To clarify–I’m not actually a mermaid. Hard to believe, I know! I am, however, a lifestyle blogger doing my part to keep the postal service afloat and defend my title as the most quirkily-dressed art historian out there.
I’d describe my general aesthetic as “retro magical realism”: I love all things vintage with a dreamy, fairy-tale (and often maritime!) twist. You’re likely to find me poring over a cabinet of curiosities in 50s-inspired attire or tripping eagerly to the post office in a sea-creature-print skirt. If you like admiring mail art, think cephalopods are cute, and don’t mind frequent references to early modern maritime history/cartography/linguistics mixed in with outfit-of-the-day posts, stick around!
And, if it suits you, you should talk to me about shell collecting, mythical creatures, Peter Pan collars, Arthur Rackham, Howl’s Moving Castle, Hudson River School paintings, a certain animated series about passing over various garden walls, and all things magical and anachronistic if you’d like to be friends–or pen pals!
