DIY Punk Bag & Teru Teru Bozu

Recreate the look with Lara's punk bag and teru teru bozu tutorials:

How would you describe your style?

I don't take fashion seriously at all - I wear what I want. I don't dress age-appropriate and won't do ;). I wear a lot of vintage and thrifted items.

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

Only one? Okay, a Godzilla print tee.

Who are your style icons?

I don't imitate anyone, but I like how David Bowie dressed when he was young, I also like Freddie Mercury's style. And Vivienne Westwood's personal looks. Also ordinary people on the street and style bloggers are great for style spotting.

Do you have any favourite designers?

I'm not so much into designer stuff (I like to go for random and secondhand items), but I do appreciate strange and fun art, especially as prints and as accessories. For example Shiroi Neko team, Simone Legno of Tokidoki, and Junko Mizuno are awesome.

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

Secondhand and charity shops! Ebay is good too. Harajuku in Japan is awesomeness for granted.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

I customize a lot, I would make too but at the moment I don't have space for the sewing machine!

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?   

Forget about style rules, pick random pieces from your wardrobe and mix them together - you might end up liking the result. Play dress up like you might have done as a kid, with an open mind and have fun!

Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

There are lots of them, but Hel Looks (street style from Helsinki) and Harajuku Street style offer loads of creative looks.
