Art Lesson Time!!

Kitsch is actually a term coined to denote art that is considered an inferior, tasteless copy of an extant style of art. Well, Kitsch has been brought to new heights with the likes of Ugly Betty and Katy Perry doing much to promote its quirkiness to the masses.

And here I have for you...the ultimate kitschy top and at a price you can't resist!!!!

BD 148, RM10
from My Budget Corner


Double Entry

I know we've only just reviewed a dress from this blogshop but we couldn't resist giving it a double entry!

When I first set eyes in this little number, I immediately thought how Vintage Darling it looked! With a fitted top half and a nicely-poofed skirt, this dress definitely fits her signature 50's influenced style.

Dizzy Dress, RM30
from Skirts and Dresses.

Vintage Darling at her best.

Laney Boogs in a bag

Artsy enough for Rachel Leigh Cook's Laney Boggs in She's All That to carry around, this bag looks like it can certainly carry a lot of brushes, sketch books, and nostalgia. Even if you're not the artsy one, you'd be oozing with some good old school charm, especially with that geeky glasses of yours. We're seriously digging the vibe this bag gives. LOVE!
