Hey! *waves*

Welcome to my first official post - Yay

Without furthur ado;

Pic 1.

What I liked about this: Fluro orange fingers and toes (great way to spice up a monochromatic look.)

Ombre hair.

The clash of the shapes in the top with the chevron.

The boho rings and bracelets.


First of all. 


Jeans that weren't skinny, straight or boyfriend style; I don't have anything against these, but they get boring after a while.

The way she wore a usually repulsive (shudder) eighties fluffy cardigan, and it somehow didn't dwarf her slight frame.

Her beautiful smile 

Pic 3.

I loved how these friends took such a basic outfit, and put their own spin on it.

We have a bag that perfectly complements naturally wavy - and highlighted - brown hair, Doc Martins, and crochet detail.

Then sheer panels, mint nails, and sky blue eyes.


Now as soon as I saw this, I knew I had to show you. Blond on top, with bright blue ends (picture doesn't do it justice) in a choppy, layered, bob thingie.

Then necklaces co-ordinates, cat eye glasses, and a lovely personality! (the ultimate accessory)


Her hair pretty much matched her jeans, and I now want that jacket!


ARGHHHHH. This lass always looks amazing!

Deep green highlights. check.

Tiny rhinestones around eyeliner. check.

Velvet Scarlet O'Hara skirt. check.

Studs. check.

Steampunk/Goth/Theatrical/Punk style. check.

Worn leather lace-ups with a ribbon bow at the top. check.

Awesomeness. check.


Pink. Flamingo pink.

Apparently this result isn't even close to the original colour, which was bright, bright, bright, fluorescent, pink!

I would try it out, but the amount of time it takes to bleach my hair professionally to even a pale yellow colour is phenomenal, so that is kinda out of the question!


Um... Yeah, thanks for reading, and come back next week for my first DIY post; a gorgeous kaftan drapy dress

How would you describe your style?

03 January 2014

Hey my little munchkins!


My name is Vega, I'm the eldest of our crazy tribe, and something I am passionate about is fashion and style.

I see a lot of people who feel what they wear, is inhibited by money, social judgement, and, frankly, the shops available. And I know how that feels; but I want to show you guys how I deal with that; my style, and other peoples' who I find inspiring.

Now you're thinking "Well that was incredibly vague, what does that even mean?"

It means:

Street Fashion - well dressed people in a ugg-boots-and-pajamas-at-the-supermarket world (or town, or wherever I am at the time. Elegant pigs - tick!). These pics might be a whole outfit4, or they could be just a haircut, a handbag, or a pair of delicious shoes.1

DIY's - I make a LOT of my own clothes, jewellery and random knick-knacks, often cutting up "perfectly good garments" to Electra's (Mum's) disgust! Unfortunately, I forget to take 'progress' pictures, so I might end up showing you the finished product, and then draw a tutorial (that way you can't see the mess in my room, la-la-la-la-la, sorry mum).

Packing Guides - As we get closer to getting on the road, (fingers crossed) I will be researching what to pack, methods of sorting out (and throwing out) clothing, that sort of thing. I have seen 20-25 day basic outfit plans, but nothing more long-term.

Fashion Reports - (so official and snobby sounding!) Which is really my spouting my observations on the latest trends, whether on the streets or on places like (plaid shirts tied around the waist is very in at the moment, going for the sophisticated lumberjack look - and that's just the women, all they need is stillettos and stubble, and voila! (If you find me annoying now, feel free to skip these, just a warning!))

Op-Shop Haul posts - Because I love these places (yes, that's right, I'm so hipster. Because I was the cool form of uncool before uncool became a thing)2 But, these will probably be immediately followed by "Mum made me cull my wardrobe" posts. Oh well.

Hum. I think that's about it. 

In case you hadn't noticed, I ramble frequently, so writing concisely is a little difficult for me to achieve, for instance, this post took me over 45 mins and I'm not even certain that I'm finished. Heaven forbid I ever get a Youtube channel, It'd never stop :D 3 




(Randomly hug someone, or comment positively on the way they look. It'd make their day.)


(1) I apologize in advance for the un-professional photos, I haven't been able to work out our camera, too scared I'll break something!
(2) See Rhett & Links' "Epic Rap Battle: Geek vs. Nerd" on Youtube. Truely worth your while, Gemma knows it almost off by heart. 
(3) At first I wasn't going to include emoticons, but then I realised that I had to express emotion in a way that didn't come across as psychopathic. Instead I'll choose to come across as a text-crazed teenie bopper. Same difference.
(4) If I include a full body image, I have asked permission to do so. (I'm not a crazy stalker. Just crazy.)

What holds you back in the way you dress? How could you change it?
