I discovered a label I just have to share with you: Let me tell you about the exciting Australian brand Laurel & Hector, which is named after the grandparents of their designer mastermind Kee Kee. Laurel & Hector says about themselves that they make fashion for hot babes in bright lipstick looking for unconventional and high quality outfits. This sounds just like the perfect thing for you and me, right?
The latest Laurel & Hector collection called "Lip Service" comes with a big bash of Sixties chic, juicy fruits for Carmen Miranda fans and Clueless inspired looks in bright plaid. Everything is colourful and bold, especially yellow pieces rock their collection. If you need another reason for this fab fashion: See on the last picture how well their clothes fit to the best shoes in the universe, our beloved Melissa shoes.
I am absolutely in love with their banana items. No big surprise as you already know about my addiction for fruits in fashion. The pop art style banana headband is just the cutest accessory to complete the crazy fruity look. Totally cool, totally bananas!

|Showing you my claws today.|
|But don't worry: I love to purr as well.|
|Cats are such cute animals, don't you think?|
|And a brand new neon yellow Serena Kuhl bangle. I am fascinated by the intense colour.|
|Pink, blue and yellow with a hint of purple, a new hit combination?|
|Feeling good, so colourful, comic styled and quirky.|
|The probably brightest bangle I ever had. Neon yellow rules!|
|Cartoon style is my style! Love the irritating looks whenever I wear my comic bags.|
Every now and then, it's time for a cat themed outfit, don't you agree? When I saw this sweater from Dazzle & Jolt, I knew that the time has come again. It reminds me a little bit of my beloved series Sailor Moon, with the moon symbol and I love the colours.
Do you remember the cute guardian cats Luna and Artemis from the series? Since I have this sweater, I started to think about Sailor Moon more often again, what sweet memories! I am already tempted to get myself a pendant inspired by this anime. Is it childish to still love one's childhood heroes? I don't think so! Why should I ever loose the last piece of my inner child, if cute things make me happy?
The cat on the sweater is called Jarvis and he is kind of a third member of the Dazzle & Jolt team. I love that they made a jumper with him on it. Since I've seen pictures of the real Jarvis, I can confirm that he is absolutely recognizable and I am very happy to have him in my little Dazzle & Jolt collection. Next goal: Their unicorn T-shirt.
Not even the perfect cat jumper is enough cat stuff for me, so I added two feline rings as well and transformed myself with cute cat ears. Meow! I am off for today, might purr a little, have some milk and look out for mouses. See you soon and please tell me what you think about this look my lovelies.
Thanks to Dazzle & Jolt for the jumper, to Jump From Paper for the bag, to Serena Kuhl for the bangle and to Jazzafine for the headband. And last but not least thanks to my dear friend Tessa for the rings.

Anne-Sophie is a young designer of fashion costume and jewellery from Paris. She graduated at Central Saint Martins London with a MA in Performance Practice and Design. Her work is full of various cultural references. It's not about trends at all, but a mixture of fashion and performance art.
The toys of her childhood are Anne-Sophie's biggest inspiration and especially dolls are omnipresent in her work. She says that since she is too old to play with them, she discovered to wear them as a piece of art and wear them out. Anne-Sophie is a master of creating the most extraordinary looks from found, used and unwanted materials. Dresses don't need to be made out of fabric in Anne-Sophies creative world, but everything can be worn.
When I found Anne-Sophie's blog, I immediately felt a strong connection between her and me, even if what I wear is so much more commercial than her work. Is her work fashion or anti-fashion? I don't care, it's wonderful in it's colourful vibrancy and it makes me dream. Anne-Sophie Cochevelou, Sara is in Love with you and hopes to see in a doll dress on the streets of London one day!

While thinking about delicate jewellery, perspex is certainly not the material mentioned first. But Kanokkorn Lamlert, a Bangkok (Thailand) based artist and jewellery designer proves the opposite. Unlike most acrylic accessories, her work shows an extraordinary love for details and a graceful daintiness. All her jewellery is extremely refined and hand made.
The pieces of jewellery resemble opulent candelabrums and the diamond shaped pieces make the heart of a girl beat as much as real diamonds. There are versions of the earrings that even glow in the dark for perfect party looks. Because perspex is a very light material, despite their big size, you can wear them for dancing all night.
When Jane Russell sang the song "Diamond's are a girls best friend" she probably didn't think of perspex diamonds, but from now on we certainly will…
You can buy Kanokkorn's jwellery at Guruwan or email her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please follow this amazing designer on Facebook as well to keep an eye on her further work.

|Hey darling, this is my Valentine's Day look.|
|Hearts and flowers, the best choice for the day of love!|
|Who could ever resist those berries? They look almost better than real berries, I swear.|
|Flowers? Oh thank you, I already have loads of them. ;-)|
|Aren't they pretty and like from a baroque painting?|
|Love is in the air! The couple in the background is already holding hands, who takes mine?|
|Heart shaped glasses express the love I feel.|
|And the perfect Valentine's Day shoes can't be missed.|
|My love for Melissa is eternal for sure.|
Finally the time has come to reveal my look for Valentine's Day! This year I was excited about this day and my look like never before. I already planed my outfit weeks ago and couldn't barely wait to go out with it. The obvious choice for a Valentine's Day look would be to wear all red or pink, but this year I had something a little bit different in mind: An outfit like a baroque still life with flowers and berries.
Not as a symbol of the evanescence of my love, like what the painters expressed with their work during the period of Baroque, but as a lush sign of joy. Therefore no broken glasses, no skulls and no insects hidden behind the flowers, just petals in vibrant colours. Yes to lavishness, yes to love!
I was a little bit worried if the dress would fit my curvy body, but when it arrived I was surprised that it even flattered my shape in a way not many dresses do. The cute berry fascinator is from Jazzafine's "My Funny Valentine Collection". The berries are very tempting to take a bite, because they look almost better than real. I think this little hat will find it's way into my everyday accessories.
We went for dinner at our favourite Indian restaurant to celebrate. What a good start for the weekend! My darling loved my outfit very much, especially the flower dress. Now I'm curious to hear your opinion my lovelies!
How did you spend your Valentine's Day and what did you wear?

|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.|
|No Minnie Mouse look without a bow of course. This time on the arm instead of on the head.|
|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.
