Kitsch Bitsch mini-edit

less than a week into the weirdo project that I've affectionately named "Kitsch month", I've managed to delve deeper into the universe of magical pastel rainbow unicorns and basically ended up shopping for stuff like my little pony and blythe dolls for about 4 hours. From this I came up with the idea of using blythe dolls for my next edit, and I gotta say, they look pretty good in haute couture. Keep your eyes peeled for more weird doll edits cause I think they're my favourite thing now.

My song of the day is Displaced by Azure Ray, enjoy :)

Autopsied care bears @ KITSCH MONTH

Another month in France is another month spent desperately trying to escape the intensive heat and keep my body temperature under 500 degrees. However, it's also another month spent on my laptop on a fairly regular basis; and you know what that means- BLOGGIN TIIIMEEE

I've recently discovered the tacky-rainbow-fun-ness that is the kitsch artwork, and now it's my undebated favourite thing in the universe EVER. So behold, the rest of July will now be dubbed KITSCH MONTH.

Prepare for a good 3 weeks of (hopefully) fairly regular blog posts featuring cool kitsch artists, photos, fashion and people.

Up first: Autopsied care bears- complete with vital organs and skulls intact.

Ever wondered what's inside your favourite care bear/other miscellaneous cuddly toy? Do they really have a huge heart filled with love or is it just your average lump of bloody muscle with some lungs and a rib cage? Jason Freeny has figured it all out for you, and he's even left one half of the characters intact for mega-kitsch value. GIVE ME ONE OF THESE BAD BOYS NOW.

 See the full collection and shop Jason's teddy-natomy here!

My song of the week this week is Lean On by Major Lazer/DJ Snake/Mø
Don't sigh, I love Mø and this song is of great sentimental value to me

D&G in Development

It's probably become fairly clear over the last few years that I'm a massive print-whore. I love big crazy colours on everything and of course Dolce & Gabbana is one of the best brands for this. Also, development models are awesome-looking and totally jealousy-inducing for me.

So here are a few looks you would definitely see me rocking if I had a slightly better wardrobe/infinite ££££ and looked like THIS:

Annie @ IMG Development in black Dolce & Gabbana dress and long sleeved tshirt from Proenza Schouler
Sofia Rivolta @ IMG Development in Dolce & Gabbana maxi skirt, Filles A Papa tshirt and Rick Owens jacket 
Nana Strand @ IMG Development in Dolce & Gabbana skirt and McQ sweatshirt
Until the day that I magically become a super mega rich supermodel though, I'm going to sit here and cry into my empty bank account and alexander mcqueen jumper with newly acquired paint stains (this happens a lot, it's been a long day). Why life?

My song of the week this week is Go by Grimes, enjoy guyss :)

Weekly Inspirations #5

I'm in bed with a hot water bottle right now and it's foggy outside and my life feels like a pale girl tumblr. Speaking of pale girl tumblr, here's my new URL, and here are my weekly inspirations for the week beginning Monday (I've totally lost track of the date).

The Spirit of the Rose at Alexander McQueen AW15

So having the flu meant that I never really left the house over fashion week, but I did get a good look at some of the shows (Simone Rocha, House of Holland and Gareth Pugh). Unfortunately my longterm fave Alexander McQueen managed to slip through my kleenex-clutching fingers, but thanks to the lords of the internet, I got to see it a short while later, and boy was it magnificent.

There was a definite Victorian/Elizabeth I type-thing going on here, what with all the backcombed victorian-spinster-hair a la Miss Havisham. The whole dark, romantic, gothic mood was contrasted with sheer maxi-dresses and cutouts which meshed quite nicely. I've always loved the witchy way of dressing and oh god those maxi dresses. Just. Look.

Sarah Burton, you are God.

My song of the week this week is 27 Club by Chloe Black, enjoy :)

The Pre-Spring 2015 edit

Yes, that is a thing now and no, I probably won't be posting a Spring edit considering it's now (approximately) 10 days until the turn of the season and I'm in bed with some kind of bug and about 12 different 'natural' cold remedies in my system; Hence I have taken to photoshop. 

 My plan for this half term was to be in Paris, with my friends, and fashion week, and lots and lots of Sobranie cigarettes; however it hasn't quite worked out. I'm ill, broke, and I think I've left it too late to book plane tickets. Also I have nothing new to wear apart from a few fur coats, an alexander wang cutout dress which now has chocolate on it (I fell into a chocolate fountain- don't ask) and some vintage Jamie Hewlett tshirts (courtesy of my once-fashionable mother).
 So until I get my life sorted, my half term is going to entail lots and lots (and lots) of blogging.
 I'm done moaning, here's my Pre-Spring Edit:
And all of the pretty things in it, all available at

My song of the week is Break The Rules (Odesza Remix) by Charli XCX, enjoy :)
