Popping in...

I had planned to post a tag-catch-up before now, but that's on the back burner 'til I can find my camera in the mess that is my room... 

Anyway, I was having a quick escape from dissertation pain to play on LookBook - my favourite of the Chictopia / Modepass etc type of site... And since my brain is too dead to do anything other than say... "I like." "Pretty." "Want dress." etc - in manner akin to Me Tarzan, You Jane / McQueen dress / Louboutin heels / vintage scarf etc, here is a quick stream of images that have made me smile and feel a tiny jolt of inspiration through my otherwise dead-brain:

- Can I please *be* this girl? She's so cute! And that skirt is calling out to me!

- Not exactly my style, but she looks so great, I'd think about rocking it... LOOK AT THOSE SHOES!!!
- Adorable yet naughty with those tights! Love the skinny belt over denim shirt... Wish I could ever find ones long enough to do that without revealing my arse to the world lol.

- LOVE this! Illustration as well as cute pic! Those tights are adorable, and I so want to read a kids book drawn like that... Now. Please. Thank you.
- Looks like such fun! I miss fun. I also NEED those shorts... I'm a sucker for red at the moment!

So there you have it... I popped in... Splurged my tiny little bit of current inspiration... Now I should go drink more red bull, and try to kick my brain into gear over my dissertation case studies... 

61.5 hours 'til IT'S ALL OVER! This makes me want to cry and laugh hysterically at the same time! ;-D Can't wait for the freedom to lie around on the backs, reading Murakami / Dante / Golding, procrastinating from revision, and laughing at my mates looking like complete idiots playing frisbee / croquet / strange made-up games that make no sense...

P.s. I'm trying to keep up with my Google Reader, but am epically behind on comments... Please forgive me, and I promise I'll be back and replying and generally being my usual hyperactive-blogging self! Honest!

P.p.s. Say hello on twitter! I'm constantly updating at the mo. Keeps me a tiny bit sane...

If you can't find a denim shirt that you can wear like that I know that H&M have a pale denim dress in at the moment, denim dress sounds absolutely awful, but this one is so cute! It's got a little peter-pan style collar, and nips in at the waist, it's just gorgeous :).

That girl in the first photo is wearing a gray boyfriend cardigan. I searched all over for a gray boyfriend cardigan yesterday, and turned up empty-handed. Maybe I could just borrow hers?

Fantastic choices! I should check out lookbook at some point... I'm still totally stuck in the rut of shopping online nonstop even though I'm on a shopping ban. haha =) And yea... Tell me about one word sentences. Sometimes I'm just too tired to think of anything great to say

Mademoisselle Chic said...

I love her skirt!

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Haha, I generally think in Tarzan terms, so no judgement here!

I've also been on the hunt for a similar long denim shirt. I ended up finding a bright green non-denim one... not quite the same, but better than nothing.

Adela said...

Oh my gosh I am so in love with the shoes in the second photo! I am completely obsessed with laces right now! If I could just get my hands on a pair of those Ann D lace up boots it would be utter bliss.
