PARDON MY BLACK & PARDON MY BERET

But yes, ahum, there's been a lot of that lately.

No spring vibes here no!
Welcome to the black-blog where you can get inspiration on how to wear basically the same tuff in similar ways!

No, but seriously, lately I've done a lot of proving ones point regarding black ensembles as the easiest to go for when doing long days and in a hurry -I'm really waiting for some time off... I just always seem to get involved in or take on new projects after one is finished. And most of them are fun or interesting to do. But I should learn to take it easy too!

Here are some of the things I've done and will do lately, packing my bag the night before and leaving home at 05.40 in the morning for work: Thursday - to the studio for the PS show after work and home in the evening. Friday - did a burlesque themed shoot right after work (in the harbour! It got a bit cold after a while :) And this weekend I'll spend 25hours in the harbour as usual (that's the way it goes when on weekend duty, every third week) and on Monday I'll go straight from work to the Casino where we have an evening show. And on Tuesday I need to go to the accountant to get last year's declarations signed and then on to a shoot and then a meeting.

But you know what? I seem to have Wednesday and Friday free (although I'm sure I will come up with something..) so I can actually go to the gym and finally tidy up at home! Droool.

(Oh, I almost forgot as somebody will ask anyway: skirt by Olivia Rouge, shoes Melissa, top from H&M just a few weeks ago so yes they probably still have them :), belt by Vivien of Holloway. The bag & beret are vintage.)

You've been busy girl! Wish I could look that good when I'm on the run. :-)

Love your blog! I need to try to stop by more often.

Maja said...

Beautiful (as allways) I really need a pair of red vintage-ish shoes (sigh)... and a spottet skirt...

Charlotte said...

Black is classic for a reason! (especially paired with red). You look fabulous as always.

Any outfit looks good on you. I love the touch of red and the black cat in your last pic.
You are an artist.
Enjoy your weekend.

I love your style and vintage!

I think it's fantastic your re-using stuff from your wardrobe in new ways.

Sometimes it feels in blog land that people are buying a new outfit every week.
Not all of us have that much money

Karin said...

Jättesnyggt, som alltid! Jag undrar, vad använder du för läppstift?

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Juliette : i know! sometimes it seems people buy so much! Well, I have periods when I buy a lot too, but go long periods without. Seems also vintage gals are rather good at consuming and thrifting, getting new items weekly...

karin : tack, jag använder Loreal's läppenna i Cherry! Sedan fyller jag på men något läppstift, på sistone oftast We Care / Icons i no23. Jag tror att det är ett finsk märke, hör till Sokos? Kankse. Använder också retrofuturist red från Lime Crime (se link i sidopanelen :)

Maja said...

oh a question about your amazing shoes - they are made of rubber right? can your feet breath in them, you know do they get that wellies/rubberboots kind of feeling - like you have been walking round plastic socks all day? they are so beautiful.

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Maja : well,not as bad as one would think! They are surprisingly comfy and has a fabric sole. Would not wear them without socks/stockings though. I haven't had them on for that long periods yet so I can't really say, but, I guess they could get a little bit icky after a whole day?

Maja said...

thank you and oh darn they look so nice but that just won't do! oh I'll just keep looking for those red shoes then...

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

But they are really great - I'll let you know when I've worn them some more :)

Maja said...

thank you.. hmm or else I have to find some 40s 50s pumps from etzy - that beautiful and dangerous place:)

jojography said...

Although this is probably not the most creative, springy or whatever outfit you wore, I really really like it. It's wearable and I just love how you wear your berets, they just suit you fantastically. Do you treat them in a special way before wearing, because they always lay perfectly on your head?
