Event: Anberlin 2014 Concert

I purchased a ticket back in July for the final Australian Anberlin tour. This was before the release of their final album. I have been a fan of Anberlin for a while (back in high school, just before Cities had been released) and with further encouragement from my sister, I decided to buy a ticket. After all, they're probably not going perform together again.

Along with Anberlin, The Getaway Plan and Breakaway were performing. While I've listened to The Getaway Plan before, I had never heard of Breakaway and they were actually pretty good. A lot of people were probably just there for Anberlin and for me, getting to see The Getaway Plan was a bonus (because I really like them too).

My ticket
It was held at the UNSW Roundhouse last week. Luckily I know my way around campus so I got in pretty early and left pretty quick. Before the performances, I managed to grab a T-shirt. It's probably the most expensive T-shirt I've ever bought but it's goddamn worth it for memorabilia.

T-shirt I bought
My "outfit" sans bag and coat.
Grey Cardigan - Forcast
T-Shirt - From Vietnam
Tank (underneath) - Wayne Cooper (bought from op shop)
Dark wash jeans - Neuw
{not shown}
Coat - Forever Ebony (boutique)
Bag - Baby the Stars Shine Bright
My Makeup
(I was testing NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, NARS Gina and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Monte Carlo. The foundation still looked good after all that sweating and water being showered onto my face)
Now, I stood very close to the stage and that was pretty much where the mosh pit was to be. Not so much of a mosh pit for the supporting acts but as soon as Anberlin were up, it became a whole lot of pushing and shoving while everyone's jumping around. It wasn't that violent and I'd say it was pretty tame compared to NYE celebrations in New York. I enjoyed the enthusiasm of those around me and overall, I had a pretty good time in the mosh pit. I also didn't mind shoving people back when the crowd shoves me one way. It's the only time I can do that without having to apologise. Will I ever participate in the mosh pit again? Maybe...

The Getaway Plan (sorry I didn't get any decent pictures)
Anberlin (I really like the different coloured lights in this one)
So the night just ended up with this:

No alcohol... just water the entire night.

'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…
