Come closer and see
see into the trees
find the girl
while you can

Getting the material for this post actually made me wear a dress that I've only worn like two times before. Apart from that, the process of choosing the outfit for this photoshoot was quite unusual, because of the fact that me and Basia had first chosen the spot, and then we were thinking of something that would look good in that environment. There was an idea of having these photographs taken in the sunshine, but that was not to come, but I think they turned out quite nice anyway. Actually, we've had a little bit of a laugh when taking these, as we could hear constant cheering and singing from the nearby football stadium, we really found it quite entertaining:D
The dress is just so much different from the clothes I usually buy, mainly because of the print and colours, as I don't wear too many of them, at least not in one outfit. But when I've seen it on the sale racks last year ... for only 3 pounds, the colours and the dress as a whole managed to puts its charm on me strongly enough;)

My Sweet Prince
You are the One

The main purpose of this post is generally showing you my new skirt ;D When I've seen it on Topshop's sale rails and I've instantly fallen in love with it...especially its volume and shape. Even the sales lady was surprised it's still on the racks, as it is so beautiful and you'd think it'd sell faster for 10 pounds ;D Unfortunately, this time I had to take pictures on my own, and after a couple of home shots I decided to go out and take some pictures outdoors, because of poor indoors lighting. It sometimes felt a bit weird taking my photos in the park I went to, because of many people watching your every move in a curious way...but I was trying not to give any attention to it. So really, forgive me for quite bad quality photographs and the lack of themes or shoots today ;)
Oh! And I've watched the last episode of Gossip Girl today. I'm really sad that it's the end of this series, although I've heard that the new series is starting on last day of August, but I can't imagine the plot when every character is in a different uni etc....and how will I manage to survive without GG for more than 3 months?! ;D

I was always careless as a child

Zips are everywhere now and the zip dress from H&M I'm wearing in this post is probably everywhere as well. That is why I've tried to reinvent it, and wear it a bit differently. I've seen people wearing tops underneath it, which didn't look good, I've also seen people wearing tops over it, and this was quite alright, giving the impression of a zip skirt, which was lovely. I basically wanted to make a zip top of it, and as I've been wearing it with the tutu skirt for quite some time now, I figured out that it's time for it to be photographed:) Immediately after choosing an outfit for usual Sunday photoshoots, I knew exactly what location would suit it and it's actually a building that's in the park situated almost next to my flat. As soon as me and Basia got out to take these, it started to rain, so it was like -oh so now what ...just take a couple of photos quickly and we'll leave...- and it really was a couple of shots because in about two minutes it was raining quite heavily;D Basically, we've returned to the spot in the afternoon when the sun came back, but I think the photos taken when it was grey and rainy turned out better...
And....tomorrow I'm going to the cinema to see Angels and Demons ...I can't wait! Hope I won't be disappointed as it was with Da Vinci Code, because the book was superb.

Someone take these dreams away
That point me to another day
A duel of personalities
That stretch all true realities

There have been so many times that people were writing that I look like Alice In Wonderland kind of girl looking at some of my pictures, therefore there was no choice, but to have this theme photographed :D I've already 'starred' as Alice on a Disney-themed birthday party of my friend about a year ago, but I wanted to update the look and toughen it up with studded accessories. Last Sunday was the perfect opportunity to take these pictures so me and Basia, who now takes all of my outdoor pictures, went for a long 'walk' as it was quite sunny and warm, which is rather unusual for this part of the world (I need more sun!). The photos were taken in the 'woody-park' surrounding the Mills observatory in Dundee, which was the perfect location I think, although we've had some problems with the lighting. After the 'photoshoot', we were just hanging out on the meadow making daisy chains and enjoying the sun. Actually, I had last made a daisy chain when I was a little girl, and until last Sunday I wasn't sure I'd remember how to make them, but I did..I guess you never forget certain skills...it's probably like with riding a bike :D

Inspired by many bloggers, cobra snake photos and lookbook I've had this outfit in my head for quite some time. After the recent days being so cloudy, cold, rainy and gloomy, I decided to do some home photo shoot and postpone my fairy tale themed outdoor ones. The basic idea for this outfit was to incorporate the suspenders, so I was building everything else around them. And them being quite a brave element, I had to make sure the rest was quite calm and not drawing too much attention. Immediately, I thought about my Placebo t shirt ( I love them! My nr 1 band in the world:D ), which I adore, but didn't really have too many chances to wear. Now I'll definitely wear it more! I couldn't decide whether to get shorts or a skirt for it, so I've tried it with both, and I like both versions. I've also done some DIY studding at the back of these shorts, which you can see on that last litte picture. I'm now crazy about studding everything! I've done shoes, bags, shorts and I'm planning on some blazer and skirt thing.
