::B/S



::I can't remember the last time I looked forward to seeing a film at the theatre (I think it was the Witches at the BFI, or Performance at the BFI - either way, it was something Roeg and very old). But I've been looking forward to seeing the Portman-Cassel-Aronofsky (and Rodarte) flick Black Swan for months and months now. From the trailer it seems to be some take on Perfect Blue (the anime I couldn't watch whilst eating due to the gross stalker man's skin condition). Anyway I'm looking forward to the Rodarte costumes just as much as I am the plot, and watching Natalie Portman for 2 hours.

::I've got a thing for brunette models (and people in general). First model love was Marija Vujovic, who doesn't really do much these days after marrying some Serbian popstar. Then Monica Bellucci. Then Ksenia Khanovich, whose hair I've attempted some botched copy of. I also bleached the hell out of my hair 2 weeks ago: people, do not go to Bleach in Dalston and part with a stupid amount of money for a 45 min bleach job. It was so simple (although I can't remember which volume she used...) - come to me for Alexa hair.

It's my week off work and I've gone through nearly 100g of green sencha tea in a few days (even re-using it twice!). Some girlsz buy £50 beauty creams, me I'm gonna spend it all on a mammoth collection of green teas (and orchids).

::l'avenir

::I've been meaning to write a new fashion blog forever. I had a Livejournal account in university which was all about my love for boys' clothing and Brian Ferry hair cuts (really) but there's been a lack of substantial activity since then. For several months all I've been doing is stalking fashion blogs and collecting ideas. And now I've got one, inspired by this Erin Wasson quote:

I'm working all day and I have a dinner or something, I'll go from jeans and T-shirt to maybe a simple black dress. Same heels. Same hair and makeup. I really like the idea of being utilitarian. My dream is to edit down my wardrobe and be very Japanese, where you have one rolling rack and it's like your four T-shirts, your five dresses, your two pairs of jeans ... I love the idea of being super edited.
            -Erin Wasson, in The Guardian

So that's it! I'll be giving most of my clothes away, with the exception of the above-mentioned black dresses and t-shirts, in pursuit of the perfect black dresses and t-shirts. Budget is a significant limitation here, but that just adds to the challenge yo.
