i like my makeup in a mess.

tag from; capture the castle

What are you wearing now? american apparel matte black lame leggings, a slouchy black burnout tee, my dad's old denim jacket, vintage doc martens & a bowler hat.

What’s the last thing you read/are currently reading? im desperately trying to hunt down a used copy of 'geek love' by katherine dunn to read.

Do you nap a lot? only if its rainy.

Who was the last person you hugged? my norwegian forest cat called tom kitten.

What’s your current obsessions/addictions? besides alison & rosheen? hot cups of chai, bralette tops, secondhand mens button downs, dree hemingway, brogues, laura mercier skincare, rounded tips painted with nude varnish, ikea candles, clothing racks instead of closets, canvas totes & LOVE.

Which item from your closet are you wearing most lately? my sonic youth tee; i almost live in it. also im pairing my new paper bag trousers with everything these days & my vintage maxi tank dress is getting a lot more wear now that the weathers warming up.

What's for dinner? vermicelli in a roasted garlic sauce.

What was the last thing you bought? an ikea candle that smells just like the affinia 50 - the hotel i stayed at my first trip to nyc.

What are you listening to right now? im really enjoying having the whole of moloko's 'do you like my tight sweater?' playing on repeat. with this track as a current favourite.

If you could have any super power, what would it be? teleportation.

What is your favorite weather, and why? dreary, chilly, rainy days because theyre quite poetic & romantic in their own melancholic way.

What time do you usually get up? five minutes before i have to.

What is your most challenging goal right now? finding an apartment/job/internship in nyc.

Say something to the person who tagged you: i love how well thought out & therefore thought provoking your posts are. i love that you arent afraid to share your opinions & actually make your blog your own rather than simply posting a pretty photo everyday.

If you could have a house–totally paid for, fully furnished–anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be? london or the nearby countryside.

Favorite vacation spot? paris in the springtime.

What is your favorite item of clothing? its too hard to choose just one, but all my vintage pieces are a definite favourite for their own history & for the memories i have of the places ive found them in.

Favorite pair of shoes you keep going back to over and over, even though your closet is overflowing with a zillion others: my heeled oxfords & knee high flat boots.

Name one thing you cannot live without: inspiration. in the form of music, art, people, cities, clothes, photography, poetry, the list goes on...

What time is bed time? 4am.

If you could wake up anywhere tomorrow morning, where would it be? as an up & coming artists muse; atop white sheets in his minimalist decorated apartment to the sounds of early morning traffic in the middle of some glamourous fashionable city.

i tag; stevie, lizzy, jess, meg & lana, tinsley, tyler & róisín.

I read Geek Love after I heard Roisin loves it too.
It was the most bizzare book I've ever read.
I didn't like how it ended though.
I hope you find it!
