Now here's a girl that i know all too well- she's cute (almost sickly so) and okay, she's kind of weird. Some may say she over accessorizes at times- they're wrong. She's absolutely friggin' absurdly fabulous. She's who i aspire to be.
Luella is the under-talked-about genius that does Dollhouse Chic with the best of them (Vivienne Westwood, Betsey Johnson, etc.) and portrays it with a playfulness and youthful charged sexuality that is uncanny. Her ideas are wearable for every occasion from a picnic, rooftop party in London, to a hot air balloon ride over the mountains (editorial idea, anyone?) Quite the perfect punk-rock lolita.
The Fall collection features smashing big hair (Strawberry Switchblade inspired- tres wonderful!), tartans used inspired ways, countless ruffles, and my favourite- peter pan collars! (is it possible to be a real doll without one?!)
Oh, and Luella's Spring 2008 was fab, too! Just for fun here's something i put together using mostly items from that collection. She definitely believes in ass-kicking cuteness!
I'll quote the dear Luella when i state; "cute but always a little sick-- that's my girl."
