm addicted to marktplaats (dutch ebay lookalike) in the hope I'll find some really cheap, pretty clothing.

HAIR.

Just a quick webcam shot of my new haircut. The bobbypin is because work won't allow me to have hair in my face (this shot was taken 10 min. before going to work).

Bye!

It's oh so quiet. Shhhhsst..

School has started again. Half a week ago, actually. I still haven't found my swing back. It's sucking the life out of me.

That being said, I've got my hair cut. It's none of the options from a few posts back, I just let the hairdresser do whatever she wanted. And I like it. It feels healthy and smells delicious. Don't you just love that smell when you just got back from the hairdresser?
Well. I do.

And now all I want to do is sleep. But I've got a deadline.

See ya!

P.s. Nevermind this post. It's 0.38 AM, the average amount of hours of sleep for the last week has been 5 or 6 hours a night, and well, that would be it.

FLOWER.


H&M longsleeve, H&M skirt, H&M flower, boots - can't remember.

I decided to do an outfit post again. It's been so long. And I know the outfit isn't really exciting, but it's definately better than my PJ-outfits from the last few days. And I should shop more at other places than H&M.

I really feel like shopping, but I'm saving for a new lens. The baby costs about €450. Yes, that's a lot. So no new stuff for me in the near future, unless I really need it.

INSOMNIA.

I feel sorry for myself. Yes, I do. Self pitty. But there's a reason. I just couldn't sleep last night. So I got out of bed, put on some make up and shot some photos, went back to bed again, made sure my alarm was set at 6.30 and not 7.30 and saw 3.29AM change into 3.30.

That means I had about three hours of sleep today. And I had a workday of 10 hours (8 AM - 6 PM).

I'm totally exhausted now.

Goodnight! I'm off to the couch.

LONG TIME NO SEEING.

I realise that there hasn't been an entry from me for a very long time. I'm very sorry for that, but I'm just enjoying my last few days of walking around in PJ pants. That's all. So there's really nothing exciting to see. Just PJ pants, a longsleeve and that's it.

I still haven't started my new project yet because I'm too lazy to buy new paint (before you judge, I do have to cycle 50 minutes for one tube of paint. And yes, as I said, I'm enjoying my last few days of lazyness).

I have however finished my book, sent my package to Sofie (should be delivired today), watched movies and done nothing. So that's more than I usually can cross off my to-do list. To-do lists are in my case more "what I should do lists".

Now I'm very busy deciding which haircut I like best (because I really do have to get my hair cut!), and editing some photos because I need to have finished them next week.

Here are the options:

Haircut #1:


Haircut #2:

I came to the conclusion that I can't choose. So please help me decide!

01-09-09

TO-DO list

For tomorrow. Or today, actually.


* Bake cookies.
* Finish my book.
* Start my new project - start 1 painting.
* Bring my package for Sofie to the post office.
* Watch movies and do nothing.

Here's a little sneak preview of the project. It's going to involve silent movie actresses.
