I love this video, so intimate.

library of dust

“... these canisters hold the cremated remains of patients from an American psychiatric hospital. Oddly reminiscent of bullet casings, the canisters are literal gravesites. Reacting with their ash inhabitants, the canisters are now blooming with secondary minerals, articulating new metallic landscapes.”

Library of Dust by David Maisel. I'll definately be buying his book come payday on Friday.

Nina Ricci Spring 2008 RTW.
One of my favourite palettes.

in labyrinths of coral caves

(editing to add, the maker of these has an etsy shop where they sell little coral necklaces. It's empty at the moment however.)

Two of my favourite things meshed together!
Also, check out my friend Rachel O'Malley's knitted picnic at Streaking Scarlett. So twee!

high tide

Not to sound trite, but I really can't express how much I love Jane's most recent outfit at Sea Of Shoes.

i want...

Brogues, Office (because my current ones are a bit scruffy).
Dress, All Saints.
Boots, River Island (about £100 cheaper than the All Saints military I've been lusting over, week and a half to mull these over but I can't see myself deciding against them).
Padlock bracelet, All Saints (though I'm waiting to hear back via email about the nickel content of this since the store staff didn't seem too sure... more on that topic later).
Orion vest as per the below post, All Saints.
Mesh tshirt, American Apparel.

What I really want more than anything though is this Alexander Wang bag, boo.
