Heliocentric Electric

My favourite kind of fashion is the kind that lets you escape from the world, if only for a few moments. This lovely set of pictures taken by photographer Elisha Smith-Leverock of Fred Butler's colourful creations does just that. It's so spacey and whimsical that it makes me forget about all of the exams beginning to creep up on little old unprepared me. I'd much rather don one of these hats and go skipping around in a sunny green field. The weather has been kind these past couple of days, I guess I shouldn't complain.

It's ideas like this that make me love fashion like a fat kid loves cake. Shiny! Ridiculous! Fun! Jetson-esque! Desired!

Thank you for introducing me to armored/jeweled accessories. I now love you more.
