movie stylin’

hello ello ello! you can tell i’m on holiday can’t you! 

i watch quite a few movies, i really love them. movies from the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s i personally love the most. i love the stories, the characters but mostly the fashion. so i have chosen four movies that i think have pretty cool vibes and the clothes to help you re-create the looks. now these four movies are not my top four but i will share all the movies i absolutely love and that are must-sees a little bit later!

enjoy! xx F

 

CLUELESS (1)

clueless is oh so very iconic. it follows the life of cher an amazingly dressed american sixteen year old. there is love, parties, life changes and most other things that you can find in a classic teen movie.

“clueless” trends: mini skirts, shirts, singlets over t-shirts, high socks,  checks & plaid, slip dresses, hair accessories.

HEATHERS

well this one has WINONA RYDER! so it’s good. winona plays veronica who is “friends” with three girls all named heather. she meets dark and mysterious JD and they become partners in true crime. each of the four girls have a colour, the heathers are red, green and yellow and veronica wears mainly blue.

“heathers” trends: black (funeral attire) , button up shirts, blazers with shoulder pads, hair ribbons, simple cuts.

STAND BY ME

there aren’t really any female appearances in this coming of age film but why can’t girls get style inspo from a gang of twelve year old boys? this is one of my all time favorite movies, it features some classic actors according to the date of it’s release, river phoenix to name one (one of the reasons i love this movie cause he’s so cute).

9fbb63e8de43f561888fed13358bbd41

“stand by me” trends: stripy t-shirts, straight leg jeans, duffle bags, polo shirts, white t-shirts.

STAND BY ME (1)

THE VIRGIN SUICIDES

this visually stunning film is directed by sophia coppola who also wrote the screenplay which is based on the book written by jeffrey eugenides. the movie focuses on the lives of the five blonde headed lisbon sisters. the movie is a bit dark in an odd way, i won’t give away the ending but the title kinda gives a bit of a clue. the soundtrack is amazing as well as the whole aesthetic.

“the virgin suicides” trends: floaty dresses, floral prints, pastel, pink, school uniforms, singlets, pleated skirts.

Summery Things!

hello again lovelies!

summer is in full swing and i am super happy bout it! i went on a school camp for four days and it was very very hot. i got sunstroke and currently have tan lines in the shape of my sports bra, but it was pretty fun!

as it is now pool and beach season i thought i would share with you the bathers, clothes, beauty products, and accessories that i will be over using this summer! i have a newfound love affair with the bread and butter letter which is a vintage and nz made shop located on k-road.  in the space of a month i have picked up 3 things from there but you will have to wait till after christmas for the third as its a christmas present.

anywho, enjoy! oh and enjoy the weather too! xxx F

pink and red stripy polo

how cute is this! its a vintage dunlop one which i nabbed from the bread and butter letter of course, my favorite vintage hotspot! i love how it’s a singlet so it’s not too hot and my shoulders can get some sun.

silver hoop earrings

i love the way hoop earrings look with my bob, not sure why i think it just looks cool! hoops are a great way to fancy up an outfit but if your planning on playing a spot of something sporty be careful cause there easy to get caught or pulled. ouch!

straw hat 

this hat is my school hat and i have taken it daily to school for the last to weeks because i sit in a very sunny spot while eating lunch, and i realised that it’s kinda cute, practical and comfy. but im not suggesting to take your school hat to the beach but getting or putting on a straw hat is a pretty good idea.

rose lemonade

probably the most aesthetically pleasing drink i have ever sipped on. and honestly it’s amazing and im not generally a rose scented or fragranced fan. good stuff.

bikini

the top is from cotton on body last year, it’s a nice classic cut and navy as always goes with almost everything. and the bottoms believe it or not where five bucks from kmart, score! they are a little bit more risque compared to the swimwear i normally wear but their gingham and i’m not gonna look like i do now forever!

sun jellies bag

i talk about this bag all the damn time, sorry, but it’s my pride and joy. louis vuitton who? nah just kidding, but these are waterproof so if it drops in the pool (empty) it will be all good! cute and practical, win win!

dotty spotty dress

i picked up this cute dress for 10 dollars at the factory markets, its vintage and was a little big so i chopped the sleeves and i now tie them in little bows which makes it look even cuter. long flowy singlet dresses are must haves for me for summer.

sunnies

i have never worn these out and i don’t think i have the confidence to. they were my mum’s when she was young and they look very cool. but wearing sunglasses is very important to protect your eyes and also prevent early eye wrinkles. yeah!

mandarin

citrus is too damn delicious! this might be an odd thing to add but summer and fresh fruit go hand in hand so chuck a mandarin in your bag on the way to the beach.

