While I was sleeping…

I had the best of intentions:

I took my laptop to bed with me, set my alarm clock for 3.30am and was all set to join my RA peeps to enjoy the DOS festivities.

The alarm clock rang, I rolled over, switched it off and went back to catching Zzzzz’s.

Sure, probably reading North & South fanfiction till past midnight didn’t help, neither did the realisation that I had to be up at 6am.

While I was catching up on my beauty sleep, Richard was painting the town… black?

The styling was perfection, check out the length of the cuffs!


The thing is Richard, when I go left, you go right.

When I go to London, you go to Berlin.

When I go to sleep, you go out to party.

When I live in NY, you are in London, when I live in Europe, you move to the States.

This just won’t do!

When I want to get excited about new projects, you go mute.

When I fall for Porter or Lucas, you plan your exit strategy and they get killed off.

When I fall for the nape curls, you lop them off.

When I am enthralled with you, you have no idea I exist!

I guess that’ll have to do!

Taking Fashion Tips from Guy of Gisborne

I came across the following image at Debbie Does Doodle and it immediately made me think that it’s focusing on the wrong character from the Robin Hood story 🙂

Here’s the styling, which really embodied Robin, but interprets it in a way that any woman would feel feminine and sexy.

Gone are the green tights and dodgy hat.

I especially like the arrow earrings and gold leaf bracelets.

I though about how to reinterpreted the style of our Sherwood sweetheart Guy of Gisborne, and perhaps it could serve as inspiration for a mild version of a Grizzly Gizzy Halloween costume, or a least a themed outfit that nods towards him.

I see plenty of leather, beautiful boots, an interesting studded trench and some green velvet, here present in the form of a clutch bag.

The thighs are on full display and the shoulders are bold.

What’s missing?

I doubt any modern woman could afford to be tied up quite as often as Guy seems to be!

Let’s leave the rope at home!

I’m especially excited about the black pearl Ciate nail varnish.

I’m actually going to get my hands on it today and I’m still not sure if I love it of find it really weird.

Because I’ve been eating very healthy, my nails are very long and strong, so I may end up looking like I was given a manicure by Morticia Addams.

I’ll keep you posted 🙂

Have a wonderful Gizzy Day, take some fashion tips from him and strut like you won’t fit in the door frame!
