My tv thing was just on the news: how embarrassing!!! They did all these cheesy shots of my eyes and the keyboard and played this sci-fi music in the background. It's weird to see yourself on screen; it's like I've been looking in the mirror all these years at something completely different. My hair is way too long.
Also today a guy came to my house to take a photo for a local paper. One thing I've learnt is that photographers and camera people are reeeeally weird. He made me stand on the fire escape in my garden, and then he kept making me laugh so I'll end up looking like a crazed maniac! My Nan thought he was 'dishy' so if your reading Mr photographer man, she may be 73 but she's available!
I bought some jeans dye, but decided it was too aqua. Then a pen burst in my bag before I could swap it so I'm stuck with flouro blue jeans! Hmmm maybe not. And my poor bag! It's full of smudgy blue marks.
Anyway, the actual purpose of this post was to talk about two girls me and Melissio saw in the Topshop concession in Selfridges, who were hands down the coolest girls I've ever seen in person. As in beyond facehunter cool. One was wearing a big, baggy, smocked pinstripe white shirt, with a tropical, floral dress over the top that had a puffy short skirt and lil sweetheart neckline which tied around her back. Her shoes were rouched little pointy boots that reminded me of Edwardian shoes, and she'd teamed it all with white tights with lined patterns in them. I didn't really even look at her friend properly as I was so in awe, but I did notice she was wearing vintage glasses, not sunglasses; clear lensed gold rimmed spectacles. I've never seen anyone dress like that here. In the changing room she said 'all the stuff I'm buying is so pretentious!!' You leave your house thinking yeah I look ok today, but seeing girls like that just makes you realise how far out you could go to challenge normal dress sense. It all about putting clothes together rather than wearing something individual. I can't wait to go to a whole new town and start university, where you don't need to apply to any rules or expect people to insult you if you wear something even remotely different!
And hi to new readers! Don't be afraid to say hello
