Transformers: Revenge of the Sequins



An outfit I wore a long while back to a black and white party. Yes, I kind of cheated by wearing sequins that aren't black...or white. Yes, same shoes, same clutch, virtually the same accessories as everyone of my 'dressed up' outfits. Nothing will ever compare to these, though. Except maybe those pony hair BCBG wedges that all the bloggers are throwing around.



Wearing:
Butterfly sequinned top: Glassons (ON SALE. I HAD TO TREK TO FUCKING CHATSWOOD TO GET THIS TOP, AND IN TWO SIZES TOO BIG, TOO.)
Bodycon mini: $5 from @Topshop
Shoesss: Glamourpuss, GIFT FROM FRIENDSIES.
Clutch: Portmans, gift from uncle.
Jewellery and shit: Diva & Equip
Kittens: free, underneath my house.





Oh my godddd, in the middle of taking photos my sister turns into this shrieking banshee and I look over AND THERES A FAMILY OF KITTIES ADMIRING MY OUTFIT FROM AFAR. I later tried to throw pieces of spam and eggs at them but the mother just kept hissing at me like I was going to shove her kittens up my ass or something.





OH. AND GUYS. I'M GOING TO JOHN MAYERS CONCERT LAKDJFLKAJFLKAJDFLAJFLDKAJFLAJ. YAY!! 10th May. SO. PUMPED. His behavior makes him come across as the biggest douche bag alive, but the man makes such unbelievably amazing music. The kind of music you could happily die to.





One of my favourite things about this top: this. The shiny shit it throws onto the walls reminds me of that scene in Transformers where that Luke Picketwickety or whatever starts hallucinating random numbers and looks like he's going to die from a drug overdose.

Su-su-su-sugar Town.

I'm rewatching 500 Days of Summer right now, so that accounts for the title. What I wore to go to a family gathering for Chinese New Year. I love my family. Chinese New Year is basically for us to get together and have gamble all day. The kids were feeling innovative today and we've established a new tradition....gambling...with...MARIO. KART. PLAYING MARIO KART FOR MONEY. HOW GENIUS IS THAT?





Wearing:
Peach blouse - Salvos ($3)
Black Cardigan - Cotton On
Black/white pleated skirt - Salvos ($4)
Bucket bag - salvos ($5)
Various rings and shit - Diva and a friend.











Baby You Give Me Diabetes

As promised - Valentine's Mix. Happy Valentine's Day, guys. Whether that be with a significant other, your pet cat, or with your computer. Alternatively...happy Chinese New Year.

Life In Grain

Digital cameras are nice. You can spend hours taking photos, delete 99% of them and end up with a perfect shot. You spend hundreds and thousands of dollars for this, and it is convenient, and its fun. Digital photography is nice. But what is the point of taking a photo that isn't good enough? Whats the point of taking 89452945 shots, only to send them back to the digital netherworld in the push of a button? Recently I've been struck by this over and over. Digital photography seems so vapid. Maybe this is the start of my gradual decline into insanity, where I throw away my computer and start befriending kettles and shit.





I hate to say this, but I've become unhappy with Fred. Before you reach into the monitor to slap me across the face with a hammer, this isn't a permanent break up. It's more of a lets-see-other-people-to-reignite-the-spark-in-our-relationship kinda break. This is partly the reason why I haven't been updating my Flickr recently. Sure, I've been taking 365 photos, but they all seem so mediocre. I don't know what it is, but I can't apply what I do with film with digital. Everything I've been shooting lately has seemed so flat. Before this turns into a 40 page whining sesh, I'll just skip to the other end of the spectrum - why film photography is amazing.





...

It just is. Nothing else compares to the weight of a film camera nestled in your hand. Nothing else compares to the grain, the colours. Oh my god, the colours. Everything is so much more vibrant. If only life was like film photography.

I just needed to get that off my chest. Also, this blog needs a major, major, major revamp. Which will be coming soon, I promise.
