Pompom Minnie Mouse

Not all mouses are the same: Some like cheese, others are crazy for pompoms.

I obviously don't need to tell you what is my obsession…

Material mix: Fluffy little jacket meets shiny vinyl skirt.

Thinking about other things I could make prettier with pompoms, but my little jacket.
Topshop vinyl skirt, bow bangle, pink bangle
No Minnie Mouse look without a bow of course. This time on the arm instead of on the head.
Vivienne Westwood, Melissa, Jelly shoes, pink tights
Still crazy for those jelly shoes. I think they are among the best designs Vivienne Westwood made for Melissa.

Yes, I am crazy for pompoms and there is no end in sight! What polka dots are for Yayoi Kusama, pompoms are for me. Measles? Chickenpox? Forget about these and pompom the world with me!

I bought two big packs of pretty colourful pompoms a few weeks ago and now I can't stop thinking about where to apply them. Why not everywhere? Pompoms on my shoes, pompoms in my hair, on my furniture and on the walls… Beware, I don't know limits! As a little start, I customized this black and a little bit boring little jacket and turned it into something after my taste.

I think there must be a strong and wonderful brain connection between me and my favourite milliner Pearls & Swine: A few days after I finished my jacket, a parcel with this super cute headband arrived in my letterbox. A surprise to make my heart pompom!

Imagine a city with cute little pompoms in all rainbow colours everywhere. I remember seeing a documentary about the Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. He said that everybody should have the right to take a bucket of paint and colour the house he's living in as far as his arm can reach from the window. Isn't this a pretty vision of a city of colour and self expression? Instead of paint, I imagine pompoms on all the houses.

I am off for the moment, looking for other places to put my pompoms… I'm curious to hear what you think about this look meanwhile.

My Outfit: 
Little jacket: Primark customized, Top: H&M, Skirt: Topshop, Tights: Topshop,
Headband: Pearls & Swine, Shoes: Vivienne Westwood for Melissa,
Bangle: Bijou Brigitte

Thanks to Pearls & Swine for the wonderful headband.
