Annebeth 's Thoughts:

I haven’t had time to blog all day because I had that early christmasparty with my family today. Worst thing is: I didn’t even have the time to take pictures, so sad because I looked so nice! haha. I ended up changing out of my red velvet self altered dress (of course, whenever you prepare something you end up not using it) because it was too warm. Seriously, how hot is skin tight velvet? Literally speaking of course! :D So I ended up going for this really pretty white strapless midi length H&M dress. I’ll try and photograph both dresses tomorrow or the day after. I loved em both, the red one was really glamorous and sort of Joan Holloway sexy, and the white one was all pretty and all Betty Draper princessy. Yes, I’m totally obsessed with Mad Men. I’ve seen quite a number of fine tv series, but Mad Men is the very best I’ve ever seen. The visuals, the characters, the performances and THE WRITING. It’s really absolutely perfect once you get past all of the smoking and drinking. I’m in love with each and every character, flaws and all. All of them pull you in and make you want to get to know them better, figure out why they are the way they are and do the things they do. If I was rich, I’d buy hundreds of copies of the dvds and hand them out to friends and strangers, forcing them to check it out.

Seriously, there are so many people out there fawning over True Blood, CSI, House or Prison Break, but they don’t have a clue. MAD MEN is where it’s at and you guys should all check it out!

Outfit: this is my version of the perfect casual warm winter outfit for a day when I don’t want to fuss over what I’m going to wear. The sweater is thrifted and probably belonged to a dude at some point as it is quite big, but I love that. Gamine chic, right? And my favorite supercomfy pair of jeggings of course. I wanted to wear my brown ASOS boots again because I had envisioned them looking all cool with my tight jeans, and I wanted to do some kind of ankle layering (just invented that phrase, feel free to use it but credit me plz) so I cuffed my jeggings and pulled up my christmassy socks.
I wanted to keep it all sort of classic and timeless, so I grabbed my camel swing coat. It reminds me of Sherlock Holmes by the way. My boyfriend says it doesn’t make me look like Sherlock Holmes just because the thing is camelcolored and has some sort of checkered print. He has a point.

PS I’m thinking of getting an ombre dye job on my hair ends a la Rachel Bilson and Alexa Chung. I have been intending to make an appointment at the hairdresser’s, but I always postpone things like this. I just don’t like picking up the phone and tying myself down to get things like these done at a certain time, you know? I’m weird I guess.
I’m sure.

pt: Now every Sunday I force my mom to record it. Oh, how she loves my good friend annebeth. Pretty look, my fave item are the shoes, wowee zowee they're awesome! you should do the hair.. I've been thinking about it too, but I think I'm gonna wait 'till it's longer. I don't wanna be your total twin! Friends have mistaken you for me on our pics! But I do think about cutting it eh,, in eye-area :D

pt 1: hey, the whole series of mad men, that's a great suggestion for my christmas present :p you inspired me to check the first episode of Boardwalk Empire though (it plays Sunday at NED3, and I was at home, and I really liked it a lot. I like the actors so much, the jokes ("I changed my name", "Well.. what's in a name.." "*?!? stone dumb look*" "READ A FUCKING BOOK"), the time, and the storyline
