Moving on!

Well 'ello 'ello 'ello. Is anybody there? I just don't know. Alls I know is that I haven't been around for a long long time. I got disillusioned with blogging, didn't really think I was adding anything to the millions of other voices on the internet screaming to be heard. But I'm gonna try again.

And I thought, why not start a new blog - blank canvas mentality and all that. Back when I started this little blog it was all about me - or rather, all about what I liked, it was a filing cabinet of things that made me happy without much interaction between me and these things. I'd like to interact more with the content I put up. Otherwise, what's the point of putting up another picture that everyone else does. I get confused sometimes because I love some blogs that are mostly pictures (Miss Moss, you're amazing) but I realize that's not me. I felt a bit empty putting up another 'inspiring' photo.

So my new corner of the internet, Wild at Heart and Empty of Pocket, will attempt to be a bit more pro, a little less amateur but still me all the same. I still like pictures of food and daily life, but this time I want to share more of my own photos. I want to share the things I found out from people I talk to. I want less regurgitation. If this means less posting than the most prolific of bloggers, than that's fine by me. In the end, it still is a space for myself in the great wide abyss that is the web.

If anyone still subscribes to this dang thing, then it'd be nice if you'd add Wild at Heart and Empty of Pocket to your feed. Check out my very first post, a brief interview with two of the loveliest ladies I know who are making bespoke bags out of rope and twine out of their flat in South London.

I hope I can live up to my own expectations this time. For those who followed, I appreciated it. Everything is nonsense is still special to me, and I'm still gonna keep it (for if/when I ever feel like getting more personal again) but for now, I'm moving on.

Oh Pendleton...

...I'll always be stuck on you. You got the whole plaid thing going, which I'll never give up. Then you got the whole amazing native american wool blanket thing going on, which keeps me warm at night. And then you do this, the Portland Collection, which sends my heart into a whole new level of tizzy. Nope, ain't never gonna quit you.

Opening Ceremony. Rodarte. 'Nuff said.

Tapestry prints. Intarsia. Beige. Hawaiian Florals. Rodarte x Opening Ceremony. Mulleavy quirkiness. A 50s Western mashup, sorta, kinda. Basically I like it. A lot. At least enough to post it. Which is saying a lot around this tumbleweed blog, eh? See so much more here.

...Also, the lookbook reminds me of a popsicle melting in the sun, and on grey grey days, that's a nice thought.

hey baby, what's your sign?

Brilliant editorial in the December UK Vogue. I've taken quite a fancy to the Cancer shot. Why do I feel the urge to print and tack things on my wall lately?

But I'm not a crab, I'm a Taurus: Practical, reliable, patient, persistent, solid, determined, industrious, strong willed, sensuous, affectionate, warm-hearted, trustworthy. Or so the internet tells me. Definitely stubborn. Yes, definitely.

(Find the fashion interpretation of your star sign, i.e. the rest of the editorial here)

Almost reality

Enough of outfit ideals, this is my outfit reality. A rotation of two, maybe three, giant knit sweaters. Minus the nonchalant model of course.

A tear from one of the more appealing editorials I've seen in a while. Low-key and natural, much more my scene. Cinnamon Girl, Dossier Issue 6 FW 10.
