wild is the wind these past few weeks. and wild the amount of kids graduating this year. this skirt proved perfect for both, i bought it on ebay a few weeks ago, i have to say i've never laid eyes on such an amazing maxi skirt as this one. it's cotton, high waisted, comfortable, great go go style and the silhouette is to die for.

Shop update: 'Oh May!'

May i think was our most exciting and ambitious month yet, the shop is in a very happy place i reckon. almost all the photos have been updated and we had the biggest selection we've ever had. 35 new items this month! wohoo! lot's of designer, denim and shoes. hopefully as the months progress we're able to increase the amounts of our selections. as long as the hunting is good, i'm able to find good stuff for ya!

you can find the rest of the May finds and more in the shop!

Vade Mecum

I bought a Harry Potter inspired necklace from my friends shop called Vade Mecum! her lovely shop is steampunk inspired jewelry all one of a kind, handmade by her. I'm not one to buy jewelry, i don't wear it so much but when i saw the 'Golden Snitch' necklace i was bedazzled. and the 'snitch' is a locket, so you can open it and put a picture in it if you like. how could i say no to that! a truly original piece. for all you Harry Potter fans this is the necklace for you!

and if that wasn't enough, to my surprise i got another necklace as a gift! thank you Kara! a long key chain with a little virgin mary pendant resembling a rosary necklace.

for more Vade Mecum, visit her etsy shop.

Summer II: bouncy!

"bouncy, bouncy, ooh such a good time! bouncy, bouncy, somersault summertime!" - The Mighty Boosh

yes it was time i made one of these, it's too jolly and happy in the atmosphere to refuse a jumping photoshoot. in summer I: standard i gave you the down low on the outfit, the standard stuff, the standard poses, so i won't go into that.

since i am a one man band for the shop, the poses can get tedious, repetitive, tiring... so it was refreshing and awakening to use other muscles in my body for more acrobatic-like poses. i might try to take it to the next level on another shoot.

like in the episode of Howards birthday in 'The Mighty Boosh' i wish i had a bouncy castle so i can get down to some serious jumping and get some grade A poses. how cool would that be!

my favourite photos of this lot is the first two, the first one i look like i just casually elevated myself, and the second... god i have no words... my hair says it all!

Summer I: standard

this tank was originally meant to be for the shop, and i was all geared up to take photos of it.  it's a size uk 12-14 or something so i didn't even consider it for myself but i put it on and i couldn't believe it, it was a match made in heaven my friends. so naturally i couldn't say no to this wonderful vintage 70s tank top.
on my latest hunt i also found this gorgeous camel color leather suede jacket. i had been on the search for something like this for the summer so i was pretty thrilled to make it mine.
it seems so far the summer is looking pretty bright, promising and exciting. so exciting in fact, that i did a second take of this outfit, it's looking pretty bouncy my friends.
catch it here on Summer II: bouncy!

heads up! i just added twenty new items to the shop! they are looking pretty dope and fresh actually, go check it out. i will do a post of the this very soon. find all the goodness in my shop!

we've been struck by a sudden heatwave in may, summer is upon us intensely! my body temperature is all in a jumble and my outfit choices... but nonetheless i am thoroughly enjoying this.
the key to this outfit was easy breezy, and the heatwave gave me a reason to finally pull out my floral cycling shorts which i hadn't had a chance to wear yet, i've got some ideas in the back of my mind of other ways to wear these cause i think they're bitching and they need a chance to shine in this world. so you'll probably see them again very soon but in a whole new light perhaps...

i've been hunting today so stay tuned for part II of our Oh May! finds.

go with your gut, it's full of surprises

today i took like a million photos for the shop, it was a long and unpredictable process. the light kept shifting every two seconds so i had to keep changing the settings on the camera every two seconds! geez louise! but i'm pretty satisfied with the results. you can see what's ahead these coming days in our "Oh May!" album.
this is a 'did not think, just did' outfit. sometimes those tend to be the most satisfying, at least for me. because they're created on a whim, or created on impulse, the result is carefree. you should try it, it feels really good! i even drink from the "wtf?" looks i get from people, ah haters... you gotta love them!
on another note i took for a short spin my new vintage sandals i got on etsy. i love them!! i will try to get better shots of them on another occasion. they are adorable and easy and i think i could get away with wearing them with practically anything.
