Anyway I had ordered some gold studs from http://www.studsandspikes.com/ and really wanted to do a DYI with them. So when I was thinking about how I would accessorize the white blazer I suddenly thought of studding the collar!
A favourite blogger of my Cocorosa greatly inspired me in the idea as she had already studded a blazer, which turned out amazing!

I really love the comic on the singlet, it reads:
Man thinking: "How can I tell her -- I will never see her again--!"
Woman thinking: " He loves me, he loves me, he loves me!.."
BUT WHAT WILL HAPPEN?... will he leave her? will she tell him she loves him? Well you'll have to use your imagination!

Not really being able to dress as Holly Golightly I specially bought a cigarette holder, as it reminds me of her character and Paris ladies:

Tomorrow I am going to a 'fantasy' theme 18th. After a trip to the costume hire store decided that I could sew a costme for half the price and be able to keep it, sooo... I am making a mermaid costume.
I have been inspired by many mermaid formal dresses as well as the normal sequin costumes:

I really love white lace. Although it reminds me of 1980s wedding dresses and young Madonna I really have a soft spot for it. Photo Credit: http://www.zimbio.com/

The week went soo fast and was a lot of fun. I learnt so much about the business side of a fashion house, and just enjoyed being in an environment with such fashionable people.
I was able to meet Sarah Jane and Heidi who were both really lovely. All the girls that worked in the head office were very supportive of the brand, wearing Sass & Bide clothes every day. It gave a really great feel to the company , like that were all one big family. So it was really nice to be part of that even for one week. With Sydney Fashion Week this week I helped out with the preparation of the invitations to all the fashion socialites of Aus, and helped organise the samples of the current season of clothing. Something else that I got to do was sew silver stars on a Union Jack tee that was to be photographed for a shoot to be in Grazia, very exciting!
I tried to wear something each day that I had made: One Day1 I wore: Slouch Alert!
black zebra leotard (handmade by me), leather skirt (koom), boots (target), gold jacket (vintage), studded clutch (peter alexander)...
studded cuff (vintage), peace sign (hawaii), pearls (hand strung)

This week I have been in Sydney doing work experience at Sass & Bide! I've been taking outfit photos but will wait until I get home to download them from my computer rather than put them on from an internet cafe. Sass & Bide has been really interesting as I am able to see how the head office of a big design house works.. as in: the Design team, PR, Sales and Financing + I also have been able to meet Sarah-Jane which was very exciting!
I'l try to continue to post about things during the week, but it will depend how busy I am.
Tonight I'm also going to see the musical of "Guys and Dolls" which will be exciting. I'm sure I'll love all of the costumes and have all of the songs stuck in my head.

I'm Holly and I would say that my fashion taste can't really be categorized by a single style or look. My tastes change constantly as I love clashing styles, for example anything floral and feminine with say studs and leather.
When I finish school I hope to study fashion and create my own label. Fashion has always been something that was special to me as a young girl in primary school I knew even then that I wanted to spend my life around it. As a teenager I use my love and inspirations of fashion to standout from the crowd and have an individual look.
