So right now I'm back in Australia which has now became my home away from home as my mum, dad and sister are now living in a smallish town south of Perth. I've got a couple of months of work and its Uni holidays so I'm in need of creating a blog. Why? To use as a sort of journal. Things that inspire me, make me, me. I basically want to entice you into something weird and wonderful over the next few years of my fashion student days and beyond. Who knows. I'm gong to give it a bash anywho.
Fashion is a weird word to me, is it clothing, accessories, shoes, bags etc bundles into one word. That summarises it all? A sort of what is now and what is on trend type of thing? For me it's a culture I guess. It's everywhere, from plain Jane at the coffee shop in her dungarees and layers of woollen cardigans and jewellery she picked up in a thrift shop to Alexa Chung (a style icon of mine) at the fore front of each fashion event wearing perhaps a Chanel coat with tailored trousers and Miu Miu shoes. However, the culture will change rapidly but yet right now my favourites are the ones pulling out their denim jackets from 4 years ago and flinging on a silk shirt with an oversized knit and some vintage Docs maybe. I guess that's where style is coming from now really, I find myself more often on other blogs or distracted in lectures at what the people around me are wearing than what's straight off he runway now. Is that a good thing?
Anyway, my friend has just flew off back to our home of Scotland and I'm out here for another 5 weeks. So I've been trying to keep myself sort of motivated I guess and caught a look of the Resort 2014 shows on style.com and House of Holland has excited me lots.
I'm in love with the longer sleeve t-shirt style. The colour palette in HOH has always got me interested.
