SO I recently bought some new Demonica creepers YET again, because I keep wearing my last pair out. I bought them off the internet, because seeing as seem to wear them out so much,

Here is an Editorial I shot back in Melbourne. With the very beautiful Gemma, extremely talented Paulina and the ever charming Stuart.
I came up with the idea, styled using all Sans Pareil, and did the hair too!
the Idea is based on Sea Punk, mixed with a little grunge.
The story is a young vagabond just hanging around. I kind of had the film Kids in the back of my mind.

One of my all-time favourite looks is t bars paired with cute socks. I'm pretty sure this stems from my love of all things girly (the number of times I look at children's dresses and wish someone made it adult-size) combined with my other love of all things comfy. I far prefer these than just normal ballet flats (which I find too... boring?), and also when you want to be a little bit more dressed up during the day (i.e., instead of putting on my normal vans/chucks/nikes, I wear these and voila!). xH.
Here are a few of my picks:
(these are one of my top picks - the patent leather takes a while to break into BUT they are definitely a lot sturdier than other ones I've come across aaaaand they come in all sorts of colours!)
Topshop consistently brings out cute, inexpensive t bars - I love the outfit they put together (below) for these ones.
If you like something less girly and more grungy, ASOS is a good place to start!
... and then of course, good ol' Docs.
There are a few other pairs of shoes I've come across lately which I've been keeping my eyes on...
My friend has a pair of these by Rollies and I've actually never been so envious of someone else's shoes! They look so much better in real life, and even lovelier looking than the famous Clarks' Desert boots - and according to my friend, they are the most comfortable and light shoes she's come across.
My next purchase will definitely be a pair of loafers - possibly these ones by Shellys London.
Look how soft those shoes look! Bet it'll be like walking on clouds...

So we all know 90s are BACK and if you follow this blog you know that I (Robecca) am a 90s trash bag from way back. That is WELL established.
And through no great suprise I am sill quite obviously on that buzz when it comes to my wardrobe and I know I'm being real lazy when I post actual 90s inspiration rather than the designers of present day who have got collections based on it..... but fuck it. It's way more fun to look at the inspiration behind the latest trends.
1. Flannel/plaid skirts. They are so crazy in fashion and are going to be so crazy BIG, check out the latest lookbooks from brands like Lazy Oaf, Suno and Emerson. This stuff is ALL OVER THE RUNWAYS.
3. I NEDD a holagraphic bag/clutch. This picture is my type of porno #andidontevencare.
6. See above.
7. Brows. A good brow is SO important. A girl should never leave home without them.
8. Hair. I love Courtney Love's hair in this. It's cute little girl mixed with 'I don't give a fuck' badass-ness. Which equals perfect grunge.
9. Gwen Stefani 90's hair. I've always been such a HUGE Gwen fan. I'm not the biggest lover of pop stars, but Gwen can do no wrong in my eyes. She's so cool. I'm a total Gwenabie.
Dat hair ^^

Recently I sneaked a trip back to the motherland for my cousin's wedding - it was a super spontaneous decision but possibly the best one I've made all year. It had been about 8 years since I'd visited last and there was definitely a bit of a culture shock back then, but this time around, I loved every minute of my two and a half week stay in Korea - probably due to a combination of me growing up a little bit and learning to appreciate traveling and other cultures, and improvements in the quality of living in Korea. This resulted in some amazing things to look at and love... here is some pictorial evidence.
One of the main imperial palaces in Seoul.
It was the last week of August and the heat was unbelievable! Temperatures in the mid thirties (celcius), and humidity levels of a gazillion.
Not a bad place for a king/queen to chill out.
What traditional homes used to be like.
Statues within the palatial grounds.
I loved this brickwork.
Old school shoes.
I consumed about fifty of these ice creams to counter the heat... didn't work.
Random stairs - everything was just so pretty.
Another palace in Suwon - found a guard to stand next to.
Food! There was a lot of eating involved - Korea has a huge variety of dishes, and each meal came with at least a few different kinds of side dishes.
Case in point.
These potato pancakes were literally ground up potato and oil and salt. I ate them probably way too many times. They only grind the potatoes if you order the pancakes (as potatoes change colour once ground) so these were always super fresh and super delicious.
Cheonggyecheon - one of the ways Korea has changed in the recent years.
I also managed to catch a tour-train along the rural mountain ranges.
A typical rural village.
Climbed up a ginormous hill to a Buddhist temple - they are usually up high in mountains so that the monks can meditate and reflect in peace and quiet.
Where the monks study and pray - they allowed visitors to look around.
For any thirsty passers.
A typical Korean country side.
