Michelle Violy Harper's musings on all things unique and obstusely or acutely hideously gorgeous.

Art that may offend. Food that may resemble art. Scents that stink of divinity. The really unreal. And of course the much beloved "Fashion Fail"

Because nothing inspiring is flawless or perfect. It's in the failures, the experiments, and the unique that I find the greatest joy.

This is my dream space. Enjoy.

* with hat once worn by Marisa Berenson for her iconic Vogue cover - and now part of my millinery collection. This was only known to me when someone showed me the image in her book! What a lovely surprise!

When I saw Marisa and told her about the hat and discovery, she was so happy. I can’t wait to send her this funny image. Her cover is perfection, but I think she’ll get a kick out of this one too because of the story as a whole … 

* and i have no idea what that expression is in the last shot - it is as if i’m having some violent reaction to all those brown stripes… which in retrospect makes sense. I don’t think you would ever see me wearing a giant brown striped parka, unless it was in jest.
