she’s from the seventies but I’m a ninties bitch.
Geezuz I’ve been sitting here for weeks saying nah I don’t have enough time to right that mahusive blog post that I’m working on, and now suddenly I’m like ‘omg wut halp meh’ I NEED TO JUST GET THIS DONE before gah gah gah gah. I will work through the night if I have to but I am gunna get this done. Bad spelling, rambling and shiz.
I mentioned in a post from a while ago, that I’m really into that kinda warm, 60s/70s: heritage-style gloomyness, which Hollie totally encapsulates perfectly in these posts (here and here) and then aside from that there’s my whole groovy and gourdy technicolor-style vision of the late 80s-90s, (which probably isn’t so accurate, but sort of follows on from this vibbezz post I did from a while ago)- involving Courtney Love, Chloe Sevingy, Cher Horowtiz, Gwen Stefani, young Britney, M.I.A and all those strong female figures. When I think of the 90s I think of smiley-faced, poofy-haired, brightly coloured goofy fitness instructors and teenagers wearing puffy tracksuits, I also think of Jenna as a 13 year old girl (in 13 going on 30)- the super vibrant colours and pony tail hair and trashyness. I watched the movie when I was younger and I was like: meh okay, but watching the intro again I realise how dreamy and typical American high-school-ish the whole set up is: the yearbook photos being taken, the pink bedroom, the brace-face, the girl gang (the Six chicks) REMEMBER? It is so ‘troubled thirteen year old’ I LAV IT, I LAV IT.
I haven’t been doing like any outfits lately because firstly I have been busy and lazy, so mostly just walking around in pants or the same jeans or whatever- but secondly because I can’t take good enough photos myself and it’s awkward asking my family GAH I NEED A TRIPOD GEEZUZ. I have been waiting for this editorial in this Norwiegan magazine called D2 to come out, because the looks that I wore really suit this post, but they haven’t got back to me for ages, so imma just describe what I wore, and maybe if they send me some photos, I can update this post later:
…In one, I am wearing this vintage from that ‘Shoreditch high-street slash Brick Lane crossover area’ in a little hall with lots of stalls-it was £15 and reminds me of that etsy joke jacket Tavi has which brings ‘good vibes’ and stuff. It’s really puffed out and has colourful slogans and things allover! Anywayz, I wore it with my £1 Burger King top and cherry skirt+sunnayzzz. In the other picture I am wearing embroidered shorts by Julia Thompson, a silky kimono that I got for £1, a headband from a yard sale, ballet tights, glitter jelly sandels from a market, LOUISE GRAY x TOPSHOP tee, a love heart ring which I found on the floor somewhere and some bangles/cobra shop choker/stickers too yayayay.
This asos DIY thing is cool toooooo:
I’ve tried to make all my inspo fit into one category here, tried to group theme into themes like physchedelic daisy or something, but everything usually just kind of always ends up just being like kittens and pink stuff, so I figured, what’s the point? Blah. Lets just put it all together and see how it goesss whoooo (it kinda just disintegrated into like paradise and turquoise/baby pink vibez, oh well…) idek.
One of my favorite bloggers/people/awesome legend is Molly Soda. She is just generally like a babe on so many different levels and I did an interview of her here. She has a youtube channel where she posts random stuff and one of her videos (of her reading all her inbox messages on tumblr) is ten hours. How cray is that. She also does cool random videos and makes gifs…
Before I finish, oh-em-gee, the latest Romance was born (I can’t keep track of whether it was their S/S or A/W) show, called ‘Mushroom Magic’ absolutely blew me away. For the show they (being Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett) collaborated with Tanya Shclutz to create this amazing wonderland of a glowing-magical-garden-catwalk. The atmosphere of the whole show just looked so awe-gobsmackeringly-perfect: the disney/Alice in Wonderland theme, caviar-on the-face look, dyed hair, antennae and embellishment were just jdsfhjsfhjsdkj. The colors were sooooo on point: a mix of physchodelic and fluroscent pinks, greens, bananas and blues and the 60s shapes: puffy dresses, huge floppy seventies collars and then structured, sharp, tightnecked, colorful frocks were just so great. For hair, models were dressed in pastel bowl cuts wigs of all shades, wearing tiaras and pom poms and for makeup the models were practically dipped in glitter and coated in neon eye cream. The faces were powdered to a cherry or peachy complexion and decorated with sequins and glitter. Long batting fake eyelashes were added and nails sharpened.
Anyway, see yah round…….. <3<3<3<3<3<3
