Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting


Dress - 1960s vintage, via eBay // Necklace - 1960s vintage // shoes - New Look (old)

This dress was a recent lucky find on eBay. I've had quite a bit of luck on eBay lately, with my music collection as well as my wardrobe, and I'm quite excited to share my finds with you in the next few outfit posts. I initially had my eye on this dress when it was 'Buy It Now', but unfortunately it was too expensive but I put it in my watchlist anyway (does anyone else do that? I know I wasn't going to buy it at that price, but I like to look at things now and then and imagine). I got a notification that it had been relisted, and this time as an auction and as the only bidder I swooped it up for a bargain. It was even lovelier when it arrived as I hadn't noticed the lime green and acid orange colours in the pattern from the photographs.



It was uncharacteristically warm for January when I wore this outfit, which gave me the opportunity to wear my new-to-me coat that I got over Christmas. Where was I going, you may ask? Why, to hand in my dissertation!! I can't tell you how much weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I handed in my digital copy on the Wednesday, and then on Friday went into uni to hand in the bound, printed copy. It's filled my every waking moment these past few weeks, when I haven't been sat at my computer furiously typing away I've been mentally composing what I want to write next. It's been quite stressful, but I'm also really proud of my final paper. Writing is never something that's come to me naturally, but the fact that I've been blogging for so long has really helped me to learn to express myself and find my voice. I feel like I've written something I'm passionate about (well, it is about Pink Floyd!) and that that passion truly came through in my paper and made it so I had something genuine to write about.

This weekend is the first I've had to genuinely relax, and my brain has felt like scrambled eggs so it's just as well. I've spent it trying to catch up with everything I've had to neglect whilst I was writing, and took the time to draw for myself as it's been far too long and is my favourite way to reset myself. It was Nick Mason's birthday on Saturday, and as he's one of my favourite members of Pink Floyd I took the opportunity to draw him. I really struggled to find a high quality image I liked, and couldn't in the end. Considering my reference photo looked as though it had been taken with a potato and I had to use my imagination for the finer details, I'm quite pleased with how it came out!

  1. i love the coat and dress combo! well done on your dissertation and i've got my fingers crossed that you get a good grade! and how funny that it's about pink floyd though, as i've recently had a lecturer/tutor who had done some of his work on the same subject and was always talking about the band, haha. xx
