Identical

I came across this project called 'Identical' by Martin Schoeller about sets of twins who are identical yet they have their differences despite having the same DNA. It kind of led me to think about how small/fast fashion stores produce clothes which are completely identical to the higher brands yet come with a smaller price, and in turn a smaller range of quality. In this case, the 'DNA' is the style or design of the clothing.

In class the other night we were talking about imitation in fashion and how it's hard to spot a fake unless you really know the real thing. Fake's are definitely something that is a big issue in the fashion industry but I don't think it matters whether you have a fake or the real thing as long as that was the look you were going for. I feel like people buy things just for the sake of owning something of a brand name. Sometimes just because something is more expensive, doesn't make it any better. When people are condescending towards smaller fast brands it bugs me because it doesn't really matter?

For example, Kanye West, the man himself, released a line of plain white tee's...and sold them for $120. Call him a fake or call him a genius, people actually bought it. Not to mention the tees sold out almost instantly. Are people really spending $120 on a tee that you can get for less than $2? Apparently so.

Literally a plain white tee
Irrelevent but made me laugh
Fake
Whatever. Originality is basically dead.

Wildfox Swim 2014

Wildfox is one of my favourite brands (see also Ellery, Elie Saab, Dion Lee and Josh Goot). From the top campaigns to the runways to the swimwear, every end product of Wildfox is one that I want to own. Although it is the middle of winter here in Sydney at the moment, Wildfox's 2014 cruise collection, which was showcased at Soho Beach House in Miami for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim last night, makes me crave summer to the highest degree. 
Ofcourse with every show, I do have my personal best picks, in this case every piece with the cute little flamingo motif running through it had to be my favourite. It's simply just because they are cute. I also love the colour combination of pinks, whites and greys. 
I love how they accessorised the show with the chill sunnies, beachy waves and flowers in the models hair. The models were adorable and playful, bumping bums at the end of the runway (I'm not kidding!).

Monochrome

Apologies again for the long absense, I think 6 days has been the longest I have gone without posting. If you follow me on twitter you would know that I have been dying of the flu for the past few days, doing nothing but reading books, sleeping and overdosing on orange juice.
Anyways let's put that aside and hope I don't choke on a sneezing fit in the middle of writing this.


One trend that I've been blatantly ignoring is the whole monochrome thing. Don't get me wrong, I really do like it but when people throw in a million colours with just a speckle of black and white, I don't think that makes it 'monochrome'. I'm sorry, but I did a google images search (real original yep) with the phrase 'monochrome outfit' and the first few images that came up was of double denim wearing, pastel hoarding pictures that did not resemble monochrome in the slightest sense. I think a whole black and white outfit with several coloured accessories may be classified as monochrome but not the latter.


What is happening??
I don't know, I just want the world to go back to being able to wear black and white without screaming look at me in my monochrome, because black and white is classic and monochrome sounds extremely futuristic if I do say so myself. It's the same thing, but I may be a little bit bias as I'm watching a rerun of that 70s show at the moment. xx

Hair Inspiration: 18 Different Braids

One of my most viewed posts is this post (see here) about waterfall braids. There are so many different types of braids going around and so I thought I would create a little braid bible if you will, compiling of 18 different types of braids and braided hairstyles for inspiration!  I haven't got any how to do these braids but if you do a quick search I'm sure it will be easy to find a good tutorial! xx

Photoshoot: Preppy

As part of my styling adventures, I styled a shoot with Alyssa Montgomery Photography about a month ago. One of the looks included was a kind of preppy look which I'm not quite sure why but goes really well with the background. Incase you don't remember or didn't know, we shot out in an abandoned mental asylum in the middle of nowhere, Sydney. This freaky sign was something we just happened to come across while venturing through the semi terrifying area, mounted way up on the giant brick walls surrounding the asylum.

I was kind of going for a creepy school girl look here and I have to say it went pretty well. The top is a simple sheer button up from cotton on, the skirt is the models own. The socks were found in a two dollar shop and the shoes are from boohoo.com. I can't remember where the necklace was from but I honestly wear it everywhere because it goes with literally everything. 


The hair and makeup was done by Zara Moore and I really love how Tasha's hair looks in all of these pictures! The makeup is quite frankly in direct correlation with the theme. I tried my hand at editting with this last picture. Back in high school I used to study Information Software Technology (aka computers) so I know my way around photoshop.Only as a beginner though, I know the basics. I kind of like how it turned out with the paint splatters, kind of like blue blood stains. Creepy enough for you?

Menswear in fashion is a bit of a no go zone for a lot of fashion bloggers, focusing on their own style and ways. I thought I would venture into the world of mens fashion for today and the Phillip Lim collection for Spring Summer 2014 which took place yesterday in Paris really caught my eye. Again like the Staple the Label collection, it was the hair and the accessories at first that drew me in, because the collection itself is fairly simple. I'm also a sucker for boys with a side fringe.

The collection is upper class street mixed with a bit of surfie culture, the fact that some of the men were wearing what looked like a leather version of jelly sandals made me chuckle on the inside. The main colour palette of the looks were white, blue, black and orange. My favourites were the somewhat feminine floral hawaiian bomber jackets.
