It’s Saturday night and I’m already itching for it to be Monday morning. I know this makes me a total freak of nature, but I’ve got some meetings I’m really looking forward to. I might be getting some exhibition space to play with…so photographers, illustrators and all around talented sorts – consider this your casting call. I’ve got a few ideas of what I’d like to do (one in particular tickles my fancy) but it all depends on the logistics of the matter and how much free labour I can find. I feel like a total creep as I keep scribbling down ideas in my notebook and adding scribbles to my to-do list (which for everything I’ve scored out I’ve added another 10 things needing my attention), but it keeps me out of mischief. Fingers crossed though.
Anyway, recently I’ve been looking at a lot of Japanese styled photo shoots. I loved Memoirs of a Geisha, so seeing alternative styling always appeals to me. This shoot was kicking around the Internet in 2009 (which is I know in Internet times, a forever ago)…but let’s call this one from the archives shall we? The “Cherry Blossom Girl” shot by Nicoline Patricia Malina is just balls to the wall sex. No escaping it, it pretty much drips out from the frame. I like that it’s a little out of focus and not overly polished, I think it adds a more personal sensuality to the pictures. Deff my cup of tea.
On a closing note: I feel like I’m the only one out there not completely in love with Peter Pan collar dresses. I tried one on today in Topshop and it was just…..very unflattering to say the least. Please tell me I’m not alone in this? I cry to you my sister’s in arms…let us rise against the peter pan collar dress.
NB: This does not apply to really nice shirts…just saying.
