Actual Pain

Seattle-based brand Actual Pain have just released their latest collection titled All Of Them Witches. The current designs tap into the new age trend seen in the likes of Evil Twin's latest collection but in a darker and much more understated way. The collection has a great retro vibe to it and I love the sinister twist given to a certain Disney character. I also love their completely unpretentious video lookbook. Check out some of the designs and head to the website for more.

Three amazing dresses. I'd like to know where people buy these beautiful items.

Her hair is stunning, I love a messy up-do. I also covet crystal jewelery.

Such a great outfit. The skirt is fun and I'm a fan of anything teamed with black. Note: I believe a sheer shirt should be buttoned all the way up when worn with only a bra underneath. It keeps it slightly demure, especially with a high-waisted item underneath. It's cheeky, but not cheap-looking.

I pretty much want her entire outfit. Especially the t-shirt - "Jesus saves, I spend."


Love a good leather short. Unfortuantely I have come to realise they do not suit me.

This shirt is so hipster, but I still want it.

There is nothing more alluring than a hot mess.

Where can I get one?

Taylor Momsen looking cute in a plaid bustier and varsity jacket.

This colour combo looks familiar...I wore it in my previous post.

Can't wait to dress like this for summer, especially the hippie-chic hair.

New pics and op-shop goodies.

Heyo, yes it's been a while but I am happy to report I have some new photos/outfits to show. The setting is far less exciting than I imagined (behold, my loungeroom), but I was struck by late night/early morning motivation. Here are the results:

T-shirt from Supre, skirt, shoes and belt from Salvos.

Tank from Salvos, skirt from Factorie.

Shirt from Jay Jays, necklace is a hand-me-down from Aunty.

Shirt from Jay Jays, pants (with matching belt worn as a necktie) from Primark, shoes from eBay, belt from Salvos.

Vest from eBay, skirt from Savers.

New watch from Live and wristband borrowed from my sister.

Here comes the sun

Tilda Swinton, Style Legend.

I absolutely love this shoot for W magazine with Tilda Swinton. She is the such an interesting woman; a talented actress and champion for unconventional beauty. One of her best roles was as Orlando, in the film adaption of Virginia Woolf's novel of the same name and it seems Ms Swinton will always carry feminine and masculine identities in perfect harmony. I think the greatest thing about this shoot is it embodies the beauty and androgyny of the fashion industry, but also invokes various identities and moods.

Lets have a look at Swinton in action.

Daily breakfast: coffee and toast with avocado and vegemite.

Shopping list, Pete style.

Can't afford headphones, strap cheap speakers to your head with a sweatband.

Trying out the nail polish I got for my birthday. Looks really good, actually.

At Bar on Gouger.

Bright times with hot chicks at Rave Night.

We party hearty.

I have never been so colourful in my life.

Gettin' my glow on.
