     Here’s something to keep you busy until Episode VII: The Force Awakens!

     Star Wars: The Complete Vader is an excellent coffee table book from Random House at a bargain price!

     There are plenty of glossy images, pullouts and keepsakes with a surprisingly thorough text, so even hardcore Star Wars fans should see or read something new 🙂

     A heartily recommended time waster.

A little about the direction of our shop, we are vintage clothing, as well as accessories, t-shirts we designed ourselves, and clothing that has been made a piece of art (pic related).

Some amazing photos AND fashion, what’s not to love?

Fashion Fetishism.

Should you be one of my followers (if not, do sign up, I’ll even promise you virtual cake or some such for your birthday) you will have noticed that I am somewhat of a fan of Fairytales. Now, I assume you’re looking for the follow box on the right.. there you found it!.. Yes, it’s a quote from Alice in Wonderland..well done!  As should be clear from this blog that I have a thing for fashion as well, so stumbling over these pictures with the adorable Annie Leibovitz was a special delight and made a sunny afternoon even better.
