Even though it’s a regular Tuesday in Australia, across the world in New York City it’s the first Monday of May, marking the biggest event on the fashion calendar – the Met Gala. Some of the most famous faces from fashion, film, music and art have come together at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute. In celebration of the grand opening of its latest exhibition, this year’s red carpet theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. In previous years, the red carpet has been lacklustre. Patron saint Rihanna usually carries the show and is sometimes one of the only celebrities to properly dress to the themes. But my hoping and praying paid off, because this year we were finally blessed with some gorgeous, heavenly fashion moments.

In a politically tense climate with a generation more socially aware than ever before, it’s no wonder activism-inspired apparel is in the window displays of fast fashion retailers everywhere. But when each stage of the production cycle invalidates what these clothes are trying to communicate, the feminist movement becomes no longer trendy, but tacky.
The Future Is Female, Wild Feminist, GRL PWR.
You’re not at a women’s rights march, but in a fast fashion clothing store. Instead of these politically charged slogans being painted in bright red on placards, they’re being bedazzled on crop tops. Instead of these powerful phrases being shouted into the air, loud, bold and unambiguous, they’re haphazardly falling off coat hangers, crumpled on the floor of changing rooms, and being dumped into bargain bins.
Since I’m staying in Florence for a few weeks to study, yesterday Natalie and I made use of our time out of the classroom and visited the Gucci museum! For the first time ever too, the original museum of the iconic Italian fashion house had some new additions to its exhibit, appropriately called the ‘Gucci Garden’. Feeling like Charlie in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, I clutched my golden, or in this case pink, ticket and made my way through the museum, jaw permanently dropped and camera at the ready to capture it all. Photos don’t do the exhibit justice, so if you’re a fashion lover and find yourself in Florence, put the Gucci museum at the top of your list!

We’ve entered the most festive month of the year, which means it’s time for my November Favourites! Before I start decorating our annual gingerbread house and plugging in all my fairy lights to celebrate Christmas, I need to run through all the things that made November such an incredible month. From falling in love with some new heart shaped fashion pieces (get it), to having both a digital and real life spring clean, to seeing one of my favourite drag queens live, November shaped up to be one of my favourite months of the year!

After years of falling in love with rompers on coat hangers in stores, only for my dreams to be dashed when the torso isn’t long enough or the cut is ridiculously unflattering, I think it’s safe to say I’ve finally found the perfect one for me. People say you find ‘the one’ when you aren’t even looking for them, and while they’re talking in a romantic sense, I hate to admit that even when it comes to a ‘top with built in pants’ combo, they’re actually right. Keep reading to find out where I found the perfect romper, and if you enjoy this post, give it a “like” so I know!
September is done and dusted and frankly I’m quite happy to wave it goodbye! The first half of my month was filled with dread and anxiety in the lead up to completing two weeks of prac for university, and the second half was surviving it (which I actually enjoyed! So much unnecessary stress!) Between all of that however, I was able to become obsessed with some new additions to my wardrobe, discover some new beauty favourites, finally buy some accessories I have been debating over for months and reached another blogging goal of mine!

I’m back with the final instalment in my RuCreate The Look series! The lip sync battle was fought and our new current reigning winner was crowned – condragulations Sasha Velour! – and so the ninth season has come to an end. I started my RuCreate The Look series as a way of combining my intense obsession with RuPaul’s Drag Race with my love for makeup, flatlaying and blogging. As the season and my series developed, we took a slight detour from the makeup segment of the show and I started critiquing the different fashion looks delivered in each episode. Today I want to finish off the series by celebrating some of my favourite looks from the finale episode! So if you enjoy this post please give it a “like” so I know and let’s jump into it one last time!
