Loving my three over one jumper that I bought at the Jac+Jack intersection store during the summer... it helped me out during some of the wonderful storm swims I encountered in between our hot summer days this year... and is now proving more than handy on cold windy mornings. Just bought this lovely soft viscose shirt from Seafolly, and taming it with a jumper has been perfect.
When having to use your bedroom as your workspace, it's important to make the most of space yet find a way to keep it clear and minimal so inspiration can move around freely/for the sake of sanity. I spent the end of the summer doing this to my room - clearing it out and making the most of space. I donated lots of my unnecessary clothes to Op Shops, and old craft things to my younger sister, my friends helped me too which gave an insight into using the space/stacking things in ways I could not see on my own.. It's amazing how we all view the world from different angels, some think green is green and some think it's blue.
I'm so happy with the final result of my room, so thought I would share it as hopefully some lifestyle inspiration.
It is definitely better to consume less, and value high quality, this is the mentality that we need for the sake of our own happiness and the well-being of our world.
- they have a great online store that you can either choose to have your items delivered or pick up from their Alexandria showroom! *Buy products with some friends or family members, split the quantity and spilt the cost, it works out to be just as affordable as non-organic nasty products.
My graduate collection has finally been finished and will be sent down the runway on 4th December. If you're interested have a look at my website www.sarahelizabethvosper.com for updates and further images!
In the Autumn Semester of third year (2010!) I wanted to translate flowers into my textiles and thought what better way, than to trap them between two layers of sheer fabric. I went about pressing flowers and arranging them with nylon thread in between silk organza and then some second hand polyester fabric found at reverse garbage. The result was really pretty, feminine, yet mysterious (of how flowers came to lay between fabric sheets and get stuck there).
I explored this technique in the beginning of my final year collection that is a 90% denim collection that looks to ways of exploring both feminine and masculine elements throughout it. Flowers are commonly associated with women and a representation of feminine.. so mixing delicate, pressed flowers with a tough, masculine weight of denim seemed like a good idea.
Being told it has been seen before and having floral swamping the fashion world right now it could be a smart move to leave this beauty behind even though it keeps playing on my mind... we'll see what the final decision will be!
Went the same colour as my denim vest when I came across this post on the MTV Style site! Thanks guys, and cheers to denim!
OK, it's edging toward the middle of summer and you're kiiinnddaa getting tired of sporting the same ol' hot weather get-ups by now, right? You just need ONE thing to throw on over your summery floral dress or tank and shorts ensemble to give it a fresh new look. Enter in: the denim vest. This standby has been around forever, and right now we are loving it in cool colored versions like a minty green or coral-y pink. We found three bloggers who sported it in THE coolest of ways, so let's check out their ensembles, shall we?
Anisa Young of Young and Seamless Blog: youngandseamless.blogspot.com. Twitter: @yandseamless. Anisa totally amped up her already-amazing outfit with a bright pink denim vest, and we LOVE that. She wore a black H&M sweater, PacSun tribal print shorts (need!), metallicASOS oxfords, and a bright emerald green bag. But, um, can we talk about that hair? Ombre perfection!
Sarah Elizabeth of Borrowed Jewel Blog: borrowedjewel.blogspot.com. It's OK to be jealous of Sarah because we are too. We dig her vintage-y cool style and adoration for thrifting. Here she wears a crimson Levi's denim vest, white tank, vintage black cutoff Levi's shorts, studded wedges and black belt. To finish her look, she tied her hair up in a side-knotted bandana paired with a red pout.
Mayo Wo of Mellow Mayoness Blog: fashionsalade.com/mellowmayoness. It's hard not to fall in love with Mayo's super girly style, which is displayed in its FULL glory in this ensemble. She wore a mint green Romwe vest as a shirt (smart!) paired with a layered pink and peach tutu. The best part, though, HAS to be the printed lion socks she wore with matching mint green ankle strap shoes. SO. AMAZING.

I'm still here! I'm just in my last semester of my degree ...so life is unavoidably revolving around that. It's a big fabric, dye, fit, asking for favours, trying to be strong, attempting to multi-task, loving work, trying to deal with a new iron deficiency and wheat intolerance (almost cried about the wheat, but must admit it has forced me to cook some interesting food to compensate! I reckon I'll definitely kick this too once the stress of this final semester bounces... can't imagine life without pasta or salad baguettes!) B O M B ! ...today I had a fun dye session with my friend and managed to dye white elastic into the most heavenly nude colour, I'll take a photo of it soon, it's too precious not to share, and just keeps making my heart jump for some odd reason! <3 Sarah
