We have something to share, we’ve been living a bit of a double life…Val and I were having a discussion on our clothes. As lovers of fashion, we are committed to posting fashion posts, however, we realised that we are actually not your typical fashion bloggers! We have never bought clothes online, don’t own a thing from ASOS, don’t own a pair of strappy heels, and we find it difficult to buy… full priced items (shhh! We’re only students!) But on further discussion, we realised that it’s okay! Fashion is not just keeping up with the latest trends, it’s about having fun, dressing to try new things, feeling fabulous and developing your own personal sense of style. We can’t offer you an insiders knowledge to selecting things for your online shopping basket, but we can offer you some tips on putting outfits together, and trying new fun combinations.

Exhibit A, my checkered happy pants. Received as a gift from our darling friend Cheryl, she picked up it up from her local Salvos and gifted them to me! Now baggy pants are often not the most flattering pants you can chuck on, but pair them with some heels to add length and flatter your ankles, it works a dream. The MARCS Camel coat was purchased from a salvos in Camberwell, slinky black top from Dotti for $15 and those peep toes, can’t remember guys! I love my A line top, I actually bought it about 2 years ago and it’s a such great addition to my wardrobe because it’s  so great to pair with skirts and pants. Fashion Tip! If you’re ever in need for some coats for Winter, get to your local op shop at the start of autumn/winter, people start to clear out their closets and opshops have to discount all their winter wear because they have too much stuff!

So now that the truth is out that we’re not true fashion bloggers. I will, without any hesitation, share all our little fashion tips, our advice on looking good on a student budget, dressing with class with minimal effort and do away with the misconception that fashion is all about the trends. Fashion is fun!
