I have never been an 'op-shopper'. I hate the smell, I hate that I wonder where the items originated from and where they have travelled, but after spending the morning scrutinizing ebay I decided to brave the smells and head to the local op-shop... hand sanitizer in tow.

Of late I have been inspired by one certain individual - who I will not name. She is beautiful and different, her fashion is a combination of old and new, her clothes clash, her hair is messy, she is tattooed and smokes.. but i love it. She has a unique kind of beauty, not someone your average Joe would find attractive, but she really inspired me to try something different.

I am not sure what came over me but my first stop in the shop was the dress section, for once patterns jumped at me, images were created in my mind.. had i finally opened my mind to the province of op-shopping? I even called in to a close friends on my way home to see if there was something wrong with what i picked out, i am proud to say - i am genuinely happy with my items.

enjoy the snaps kids xo


ok, so my initial decision to make a blog was incredibly unsuccessful.. story of my life. Not being unsuccessful as such, more so starting something and not continuing on with it. Today is different, after a successful op shop trip I have made an oath to myself to be dedicated and consistent. To be a prosperous member of the blogger community.

As an individual do not consider myself 'fashionable' or even knowledgeable in the fashion industry. My fashion changes day-to-day, I in no way consider my 'style' to be vintage, alternative, funky, modern, not even a combination. My fashion sense (although I do not like using that term) derives from other peoples fashion, copying is one word for it, but I believe I take something I like, and use it in my own way. I believe everything is extracted from something, no one or nothing is 'original' but an elaboration, expansion, or derivative of something else, and I am fine with that.

I have a varied source of inspirations from magazines to blogs, individuals to stores, through out my posts I will more then likely to refer to them, so stay tuned.

I am here to share my thoughts and feelings, what i am eating, what i am wearing, what i am watching and what i am listening to.

so here goes.....xo
