Powdery Pastures

Powdery Pastures

>> My brain has officially decomposed into a mush after a week of Bacchanalian merriment that hasn't ended yet as I'm about to be whisked away to The Hand & Flowers in Marlow where duck fat chips and a copper bathtub awaits.  The brain decomposing process has been helped along by repeat plays of my favourite segment in Fantasia (when December comes around, outcomes the Disney collection…) – The Pastoral Symphony and in particular, when centaurs and their pretty centaurides meet in a scene of gratuitous vanity and sexist fantasy.  I am totally entitiled to think HOW GREAT it would be to lounge around with cherubs plaiting my hair whilst I file my nails with a reed and apply some lippie with a berry.  The reality of objects that I've recently come across through kind gifts and lucky sample sale finds are also not helping me snap out of this hazy pastoral vision…

I'm writing this off as a December/birthday/Christmas combined indulgence.  Come January, I'll be looking at this and puking on to my tax return forms.     














(From top to bottom: Powdery floral bouquet from Scarlet and Violet, Nike x Liberty Douglas Stripe Blazer, Christopher Kane S/S 12 satin platform shoe, Prada crystal and resin rose bracelet hanging on my still-alive orchid plant, Samatha Thavasa x Libery/Hello Kitty pencil case – a gift from Mai and some Japanese patterend masking tapes, detail of Christopher Kane S/S 10 embroidered dress)

    How do you manage to keep your orchid plants alive? As soon as I bought mine the flowers all dropped off one by one. Now I keep the lonely stem in the window sill, hoping life will return..

    Love this post. And love fantasia. I should watch it again at some point, it seems like a Christmassy thing to do.

    That used to happen to me!! I’ve discovered with this plant that you’re only supposed to water them once a week… i used to water mine every couple of days….

    This is one of the best parts of Fantasia! You have now reawakened 1. My love for the movie, 2. My love for pretty pastel things and centaurs. Thank you.
