261.Wishes to give up procrastination

I have so many outfit ideas at the moment it's crazy.I can't seem to stop thinking of different ways to wear things,different accesory options,different ways of layering.This results in utter clothing chaos on my bedroom floor,much to my families dissaproval...lots of people presume I'm a tidy organised sort of person,but I'm a clutterwhore really.I've spent each day this week in a completely different outfit. Todays outfit is pretty simple though,however my new wardrobe awareness put this lovely necklace(a hand me down from my mum)and my wine coloured tights on show. By wardobe awareness I mean the sudden realisation that I have tons of different items that don't get worn enough.
Anywho, I'm staying at a friends tonight,I think thats why I feel kind of hyped,considering that this half term has been sort of shitty(ie I spent everyday procrastinating over homework)....

260.Wishes to go someplace interesting

The sound of Silence-Simon & Garfunkel

Not got much to say other than I bought this lovely with my topshop vouchers in Leeds yesterday. I had a hetic, but enjoyable day touring a couple vintage shops,eating cake,and marvelling at all the amazing architecture. Also bought some really groovy vintage earrings,they're green triangle studs with gold glitter inside them...will try take a photo of them soon.
p.s I saw some super cool black leather shorts with buckles and mesh material on the side of them in a vintage shop,but my mum thought they were "prostitutey". It's kind of difficult to go shopping with my mum,as she sometimes dissaproves of my bolder style choices.

259.Wishes to understand the weather

h&m jeans that I cut into shorts,vintage shoes,jacket and belt,old scout shirt

Cemetery Gates-The Smiths

Went for a walk up to the park and also to the wasteland to see the horses.By no means was this outfit appropiate,my fingers went blue and my eyes streamed in the wind. I do this often it seems...I don't really dress myself correctly for the weather,mostly because I rarely brave the outdoors. Cut up these shorts a few weeks ago,as I never wore them as jeans-too baggy for my liking.I have plans to customise the back pockets with flowers some time soon.I'm going to Leeds tommorow,which is pretty exciting- it seems I've been looking forward to it forever.

258.Wishes for an amazing camera

A failure of an outfit post,I realise. Ah well,just messing around with the camera I loaned from the art department at school. Planning on taking some photos for my self-image project later in the holidays,but just trying to grasp all the settings for the moment. It's a crazy cool camera,and is making me really wish I had it on permanent loan. I'm wearing 2 of my favourite blue shirt,and this wonderful jumper. There both hand me downs from my mum-I've realised that all my favourite items of clothing are things my mum has given me.

257.Wishes for some modern love

So The Clothes Horse posted a backstage video that she shot behind the scenes at the Suno show,and I couldn't help but have an orgy over these shoes.They are the most fabulous things.I was sort of meh about the clothing,until I had a proper look,and realised there were some really cool pieces.Really interesting patterns and shapes.I've been seeing bits and bobs from the different collections,but not had time to have a real good look. However it's half term...woooooh.Lets celebrate with some David Bowie and Wild Cherry....

Modern Love-David Bowie

Play that funky music-Wild Cherry

Gonna have lots of time to get a ton of stuff done.But for now,I think I may just have a house party on my own,as my parents are asleep,brothers out,and I'm incredibly awake.

256.Wishes to teach people

Dark Halls

Night Majestic

A violent yet Flammable World

So I've been listening to Au Revoir Simone constantly for the last two weekes,ever since I spent the last of my hmv voucher on their CD "the bird of music".I've mentioned Au Revior Simone before,but felt they deserved a full fledged post about them.Their music makes me feel really happy-the electro beats,the chiming happy voices in unison,and the tinkling of bells. Oh so wonderful....
Now for hot chocolate,plus more maths and german homework.

254.Wishes not to be shy

Don't be Shy-Cat Stevens

I Wish,I wish-Cat Stevens

On the road to find out-Cat Stevens

I've been wanting to see Harold and Maude for a while,and finally watched it last night.It was no dissapointment.Its such an amazingly beautiful movie.Great music,great era,great clothes,great plot,great quirks,great feeling and great comedy. Go watch it! It's the dreaded valentines day tommorow(oh how wonderfully alone will all us single people feel tommorow) watch this in revolt to some overly sloppy chick flick.

253.Wishes to be a ballerina

Haven't really got much to say,as I haven't done anything interesting recently(I've had flu over the weekend) other than watch the black swan. It was a really good movie,even if it put me on edge for 2 hours.I'm pretty wimpish when it comes to thrillers/ horrors,and generally watch them with hunched up knee's and partly closed eyes.The plot was filled with a lot of mind fuckery,but it still made sense.

All the ballet and costumes were so beautiful,and even if you don't like "scary" movies,it's worth watching just for the ballet. Dancing really facinates me...I always wanted to go to dance class when I was young,but never did because I was too shy and my parents couldn't really afford it. My first asspiration in life was to be a bus driver(I loved bus journeys for some odd reason),but after that I wanted to be a ballerina.
Next on my movie list is never let me go,which looks amazing.Anyways,going to make myself some more honey and lemon tea now,and watch some crappy afternoon tv.

252.Wishes to go chasing rabbits

White Rabbit-Jefferson Airplane. Such an amazing song,her voice is so bewitching.

This Orient-Foals

Jolene-Dolly Parton

We are not Alone-Karla DeVito

Just some music I've been listening to and pictures because I feel like it. Today we were given our art exam briefs,and I'm actually kind of excited.I feel like I've spent nearly two years doing things that I haven't really been able to get into. Finally in art I can do something more relevant to me,something more free. My head is buzzing with ideas...
