strawberry switchblade or idk why i like to document my outfits but i do and that's ok?!


Tess wished to abridge her visit as much as possible; but the young man was pressing, and she consented to accompany him. He conducted her about the lawns, and flower-beds, and conservatories; and thence to the fruit-garden and greenhouses, where he asked her if she liked strawberries.
"Yes," said Tess, "when they come."
"They are already here." D'Urberville began gathering specimens of the fruit for her, handing them back to her as he stooped; and, presently, selecting a specially fine product of the "British Queen" variety, he stood up and held it by the stem to her mouth.
"No--no!" she said quickly, putting her fingers between his hand and her lips. "I would rather take it in my own hand."
"Nonsense!" he insisted; and in a slight distress she parted her lips and took it in.
They had spent some time wandering desultorily thus, Tess eating in a half-pleased, half-reluctant state whatever d'Urberville offered her. When she could consume no more of the strawberries he filled her little basket with them; and then the two passed round to the rose trees, whence he gathered blossoms and gave her to put in her bosom. She obeyed like one in a dream, and when she could affix no more he himself tucked a bud or two into her hat, and heaped her basket with others in the prodigality of his bounty. At last, looking at his watch, he said, "Now, by the time you have had something to eat, it will be time for you to leave, if you want to catch the carrier to Shaston. Come here, and I'll see what grub I can find."

  1. Ohhh man I love the way you put outfits together. It always makes me think that we would go sit in a field together, near some trees for a bit of shade, with a bunch of homemade salad pots that I brought along (like, really good salad, not just leaves that people think of when you use the word salad) and old magazines and we'd do some flow chart quizzes to find out which pop star boy is right for us (I did one of these in a 70s magazine and got Bryan Ferry lol) and idk idk the way you dress always gives me this particular sort of fantasy image somehow. Also WOAH those books look super interesting!
