some like it HOT!!

HIGH-WAISTED bathers came into fashion in the 1940's. Now, 70 years on, they are a must have for summer.
Above on the left we see a picture of a 1940's pin-up girl wearing the most adorable high-waisted bathers when they first came into fashion. Now on the right is a style that i designed myself and surprisingly came out great!!
Now i know they aren't the best bathers for working on your tan BUT they are just so damn cute it's worth it!!
AND they're perfect for those of you who don't feel comfortable strutting around the beach in skimpy bikini's!!

Thats SERGEANT to you!!

..This outfit is ALL ABOUT THE SHOES!! and aren't they magnificent??

The chunky, ruffed-up, leather boot is what to look out for this coming season. We'll see this style in a work boot, military boot (like mine), and a cowboy boot.

Say goodbye to the pretty little ankle boot and hello to the 'i could do damage if i kicked you' boot. BUT do not be mistaken!! These boots can definitely be used to add edge to an otherwise 'pretty' outfit!! lets do the math.. blouse + frill skirt + knee high socks + leather jacket + kick ass boots = **BANG**

Good thing about a boot like this is that you should be able to pick some up at an op-shop or vintage store!!

my outfit:
*Vintage sunnies
*Decjuba jacket
*Nudie jeans
*ROC leather boots

Let me introduce my STYLE..

WELL if your reading this then chances are that you already know me.. but for those of you who don't, let me give you a quick rundown!!

name: Oli
age: 20 years young
residence: the fashion capital of the land down under- MELBOURNE
loves: partying till the sun comes up, and SHOPPING till it goes back down!!
random fact: i have a FEAR of going somewhere and seeing someone else wearing the same outfit as moi..

my STYLE beliefs:
*i'm a firm believer in the concept 'LESS IS MORE'
*all it takes to spruce up an outfit is one statement piece that says **BANG**
*it's not what you wear, it's HOW you wear it!!
*one mans trash is another mans treasure- and that is why OP-SHOP's are the bee's knees

Style is all about being diverse, so the looks that i post are going to be JUST THAT!!
*a pinch of pre-loved
*the odd creation of my own
*street style that makes your look twice
..and **VOILA** just the thing to stimulate your fashion senses!!
