I've been ill the last day and half and have hardly been in clothes that are bloggable. While very cute, my dressing gown will never make an appearance on this blog. Never. So I decided, what better way to celebrate feeling slightly better than playing dress up. As I'm told, playing dress up has been my default state of mind since I was three when I first started taking an interest in clothes and 'reading' my mom's Vogue magazines. Typical Sarah behaviour. It goes even further, my family sometimes call me Lola after the little girl in Charlie and Lola. My catch phrase of 'I am the Sun' even caused my sister to give me the set of Charlie and Lola DVDs for my 21st birthday. Sadly, I feel no shame about this alter-ego of mine. Here's part of my favourite episode - There is only one sun and that is me!
That introduction into the inner workings of my mind aside, the outfit. I loved the simplicity of this skirt-jersey combination. Perhaps I like it even more because the boots and proportion of the skirt make me feel tall. The cream mesh skirt, made by mother, last made an appearance on the blog in The exhilarating ripple of her voice was a wild tonic in the rain.... I love the length of the skirt and how it heightens the contrast with the black jersey, black scarf and black ankle boots. I'm fond of monochrome outfits and often wear black and white together.
|I love how the simplicity of the outfit is contrasted|
with the loudness of my bedroom.
|I think this room says a lot about me. |
Feminine, nostalgic, creative, over-the-top...
|These pearl earrings are favourites of mine.|
Earlier today while listening to my iPod on Shuffle I came across this song that I haven't listened to in ages. Camera Obscura is a favourite band of mine that I always seem to forget about. There's a contradiction in that statement I'm sure but it makes sense to me. Razzle Dazzle Rose is such a beautiful song as are many of Camera Obscura's songs. Have a listen:
I hope to be up and back to my normal busy self soon with more adventures into Joburg and with more things to blog about soon.
