feeling blue.

coat. hm. dress. vintage. shoes. marni.

you know it's cold in cape town when their is snow on table mountain.
south africans call it the blanket & say it's sleeping......
cute + cheesy at the same time. i guess you have to see how extremely flat it is to picture its covering.

today is by far the coldest day of the year, and i decided to pull out my oh-so-frilly-slip.
why, i truly don't know.
it was my only purchase from beacons closet in nyc.
i double slipped it up and bundled up in my fav. army coat.
musts right now: long johns. tea. fire. soup. sleeping in socks ( which is soooo hard to do, hey? i can never sleep with socks ) 
NO central heating. 7 degree chill = icicles.

well these past few days have been an emotional roller coaster.
a pre- mid-life crisis? do such things exist.
ahhhh all i want to do is cuddle up in a ball by the fire.

Love your slip dress + belt!
Oh and I do hope you find something to cure your blues dear!

Vivian said...

SA is such a beautiful place... and you look gorgeous, I'm loving the slip. Keep warm- drink lots of hot cocoa, cozy up under a blanket... hope you feel better soon, too. I know how it is, sometimes. Do something small that cheers you up :)

awww i'm sure you'll be feeling back to normal in a few days. my friend has a saying that i love. she says to be extra sweet to yourself when you're feeling low and to treat yourself like a kitten. so go warm up some milk, grab a blanket and indulge in magazines!

Hey L! How is my favorite real life Supermodel doing? Curling up in a ball by the fire doesn't sound so bad.... but I hope you are doing okay!

Love your dress - you look gorgeous, darling!

Damsels said...

love the way this feminine dress looks with the urban type sort of laid back green jacket .

great contrast here and not in the typical predictable way i usually see

thesydneygirl said...

oh you make me feel blue hearing how cold it is there! you poor things.

it's quite cold here in sydney too, but fortunately not that bad.

you STILL look fantastic considering you must be freezing in those photos. love the jacket.


Rach said...

Awesome way to work that slip dress. The jacket really brings it to a more casual rugged feel :]

I think that pre-mid-life crises do exist...I am turning 21 in a month and I am totally freaking out about it for no apparent reason. I think that it happens to the best of us. Give it few days and just focus on yourself.

You look stunning in that dressy dress... :)

I bet it is not as cold as it gets in Canada :P

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
