Just For Now

Here's the day you hoped would never come
Don't feed me violins
just run with me through rows of speeding cars.
The papercuts, the cheating lovers
The coffee's never strong enough
i know you think it's more than just bad luck

There there baby
it's just text book stuff
it's in the ABC of growing up
Now, now darling
oh don't lose your head
cause none of us were angels
and you know I love you yeah

Sleeping pills know sleeping dogs lie
never far enough away
Glistening in the cold sweat of guilt
I've watched you slowly winding down for years
You can't keep on like this...
now's a bad a time as any

There there baby
it's just text book stuff
it's in the ABC of growing up
Now now darling
oh don't kill yourself
cause none of us were angels
and you know I love you yeah

it's ok by me..
it's ok by was a long time ago

strait sweater

It's been raining for a couple of days now around here, and I feel so reinvigorated....I was so sick and tired of the sunny weather , I do not like summer at huraaaaaaay for the newly established autumn :D:D:D:D. Temperature-wise, 'Wake me up when September ends' is no doubt the tune for me :)).

This revival is also visible within my wardrobe...I can finally play serious dressing-up again :))), just you wait an see:))). Today I opted for this beautiful silvery grey sweater I bought in Tel-Aviv, it was love at first site due to its resemblance to a strait jacket :D.

Dress: H&M (from Paris)
Basic black tee
Sweater: Sack's (from Tel-Aviv)
Earrings: gift from my sis (from Madrid)
Boots: Burberry

beloved desigual

I have not mentioned this before, but Desigual is one of my all-time prefferences when it comes to print madness. Well, them and Manish Arora, but I can't afford them (yet:D:D) .

Sometime about 6 or 7 years ago, they opened up a tiny shop on the Academiei street, and that's when I fell in love with them. That's also when I spent an entire college scholarship on a t-shirt (~ today's 35E) , quite a whole lot for my early student years, and for the regular t-shirt prices back then. But it was and it remains my favourite tee to this day. You can see it here, the huge screaming face in the last image :D.
Unfortunately, probably because of customers penury, this tiny darling shop closed about 1 year later (or maybe half a year, I don't remember precisely), just about when I had managed to scrape up the money to buy another tee ( :(((((( ) .Literally.It was Friday that I decided to buy it, but didn't have enough dough ( ;)) ); Monday by the time I got the money (that mum was sending weekly for food and all:D), and exactly on that Monday they closed the shop. I remember as if it were yesterday, that's how traumatized I was:)))) (and partially still am :)) ) . I have kept their catalogue and I can scan it to show you what I missed...***

Coming back to nowadays, my folks returned from their Madrid vacation, and guess what they brought me? One piece Desigual dress + one piece Desigual t-shirt ...I couldn't believe it, as they didn't know that I liked them so much. I mean they know my clothes, but they couldn't care less about who made them (which to a certain extent is better, they would probably be mortified by how much I spend on unnecessary garments :D ), so.....Anyways, my sis told me my mum was just as smitten when she entered one of their Madrid stores as I was when I stepped into our ex-local one, hence..tadaaaaaaa:D:D:D Me=happy happy :D:D. She also bought a dress and a skirt for my sister, which I will post when I get her to photoshoot for me :D.

I ♥ this kimono-inspired dress , as it is like wearing layers and layers of clothes due to its various prints... ♥ ♥

Dress: Desigual
Boots: Hush Puppies
Bag: PSS (from New Jersey)
Vest : New Yorker
Earrings: a gift from my sister (from Madrid)

*** [Later Edit] I found an image of the tee that skipped my hands. here it is...(sigh...)

BTW, if anyone knows any (online) store that retails previous collections' Desigual products, please let me know :D:D.
