Many apologies for my lack of updates thus far but life is becoming hectic with university oncoming. Exciting but currently uncertain-fingers crossed for me that financial problems sort themselves out please. In my absence in the blogosphere certain celebrities have been knocking it out of the park style wise. Film festivals are packed back to back with red carpet premieres just made for beautiful gowns and Venice is just the city to revel in artistic creations that conjure up images of another time.
"Venice is like doing acid. If you can't take it with you after you either come down or move away, you were never really there in the first place."
I went to Venice as a teenager on an art trip with my school and it has stayed in the back of my head ever since calling me back. It was just so beautiful and laid back-a truly beautiful city with art and beauty over every bridge. I may have had eye-catching waist length braids but I never had the priviledge of wearing anything as beautiful as these girls...
I give the beautiful Michelle Williams a thumbs up for her Jason Wu gown.
Super cute rising star Elle Fanning was also at the Venice Film Festival to premiere her new movie 'Somewhere' by Sofia Coppola. I love the whimsical under-the-sea-blue Marc Jacobs dress she chose to grace the red carpet but the love stops there. The shoes may be age appopriate but they're less than fitting for a dress so divine it looks like it grew up out of the Venetian canals. Here are my shoe suggestions for walking in a city of water;
Heel conscious but ultra chic sude bow Giambattista Valli pumps or slightly more adventurous lace front Alais peep-toe ankle boots.
These coveted Alexander Wang peep-toe boots would have made her dress pop whilst the clear plastic crystal embellished Brian Atwood platform sandals would have played up the fantasy theme.
My name is Jasmin but I've always liked boys with girls' names and names that end in -ie.
I'm an insomniac. I like to stay up late to watch the sky change from blue to black to beige and blue again. I'm a critically indecisive realist whose in love with the little things. I enjoy writing lists and schedules but never stick to them. I want to learn to do a million things like speak Swedish, play guitar, skateboard, hula hoop and play poker. My mind is always turning over a million things but I am a simple girl and I never ask for much. I'm a typical nerd and I'm excited by fashion, photography, books, ideas and theories.
I could pour through books and magazines until my eyes dribbled down my face in a torrent of glitter and sequins. It's true.
I like to paint what I write, write what I think and photograph what I see.
