la mome and my face


it all started on an overcast thursday.
a nice early finish from college.

i hopped onto the bus to see if I could sniff out lara stone at the local borders.
and did. and then paid for the thick wad of glossy paper.


into evening, when I should have been writing various essays, I reaquainted myself with my sewing kit and took inspiration from french vogue to create the following tee. plugged in lots of lamps, a little hapzardly for hazy light and listened to the kills and edith piaf.

a happy coincidence, no, as i had watched la vie en rose just the night before.

and the end results.

this feels a significant moment for me, as i am finally revealing my face after much dithering and wondering.
now playing: only shallow by my bloody valentine

Very nice, i like it a lot with the high waisted jeans
oh god i was in uniqlo a few weeks ago getting some new jeans and i was trying on a pair and had no idea they were high waisted until they just kept on going, and becuase they were skinny and TOTALLY light blue, no darker patches anywhere they were the most fugly things I have ever worn
it made my friend holly laugh a lot though

and I think the thing with the Heidi collection is she may have designed it herself, how else would it look that gross???

And its exciting you have shown your face finally

Susan said...

Wow a momentous occasion! We now have a face for the name. Yay! and I love the tshirt, I feel like I'm seeing a whole new side to you.

Tinsley said...

Stevie your gorgeous! Like a mix of some eastern european model and frances bean cobain (think thats her name)

the tshirt is lovely! I think ill have to use my moms sewing kit as well - put that 300 dollar kit to use
(I know! $300! My dad bought it for her and I ended up with books...)

great collages - I love the french dictionary!

A historic moment! Mais est-ce que tu le regrette?

Ugh, my French got so bad.

Hey, I'm glad you found your way to my "personal" blog - since I've started it there's much more of my heart in it. Mind linking to it? Only if you find it interesting enough, that is :) Hope you're going to stay with it for a little longer, though.

Romany said...

Oooh I wish I could wear high-waisted jeans lol! One day...Lol.
Love the slogan 'je ne regrette rien' -it's such a powerful quote, even in english, but in french it makes all the difference.
We're both brunettes! Yay for brown hair. I don't know why you haven't 'showed your face' before, you could be a model! :)
