Confessions of a Fashion Lover!



Hi Dolls,

I'm sitting here watching Australia's newest fashion show, Fashion Bloggers, thinking how blessed we are to be living in a time where fashion can be expressed in so many different ways. 
We no longer live in a time were fashion is controlled by a handful of designers trying to get all of the profits but rather an ocean of designers where we can find whatever style that best suits each persons personality.

Fashion is something that has been my passion from a young age. I was raised in a low income family, but being the only girl, my parents always made sure I was dressed in the prettiest, frilliest dresses possible. So I blame them completely for my love of dresses and everything girly.

I love seeing people who are brave enough to stand out of the crowd with their fashion sense. I think fashion is portable art, an expression of the artist wearing it.
If you have been following my blog for a while you would have noticed that I tend to dress like a Japanese school girl or a toddler, depending my mood. But the great thing is I don't have to be the same person every day, the next day I can be more reserved and follow a more low key style.

A couple of designers I love to wear are Alannah Hill, when she was designing for the brand, and also Review. What I love about both of these brands is the vintage inspiration they both have. I also love the use of vintage tones and the way they keep their style feminine and chic.

What I can't go without are scarves, stockings and cute skirts. 
I own so many of each of these things, every time I see a unique pair of stockings I can't help myself. Asian online stores sell some of the most beautiful and cute stockings that you can't find anywhere else, and best of all they are so cheap.
Scarves is something that I wear every single day, as I am typing this I'm wearing a knitted scarf in the shape of a fox scarf quirky I know. I have had to find crazy ways to store all my scarves because they literally took up half of my closet. 
I find skirts are a practical option for every season, that's why I love them so much. Pair a nice skirt with some stockings and you have changed a Summer look to a Winter one.

I have seen how cruel people can be about others dressing uniquely, this is one thing that upsets me more than anything. I am a big believer in everyone being able to dress the way that makes them feel happy and beautiful.

I find it really hard to part with old clothes, if they are still in good condition I will keep them in storage and revamp them the following year and most of the time the styles have made a come back and I have gotten more use out of the pieces.
I own way too many articles of clothing and literally every day I look in my closet and think I need to break the chord and donate some of my collection, but the collection hasn't changed.

My style icons are Kate Middleton and Zooey Deschanel. Both of these woman hold themselves in a strong feminine way but each add their own flare to their outfits. 
Zooey Deschanel has a unique vintage look that I have loved from the first time I saw here back in 2000.

Being beautiful to me is being able to feel comfortable and confident in what I wear, which would be a cute dress, with my hair in loose curls with a small side braid. 

My friends best describe my style as a 50s house wife, which is exactly how I like to hold myself. 
Feminine, Vintage and Chic.

Fashion is something that will always be close to my heart.

Have an amazing week Lovelies!! 
Take Care Dolls and Love!
