The Swinging Sixties and Kyaraben!

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?
