dangerous angels

of all the books I've read, francesca lia block's will always have a special place on my shelf- literally: my room in paris is not filled with many things, my time here is spent rather minimalistic, but I brought at least four of her books with me like old friends that will whisper to me when I need my mind to be lit up with moonlight.
the books belong to those kinds of things that remind of magic and how words are such a powerful measure to transform the world, as good and as bad as it is, into rose-petal filled, lipstick stained, scarred, strawberry kissed, whimsical, naked dancing, imperfect, glittering, ethereal beauty, let it be gloomy or bright.
wildfox also noticed this and was inspired by block's Weetzie Bat Books (my favourites, if you nail me down) for a series of pictures.
weetzie, being the serie's shimmering main character, was captured beautifully here, a flighty pixie with moonlight hair, a love warrior, a wild child in antique dresses, tutus and feather headbands.
there is chai tea latte and some reading waiting for me so I'm sending you into a november night but really, I'd love for you all read these books and share your stories with me.

I love these books as well. Not crazy about the editorial though - too hipster for my tastes.
