Versus Versace SS 15

Versus is the youthful diffusion of Versace; hailed as the rock-chic fashion line, creative and innovative, it was Gianni Versace’s gift to his muse and younger sister Donatella – by all means the first woman to merge the music world with the fashion world, just as he brother did before her.

So, naturally, upon seeing the latest Versus line has incorporated safety pins – not only an homage to punk subculture – but also a throwback to Gianni Versace’s clothes in the early ’90’s – I bought a couple of bags because, well, punk and couture is a perfect marriage of juxtaposition and contrast, and it’s insanely aesthetically pleasing. At least to me, anyway. 

  

DREAM POSSESSIONS PT.2

1. Papier Mâché gynaecological model 

I don’t know where my fascination with anatomy began really. my mother is a trained nurse and I have always had a morbid fascination (I remember she would take me to the Hunterian museum in London after work sometimes and I would marvel at all the preserved embryos and fetuses and dead mammals. it was great.) 

2. Twin Peaks Murder Mystery game



Is this REAL???!!!!!! I don’t even know but I want, need, require it. I’m obsessed with Twin Peaks (David Lynch’s work in general to be honest) and wouldn’t this be the most perfect entertainment for a gathering with friends??? too good.

3. Vintage mechnanical Fortune Teller



I found this on either Pinterest or etsy, I’m not sure quite how it works and it’s most likely a pile of shit but I am obsessed with antiques like this. Anything remotely psychic, clairvoyant, or mystic is of great interest to me – always has been – my ancestors were Romani gypsies from India so I definitely get it from dat gypsy blood. 

4. Salvador Dali Tarot Deck

I relentlessly talk about how Salvador Dali is my favourite artist of all time. Back in January, I tweeted about this beauty of a tarot deck, and I’ve since bought it, but I just had to share. It’s worth searching on Google or Tarot sites to see the whole deck too, because it’s absolutely gorgeous.

5. Jareth the Goblin King MacBook sticker 



Lol. Just lol. There are so many things right with this picture I can’t deal. I need this laptop sticker. 

6. Celestial map throw blanket 



Another thing I’ve been obsessed with recently: celestial/astrological maps, sacred geometry of the universe, and star charts (if you have me on Pinterest you’ll have noticed me pinning the shit out of anything even scarcely related to the aforementioned). The picture is blurry but it’s basically a star map showing various astrological constellations in illustrated form. Suhwwweeet.

7. Creepy Hand wall hooks



Another thing which doesn’t strictly belong on this ‘dream possessions’ list – as I actually already own quite a few. These are made from real human hand moulds and are great for holding jewellery, a coat, small accessories, anything really. They are great quality and one of my favourite household decor items I own.

8. The ACTUAL Cheiro’s ‘palmistry for all’ book



Anyone even remotely interested in palmistry will know about the classic Cheiro’s book published in the early 20th century. There are recently published copies readily available would how great would it be to own an actual first edition antique copy? I’m sure there’s one on Etsy… perhaps I’ll have to break into Ripley’s Believe It Or Not?

9. Georges Méliès ‘A Trip To The Moon’ sculpture 



Another great find on etsy. This thing is entirely hand sculpted and it was literally love at first sight. If you have never watched Georges Méliès silent films I strongly urge you to, the cinematography and set design is stunning.  

10. Bat lamp



Obviously I have a bit of a spooky vibe going on and a (genetic- thanks mum)  predisposition to all things creepy. This vampire bat lamp is so cool, but the fact it’s from a vampire-themed nightclub in Shanghai makes it even cooler. Plane tickets anyone?

Back to pink…

The first time I dyed my hair pink I was seventeen, in the spring of 2012. It was a spontaneous decision spurred by my (then) fascination of kawaii & Japanese culture, with a hint of influence growing up seeing Audrey Kitching all over the internet. It’s one of my favourite hair colours, and temporary hair change can do wonders for your mood. I’m wearing skeleton leggings, a vintage Wolfpack oversize t-shirt, a vintage faux fur coat, and a pink Vivienne Westwood heart bag. (The lipstick is Diva by MAC).

From Hell They Came…

Had my weave taken out today… Meh. It’s weird to have such short thin hair but that’s what I get for ruining it with bleach over the years, I guess.

On the upside I found my long-lost Misfits t-shirt which I haven’t worn since April last year; so that was good.

Please excuse the hair/roots/general awfulness of the photo.
