Totally Looking Back to the Future

Psynopsis Uniqlo V-Neck Sweater H&M Skirt Vintage Lacoste Racket

I haven't made any New Year resolutions, but got a feeling that 2011 will be more about DIY* and about revamping what's there already. Also, I want to take more photos of others. The problem is, often when I develop an idea or want to show an outfit I can't grab someone quick enough, so I have to make do with myself. Really, I'd need a broom cupboard full of models… (I would even feed them a spoon of yoghurt every day.)

And tennis… The only time I came close to a tennis court in the last few months was when I took this picture of Morgaine. I miss playing, but the temperatures need to go up few degrees. And tiiiime - I need time! Got a hunch on that level nothing will change this year… Same old, same old.

Thank you, Morgaine, for modelling.

*And yes, I will do a post about how I made the DIY leggings. It was sooo easy, you'll be delighted.

sweater:
uniqlo, skirt: h&m children, shoes: ???, racket: lacoste.

Morgaine is so beautiful! Surely she hasn't been playing in these hideously arctic conditions? Brave woman!
Can't wait to see the tutorial on your leggings, they rock! xxx

Ah to be immune to arctic temperatures! I have a feeling I'm looking down the barrel of same old too this year. I too await in anticipation of the DIY leggings!

Love the 50's sweater girl vibe. Morgaine is the perfect model

oh, how I would like to learn to play tennis. If for nothing than for pleated skirts or lacoste striped dresses. Your model is very lovely. You captured the moment!
I WISH you very happy and lovely new year!

Gorgeous photo! And tennis- I haven't played in ages. It's my wrist but also my laziness.

Hi darling.
that photo is so stunning, i love it. well done dear. and morgaine is so cute.
i have the same problem as you- with my prints.. when i come up with something new im the only "model" available. i wish i could play tennis. but i can't.. maybe something to try out this year.

btw. it's pretty cold here yes.. but now it's getting more humanly cold. -22 celsius is not ok..

Lovely photo and i love the idea of taking more photos of others! Your photography is amazing and i would die to have you photograph me!

Kellie W. said...

Ha, I think every blogger's secret wish is to have a dozen models available to them 24/7. That would be brilliant!

Maddy said...

At least you have willing models! I have so many great ideas, but no one to execute them with :( If DIY is what you want, I hope you have dozens of DIY projects in your future!

Imogen said...

Wow I love tennis so much. I wish I could play more too. It's always so much fun and I like to watch it too.

Li said...

i am so hearing you ... if i have choice, i would much prefer to shoot others than me ... but, after all, who is most available to ourselves --- haha, ourselves :-)

i like the feel of photo - very retro!

btw: great word with "recycle" - that was exactly what the shop is about (at least for now) - to find a new home for the no-longer-needed item, xx

Good lord, I bet she's cold!;-)
The skirt is so pretty - I am especially fond of the expression on her face.

Sabine, I hope 2011 had a wonderful start for you. :-) I am looking forward to another year of friendship with you and another year of your fantastic post. I have a feeling you are going to nock me out of my shoes with your new outfit ideas! Can not wait to see them all!
