family affairs adventures

...When you wake from a nap amidst your garden's dahlia patch you decide to ride your white horse straight to Studio 54...
The Guineviere jumpsuit looks like a dress when you stand. Wear it with or without a belt. A golden bikini would look great underneath.
“No grownups could find us when we
Made our plans so secretly
To run away and fly to be
With the two birds of paradise„
 -The Pretenders
...You are having tea with the Madhatter. Better hurry up and get your oversized sunhat!...
You will be the star at every garden party with this comfortable silk jumpsuit
“I'll follow you into the park,
Through the jungle through the dark,
Girl I never loved one like you.„
 -Edward Sharpe
...Feed the seagulls in Long Island and write new songs in the wet sand...
This cotton shirt dress with a Peter Pan collar comes with lovely anchor embossed brass buttons and pockets!
“I've been out walking
I don't do too much talking
These days, these days
- Nico
i came across the Family Affairs site on wishwishwish the other day, and i adored the way the clothing was supplemented with a cute little description about the "wearer" who might choose these outfits and what exactly to do whilst wearing them! it's like a little adventure is already prepared for you. a video lookbook is already playing in your head as you read the caption and look at the gorgeous clothing.
i've seen some other designers/clothing labels do this fun imaginative type of stuff, too. but i think that Family Affairs pulls it off especially well. the song lyrics are a rather nice touch. =]

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
