Best Toast

I'm still stuck in a 70's ish rut but in a more ethereal nature kinda way. 

*i rly need a tripod*

There was a 'fashion' show at my school and things were sold there too, so I scoured round for stuff. I got a load of crystals for 20p each and the brooch I'm wearing above (but you can't see) too. The paisley velvet top is from Etsy, the mesh top is originally from Pilot but I got it from eBay, and the tartan skirt is from the SA ages ago - it's like a size 20 so it's really uncomfortable to keep hoisted up (also why i don't appear to have a waist it's folded over so much). I had Mary Quant star/moon stockings on and when I went out yesterday in these two tops I had black ribbon in my hair.

I have a LOVE magazine subscription and I think this issue is my favourite of the one's I've had so far. The mesh top from the SS12 Bottega Veneta campaign ad in LOVE is the same top on the far left picture above. One of the Proenza Schouler campaign pictures is in it too. The SS12 Rodarte dress is one Elle Fanning wore and I'm head over heels for it.

I bought these records yesterday - more for the sleeves than anything. They were only 20p each.

Two books from the SA I also bought yesterday. My mum has taken the fortune telling one as her own it seems and is literally reading palms of anyone she meets now. The dream book is fascinating too - some of the words are so obscure. I have a lot of dreams but I don't remember them as soon as I wake up usually, it takes something during the day to trigger remembering it, so I might take it round with me because it's small enough to do so.

Some scans from the fortune teller book:

I could have done way more but I didn't want to bore you to tears. I find them really engrossing/alluring though.

Journal page that feels relevant.

Over the past week I've kind of formed an intense Joni Mitchell obsession and bought her album 'Blue' on CD from eBay. Appreciation for Joni Mitchell sentence. Especially her songs 'California' and 'Case of You'. I've also become infatuated with The Crucible and The Royal Tenenbaums.

Admire her sheer brilliance^^^^^^^^^^^^^.
