Bright pastels - LMFF

Lovely, no? The longer jacket is nice, the colours just pop! Simple, summery, yet not the least boring.

Ruby Rose - LMFF

Ruby Rose is a MTV presenter here in Australia, a bit of celebrity spotting at LMFF :D

Did you know that my business cards are in pink? Not pale baby, not baby pink, but hot pink, oh yes! As a designer I hold no discrimination against any colour, but when one says pink, it brings up so many automatic associations, like girly, pretty, childhood, I guess I wanted to challenge that in a way. Did you also know that I own no item of clothing in pink? Sure some patterned dresses might have bits of pink on them, but nothing in a solid shade of pink. Funny isn’t it?

Pink is a bold colour to wear and I think this lovely lady below is also trying to challenge the image of pink in her own way.

Do you all have pink clothes? And what’s your idea about pink?

Saturday night, 10.30pm, a girlfriend and I arrive at a unremarkable blue door with a security guard outside and a silver sign that says MOONBASE. “This must be it!” I squeal. Moonbase had a rotation of DJs, an accordion player that one of the hosts met on the tube, a roof terrace, a ball pit involving 500 coloured balls and many intergalactic creatures.

It was fancy dress, if you haven’t guessed that yet. This is what it said on the facebook event page: Every millennia an enigma takes place, one which hails upon all life of the universe to unite under one cause and on one planet… DISCO GALAXIA is here! In the name of strengthening inter-galactic peace we would like to invite you to the biggest party in the universe. From the 8 corners of the cosmos every intelligent life form from Space Rangers to Cosmic Freaks will join for outer space disco festivities. Get yoll shiny shit on and charge the Cosmic Peace Laser because you know no one knows how to party like a DISCO GALAXIA party!

So how did I get such crazy friends? Who cares! But most importantly what did I wear?!

Spaced out - Intergalactic house party

Voila! Remember the Balenciaga rip offs I’d been eyeing at Topshop, this was one of them, it’s so short! I never wear anything so short, but with 2 layers of tights, I figured what the hell, just do it. I’m going for a bit of futuristic chic here, black, silver, nice splash of colour, bold and geometric pattern. The black tights, oh they were fun! I got them from Primark, 5 pairs for £2, so I cut up 1 pair, tried them on and cut up another with slight adjustments for the night.

Self portraits without a tripod and a remote is simply impossible, I had to rely on the crusty dirty mirror in the living room. Urgh.

So here’s the break down of the outfit.
Top: American Apparel (it’s actually a dress)
Skirt: Topshop
Silver tights: Urban Outfitters
Black tights: Primark with homemade holes
Shoes: H&M

Oh those shoes, I am so in love with shoe chunky heels and how they make my legs look. If I didn’t have to walk, I’d live in these shoes forever! Forever! Ok… just until I fall in love with the next pair of shoes…

Here are some shots from the night.

Seems like most intergalactic beings favour shiny legs.

He had a camera phone!!! As in a camera taped to a phone, as in Flight of the conchords.

And on that note, I’d like to take this post out with a binary solo: 01011001011011110111010100100000011000010111001001100101001000

Ali’s ex bought her the dress 2 years ago from Peel, I was quite surprised, considering maxi weren’t in fashion then and this dress looks great right now.
