stuff i've been diggin

- Geometric prints -

On tumblr recently I have been seeing a lot of eighties style
geometric patterns, which I am literally obsessing over. 



I was trawling through the american apparel website the other day and I found that they were selling vintage swatches. They are really cool and I desperately want one buttt… they're like £90.00 :((

- American Apparel X Nathalie Du Pasquier -

American Apparel has collaborated with the artist Nathalie Du Pasquier to mix new prints with familiar AA styles. The prints are inspired by her work with the 1980s design collective Memphis.

I have to say I am really excited by this collection as the fabrics are very similar to the geometric prints I mentioned before. I will definitely have to buy something from the collection but I am not sure what yet. I'm thinking maybe one of the shirts?¿?

- Space -

I am in love with the idea of space and astrology at the moment (at lunchtime me and my group of friends have been reading our zodiac signs, which have actually been scarily accurate). I have endlessly been doodling pictures of constellations and stars and planets in all my notebooks.









I am so in love with Miso tattoos. I hated the idea of tattoos
before but when I saw these I instantly changed my mind.


  

I found a really cute stationery store the other day called Present & Correct. They sell lots of retro style notebooks in modern prints and colours. My favourite notebook was this one, the pages inside are blue with tiny little white stars.

- Plants -

I have this dream that one day I will live in a cute apartment in a big city like London, where all the walls are white and the furniture is all wooden and very minimalist. I really like the idea of surrounding myself with plants. They make a space seem more calm and natural plus they're really pretty.

  2. I love this! I'm such a fan of those geometrical prints, and plants, and SPACE. I goddamn love space, and stars, and zodiacs, and constellations, and aliens and sci-fi. It's always been a huge part of my life, and I wish I was more willing to stick to science in school so I could go into something to do with astronomy. But I just can't handle physics *sigh*

  3. This is so accurately like me at the moment too. I constantly find myself drawing endless crescents and saturns over my algebra and I adore that constellation tattoo, it's not too obvious but cute too. I love plants too, there's something so fascinating about nature in general.
