not getting married, i just like veils

i'm working on this dress for a sa fashion week competition and we're supposed to be using old clothes to make something new. one of the things I'm using is an old wedding veil i found at greensleeves. my overlocker is making things hard for me, so i'm taking a break and playing with the veil


wish it would be summer already, proper summer
+ my jeans have become too big for me, losing weight is never a bad thing

Him: Jade
Her: Alexander
Him: Do you remember that day you fell outta my window?
Her: I sure do, you came jumping out after me.
Him: Well, you fell on the concrete, nearly broke your ass, you were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you out to the hospital, you remember that?
Her: Yes I do.
Him: Well there's something I never told you about that night.
Her: What didn't you tell me?
Him: While you were sitting in the backseat smoking a cigarette you thought was gonna be your last, I was falling deep, deeply in love with you, and I never told you til just now.
