It's hard to describe that guilty feeling in your stomach when you haven't blogged in a lengthy period to anyone who isn't a blogger themselves. Any blogger though, will understand that feeling of guilt; of neglect. Poor, little bloggeen here hasn't had some TLC in quite a while... and needless, to say I feel very guilty. But, here I am and hopefully will be back blogging on a more regular basis in the future.
Sometime I stumble upon an image, and I stop and stare, and then think to myself: 'this is slightly perfect', and it will continue to inspire me long long afterwards.
This is one of those images.
The outfit on the right.
One for the inspiration board.

The whole look of 'Badlands' is verging on the unforgettable. The barren dusty scenery and the otherwordlyness of it all juxtaposed with the violent and unnerving storyline. Sissy Spacek is nymph like with freckles and strawberry blonde hair. She is startlingly naive in Alice in Wonderland style dresses in mint, lemon and sky blue and frilled bib front blouses. In a bid to mimic her deranged lover, a James Dean - esque Michael Sheen, she wears denim drainpipes, shirts and loafers with socks.
This girl is cool. Namely the shoes, but the dull tones - blush pink, slate gray and umber mixed with bright blue and of course, the leopard print shoes is rather fabulous.
The shirt on the right is also on the 'Want' list at the moment. It has to be the most gorgeous shirt in existence right now (hyperbole, I roll like that..). I am working for my college magazine now, and used this shirt in a recent photo shoot, and dear me, did it look amazing! It's sheer too which means it can be worn day and night. It buttons right to the top too...need I say more?
