Outfit 28.12

The slow-lane holiday style of living is nearly over! I'm not a large fan of holidays, I prefer schedule. The fact that the bank has been closed for the past two days has infuriated me beyond belief, because it means that life has not officially 'started' yet. They get another holiday at New Years! They're only open for five hours a day! I realize now that if I'd had any sense I would have studied business and honours maths in school, then I could be a banker.

Who do you want to be from Mad Men? In theory, I don't want any of the ladies lives - I just finished the second season and everything is getting so complicated. If you've seen season three, don't spoil it for me please! I'm way behind, I just had a 2 day marathon of catching up.
I love this series, it really does live up to the hype. At face value, Betty, Joan and Peggy's lives all seem quite idyllic in their own very different way, but when you look beneath it all gets so murky. Anyone who isn't watching Mad Men, jump on the bandwagon! The costume and set designers deserves so much praise, they've really created a time warp back to the early sixties in this series. Visually I adore Joan, I don't think I've ever seen anyone more beautiful. She's perfect.

So a lot of my music I can never find on Youtube, so I decided to start my own account so I can upload songs I can't find otherwise! However for some reason Youtube won't upload whatever I make, even though I'm saving it in a compatible format. Anyone know an application that will let me make compatible videos (for an iMac)?
I'm sure I've posted these tracks before, but I re-heard them today and I love them so much. Mistabishi is really great, get his album Drop if you can - he makes both dubstep and drum n bass. If you like what you hear, more good tracks of his are Lean and White Collar Grime. The sample in Greed is taken from Eric Satie's Gymnopedie, a very beautiful composition. The other track - it's the Itchy Naan re-rub, and the drop is so unbelievable delicious.

Mistabishi - Greed

Mistabishi - Wipe Your Tears

Mistabishi - Damage

Hit That Gash - Foreign Beggars

Now! Here is my outfit. It's also a preview of my New Years outfit - I loved this look so much! The look is HERE on Lookbook, I have the details of the outfit labeled there. On the subject of clothes - the sale at Topshop, hurrah! I'm waiting for some lovely new shoes to arrive.

  33. I love Mad Men, I think my favourite female character is Miss Menken. She's tough and so damn sassy.

  34. Mad Men is a great series - but oh my, so much smoking !
    I think this look is one that would certainly make Men go Mad - no wonder its the most Hyped Look this week on Lookbook - nearly 2000 Hypes !!!
    Astonishing exciting look - beautiful.

  35. God bless Topshop sales! I purchased the same boutique boots you've got, and I just can't wait them to arrive! I will probably look like an hobbit with them on, but I don't care, I love them too much! :D

    talking about this look... wow! you're incredible girl! and if I was a designer I will surely choose you as a model!
