A Bene Gesserit, I?

So I walked passed this long, black, hooded dress in H&M and LOVED it. 'Waaayy too Olsen twins' my head said. Next time I walked passed it I still loved it and thought: 'What do I care about the Olsen twins?! I'll just try it on.'

Slinking around in the dressing rooms S is delighted: "You’ve GOT TO get this!" (for anyone who is still wondering – S is female, my daughter actually. Only daughters would
be mean like that.) Anyway… "You’ve gotta get this!" she cries "You look like a Bene Gesserit witch and J" (that’s the man) "would really like this." Now, all you Dune fans know what I’m talking about, all others can get the low-down on my favourite book here. Proper witches take pictures in the dark, no? A day-light version is in the making…

I'm off to watch Avatar… for the first time. Yes, you may call my latest-comer, but I'm starting with the extended version – so professional.

These pictures are so interesting! Love it. I also love H&M! I wish there was one closer to me though.

Thank you, Poppies and Sunshine! In some countries they have online shops, but not here in the UK strangely.

Nothing against the Olsens, they are very cool... Just so much younger than I am :(

I love the Olsen look and I always think to myself "Can I pull off them Olsen look?" You do it fabulously. And how did I not know you had a daughter? You seem way too young.

I love the idea of a hooded dress! Dying to see it, Glinda Good Witch of the West-style! Absolutely we're watching the Open, whenever we're home, it's on!

Classic Copenhagen said...

I really like how sensitive you are to the privacy of your family. A lot. And good thing you got what you wanted, Olsen's or not. Big hug from Sandra

These are very different - hmm... I think witches just take photos in ill-lit places? hehe.

Kazuko said...

the pictures are amazing. how did you do them? need to try out myself! especially the second one - very artsy! and from what i can see - the dress looks fantastic on you.

SabinePsynopsis said...

@ Kazuko - Thank you! Playing with different flash times and curves, exposure etc. on Photoshop. Honestly, I think it was the wonderful website you pointed out in one of your last posts that inspired me.

rossovelvet said...

I was thinking vampire stuff because I'm in my vampire-movies-period, but it's really a compliment!
WOW, you look so good in your witchy outfit... and plus we know, the witches are always the most beautiful ones... Maleficent is the best, Sleeping beauty? Bleah.

;)

joy said...

I like the photo edit on the hands. Yea and I am so glad that you bought it. I haven't read Dune but have seen it.

styleeast said...

These photos are fantastic! I think you made the right choice getting the dress! x

OneCraftyFox said...

Personally, I like the look! Happy weekend, sweetie :)

Audrey Allure said...

Amazing photos, loving the look!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

LOL that's fabulous what you said about the Olsen twins! J sometimes says that I'm going for the Olsen triplet when I wear a particularly Olsen outfit. Which usual involves me wearing a scarf of some sort. But I've been wearing scarfs since they were on Full House so I don't think that's a fair comparison :)

Gorgeous images sweetie and I hope you have an absolutely fabulous weekend! xoxo
