Fashion Inspiration: Enid in Ghost World

The 2001 film Ghost World by Terry Zwigoff is my favorite movie. It’s like me living in dreamland and she’s doing everything I was doing as a kid but up a notch. Not to talk about childhood but style.
In this coming of age movie, Thora Birch played Enid, a girl who thinks and act different than your average barbie doll girl, more tomboyish and has a very special sense of style that I admired. Her style is very diverse, she could look like a punk in one scene and a sweet little cat lady in another.
Some of the looks are inspirational for curvy girls who dare to try different styles.

Luella paid tribute to the movie with a collection in  SS08 before it ceased it’s business.

Mary Katrantzou x Harbour City

As announced on Fb, Mary Katrantzou has teamed up with one of the biggest shopping malls in Hong Kong – Harbour City, to create this limited edition umbrella with the aim of inviting donations for “The Community Chest of Hong Kong”. It’s always good to get yourself some pretty gifts in the name of charity. The umbrella was not as amazing as her dresses but it’s oriental detail probably would be more attractive to the big spenders from mainland China tourists in Hong Kong.

Mary Katrantzou x Topshop SS12
She has also collaborate with Topshop this year which brought a more fun loving attitude out to the collection.

 

Mary Katrantzou RTW
Mary Katrantzou’s design is modern, creative and elegant. Her signature is laser print of unusual objects projects on fabric, the dress that made her famous was from her 2009 perfume collection. Size range varies, some style runs XS, S, M and L. Size Large equals to size UK14, which makes me wonder, the designer herself should be around size 14-16, does it mean she’s against wearing her own design?

 

Over the years, you can see that the design gets more and more creative and complex, here are some of the pieces from the AW12 collection.

 

 

 

 

America Flag

I am back, says American Flag. (and no, it’s not because of 4th July)
How to pull this one off? 
Preferably a washed out one to make it less obvious, to pair with stone-washed denim and do it before the summer ends.
This must be chosen carefully otherwise becomes tacky.

And how about other flags? Probably just the flag of UK and only on accessories.
