Today it's 69 days until I'm going to Jamaica. I'm trying to think about this as often as possible to maintain the ability to cope with life right now. It's dark in the morning and it's getting dark early in the evenings. I was out dancing this weekend and atm my old body is kind of broken down. I'm hiding at home under warm blankets, reading books, drinking mulled wine and trying to keep away the darkness by lightning candles.
- Today is the day when people go out and consume without reflection. When people buy for the sake of buying, whether they need anything or not. Black Friday is the day when people fight for the “right to consume”. Today, every percent off is an offer they can not resist.Myself, I took a walk around Kungsholmen and thought about life. Ok, that sounded a bit pretentious, but I felt quite calm and the only thing I bought was a bottle of shampoo when passing by the local supermarket. Of course, I'm also deceived by the consumer society. But if I'm going to buy something to maintain my superficial and material happiness I want in any case be able to do it in peace and quiet. It's like when you enjoy a really delicious meal or a good wine, then I don't want to do it, standing in a long queue of people who most of all want to beat me down.However, trying to blend in to the Black Friday wearing all black! Moschino wool jacket, vintage fur hat, H&M skirt, Marc Jacobs shoes and bag. Belt from Karl Lagerfeld (vintage) and ring from Bedazzled Jewelry.Photos: Keving G Lobos
I'm deeply in love with the Marc Jacobs resort collection. Just love the 80's wibes and can easily see myself walking around in every single outfit pretending to be Cyndi Lauper. Love the kitsch wibes, the pattern and color mixing, the sort of “bad taste” combined with luxury materials. Growing up (well it was a while ago) MTV was like the coolest thing ever. Can't wait to see this collection in store (but not how it's gonna affect my finances, however)!
