Umm, how cute is my new phone case?!

It was Ā£15 from Skinny Dip London. I wanted all their cases actually but couldn’t resist this one! I love that it’s a cheeky rip-off of Moschino, but without being a copy or the real deal, which has been slightly overdone by now. Plus, I love that I can always rely on the high street to steal the good ideas from high fashion and then make them better by adding an awesome slogan!

(And selling them for way less too, obviously!)

šŸ˜€

Of course, the sad thing about getting my old phone stolen (other than the actual fact of it being stolen, and losing all my Lisbon photos, which I was veryĀ sad about indeed) is that, when I got my new phone, I upgraded, and none of my cool cases fit my new one!

The one it was wearing when it was heartlessly abducted was one my sister had had especially made for me, with an in-joke on it that always made me smile. šŸ˜¦

But here, for one last hurrah, before they get tossedĀ out (or, as is more likely, takeĀ up space in a dusty corner of my room forever, never to be used again but hoarded because I have emotional issues with throwing things out) are the rest of my previous cases:

I bought the Mark Francis one (Made in Chelsea, for those who don’t share my epic taste in TV!) for my bf, knowing full well he’d refuse to use it and I could steal it! It’s from Toxic Fox.

The “Understated is Overrated” one was a gift, and another of my life mottoes! It’s faux Kate Spade, bought in Singapore, I believe.

The penguin was my first phone case, a gift from my bf from Case Mate. It has flappy feet! And a haughty expression! The best combination, I’m sure you’ll agree…

And the sparkly one was another gift from Singapore, I always got loadsĀ of comments and compliments on it!

Goodbye my friends, it’s hard to die…

:-p

Have a great weekend everyone!

Love,

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 thatĀ  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 šŸ˜¦ (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!

ImageI would totally wear these!

ImageNaturally, I want the whole collection….

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

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
