I do not think that they will sing to me.
I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white & black.
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed in seaweed red & brown
Till human voices wake us, & we drown.
- Mermaids -- T.S. Elliot
When I was growing up, The Little Mermaid was always my favourite Disney movie. I had strawberry blonde hair, was a fish in water and I also found the story horribly romantic. Mermaid inspired fashion is going to be huge for 2012 so I thought I would share with you some inspirational photos as well as some runway looks!
I loved the story by Hans Christian Andersen. My favourite illustrations were by Charles Santore. Here are some of them:
Urban mermaid: A whimsical, Walt-Disney inspired dream come true. Floor length glittering pieces, aquamarine, turquoise, pearls, sequins, and every shade of blue-- this season brings the ocean to wherever you are.

Hope you enjoyed the looks!

What do you think about the masks at Alexander McQueen?
Mint green is going to be a huge colour this spring. I bought a bottle of nailpolish in that colour (similar to the Tiffany's box) a few months back and since I'm snowed in today (sigh) I'm going to go paint my nails and dream of spring and being a mermaid!
