pom pom time

ben found this picture that someone posted on twitter so showed it to me as he thought i'd like it.. he thought right!! especially the top on the doll.. so i thought i'd make it.. so with some black wool, elastic, white gauze fabric and one of ben's old jumpers (shh don't tell him) i have made a similar top.. though the neck is a lot looser as it was a v neck sweater.. i also made two more pom poms to add to my shoes so i could be all sorts of co-ordinated!! (also note the matching orange  flower and hat.. thats no friggin accident mate)

..does it need 2 pom poms?? i can't decide.. after making 3 i was bored so took these photos but i may add another??

You're what the French call les incompetants

Christ almighty.. Does anyone else actually love Macaulay Culkin as much as i do!!!

just look into his big buggy blue eyes.. :-)
look at the stupid hair.. woot
and his big manic mouth with crazy rubber lips.. seriously he just looks like a nutter! 

...and he wore lots of make up and wicked clothes in Party Monster.. love him!!!!!


i went to see lykke li last year and she wore the most awesome black sequin outfit that i managed to get a photo of from her facebook page:
how brilliant is it.. a whole outfit of sequins with big billowy sleeves.. love!
i don't think this is the same top but its equally pretty.. my new mission is to find long sleeved oversized sequin top/dresses

and just for the sake of it here's some other pics of the lady.. when not in sequins she's rather more subdued classic but with a kooky twist.. i like her in a chloe sevigny way.. ie; she's quirky but not quite bonkers enough for my liking ;)

you must check her music out if you haven't already:

i will never tire of this outfit!!

Topshop may have tried (but hugely failed) at making a harlequin jumpsuit (i could have stomached the sequins but shorts too!! come on!!) but nothing will ever be as good as the vintage one that alison from goldrapp wore for her album cover 

i was actually quite into the circus look at the time and already had a bunch of harlequin clothing and a ruff when it came out so when ben saw this he text me and said 

"kirsty, you will die when you see goldfrapp's album photos!!" and then he probably mentioned something about a mac or an iphone or his work.. i dunno i switch off after ben mentions anything remotely fashion orientated as you can be sure thats his way of grabbing your attention so he can bore you to death for 20 minutes.... 

any way getting back to the original post - he wasn't wrong - harlequin - ruff - field - the cheeky bint also managed to pop a pirate's hat in there (of which i've tried numerous fancy dress shops to aquire as it turns out i have quite an unusually large head for a girl.. and the only ones i found had hair sewn in - which could be fun but might actually just look a little bizarre as the hair didn't match mine...? i dunno) crikey how long did that bracketed section go on for.. my english teacher would be turning in her grave..... well if she was dead she would.... anyhoos here are the pics to remind you guys of its beauty..

i think i may post a wanted add on the alchemy on etsy to see if someone can make me one as the materials shouldn't be that expensive.. xx
