Hello again! I told you I would be back, I am an honest person after all. I’ve been super busy recently so I’ve been trying to fill every spare minute that I can with my recent read ‘Beautiful World, Where Are You’ by Sally Rooney and (quite embarrassingly) Charli XCX’s whole discography. The need for nostalgia is at an all time high at the moment so please feel free to mock me, I promise it won’t hurt. Charli XCX did however have a big impact on 2015 me so I guess my sudden addiction to her isn’t so unexpected.

But let’s move on. Today, I wanted to create a post that was a tradition on my old blog where I share everything from art, film stills, excerpts from books or even just photos that I’ve liked and found on the internet. Voilà, a visual mixtape! I hope you enjoy!

David Bowie steps out at Kyoto train station, 1980

I am completely envious of how effortlessly cool he is.

Lady Lazarus by Sylvia Plath (Ariel Poetry Collection)

I’m slowly but surely making my way through this poetry collection and falling more deeply in love with Plath. Of course I had to share the infamous ‘Lady Lazarus’.

Film Still from The Royal Tenenbaums 2001, Directed by Wes Anderson

Margot Tenenbaum exuding pretentiousness. What’s new?

Film Stills from Daisies 1966, Directed by Věra Chytilová
Devon Aoki for The New Yorker, Early 2000s

Some style inspiration from the one and only Devon Aoki. I would happily wear this entire ensemble in a heartbeat!

Artwork by Ana Teresa Barboza

I came across Ana Teresa Barboza’s work during a slightly hysterical evening spent catching up on my art coursework. Although by the end of it I was completely drained, I think the 5 hours were worth it simply due to my newfound discovery in Barboza. Her embroidery work is beautiful!

Jane Birkin, 1969

It takes everything in me not to cut a fringe like hers.

Hairstyle Inspiration

I can’t wait to attempt these hairstyles in the morning whilst I inevitably run late to school. The perfectionist in me will raise hell.

The Virgin Suicides, 1999

One of my favourite book adaptations to the screen. Sofia Coppola’s directorial debut could not have been better.

Alexa Chung

My sin, my soul, Alexa Chung. She has been my style favourite ever since she published that little pink book of hers and brought back Peter Pan collars. I have also made the decision to use default Instagram filters again to commemorate the time when she was at her peak.

Thank you so much for reading! Until next time.

All my love,

Arabella x
