I’m not having a very productive day. The problem with PhDs is that often you submit work and then have to wait for comments, etc. before you can move on again. There is so much to do that in the meantime you could surely fill your time with something more productive but… well, you just don’t feel like it. I’m having one of those days.
Which is fitting considering I’m keeping with the casual theme from yesterday, and am, in fact, so lazy as to be wearing the same jeans and jandals (mostly due to “THE BLISTER” as we discussed previously). I’ve just thrown on a different top – this one from H & M – which BF (who, I feel silly calling him BF so from now on he’ll be called D) – right, which D said it looked like I was about to go on an African big game hunt. So it’s fitting I paired it with my “lantern earrings”.
So yes – I am ready for a Safari, circa 19th century Great Britain!
Today I wasn’t planning on celebrating the fabulous style of British explorers. No, I was going to comment on the fabulous style of a character on a British TV series. Vod from Fresh Meat. Haven’t seen Fresh Meat yet? You are missing out. It’s hilarious. It’s a bit of an updated, British 2012 version of The Breakfast Club. Six unlikely first years all move in together in a house; chaos and shenanigans ensue.
And after just finishing the second season, there is a very serious standout: Vod. She’s insane. But she is dynamic and her sense of style is absolutely fantastic. I don’t know who styles and dresses the character of Vod (IMDB gives the series costume credit to June Nevin and make-up design to Janet Horsfield)… but props to them! Vod always looks amazing.
The many facets of Vod’s personality are reflected in her dress. Also, she uses her appearance to her advantage, particularly in the episode involving the BP dinner (photo just above). I especially loved her outfit and makeup in the John Frobrisher episode but was unable to find a picture (think David Bowie). Below are some examples of her many distinct ensembles. Enjoy! Oh, and of course, watch Fresh Meat.
