Today is all about crowns. All kinds. I just love them more than I love most people. Today's inspiration comes in the form of a few Tumblr posts, highlighting crowns. (I definitely originally typed crows, so I'm throwing in one of those for good measure)

And, from Snow White & the Huntsman, for our obligatory crow.

I'm silly. What else is new. Have a happy, super(bowl) Sunday!

Today's inspiration is Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll. 

Original book illustration.

This dress, from SewAngelicUK on Etsy

My incredibly loose interpretation of the Alice in Wonderland theme is this pair of tights. 

It's Saturday, I'm lazy, what do you want from me, etc.

purple haze & justice for all (parts)

         Hey there, gang! While I was out (for... five years) much has happened. The most recent, and certainly the coolest change I've made, is my hair. It's purple! Have some photos.

So... that's a change (for the better). My style as of late is very inspired by Rookie Magazine, Arabelle Sicardi, and my new fiancee (!!!), who wears a lot of plaid, collared shirts.

Another thing that's changed is I've become: queer as fuck, a rabid intersectional feminist, an online activist for trans (and specifically non-binary) people's rights, a hardcore warrior against anti-choicism (if that wasn't a word, it is now), and an employee at my local public library. So you can look forward to posts about those things, as well as my daily style, style crushes, and high and/or print fashion I'm digging at the time. I now identify as a demi-girl, also, but that's another concept for another post.

The first thing I want to address is my adoration for the lovely Lizz Winstead. Ms. Winstead, a founder of Lady Parts Justice, took time out of her day to respond to my query about the potentially cissexist connotations of her organization's name. 'Lady parts,' is referring to vaginas, something not exclusive to women/ladies, and an organ not all women have. However, she clarified that 'lady parts' is a reference to a quote. Check out her well-spoken explanation to a trans woman here

An excerpt summating it all:
"The name Lady Parts comes from a Michigan politician who was banned from the state senate floor for using vagina when talking about vaginal probes. We were talking and I said. 'I am afraid we will never win if men infantilize women and are uncomfortable saying vagina and insult us by using terms like lady parts.' We use it to show that saying things like 'lady Parts' is just one way women are treated like shit. Having said that, we do NOT look at gender as defined by your 'parts' We look at gender equality by how people identify so a trans man who feels alienated at the gyno gets us to stand up and fight as well as a trans woman who would like to get prostate exam with dignity. WHAT EVER PEOPLE NEED is what we stand for and fight for." -Lizz Winstead

So, thanks for reading, kids. And as I said: watch this space!

i take it in but don't look down.

Here, let me dust off my blog in hopes you can read this. Well, if any of you are left, that is. Hello, all! I'm back at the blogosphere with new passions, new hair, and a new name. I'll be making a brand new layout, with brand new content, any day now. Watch this space!

substance. and tilda swinton.

This is the promised substancial entry. It's essentially highlighting all the modeling Tilda Swinton as done as of late. God help me, I adore that woman.
All images from The Fashion Spot.

Sup Tilda in ES Magazine. She's wearing LANVIN. Okay let's discuss how my favorite ad campaign of the season pretty much is Lanvin. But Tilda is so masculine (or eh, "gender neutral" whatever) that the flow of the Lanvin makes a nice contrast.

I'm basically obsessed with the ENTIRE Pomellato jewelery campaign that Tilda did. Her hair is super bombass and I can't even handle how awesome it looks. I totally hotlinked these which makes me feel bad but it's the only time I ever have so whatever.

The purple with the ring just murders me, but not as much as her hair in the yellow shot. I can't stop rambling over this campaign. I need to hush.

DAZED AND CONFUSED DAZED AND CONFUSED DAZED AND CONFUSED. Ahem. Sorry about that. I'm just too busy STILL OBSESSING OVER TILDA'S HAIR. This isn't even her real hair and I'm still flipping.

The CURLS, ya'll. They're so vuluptuous and pretty and I just can't even.

I know the next perfume I'M buying. Well after Lola but whatever. Like This by Etat Libre d’Orange.

SHE'S COPYING HER FACE. I feel like maybe this is something Tilda would do anyway, like when she got drunk. It would be pretty freaking amazing if she did, actually.

Holy hell. The androgyny of this picture is like. Can't deal. So much of Tilda is just too much for me to handle. The Pringle of Scotland ad campaign will probably be hanging on my wall within the week.

Basically I could go on for days about how this lady is a total fashion icon, sexy mama, and unparalleled actress, but that would be boring. Pictures are always more fun.
