c/o Luna on the Moon CROP TOP: c/o Tara Starlet SHORTS: F21

In 2008, sandwiched in all the Teen Vogue's I would read cover to cover was an ad for Miss Dior Chérie that positively enchanted me - a girl wearing a pink dress and holding a huge bottle of perfume was suspended in the blue skies, held up by a bouquet of pastel balloons.

This photo has stuck with me for YEARS - so much so it was the first thing I thought of when this darling purse by Kirsty from Luna on the Moon arrived! I couldn't quite replicate this photo, but it did make me want to seek out a blue sky as a background - and it was absolute kismet when, after not being able to find any hills that would enable me to get a similar effect, I found a singular wall of a building painted blue with clouds...!

I am utterly in love with Kirsty's purses made into novelty shapes, usually with lots of glitter, aka two of my favorite things! This balloon purse is truly a testament to Kirsty's talent and eye for design, I mean just look at it, it's perfect!

As you might have noticed, along with novelty purses I'm extremely taken with crop tops. This one, by Tara Starlet, fits like a dream and is made with the most darling gingham fabric - making it a vintage lovers dream come true!

  11. Ahh, I was so obsessed with that ad too! It was my favourite perfume ever and the video ad for it was shot by Sofia Coppola and set to a Brigitte Bardot song! Basically every Lula girl blogger's dream come true, both at the time and forever more! <3
