Capturing The Stars

The personal moon project is making fairy tales come true for romantics everywhere...




Remember the fairy tale about the girl who wanted to wear the moon around her neck as a necklace? Well, Peter Pilotto did capture the majesty of the night sky for all dreamers (with big wallets) to wear on their back.

I have those moon pictures as my desktop background - just the other day my friend asked about them and their awesomeness. I especially love the one on the boat (there is another one in snow, not pictured, that is lovely).

What's even more awesome is that sweet sweet bluey/greeney star top/dress/tunic thing. Anything Celestial really brings out the romantic in me :)

*lusty*

what a wonderful project, I love the stars. i wish i could identify more constellations besides the big dipper, the stories are so interesting. those clothes are gorgeous as well, last summer i was at this really remote beach and I could see the streak of the milky way and about a billion other stars. Thats what the dresses remind me of.

I love this! Makes me think of:

"How soon unaccountable I became tired, and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I wander'd off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars."

Rike said...

I love this!
Reminds me of "the mighty boosh", where they created a moon by lubricating a man with shaving foam.

What gorgeous pictures!! And those dresses are too neat...

By the way, good idea about hemming that maxi dress. If for some reason it doesn't sell, I'll keep it and do that! :D

kater said...

I used to have a book when I was little, about a boy that I think made a giant moon to put in his room and light up :) It came with a little moon nightlight/lamp things :D I wish I had it still, or remembered the name of this, it reminds me of this.

Chester said...

The Stylish Wanderer said...

OH god I love those cosmic dress. I NEEDNEED

_nina_malvada_ said...

thanks for the comment girl..
i saw your dress from asos and i thought i should pay a visit at the site...cool... :)

Diane said...

That dress is amazing!!! I could never pull it off but it's pretty wonderful looking.

I sometimes worry about getting taken as a Lolita fashion follower as well so I try to be careful with it. It's hard to dress a certain way without being labeled! Most of the time, though, I just go with my gut feeling when putting together outfits.

Tina { Luphia Loves... } said...

the photos are gorgeous!! and amazing outfits too!!

Juliet said...

I love love the fashion but omg those photos are amazing! I want one (or all!) on my wall!

how magical.

maeko said...

Reminds me a bit of Sailor Moon, and brings me back to Childhood. Also reminds me of the movie Stardust, though I can't say why.
I have always loved stars and moons and I hope this becomes a book or something.
