Ziggy Stardust for the night?

Fashion

I’m looking out my office window down onto an area in the CBD call “Spaggette Junuction”. Its very heavily populated with ant like trails of motorway crawing at peak time south, north and west… under and over like spaggette. Out west I can see the distant ranges.. or the weather that slides down off them and progressively blankets the city. In front of me is the city, sky rises and big office blocks spattered along the skyline. Its like being right in the centre of a big puzzle, looking down into it.

I like my view. I’m a hop, skip and a jump from my favourite shopping street, my favourite local bar, and opp shops! Excellent! Even popping out at lunch time today I scored a tidy vinyl jacket. Considering I don’t like spending large amounts of money on things like that its a wonder that I managed to find one cheap.. Zips and and studs.. cliche but on trend. Just becuause it is 26 degrees outside I can still rock a leather (look) jacket at night! No one said you could dress on trend and under budget…

My look for tonight is xtra thrifty:

Metalic slasher 80’s capri leggings $6 Look Smart on K rd
60’s big round sunglasses give to my by a friend
Unbranded leather look vinyl jacket $20 Paperbag princess on K rd

I just haven’t decided which shoes to choose between yet however… what do you think?

New Rock Flame Boots

or Demonia Platform Buckle Boots

So going to see Wayne Anderson and The Masters of Metal perform tonight at the Kings Arms pub. Its a very dirty raw kind of place, but if you walk in there you know your gonna get accosted with good rock n roll. My genre tastes in music vary all over the show but I feel more rounded because of it. Appreciating lots of differnt types of music is like having going to a vinyard and having a taste of everything.. You don’t want to taste everything all at once but over a whole day you end up very very merry.

I’ve been rather slack over the last two years with my blog writing. However having changed jobs I’m feeling more inspired as well as having more personal time and flexability to write and share what I’m doing or recommending to you. Its Christmas and not too far from New Years. Resolutions? This is definately one of the top ones on my list. Second to that is giving my little Datsun 1200 coupe a bit of TLC and polishing her up to new – or Retro new ans she’s older than me – 1973!

I shall write more tomorrow – I’m off to top on my fruit for today – 3:00pm hunger!

Yesterday I was a Rock Star…..

events, Fashion, New Zealand

but today I am Cinderella…

The Music Awards were yesterday…

I felt awesome… I had a gorgeous dress, shoes that matched even tho they were almost impossible to walk in and there were photographers and alcohol a plenty.

Feeling like a Rock Star can never be under-rated! Feeling like a wild thing makes you do wild things… And some wild things should just remain secrets. I’ll store it later for the sealed pages of my memoirs!

My girlie company only had a “comp” ticket so couldn’t join me in the VIP area. I was, so to speak, “swanning around trying not to make a goose of myself”. Dunno if that worked.

I had an AMUSING time while it lasted.. The kind that you sit back afterwards and guffwar about thinking about it!!!!

I think I hyped myself up more than I should have. Or sitting next to people I didn’t know made me weirdly shy.
I missed out on catching up with a couple of friends too cos I couldn’t find them, and no one bothered telling me when they were looking for me. *sigh* I probably should have looked harder! Haha.

One lives and learns! It was my cinderella night. “Get the Car out and go home by midnight.”
I KNOW the pictures will turn out fantastic. I have a few from the offical photo booth in actuall photos (wow in this internet age) to scan and upload! lol

Exciting things coming – IN PRINT, soon hopefully!

Fashion now…

Fashion now.. sex later…
Current mood: sleepy

So I’m in the middle of writing a blog about fashion. I left the other half at work!

Mainly its about how much I just laugh when people are so desperate to keep up with whats in their woman’s weeklies.  Celebrities in magazines have access to clothes right off the run way, obviously not everyone else does!!

So what’s the point? Its a bit like comparing our dial-up internet with world wide broadband speeds actually!

I say develop your own fashion style and if you get bored of it CHANGE it. I’m doing that all the time. Of course if we all had millions in the bank if would be an easy exercise but if you don’t, what’s to say it still can’t happen?!

I was watching Ugly Betty last night and the wardrobe mistress Christina (I love her attitude) said “Fashion can make you feel good or feel $10,000”  I’d rather feel $10,000 all the time!

I think its true, it doesn’t have to be a Gucci bag but it could be you’ve spoilt your self with something little, or something that is bright or DARING… Go on wear something a little dashing or or a bit brighter than normal, it can’t hurt!

My mum used to tell me that everyone has a colour.  Winter, Summer, Spring and Autumn…
I think an Autumn… I have pinky red hair at the moment… Maybe the colour of a red fallen oak leaf sharply contrasted against the earthy browns and greens below it.

I have to get some pictures soon.
So Autumn-y colours… If you find what suits you and you feel happy and comfortable in!
Feeling good in what you wear is important.
It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well.
– Vivienne Westwood

But in saying that, make it your own!
I prefer to do something a little over the top, than half heartedly… It makes it more fun and who is going to remember you for being just the same as everyone else?

I don’t expect my kind of attitude is going work for everyone but if you explore a little enjoy and have fun!
Hugs and kisses..

Phloss
