I Maketh

I love love love the physical energy of street fairs and festivals in Spring and Summer!  My main woman and I spent a wonderful day together at one of Sydney's best street fairs (Glebe Street Fair)... we hadn't seen each other for a week! gasp! 
Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend... and international readers...hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! 

Just one thing... can someone please explain to me the point of boutiques.com/ ?  I don't get it.  Soooo...what?  It's basically a tutorial on how to cultivate [a famous] someone elses style by wearing designer brands?  hmmm...


Allow me to mount my soapbox ["you never get off"  "I heard that"]... I cannot wear anything that can be easily recognised.  The idea that someone can pigeonhole/brand what I'm wearing (and therefore, me) appalls me!  I was asked the other night if something I was wearing was by so-and-so designer... I almost choked on my glass of Veuve Cliquot.  J  And no it wasn't. 

You know that adage "clothes maketh the man" meaning you should dress how you wish to be perceived?   Well... hell no.  My adage is... I maketh my clothes (not literally)... I dress to perplex. 

I am very curious how you feel about this.

wearing:
vintage batik wrap skirt * sunshine tank * various bangles and finger candy * gold mirror lens aviators * bodylace (harness) by me... I Maketh...

More pics (of the fair) after the jump!

This beautiful woman in red is my soul sister... she's wearing a dress I gave her and that is the twin bag to the one she gave me...

Oh you and your friend are so beautiful, no wonder you are soul sisters. The colours are glorious. Your outfit looks like it should be mine, what great taste you have.
Rant away, I don't get the whole emmulating someone else's style. Surely it's better to be yourself, even if it is a little rough around the edges? xxx

It is a very Indian, Batik skirt that you are wearing. And you are wearing it very well, I must say.

The first full photgraph is awesome. You look sensational. Some people have sex-appeal written all over their attitude. That is you. And why would I ever be sycophantic?

Gahhh

I love Boutiques.com becoz it makes it very easy to find and shop for a particular item - black floral dress. Think of it as a search engine for fashion by Google..thats all..

If I love, love something I will wear it even if its instantly recognizable. if its a thing of beauty, its a thing of beauty. The beauty of the piece doesn't diminish just becoz a famous designer made it..For me a lot of the designer stuff are works of art and passion and I humbly bow down to such masters:-)

I dress for myself. yup, i am a self-centered person:-)

HOT!!! u r soo fit... and the skirt is envious:) want~ plus that flowery ring! where'd you get that?

Hippie Holly said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE...love the boho rockstar vibe of this outfit! The cheery yellow and the army of bangles is allll lovely!

Leia said...

You and your friend are such bright, vibrant beauties...!

I, too, don't understand the point/fuss over boutiques.com. I find that 'recognisable' designer pieces are done and overdone and worn by every celebrity and copied by every high street brand... I would rather find and wear something unique and interesting!
