Silent All These Years

Happy Tuesday.

I have some great news to share soon. Hence I juxtaposed the post with a slightly somber tone. Hope you enjoy :)

Today's airy fairy dreamy look is brought to you again by the talented Iulia Agnew Photography and Agnew Makeup Artistry.

I admire how Iulia transforms me via the magic of her lens, with the skilled brush stroke of Agnew Makeup Artistry, the out come is simply sublime.

Their craft is truly inspiring. The adequately fit the feeling, I have borrowed words from Oscar Wilde

Silentium Amoris (The Silence of Love)

As often-times the too resplendent sun
Hurries the pallid and reluctant moon
Back to her sombre cave, ere she hath won
A single ballad from the nightingale,
So doth thy Beauty make my lips to fail,
And all my sweetest singing out of tune.

And as at dawn across the level mead
On wings impetuous some wind will come,
And with its too harsh kisses break the reed
Which was its only instrument of song,
So my too stormy passions work me wrong,
And for excess of Love my Love is dumb.

But surely unto Thee mine eyes did show
Why I am silent, and my lute unstrung;
Else it were better we should part, and go,
Thou to some lips of sweeter melody,
And I to nurse the barren memory
Of unkissed kisses, and songs never sung.

Outfit: négligée of yesteryear can now be worn as outer wear, when styled properly.

Happy Hipster Christmas

Today turned out to be a 2 post day. I feel amazing that this morning Jeannie of gracefully50 nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award. I have only been at this for a short amount of time. So far I have received warm welcomes from the community, this hobby has proven to be more than just some self amusement project. It is now really enriching my life.

Now back to my original post.

It's three more sleeps until Christmas morning!

This year, the end kind of creeped up on me. Tomorrow, I begin my winter holidays. Can't wait to just lay around and do nothing.

A few weeks ago, Community Thrift and Vintage, one of my favourite places to shop at, opened their second store locations. During the visit, I found the most amazing sweater!

It looks brand new and never been washed! So hipster chic.

It will probably be my main lounge wear during my break.

These are some activities I will engage in while being a chic hipster during this holiday.

Maybe I will stand again. Is it Christmas yet?

Fine, I will read a book. Chairs, interesting...

Oh, someone's at the door.

Ah, it's my boyfriend. Now he can join me! This is what we are going to do together, in both of our hipster sweaters.

And when it's finally Christmas, we will do this.

This is how hipster celebrate Christmas isn't it? My mind has been scrambled a bit from listening to Christmas music all day long since the first of December.

I hope everyone is faring well with all the festive preparations. It's almost that time of the year.

On him, vintage sweater and turtle neck from his parents' closet, jeans from Fidelity Denim, sneakers from Aldo.

Merry Christmas!
