the summer weather is slowly fading here is auckland buts it will be spring in hawaii so i can imagine rocking one of these on the beach.

* silk *

looks lovely, feels lovely.

* jumpsuits *

i’m only about five foot three so my hope is a jumpsuit would make me look a bit taller, can only hope.

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.

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).

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.

The things I loved in the Holidays.

sunday swooning1Hello, lovelies!

Happy Friday (for some of you)! Week one of Term two over and to be honest I have found it very tricky to get back into the swing of things.  For some unknown reason I haven’t been sleeping very well, I have only been getting about 5 hours each night. So school has well and truly taken a hold of me but I thought I would share and reminisce on the things I loved during the holidays!

01. SHOPPING

As it was my birthday in April (there’s a post on that) I had some birthday spending money! I loved walking around the shops with my mum, brother, and friends without a time frame. I got some gorgeous clothes and knickknacks that I will share with yall soonish!

02. CITY EXPLORING

Auckland is a pretty big place and I think there is nothing better than being a tourist in your own city. I walked down Queens street,  Walked around Wynyard Quarter and checked out the World Masters games entertainment hub on Queen’s wharf, I went to Devonport, shopped at Britomart.  I had a fabulous time!

03. EATING

As I had more time in my day I put a little bit more time in the food I made and ate and also cooked some pretty good dinners. Eating out was pretty damn good too! 😉

04. ROOM RE-ARRANGING

As you may know, I change my room around and update my mood boards almost every week! I had a blast with all my free time having a major sort out of everything and making my room look beautiful and cosy for Autumn! Tell me if you want to see!

05. CRAFT

I spent day’s chopping things out of magazines, I made my very first wall hanging, I did some sewing. It was really nice to have the time to do some crafty things. It sounds awful but I hadn’t for a long time.

06. READING

ahh, I read books, magazines, design books, blog posts, articles, newspapers. My heads a hive of information.
