Somewhere, Over the Rainbow

It all began with the rainbow I saw on flickr ages ago. It made me smile. A lot. 

Then this season Charlotte Free had me lusting after the bottle of dye at Topshop Unique & Marchesa. She's got that Abbey Lee Kershaw mixed with Lara Stone thing going on.

 Not helped by Thakoon's SS 2012 delicious-looking manes. 

Alana Zimmer & Anais Mali - Thakoon SS2012

Some gals really can pull it off, think Natalie Portman in Closer and Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation. If at all, I think I'll dip my toe in and have the various shades of pinks highlights I sported a decade ago at university. I do love the full-on look, though.

Marni ❤ Hennes

I genuinely don't know how to contain myself. The utterly wonderful Consuelo Castiglioni of Marni is designing a collection for H&M that is launching... 8th March next year! Please, please, please may some of these heavenly pieces be remembered?? 

 Liudmilla Bakhmat & Jacquetta Wheeler - Spring Summer 2002

Candela & Eugenia Volodina - Spring Summer 2003

Elise Crombez & Gemma Ward - Spring Summer 2005

Something to dream of to get me through the long and cold winter nights. 
Bring on 8th March!

Not forgetting their underwear (www.net-a-porter.com). Also in yellow - too perfect. 

I can't help it - it's so beautiful!

I found this beauty on AnOther's Lovers. It is a Urania Ripheus, aka the Sunset Moth. Very apt for my previous Seenigama Sunset post.

There is something that facinates me about moths, even more so than butterflies. Their wings are like the thinest of paper and I love their understated delicacy. I'm off to get my colouring pencils out.
