Today's post is going to be quite solemn since I'm typing it at night, home alone, while I melancholically listen to "Is This Happiness?" by Lana Del Rey in my dimly lit room. It all ties together, however, as my outfit today resembles that of a lonely 60's housewife à la Betty Draper who has far too much downtime on her hands, forcing her to fall into sad, existentially-tinted chains of thought. That is, after all, the entire point of this blog: too much time on my hands, hence the first half of the title "ennui." Now that school is over I find myself falling deeper and deeper into this state of half-being where I don't really ever have anything I need to do which allows the days to drone on endlessly. I try to fill my hours doing photo shoots or film work (I was an extra on a film this past Friday night which is a whole other story) but nothing is properly filling the void I feel. I feel genuine fear for my future, a very un-original thing for an 18 year old, I know. I love the fashion industry and working as a local model but it seems incredibly naïve to even entertain the thought that there are any careers within it that I could do successfully. Perhaps I need to work on developing confidence in my abilities.
For now, all I can do is publish this post so at least I know I can do that well. You may've noticed that this soul-wrenchingly lovely skirt resembles one I talked about wanting a couple of posts ago and if you did then I owe you a lemon or at least a gold star. I happen to be dating a man akin to Prince Charming (I've mentioned him in previous posts) and being l'homme parfait he is he surprised me by sending it to me as a gift. Merci beacoup, chéri, cette tenue est à cause de tu. Because this skirt is such a work of art I had to properly honor it by finding perfect pieces to compliment it which, thanks to Chris at The Urban Eccentric, is how I came about this stunning but delicate vintage chiffon shirt, yellow gloves, glittery bracelet, and a slip with a romantic lace lining. Together they work together to create an outfit perfect for ice cream with friends (how I spent my Sunday night,) brunch on the town, or for attending a tea party in the city gardens. Comment and let me know your favorite way to spend lazy Sundays~
