Reflections on an average photography class

Back when I was at film school there was a compulsory photography class in first year. 
I just found the evidence.
The assignment was Literally to make a colour pun. It was Literally the worst photography class Ever.
(My colour pun was 'seeing red'. I think)
That's my little sister.

sleep is for the weak. sleep is for the week.

 (though I bet getting in and/or out of a giant champagne glass is not nearly as fabulous as one would like)

wrapped a $2 plastic flower lay around my head a while ago - makes happiness in others and garners free coffee

Just found this picture
I am reminded so often of how much I need a veil

'hello, yes, this is the secretary goth'

Outfit posts started grossing me out a while ago for that weird mix of self exploitation and narcissism that they exemplify
'I am nothing more than the clothes that I wear' sort of projection.

Which is a weird sort of hypocrisy because it's one of my favourite things on other peoples blogs, whether or not I like the clothes, I either mock from my high tower or admire their self expressionism and generally enjoy other humans. 
It also annoyed me that an item of clothing was tainted after I put it on the internet, because people would say IRL (the expression/abbreviation/acronym 'irl' is the BEST thing EVAH) oh yeah I saw that on your blog and I'd make the disapproving Marge Simpson noise in my brain and cease to wear that item of clothing for a while.

But, all that aside, here is how I wore my face today, I was listening to Gwen all morning, can you tell?
stupid photobooth suck pictures shit lighting

my tip to wearing black lipstick: smile all the time because it is kinda confusing and your lips will look amazing.

Dolce and Gabbana winter2013

this isn't a revolutionary collection, but it's also practically faultless (in the eyes of Dr T J Eckleburg*)

I loved something about everything and everything about some
Perfection -
Renaissance , Rococo, Baroque themes
and it ticks every goddamn box under the heading 'Details'
Gold brocade · Embroidery · Black lace veils · White tulle · Floral prints · Embellished sunglasses
Stiff capes · Corsets · Bridal gowns
Silk dress pajamas · Maroon smoking jackets · Distressed velvet shoes

The hair embellishments and jewellery evoked the Elizabethan era while maintaining an inherent youthfulness

I can hardly even distinguish a separation between the men's and women's collections, they're so aesthetically entwined
once again: Silk Dress pajamas · Maroon smoking jackets · Distressed velvet shoes

*I am not referencing god with a capital G, I wanted to talk about myself but also felt Gatsby metaphors rolling off the tongue... I THINK OF MYSELF AS THE OMNIPRESENT EYES OF DR T J ECKLEBURG**
**That's not true

Sofia's Marni

I love advertising, especially two minute long ads with babes and printed fabrics
