Decided to combine my love of portraits with my passion for vintage and curious attire to present a little “head and shoulder snapshot of the day” series. Outfit posts, with class, and without pretense. I hope.
Shirt: Vintage & Thrift store. £10.
Lips: Mac Dubonnet. £15.
Foundation: None. £0.
Skin: Lush Celestial moisturiser. £12.
I was moaned at once for wearing this because “anyone over a 12 shouldn’t even look at a croptop.” - Well, fuck that. I look cute as hell.
Outfit, strangely nothing vintage.
Blouse: Topshop thrift, £10.
Jeans: Jonis @ Topshop, £36. (In a size fourteen, thank you very much.)
Skin: Lush Dream Cream, £12 & Lush Lovely Jubblies £17.
Blouse Collars, 1940s-50s, by Charlotte Dymock.
An unexpected departure.
I don’t really know how to go about starting this, so here is the letter I put in her coffin.
I’m sorry I wasn’t there when you died. However it happened.
I wish I’d been home.
I wish I’d let you sleep on my bed more often and I wish I’d held you more even though I know you’d never have allowed it.
I’ll miss you headbutting me, and purring when I nuzzled you back.
I’ll miss your giant paws and the fur between your toes that you didn’t like anyone touching. You were ticklish, I suppose.
I’ll miss your silent meow, and your really, really loud one.
I’ll take care of Sherlock and Agatha. They miss their mum, I think they know.
Dad misses you too. He’s a complete wreck.
I don’t remember the last kiss I gave you but I hope that you do.
You were beautiful, and you always will be to me.
Rest in peace, Toastie.
I love you. We all do.
I sat with her for a while and asked her to wake up. My breathing made her fur move up and down like her heartbeat did, and it tore me to pieces every time I held my breath and she remained still.
"If you won’t wake up, I hope you have a great sleep."
Toast’, I’ve loved you for six years and I’ll love you for many more.
Goodbye, my darling.
One year ago today she died. One year ago tomorrow we buried her.
I’m finding it.. difficult.
