White lights

My wardrobe has had a sudden influx of white in the past month which makes it entirely possible to dress head to toe in white. I resisted such urges and added in this denim shirt which is also a recent purchase. I feel like this is the type of outfit you'd wear on a fancy boat cruise, unfortunately, my life is not as luxurious as that, so I just wear whatever the hell I want to wear, whenever the hell I want to wear it!

Fashion in the 1960's

I've been watching the tv series, Mad Men, as of late and it has constituted my new found love for 60's fashion. The 1960's was certainly a ground breaking era, especially for women. The rules were finally beginning to be broken! The youth no longer wanted to be tied down to tradition. Gender roles dimmed, women became more liberated and with the help of the pill, sex was no longer a taboo topic. This meant, that long hair and pants could now be considered uni-sex. Women were allowed to show their legs or wear bathing suits if they so wished to do so. Even those that consider fashion a materialistic engrossment, cannot be blind to the historical influences evident throughout fashion. Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, Brigitte Bardot, Jacqueline Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn are all well known fashion Icons of the 1960's. Each of them played an important role in shaping the trends in this era.

I find it quite fascinating how fashion comes and goes. There are many trends alive in fashion today that are contiguous with fashion in the 60's. Trends such as high waisted garments, jumpsuits, high necklines, fun co-ordinates, wide brimmed floppy hats, stripes/houndstooth/gingham prints and midi skirts. I could not be more delighted to speculate the future of fashion unfold and see what shapes and influences it follows.

All black everything

Here I am, a month past my Melbourne holiday, and only just getting around to posting the last of my photos. To be honest, I've been feeling rather inane as of late. Working full time in a job I am completely passionless about is rather draining. Being forced to wear the same boring uniform everyday makes me feel further and further isolated from my beloved fashion scene. Fortunately, I have just applied to go back to uni, so I just got to get through a little bit more of this fatiguing job and I'll be back feeling like myself again in no time.
