Automatically assuming the role of a nerd in a classic nerd vs. girl next door relationship, I stole glances at Suki through the mirror reflection for the whole evening. At times I let my hair curtain my eyes which meant I could count her eyelashes without giving off creepy vibes. Creepy vibes: Yes, that should be the title of this post. It was a casual evening out with the Burberry team, who had a couple of tickets to the Temples gig at the Empire and had rounded up a couple gals, myself and Suki Waterhouse included (wat.) Wholesome and unassuming, she turned out to be, and quick to laugh. She drew her eyes dark but kept her lips bare, her nails painted in a sort of black that seemed steely grey at times. Oozing with rockstar confidence yet surprisingly shy at times – a bit like a boy, actually. She smelt of the Burberry Brit Rhythm perfume when she kissed hello (yes I sniffed her), a bit of lavender but weighed down by a woody, musky tang – it suited her so well. The next bit I’m sure you all guessed, I stole a few spritzs on my own wrists before we headed out the door, like a true nerd that I am. So yes, this may or may not be an ode to a new girl crush. My husband approves, as long as he can watch.

    I thought it was Jennifer Lawrence, an amped up Jennifer. Only reading your text I realized she’s Suki Waterhouse. Kind of makes me wonder the reason why Bradley Cooper fell for Suki because she reminds him of JL…..(JL was not into him therefore he found a look-alike).

  37. Yeah if this was Jennifer Lawrence I’d have ended the evening in SOME kind of drama, if not a restraining order. ;)

  38. Wonderful such a beautiful project. Thank you for sharing! Love your new hairstyle! So beautiful!

  39. […] Girl next door. […]

  40. Neruda’s poetry is beautiful in the imagery that
    it portrays. Sexology was interested in the definition and
    ordering of sexual pathologies, and remained unreflective on dominant
    sexualities. You can receive the next one directly into your email by clicking “SUBSCRIBE” at the top of the page.
