The Cornershop by Lucy Sparrow | Kittenhood
The Cornershop
A surreal place in London, where artist Lucy Sparrow made everything inside a shop from felt! They're so detailed, it's amazing.

My outfit: skulls & colorblock skirt

T-shirt – old, thrifted | Skirt – c/o Front Row Shop | Sandals – Pull & Bear

I’m so happy to still be able to still tag outfits “summer” at this point! I’m not ready to let go of sandals and bare legs (I’m never ready). I’m also happy to be able to wear this skirt without tights, because there are already so many colors on it! Don’t get me wrong – I picked it and I love the colors – but colored tights would’ve probably been too much in my book. How about you, how would you wear this skirt?

Shop handmade: stellar finds

Shop handmade: stellar finds - Kittenhood

1. Bandanas by Little Lark. These can be worn as scarves, hung on the wall or who knows how, and the new moon print is lovely.

2. Space bracelets by Jersey Maids. These bracelets may not come from space, but they look damn well stacked together.

3. Moon print skirt by Simply No. More like “simply wow”! This skirt is insanely awesome.

4. Oxidized silver ring by Venus Velvet. A precious, delicate way to wear constellations on your fingers.

5. Constellation embroidery kit by Miniature Rhino. Stitch your own constellation to hang and decorate the room with.

6. Ursa major pillow by Love California. This bear pillow with glow in the dark Ursa major embroidery is an absolute blast.

Dress me in: Dear Creatures, FW 14

Dear Creatures Fall Winter 2014 - Kittenhood

If this is not your first time reading this blog, you already know I’m a huge fan of Dear Creatures. I would go as far as saying it’s my favorite clothing brand. It’s nice to see them evolving and changing, but it’s also nice to see that there’s a core of similarities that makes Dear Creatures items instantly recognizable. This season’s lookbook is moody like a fall day, and the model shines through the bare trees. There’s a nice selection of dresses and skirts in different shapes, fluffy sweaters, outerwear and jeans, which shows just how much variety the label now has to offer.

Weekend marvels: 26/2014

 Weekend marvels - Kittenhood

 

Watch: The To Do List – featuring an immediately recognizable cast (Aubrey Plaza! Rachel Bilson! Donald Glover!) and lots of 90s memorabilia for you nostalgics.

Make: The radish print napkins by Well Nesting are the cutest thing since radishes!

Wear: This crazy trench coat from Front Row Shop. It has sleeves, but it also goes as a cape. Wild, I know.

Eat: A super easy idea, but one that I’d like to try nonetheless: no bake thin mints (with oreo inside) by Top With Cinnamon.

Check: Miranda July’s new app, a collaboration with Miu Miu that is far from what you would expect. It’s more like a piece of art than a valid means of communication.

Shop handmade: back to school bags

Shop handmade: back to school bags - Kittenhood

1. White backpack by Kokosina. A huge, soft leather backpack that can be carried multiple ways due to the many handles and straps.

2. Canvas tote by Square Paisley Design. All the smart hedgehogs are going back to school, aren’t you?

3. Gold tote by The White Ribbon. The perfect everyday bag doesn’t have to be neutral at all. It can be gold!

4. Felt bag by Moose Design. I just love the combination of gray felt and light brown leather, it works like a charm.

5. Polka dot bag by Torna by Tarane. Simply put, this is a dream bag: big, leather, dotted, customizable with your own name.

6. Canvas backpack by Bagy Bags. Simple, versatile, packed with pockets to suit your every need.

Strapless Dress & Pearls - Kittenhood

My outfit: swan dress & oversized pearls

Nude Ruffled Tulle Dress - Kittenhood

Dress – Orsay via Flipster | Necklace – c/o Front Row Shop | Shoes – Bait Footwear

My sister called this the “swan dress” and she was right. The ruffled, layered tulle is something out of a Bjork outfit, and I find it super fun. I wore it to the-most-beautiful-wedding-ever last weekend, together with these oversized faux-pearls that are reminiscent of Chanel. While I’m not usually one for statement necklaces – or any necklaces for that matter – this one is pure awesome. And just what I needed for a strapless dress like this one!

Dress me in: Marimekko, SS14

Marimekko SS14 Lookbook - Kittenhood

Marimekko is a Finnish textile house specializing in original colorful prints. They’re not only renown for their clothing, but also for interior decorations and paper goods, which I’d say makes them a full lifestyle brand. It’s hard not to get sucked in by all the colorful goodness in their spring collection, despite the last rays of sunshine of this year slowly slipping away. Besides the pop-art dresses that I love, they’ve got some pretty amazing scarves too, which I imagine would look beautiful wrapped in turbans or over the shoulders on windy days.

Which print is your favorite?

Wes Anderson movie night with free printables | Kittenhood

I’ve seen almost all of Wes Anderson’s movies twice, I bought the book and some posters, and I’m always on the lookout for things related to his fantastic universes. This year for my birthday, I wanted to have my party Wes themed – and while that didn’t happen after all, I had already started working on some printables… So here they are. They’d be perfect for a Wes Anderson movie night!

Member Zissou Society popcorn bag

Download the template here and print it on an A3 piece of heavy paper. Cut, fold and glue together with a non-toxic glue. Allow to dry completely before placing the popcorn inside.

Note: Printing on regular, A4 paper will result in really tiny popcorn bags.
