Clothes on a budget

Even though I work in fashion, live and breath fashion, I rarely spend more than $10 on anything, some might say I take spending on a budget to a whole new level... $12 for a T-shirt? nup too expensive. I think the most I spend on anything is shoes, and even then no more than $30.

My latest haul saw me buying a whole load of clothes from Factorie- who I think is a branch off Cotton On- where I bought a pair of jeans for $5! Five dollars, seriously. And in a colour that I had been searching for for months. Score!

(This is actually today's outfit, $9.95 for the tee-and the words are holographic! Love. and $4.95 for the jeans, bargain.)

It's pretty good to keep a guideline on how much you spend, I keep track of everything I spend during the week (food, transport, everything). I keep within my budget though. A good way to do that is to only spend the cash you have on you and no more, or to have a credit card and have a certain amount you can pay off every month and stick to that limit.

If you want to know a bit more about credit cards and controlling your spending, click here. Amex is always a good one, they have a points system for discounts and rewards, and they even collab with ticketmaster so yay for concert tickets.

I know it's hard to find clothes in that limit, and a lot of my friends have another way of doing it which is spending a lot on a certain outfit or piece and wearing it a lot. They have a smaller wardrobe which lasts them longer, but personally I prefer to have more clothes so I'm not wearing the same thing every day.

Either way, clothing on a budget can be hard but definitely doable!

Magazine Obsession: SRC783

I'm obsessed with this new magazine (which is Australian yay), SRC783 which is currently on it's third issue. That's pretty much all there is to it. (click here for their website)

'SRC783 is a collaboration between Christina Dietze & Nick Thomm.
The publication documents alternative editorial fashion, but chooses to focus on creativity, art and style instead of seasonal trends. Each issue of SRC783 represents a collection of thoughts and ideas that push our readers to form their own individual style. SRC783 magazine is published by The Drop Studio.'
And if you're into that kind of hyper reality/ sick art scene then you should definitely check out Nick Thomm's website (click here) his art is amazing!

Couture Appreciation Post

The couture side of fashion design, as you may very well know, has always been of interest to me rather than all ready to wear aspects, etc, so I thought I'd put together post of some designs I've come across lately on tumblr. (Credit to vincecarters.tumblr.com, collections that are raw as fuck)

Emma Watson / Wonderland Magazine

If you didn't think Emma Watson could be any more perfect, just wait until you see her on the cover of Wonderland Magazine. (The first image is my personal favourite.)
