Talking about high-tops in my earlier post reminded me of a job I've been meaning to do with my old chucks. I used to love wearing high-tops but mine eventually wore out and I am too broke to buy another pair. However, a while ago I realised that the important part of the chuck (the upper section) looks as good as new. Why waste perfectly good material? So I cut it off and bound the edges. Added the studs today as an after thought.I'm pretty desperate to get the other one done so I can wear them.


Found this on Karla's blog. What a thief. This editor has totally stolen my image
Ok, well I am being self deluded, but the red hair, the high top chucks (I actually haven't worn mine for a while because they ripped apart), even the gold jacket.
This is just killing me, I need my hair to be this long. Though my hair line is not as nice as hers so I probably couldn't manage that awesome ponytail.

luluella: what do you think would be more warm, blankets or ponchos?
Knee: Mexicans wear ponchos
Knee: in Mexico

Can't beat that logic.

Does anyone ever feel the need to girly up hammer pants? It's strange because I usually like to grunge up girly outfits. I'm just not that girly at all genuinely, but lately it's like I ingested sugar coated rainbow fairy dust, or something. I mean, I bought a black satin bow for my hair. I am NOT a bow person. I have always shied, no reeled, away from headbandbowpigtail sort of hair.
Anyway, case in point, I am girly now. Here's my girly hammer look:
Went kinda crazy on the photos today, but common, it's like I'm dancing!
It was so warm today and now it's back to bitterly cold (hence the thick cardigan). These pants are actually way too think for winter. I am thinking of trying to make some with grey jersey knit after seeing some Deborah Sweeney ones of trademe. I have a feeling that I'd never wear anything else.

Tried to get a closer picture of my tights, which I made by pulling apart some old ones and cutting around them. This is a major fail, but I thought it was a cool picture anyway.

Ok so another onslaught of terrible photographs. I probably shouldn't even bother because you can hardly see the detail anyway.
I got this fabulous Sera Lily top from Trade Me. I am so happy with it, I can for see it becoming one of my favourite items of clothing. She seems to really design for red heads, the colours are
sooo perfect.

I tried to find some images for you, but it seems that has shut down. This makes me so sad! There is not much coverage of New Zealand fashion and it was always a great go-to website. It makes me really sad because there is so much talent out there, and with C4 no longer covering NZ Fashion week, and Runway Reporter shutting down, what is there left?? We have NZ Music Month, which is a whole lot of baloney in my opinion. Bring on Fashion month, properly I say! They obviously need more coverage.

Gosh, I think this is one of the longest breaks I've had from a post. It wasn't even intentional, and I can't even remember the reasons behind it as I sit here in front of my laptop. Well, for one, I know that I had three exams last week and and essay due. HRWKNfln!!!! Are they even allowed to do that? Well yes, but that's not the point. I was a ball of stress. Now I am dying to post up the many things I have accumulated in the mean time.

It has been freezing here. 10 degrees if we are luckily, but often below zero in the morning. I have always wanted to say this, and now I can; I have been living in my Doc Martens. Yeah, I'm lame, I idolise punks. So what? Got a problem with it punk?! Ahhhhhhh......

I took these pictures at night, so that's why they are all over the place and why the lighting changes. I was trying really hard to get a good picture, but oh well, you get the picture (no pun intended...oh god I need sleep).Look I get gradually closer :D.
