pics i'm loving..





lady amalthea

back when i was a little kid i had the HUGEST girl crush on lady amalthea from 'the last unicorn' which was a crazy old kids film which is really overly dramatic and depressing. Which explains why i continued to love it well into my teens as they were two of my most prominent qualities.

Lady amalthea was a unicorn that had been transformed into a human to escape capture from the crazy old king dude that had trapped all of the other unicorns in the sea (as you do) and she was ridiculously pale with brilliant white hair and a star imprinted on her forehead where her horn should be:

recently i have found myself veering towards lilac (which has to this day been my most hated colour along with baby pink ~ bleugh) which whenever i wear along with my newly light blonde hair reminds me of the lovely amalthea.. unfortunately i can never be as white haired or white skinned as her so i decided to see if there were any people that have tried to copy her look.. and after a quick google search i discovered there were plenty... due to the anime quality of the film there were loads of cosplayers who have tried  but i think this girl did the best:


obviously thats a wig but how amazing would it be to have hair that colour.. reminds me of 'howls moving castle' when sophie's hair turns white at the end.. 

screen printed and embellished tights

i have wanted a black sequin skirt for ages now.. but only managed to buy a black sequin cardi, 2 black sequin dresses, sequin leggings, black sequin hot pants and black sequin belt.. hmm.. maybe i should do a black sequin day where i wear only black sequins as an entire outfit?
looks fab with my cage skirt too:

cool pics i'm liking today:








octopus obsessed

i don't know why but i've always been totally fascinated by octopus even though they gross me out beyond reason.. actually, i have a weird relationship with all sea creatures in that i want to be as close as humanly possible to them, even touch them, but at the same time am totally petrified of them.. anyway i have a few sea creature bits of jewellery but came across this today;

by Antonio Palladino. $4,195
earrings, bracelet and ring octopus all available through barneys.com if your loaded enough!


so after crying at the fact i'll never afford them i went a-huntin' for some other octopi decorated garb lo;

shirt - pretty

ring and necklace - very lovely..
 

but then..... i found these tights!!!!


which made me HAAAAAAAPPPPYYY!! so i've bought my octopus fix of the day and now can resume normal life until some other random thing to buy pops into my brain!
