Outfit Post 2

I am the absolute most awkward person in front of the camera. Give me a camera and I’m fine to shoot or style or just sit and watch as the photographer begins mission. But so help me god someone puts me in front of a camera with someone else behind it (because let’s face it, selfie game strong)…let’s just say all hell breaks loose.

I am the awkward stage after several awkward stages, impossible to do anything what so ever. I stand there and I laugh at myself and how ridiculous I look in front of the camera or just how ridiculous I look in general and how people are staring please stop staring and and and and…..

But despite all awkwardness we did manage to get some good pictures, thanks to my lovely photographer metalheadanddamsel.

Inspiration: Long Hair

As a personal preference, I do prefer to grow my hair long (at one stage it was past my butt- hard to maintain but looks pretty). I think it's because as a child I always had a hideous little bob cut/bowl cut/ mushroom head, and when it wasn't that I'd have a little tied up fountain sprouting off my head. 
Now you will hardly ever see me with my hair tied up,
 #longhairdon'tcare
I thought I'd put through a little compilation of some long haired beauties, just for a bit of inspiration.

Collection Love: Valentino FW 2014 RTW

I'm a little bit late on this one, but rediscovering Valentino's fall winter 2014 ready to wear collection again made me fall in love with it all over again. 

Ok, I lied, that's not the entire truth. When I first looked at the collection I wondered how such an exceptional designer could come up with such a concept. Jumpy spots, frumpy plaid pieces and vintage looking florals? No. No. No. Valentino please.

Stop.
But amongst these, ahem, "undesirables" I found some gems which are not only beautifully sculpted, but also extremely (mostly) wearable. I did have to look through the collection several times, but saying that; I take back my previous statement. Valentino- I applaud you, you did well. These pieces really speak for themselves.

Inspiration: Mixed Media Art

dreamer
ˈdriːmə/
noun
  1. 1.
    a person who dreams or is dreaming.
  2. 2.
    a person who is unpractical or idealistic.

It's no secret that I love a bit of mixed media in my search for inspiration (as if it wasn't clear enough from this post or this post or this post). The surreal energy found in pieces like these are exactly what I daydream about. Have you ever just stared at something for so long that dots and bubbles and random lines appear out of nowhere?

conceptualism
kənˈsɛptjʊəlɪz(ə)m/
noun
PHILOSOPHY
  1. the theory that universals can be said to exist, but only as concepts in the mind.

It's some kind of subjective conceptualism, which depending on your head could either be super creative, wonderful, amazing, or just plain terrifying if you cant deal with it. It's really just an alternate universe, but maybe the beginning of self discovery.

Outfit Post 1

One thing you may or may not have noticed about this blog is that although it is a ‘fashion blog’ I have not once posted an outfit post where I am physically in it. I’ve always opted for the styling aspect on other people-namely beautiful tall skinny models- as I’ve never really been comfortable with showing my face (or my body for that matter, I’m not exactly the skinniest of beings).

I’ve decided I don’t care anymore.

Anyway you may not have pictured this face when reading, I certainly don’t picture this face in my head when I think of myself, but here goes- my first outfit post! No makeup, no editing, just plain me.

(Jeans were on sale for $24, but I had a giftcard so I got it for $4, jumper received during work experience with the company $0, boots $15, necklace was one sale for $5)
