kate5kiwis: raindrops on roses


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

raindrops on roses

hi, i'm katie. i make stuff. i saw this skirt boogying on down at our jazz fest four weeks ago and fell in love. yarp, my dwd becks whipped out her phone and snapped it..
insane, no?
i had to have one. so when my auntie sent down a band of black knit already sewn into a dropped waist, i knew my stars had aligned. i grabbed one-metre-forty of black wedding tulle and a cast-off black half-slip from the op shop and left it hanging on my bedroom door.
this weekend, i found my muse:
thank the stars the fairyskirt cost me next-to-nothing, cos this year's birthday boots have totally broken the bank. but they are ridiculously lustable and i love them to the stars and back.
so i'm ready for the skool ball in two weeks' time. yarp, those be self-portraits, taken from the vantage point of my toilet seat.. and yarp, it's a bit of a stretch to label the outfit 'ball wear', but you should see what danger's wearing... x

Dude - the surrounding decor was an interesting pick for your pics.
I am wearing an avante garde retro-fitted suit of supreme style to the skool ball.
Cos that's how I roll and that's what's known as ball room.
