I've got the church key moving in the night
Dress: tba//Sweater: H&M//Coat: New Look//Shoes: Topshop//Bag: Primark
I haven't blogged in five days, but it feels like a lot longer. I've been through all sorts of emotions this week, you know how you can feel really low, and then suddenly snap out of it? Thursday I was supposed to go for drinks with ex-colleagues but really couldn't face it. I don't think many people went anyway (flaky bunch) but still. Not knowing what I want to do is also hard. I'm getting stressed because I'm doing so many bits and pieces (freelance for my old work correcting and writing articles, one day at the Casa on reception, two days at Refugee Action and then continuously working on the cultural magazine Ventana Latina) and maybe I'm not doing any of them well enough. And I'm not really concentrating on getting a bloody job. I end up going round in circles.
Anyway. I hadn't worn this TBA dress in a while- it's probably one of my most expensive items of clothing- but I thought I could get away with wearing such a summery number in Winter (although it's still so darn mild out). We went to check out the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery. I generally find some of the top 3 prizes quite disappointing, but what do I know? I love portrait exhibitions.
