The Dream.

21 Oct


OK, so there’s no hidden agenda behind the title of today’s post. You know how usually I’m so insightful and manage to slip in some quip or double meaning? A witty side note? In my dreams. Well, not today.

Anyway. Today we went to see this piece of public art not far from where we live in the North West of England, and it’s name is ‘The Dream’. I’d only ever seen it from the motorway before, and was almost positive it was just a giant cock pee-pee. I’ve heard this said before, so it ain’t just my dirty mind guys. Once we got close up though, I realised it was a giant head. A very surreal looking sculpture of a head.  And I was impressed.

I thought this outfit looked rockin’ when I saw it in the mirror this morning, but after seeing it on film I’m not so sure. I think I look a bit stumpy, and I blame the boots. Not my height, oh no no no. Definitely those boots. It also seems I’ve given a brief revival to the ‘underwear-as-outerwear’ look that might not be seen again. You live you learn though, eh? Tomorrow I am going to Birmingham to see my football (or soccer) team, Aston Villa. And on Sunday I am going to meet my boyfriend at Heathrow Airport after almost two months apart. I will only hit him over the head and call him an idiot for almost going to the wrong airport after an hour has passed. Yup, that’s how excited I am to see him! Is everyone glad it’s Friday? What are you doing this weekend?

Boots: Bronx, Jeans: Forever 21, Shirt: Old Navy, Lingerie worn over shirt: Topshop, Cardigan: Primark.

    one’s height is never to blame its always the shoes. That said I dont think you look stumpy at all.

    haha..that’s a funny interpretation of that head sculpture. That’s a really pretty lingerie, definitely meant to be worn outside! The leather bag is beautiful, I love it.

    No way! That exact same statue was in a park in New York earlier this year! I wonder if it’s the same one.
