We are well and truly clear of fashion month now. Obviously, designers and labels across the board, from luxury to fast fashion, are pouncing on the feminist movement and strong political undercurrents that are on the lips of (almost) every living being right now. It's not new this season; it's not a new “trend”. But… Continue reading dressing the modern day suffragette.
It's easy to become so distracted in your own world, that you forget other worlds exist out there. My world is not your world, which truly is no one else's world either, is it? I mean, who even knows if we are seeing the same colour when we claim something is of an 'apricot' or… Continue reading interchangeable fashion.
I have a confession to make. There is one major downside to dressing a little bit more sustainably. I've been walking around with a hole in my jeans. The even greater problem is the frequency of this occurrence - like, let's estimate, every one in four wears, at least. My treasured Nudie jeans are getting… Continue reading the downside of sustainable fashion :: a jeans story.
I've started thinking that maybe I should document my outfit explorations of 2017 ( likely weekday only - I turn into a bum come the weekend ). A new challenge for me creatively, a visualisation of my daily creative pleasure, and an easy access record of those pairings I love, those that worked, and those… Continue reading this year’s creative challenge.
Two important points of reflection for you, my friends. #1. How great is the Canadian tuxedo? The perfect pairing of denim on denim - one that is so daring, so difficult to pull off, that it will only work if you flaunt it. Be confident and everyone will believe you. It's a lesson in boosting… Continue reading anatomy of :: the canadian tuxedo.
I've been thinking about how to spend my remaining department store vouchers and birthday money, and my stomach groans every time. Shopping trip anxiety is real. Even the online shop drives me crazy - figuring out the right size ( hopefully ), the pain of returning if it's wrong, that ghastly shipping cost. Not to… Continue reading the shopping avoidance syndrome.
My aversion to perfection was recently openly displayed to all with the ending of the latest Bachelorette Australia season. While most were cheering for Lee, the seemingly "perfect" one, I was behind Matty all the way - the underdog, fun-loving, not-too-serious but totally-in-love one. Everyone would say, "but Lee is perfecttttt, how could you not… Continue reading away from perfection.
I'm always excited for summer, every time it comes around, but this year I think the feeling is even greater than usual. It's all because I've come terms with the fact that the period may not be what I typically determine as "perfect". It's more about going with the flow and making the most of… Continue reading manspiration :: martine rose.
In the last few weeks I've started giving my daily outfits little names, just to add to the creativity and encourage some lesser-worn combinations. Outfits of note have included : - 'Sexy working mom' ( which has to be said with an American twang, or it just doesn't work ) - a jeans and print… Continue reading model musings :: nini nebieridze.
I think I would probably have enough content (read: millions of saved pins, liked Instagram posts, bookmarked street style collections, etc. etc. ), to establish a post just dedicated to denim every month. The textile that surpasses all genres, genders and age. My absolute favourite. It’s rare that I spend a day without denim -… Continue reading denim days forever.
