1. My style is casual but still dressy (the occasion really dictates what I wear).
2. I live in my jeans
3. Favourite colours in my wadrobe at the moment is yellow and aqua blue.
4. My style is heavily influenced by living on the coast and I love warm colours.
5. I buy clothes which will last a few seasons - but I dress them up with jewellery which gives the outfits a kick. I love all the beaded jewellery that is on offer where I live.
6. The next thing on my list to buy is a pink bonds hoodie
7. I only ever buy clothing by myself or with my Mum, never would I buy clothes with my friends.
8. My style icons are Kate Moss (always has been, always will be), Nicole Richie and Selma Blair.
9. I really hate the whole mass produced boho and "new" vintage look which is out at the moment in all the chain stores, so I don't shop in chain stores because of it.
10. As soon as I get a job after university I'm saving up for a Chanel bag!

1. I think I'm having grungerockfunklolita-style, whatever that is .

2. I don't buy stuff from H&M anymore, only if it is in sale like 70 % . The clothes there are sooo mass-produced and I don't like that anymore.

3. My clothes..my moms and grannys and aunts and other relatives old ones, some of them are really cool ones from soviet union and so. I buy mostly clothes from vintage, second hand and charity shops.

4. I really like right now look with jeans, biiig t-shirt , canvas sneakers and big leather bag. it looks cool esp. with brown blazer.

5. Now I have tons of diffrent big t-shirts. Many of them are customized , I have added text and drawed to them . Many of them have really cool prints. Tomorrow I'm getting new one with Mr.Bean on it . It's adorable .

6. I have lots of shoes, but I've been only wearing canas sneakers lately.

7. Customizing and accesoring, love it . I have tons of badges ! really cool ones. I like ribbons ( not sure abt the word) with t-shirts, died in hips.

8. I have tons of bags too , but the big brown leather bag which I got from free is my fave right now.

9. People give me strange looks..

10. I love all colours.

most of all..if it's diffrent and no one likes it.. I'll wear it.

think edna in the incredibles --stylewise. the best look for me would be anything like looks like a flower --literally, frilly without the sap, to soften up my hair and eye glasses.

i wear high, high heels everyday, except when i'm rock climbing

if i was able to i'd wear skirts every day i would --i like the breeze! (although i probably could)

the average amount i spend on tops is average $30..cause i scour sales, thrift or go vintage and then alter, but most people think they cost more.

i can pretty much work with any item of clothing as long as i have some scissors, a needle and a thread, and some starch. i believe almost anything has potential with a little brainstorming

I have a soft spot for odd proportions such as puffy balloon skirts or shirts that look shrunk too much (as long as it isn't too risque) i guess it is very bjork like.

i sometimes wear my shirts inside out and backwards (not necessarily at the same time)

if a dress is cheap, but has amazing fabric/ color i'll cut off the bottom half and wear it as a top...the latest one is a salmon colored with an double accordian fold neck.

i used to wear tighter clothing, but now i like them looser

i wish my clothes were origami creations so i could keep folding and creating infinite outfits with all different proportions, and then take it off and fold it up and turn it into a pillow and go to sleep.

1. I don't wear flats unless I find a pair that I absolutely love.

2. I love pairing intricate, detailed and elaborate pieces with something simple.

3. I practically live in jeans but in summer I wear lots of dresses. I looove dresses.

4. I don't wear a lot of jewellery but I love big bracelets and (beaded) necklaces.

5. Apart from not wearing flats, I dress for comfort so I don't like tight, unfitting clothing.

6. I don't wear t-shirts with messages or writing on them.

7. I love exotic and oriental prints.

8. I have a new-found passion for belts.

9. I own a quite large collection of jackets and scarves.

10. I don't like matching my clothes in color or style, it makes it so uninteresting.

*I also love leggins, I think Im an 80's reject
*I try to make everything look overstyled.
*I love vintage bags, more than big designer labels, even though there's some exceptions

*I make a lot of my own clothing, most of it big vintage pieces, that I end up fitting to myself

Such an entertaining thread! Here goes:

1.Like to layer different fabrics & textures – very little prints
2.Not much difference between summer & winter wardrobe (just more layered in winter)
3.Can mix & match most everything in my wardrobe – mostly black, blues & purples
4.Staple: Agnes b. pants – the perfect fit
5.No jeans & very little sportswear ->though my style has become more practical since having a toddler around the house
6.NEVER animal prints and fur (fake or real)
7.Most treasured item: Sheer black Dries van Noten dress with gold rose print worn over white t-shirt dress – have had for 10+ years
8.Collect & love to wear vintage jewelry –current favorite: celluloid flower necklaces
9.Guilty pleasure: designer handbags
10.So ‘not me’ but would love to own: Vivienne Westwood corset top

<<<Lovely thread>>>
* I always seem to be wearing shoes that let the rain at my feet.

* I tend to wear summery clothes in winter and wintery clothes in summer.

* I love black with shocking colour (i.e. to defeat the purpose of being discreet)

* I buy things in extreme stages, like nothing but skirts for months and then nothing but jewellery for the next few.

* I use shoes/clothes/bags/jewellery as props to decorate various rooms.

* I can't wear the exact same outfit twice.

* My favourite purchases are always cheaper than cheap (not that all my purchases aren't ). I feel like it's divine intervention that draws me towards them. But I suppose it could just be that no one else would pay more for the things I fall in love with, and they'll hang around in a shop until I eventually visit. :p

* I get butterflies in my tummy when I smell the smell of second-hand clothes...followed soon after by nausea


* For as long as I remember, I've had an image in my head of the undressed body as literally, an artist's canvas. It won't go away and I think of what things would look like on the great white rectangle before I buy something.


* I'm a bit worried as to what's going to happen to my 'style', when I reach an age where it's not acceptable to dress like you don't realise other people can see you.

I love raw handstitching...anything with a simple handmade approach...anything with a one-off sense of texture.

Long coats...especially those military shapes that go just below the knee...

Shirting. I love classic shirt shapes. Of the English variety.

I'm not afraid of frills...especially love the kind that are a bit stiff and perhaps look a bit shredded.

Obessed with pleating and pin tucking

A bit rigid...a bit naïve...always romantic

Edward Scissorhands,Frankenstein's monster and LRRH are my style heroes ;P

I love vintage clothes with imperfections...sometimes verging towards a decomposed look. I get such an emotion for that kind of thing.

Tab-front trousers cut narrow.

Sharp,blazer shapes.

Bonus: Victoriana is my favourite period. Elongated cuffing,covered buttons,puff shoulders,leg-o-mutton...yummy!

I guess that's the jist...
