Finding an outfit for every single day is often a drawn-out battle of rummaging, trying, chucking and deciding. Most days I look at my wardrobe and just feel blergh. It's a concoction of selections over the years: the late teen/early university years (i.e. the continuation of awkward appearances whilst finding one's proverbial feet), cheap op… Continue reading five gals for inspiring everyday.
Quite frankly, it could be. And tracking the daily lewks doesn't seem to be helping. We know my wardrobe has been uncovered as largely monochrome - blah blah blah - but what I've come to realise, an enlightenment that only hit me two days ago ( and one that makes so much SENSE in my… Continue reading is my wardrobe making me depressed?
I have found, yet another, creative / talented girl to be crushing on and admiring. Is there a diagnosis for someone such as me? Over the last year or so I've heard Brie Welch's voice many a time via one of my favourite podcasts, Garance Dore's Pardon My French, but somehow failed to put two… Continue reading the dreamy life and style of brie welch.
On the day I wore ( read: attempted to wear ) my Camille Charriere copycat number, I noticed a little girl on the train unashamedly staring, as inquisitive small people are often known to do. I watched her out my side-eye, wondering, "What do you actually think of this?" Is it too boring and adult?… Continue reading fashion ( and the world ) through the eyes of a child.
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.
Because I just did it. Look, technically it was more of a scarf-posing-as-belt plus a legit belt, but same thing really. The concept remains. I am not of the typically physically-blessed, embodying perfect proportions. Instead, it's a battle of the waist / hips and the bum. An ass too big to squeeze into the size… Continue reading is double-belting a thing?
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.
If you had told me seven years ago, while completing the HSC, that I would now be taking part in a fashion writing mentorship with Janice Breen-Burns and VAMFF, I would have laughed in your face. I would have made you feel stupid and offended with that evil teenage ability. Clearly it is now I… Continue reading oh the irony :: an underdog story.
I should apologise - two whingy posts this month already. And it's November! It's meant to be a happy month! And indeed is already proving to be. ( Even with the current shocking, unimaginable results of the US election, I refuse to turn into a ball of negativity. We can only fight to improve this… Continue reading a podcast gift for you.
( A quick disclaimer to you all : this was written in my head as I tried to sleep last night - not helpful for the zzz's - but when I put finger to keypad it never sounds quite so good. I absolutely smashed it in my mind. ) I remember years ago, back in… Continue reading anatomy of :: the flare.
