DIY Pom Pom Shoes:

Recreate the look with Jenna's pom pom shoes tutorial:

How would you describe your style?

Somewhat clownish, like a young child who was given too much freedom in dressing themselves. Lots of print mixing, statement pieces, pastel or bright colours, (or both) and general eccentric cat-lady style.

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

My rainbow polka dot 50's style dress. Especially fantastic worn with petticoats and doc martens, so you look particularly sassy.

Who are your style icons?

Anna Piaggi, Iris Apfel, Tavi Gevinson, and the people who wear what they want, and don't give a damn.

Do you have any favourite designers?

Oh, yes. The crazier the better. Romance Was Born, Meadham Kirchhoff, Lu Flux, Lady Petrova. The style of the pieces is important, but so is the ethics of that designer.

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes?

Both ethically and because of my budget, op shops/thrift stores or hunting designers on ebay is my way to go. But I do find myself obsessing over certain Dangerfield pieces, or Gorman. 

Do you make or customise your outfits?

As much as I can, yes. I have sewn a few dresses and what-not, but I find handmade accessories are easier and have the same impact. You'll often find me stroking velvet and playing with buttons in craft stores.

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

Learn to sew, even it means re-hemming or changing necklines. Recycling old clothes, making accessories, gettin' crafty with a hot glue gun and embroidery also add a personalised touch, and you can be as insane as you wish. 

Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

Pineneedle Collective, The Clothes Horse, Mermaidens, Self-constructed Freak, and Scathingly Brilliant. I love blogs that are beautiful aesthetically, but also those with happy, interesting content.
