Today has been a little damp and grey so to counteract this I'm taking you all on a Magical Mystery Tour! Whenever I wear this slightly barmy frock I feel like I'm living in the Magic Roundabout, the colours and pattern are v. far out.
I recently went to London and saw the Matisse Cut Outs exhibition on a whim and I'm SO glad I did it was truly inspiring. I definitely urge you to go if you are in London before September 7th. Anyway on arriving home I purchased a pack of coloured card from Hobbycraft and got to work snipping alla Matisse. My first attempts I've used here as a backdrop and remind me very much of fuzzy felts (I so want some now that I've remembered they exist- particularly the ones below).
1960s & 1970s children's telly and illustration is a big influence in my daily life and wardrobe. I particularly enjoy Magic Roundabout as it was about the only programme I watched as a small person when I went to my grandma's house (we didn't have a telly at home until I was a teenager). I just love the colours bizarre characters and storylines, and clunky, hand made feeling of it.
Despite the title of this post (and loving the album) I've never actually watched Magical Mystery Tour, I am remedying this tonight though and watching it whilst wearing this dress and dreaming of warmer climes!
The trailer is great and I leave you with the song Blue Jay Way (even if you hate the song, George Harrison's suit is a dream!)
I hope you all have happy weeks!
