My Fashion Inspiration & Wishlist

All fashion lovers know . . . a wardrobe is by no means a stationery thing. It’s like the universe – ever-expanding. (I literally have no idea if the universe is ever-expanding. I’ve completely repressed all memories of Science classes like the traumatic experiences that they were.)

Fair bit of warning – I’ve been feeling very 90s-grunge at the moment. I feel like bohemian and grunge are very much two sides of the same coin and I constantly spend my life flipping between them.

Like, look at that. Is she grunge? Is she boho-chic? We’ll never know – but we can say she looks 90s and call it a winner. Regardless . . . let’s get onto the wishlist.

1. Shit-kicker, zombie-crushing, apocalypse-ready boots.

Look, if you don’t think that black boots are an absolute wardrobe essential . . . I mean, I just really don’t know how to help you.

I had an amazing pair that I loved, who so valiantly fought the war against festival mud and sand and dirt . . . twice. Alas, however, they did not make it home the last time. So I’m in the market for some new zombie-stompers – and I’m finding some good options.

Those velvet imitation Doc Martens are also speaking to my soul and begging me to buy, but I’m trying to be more mindful of what I will actually wear and stop buying too much nonsense. What am I saying – add to cart.

2. Things To Layer

It’s 90s; it’s grunge. It’s delicate; it’s girly. It’s a statement; it’s subtle. The possibilities are endless . . . as are the purchases on my bank statement. *Internally cringes*

3. Embroidery

Something that I should just make as clear as possible is that I love duality. I feel like most people have concepts that fascinate them, or in some way tie into how they live their lives – mine is duality of nature. I love the way that the most girly, sweet things can be gothic and dark with just a tiny change. I love that light and dark are just two sides of the same coin.

Yeah, I know; I’m being weird and over-thinking clothes – but hear me out.

My favourite trends are ones that I don’t feel are limiting; I like to show my personality through clothing, so I love styles and trends that can capture duality. Embroidery is one such trend.
