"No rest for the wicked" Book of Isaiah
Channelling my inner Paris chic today or well trying too. Not my favourite look of this year, I think the jumper doesn't work as well as I expected. Anyway, a few posts ago I had mentioned that I haven't stopped recently. I think my quote of the day was about how females can not rely on men but must strive for themselves especially in their careers. My boyfriend Connor was like hmmm *cough* *cough* is this a subtle but quite obvious quote directed at me??? I was like quiet, baby. All will be relived. Do not question what actually goes on in my head & my trail of thought. Hush.
I don't actually speak to him like that. I sound almost like Yoda. But to be honest it was sort of about him but not in such a negative way. Connor at the moment is back and worth to London a lot with work as he has just signed a contract with Elite Model Management. (Remember I flew over to London to watch him on a catwalk in the Elite Model Look competition in July?? Sexy leather dress? Blue heels?) Well, with him away a lot now, I am trying to keep as busy as possible. I miss him when he is away, he's my best friend so busy equals time flying & actually the good point is that I am able to focus completely on blogging.
He does these photos & I'm like what the heck??? I don't get this sexy man beast, I get my goofball.
So events galore! Last night I was at the Debenhams A/W launch. The girls were showcasing their key looks for Autumn/Winter 2013. A lot of monochrome, berry colours and animal print coming through. Was lovely to see all my blogger friends & have a cup of tea with them before I had to sprint off to yoga at 7pm. Namaste.
I am also one of the finalist in the Directory 14 competition as an individual with a standout sense of style in Northern Ireland. I had to go to judging on Monday night, where we were asked questions like what is fashion & what is style. The winners will be announced on the 19th of September at Riddel Hall, Stranmillis so keep an eye out to see how I get on. Fingers Crossed!
I actually destroyed a pair of jeans because of this event. I can't even acknowledge it or else I will probably freak out. I want boyfriend jeans, I want them so badly. There was a gorgeous pair in Zara yesterday when I was wandering around town. I haven't really tried to DIY any of my clothes due to the fact I am crap at physical creative things. Sure I have cut backs out of my tops to make them backless but other than that nothing. So I took one of my cropped pair of jeans and thought...hmmm I could cut some holes in these & they could be boyfriend style. No. They just looked like Edward Scissorhands and I were having a mad passionate love affair and he had tried to take my jeans off. Fail on that front.
So I have got loads of things on in the next few weeks. Culture tech this weekend, Directory 14 event, Cruise Fashion Show at the Merchant, Victoria Square Style September catwalk, RSVP/Oasis Ireland Style Blogger of the year. I know this isn't really a fashion post, more of a rant that my diary is stuck to my hand lately to make sure I remember everything but I think it's nice to let you know what's going on & to stay tuned for final few months of my challenge!! I think they are going to be the most difficult!
