Space Age Children & Stardust

I think this is easily the coolest piece of clothing that I have ever owned. In my mind, kitsch clothes are the absolute best - which is why this skirt and my teapot dress are now my most treasured items of clothing. The print on the skirt is a 1956 illustration for biscuits, done in the space-age style (source of image - and check this link out because there is some great 1950s art to enjoy). Choies, where this skirt comes from, has got a whole bunch of wonderfully bizarre, kitsch clothes (LIKE THESE) which I am extremely appreciative of!

I absolutely love it when science merges with art. Spanish artist Sergio Albiac uses computer programs to generate his works, and his most recent project "Stardust" uses images from the Hubble space telescope to piece together portraits. For the portraits, he uses images that people from all over the world send to him. Naturally, as soon as I saw this - on IFLS, where else? - I jumped at the chance to have portraits of myself made. This is the result! You can still get your own ones done, and both help contribute to this art project and get your own space portraits - just follow the instructions on the website!

"The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff."

I hope you're all having a marvellous day!

  17. Occasionally, you could really feel the style of wedding robes has fallen right into a misunderstanding. A variety of dresses are created with also several frills in order that often the wedding robes drop its personal elegance. But from Marches’ style present, we are able to locate the revive of tranquil and delicate design and style ideas. Devoid of exceeding decorations, the wedding dresses can focus on pressure the glamour with the brides herself. But that does not imply the wedding dresses are produced without having any decorations. By way of example, this time , crystals, sequins and so forth to assist you turn into additional eye-catching.
