YES YES AND YES.
What am I planning on doing when I go home for the holidays? Snuggling with my sisters and re-watching as much Downton Abbey as we can before our tea gets cold.
And I just found the most perfect accessory to do so in.

I was so incredibly lucky enough to go to the 12.12.12 Hurricane Sandy Relief concert in NYC this past wednesday with my family, and my father and I were caught on TV!
Just had to share because it was my .05 seconds of fame (most people usually get 15 seconds, but I'll take it.)

Stick with me here.
The award winning "Feel The Love" music video, by Rudimental (below)
inspired the movie I filmed while studying textiles in south east asia this past summer (below)
and is the precedent to their latest single/video "Not Giving In" featuring Alex Clare (below):
Which is explained in this article.
(spark notes: it follows the lives of two brothers in Manila. Based on the true story of the Director's world champion B-boy friend, Mouse.
I felt the need to tie them together because there's a curiously strong bond between them all.
But "Not Giving In" is not only an excellent work of cinematography, it's also an excellent song. Listen to it.

I have a weakness for anything cosmic. Perhaps it was inspired by my fabulously unorthodox Astrophysics teacher in high-school.
I also greatly enjoy their description:
"A star-spangled kimono that will make its bearer feel… oh, just about universally gorgeous.
The Cosmos pattern, printed on a traditional robe, is a space-goddess way of simply looking great in the morning. "
