The Travelling Kimono

Black Sleeveless Top - Thrifted

Earrings - Vintage

Drifter Shorts - The Travelling Kimono

Boots - Novo

Just realised this is my first blog post since February this year. Alot has happened with new relationship and moving house plus creating a new business with my partner. So this blog has been put on the back burner. If you follow my instagram you will know I have still be doing updates on there, but they have mainly consisted of selfies ha!

So I was a bit nervous with pulling out the tripod and camera and seeing how I go with photos in our messy lounge room. It was a bit of a spontaneous decision which I think is always best. I didn't spend any time rearranging a room I just went for it the way it was.

But I was inspired by these shorts I bought over the weekend from Sunshine Coast label The Travelling Kimono. This local business is run by two ladies who work alongside a family in Vietnam to create their designs. I love everything they have and the ethos behind their work!

Bad Reputation

Slashed Back Top - 80s Vintage
Belt - Vintage
Black Slashed Jeans - Factorie
Boots - Betts
"I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
You're living in the past it's a new generation
A girl can do what she wants to do and that's
What I'm gonna do
An' I don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation" 
This top is part of a set that I found of 80s vintage goodness, the bottom is a matching ra ra skirt. I like to mix and match with the both of them obviously. 
Its from a label called Wishbone that made their own fabric back in the day for their outfits so its kind of a type of batik print. The back on this is slashed and makes me think of something a girl would have worn in the 80s to see a cock rock band haha :P

Science Fiction

Glasses - Oscar Wylee
Plaid Babydoll Dress - Paper Heart ( thrifted )
Jacket - H & M
Rainboots - Merry People
I thought that love was science fiction
Until I saw you today
Now that love is my addiction
I've thrown all my books away
Spending the day getting vintage clothing listings ready for etsy but before I start I wanted to take advantage of the rainy weather. Rainy weather means rain boots and jumping in puddles. You are never too old to jump in puddles are you? :P

Feed My Soul

Bearfoot Tee - Bearfoot
Sunglasses - City Beach
Skirt - Supre
Shoes - Lipstik
'Said we will stand for creative culture
Nah don't wanna hear anything from you political vultures
Fight back getting sick of your repetitive nature
Need something to feed the soul'
If you were to ask me who I think is a THE band to watch out for the easy answer for me would be Bearfoot. Being a Sunny Coast local I have been frequenting their gigs from the very beginning and are always guaranteed a fun time on the dance floor. Exciting times for these guys as they are getting more and more air play including Triple Jwhere they are killing it right now.
