My lack of activity is very sad! My computer has gone kaput and now freezes and crashes pretty much all the time, boooooo. I have enough time to upload photos to Lookbook, but writing a post is far beyond my poor tired computer's abilities :(
Apologies and love! <3

This is a top I made the other day, fashioned from the material of an illfitting skirt. If I had a better photo of the whole outfit I would post it on lookbook - I had some pretty cute shoes to go with it... Anyway, I'd love to know what you think? I'm such an amateur with a needle and thread!
It was a friend's birthday; a dinner and cocktails. It was a classy affair to go with a classy girl so HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOTSTUFF! (Seeing as I'm not going to say her name I feel HOTSTUFF is a suitable alias)
And this outfit was just a bit of fun for a night out - I add the ruffles on the socks myself and felt like a big kid all night. Shame it looks like I have no friends in this photo ha! I should start calling myself Lonelygirl á la Gossip Girl.
Hope all is good in the 'hood with you guys. It's rainy days and cups of tea where I am, you'll find me chilling in my Spongebob PJs although I'm thinking I might channel Blair Waldorf and wear a slip and dressing gown and knee high socks. Practical? I think not. But if I plan on going places, I better start dressing the part! As the show once said "
Upper East Side Queens aren't born at the top. They climb their way up in heels, no matter who they have to tread on to do it." Wise words if I ever heard them.

(click on it for a far bigger view - does anyone know how to make my blog wider?)
This is what I wore last night, I'm really digging these shoes at the moment. Some girls were losers and calling me anorexic - hardly a new insult - but seriously, grow up. I eat and I'm happy so whatever fooooools. Today I dug out my mum's sewing machine, but I'm lacking inspiration right now... and lacking funds so I can't go out either. Well I lie, I will go out - guess I will have take a loan out from the Royal Bank of Parents until payday!
Ps. My love for turtlenecks is so REAL right now.

Today is super sunny, however I am spending my day sewing a top for myself which hopefully will be done pretty asap! This is what I am wearing today - a t-shirt I am in LOVE with, even if I do say so myself!
To bide time, here are several photographs of yours truly which I feel wouldn't get a place in my blog otherwise.

And so this post will be about yours truly - who else am I an expert on? My face -
Writing this blog, all I am armed with is my beloved customised Dell, my darling Fuji camera, and the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations (which my mother bought in late 1987).
I hope to make this my style blog. Knowing me though, anyone who finds this blog will probably also be exposed to mindless chatter and random late night ponderings from a sleep-deprived, diet coke addict, who is watching David Attenborough and QI reruns because she is too lazy and tired to go to bed - now that's an oxymoron if I ever heard one. It's sad but true.
One thing about me is I hate to be copied... the more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else. so embrace yourself completely, we don't live in 1984.
I am currently looking forward to this:
Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland - I wonder if it shall be the childhood fantasy or the very adult drug trip version?
