Picture Overload: Outfit with Bow Headband

Hello there,

It's certainly been a while since I've posted anything. I've just finished all my exams so now I could actually spend some free time updating this blog. To be honest, I lost a bit of my passion for writing about fashion and I couldn't think about what to write. So I thought I'd just do a post on something I'd wear with the bow headband (which I made a tutorial on).

I can't get away with wearing it in my normal outfits because while my style is a little girly, it can't really get away with this cutesy OTT headband. The headband really isn't as wearable as I had thought it would be... which frustrates me to no end because it just sits there in my drawer. 

So basically, I pulled out the girliest thing I had, which was a Sass and Bide Vie Dress. The material is sheer so it's actually more of a beach dress but it sort of channels Snow White and Minnie Mouse with the headband in the summer.

It's very difficult trying to take a picture of yourself. You can see that I'm holding my camera because the strap is dangling from my head and that it's actually a photograph of my reflection.

My artsy thoughts kicked in. I thought I'd add a bit of eeriness by making this picture a bit dull. This definitely channels Snow White... I mean with the mirror. Oh and this isn't my room either. Currently, my room is a mess with notes everywhere.
For a somewhat better look at the dress:

Sorry for the very blurry picture but I was shaking a lot.  So this is my haphazard attempt to get back into blogging.

In any case, I'm happy to say that I'll be going to the US for most of the Australian summer. So I'll be taking refuge away from the blazing Australian summer sun. When the time comes, I might make a post on the winter trends in the US and predict which ones will end up in Australia for next winter. 

Meanwhile, I have to go back to studying for my last set of exams for the year.

'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…
