Today's look has a pretty obvious difference in quality from my past images, it's not because I got a new camera or editing software, it's because I finally learned how to use my camera properly! I've literally improved 100x overnight. Just thought I'd share that because I'm pretty exited.
I love this jacket so much! I first spotted it when I was with Gemma in the opshop on Aro St, in Wellington. I tried it on but I didn't buy it because I wasn't sure that I'd ever wear it, I'm not used to such bright colours. The next day we went in again and it was still there so I figured it was meant to be mine, and then Gemm quickly steps in and says "I was going to get it for you for your birthday..." So I let her buy it for me and in the following few days she hid it and embroidered some sneaky symbols on the inside. I won't tell you what they are because that's my little secret that reminds me of her whenever I wear it. Best friends are the cutest. It is now my rainy days jacket because I like to look like sunshine and brighten up people's day when the weather is gloomy.
I'm also wearing some tights that I got from Cotton On in Hastings when I was up there for NYDS in 2013, a velvet dress that Gemm also gave me, my trusty Doc Martens and a belt that mum used to wear for Egyptian dancing.
I went on a little $2 shop mission the other day and bought some shitty sparkly eyeshadows, eyeliners, and colourful lipstick so that I could experiment with drawing on my face. It was fun.
