outfit | lust for leather

photos taken by khensani of glitter daiquiri 

lately, i’ve had this (ridiculous) obsession with leather. and believe me when i say it didn’t help when i went shopping the other day and ended up in cotton on, face to face with a pair of leather joggers. i stood and stared at them, as if i were in a cliched romcom. the world moved in slow motion and all i could do was look at these pants… and laugh. i thought they were absolutely ridiculous, so of course, i bought them. lol. even now, whenever i talk about them, i laugh, because they are so weird (and my family hates them) but they are, like, the single greatest thing i own at the moment.

i’ve always wanted to do an outfit post in a parking lot, and bless suburbia on a monday afternoon for allowing me to do this shoot (literally on top of woolworths, ha!). i asked via twitter who wanted to do a shoot with me, and lo and behold, the brainchild behind Glitter Daiquiri, khensani, volunteered. so we got together, did this and another secret shoot (teehee) then we proceeded to chill in my den, watching horrible movies (the delivery man sucks. i didn’t laugh, like, once. i also was not paying attention but i blame that on the movie, too, for not being good enough to captivate me and demand my attention. so don’t watch it) and happy endings, while drinking pretty pink teas from a glass teapot and eating waffles and bacon on the floor in between buying malva pudding for my parents. it really is nice to have friends.

also, if you missed it, i was featured as SABloggers/We Blog For Love’s Blogger of the Week last week! read all about it here 🙂
