Bananas.

As the great Rachel Zoe once said, "that. is. bananas." The term caught on, and a catch phrase was born for the great celebrity stylist.


Pictured: Milk & Honey "Bananarama" dress & Banksy's "Wall & Piece".

I have once reflected my>past trouble with fruit themed pieces on here, not knowing how to style them, however, when I recently spotted this amazing "Bananarama" by Milk & Honey on a mannequin in Myer, I turned to Georgie, having surveyed the 1950's rockabilly style, the pale blue and yellow colour combination and Jeremy Scott style print and said, "Oh my god, I need that dress." A frantic search broke out between the two of us trying to locate said dress in The Basement, until we spotted it hanging on a hanger across the room, the last one left.
Cautiously we approached the dress, I tried to prepare myself for disappointment incase the last one was not my size. Slowly I removed the item from the rack and peaked at the size tag, the stars must have alined for me that day, as it was my size and it fit perfectly! Hazzah! It is fair to say that I am in love.

I also picked up renowned street artist Banksy's book "Wall & Piece" (Ha Ha Banksy, nice play on words there, why you so cleaver?). I recently purchased another book "Banksy myths and legends" and watched his film, "Exit Through The Gift Shop", and I got to say he is one very very cleaver and fascinating man. I know one of the main things about him is the whole anonymous thing, but his work is so intelligent and honest, and to be frank, he is funny as fuck. I wish to be friends with the man.
If you haven't read his book or seen his film, I highly recommend getting on that. Or if you don't even know him, look him up! NOW!

Anyway, I finally finished and photographed my DIY jewelry stand, so be expecting a post on that in the near future.

until next time chickens!

  2. Wow! I just bought this dress on clearance. $30!! Score!!!!! My almost 3 year old son insisted I get it. He started singing bananas in pyjamas very loudly and saying "funny dress Mummy funny dress". Yours is the only pic I can find on Google, all the other images seem to be smoothies but I guess what you get when looking for milk, honey and bananas.
