Lemon yellow and leopard print

A very brief outfit post which, I've just realised, doesn't contain any vintage whatsoever! It's bound to happen, sometimes. Anyway, I wore this when I went to see Frankenweenie with my mum. I  was relieved to find that I really enjoyed Frankenweenie (I've loved Burton's films for a long time but completely disliked the last couple) and this outfit is pretty comfortable, so it's good for the cinema. 

Outfit details: sunglasses - Dangerfield; blouse - Cotton On; belt - Valley Girl; pants - Miss Hussy; shoes - KMart.

I think I liked Weird Girl's style the best in Frankeweenie. I wondered if she was meant to have a bit of a Village of the Damned look about her? (The eyes and hair).


I appreciated the many nods to old monster movies, too, one of the obvious being Persephone the poodle's Bride of Frankenstein hair.

  1. Yay, I'm glad you liked it! I'd love to see it again since we watched it at midnight after a long day, I think I may have spaced out a bit while watching it but I loved it anyway. And I looove Weird Girl. I get the idea she's based on Staring Girl from Burton's book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories, they're very similar. Definitely get the Village of the Damned feel from her too. And I love your outfit, perfect choice from the movie... it almost reminds me of the ladies from Edward Scissorhands a bit (but way cooler of course).

  2. Gorgeous outfit, those pants are killer. I really enjoyed Frankenweenie but I think I preferred Paranorman, did you see that? Yeah weird girl is the bestest xxx

  3. Such a lovely outfit! And it pleases me to hear that you loved the film. I, too, have disliked Burton's recent films.

  4. Aww you look gorgeous! I love Miss Hussy, I bought a dress from her about 6 years ago and adore it! Only worn it once! Must dig that out! :) Have a braw day xxx

  5. I didn't see it for the moment, it's not yet out in FRANCE... perhaps for Xmas I think...
    I always love leopard stuff so much!!!!

  6. Great outfit, dear Andi - I really like how beautifully the soft, springtime perfect yellow counterbalances the dark leopard pattern. Don't worry at all about not having any true vintage in this outfit. A look made entirely from vintage appropriate pieces can often be just as lovely (especially when it's put together by someone with your superb sense of style).

  7. You look nice in yellow! Leopard pants can be quite versatile... Who cares if none of it is vintage-You still look it!

  8. Hey, just wanted to say I'm so glad I found your blog! You seem awesome. Nice to read a blog from someone who is a. Australian and b. kinda looks me.


I read and greatly appreciate each and every comment. Thank-you! x
