It’s kind of hard to believe that when I started this blog, it had a definite fashion/style focus. I did outfit posts and everything! And then those posts became fewer and fewer until they dried up completely. I still love clothes but frankly, I felt like a superficial idiot posing for photos in them. I’m no model. Or authority on fashion.
But I want to talk about clothes again because something completely unsurprising (in hindsight) finally came to my attention on Friday night:
The stripes, specifically the black and white ones, need to stop. How can I be 25 (26 in less than a month… Whyyyyy?!?) and already in such a massive rut? The above photo barely shows the full picture, there are plenty of stripy tops and jumpers as well as black and white squares. It’s all the same. So late on Saturday afternoon I put a ban on black and white, effectively immediately.
To make the ban slightly more pleasant, I bought a new top to kick things off. It’s Three Of Something from my friend Jo’s shop. It went perfectly with NARS Shiap (lipstick). I bought these Mavi jeans a few months ago and I’m still not sure about the return of low-rise, but I like the colour. And the ripped knees.
I threw on my housemate Bec’s brown Top Gun style jacket and went out to a party.
I rugged up to help out backstage at my local community theatre club. I wore Bec’s jacket again (if you’re reading this Bec, thaaaaanks), a beanie and thermal top from Kmart and a scarf I bought from H&M back in 2010 when I lived in Vienna.
The ban is firmly in place for at least a week. And then we’ll see. Sorry for the selfies, but I’m home alone for most of the week.
Do you find yourself wearing the same things over and over?
