The Swinging Sixties and Kyaraben!

19 July 2009

I almost disappear into the background with this dress. I originally wore this with those white perforated shoes from Topshop that I bought not so long ago. The dress itself was bought from a Miss Selfridge sale years and years ago but I altered it so that it fit my more petite height!
The paisley and the cut of the dress always reminds me of the wonderful sixties dresses. Here are a few pieces that really caught my eye on the V&A website. I adore that floral suit!

Paper Dress (Slyvia Ayton and Zhandra Rhodes, 1966) and Suit ( Biba- Barbara Hulanicki, 1984)

Mini Dress (Biba- Barbara Hulanicki, 1967) and Mini Dress and Jacket (Emanuel Ungaro, 1966)
This post has definitely reminded me that a trip down to the V&A is most definitely in order.

Also I made a Kyaraben! It's super cute and I used Becky's Hello Kitty lunchbox and matching chopsticks! Kawaii ne?
Seriously, who said you couldn't play with food?

  24. I really really like that dress. And it looks great paired with those coloured tights. Gah, I love those peices, I don't think I'd be able to wear the floral suit though but it is a nice idea.

  26. Thanks so much for the note. I really love the blue and the pattern of your dress.

    I found sort of a retro top on clearance that might be too much of a wild print..but I love the pattern so I'm going to wear it, but it rained to day. Maybe tomorrow.

  27. Thanks for the note. So many pretty things to see in your post today.

    I am so crush'n on ken'ichi matsuyama who was L in Deathnote. He was just so Donnie Darko like..perhaps. Even though, I'm told he's gay, doesn't matter to me, he's really a wonderful actor in any language.

    I also recently watch live action Love.Com and I really liked it too. He's not in it, but they had an adorable cast..where Risa is taller than the guy she likes.
