The Hermit

Well, I am on what we in the industry (the student industry!) call a footnoting break. I am one of those silly people who never adds footnotes to essays until the essay is finished, leaving me with the daunting task of adding all of my footnotes at the last minute. I've told myself for the last four years that I'd eventually break this habit, but it's the last essay of my undergraduate degree and here I am, still doing it. Still silly.

To be honest, I'm not really leaving the house at the moment. I ducked out yesterday to spend my last thirty dollars on "grocery" shopping - spinach, a bag of coffee and the latest issue of Lula magazine. And that was it. The rest of the time, I'm in front of my computer, either working hard, or pretending to work hard while I play Solitaire. This means that I've only been wearing petticoats and bed socks day in and day out, but today, after reading Issue 7 of Lula, I felt motivated to wear something more interesting ... or something ... black, at least.

So here's today's outfit, courtesy of a quasi-gothic-themed magazine:

gawth with a splash of pinks!

Wearing:

  • Black chiffon 'Tokito' dress with balloon sleeves. Bought for 25 bucks at a Myer stocktake sale. I intended to wear it to paint in, but I like it too much!
  • Pink ankle boots with button detail, bought in Vietnam in 2005.
  • Lace scarf, thrifted, held together with a pink rhinestone cameo pin I bought on eBay.
