OotD: I’ve got the Funk + Velvet Shorts in all their Glory

Check out my poem that I posted on YouTube! It wasn’t exactly the format that I wanted, but in the end I wanted my poems not to sit in a drawer for the rest of my life. Before Sunrise is a poem that reading through there are a lot of bits I would change, but you should at least listen to the end because it’s my favourite part (and it’s only one minute long anyway).

Today has been a tough day If I can be perfectly frank. This week has been a tough week. There are only so many times you can get rejected from opportunities before you start to feel like what you’re working for, whatever you’re working towards, is going nowhere. Why waste the time?

But taking these pictures was the starting point of falling out of that mindset, because clothes and taking picture of them is never a waste on time in my mind. Even though I spent hours trying to get a single good image (on four different occasions of the day) and had to re-do my makeup twice (that’s what happens when you haven’t worn it in months and have forgotten how much of a total-dick eyeliner can be!)

Shirt: Black Craft Cult | Shorts: Asos | Socks: Cotton On | Shoes: Rivers (similar) | Belt: Boohoo.com (similar)

On an outfit related note I wanted to take these pictures to show you my beautiful velvet shorts in all their glory. I feel like they come across very sack-like. All their sack-like glory I suppose?

The realisation that I’d snapped out my this funk came when I was dancing around to the playlist below. So, if you’re having a bit of a hard time, perhaps because of the start of the semester, I say that only good can come from lots of New Order, some Siouxsie and a little – just a little – Stevie Nicks and I urge you to check it out!

Oh and if you were wondering, yes, the title is a Might Boosh reference!

    I actually really like those shorts – I should totally make a pair in dark green velvet for the winter season.

    Also….I totally adore you shirt. Where can I buy it?

      The shirt is from Black Craft Cult. I would love to see your finished version on your blog! I wish I was brave enough to go up against velvet!

    These shorts rock! Look great on you and I think they might be enough to make me overcome my mistrust of shorts as an item of clothing – how bad can anything be when it can be made out of burgandy velvet?!

    These photos are all fantastic – so all your effort paid off!

      Aww, thanks! But that's a perfect saying, "how bad can anything be when it can be made out of burgandy velvet?!" All of the agreement!