fjallraven kanken backpack

although these pags are tiny you would be surprised at the amount of things i have managed to squeeze into mine, i use it as a school bag so plenty of books! these are also great for day adventuring, walking to a waterhole or a short bush walk.

book & notebook

if your planning on sitting out getting a tan you might as well expand your mind. i have to read while tanning other wise i get bored so i always have a book handy while away in whangamata.

kini top

this is a new purchase from cotton on body. i like the quite sporty cut of this one and the girly cute contrast with the frilly sleeves! pop on some navy bottoms and away you go!

scarf

i like tying these on my bag straps, around my neck or in my hair. a very chic accessory and make ya feel like your in a 60’s movie.

mario badescu green tea facial spray

this is the sh*t! everyone raves about it for a good reason. it’s refreshing and revitalising, i took it to camp and it was so nice to spritz some on after i had too much sun or got a bit hot.

aesop shower gel

a nice scented shower gel is nice for summer in my opinion cause i personally think its more cooling than a bar of soap. the eco store do a coconut one which is a great one for summer scent wise. this aesop one is geranium which i normally hate but as always aesop make is beautiful.

one piece bathers

i got these at a very cheap price from glassons last summer and i think im the only person that likes them and i’m not sure why. it’s pretty pink has a straight neck and the straps tie into cute bows, what’s not to love? fashion aye.

strawberries

ahhhh i love that these beauties are back in season! i put them on my overnight oats, yogurt and just eat them by the punnet. i cannot wait to make our traditional strawberry cheesecake, christmas comfort food at it’s finest.

cane basket

i got given this from my grandad filled with homegrown oranges which was very sweet. it’s now very useful for picnics and also quite on trend.

la croix in peach and pear

another aesthetically pleasing drink that tastes damn good! this one is lightly sparkling and lightly flavored, it’s a summer winner. perfect for a little beach afternoon picnic treat with a fwend.

avocados

what a lovely produce season summer is. avocados are perfect on and in almost everything. guacamole, salads, vogels, i could go on for a while… im sure everyone that is an avo lover has there own recipes to include these green things in.

bucket hat

$10 sale sun protection is the best kinda sun protection. this has come on two tramps and a camp with me and i did’nt get burnt (on my face!) bucket hats in cutey prints for life!

 

Untitled design (7)

another spotty dotty dress

spots and singlet dresses seem to be a fav of mine! this is another pink vintage beauty from the bread and butter letter that i adore so very much. it’s kinda see through though which is a bit sad but pretty nonetheless.  looks cute with the hoops too.

gorman bikini

on of my favorite brands is gorman although it’s a little over my price range when this one was on sale and was one of the only bikinis that actually fitted me well i splurged and nabbed it. atelier bingo who are the crafty duo behind the print produce some pretty groovy things!

 

if you got to here your a champ! xx

 

 

some things to cook!

Hello lovelies! it’s been a while but all my exams are done and I’m almost on end of year chill mode at school so I will have more time to do creative things! thank goodness!

I thought cause I love food and I have never met anyone that does not I would share a few of the things I have been baking and cooking lately that are darn good! I can’t wait for summer fruit, peaches roasted on a BBQ are quite tasty so I’m looking forward to that!

So enjoy! If you make any of these please do let me know! xxx Frankie!

Hello lovelies! Three cheers for the long weekend aye!

I did so much and while I did it I took some photos! Saturday morning started with breakfast at Bambina on Ponsonby Road. I had oats with berries, yoghurt and pear, and oh my gosh it was great! I really love oats. Porridge with coconut is generally my everyday go to.  And I had a juice and read the new Australian Vogue, it was a good morning!

I went out for dinner during the week and I got to take my new pink plastic jelly bag out, it fits so much and is so cute – I got it from the fairy shop.

Around Ponsonby, there are some really cool houses, buildings, and this time cars! There was a pastel pink car and it was so cool!

Anyway, that was a weird little ramble, exams are coming up so I’ll try my hardest to keep creating cause I love doing it!  Anyway, thanks for reading!

xxx Frankie.

 

my favourite looks from spring 2018 ready to wear .

 

Hello lovelies! it’s been a while but I’m back!

I only have two more days (!!!) left of school and I cannot wait for the holidays! I am going on a camp which I am so excited for! I love camps.  I am also looking forward to doing some sewing, reading and just catching up on everything.

If you follow the fashion calendar you would know that it is spring 2018 ready to wear time. This is one of my favorite times as clothes in spring are gorgeous! I have collated my favorite looks from designers I really love. I chose designers that make clothes that, if I caould afford it, I would actually buy and wear. I will admit I am a die-hard Gucci fan, and the classics like Chanel, Dior, Calvin Klein, are amazing I thought that the collections below suited my style more.

I hope you enjoy and have a lovely break. xxx Frankie.
