Masquerade

It’s sparkling oustide

But she waits indoors

Where the snow never comes

And the rain never pours

Where it’s peaceful and quiet

And slow and serene

Where the sounds of the riot

Don’t know where she’s been

(I feel a bit pretentious writing about a photoshoot I’m in, but I hope you like it.)

Doll Face?

The irony about photographs is that you don’t always know what was happening to the person in them.

For example, if I didn’t tell you, you would never know that I was laughing at the fact that my photographer had just said the last picture was ‘gross.’ I really wasn’t offended, I honestly just found it funny, and this is the result. My point is, pictures are more about what you see in them than what is really going on. So, what do you see in my pictures? I’m curious, because what we see in something says a lot about who we are too. Anyways, sorry to get all philosophical on you, I just didn’t know what to post today so I thought I’d share that story and some thoughts.

Here are the picture details:

Earmuffs: Forever 21

Dress: Zara

Eyeliner: Make Up Forever #92 (The Famous Purple! It’s an eyeshadow, by the way.)

Lips: Combination of MAC Candy Yum-Yum Lipstick (That’s a really annoying name, by the way.), Lancome Le Rouge Absolu in SatinFuschia, MAC True Babe lipglass, and MAC Reflects Very Pink Glitter

Okay, so I’ll leave you with the song that was stuck in my head this morning. I went through perhaps the craziest and longest phase thus far listening to this band’s two CD’s. Literally, I would listen to the CD’s on repeat throughout the day, and this went on for about a month. Hence, even though I’m out of the phase, sometimes I still get a random phrase of one of their songs in my head, and I have to listen to it. That was the case this morning.

Are You Brit Enough?

I’m a bit of an anglophile, truth be told. I love the accent, probably like any other American girl, but it’s more than that. After all, we were once a part of their world, that is before we became the rebel country. Anyways, the British do things right. They dress well *ahem Burberry* and they make some incredible music. The point of me saying all of this is that I love the quintessential British trench-coat.

This brings us back to Burberry. Right now, with Christopher Bailey at the helm, the Burberry ship is sailing straight to the top of my favorite designers list. Oh my goodness, I just cannot get enough of their beautiful fashion. For men and women, you just can’t go wrong with Burberry (especially the Prorsum line).

So, without further ado, I will be showing you my photos of the Brit look. This trench-coat was on sale at the Burberry store, and since it is my favorite color I couldn’t really resist. (I was already planning on buying a coat there, anyway.) The point is, I love this coat, and the color combo in these pictures is one of my favorites. So here are a bunch of pictures:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love that my hair is completely in my face in this one.

Hat: Vintage

Earrings and Black Bracelet: Old Navy

Dress and Tights: H&M

Trench: Burberry

Bangles: Forever 21

Shoes: Guess

Alright, so here it goes: My quintessential Brit playlist just to finish it all off.

Brit List

(I tried to keep this balanced between old and new, classic and obscure. Enjoy.)

The Cure – Pictures of You

(Robert Smith’s voice is so perfectly recognizable.)

You Me At Six – Jealous Minds Think Alike

Oasis – Wonderwall

(Too classic! I had to put it on here.)

Arctic Monkeys – Suck It And See

(A great example of how British sayings don’t always make sense to Americans. This song is not dirty.)

The Rolling Stones – Paint It Black

Los Campesinos! – The Sea Is A Good Place To Think Of The Future

The Beatles – Eleanor Rigby

Last Shadow Puppets – Separate And Ever Deadly

(If you’re not convinced by the way Miles sings “I didn’t hear,” then you’ll know their British when you hear them sing “butter and crumbs.”)

The Who – Pinball Wizard

The Vaccines – All In White

The Smiths – This Charming Man

(How can you have a British playlist without Morissey? Another completely recognizable voice!)

Bat For Lashes – Daniel

Muse – Escape

(That’s all for now. If you want more Brit music lists, let me know.)

Break The Rules…

I’m so excited to share these photos with you. Finally, someone else but me is in them! That person is my brother, and this is our photoshoot!

There’s no fashion rulebook.

We stand on tables in high heels.

We sit on bathroom counters.

We stare at ourselves far too long in mirrors.

We wear shoes without socks in winter.

And bright colors scream at the mundane weather

That we don’t care

Because

In the Kingdom of Fashion…

We all sweet-talk our way out of tickets.

(Hope you enjoyed.)
