HOWWWWWWWW do you people make your photos portrait sized to fit your blog without making the quality x100 worse? (I try to resize them then put them in as original size but as you can see from the photo below and the one above the difference is insane). Anyway, finally an outfit post! Variations of this outfit have been my uniform for the past 6 weeks. I wore these exact things last Thursday though. 

Sweater - eBay £9
Shirt - eBay £7
Skirt - eBay £15
Tights - American Apparel £22
Shoes - Etsy £26

I've been buying geometrically patterned/grid prints a lot lately and I think it was spurred on from keeping a tag for anything along these lines on my tumblr (photos from the tag below).

From visiting the local art museum in summer, also in a grid print shirt from Primark for £12. I cut the hem off so it's cropped now. I've had my hair cut since then and also these photos are for my sketchbook for school so theyre posed (who takes photos without squinting yet i have my eye WIDE open).

The Rodarte SS14 and Narciso Rodriguez SS14 collection pictures here are quite random additions but the looks I have posted are very much what I'm into wearing at the moment (well it would be, if i could afford designer clothes ha h  a ha). However, I wasn't very enamored with the Rodarte collection as a whole despite the two looks above offering a slight fraction of a redemption. The polar contrasting blocks and strict tailoring of the Narciso Rodriguez looks (and entire collection) are completely my new object of adulation, though.

the type-writered beat

I go back to school tomorrow so summer is over really. It's been good on the whole but it's been so long that it's merged into one huge void of time - I haven't had a lesson since the first few days of May because of study leave and my GCSE exams so it may take a while to get used to when I go back. I'm starting sixth form and I'm positively bricking it. I don't think I'll blog any less than I am at the moment, which is just sort of when I have anything to put here because it doesn't take long to upload things I would have anyway, if that makes any sense? Like we wear our own clothes in sixth form so I can post more outfits (if I don't resort to literally wearing jeans and a shirt everyday which is probable) and I carry my film camera everywhere too so I'll post random photos. I'll most likely post more than I have done over the summer too because I've spent the past few weeks wearing black and white only (on the whole) which wasn't very interesting; and I threw most of my clothes out/changed my room throughout July and August because I needed to purge things out of my life that I felt were stagnant. However I replaced all this stuff with more basic clothing for school so I had nothing to blog about outfits wise. I have a job now though so I'm slowly finding things on Etsy that are more interesting and for once I can afford this stuff.

These are some photos from a couple of weeks ago when we went to play tennis at the local rec.


My feet, Pam.

These photos were taken throughout the day hence why it's sunny in some and grainy in others. The photos below here are from a day where I visited a place in my county called the Blue Pool (I thought I'd include them in this post because they're blue/green such as the above). It was really awesome there and it didn't look like England whatsoever but my camera seems to be really bad quality wise at taking photos from a long distance away (I'm looking for different lenses/film) so I didn't have any from a wide angle to do it justice. 

Random vintage store we went into on the way back.

Also, I was in this article on Sunday which was quite cool. I definitely didn't say some of it so I take it that it's paraphrased (bear that in mind) also I look like a serial killer with a chucky smile and eyes like daggers (they asked for a photo in which I am smiling) I hate my smile) for now obvious reasons))).

It was in print too so it's immortalized forever.
