When I first laid eyes on this dress last year, I fell in love. It was like the love child of Lady Gaga and a spider. A Lady Gaga spider dress. What's not to love about that? Except it was $250. And then it was sold out. And after a year's worth of toiling and repetitive eBay searches and hair pulling, it was finally mine. My friend came over the other day and the first thing he said when he saw the dress was: "What the fuck? That's a dress? I thought that was a cage for your rabbits."
Dress: ASOS Black....after a whole year of trawling eBay.
Heels: Birthday gift, originally from Glamourpuss @ Wanted Shoes
Various jewellery: Equip, Diva, Forever21.
Makeup (because I never wear makeup and I fail as a girl): Amanda Thai
Thank you to everyone who came up and said hi to me at the Hurlstone formal/Graduation cruise, it was really lovely to meet some of you - I'm sorry if I'm just about the most awkward girl to ever walk around in studded maryjane platforms.
The post-HSC break has really picked up. My week isn't half as shit-terrible as it was last week. I don't do much though, it's just a lot of eating at Pumpkin @ Strathfield and getting my ears annihilated by my friend's sound system. I've listened to so much RNB and Hip Hop this week that I'm my teeth are going to morph into grillz and soon enough I'll be speaking in rap. One single line from If I was You - Far East Movement keeps repeating itself in my head (OH EM GEE, SHAWTY'S SUCH A FREAK) And this post is really disjointed because I haven't had much sleep in the past week and all I can really think about is how great it would be to have a toasted cheese sandwich in my mouth, right now.
I have a few exciting collaborations coming up, so keep your eyes peeled like...an orange.
Wore it to the Hurlstone formal, the first actual, "proper" photography gig I've ever had. Taking photos for money is fucking amazing. I had so much fun dancing and snapping away to shitty RNB songs, and I was getting paid for it. The only downside was I that I dropped my 50mm and I found out yesterday it's decided to be a little bitch and had collapsed all over the place. When I try to take a photo using it now, it makes this high pitched whir that sounds like I was inserting metal rods up it's ass or something. But yeah, taking photos is actually incredibly fun and I don't suck at it, like I suck at making coffee. So if any of you are ever in need of an events photographer, hollllllllllllla at me (Living in Bankstown gives me enough street cred to say 'holla'), because I'm seriously considering taking it up as an actual part-time job.
