London Trekker

Todays outfit for a load of castings - looking like a tourist - basically all I can do is work with what I have. Considering I spent last year with summer in europe then summer in Australia my winter wardrobe is more a hotch potch of what I could scrouge together, like a conversion of my summer clothes with a few extra coats and tights here and there. The brown coat with the fur collar was a little something I found in a bag of clothing about to be disposed of in the lobby of my old apartment building. One womans trash is a another girls treasure! It doesnt really co-ordinate with most of my pieces but its really warm, wool and angora. Hopefully if can get enough work I can supplement my suitcase full of things with a few new items so my style can be a little more commendable.
A few things I do need to post about - the sensational Pony Ryder posted my little greeting a while ago and I forgot to post about it, so I've now got a link HERE.
Also - whowhatwear featured me as a Myspace Muse for december - see HERE so thanks to those lovely ladies who pointed that out to me!
Finally, Models1 have updated my profile on the website HERE - just for those who haven't already seen them. I get so tired of seeing the same pictures of myself all the time...

Sleep Rant: The last four nights have been tough for me as I'm still adjusting to the new timezone - I keep falling asleep early and waking at exactly 3am each night. Last night I thought I'd combat the problem by managing to stay awake until 10.30pm and I still woke at 3! It really is a mystery... perhaps there is a cheeky poltergeist in my room that doesnt like people to sleep after 3am! What ever it is its wreaking havoc on the productivity of my day - I've been really tired and thats why I haven't managed the inspiration to take decent photos for my blog.

Finally I'd to wish a big Happy Birthday to my little sister Chloe - I'm sorry I can't be with you sis!

I love your bowler hat! perfect size and color in my opinion.. ;-)

Its also comforting to know that right now, there is also one other person in the world who cant sleep past 3am. I dont feel so alone anymore.

you LOOK amazing in anything + everything.
and this layering + winter style IS perfection.

love the leather details.. with the short skirt... plus those h&m-ers are PERFECT london weather.

oh my. i get jet-lag bad! it sticks with me for about a week, so i'm sure in a few days you will be sleeping through the night.

weather + missing fam + loved ones makes it all harder to adjust!

congrats on all the amazing features.
you deserve every last drop of it.
zanita = pure style.

The rainy London! You look great. You have to go to Camdon town, there are a lot of thrift stores. Enjoy the time in London.

Midnight traveller said...

I just love this. The whole London backdrop, the hat. It's like the stylish girl version of Oliver Twist. (That IS a compliment! Twisted but true). It's perfect in so many ways.
You just always get it right
