when there is nothing left to burn you have to set yourself on fire

current inspiration.
long hair, bowie & all of the black perfection on exhibit at topshop.
preferably altogether.

i've decided to be velma from the scooby doo gang - i've got the thick black frames, and i'm still looking to find burnt orange over-the-knee socks, a burgundy mini and an oversized orange turtleneck.
but whatever, the glasses are a good start, no ?

what inspirational things!
i love the photos, both of them scream energy... especially the last one. oh to be a fly on the wall at that party!
the topshop clothes are goreous too. the jumper, the blazer and the chiffon-y loose top... love them all! and topshop ships to australia, SCORE!

i went as velma to a fancy dress party the other day, mostly because my best friend's mother saw me with my fringe and glasses and goes' wow, hannah looks just like velma'... so i sort of drummed up an outfit using my dad's knitted jumper, my brother's orange football shorts and my own skirt... cool, huh!?

I was actually kind of thinking of being Velma, too (cuz I know someone who's being Shaggy), but I probably won't actually dress up.
