It’s been a while, but my parrot obsession is still undimmed.
A pretentious children’s shop in Stoke Newington is currently showcasing these in their window:
I tracked them down to a label called Mini Rodini, who sell overpriced clothing for tiny hipsters. I really need this jumper.
Apparently there’s a childhood obesity epidemic, but it doesn’t seem to have reached Scandinavia, where this label is from. The largest size they do in these still wouldn’t fit me. I am tempted to do some screen-printing and rip this sweatshirt off (also if I spot that budgie fabric anywhere my jumpsuit plans will be resurrected ASAP).
On the other hand, this Charlotte Taylor dress is adult-sized, and possibly the best dress in the history of the world.
It’s like Sonia Delauney with parrots. Luckily it’s sold out as it’s a bit over my budget.
My final parrot find is from Boticca.
I signed up to this accessories website to try and find some interesting wedding earrings, but I find it nearly impossible to navigate. It has the Etsy problem – there’s just WAY too much stuff. Also Boticca send me nearly as many emails as Linkedin, which is a pretty high spamming bar to reach.
However I did manage to find this origami parrot necklace, which is also over my budget. I like to admire it from afar though.
p.s. who’s going to the London meet-up on Saturday? I’m pretty excited about the thought of that many sewing bloggers gathered in one place. It may cause a huge ripple in the space-time-sewing continuum.
