Beige this way

So, what do we think of Gaga's new music vid? Watch it here. I'm not sure what to think. I love the tripped out intro, but the rest is a bit dull. I think she probably sees this video as a clean cut break from the last album to her new one, like incubation or something, and that's why it's so clean and dark. So I get the concept, but I can't wait for her to go all the way again, weirdwise (props for who gets the The Apartment reference!). She does look extremely fierce with an eye for a chin, though.


On to my neutral outfit of the day!




Can you tell I'm SO ready for spring? A bit schizofrenic with the nordic sweater in the middle between the floral dress and my flower headband, but that's just how I roll! Not my favorite look of mine (ha!) but I like it well enough. Sometimes it's nice to wear something neutral, feels really clean and fresh. Is it bad that my version of simplicity contains mixed prints and a hippie headwreath? I'm such a weirdo.

Everytime I want to wear sweaters with all my high waisted skirts and dresses, it bothers me that there aren't more cropped sweaters in my closet (or stores for that matter). I find it so unflattering to wear fuller, high waisted skirts with sweaters that go down to my hips, it just doesn't work, proportionwise (again, The Apartment!). I scrunched this one up to have it look a bit cropped, and I'm sufficiently satisfied with the result. Not perfect, but good enough!

Now, after all my referrals to The Apartment, I might as well do a MOVIE RECOMMENDATION OF THE DAY!
I actually tuned into this one because Joan mentioned it on Mad Men (I'm such a Mad devotee)! I loved the characters, its (sometimes subtle, sometimes very in-your-face) critic on societal values, the dialogues, the jokes and of course the story. Sometimes playful and lighthearted, sometimes gritty and very confrontational, but all around very much worth your time. It really touched me, without it going the melodramatic route. One of the most "realistic" older movies I've seen, which provides a very interesting mix with Jack Lemon's over the top jokester nature.

C.C. Baxter: The mirror... it's broken.
Fran Kubelik: Yes, I know. I like it that way. Makes me look the way I feel. 

Fran Kubelik: When you're in love with a married man, you shouldn't wear mascara.  

Fran Kubelik: I never catch colds.
C.C. Baxter: Really? I was reading some figures from the Sickness and Accident Claims Division. You know that the average New Yorker between the ages of twenty and fifty has two and a half colds a year?
Fran Kubelik: That makes me feel just terrible.
C.C. Baxter: Why?
Fran Kubelik: Well, to make the figures come out even, if I have no colds a year, some poor slob must have five colds a year.
C.C. Baxter: [sheepishly] Yeah... it's me. 

C.C. Baxter: Ya know, I used to live like Robinson Crusoe; I mean, shipwrecked among 8 million people. And then one day I saw a footprint in the sand, and there you were.  

Total recommendation! A bit like a grittier version of Breakfast at Tiffany's (I didn't really like that one by the way).

  10. I love the floral crown, you look like a pretty fairy :)

  11. I love when floral crowns are incorporated into an outfit! It always looks so pretty- and I especially like yours with the dark pink.. it matches your skirt! I can't wait to get to the craft store to buy some supplies so I can make myself one- I think it is such a pretty accessory.

    Bah- Gaga... I can't help but feel bored of her- is it safe to put this statement in writing? Some people are die-hard fans, and these words are incriminating :P Ooo 4 cats and 3 dogs?!! ur soooo luckkyyyyy!! And I'm glad to find out you got into Hogwarts- this way I'll know someone on my first day! :P

  14. I like the muted neutral color combination.

    Question... Do you just photoshop yourself into the background? Because it looks like it in some of your pictures.

  15. I love the look, it's like a little mixture of 50s and 70s flower childish thing.

  20. Lol, I first clicked on the link, watched the video and thought: 'hm I like the intro but the actual video is pretty ridiculous.' and then read your comment on it ^^
    I like your version of clean chic :D or better said clean color plette chic. This sweater is so cute!

  21. I agree with your Lady Gaga comments! My official opinion is that while I don't think she's using sex to sell records, I feel like a lot of the video was too much conventional pop star underwear dancing for me to take her message seriously.

    Great outfit though! I have similar boots so I am always happy to see what's been worn with them.

  22. Have not seen the Gaga video yet, I'm just very bored of her, dont know why, maybe it's because she's not thata amazing or a genius and I'm fed up of hearing about her art or her extreme outfits *yarn* see? I even bore myself hehe
    Will surely check out The Apartment, added to the must watch list.
    Love this outfit and also have a tendency to wear cropped jumpers with dresses and skirts, they do look fab :)
