Yes, but is it art?

I love art, because, you know, 
I'm so high brow...

I often walk through this little tunnel...

And I appreciate the street art...

And it makes me feel all 
real and gritty and urban...

and I have to sing The Message by Grandmaster Flash

I thought I was quite clever and arty 
in my tri-polka dot outfit today

Don't push me 'cause I'm close to the eeedge

I wore: 
Dress, cardigan, bangles, belt, shoes and 
 vintage Pierre Cardin silk scarf - Op shopped
Striped hair flower - Gift from Helgita Burrita 
Yellow hair flower - Made it myself

My little darling four year old niece, 
Annabel, is a pretty fabulous artist. 

Here's a portrait she did yesterday, 
of the two of us.

You're welcome.

I do like your niece's drawings, though I'm sure you're glad your 'ginas don't hang quite so low. She also appears to be poking you in the back. This is how I started and look at me now... comanding up to £50 a painting (minus commission if taken)

You look fabulous too!

Brilliant blog post, love the art work, your neice is ace x

pastcaring said...

My kids said "'gina" too, I rather like it. Though there appears to be some prolapsing going on... (Or you are really chicks with dicks!) And I love that your belly button is bigger than your boobs!
You are so gritty and urban there in the tunnel, I'm a bit scared... Nah, not really, you look polka-dot-pretty!

Your niece is quite the painter. Adore her drawing. It gives a view into her mind.

I love this street art reportage!!
I don't know why, but the wall paintings at your back and the polkadots mixed up in my brain and Roy Lichtestein came out!!
This photoshoot is awesome, you are stunning and your lovely niece is a true artist!

I love street art we have a ton in Portland. Chris and I had our engagement pictures taken in a graffiti park- I gotta share those with you. I love you standing in front of the girl with your triple polka dot action :) you are so pretty Sarah even drawn with a saggy vag:) Annabell is the best! and it's almost your birthday! I'm trying to see if Jack can come by and give you some birthday love - all night long- all night:)

Sara said...

You have the most exquisite frocks! I love, LOVE the splash of red & yellow!

Your niece's drawing is amazing. Your 9 fingers are just incredible and have me giggling my face off..too cute!!!

Ivy Black said...

Bloody brilliant! I love your niece's work...she's got it going on.xxxxx

Franca said...

Now i'm singing the meaage too! I love streetart and i love your nieces drawing, especially the ladybits! there's pictures I did when i was that age and all the men a line between their legs for their willies. these things are not embarrassing when youre four.

Vix said...

Annabel's so cute and mega talented, too. I'm a bit worried about the 'ginas and how big the belly button is in comparison with the boobs but it makes ya think so it must be art, right?
Love today's monochrome with the pop of yellow and cute pumps. You're so beautiful you outdo any fancy art!
Love, Vix xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

cb said...

i love all these murals! we have a ton in this dumpy town that are actually pretty great, the only redeeming quality this poor town has. i should take more pictures of them. you look stunning in your tri-polka dot outfit!

Forest City Fashionista said...

You're the second blogger I've seen this week that has been wearing Black and White with yellow accents. Polka Dots are the best, especially in black and white! Your niece is obviously going to be a superb portrait artist - she has captured your spirit completely (I would be concerned about the 'gina thing though...)

Vintage Curly Girly said...

You must give me lessons in accessorising! You look amazing. Perfect background for your outfit. LOVE Annabel's drawing! Xx

Vintage Coconut said...

Great pics I love all the art.
But my favorite is your Nieces drawing. (OMG it gave me a good laugh, I don't want to know how she would draw a man!!) *hahah*

La Dama said...

love your polka dot prosti among all the graffiti arts.
Annabel's drawing are so cute and ginas mad me crack up so much. My niece draws witch's, aliens and ghost.

Helga! said...

How frigging FABULARSEHOLE is that piece of art by Annabel?! Yeah,low hanging 'ginas maybe,but pretty anatomically correct.Well,for some,I'm sure.
LOVE this dotty outfit,you're looking like a mighty fine piece of art yourself,mi amor!
Art scmart! I do like it,but can't be arsed with the bullshit!Street art can be awesome,and these are some fab examples!!Nice to walk by that everyday!!
Love you more than murals!

karensomethingorother said...

Okay, the drawing is DELIGHTFUL. This young artiste should meet Ella. They can both discuss their love of lady parts. Wonderful!

You looked like a picture yourself in front of that fun street art.

Lucy Nation said...

This made me laugh. Very interesting background and I like your slant on the whole highbrow thing :) x

Konad-licious said...

OMG, my MIss 3 also says 'ginas' but hers is more drawn out on the i, making it something like giiiiiiiinassssss.

Annabel draws it like it is. I always love kids art because it tells you what is important in their world. I have a grandson who always includes a heart inside every person he draws. Love the first two photos--in which you are IN the eye of the beholder.

Sue said...

I love polka dots to bits, and I love the street art!! Your little niece is a way cool artist, bet she didn't draw that at pre-school/school. So cute, and I'm thinking loves Aunty Sarah lots and lots!!! Have a lovely weekend Sarah. ♥

Vintage Sweetheart said...

love the polka dots and the yellow and black! annabel is a clever cookie and into details apparently. xxxx

Thick Threads said...

that street are is amazing, i dont blame you for feeling super urban :) you look adorable in the polka dot dress and the red shoes! i love it.

the drawing by your niece is amazing! you've go to save that for her to see when shes older


Lakota [Faith Hope and Charity Shopping] said...

teehee, Annabel is brilliant, her likeness of you both is UNCANNY. My son is obsessed with my boobs but thankfully hasn't started drawing them yet.

I love a bit of street art, me, follow blogs on it and everyfink. Fab dress my dear. I am making a rare appearance on my own blog today ;-)


Trees said...

I have rather a soft spot for street art too:)

I love this outfit - it looks amazing on you.

Also your nieces drawing is priceless!

lasophia said...

I'm also high brow if you haven't noticed. I refuse to eat American chocolate and I also follow myself on blogger. Looking fine in black and white and love your taste in art, children's doodles included.

Jessa Belle said...

Your outfit is delightful and how funny is that drawing?! Oh dear!

Love & Lollies... Jessa

Tri-polka dot outfit with yellow! Makes me smile! Your photos are fabulous.

Miss Peregrin said...

I love your tri-polka-dots & the street art, but most of all, I love that drawing! It's awesome that your 'ginas feature so heavily in the picture.

one denim bird said...

Oh my you ARE all clever and arty. You are truly sensational in that tri-polka-dot dress, and the yellow acessories are so you. The picture of you and the gorgeous Annabel is beautiful and priceless!
Love it x


Love street art, and YOU.
