Eight dollar Rue21 shoes of INIFINITE wanting..!

snippet & ink: daily wedding inspiration: Real Wedding: Ayesha & Zachary.

ARM.A.GAD. I WANT these shoes as my wedding shoes! Gawds, they’re sold out at Rue21, HOW DARE YOU BE SOLD OUT! xD

Unimpressed Nett is unimpressed. xD Except for where I’m totally impressed BY the shoes themselves. Oh well, back to drooling over tall but flat/platformed boots..! xD

I am making myself this dress. For no reason. I will wear it in the house baking bread.

That is all.

Whirlingturban. What’s’s with all the awesome!?

No, I’m serious, what IS up with all of it!? xD Largely my favourites at Whirlingturban are all variations on the same theme, but what delicious variations they are! I mean come on the red and blue-teal details on this skirt and playsuit style!? Yes, you heard me PLAY. SUIT! xD xD LAWLS THE LITTLE SHORTS :D DELICIOUS!! SO WANT!

Other seriously serious wants include the Emerald & Peacock Sharkskin (do want to just potter about in O_O), Jumbo Polka Dot Wing Bust Dress, Emerald & Peacock Wing Bust Dress (OOOM NOM NOM NOM NOM!!). Plus, I’m a big fan of three of their off-the-rack bridal options: Woven by Hand, Ivory Kissed with Gold, & Posies on Cream with Palest Pink Lining. Scrumptious!

You should’ve seen them! In his slim little Phaeton, the scandal!

Greg’s flu has managed to mutate itself while holidaying in his person. Consequently, it has now found the great magnanimity to settle into me in an attempt at repeat custom. Thanks very much, influenza. Enjoy your stay, please, DON’T come again…

At any rate its left me lying flat in bed, with the novel feeling at least that today I am unable to stand and my muscles are screaming for completely out of the ordinary reasons. Its almost pleasant, conceptually speaking. Unfortunately, the reality is that even my shins hurt. WHAT KIND OF FLU EFFECTS ONE’S SHINS?! Preposterous!

So I’m attempting to battle on as always, get some work done and in the meantime I get to read up on surprisingly enlightening articles on typographic maturation: “Phaeton” – A classic Bearskinrug Article. When DOES one use those extra characters save for flights of fancy when designing visual elements?

Who doesn’t love them some sexy dress action? :D

Y posted saying she’d bought an outfit recently from Pin Up Girl Clothing which spurred me to fling myself back at the site with glee! :D Last time I was there, this super delicious Ava Dress in Jade Green was coming soon and not yet available. MY GOD is it still ever delicious! Dresses that make you want to have red hair for a thousand. Well, for $96USD, but who’s counting? xD

As curvy as that model is, however, I HIGHLY doubt I’d be able to actually wear that dress, my hips, thighs and seriously bustle-butt would overflow it I fear. xD

FORTUNATELY, or unfortunately depending on your point of view, I lust after so many other outfits at PinUp Girl that my sadness at bodyshape incompatibility fades into obscurity pretty DAMN fast.

Some faves? “Patrice” 60’s Pleated Dress (It’s even on sale!), Rose Print Evelyn Dress (the print of which I think I would actually find hideous but here it works so awesome!), Heidi Black Cherry Dress MAN I’ve wanted that for aaaaaages! *covets* And finally This Vintage Inspired Sailor Swing Dress. Come ON How many flavours of awesome could one dress be? xD

Sweaters to Knit that He WONT Wear, I’m sure you mean…

Just checking mail this morning, and though my eye was instantly drawn to this lovely One Skein project book – I’m ALWAYS trying to make my projects be super fast so you can get that almost instant feeling of accomplishment xD – my eye was really HIJACKED by: HURT – Men In Knits: Sweaters to Knit that He WILL Wear – Interweave.

Hurt is right. What the hell he WILL wear? Because you’ve brainwashed him? Why would you even WANT him to wear a jumper eleventy billion sizes to large for him. O_O;; Greg could probably put that on and then I’d be unable to locate him for weeks.

