A lot of things have been happening this my last post. Among the many, I've been ill with a, frankly, irritating flu/sinus infection that just won't go, I got braces, I dyed my hair, and finally was able to get some of the items on my A/W wishlist! It seems to look more and more like summer is finally over here in England. I've been dragged down from London to the countryside, cancelling all social plans due to this awful illness, and looking outside, I'm starting to feel very autumnal - is that even a word? It's windy, rainy, and theres that crisp feeling in the air that always reminds me of autumn. Plus, the fact that I've been slouching around in a scarf 24/7. Anyway, I've been feeling like I need some luck recently. My family took me out to a little village fair, about 20 minutes away from my country house today. It was sweet, with stalls selling candy floss and old records and home made jam. I stumbled upon a little brooch, partly hidden away by a black velvet cloth, and instantly had to buy it.
Rabbits foot; This belief begun centuries ago when people were fascinated by the creature's running style, in which its hind legs land first, before the front legs. An old english tradition, stemming from celtic beliefs, the rabbit is supposed bring power to the possessor.
Now, obviously, I am going to expect a few formspring messages or comments with the usual "Thats disgusting, etc etc". Believe me, I understand that some people are squeamish about it, including my mother, judging from the fact that we own a rabbit ourselves. However, I DO have a fascination with symbolism, and stranger still, taxidermy. The way that the brooch has been made, the tiny details like the chain, and the silver 'holder' and the whole pre-celtic belief about it are a little plus to such an interesting little piece. Do you have any strange, weird or quirky good luck charms or items at all? I'd love to hear! Panda xo

  26. Hehe, it's that skirt and that bridge again! Love the velvet! :D And I hope nobody leaves you formspring messages saying "ewww gross" cos it's like shut up why does it matter. I think it's quite cute. As long as it's been washed. :)
    Your hair looks really cool! Although I did like it when it was ginger (gingers ftw in my opinion... I'm not allowed to dye my hair, it's too much of a "rare shade" haha) it does look really awesome!

    OMG this has been a bit of a ramble now hasn't it. I do apologise.

    OOOOOH, I was in Beyond Retro and I bought a jumper with a panda on it in case we ever meet up.

    Well that's really creepy, I'll be going now...

  29. I love your entire outfit as always&for some reason I don't find it gross-i think those fox thingies are gross when they still have the legs and head attached...something about it makes me queasy but the rabbit's foot doesn't
    it makes sense, it's a good luck charm
    plus i don't think you're rabbit's like "OMG,CLARENCE?!?!"

    ReplyDelete
  30. WOW! i love the brown hair. I had to check to make sure it was youu ;)
    The rabbits foot looks pretty cool.....hopefully it brings you luck and makes you feel better! Such an old tradition is really awesome, and not disgusting (after all, theres no blood and guts) to me at all.
