I have to admit that even through this stressful exam period I can’t help but take some time out and make some collages. For my eighteenth century french art exam I wore the following…Background Image: Antoine Watteau, Embarkation for the Isle of Cythera, 1717
Square print dress by Hooch, Blue Shrug from Topshop, Vintage Belt and a blue satin headband from Miss Selfridge. I have to admit I am glad to see the back of that century, it certainly wasn’t the most exciting of modules I have taken this year.
I’ve also discovered that I have misplaced my watch somewhere and have been annoying my housemates all day by constantly muttering to myself about it and tearing my room apart. I guess it had sentimental value as I’ve had it since I was 17 but then again I was planning to replace it this Summer anyway because it was beginning to fall apart. Plus, I know that these things have a way of coming back to us when we are least expecting it. It’s funny how you don’t miss something until it’s gone! This leads me onto Swatch watches. They’re so expensive for a bit of plastic but there is something very nostalgic about them. The cheapest ones are about £35 while other designs can reach £60. I had a look but was only drawn to the kid’s watches, particularly the one with the smiling face!
