Dear Creatures

c_03

The Dear Creatures lookbooks are always something to look forward to, dontcha think? For fall it was 60s Girl Scouts and now it's this sort of creepy-living-in-a-doll-house sort of vibe mixed with just a smidge of good ol' Americana (they say it's Parisian, and I suppose it is, but the stripes and chambray just seem more American to me - maybe it's the red, white and blue of the photos?). I especially love those high waisted shorts. I think this summer might be all about the shorts. We'll see. I would also take that striped dress in about a hot second.

I see a bit of sailor inspiration going on here as well. I've thrifted a few spring-like sailory pieces lately but they've all been thrown into a bag marked "spring" and put away for now. It'll be so much fun opening up that bag once the weather warms up. I always forget half of what I throw in there and opening it is a little bit like Christmas morning.

I just browsed it yesterday and their concept description was too good! Jack Demy's The Umbrella's of Cherbourg and 1960's Parisien films!

The rich bright colors, the slight doll-like creepiness-- I love it! I really like what Dear Creatures has been doing with their lookbooks, they're always so creative.

I had never heard of them before last fall when they made the blog rounds. Good to see they are just as excellent in the spring.

Thanks doll,

Thanks for all of your comments!

I'm glad you're all liking this as much as I did.

Quincy: I don't know! I'm hoping Modcloth is going to carry that striped dress.

I feel like I've been waiting for this lookbook for months and months. I love that chambray blouse and the shorts with suspenders that are online. Thanks for sharing!

I'm thinking shorts will be big too, they seem to keep popping up everywhere, or maybe it's just because I'm looking out for them :) I missed out on a lovely silk pair on ebay the other day because I forgot about the auction and they went for £11! I hate it when that happens!

I love the wall papers, it looks lovely and very enchanting, it’s like you’re trap inside a room with no door.
