flashing lights and apparently I am a man with pink jeans

Today was a very happy day for me, for reasons most of you won't know for a long while now. (Unless others spill the beans first, hahaha. You know who you are!) It involves white lightning and a phone call. That's all you'll know until later. I'm awful, aren't I?

Anyway, afterwards I spent quality time with my parents and Aunt. We went to see Iron Man and I went to Marshalls.

I also went to payless but long story short, I think everyone there is an incompetent twat and I should like to fling my shoe at them but the I'd be out of a shoe and I'm sure they have plenty.

We went to the local Nursery next. When I was a little girl, I was a total hippie. These remind me of those times.....I'm really happy how they turned out.

I'm by no means a photographer but I'm proud of the pictures! No photoshop at all, just nature at her best methinks. We get everything from nature, including fashion. I wish I could enlarge flowers and flatten them and wear them as a long dress...certainly I can imagine many outfits out of the flowers I took pictures of.

Oh wait, someone already made them out of my dreams before I knew I wanted them.

When I got home I got nostalgic for my hippie childhood so I went to my attic and found these.

I absolutely love the illustrations in these, they're fashion forward as well as whimsical. Ozma and the wicked Princess' dresses are so wonderfully airy, I can't help but be reminded of Lanvin and Oscar de la Renta.
Enlarge the collage and you'll see why I think Ozma'd like these dresses, too...

The second book's bunny had a menswear outfit that reminded me of Burberry for some reason, I have no idea why.

I have a whole pile of books like these. One of these days, when the sun is out and the grass is green I'll have to get to reading these through once more. Until then, I'll leave you with one of my favorite lines in Ozma.

I'll prob'ly get lots of rest tommorow, when I become an orn'ment," said Dorothy, sleepily. But she lay down upon her couch, nevertheless, and in spite of all her worries was soon in the land of dreams.
