Monsters & Cats from Outer Space

I can tell you what monsters and cats form outer space have in common:
They are both rainbow-coloured.

Accessoires and makeup in bright pink are a must for this look.

This friendly monster wants to be hugged and stroked all the time.

The clutch is great to hide your face in case you encounter any paparazzi,
evil ex-boyfriends or nasty neighbours.

The cats are playing hide and seek behind the braces of the high-waisted skirt.

This comfortable jelly sandals in lilac are the perfect shoes for hot summer days.

This look is a mad liaison between the 50s and the 90s. A little bit of retro, a lot of craziness. Galaxy cats are floating through a rainbow coloured sky, while the cute furry monster twinkles with its long eyelashes. Nineties neon disco meets pink vintage chic. Yes, today I let styles clash together and mix wildly, what doesn't seem to fit at first.

You've seen this high-waisted pinafore skirt before here, I styled it to a genuine retro look. I wondered if it would look good in a more quirky outfit as well and was surprised how well it goes together with the cosmic cat print. The tee is quite long and it doesn't look good on my curvy body if I wear it loose, but tucked into the high-waisted skirt the silhouette is accented to flatter.

The true star of the outfit is the clutch: I wrote about British fashion designer Joanna Pybus before here and this is her first piece I own. I love the cute monster and always catch myself stroking it. I was tempted to not show my face at all in this post, because it's just too much fun to hide my face behind my monster.

I'll definitely have to go back for more Joanna Pybus items and recommend you to keep an eye on her too. I am curious what she comes up with in the future. I guess it must be cute and colourful, maybe it will be furry too…

Do you like this crazy look?

  5. Absolutely wonderful :))) I love this furry creature, he is marvellous :))) You look gorgeous as always my dear, such a happy and bright outfit :))) I looked up those bags you featured that look like drawings but are real. And I found some on ebay from Japan for much cheaper, although I do not know if they would be as good as the proper ones, but I might try. I can have a knock-off until I can afford the real thing, haha. But, they aren't so bad really. I hope you have a gorgeous day my sweet Xxxx

    1. Thank you very much lovely Kizzy <3 Oh you had a look at the bags? If you happen to be in London, I think they sell JumpFromPaper bags at the Saatchi Gallery and you could have a look at them. Didn't see anything similar before, so I am surprised you found something. But well: Every good idea is remade from others instantly. I love my JumpFromPaper bag an will show it in an outfit post as soon as I can think of the perfect style to go with it. Have a wonderful day too doll xxx
