You know what's seriously super lovely? These floral, stripy overalls sent to me by Free People. They're a little pricey, but well worth it if you are happy to pay the price. I kept wanting to buy cute vintage overalls that I saw basically in every shop in Japan but stopped myself every time (well, except for once), because I knew that I had these amazing things waiting for me when I got home. I've got a big huge clothing crush on overalls, jean shorts and rompers right now, as well as anything with suspenders.
And I don't know if you've noticed, but I also happen to be a sucker for anything with a face on it. So my little fox bag is making an appearance once again in this outfit.

Because of my fairy floss hair, I thought I'd write a little bit about the science of fairy floss (which I also learnt, although this is the original name for it, it is only called this in Australia. Everywhere else you might know it as cotton candy or candy floss). In 1897, fairy floss was invented by a team consisting of a candy maker and dentist (and I'm totally starting a conspiracy theory that the dentist was only part of this so that he'd get more patients, after everyone ate masses of cotton candy and made their teeth bad, heheh). Basically, all it involves is sugar (sucrose), and a device which can both melt sugar and then spin it around.
First, the sugar is made into a liquid by exposing it to high temperatures. Then, using centrifugal force, it is spun around really fast and the sugar molecules are flung through tiny holes. When the sugar goes through the holes, it cools down so rapidly that it can't crystallise back to the normal sucrose form, undergoing a process called Vitrification instead and forming a glass-like substance, appearing as long, thin threads. The threads of sugar are spooled onto a stick, and you've got fairy floss!
I hope you're all mighty fine!
