The Shit Sop

shit1

So I just discovered this cool as brand through instagram called The Shit Shop, they are based in Germany and make some pretty mean jumpers. They are super swag, old school jumpers with ribbed cuffs and waistbands, adorned with big bold text and some with serious bling. They also have a physical store selling young German designers and vintage pieces along with their jumpers in Berlin that looks sick! Defs worth a visit if you’re in Germany I recon.  The girls behind the brand seem really awesome too, I have been lurking the crap out of the instagram all night very good viewing pleasure 😉

Trends: Chunky Chains

celine2(via: bagladyboutique)

Recently I’ve been all about the chunky chain necklace, not the long 90s style with a gold $ sign on the end, but a shorter 80s style that sits just on the collarbone. I have a rose gold one that I have absolutely abused this summer, its such a great statement piece, it’s so good for dressing up t-shirt dresses and it makes every outfit look pretty boss. I try not to go to over board with other accessories, I usually pair it with a man style watch and I’m good to go.

Girl Crush: Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne

This girl has such rad style, can rock a beanie like no one else and legitimately makes the snap back cap look good. I always admire people with enough style to pull off epic headwear choices. I am also just amazed by her eye brows, seriously nothing sexier right now then bold as fuck eye brows.

Her tumblr is pretty a pretty rad insight in to her world, with lots of pics of her besty Georgia May Jagger and her hawt sister Poppy Delevingne and lots of other rad models just hanging out. It’s defs worth a look if you like her style.

India Rose

India Rose, a UK blogger with some seriously MEAN style. The girl can rock a beanie like no other and she pulls of the most random gear and looks super hot while doing so! She is the kind of girl who can mix trackie dacks and heels and make it look legit. She also has killer taste in music, you can check out what she is listening to on sound cloud here.

I am loving the leopard print right now. It such a great way to add some excitement to an outfit. I bought a pair of leopard print leggings from Bardot a few weeks ago, they look awesome with just a black t shirt and flats and they are totally my go to outfit when I am feeling blah cause they just make me feel pulled together when I wear them. I also love leopard with denim and its super easy just to through on you don’t have to accessorise to much, just let the leopard do the talking.
I am also loving cropped styles and leotards for summer. Not sure I could pull off the crop top, but I think the 1st look below could be a really winner for the summer festivals, cool and comfy plus unrestricted movement for crazy dance styles ; )
Check out my top 3 buys below!

 

 

Off the Wall

Vans; the shoe of choice for cute skater boys since 1966. In my high school days Vans were the only acceptable shoe for a skater groupie like myself. Its been years since I’ve sat on the edge of a bowl and been impressed by a boy popping an ollie but just yesterday I purchased my first pair of Vans since like 2007. Not because I plan to go troll some skate parks for hotties, but because I keep seeing them every where and have that ‘my wardrobe will never be complete with out them’ feeling for like at least a month now. I don’t like to think I’m a trend slave, if I see 50 girls wearing the same t shirt I don’t feel the need to go out and by it… BUT! I have seen like 500 girls in vans looking ridiculously cool and comfy… AT THE SAME TIME! Now that I am a student and can no longer wear high heels while I sit at my desk for 8 hours a day I actually need comfy shoes that I can, you know walk in. So I have purchased a brand new pair of Vans, which you can see below there are also some pictures of other girls and boys looking cool in their Vans, its basically its one big Vans appreciation party down there. Enjoy!

Parklife 2012

PARKLIFE IS THIS WEEKEND! OMG! GTFO!  Parklife is the first of the summer music festivals and this year the line is epic; Justice, Passion Pit, Nero, Parachute Youth and of couse my favourite… FLUME! If you don’t know FLUME, he is a rad DJ from Sydney and you need to check him out right now! Usually, Parklife is the first chance to dust of your denim cut offs and everyone is running about faking tanning the crap out of themselves, but this year its going to be like 16 and raining so I’ve had to rethink my outfit choices. First up is what I like to call the ‘I kinda wanna pick up today’ because its a little sexier the number two, which is the super sensible and probs a lot more comfy option.

Ksubi Kustom Kompetition


The good folks over the General Pants Co Bubble are holding a kick ass competition to design your very own Ksubi Kustom vest. If you win they will make it… You know what, thats all well and good but when I read this “you will be able to experience the design process first hand and collaborate with the Kustom team to produce your piece.” I nearly blew my proverbial load. I have had a massive style crush on Ksubi for as long as I can remember, actually since they were frickin Tsubi! It’s like an old school love affair and the idea of like getting to hang out and collaborate with them is about the best thing I could  imagine. The Ksubi Kustom studio is located behind their Paddington store and looks like this..

I would be open to selling my first born to hang out and create here. Anyway I had a crack at a couple of designs, basically you have to use three of five elements; studding, painting, patches, bleaching or shredding. They said they wanted lots of colour so my first design is a pretty colourful, My Little Pony inspired vest; it has a rad pink hood, butter soft yellow leather across the back and décolletage, my little pony patches on the pockets and back, and some sexy studding! The second design references the current Ksubi Collection. The Crushed Crome pattern on the back and shoulders is from the current collection as are the American Flags. The Cross Dollar is pretty well known Ksubi sign and that has been painted on to the front breast. There are some studs about the place and lastly there is a pretty gangster All Seeing Eye patch across the back of the vest.

Let me know what you think, you can check them out here and here and if you want to check out some of the other designs or submit your own go here!

Metallic Knitwear, a mullet skirt, a kilim bag! This outfit is whoring out more trends than I know what to do with. But damn I do not give a flying f*ck, I love mixing up grungy pieces with serious bling. Its kinda like the MK & A hobbo chic look, you weren’t really sure why loved it so much, but damn it you did and you a cupboard full of flannelette shirts and oversized cardi’s to prove it. Bare legs in winter is pretty bullshit, but I think if you were going to do it, this would be the best way… aka with chunky boots that you can fit your hole proof explorers in to and thick jumper that has been matted with gold paint to stop the wind coming in. If you were real trendy you could even throw on a beanie.

Metallic Knits

Metallic knits seem to be this winters hot ticket item. They’ve been popping up all over the place and I am so keen to try this style. The cutest ones I have seen so far are the MINKPINK Foiled Plans Jumper and the Nude Lucy Metallic Jumper in Gold Lurex. I’d wear it with black jeans, a khaki jacket and some SMALL gold accessories. I think the key to look is dressing it down for day time with jeans and simple colours and fabrics. I wouldn’t go to wild with any prints, but that’s just me; if you want to rock it with floral leggings then all the power to you!
