I think you need to make children's clothes. Seriously beautiful.
This reminds me of "The Royal Tenebaum," the wall paper in Margo's room. cute!

just one word- beautiful...
I need to applaud Anonymous for noticing the zebra wallpaper reference. YES, it was absolutely in vague but definite reference to Margot's room from The Royal Tenenbaums. But it goes back farther...that wallpaper was originally designed in the '40s (I believe) for the legendary Gino's restaurant on Lex in NYC. It was re-issued by Scalamandre (in 2007-ish?) in its Cabinet de Curiosites collection. So, on my part, it's kind of a nod to a nod to a nod. (I lived in NYC for six years in my 20s, and my French/Dutch grandparents had an apartment there for much of my early childhood).
And btw, the outfit itself is inspired by a National Geographic story from 1932 on the Kandyan dancers of India. The clothing was so stunningly beautiful that I had to re-work it as an outfit for my girls.
so happy i found this lovely blog!!
So interesting to know about the influences behind the zebras. I must google to see the original. Yours how ever - I love those little zebras. I want one of my own :-)
