Blog Q&A

The lovely people over at 2threads have sent me a nice email asking me if I'll answer a couple of fashion/time related questions for them, for a chance to win a Storm London watch.

So here goes (I hope I didn't go overboard...):

1. The time you felt most inspired by fashion - your most inspiring fashion moment?

My most inspiring fashion moment was discovering the vast, worldwide phenomenon we call fashion blogging.

Last December, me and my best friend Em, both discovered lookbook.nu and fell in love with all of the snapshots of people’s daily outfits and amazing streetstyle. Through this, I found a link to an Australian “fashion blog” called Le Flassh, and I actually remember spending two hours scrolling through reading Dajana's posts, mesmerised.



From then on, I started my own fashion blog and was inspired to share with others not only my own fashion finds, fixes and faux pas but also my inspirations and the many wonderful things happening within the fashion universe. It was a sort of epiphany to me – not only did I enjoy putting on clothes and shopping and taking photos, I wanted to DO something amazing with this. Fashion has become a huge part of my life, not quite as much as breathing but close to it. I can’t quite explain it, but somehow there is nothing like watching a piece of cloth being cut up and sewn; it becomes something magical that takes my breath away.



2. The time you were proudest of your outfit or style?

Oh gosh, this is difficult; I've had so many style "break through" moments and outifts that I've loved so much I did not want to take them off! Just recently I can think of my friend Tom's 18th birthday party. He is a guitarist and all his guy friends are like rock stars; I wanted to impress!

I decided I'd wear a band tee, but didn't know how to dress it up. In the end, I chose my sick puppies tshirt and my combination of sequin biker jacket, leather-look skirt and Alexander McQueen scarf topped off with black brogues completely made for a killer outfit.

I rocked up to the party wearing smudged eyeliner and felt awesome ALL night. It's moments in time like these that remind me why I want to work with fashion! :)


Sorry about the shitty picture - there are some from the party but I don't have any...

3. The time in fashion you'd most like to return to is...

Oh my god.

Jean jackets. Ripped jeans. Lycra. Bike shorts. Tight, tight jeans. Agressive shoulder pads. Mohawks. Glitter. Overblown graphics. Splatter prints. Neon colours. Crop tops. Aviators. Leggings. Long tees. Hi-tio sneakers. Mini-skirts. Scrunched up leg warmers. Off shoulder sweaters. Big hair. Safety pins. Rubik’s cubes.



I'll give you one guess as to what era I'm referring to...

Just think Flash Dance, or Back To The Future! 1980s. Owh yeah!!
I love the whole 80s daggy, sporty wear and I’d have loved to live in a time when neon leggings, tacky jewellery and crop tops were considered “cool”. Call me a loser but that’s my idea of a fun time! I love dressing up in 80s gear from my mother’s closet; I’d probably get sick of it, but hey, just going back to experience the whole authentic 80s experience would be gold.

Rosie in Vogue España <3





Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. So goddamn gorgeous - that face, her hair and those legs!

She's replacing Megan Fox in the next Transformers film. Megan Fox is, well, she's a fox and I'm not sure if I'll warm to Rosie. She's still pretty fucking hot though.
I love all the edgy pieces and the glamorous make up in this.

Inside joke with my Spec. teacher and my two Spec. buddies :)

MAH BEST FRIEND EM!



Love this one, my babessss.






jem2s again, ah my best friends for life.

My form group, since Year 7 :) ^

So here are photos of my lovely Year 12 formal. More than a week late, but better late than never! Sorry about the shitty quality pics - they're mostly from Facebook and the profesh ones are just previews. I just couldn't wait any longer to show you guys, haha.

My dress was from Myer, on sale (woohoo!) and the label is Stella. I love purple, so fell in love with this dress immediately. I did my own hair and make up too, it didn't turn out too bad. Great night, great people!

On another exciting note: Alannah Hill package arrived - thank you Clear It for the $250 voucher!
Sneak previews of my two amazeballs dresses coming up soon bebz :)

Have a good weekend, darlings.

PS. Ah ah ah I went to the Alannah Hill outlet a few weeks ago, remember that post? Then I won a $250 voucher thanks to Clear It and bought two amaze-tastic Alannah Hill dresses! The package came in the mail and I nearly died. Eeeeeeeeeep!


There are two additional items besides the dresses. Guess what else is inside??

Floral. Leather. Denim.




I still haven't got all the formal/party pics of the weekend's festivities from my friends yet, so this will have to do :)

vintage floral shirt - mum's; DIY cut-offs - savers; shiny new heels - lipstik from myer; leather jacket - friend's sister's haha!

I'm so tired; only a week and a half til holidays, wooot! I will defs post my formal photos by then, I promise!!! I went shopping btw, and nearly bought this amazeballs black dress, all grungey and with sleeves and a low back that showed off my curves in all the right places ;) Damn expensive though, ahhhh so undecided as to whther to buy it or not! I shoulda taken pics to show you all, ah well.

Also, I might post a few more pics of this shoot, what do you think?
It's up to you guys, my readers, of course. I mean if you don't like it I'll just leave it as the one photo. Check out the nifty little hype button thing too for lookbook. Hype if you like :)

Love you guys, don't forget you can follow on bloglovin', mmk?

Erin Featherston Resort '11




Oh my god. I want to be dressed like this every single day. Pure class!

I could delude you and say that I am, but the truth is I'm in my purple checked PJ pants and my red Oxford jumper, sitting at my laptop next to the heater shivering my butt off.

The only thing about this collection I can relate to my life atm is those black shiny patent shoes are the same as the ones I wore to formal! :)

I went to an 18th last night and have another one tonight, and Formal was Friday so I've been sahhh busy, bear with the lack of interesting posts, lovelies! Most likely going to end up grabbing some party pics and pretending it's an outfit post haha.

MLIA.



My. Life. Is. Effing. Amazing.

Not average, not aromatic, not any other 'A' word; ah-mazing.

- First of all, I think I actually did well on my chemistry mid-year exam!
- Second of all, I won my school's Senior Piano Competition (quite a prestigious event) in my final year of schooling.
- Third of all, Friday night is formal and I bought the most amazing shoes and I can't wait and ah ah ahhhhhhhhh.
- Last of all, and I saved best for last, I WON $250 DOLLARS TO SPEND ON THE ALANNAH HILL OUTLET AND I'M ORDERING THE TWO HOTTEST DRESSES ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET.

Jealous?

Yeah, you should be :)

PS. Sorry I haven't posted photos of my musical production yet. I've been busy with other things. And now I suppose I'll post some formal photos too, of me and my BFFLs on the red carpet, ey? ;)

PPS. I am planning my first give-away! Follow on blog-lovin' or google friend connect to stay in the loop!


Oh, and visit the Alannah Hill outlet's site: CLEAR IT!

Pretty. Odd.





Odd socks. I am in love.




Sorry for the huge non-posting last week; as I said, mid-years kill and there have been some nasty things going on in my life. Anyway, I bought a pair of Alannah Hill thigh highs at the outlet the other weekend, and here they are. Well, one of them!



Left sock: vintage knee-hi; right sock: Alannah Hill thigh-highs.


Lame as outfit post, but the main emphasis is on my socks, babes! Ignore the weirdo faces and the boring clothes ;)



Houdini, the cutest rabbit everrr ^^

Going back to Alannah Hill cos this Friday coming up is my Year 12 formal! Soo excited. Trying to find a good hairpiece and possibly new shoes too. And the theme is Academy Awards so we're getting a red carpet and everything, I dieeee.
