Today's outfit seems like the perfect costume to go and see Maleficent the Angelina Jolie movie in. I've had this dress for years and brought it on one of my many trips to LA when I worked as a video director. With its huge sleeves its one part Stevie Nicks to two parts Isadora Duncan and I feel rather splendid in it I must say.
|Isadora I adore-you-Oh that's Adrian Mole|
|Gold Dust Woman|
|Sleeves this big just invite you to strike poses-I love them|
I seem to be on a bit of a 1930's arts and craft jag at the moment in no small part because I'm revisiting "The children's book" by As Byatt. Its so wonderful and I can't help love and loathe Olive the central figure.
Olive is a self obsessed children's author who immerses herself in art and culture in what was such a rich period for the arts just before the first world war. I don't know why I'm so drawn to this book as the central theme is do you strive for creativity at the expense of your children's happiness and I have enough working mothers guilt as it is but the descriptions in it are so delicious I always go back.
Here is just one of my favorite passages:
“She didn't like to be talked about. Equally, she didn't like not to be talked about, when the high-minded chatter rushed on as though she was not there. There was no pleasing her, in fact. She had the grace, even at eleven, to know there was no pleasing her. She thought a lot, analytically, about other people's feelings, and had only just begun to realize that this was not usual, and not reciprocated.”
― A.S. Byatt, The Children's Book
|Arts and crafts inspired chic|
|Luxuriating in rereading favorite books|
My bag is a little silk thing with an embroidered Buddha on.
|Hare Krishna Honey|
|Red Riding hood if she married the wolf|
I love me some hare Krishna vibes and am listening to Georges Harrison "My sweet Lord" as I write this. Its like chicken soup for the soul that track (or vegetable as it would be for me)
I have pinned some silk flowers in my hair and lined my eyes with plenty of kohl and I'm ready for my date with maleficent. I seem to always be drawn to misunderstood Woman-what can I tell you!
The sun is shining and I am feeling creatively recharged. Inspiration is everywhere and I am drinking it all in.
