I love music and fashion, especially rock ‘n’ roll. So I dress according to the music I like which is rock music, of course. I like to combine second-hand and new clothes together, to create a unique look that truly expresses myself. So sometimes, I like going to Camden, Brick Lane, Portobello Road Market, and the like, to look for vintage clothing. But it’s not only vintage clothes I am looking for, also jewellery, furniture, knick-knacks, for instance. But the main items I like to buy from the flea markets are vintage clothes and jewels since I can wear them together. I don’t really go that much up in other things to decorate my studio. They will just stay there to collect dust.
Everything else are from TopShop, except the leopard jumper is vintage which I bought it just for £5. It’s one of my favorite items that I wear a lot.
And today since morning, the weather was like spring or summer already with some sunshine. And that’s why I began to think about summer fashion. I always love summertime which means it’s soon time for me to visit vintage markets around London. But, I am still waiting for winter. I want to see snow. I saw snow a few weeks ago. But, it’s just for one day. I think. And that was it. That’s winter here in UK. And the spring is just right around the corner. It’s good, though. Then I can wear beautiful spring or summer clothes – both bohemian and rock chick look.
I love this bag from TopShop.
Just got home from a casting not long ago. While I was walking on the pavement on my way to the casting a sudden downpour of rain made me run desperately, looking for somewhere to hide myself from the rain. I couldn’t really find any. So I just kept walking quickly. As to make the matter worse, a car drove past me and it hit a puddle by the sidewalk, splashing the water onto me and my winter coat, which I just bought it very recently. Now I have to pay a visit to a dry cleaning shop, perhaps.
I didn’t bring my umbrella. I normally wear a jacket with a hoodie. So I don’t really need it. But today I wore my new, brown coat which doesn’t have a hoodie. Luckily, the coat is quite thick, so my clothes didn’t get wet. Maybe a little. It would be awkward and embarrassing walking into a casting room soaking wet. So my new coat saved me from that.
I love my new coat, compared to other coats and jackets I have. I think, it’s good value for money. I bought it for £75 from Topshop in the past few weeks. It’s not that cheap. But it’s not that expensive either. I just love its quality and design. I have bought many coats and jackets that cost almost the same like this one, but some of them the quality isn’t that good. And the design isn’t that nice either. That’s why I love my new coat.
I have to be careful next time when the weather is like this. I will wear my old jacket instead when it rains. But today, it was almost unavoidable since I had to attend a casting, so I just wanted to look presentable.
I will continue to work on my screenplay now. I did work on it all day today before I went to casting. I’m almost done with the Act 1 revision. I just want to complete Act 1 as soon as possible, so that I can move on to Act 2. There are some scenes and locations that I don’t really need in the script. And maybe some characters, too. So, I’m very excited to see how my Act 1 will turn out after some scenes, locations, and characters are being eliminated. I just wanted to make my life easier if I decided to make the film myself.
I love fashion. So once in a while, I do buy new fashion clothes. I like to keep the color tone of my clothes in neutral colors, such as beige, gray. I just think these color palettes suit my skin tone better than any other colors. For example, strong colors are not for me at all. Sometimes I try to wear some colorful and bright colors. But they just don’t look good on me for some reason. The same with makeup. So, not just outfits.
I like jeans, especially ripped jeans. I just like denim. It can be denim shirt, denim skirt, for instance. I think, I will still wear jeans – no matter how old I am, as long as I still can wear them. And I like to mix casual apparel with formal or smart clothing, to create a unique look that’s just so me.
I don’t really have a pair of smart boots. I do have some pairs. But they’re something cheap and unfashionable, which I don’t really like them or even use them that often – only when I work on sets. So I just bought a new pair of more fashionable boots a few days ago from my favourite fashion retail store. I don’t want to mention the name here, to promote their brand for free. They’re way more expensive than the boots I already have. But they are also more trendy, more presentable, and have better quality. So I think, it’s worth it.
This morning, I also threw lots of my old clothes into a big bin bag and gave it to a charity shop. I still have lots more to give it away. But it’s too heavy for me to carry all that at once since I don’t have a car. So I just take one bag at a time, until I get rid of all of them. My home feels as if it has more space now after most of the old clothes were gone. And my productivity increases. I don’t like storing things that I no longer use. For what? They’re just there to block my creativity and productivity. So once in a while, I like going through my stuff and discard things I don’t need for now. I can always buy them later when I, actually, do need them at some point. It helps a lot by throwing things I don’t really need away. Suddenly, I feel like I have more energy to accomplish lots of things.
So tonight, I will try to write the first 10 pages of my screenplay. I will just write and write without thinking too much about the grammar. Just brainstorming, until I have the first 10 pages. Then I will stop and read it tomorrow. One of the good things of writing a script based on a true story is that I know the story very well in my head that I don’t need to make an outline or anything. I can just write and write about what I know. I did make a simple outline. But I don’t even look at it or use it as a guide when I write. When I start writing I just write and write. I initially wanted to write a treatment first as well. But now, I will skip it anyway. I don’t need that.
Tomorrow I will throw away (I mean give to the charity shop) some more clothes and shoes, until nothing left but new apparel. Start fresh. New Year. New me. New job. New opportunity.
