Sixth form – 52 weeks of colour, sienna

I knew that sienna colour looked familiar.

And I also know why I have almost none in my inventory.

My SCHOOL UNIFORM was 'sienna'.  But basically brown with white shirts and NO mini skirts and NO heels and NO makeup and hair tied back until... the sixth form (the UK will be with me on this).



Sixth form is as of age 16. At my (girls only) school, with the boys next door and barbed wire in between (yes really), things did improve a bit by then. As in we could, er, stretch the rules a little.


I am, of course, talking about the heels, not the other things we got up to. As if we would.

The best part, however, was getting outside the school gates and literally letting your hair down. And getting the makeup out (ever tried to put makeup on at a bus stop?). 

And jewellery. Because if you got caught wearing earrings IN school, you got detention.

Ah, memories.

Am I showing my age?

(Yes)

Credits? Zaara Isis shirt, Aoharu tailored jacket (think school blazer), Zagoskin Ella skirt.… Read the rest

although I wouldn’t know, sadly. I’ve watched ‘Get Him to the Greek’ again, and inspired by the outstanding Russell Brand, I’ve gone for this look.

the Last hours of Mary Kelly

Mary was exhausted. She couldn't remember a time that she had been this tired. She felt like she had been running forever without any time to think or breathe.  But she still needed to work.  It was 11pm and she had a good two hours still to get several more customers before she dropped from exhaustion.

It's been hard for Mary to get tricks the past couple of days.  Four of her friends have been murdered by some lunatic that has been roaming the streets since August.  Men have been keeping their distance from her.  It's as if she has developed some disease or is viewed upon as a bad omen.  She is sick of it all.  If she could just sit and rest. If only for a few minutes.  All she does is walk these streets day after day after day.

She wouldn't end up like her other friends, Annie, Catherine, Elizabeth, and Mary who didn't have the luxury of being alive.   She was going to be somebody.  Someday.  She would get out of this hellish life-get out of Whitechapel forever.… Read the rest
