I'm very much looking forward to the Christmas holidays- I'm going to spend the majority of the two weeks asleep I can already tell :) I'm simply exhausted desperately trying to complete my essay so I can actually enjoy my break.
I've finally relented and brought out the stockings, and welcomed my faux furs back into normal rotation. I just love faux fur coats- or anything faux fur. Its warm, cosy and chic. Plus looks perfect with my Collectif cherry dress and big hair.
Fifties dressing is becoming my "safe place"- like I only feel comfortable when I have my clothes and hair just right. It makes me feel incredibly shallow but I feel like I'm now old enough to stop pretending I don't care how I look and just embrace my differences. Turning 25 on Tuesday didn't just bring a complete and recurring mental breakdown, I also won a pair of ticket to the Horst exhibit at the V&A from Lipstick Queen which I am claiming as a birthday day out :) plus giving me the excuse to go to the Mid Century Christmas Market.
Speak again soon.
