Sketch: What to do with stupid fabric...

But worse so, back to the point
You are no longer the flower
And the sun and most importantly the garden
Or the gardener
A muse
Your amusement
I am used
It's all ruined if you meet their friends...

- Marilyn Manson, The Gardener

...which was the song I heard while sitting at 3 a.m. at my desk thinking of what to sew with this stupid fabric I got meters of from someone in Romania. A while ago. A long while ago. I've already sewed a flared midi-skirt with matching hair-bow out of it. But I still got so much left...

Well, and here's the idea. Or at least, how it should look like when it's done. A cute maxi-dress for summer. The fabric is very light, it's more polyester than cotton, but still... The back of the dress should be longer than the front. Maybe the difference won't be this visible. Oh and I still don't know whether I should do this as a one-piece-dress or first cut the top and then a full-circular skirt-piece. I want the skirt to be wide, but not necessarily circular. Mh... we'll see. First I gotta write the first exams. The first one is up this Saturday. I'm already freakin' out about it, that's why I haven't updated anything here. But well... this weekend I'm driving home, I'll go out, I'll go shopping, and everything will be alright. I'm sure. However, here are the ugly sketches.

Outfit-Post: Don't break, don't break... heart, and I won't break your (goddamnfucking) heart-shaped glasses...

Nooooo, I'm not posting this song. It's just the tune that's playing in my head each time I'm wearing these glasses. They were a great reward I got at Chictopia. The seller itself is shopcalico (click here ;D), a supercute store with supercute accessory. So... thanks Chictopia for these glasses! I've been searching so long for them. For anyone not on or even not knowing Chictopia, here you go (click click click...).

And now the outfit itself. With my favourite glasses and my favourite summer dress. Featuring cheap heart-shaped purse I bought in Dublin.

Have a nice week, dear readers!
(Everything is better than my week, desperately working on catching up with studies...)

P.S.: On the topic of heart-shaped glasses and Mr. Manson:
Evan Rachel Wood confessed via Twitter that "he did". She's been asked by a fan.
Another stupid trivia: He recently trumped some heart-shaped glasses at a concert with his knife-shaped microphone. Someone front row was wearing such glasses (pink - maybe that's why...), he took them, broke them and threw them back somewhere in the middle of the audience. I'll NEVER wear these glasses to a MM-concert. He still must be pissed.

Outfit-Post: Clouds in my coffee

No, this song isn't dedicated to anyone. I just love the "clouds in my coffee" line. And the song itself. Just as a disclaimer.

First off: I'm incredibly sorry I haven't written or uploaded anything these weeks. I had absolutely no working Internet connection. I don't count my mobile-connection as working. At least, not for blogging. It took me two weeks and three dates to get my connection installed. I hate installers. I freakin' hate these guys. Though the guy that actually appeared spontaneously after I terrorized the secretary was quite nice. Best part of it, I even understood him, which isn't usual here in Bavaria...
Anyhow, now I'm gonna blog, despite upcoming exams. I need distraction from Constitutional Law. The German and the UK one. Enough excuses, it's gettin' spring here, I already removed the coats from my closets and brought the cute little summer dresses back. Here we go, a first glimpse of spring!

The blazer always reminds me of all those classical philologists at my former school and at university... It's a strange trend among them. Plaid blazers, mostly in earthen tones, and with leather patches... But for whoever's sake they ain't wearing shorts!
By the way, I bought the matching blazer months after I bought the shorts. They're from the same set, as you can notice.. The shorts weren't in the store then anymore. But the blazer wasn't in store when I bought the shorts. Plus while the shorts have EU size 34, the blazer is 38. I don't get these sizes...
Oh and I'm beginning to like my new old hair-color. Though it's getting damn hot in the sun with black hair.

So, have a nice week, and be prepared for the next post soon! ^__-

P.S.: U like my new header?
