Oh Mickey You're So Fine...


(image courtesy of Art Experts, Inc)

 I don't know how or why this happens but sometimes I spot an image and the image repeats itself in my daily life - not unlike an Andy Warhol canvas. Does this happen to you?  A walk down Melrose sparked Mickey sightings and then before I knew it the influence was apparent everywhere I looked...

Mickey Ballerina's by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac as seen on Tokyobanhbao
... more Melrose street art

My favorite jewelry designer (prospective suitors take note) Victoire de Castellane for Dior Joaillerie in her former uniform - Mickey Mouse ears! Would love to know what images you've been spotting... 


Before I sign out - here are a couple links to two blogs featuring my Blogher outfit!

 Sandra from Debutante Clothing has an amazing eye and blogs about her passion for vintage! Click here for her other site - it's like Pinterest only it's all vintage images!

Amanne's blog Urban Bedou Girl encompasses fashion, beauty and lifestyle with a Middle Eastern perspective. It's really unique and exotic!

This weekend will revolve around food as it often does - I'll be baking a striped birthday cake for my niece's second birthday and brunching with Darren the Chef! Future posts no doubt! What are your plans? Whatever they involve, I hope you have fun!

Who knew a simple mouse could be such a social influence on fashion, art and all that jazzes!

If my little niece is any judge, Mickey rules the world.


Lots of love from Sydney,
