Back to Basics

1. Elle Macpherson bra $50
2. and 3.  OMB (Oh My Bod) Pleasure State bras, amazing! I usually hate, hate, hate bra shopping because I can never find ones that fit and don't look like tacky christmas decorations for boobs. Love, love, love. $70 each
4. Muscle tank from Sportsgirl $30
5. Singlet from Glassons $20
6. Muscle Tank from General pants $25

I can't begin to express the pain I endure shopping, trying to find that plain white T that actually fits, looks good, doesn't stick to the bad bits on your body, but at the same time doesn't look like you're wearing a bag. I went into various stores just desperately trying to find this plain shirt, the one thing everyone needs as a staple in their wardrobe. It's impossible. I ended up resorting to the now "in trend" muscle tanks. I have to say the Sportsgirl one is actually stunning as a staple in the wardrobe. It feels nice and has a good drop. The glassons singlet was also a good find, though sadly they only had my size in one colour. 

In my opinion unless you are a bit of an exhibitionist, super skinny and have some amazing bras that you want to show off, the General Pants tank is probably not for you. I have learnt this from constant taunts from my parents about showing too much, and that less is more, and of course just learning that from seeing how girls make themselves look like trash these days by wearing those kind of shirts. I do like the thickness of the shirt but it is a bit of an uncomfortable choice to wear around the Boyfriend's parents.

Every good outfit starts from the underwear. If the bra doesn't fit and doesn't hold everything where it should be the rest of the outfit will just fall apart. I am not one of those girls obsessed with Victoria's Secret bras, mainly because I hate shopping online because I need to try before I buy.

7. Patch tights from Cotton on $30
8. Stussy shorts $90
9. Skater Skirt from Cotton on $25

I have been obsessed over a pair of tights I bought from Glassons last summer they had the same faux leather patch detailing as the new ones here. These pants had been through a lot and it was definitely time for a new pair. There is faded gum on the butt that I had sat on in Brighton out clubbing one night, the stitching has come apart on the knees, but I don't think I will ever throw these tights out, I will probably wear them until there is nothing left but a few pairs of rags held together by thread.

I don't own many pairs of shorts, which is annoying because I love them, they are just ridiculously expensive most of the time, and the other times they just don't fit. To be honest these shorts could look hideous on me and I would have bought them still just because I am obsessed with the pattern. I will need to do some squatting though to get that short butt. 

And of course the Skater skirt, the most confusing but at the same time easy to wear item of clothing. I just don't understand how girls keep them down. I wore mine yesterday for my first day of college and every time I crossed the road or the slightest bit of wind came around I would have to hold on for my dear life to avoid utter public humiliation. I do love it though and it was ridiculously cheap. 

10. Sportsgirl necklace $7.95
11. Cotton on Chain $10

I am obsessed with gold jewellery. And these two babies at just $18 was an absolute steal. 

These are the particular items I bought yesterday to kick start the start to my new year and new start at The Fashion College in Surrey Hills.  I don't wear many bright colours as you have probably figured out by now, I have adapted to a more minimalistic approach to fashion
Here are my mantras for daily fashion:
-  Less is more, keep it classy, gold jewellery, and a statement piece in your outfit is essential. -
