You know me, any day's an excuse for dressing up and a miserable Monday is no exception!
Inspired by my new blog crush, Pao from Project Minima, I decided to join in & link up with the Style Imitating Art challenge and recreate my own version of this piece, "South Wind, Clear Sky" a wood block print by Katsushika Hokusai from 1830.
The lovely Melanie (currently missing in action) sent me this Cheongsan back in the Summer. The kimono behind me is one of many given to Jon by adoring Japanese fans back in his band days when he spent several months touring the country. The bling is, as usual, a mix of second-hand junk and Indian silver haggled for in markets throughout the Sub-Continent.
The River Island platforms were £1.50 from a car boot sale in August and the tights were a Xmas present, freshly opened today.
What am I holding? It's what makes me erupt out of bed like a volcano every morning! Another of Jon's souvenirs and possibly the kitschest alarm clock in the world. If you can speak Japanese I'd love to know what Winnie's yelling. He's been waking me for over 20 years and I still haven't a clue what he's on about.
I'm off to pour my first glass of wine in a fortnight, I hope it doesn't go straight to my head!
See you soon.
