Comme des Garçons Timeslip

Source
With the 90s making a comeback, it's only fitting that we step into our own time machine as well. Thrift Store chic is a very real look that is thankfully gentle on the budget. And it's fashion, not tacky so hah! My taste is definitely not deteriorating and easily swayed by the growing number on the price tag. I'm all too excited for the arrival of autumn/winter and I will get my hands on every ridiculously ugly jumper perceivable to mankind.  

This is from the Comme des Garçons fall 1996 line and impressively, the style holds up. There's no such thing as mixing too many contrasting textures and colours. The traffic will just learn to adapt. I like that the silhouette is preserved from being an amorphous mass by contrasting the oversized fit with trim bottoms, doing so accentuates the space that you brazenly claim in the world.

spring spring


If you lived in Sydney, you would understand that spring doesn't exist. It's a flat half year of summer. Give or take a few vital degrees, if I'm going to be pedantic about it. It's all about the aesthetic. This time, I followed the rubric because what isn't as revolutionary as floral in spring? Alright, I know, it's summer... spring... summer... close enough, it's hot enough. 

So here's a consequence of thrifting. Eventually, your taste will deteriorate and you will begin thinking that the most tackiest of things are deemed couture. I pulled out this dress from the rack, took in its brazen green that had the audacity to form diagonal stripes against a pink floral backdrop and sincerely considered my life choices and challenged the perception my friend had of me. We're still friends, although I suspect that is hanging on by a slim thread. I raised an eyebrow at it as I carried about the store which immediately lowered once I saw it on before the mirror. Eh... a good fashion is a matter of perspective, and I like to think its bold existence is how I should live my life. 

And green and pink are complementary colours, which is why it works! I'm a shame to my kind.
