Interview & Inspiration

Hello lovelies,

First I'd like to say hello to some new followers! You can all like my facebook page here to keep up to date. I'd love to know more about you all, so don't hesitate to drop a line. Comments make my day :)
I recently had an interview with Celese from the Upcycle Australia blog, you can read the interview here, or simply read through the screen shots I have provided. The questions I was asked by Celese were definitely up there as my favourite interview. I like questions that are interesting, rather than always being asked the usual standard questions. Sadly, it is Celese's last blog post for that website, but don't worry she is sure to move onto bigger and better things!

As I've said in some previous posts, I'm heavily inspired by past eras and the aesthetic of the world before my time. The 70s era has become of particular interest to me of late and I came across some images that inspired me. 

These photographs were taken in 1969 capturing the style of women who attended high school and college. Back then, popular women's magazines were fascinated by what young women wore on campus and almost every local girl appeared in her local newspaper. Some of the outfits I see here are clothes that I would be seen in today. I love how casual and effortless each outfit is, I prefer this kind of style more so to "high fashion."

Purchased a top like this from vinnies the other day, this photograph makes me fall in love with it even more.

The next set of images were taken by Arthur Shatz for Life Magazine in 1969. All the women in these photographs are in high school, I can't get over how stylish they all are! If only I was allowed to dress like this in high school. 

mmm hello, this looks like an outfit I already have!?

Uni starts to slow down a little now, I shall have more time to post :) Keep checking back for more and like my facebook page to keep up to date!

    Thanks for the sweet comment about Australia on La Vie Boston. I am enthralled by your country! Between the fashion, the lifestyle, and the scenery, Australia had me at hello.
