Moar Texture

wpid-20141228_195057.jpg I watched an entire season of Legend of Korra today. I may or may not have stayed in my pyjamas until 4pm while doing this. I'm not a complete slob though, I did get dressed eventually.


The reason I got dressed was because I needed to go for a walk (being inside was driving me nuts, and the sun came out this afternoon after a very cloudy/rainy morning) Yet again, I decided that I may as well get dressed properly and show my  blog some love.


I've really been enjoying the whole playing with texture thing. I feel like its added another element to my outfits (and you all know how I love to be eclectic!) I decided to wear both my bow and belt under the semi sheer top layer to add an element of surprise (This is why I'm not in the fashion industry, my descriptions are dreadful!)





I took my kindle on my walk, and found a lovely spot in the sun to plonk myself down for several hours and finish the book I was reading; Undivided by Neal Shusterman. It's the 4th book in the Unwind Dystology, and like the other books, was brilliantly written.

The TLDR of the series is the main character guy is a teenager living in a futuristic society in which after the age of 13 parents can send for the government to come and collect their naughty child and have 99% of their body donated for medical purposes. They call this "living in the divided state" and the process of getting there is called "unwinding". Anyway, the main guys parents send in an unwind order for him, which causes him to start a very long process of getting society to realise what idiots they are for thinking of this as acceptable behaviour.

So yeah, great book!



I also thought I'd show my current photography setup for those who are interested. I'm a lover of all things gadgety, so my setup is full of weird, but handy little gadgets.



Playing with Texture


I had my first day off in weeks today (which meant I was able to stay in my pyjamas until way to late in the afternoon) If I didn't have some errands to run, I probably would have stayed in my PJ's all day.


This is what I wore to run errands! I'm technically wearing two dresses (but the one I'm wearing on top is incredibly see through) Normally the top layer is worn with a blue body con dress. I've often thought about styling the see through layer separately to the body con, but it looks a little silly if the dress underneath is busy, finishes as a circle skirt, or pokes out the bottom of the organza.

The lace dress I wore underneath is the only other dress I own that does not look silly with it!




The errands I had to run were in Woy Woy. I often get comments about my outfit, but the comment I recieved today was a first. This old dude said "I love your outfit. You must be a party girl"  I find this comment particularly amusing because I don't party.

So yeah, I pretty much floated around all day because this is an incredibly floaty outfit.




If you've been following my blog for a while, you've probably noticed I've always got bracelets on my wrists. I thought I would showcase them today! The only time I ever take these off is when I have a photo shoot, so I'm never without them.




The reason I don't take them off is because each bracelet was given to me by a loved one. Every time I look at my wrists, I am reminded of those who love me :)
