Marianne Faitful

Lately I've been rather addicted to Looklet where you can create and style fashion looks. It's right up my alley! A few days ago they asked me make a look inspired by Marianne Faithful because they loved my looks And now it's featured on the front page! Now I have to say it's not the best look I created (afterwards it looks rather boring, but I do think it captures the essence that is Marianne Faithfull - knee high boots, boa, mini dress). Anyway I guess I just wanted to show off

I really enjoyed this assignment and feel I now practically everything about Marianne now. Her biography is now on my To-Be-Read list and I love her song "As Tears Go By" ♥ (listen here)

The inspiration collage I made

To me Marianne Faithfull is:
  • Big floppy hats
  • Knee height boots
  • Fur coats and shawls
  • Mini skirts & dresses
  • Featherd boa's
  • Huge sunglasses
  • Dashing, Bohemian, Sensual, Florid, Stylish
My First Look: (the one they choose)

Maybe the most that you can expect from a relationship that goes bad
is to come out of it with a few good songs. - Marianne Faithfull

Look 2: (which I prefer!)

Monday's New Look: Sweetheart

Spring Song by Robert Browning
The Year's at the spring
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in his heaven --
All's right with the world!

Inspired by Cath Kidston's style. Styled by me =)

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?

What do I answer to that? I want to go everywhere! Where do I NOT want to go would probably be a better question

That said at the moment though I especially would LOVE to go to Sweden.

Explore Stockholm

..see the Iron Ore mines in Kiruna

..go to an icehockey game in Globen Arena

..hike through hike the beautiful nature

..visit a Sami village

..sleep in the ice hotel

..see the mysterious Northern Lights

..and go dog sledding in lapland!

Oh if only..

Where would you go?

Love, Liesel
