Don’t you just love it when you are accidentally fashionable?

When I first saw all the glorious pics from Moschino’s new collection with Jeremy Scott, I couldn’t help but feel a little smug. I’ve been taking inspiration from fast food for years! Here I am at my sister and brother-in-law’s joint birthday party, back in 2009, where the theme was “come as your favourite food”. (A theme I totally recommend, people got really creative and it was hilarious.) Anyway, for me there was only one option- I had to represent all my favourite junk foods!

So I went to McDonald’s and requested a bunch of empty french fry cartons. (They questioned me throroughly before complying, I think they thought I was going to stage some kind of anti-establishment, down with McDonald’s art installation in Trafalgar Square or something. When I explained what it was for, they clearly thought that no one would make up something so ridiculous so it must be true.) I then stapled them together in a triangular/corset formation, along with some elastic for the back.

The next Two for Tuesday I asked for some empty Domino’s pizza boxes along with my dinner. Being one of their most loyal customers (I actually won a free garlic pizza bread for this once. Only thing I’ve ever won. I really shouldn’t be so proud of that…), they easily agreed and I strung them onto some twine that  I made into a skirt. I drank a few too many Diet Cokes, washed the cans and tied them on too (I’m all about embellishment).Throw in some Walker’s crisp packets to preserve my modesty and boom – a skirt.

Then it was accessory time. I simply slid a chip packet onto a headband (and you can’t tell in the pictures, but I also stuck some diamantes from Claire’s Accessories onto the top) and voila – tiara. I stuck the “Warning: Hot Pizza” flaps from my pizza boxes onto my shoes with sellotape and I bought some popping corn, popped it and strung it to make some necklaces and a bracelet (it’s the butter and salt etc. that makes it greasy, without that it was fine.) I also happened to have burger earrings and a ring (don’t ask) so I was ready! I even did a red and yellow striped mani, but as this was in the pre-blog/pre-iphone years for me, I don’t have any decent pics 😦 (Imagine! The horror!)

My burger earrings. The chip earrings were a more recent gift from my bf, otherwise I would definitely have included them too!

???????????????????????????????

So, I’m not saying that Jeremy Scott and Moschino were necessarily inspired by my fancy dress costume from 5 years ago…..but can you prove that they weren’t?!?!

:-p