DO WANT MY MAN TO LOOK SUPER HOT KTHX! RATHER NOT LOSE HIM UNDER A PILE OF YARN O_O;;;

These boots are constructed to be suitable for various perambulations…

How hot are these Ros Hommerson Black Women’s Spin Wide Calf Boots?! I know I know, they’ve got a heel so I probably can’t wear them with my pita of a back, BUT STIL!L They’re not TOO high and they’d look totally hot next year for Ali & Damien (aka Alien! :D <333)’s wedding under our awesomely voluminous dresses. I could make matching boned fabric spats to go on them too! OMG THE PRETTIES! *joyface*

I do totally need more boot variety in my wardrobe, the awesome pair that Deasilvae gave me for Christmas are holding their own against a shoe-torturing Nett, but I’d like to not torture them so much and be able to mix it up a bit.

Plus, Greg LOVES him some boot on the ladies ;) :D

SO MUCH SKIRT! <3

APPARENTLY, Greg is too much of a sweet as hell modern guy to buy me chauvinistic overtone gifts and so asked me to post yet another wishlist of goods. OMG SO HARD! *laughs* WHAT DO I WANT THAT’S NOT YARN, FABRIC OR KITCHENGOODS?! xD

The answer? Well OBVIOUSLY its clothes *laughs* I am so lacking in new/wearable dresses and tights that haven’t been rendered crotchless from being worn more than once in their lives >_<;; Then I remembered I had the Vivien of Holloway website open since January, so I could randomly click back to those tabs and fawn over the mountains of skirt and deliciously constructed boned bodices…

Not just in red, but turquoise too! And of course I’m dying to have a trucktonne of hugely huge petticoats (RED! WHITE! PIIIINK!!) to go with them and to go under other clothes I already have/plan to make. MmMMmmmmm..! Petticoats aren’t hard to make but they’re SO TIME CONSUMING! *laughs*

Unfortunately these aren’t exactly what Greg was asking for, I do believe he wanted me to list things that you could buy locally in a shop. DARN IT! *laughs more* But still, nothing can stop me from fawning over these a little longer. ^_^

In a beautiful pea green boat…

The owl and the pussy cat went to sea...

I’m pretty sure that Essie warned me that this set was going to be released soon, and warning is so totally the correct word here. The fabrics and patterns in Heather Ross’s Far Far Away II set conjure up SO MANY awesome project ideas I am full to bursting.

I somehow think, however, that Greg wont let me purchase a mess of smiley moons and wistful cats to make new quilt covers/pillow cases for our shared bed however… ^_^;; xD Though I DO really need to find some awesome fabric combinations that we both like (YES! My man does actually have an opinion on fabric *outs him*) to make us more. Our totally mismatched bedding is starting to urk me, even though the reason we went that way was because of lack of funds and that together it became ‘OURS.’ <3

Confession time? I used to HATE the Owl & the Pussycat when I was a kid. Used to drive me batty that the cat didn’t just eat the owl. DID IT HAVE NO SENSE OF PRESERVATION!? But now it just fills me with such a feeling of whimsical nostalgia that I adore any reference to it when I stumble upon it.

Old age hypocrisy, apparently I cherish it.

Is the Puppy in the package deal? :D

Does the doggie come with the house? :D

This afternoon I jump online and Jenji, bless her hearts, (yes. HEARTS! xD) didn’t even say hello, just linked me this photospam of Four Story Townhouse at DigsDigs with the word: Pretty.

I’m going to have to say OMG YES! O_O; <33333 You could take photos of stuff ANYWHERE and the light would be so nice for it. *has clearly warped priorities* I also ADORE all the wood accents and the little loft and the bathroom door of ye olde winne. I love looking at interiors that have been decorated with a strong mix of vintage/antique and fresh-from-the-flat-pack.
