From Ariel to Ann Blyth I have always been fascinated with mermaids, when I was eight I used to try and swim with my feet together, you know so I could move elegantly like a mermaid. However, in all honesty I am a pretty terrible swimmer, so I would probably not make a great mermaid, but I do splash a lot so you know, I am half way there. On several occasions I have been known to have giggling fits whilst in water and I seem to sink when this happens. Anyway I digress here are my current mermaid inspirations.
|The one who started it for me|
|Peter Pan's Mermaids Knew How to Accessorise|
|Mr Peabody and the Mermaid Poster|
|Miranda 1948 with Glynis Johns|
|Ann Blyth in Mr Pea Body and the Mermaid 1948|
|Coca Roca in Vogue|
|Gemma Ward as a mermaid in Pirates of the Caribbean 4|
Rotting like a wreck on the ocean floor,
Sinking like a siren that can't swim no more
Your songs remind me of swimming,
But I can't swim any more- Florence & The Machine
|Asos dress that I could wear in the bath|
|White Glittered Knobby Starfish|
|Fantastic hat, 'Neptunes Daughter' by Kelly Marie!|
Even though I am still eight at heart, I am slightly more sophisticated with my inspirations, where as I used to wrap bubble wrap around my legs (they look like scales obviously) I now look to wearable fashion to quench my desire to be a mermaid.
