Since I've been off sick, I've been watching a lot of movies. I watched Almost Famous today for the first time in ages & I forgot how much I loved it. It may have a place in my top five movies of all time...
Perth is supposed to be nearing the end of winter but all this rain is kind of making that hard to believe! So I thought I would show you the ultra cute gumboots (or wellingtons, or whatever you call them) from Plueys!
...Or, if you're more the staying in type, then perhaps some of the Whooga ugg boots would be more your fancy? (Note: Gin in a Teacup does not endorse wearing ugg boots outside the house. Seriously).
So please check them out if you still want a discount & want to warm you feet this winter!
The tour that I most know her for is her Blonde Ambition Tour. That hair! That cone shaped bustier! That... is pretty much all I know it for (since I wasn't actually alive when it was on). Jean Paul Gaultier was the man responsible for the edgy & provocative costumes. Gaultier called designing for Madonna "one of the best times of my career".
Gaultier also said "Madonna is fabulous. She is a fashion freak, un monstre de mode. I remember the first time I saw her on TV singing Holiday, and I was thinking she was English. I couldn't think she was American to dress like that. And when I met her in the flesh I was not disappointed".
The Like a Virgin song sequence on the tour was the most controversial, with Madonna lying down on a bed - with two (allegedly) hermaphrodite dancers behind her - and simulating masturbation. In Toronro & Canada, police received several complaints about the "lewd and obscene" behavior in this scene and demanded she changed it. In the end, no changes were made and the bed was later donated by Madonna to UNICEF (obviously this entitled her to FREE BABIEZ 4 LYFE!!).
...for all these things on my birthday in a couple of weeks (the 31st, to be precise!).
(clockwise, roughly): Party Planner dress, sunglasses from Girl Props, Rodarte-inspired shoes, a leopard skin laptop case, The Boat That Rocked on DVD, cigarette earrings from Girl Props, labbit rings from Tarina Tarantino, Famous ring from Girl Props, lots of birthay kisses!, Planet Blossom Ring from Tokyomade, Melissa x Vivienne Westwood "Dragon Lady" shoes, a new camera, & vanilla icecream with wafers!
So, here is my little love letter to my favourite cartoon style inspirations.
