So,  I have to show you my gnome outfit I wore recently to my interviews with Elton John, Emily Blunt and James McAvoy for Gnomeo & Juliet. The movie was adorable! As a huge fan of gnomes ( Exhibit A and Exhibit B), I had to go all out and spread to everyone my freakish love for gnomes. Don’t laugh, but everyone has a weakness- mine happens to be miniature bearded men in pointy hats with an affinity for gardening.

I am wearing a skirt by Made With Love By Hannah, shoes by Irregular Choice, shirt from the depths of my closet, and cardigan by Anthropologie. Lilly pad/ladybug hair clip from Patricia Field‘s circa when I still had a pager and Hair Rosettes by ‘Tressa the Hairdressa’ from PuppycatMeow.

By the way, I wish they made this in my size! By DollFace girls.

One thing I suck at is origami. Seriously, even my paper airplanes can’t fly! My origami boats are all lopsided and sad. Fortunately, I leave that to the professionals (my 5 year old) and just step away from the paper. I remember I had this friend who would make  a cloth dinner  napkin into a penis. I’d get up from the table for five minutes and I’d come back with a penis napkin on my plate. What’s wrong with a damn swan?! Anyway, Origami Jewelry has memorialized the art of origami into cute  silver and gold necklaces. My favorite is the bunny, of course. I hope I didn’t given them any ideas for an origami penis necklace. Actually, that maybe a hot seller. Your welcome, Origami Jewelry!

Australian shop Lark is exactly the kind of store I LOVE! It’s filled with unique, cutesy, girly, vintage items that are destined to become heirlooms. ( I could be a little dramatic, right now because no one right is gonna use 40 year old soap.) Anyway, here’s a run down of everything I loved in their online store:

1. Fun Fact: I collect cuckoo clocks and gnomes. (That probably explains everything.) Anywho, these cuckoo clocks are extra-special because they’re FELT! Awesome is an understatement. But I predict it would be covered in cat hair by day 3 at my house. Even more FUN!

2. Deer soap- So vintage-y and Bambi-like. LOVE  it so much that I probably would never use it. Woe is me.

3. A Diner lunchbox/handbag- It’s a 1950s partaaay!

4.A pigtail kit- Because it’s a dire necessity in any girl’s life. I ordered two.

5. Vintage Dinner Placemat- Excellent way to remember which side the silverware goes. Also, an excellent way to serve food without dishes…. maybe not.

6.An owl purse- My Goldfrapp obsession continues…

7. Felt deer’s head- Brilliant!!!! No deers died for that, but the felt felt something.(Gong! Wait one more.. almost done….)

8.Teacup gift wrap- But, of course!

Okay, you can use the hook now.

Central Saint Martins graduate Onez Lau’s  2010 collection was a homage to cute woodland creatures like unicorn, birds and deers. I have to say the unicorn is pretty clever and the most cute out of all three. However, the other two, the bird and the deer, are just caaaarrrrrraaazy. I mean, if my neighborhood hobo with dreadlocks wore this, I would think , “Poor thing, he must be really cold piling on every sweater, feather and fur remnant there ever was on him. He must’ve gone through a West Hollywood dumpster a day after the Pride Parade or Bill Cosby’s sweater emporium.”  Having said that, I’ll take the My Little Pony Parker, please!

Photographer Lissy Elle shows the eerie and the beauty of the woodland forest. As a woodland forest fan (only because of the gnomes (yeah, that’s me), deer and bunnies) I really like these photos. It’s like the set is telling a story. Like after you have a tea party alone in the woods, get the hell out before it gets dark or some crazed, serial killer is gonna chop off your arms and carry them all dainty-like in a fruit basket. I think that’s what Lissy’s trying to convey. Having said that, I’m gonna stay away from the woods for a little while. Check our her flickr for more cool photos, especially the gravity-defying images.

Check these cool hats by Zara Carpenter and Dadaya!

Let’s start with the wounded Bambi- As you may know, I love gnomes and deer. So this would be fantastic addition to my wardrobe. Although, the arrows in the deer’s butt is cruel, I still like it because it’s so macabre. It costs about $450, so I better start saving those pennies!

The mini-beret is adorable! Perfect for my gnome in my garden!

I know whenever Jean-Charles Castelbajac shows a collection, it’s sure to be fan-friggin’-tastic! I mean, a lego fashion show, Muppet-mania… what else can he do to win my childlike heart? BAMBI, wurd! My love for Bambi came around the time I started going potty by myself, but I still get a flutter in my tummy when I see the doe-eyed deer (did I just say deer twice?). Anyway, as you may know, anything involving a forest full of woodland creatures wins my vote! Especially, cartoony ones. Although the silver outfit above is also winning my heart. Having said that, I’m craving baked potatoes.

PS- Why doesn’t Style.com have any of Castelbajac’s collections online?? Seriously, they’d better RECOGNIZE!
