Trend: Earmuffs

It's been a little while since I've posted something. I haven't really planned out anything so this post will be a little messy. I don't like to do posts on trends, to be honest. These trend posts focus on what's in Australian fashion at the moment, so I'm pretty much reporting on the trends that people living in the Northern hemisphere just had.

Anyway, I've noticed earmuffs popping up in shops from Equip to Armani Exchange. I actually think it's pretty cute but this trend will probably be short-lived (what I mean about this is that I can't see it popping up again next year). It's more like an accessory rather than something useful, as it only keeps your ears warm. Australian winters aren't that cold and I don't think we need to keep our ears warm. 

However, if you're looking for a pair of earmuffs, 
AUD$16.99 from Equip
If you want to splurge on a pair of earmuffs, they have a pair on display at the Armani Exchange in the Pitt St Mall. I don't have a picture of them but they're black, knitted on the headband and furry where the ears are and they're AUD$119 (That's the number I have in my memory... they're very pretty)

If I were to own a pair of earmuffs, I'd go a little outrageous and opt for a bunny one... just like the pair that was in a Baby The Stars Shine Bright lucky pack:


 After all, earmuffs can be cute so why not go all out on cute to the point where most people consider it ridiculous? I'd love to wear those earmuffs and what better timing for Easter!

'Round the World #3: Lolita

My mid-year exams are finally over! I'm not sure what I feel about how I did but that's not what I'm here for. I originally planned to add another entry into formal dresses but that will have to wait as I'm still thinking about how I'm going to make my dress. Instead, I'll be adding another entry into alternate fashion.


Lolita has to be one of the most well-known styles. When I say "Harajuku", this style will be one of many styles that pop into people's minds. It's probably one of the older styles too as it goes back to the 70s/80s. Of course, there are many different styles of Lolita - just like how there is in Goth. 


If you are unfamiliar about Lolita, please don't relate it to the book by Vladimir Nabokov. It has nothing to do with it. Lolita fashion is about modesty (usually...) and not about dressing up like girls to attract pedophiles. Lolita fashion is based on Rococo and Victorian fashion, so it isn't really unique but you don…

Inspiration: Ruby Red and Sapphire Blue

Ruby Red (Rubinrot) and Sapphire Blue (Saphirblau) are movie adaptations to the books in the Gemstone trilogy by Kerstin Gier. The general setting of the films were gorgeous. Some of the costumes were also very beautiful. While it is not a must-see film, I thought it was pleasant enough to pass the time.

Gwendolyn Shepherd is the self-proclaimed Black Sheep of the family and comes from a lineage of time-travellers. On her 16th birthday, she discovered that she had the ability to time-travel. This had complicated matters for everyone because it was generally believed that her cousin, Charlotte, had inherited the ability and trained for many years in preparation.

Gwen has the rocker-chic edge in her wardrobe, from the choker to the jacket. She's without the studded shirts and jackets, or her plaids. Don't forget the black eyeliner. It really makes her bright blue eyes stand out.

As the "Ruby", she has a lot of reds and pinks in her wardrobe. I love that red polka dot co…

Inspiration: Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's

Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) was the movie that made Audrey Hepburn a style icon. Givenchy exclusively dressed Audrey Hepburn in this film, creating the iconic LBD (little black dress). Edith Head created the other clothes that Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly wore. Most of the clothing made for the film were quite fashion-forward for its time and nothing looks outdated, even compared to today's fashion.


While Chanel had created the LBD in the 1920s, it was not a wardrobe essential until Givenchy designed the dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in the openingof the film. It's a sleeveless sheath floor-length gown and was accessorised with strands of pearls draped around her neck, a tiara on top of her beehive hairdo and dark sunglasses with a design reminiscent of Ray Ban Wayfarers (tortoiseshell frame). Apparently, the sunglasses were Oliver Goldsmith's Manhattan. Don't forget the black opera gloves.

The most distinct part of the design was the cut-out on the back o…
