Insainity is a sane response to an insane world



Source: topshop.com

I'm hopelessly charmed by quirky, unusual pieces like these. I adore the galaxy vest - but the price... not so adorable. It's such an epic design it's hard not to be hypnotised! I think my universe now in fact revolves around getting this vest, tehe.
Ohhh how it pains me to say this, but the shorts... have SOLD OUT! *gasp*
The second I saw them I thought of the Marina & the Diamonds gig I'm going to in a few months - they had the whole "Hollywood infected your brain" vibe - which was spot on because the other day I saw a photo of Marina herself wearing these shorts! I'm not in any way starstruck, but honestly, it's like we share a brain ;)

I've also wanted a Polaroid camera since like forever (ok, since Christmas), but last night I discovered this amazing application called the 'Poladroid Project' which can turn photos on your computer into the format of a polaroid. Here's a few of my faves that I Poladroid-ed...




There's something I love about polaroids... maybe it's their instancy - because a photo really is capturing a moment, and even when the image in your mind starts to fade, you still have the photos to remind you. And there's so much more to it than just an image, there's always a story behind it, because a photo can document emotions as well as memories; what it means to be alive, real and infinite.
Even forced and staged photography can say a lot about a person - it's a statement to the world that they exist, indivisible proof that long after they're gone they can stay alive.
Looking through the lens, there's so much potential when building an image. It's the same world, that we live in, but we all see it differently, we can create the best out of the worst and use a photograph as evidence of what real beauty means. Because life is, and forever should be; beautiful, chaotic, spontaneous and impossibly strange! ...Yeah, if you haven't guessed by now, I love photography... and not to be too forward, but I think photography kinda loves me too ;) tehehe.

TTFN you beautiful people!

(p.s. if any of you read this entire post I shall love you forever because it's ridiculously long, and you're a total hero for getting through it! ;)

  5. I agree with you when it comes to polaroids, it's the spontaneity that I love (: Is the vest from topshop as well? it's cool, but i'm guessing it's not worth the price tag... so annoying when you fall in love with stupidly overpriced things!
    (ps, i don't know why i dislike posting my poetry, i feel that it's a bit... pretentious, maybe? i think i'll only post the stuff that isn't personal from now on)

  15. Hehe, it was just fancy editing :p
    I wouldn't have a clue how to do it an other way!

    Oh my, Neverland + Peter Pan! I used to be totally obsessed by Peter. He was my first crush to be honest (the mind of a 5 year old doesn't seem to get that he's not a real person!). Man, and I also wished I could be Tinkerbell, cause she was always with Peter and she could fly :)

    Bye,
    Ruth

    PS: I actually own a polaroid camera, but I don't find photopaper for it!

  25. That's a great vest. I'm fascinated by outerspace prints. I think Acne makes something similar, but I bet they're more costly than the Topshop ones.

    Love Polaroids. The film and cost of print is the only problem. I will definitely check out the Polaroid Project.

    By the way, I would love to own trousers like in the sisterhood movie too. If you come across any, do let me know ;)

    Have a fab weekend!
