mood

apartment envy via carlota santamaria / natalia vodianova / bill withers / camouflage tee shirt / wonderful orange nail, white wedge combination via this girl at hoy fashion / same apartment as 1st source.

PHEW life is tedious at the moment. the last week has been spent mostly in the library with just as much yo-yo-ing between successful outfits and loss of mojo as between my desk and the vegetarian cafe for cake and coffee refuelling. cooking a big ole lebanese feast last night and watching the 'still bill' bill withers documentary tonight have provided some respite though. also on my mind (as someone who is always late on the uptake with current music) is the 'new' beyonce song which in a climate of slutwalks and multiple rape gaffs feels like a much needed girl power filled comeback anthem and is on repeat. the (unlikely) fantasy of teaching myself some beyonce choreography (like this) for a big end of exams dance-off release is lingering at the back of my brain, just behind the memorised facts about reaganomics and the new deal agencies. really can't wait to have studying over and to reimmerse myself into wearing outfits that don't need to be dictated by library comfort and aisle side fashion parades as i'm quickly learning that study periods at university equate to the 'real life' equivalent of fashion week.

Last week I told my friends how into camo I am as of late. Obviously all I received were grossed out scoffs. "But it's like half A.P.C. and half cool kid about town," I said... So in other words, I appreciate that you included that t-shirt. Found a camo fisherman's hat that I think I'm gonna buy!

The shorts are indeed vintage purchased from Beyond Retro in Soho, I shortened the hem on mine. They had lots of similar styles though.

You've got me suffering from apartment envy too, although living in halls results in any kind of home envy. Good luck with the studying, and when over may you celebrate with some perfected Beyonce moves!
