What Up?

So I know I know, there's been a serious lack of MerrieGirl action recently. Life has been manic, moving house, finding a job, blah blah blah blah blah... You get the picture.


I have been updating my autre blog:

It's not the long, interesting posts that you'd find here, more my inspiration, my work, thing's I'm doing in the day-to-day... That kinda thing.

So if you're wanting your MerrieGirl fix then head over there for the time being.

And enjoy the sunshine!
Love and peace,

You Can Tell a Lot About a Man From His T-Shirt

I had a bit of spare time on Monday, so I decided to have a bit of a mooch through Selfridges, check out the new stock, people watch etc etc when I came across these beauties. Passarella Death Squad T-Shirts. I'm a big fan of the T-Shirt, it's a total style staple and everyone should own one unbelievably cool T-Shirt. These would certainly be a good start. I love the union flag one, and in these 'Come On England', World Cup times, it's the most stylish way to be patriotic!

Here's a selection of my personal faves from the website, which I think somebody should go to and buy me a selection from right now (I'm utterly skint so until I win the lottery it's the old faithful band T's clothing my fashionable back)

Love and Hugs,

Douglas Booth is Beautiful

Anyone who's been paying attention will know that there was a truly unmissable show on the BBC recently - Worried About The Boy.

It starred the fabulous Douglas Booth, see the recent Burberry campaigns to see what I mean. He's the one with the perfect jaw-line.

It was a documentation of the rise to fame of Boy George. It was probably one of the best things I've seen in AAAAGES.
Here are a few stills from the show, note the Cramps T-shirt George/Douglas wears - I have the same shirt! Quite the 'squee' moment I can tell you!

Enjoy :)

George's 'straight' love interest, Kirk and his roackabilly girlfriend.

George, Marilyn and some of the other inhabbitants of the squat/Blitz crowd.

George finds Marilyn about to leave with a lover (note the shirt!)

George talks to Malcom McClaren about breaking into the music biz.

Looking sultry as the cloakroom attendant at Steve Strange's Blitz club.

George wearing the coolest T-Shirt ever, I own this T-shirt! :D

"What are you good at?" "Make up."

George and Kirk discuss song-writing.

"You look like a girl, tell me you're a girl." "I'm your girl."

Love and hugs,
