Yesterday was World Book Day. My Little Miss decided she wanted to be Dorothy. Cue a re-watch of the film and a trawl of the internet for inspiration
Of which I found lots!
As much as I've always wanted to be Mombi, I simply can't resist Glinda's sparkling beauty and that dress! The colours, the colours, it's all too dreamy, I can't take it gaaaaaaah!
So I thought I'd share some other random stuff that's been inspiring me lately...
Inspiration has also come my way by way of this pastel punkette
Int she grand? I'm totally inspired for Spring now!
Finally, on a musical note, I have been pleasantly surprised by the new direction this girl has taken
|Pink and red together - swoon|
Traditionally, I'll admit I was not a fan, more of a dismissive overlooker. But, reading a bit about her charity work, other extra curricular activities and her general attitude towards sexism in music, empowering women and the importance of building self esteem in young girls, has made me see her in a different light. The latest album has echoes of Hole, Bikini Kill, The Breeders, and Lush among others, so the music's not bad either!
She has a bit of a potty mouth and her material is too adult for my 5 year old daughter at the moment but, given a choice between Kate and the bumping, grinding, copious flesh exposing, domestic violence acquiescing "pop princess" Rihanna, I know who I'd rather my daughter choose as a role model
Riot grrl for 21st century teens? The Courtney legacy Courtney didn't quite manage to leave?
