Layer it up and pop a scrunchie in!

Sex and the City – “I see women every single day, all over New York City wearing scrunchies.”, Yes, Yes we do!

I Am So Addicted!

So I was flicking through Aprils Company Magazine and BANG! just when you thought the 90’s trend had exploded… the Scrunchie is back!

I guess it is hardly suprising with all the dinsey prints comics and Saved By The Bell gorgeous faded Tees trending around. I just thought I would never see day when a scrunchie was “cool” again 🙂

So in my usual charity shop hunt I came arcoss a super cute red velet one  and its suprising how much a little thing for your hair can grow on you! I now love my scrunchie.I think this is going to be a massive summer trend! and it is probably one of the easiest to pull off and FUN

Petticoats…Le Belle et la Bete.

The result was a film that dared to be naive, asking its audience to revert to childhood, the better to accept its practical magic“. The Guardian

My childhood was filled of dreams of Belle, France and I guess the fairy tale… Petticoats were one of my many stolen clothes from my mums wardrobe. I dreamed of dresses just like Belles, drawing a land of happiness and colour. I still think I owe this film alot, that might sound cliche but this was the beginning of my love for clothes.

[Belle]
Little town it’s a quiet village.
Everyday like the one before.
Little town full of little people, waking up to say.
Bonjour!
Bonjour!
Bonjour!
Bonjour!
Bonjour!
There goes the baker with his tray like always.
The same old bread and rolls to sell.
Every morning just the same since the morning that we came,
To this poor provincial town.
[Baker]
Good Morning Belle!
[Belle]
G’morning Monsieur!
[Baker]
Where you off to?
[Belle]
The book shop…
I just finished the most wonderful story,
About a beanstalk and an ogre and an…
[Baker]
That’s nice. Marie! The baguettes! Hurry up!
[Group of Women]
Look there she goes that girl is strange no question.
Dazed and distracted, can’t you tell?

I think this ideology in France is still there Paris is soo classic, original and mysterious. This is why I think it is important always to remember what first made you inspired. Paris is somewhere which was always amaze me so much more than I ever expected.

The 1946’s Belle et le Bete, has some beautiful imagery tells a darker story. This is the Real Beauty and The Beast in my mind. The full version can be found on youtube with English subtitles. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DaG3zns3fqA  The DVD is already on my Christmas wish list 🙂
