I have to confess, I have no idea what’s going on in these pictures. I mean, I know that James took these hilariously candid photos – angles, much? – and so much for that coveted full-body shot,James has obviously had enough after 2 years of diligent photography. We were clearly in Chinatown, but why were we there and when was this? The last few weeks all blur into one summer holiday style blur of no schedule, endless evenings and sunshine. I’ve recently completed slam-dunked myself in the relationships department as well and that’s involved a lot of gin, songwriting at 3 in the morning and feeling like a twat (without sounding arrogant, that’s pretty rare for me), so I’ve been all over the place.

ANYWAY, I wanted solely to show off my Artemis t-shirt (completely inspired by Winnie).  I am a massive Sailor Moon fan and have been contemplating a post showing off all my Sailor Moon stuff. The sleeves are long and it’s very high but I wear it defiantly anyway: ill-fitting, poorly-styled Artemis is better than no Artemis at all. This skirt is from a thrift shop in Portland last summer during my big America trip. I was wearing it on the plane ride where I met a man I ended up proposing to a few weeks later in New York (since immortalised in song). I’ve talked before about associating all my clothes with people I met or spent time with when wearing them – it’s nice that sometimes the clothes live on after the people. When threads endure…

    Yay for the t-shirt! When I received mine I saw that it was a bit inconsistent to the one on the website, I assume they just print it on whatever white tee they can get hold of. Still, it’s so cheap I’m happy with it and I definitely need to roll the sleeves up and tuck it into a skirt to give it a bit more shape! I really like that first pic of you, that skirt of yours is so vibrant!

    The tee is so cute and so is the skirt. I can also remember what I was wearing when I met certain people… it’s kinda nice to recall that moment each time I wear that item again.

    The pictures are great, Chinatown is great and the colors too (just not to repeat “great” 🙂 But they are 🙂 I love red with yellow, so the atmosphere in red and the yellow skirt, really perfect! I loved the story you told about the skirt 🙂 I normally associate clothes to some moments and then people, it can be, but the story is really wow 🙂 And you are right, clothes live longer than some other things 🙂 The T-shirt is also lovely! I am glad you are enjoying your evenings, after some trips and touring you deserve it!

    I love Sailor Moon too! I haven’t delved back into my obsession lately but I love everything about that shirt. It’s making me want to watch the movies or the episodes again.

  8. Is this Chinatown in London? It has got to be the cleanest Chinatown ever! Love the photos. x.

  9. Uniqlo is selling the most comfortable moon shirts btw. Dunno if the place in Kensington High carries them because I saw them in Paris, but I remembered your moon skirt automatically when I saw them.
